The setting for this restaurant is stunning. The building has been beautifully renovated in and out. As you walk into the building through the small courtyard style entrance the restaurant has the wow factor. Great decor and ambience and the Tapas selection was well executed and very tasty. They have a good quality selection of wines too. A great place... More

This is a bustling and noisy venue but great fun. Good service and excellent menu at reasonable prices. Our only complaint was that all the dishes came very quickly together and it would have suited us better if they had been staggered a little bit.

Great spot in the city centre. We opted for the early bird -€15 for 2 tapas and a glass of wine. Initially i thought i would want more than 2 tapas but i was proven wrong! Great size portions. I would recommend the Gambas Pill Pill, patatas bravas and chicken/chorizo skewers. Staff were friendly and attentive.

Friendly and funny place, good service, diverse and tasting food. Not a small dining room but its high ceiling makes the place confortable.

Having not lived in Dublin for some time, when home I like to duck into the Market bar off George's St as the food has always been rather good and the atmosphere bouyant and relaxed. We had Polish guests who were mad to try some Irish beef. Sadly the sirloin was a little tough and grisly - but upon complaining... More

Our large group dined near by and we wanted one more drink before heading back to our hotel. Both our local guide and the cab driver gave high grades to the Market. Granted, we only had drinks here, but I have to say I was not impressed. We wanted to be seated downstairs, but were told we could not sit... More

Really good place if you are tapas lover and you are patient, the atmosphere is very nice, and normally is very crowded. I have tried several places of tapas and this one is the best value for money, big tapas for small price, perfect to share and you also have a massive bar. go and try and then let me... More
