A party of 21 of us came here for a late lunch. We had the set 2 course lunch menu, although it was the hottest day of the year so far, and a lot of the team went for the irish stew, the food was excellent! The staff were kind and very attentive, and we thought it was bad for... More

I was pleased with this as a choice as soon as we were shown to our seat. Nice atmosphere and great service. The servings were hearty fare which were generous and tasty. We shared a portion of the famous brown bread and baileys ice cream which was yummy.

We were only in Dublin for a long weekend but the food was so amazing, we actually went twice. Amazing Cottage Pie and something called the Coddler which is Bangers and Mash sitting in a bowl of Irish Stew. You will not be disappointed.

My family and I had just checked in at the apartment just up the street and we were hungry. We naturally wanted some typical Irish food and the receptionist recommended The Quays. We went upstairs and we were promptly directed to a table. The staff were efficient and friendly. We were glad we'd ordered the Irish feast for two, which... More

We took a rickshaw from our hotel on O'Connell Street to the Quays restaurant on a Saturday night. We did book beforehand for 8pm but even on a very busy night in Dublin you would probably get a table after short wait. We just had the main course, there was plenty of choice but we chose traditional Irish having the... More

We stopped in for an early dinner and ordered off the lunch menu. It is available until 6pm. I had ordered the cottage pie and Caesar salad and the waiter suggested I only pick one because the portion are dinner sized. Of course I went and ordered both! He was right, the portions are filling. I really enjoyed the cottage... More

My girlfriend and I ate here during a driving golf/distillery holiday of Scotland/Ireland in August 2015. This place was very busy, and we had to wait at the bar until a table was ready, but it only took 20 minutes. The food choices are plentiful, and the serving sizes good. We enjoyed our meal and left full and satisfied. It... More

We stubbled across this restaurant in the busy part of Dublin. Waiter was friendly and helpful when I asked for the gluten free menu which was part on the main menu. The food omg I haven't tasted food as good as that for such a long time. It was so flavourous. Only down side was it was hot in there,... More

A very busy restaurant. We visited the place twice, since we went for dinner and for just coffee and dessert the day after. Friendly staff. Good quality of food and cosy place.
