My mum and I went in here to have a quick lunch and it really was quick. We ordered a burger and fish and chips, within 5 minutes our food was on the table already shattering illusions that it had been freshly cooked. Fries were frozen and burger was barely warm. When we complained the waiter took our drinks off... More

As a couple, we've been here many times and the food doesn't disappoint...the favorite is without doubt the lamb shanks, a joy, the meat just falls of the bone, sitting on a bed of mash, with the "half and half" - a combination of onion and mushroom with sweet potato fries can only be described as "a party for the...

Harbourmaster is a good spot for lunch with a good atmosphere. Plenty of seating area and good for large groups, although I would advise booking for groups. Good choice of menu with something to suit everyone. Club sandwich (no fries) a tasty choice although slightly overpriced given it was only a sandwich. Would recommend here for a comfort food lunch!

I had the Super Salad with Chicken. Delicious! My Ma had the Chicken Curry...she loved it. My Da had the 6 oz. Steak sandwich medium rare, and they cooked it perfectly. Our server Luane was absolutely fantastic. Wine was good. When we were leaving it had started pouring rain and I asked for a poncho and they gave me the... More

Went here for lunch with 2 work colleagues. The lunch menu was on offer at the time, 2 of us ordered the Harbourmaster beef burger and frankly, it's pure arrogance to think they can serve food like that. I'm aware it's only a lunch menu but to serve a tasteless, frozen, dry burger on a stale bun is shoddy. tasted... More

Had a filet steak and sweet potato fries. Both very good. Server was keeping up with a very busy dining room by herself and service did not suffer. She was a little dynamo! I would eat here again.

If you're looking for a nice pint of the black stuff, avoid here. Was at a work do and had 3 pints, one as bad as the next. How are pubs in Dublin of all places getting away with such poor quality

This is a lovely place located in the IFSC area. I was here last year in the winter & enjoyed how cozy it was. The summer brings a different feel to the place which is also enjoyable. The service was friendly and attentive even though it was very busy. The food and wine was delicious and fairly priced. I have... More
