“Fantastic Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

From the service, wine, starter, main course and desert this place was outstanding. Above O'Brians Bar. Hard to find and little known but well worth the search. Dont miss it.

“"Good Honest Irish Food"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

This brasserie-style operation is a bit of an unexpected gem. It's located above a popular pub nearby to the Leeson Street bridge and advertises itself as providing "good honest Irish food". Their menu has the usual staples (like steak sandwich, shepherds pie, a hearty burger and fish'n'chips) along with some usually interesting daily specials. The quality of the domestically sourced produce and the obviously careful cooking certainly comes through in each dish. Added to that, it has a fresh and bright atmosphere, the service is friendly and efficient and the pricing is really very fair indeed. Well worth seeking out and definitely deserves to do well.

“Eat here!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013 via mobile

Fantastic find! What looks like a pretty regular pub has an amazing gem of a restaurant upstairs. Great food, decent prices and good service ... What more would you want really. Location is a bit out of the main city but this is a great spot if you are going to Aviva .. Maybe a 20 min walk

“Terrific do not miss!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Terrific restaurant, food and drinks! Make a reservation because though they have a great space, it fills up quickly. While we were there, many people were turned away because of space. Food is very good, but desserts are a bit on the small side.

“Great for lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

I have eaten lunch in here over 100 times in the last year. It shouldn't have taken me so long to write a review! This restaurant is great for lunch. Reasonably priced, nice service, very very fresh food. The fish of the day is always good. I have never tired of the food in this place because it is so fresh and guaranteed to taste great.
