We found this gem in the midst of busy, bustling Temple Bar. A lovely young lady out front beckoned us in with a sweet mile and a tempting menu. We were not disappointed at all! It was busy and lively inside...we were seated upstairs with a grand view of the festive Christmas tree. Our server, though quite busy, was attentive... More

We ate here on our first night and it was not our last visit. It was My very favourite Guiness Stew and I think I had it at least 4 times while in Ireland. Beer was excellent and so was the service.

Not sure how this is in the top 100 restaurants in Dublin. Ate here as a group of three. I had cottage pie. It was a nicely prepared dish, but was very bland. Not sure if thats just how most irish food is, but it was nothing special. Came with the same generic pre-frozen "chips" or fries that every pub... More

We had our evening meal here on Saturday, the food portions were big and it was very nice food however we had 4 burgers and chips, 1 prosseco, 2 pints and 2 diet cokes and it cost us £93, I just feel it was a little expensive for what it was. The tables are long dining tables so we had... More

My wife and I had lunch and dinner at the Quays. Our waiter was excellent and gave good advice on what to choose. The food was good quality at good prices and large portions. The location of the pub/restaurant is in the middle of the vibrant Temple bar area. Downstairs there was good musical entertainment in a packed bar area.

The Quays is beautiful but the last attractive part is the upstairs restaurant where uncomfortable tables are shoved under a low ceiling too close to each other and the upstairs bar almost as an afterthought. The food is good but overshadowed by other local eateries. I would urge an upgrade compatible with the fine location. Staff was friendly and attentive... More

Located in Temple Bar this was a nice place I wish I had visited a second time. I only got a starter but the food was lovely and the staff were very attentive and friendly. Reasonably priced, would recommend.

Stopped in for a small bite to eat, had the wings and the vegetable soup with cheesy garlic bread. Out of this world. Loved it. Atmosphere was nice, it's a cozy restaurant with good service.

We ate here today and was very impressed with the food. We had a young lady from Boston, U.S. serving us and she was very polite and cheerful. She recommended me a great Irish beer called Kilkenny, for a substitute to Guinness which was lovely.
