Lunch, sorry not again

Stopped here on way to Kerry and it's amazing how things change. This place used to be so good but no. Mushroom soup tasted of nothing literally no flavour at all, very odd. My... read more

Five of us went here for dinner. Waitress was exceptionally good, fun loving, and made for a great evening. Two of us ordered the mussels, one ordered the seafood pot, and two ordered fresh fish. Food gets an A+ for quality, freshness, and serving size. My wife and I later agreed that we could have split mussels or the seafood... More

Second time I visited this nice seafood restaurant and bar. Both times I have eaten outside. Great service and really nice fresh menu. Oysters are superb and Irish cheese board can't be beat. Both times the service was professional and attentive. Nice menu selection and a very warm charming atmosphere. Highly recommend!!

I am on a food tour of Dublin D4 at the moment. Eating out once or twice in good places a fortnight. I really enjoyed this experience. I had a salmon starter with a monkfish special for the main. The food isnt pretensious here, everything on the plate was perfectly cooked and presentation was beautiful. I will be back there... More

We had the most wonderful valentines dinner, we were served first class food and wine by the wonderful team at Matt the Thrashers. Everyone we encountered was extremely professional, helpful and courteous. To top it all off we won the evening on a Facebook competition. It was a wonderful night and I can't recommend this venue highly enough. We are... More

There is a different Matt the Thrasher premises on the Limerick road I believe, & it seems this premises in Dublin, is getting their reviews, which is a shame. Tripadvisor should remove the unwarranted comments from this profile. Because.This gastro pub is a real treat!! Finest of fresh fish & seafood served, I have dined here many times & always... More

Stopped here with a friend on the road to the West. What a lovely place. The very charming owner invited us to sit at a nice table by the fire, and told us the specials. We chose to have the seafood gratin which was delicious. Just perfect with a chilled glass of Sauvignon blanc. We really enjoyed our visit. Our... More

We stopped here on our way to Limerick last week amd were greeted by a lovely lady who seated us and gave us the menu which had a good choice. Really nice decor. The food is nice, I had the organic sausages and mash with Guinness gravy, good portion and tasted very nice. I would be happy to return.
