I was invited to lunch here, and as I am not local, had no expectation bar good company. I was pleasantly surprised with the whole meal and service, and have to explain why only rating 4. If I had known that this was considered one of the top 10 restaurants in SA, I would have been a little more critical in my expectation. Although the food was effortlessly presented, and well put together, I did find it very rich, and the combination of lamb and game did not work well for me. The service was good when it was quiet, but the staff were not truly listening to what we ask, and we had to repeat a couple of requests again. Knowing the caliber of restaurants in Dublin such as Chapter One, L'Ecrivain, One Pico and Roly's Bistro to name a varied few, I think that the owners would not be amiss to put the WOW back into their delivery and service. It was good, no doubt - but it was not as good as the reputation I heard of afterwards.
