It should have been warning enough that the restaurant was almost empty on a busy Saturday afternoon in Dublin - since all the other pubs and restaurants were packed and it was impossible for us to find a table anywhere. However, hungry and tired of searching, we gave it a try nonetheless. Big mistake.
We ordered a portion of Bruschetta and fried Calamari as a starter - unfortunately before we witnessed other people complaining bitterly about the Bruschetta.. When it was served it became clear to us, why. It certainly is not the most challenging task to prepare a half-decent Bruschetta; even a Chef with very limited skills should be capable of getting it right - but I have to say that must have been the most boring and most tasteless food I've ever tried. The whitish tomatoes had no flavour whatsoever, there was no seasoning, the bread was not grilled but flabby, cold and soaked.
The Calamari were greasy and tasted horrible - we didn't finish any of it. We refrained from ordering any main dishes and left.
The atmosphere was cold and uninviting, we didn't feel comfortable at all.
