Came here because of a trip advisor review. It is a little tricky to find parking on the street near the restaurant. Service was great and quick and food was delicious. In and out in about an hour. Very quaint and a great place to enjoy lunch!

We enjoyed a family meal here recently upon receiving a recommendation from our accommodation host and we weren't disappointed. The restaurant was really busy - even though we couldn't get a table before 9pm - which is always a good sign! The ambience is wonderful and the decor oozes class. Our food was great and the bill was more reasonable... More

My husband and I were staying at the doubletree on burlington so we choose this restaurant for pur last night due to it being a 5 minute walk away. Well, best for last! The restaurant is adorable, above M' O'Briens pub, we got a delicious bottle of wine that our server recommended and then we split the crispy goat cheese,... More

Whilst staying in the doubletree just up the road, my boyfriend and I decided to try this place out. Unsure of what to expect we were pleasantly surprised. The menu was nothing like we expected! I had the seafood linguine which was to die for! The staff were very nice and friendly. They checked we were OK every now and... More

This restaurant, which is above M O'Brien's pub on Upper Leeson Street, is a quick 5 minute walk from the DoubleTree Hotel - Burlington Road. The staff were very friendly and the food was great! After dinner, we went downstairs to the pub and sat outside and enjoyed the lovely weather and an alcoholic beverage! I highly recommend both the... More

One of the best ribeye steaks I've ever had, just the thing with a pint of Guinness. Good service and wonderful food what more could you ask for

Had the early bird menu on Saturday evening. Fish of the day was delicious as was the goat cheese starter and the peanut butter brownie sundae to finish. I enjoyed the recommended Irish gin bowl cocktail with grapefruit bitters and the soda bread was the best we'd had the whole weekend. Lovely elegant setting yet relaxed dining experience.

Excellent food and delightful experience. Had a good bottle of wine suggested by staff to go with my fish and my husband's steak. Had such a good meal, we returned several nights later for an encore. Highly recommended

A fine traditional English pub in Dublin. Delicious foods prepared in the traditional manner. The service on this night was a little slow it took over an hour to get our food. However the staff was very friendly and helpful. There were 6 in our groups and we all enjoyed our experience very much and we would highly recommend

I was visiting Dublin on business last month with some colleagues and we made the wise decision to eat here one night - the result was a delicious meal and all-round lovely evening. I had the seafood pasta dish for a main and the pecan pie for dessert and I can honestly say it's the best meal I've had in... More
