We had a family meal here and it was really good value. The service was excellent and the portions were really generous.

We had bought a "dealrush" voucher for 19 euros. This gives you two mains and sides for two people and tea and coffee. This is valued at around 50 euros. We spend a lot of time in Dublin and regularly buy these vouchers for various restaurants and if we like them we return. I think it is unlikely that we... More

Popped in here for drinks and dinner, and even mid-week, it was pretty busy. The Harbourmaster has a good atmosphere, and the food was really good.

A total disaster of a night. I ordered Pappardelle Pasta with Tiger Prawns... got pasta with chicken and a tomato cream sauce. My wife ordered a cheese burger and after finding two pieces of bone gave up on the dish. The manager came and offered substitute dishes. Wife got chicken with pasta in a mushroom sauce. The chicken was too... More

I have reviewed this restaurant before & loved it. Returned tonight with my son visiting from the US. Warm & cosy inside, service very good & friendly. Food was lukewarm, I had the Wicklow Lamb, it was void of all flavour. The mash were instant or old..lamb was fatty & as I said tasteless. Side order of vegetables were good.... More

Met with our friends from The States and some of our family. I ordered the vegetable soup - fish chowder was delivered. I then ordered a 1/2 pint of guineas and a full pint was delivered. Everyone else enjoyed there food though so no don't want the waitresses misgivings to overshadow the meal.

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
