We visited The Boxty House for a rehearsal dinner. There were about 35 people in attendance. The service was great! The staff was quick, efficient and very friendly. There were a few different dishes and they were all delicious.

We last went there in 2001. On walking around Temple Bar we were suprised to see the Boxty restaurant again and thought we had to go again. We were not disappointed.

The service was great and our waitress, Jules was very friendly. However, I was a little disappointed,as the reviews were very good, but I found the food rather average. It was nice but I wouldn't rush back.

Fun atmosphere and good food. Our waitress (Jules) was terrific - very personable and responsive. It was a great spot for an early family dinner.
