I visited here with friends a couple of weeks ago. Unfortunately, there was no hand sanitiser in the doorway as we arrived, we used some of our own. Our waitress had little English, which made ordering our meal difficult. Only three meals arrived when 4...were ordered. The restaurant was quiet when we arrived but got very busy as we ate our meal. We had people queueing on one side of us to come into the restaurant. on the other side the tables filled up and staff were moving up and down the aisle. We were very uncomfortable with the situation, as we felt the social distancing was not adequate. We asked for another table away from this hustle and bustle. We were moved to a much quieter area of the restaurant and continued with our meal. The food was delicious. We would have had a much more comfortable evening if management had sorted out their social distancing and sanitising issues properlyMore

Decided to go here with the family before the lock down. I ordered the burger. After a few bites I placed my burger on my plate with the top of the burger lying on the plate allowing me me to see the mouldy base that...they used. Absolutely disgusting. We went here shortly after it opened originally and it was terrible. Wish we never gave it a 2nd chance. We certainly won't be giving it the third time lucky. Never againMore

We arrived in Dublin on Thursday staying in the Maldron Hotel across the road. We decided that we would try here as we read the reviews and its looked good. We arrived at 10.30, we walked in had our mask on us and all. I...politely asked if we could get a table for 3 to be grunted at did you not book? We politely responded no we didnt realise we needed to book. We signed in gave our details for contract tracing. We were shown to the table. A young girl came to take our order and I would have to say she has absoulety no interest in been there that day, no smile, no manners at all. Everything seemed to a big deal. At this stage we had our mask off us as we were at the table. We smiled at any of the servers that came to us said thank you but all we got were grunts and resting faces!! Does no one in this establishment smile?? I for one work in the industry and smile doesnt cost anyone anything and having manners doesnt either. There is nothing worst than going to an establishment where the staff is rude it turns people away from the establishment. We will never be here again and we come to Dublin alot of the time.More

I had dinner here last night on Saturday night. Lots of families eating here. Food was decent, I had monkfish. Fish was reasonably fresh, though the seafood accompaniment I thought might be frozen(I didn't ask). However it was in a fresh tomato&chilli sauce&tasted great. Chips...were homemade proper chips. The wine selection was OK, the standard Irish choices. Himself had the burger, which he thought was tasty if a little overdone. Chicken wings were delicious- tangy perfect buffalo sauce, nice crispy chicken wings (not those flabby ones which are often barely cooked). They were really really good. Service was decent, friendly, not intrusive. A little slow in bringing our wine orders. Overall well worth a visit if you are in the area. I would recommend the restaurant updating wine choices, and including more info on the menu about the provenance of the food with a focus on local suppliers, and perhaps some more adventurous specials. We'll definitely be back.More

4 of us went for a quick bite to eat as we heard good reports about the food but sadly we were disappointed. Table service excellent but food not very hot and of poor quality. When we went to pay our bill the chap taking...our money made the comment well everyone else has no problem with our food. He definitely needs some customer service training - we will never ever step one foot inside that place again.More
