RESTAURANT'S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Visited for lunch on Saturday. First time ever we beat the crowds. Great food, guirky surroundings and would suit a group of tourists drinking and eating for the afternoon or just as suitable for a coffee and sandwich while the wife shops Henry streeet dry. If you haven't been give it a try you won't regret it.

We have organised a hen night here, at The Church. They have good deals, so we got drinks and finger food for a good price. I would recommend it for a night out - make a reservation and go to the club downstairs to have some fun

Friendly atmosphere, fabolous food, The interior is lovely, nice place to either have time to yourslef or with friends and family. Staff very good and make sure you get served what you need. Quiet exspensive though. Close to henry Street and close to all the shops. Downfall no breakfast which would bring in more cutomers.

Beautiful setting. Run of the mill menu. Ordered the special which was a thai curry, nothing special about it. The bill came, was quite surprised at the price of drinks. 6.30 for a pint of stella, 6 for a Guinness. Come on lads. If you're going to be charging that during the day for a Guinness, at least have a... More
