We enjoyed it so much we went on two consecutive nights. It is very reasonably priced for Dublin, and the food is very good. There is a very good range of beers as well, again not too high priced for Dublin. Service was good, and the music and dancing lovely.

First time we've visited this place. Lovely atmosphere, delicious food, attentive staff and great live music! The early bird menu was amazing, 3 course meal for 25 euros, it was well presented and big portions too. We've tried the cocktails too, the favourite one was the chocolate and orange one with whiskey! Highly recommend it, definitely will be returning!

What a beautiful place to have dinner. We sat upstairs in this renovated church. It has retained lots of its original features so made for interesting views whilst eating. Food was delicious & staff were very friendly

Due to a change in plans we found this place last minute for dinner, wow, what a great find.... It is a hidden gem of a place.
