Confusion over the terms and conditions so rather than trying to figure out a solution your rude staff asked the bride and groom to leave. Classy move guys, get some customer service training.

Hi, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. There must be some confusion over what you perceive to have happened. There was a booking made for the set menu for 20 people. The majority of the guests arrived over an hour late and then denied any knowledge of the set menu requirement even though the manager on... More

Lovely spot for lunch/dinner with friends. Drinks and tapas are amazing & delicious, though I wouldn't agree that this is an appropriate place for kids as it can be quite crowded and noisy! Still a nice spot and will definitely visit again!

Recently met up with a friend before a grouping meeting here and thoroughly enjoyed the early bird menu option for €15 which you get two small plates and a small glass of wine or beer. We shared four small plates between the two of us and we're stuffed. Delicious food - had nachos, chorizo/chicken skewers, stuffed peppers and meatballs.

I was a bit sniffy about eating in Market Bar. But the fresh, delicious calamari and fish skewers and the smiling and helpful service soon turned my opinion around. The staff were unfailingly friendly, the cava was reasonably priced and it was lovely to see family groups dining there on a Saturday afternoon. Just be aware the tables a very... More
