Tonic is probably the only bar in Blackrock where you can dance into the early hours these days. Although other bars do have a late licence this is most likely the only spot where you will still find bodies bopping after midnight at the weekend....More

Tonic has great cocktails and food combined with a good atmosphere it is the perfect place to meet with friends or colleagues. Strawberry Daiquiri is divine.

Brought the better half to tonic today for some lunch. Waitress seemed disinterested. Our order took nearly over 30 mins.... We both had sandwiches. It took ten minutes for the bill to come Food and atmosphere were average. Won't rush back.

My partner and I stopped off here before we went to see a show. Menu is cheap and the food was tasty. Having lived in Spain it reminded me of any local "venta" I've been to. Looking forward to my return visit
