“Very fresh, tasty food with excellent staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

We visited here last Saturday and thoroughly enjoyed our meal! The restaurant is in a lovely old building by the river. There is some lovely features in the room like the original fireplace etc and nice music playing. The room was a little bright though, maybe if it was a bit darker it would be more romantic/atmospheric but it wasnt a big deal at all.
We had the mezza for 2 people which allowed us to sample lots of dishes and excellent value at 38 euro....The two ladies serving us were very attentive without being intrusive and seemed really genuine and friendly.
The food was really fantastic, everything is so fresh and at one point we could smell fresh herbs from the table next to us! We would definitely revisit this restaurant and recommend to anyone. You can also bring your own wine with no corkage which is a huge bonus in the current climate. If you fancy something different, really tasty with all fresh ingredients and very accommodating staff then visit this little gem! :)

“top eatery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

We were there on Friday night and had a great time. As an Aussie living in Ireland i have missed the BYO eateries. Fortunately Aisha's is on the ball here.
The food was fantastic - all beautifully fresh and the quantity was brilliant, well maybe a bit too big for us women :-)
Service was a little slow at first but that soon improved and the staff were very friendly and interested in suggestions. My only complaint was there were no Lebanese desserts, but it was explained to me that the customers preferred the larger western desserts - silly customers!
Excellent value for money with the night costing €20 each. Will definitely be going back, thanks guys.

“Great ambience and food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I just stumbled across this cafe on a Saturday night and we were seated immediately. It's very cosy, very attentive staff, even the chef came out to check on everyone. I'd highly recommend the food, and the presentation was superb. The menu has plenty of choices from breakfast, a small snack up to full evening a la carte. Do try the delicious Toblerone cheesecake!

“Great wee spot for decent food at great prices.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Fab value Eastern Mediterrean meets Irish fine food bistro for breakfast, lunch and evening meals. BYOB.
There for a birthday dinner and not disappointed by the welcome, food, service or atmosphere.
Very accommodating BYOB policy - so your favourite bottled beverage will get to the table.
Very approachable chef and staff
Recommended.
