This cute restaurant in centre of Temple Bar offers great Irish food and beverages. Staff are super friendly and they are one of only restaurants in area that will serve you dinner after 10 pm on a busy night!

A local recommended Boxty to us. So glad we went. The main floor felt hot to us so the hostess suggested the downstairs room. Much nicer, quaint, and cool. The fish and chips were great. This was also one of the few restaurants we went...More

Very nice traditionally Irish menu at reasonable prices. Very busy in the evenings, so you might have to wait a while to get a table. Try the Irish stew -- it's wonderful.

It is a small restaurant with very good food and a excellent service. The different alternatives are all good and they have a fix menu with choices that you can select.

Stopped by for a late lunch. Irish cousin with a twist, very nice! Cured ham with dumplings is a good choice, and the (pancake?) fries are a speciality!

Hello Danielle, we usually recommend reservations for large groups, but if it is just two people it is easier to get a table at lunch time.
