Recommended by friends who were actually waiting for us to join them, we had a bit of trouble locating the restaurant but once there the experience was truly magical. The room was lovely to look at, serene and comforting. Service was provided swiftly and unobtrusively, orders taken, questions answered. The remarkable seafood sampler ordered by two of our party was a positive groaning board of delicious morsels from local waters, including a most interesting pot of monkfish mixed with mashed potatoes! Other entrees were equally creative. Truly a relaxing and rewarding evening in Dublin we would recommend highly to discerning diners.

Dear hughbar,

That's just what we want to hear! The Seafood Platter that you had is one of our signature dishes and a speciality. I do hope we get a chance to welcome you back in the near future,

Kind regards,

The Atmosphere! The Service! The Food!

Blown away by this charming spot on St. Stephen's Green.

The atmosphere is luxurious and grand but not stuffy. Beautifully lit - and defined by pristine white walls and linens - the room itself bustles like a lively bistro. Your fellow this-is-the-place-to-be dining companions are an across the board mix of conservative business types - chic and trendy types - out-of-towner foodies - special occasionists - and romantic diners - with a celeb or two tossed in for good measure.

Service here is impeccable and friendly. And while we were attended to with great personal care, we were never overwhelmed.

The wine list was expansive and interesting - and following our server's lead - we were not disappointed.

I can't say enough complementary things about the seasonings. Every dish was jumping with flavor. My companion and I split a scallop starter. For mains we split both a rib eye and a cod - magnificent. Special props to the flavorful sauce for the steak. And for dessert a luscious chocolate fondant and a berry crumble.

A Winner!

Highly Recommended!

Using a rewarding times vouchers we were very unsure of what we would be eating. The seafood platter was delicious, could not complain about any aspect of it. Asked for more bread which was brought quickly and we were not charged for it. Deserts were very nice and finished with a very well made cocktail. Will definitely be going back again.
