Visited with a friend a few weeks back for a drag show. It was a terrible venue for this type of thing. We couldn't see the performers on stage which was really disappointing. Went to the bar at one point, the service was very slow and when we eventually were served we were given the wrong drinks. I definitely wouldn't... More

Very slow service, food definitely wasn't worth the wait. Definitely not a fresh burger and certainly not worth €13.50.

We were there for a concert with the John Byrne Band and Home Brew. Concert was great. Venue was a little small but it worked out OK.

Bar man was very friendly and beers were nice and cold. Ordered a starter of fish cakes as just wanted something small to eat. I received exactly that. One bland fish cake complete with a few plain lettuce leaves with no dressing. €6.95 absolute rip off. Myself and my friends were given our bill and bill was under €30 so... More

This hotel is in a great location for temple bar. The staff were friendly, and the breakfast was good to. When we arrived we had ear plugs left in our room, and immediately thought OMG were not going to sleep tonight, but we didn't hear anything for the 2 nights we were there.

Firstly the positives, the hotel is in a great location, ideally base for exploring the city with some good bars and eateries nearby. The bar is really friendly with a relaxed atmosphere but bar service could be a bit on the slow side (the main bar seemed dreadfully understaffed- even on a weekend!) The staff we encountered were pleasant enough... More

Stopped at Le petit parisien which is one the cafes in the mercantile. Was adorable. Had lovely little features within and was very quirky. Staff were all friendly. Stayed for lunch and they did a great deal. Roasted pepper soup was the soup of the day and it was amazing and the quiche/sandwiches were also amazing. Shame we couldn't fit... More

Not for dinner. We had a family dinner and the value for money was not there. Good intentions on the plate but far from the price they charge. Service slow, but it was a Saturday night and the place was full. I will go back, for beers and nibbles

Popped in here for lunch. Very French style. Friendly (Peruvian) waiter. Three course lunch sensibly priced and delicious. Couldn't fault it. Will certainly call in again when next visiting Dublin.
