“Avoid”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Followed a board advertising lunch specials for €5 and thought we were getting a bargain but should've known you get what you pay for! 2 x fish & chips, 1 x chicken & chips and 1 x burger & chips all appeared to have been cooked in the deep fat fryer! The burger was inedible due to the grease oozing from it and the fish was like supermarket frozen pieces. The toilets are down a set of stairs with the filthiest carpet I've ever seen. Spend a few more euros and go somewhere decent, there's no bargain to be had here!

“Tourist eaterie in Temple Bar area”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

The full Irish breakfast was quite filling, but average fare. The inner door of the restaurant remained open even though it was early January. Customers did not stay long. O'Shea's was about the only restaurant open before 10am in the Temple Bar area on a Saturday morning. The waiter explained it was due to a tourist lull post-New Year's.
The service was good, but I won't return.

“Shocking! ”
Reviewed January 3, 2013 via mobile

Tried this so called restaurant for breakfast and it was a disgrace! 10 euros for a full Irish, which consisted of 1 sausage, 1 egg, 1 tiny piece of black pudding, beans and some toast. Would recommend this place be avoided at all costs. Try the quays Irish restaurant instead. Similar price but miles better quality!!

“I'd rather not eat”
Reviewed January 1, 2013 via mobile

Horrible overpriced food. Hostile staff. Creditcard machine didn't work, and then the manager accused us of not having any valid credit cards after letting him try five fulle working ones. When he found out the machine was broken he didn't appolegize. And - the glasses and cups were clearly not washed, if even rinsed.
