“good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2014

Good food, reasonable size portions. Friendly and efficient staff even though it is a very busy restaurant. Booking is recommended. Prices are not cheap but for a branded chain on temple bar what do you expect.

“Expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

Whilst the burgers are tasty, the prices are expensive probably due to its location in temple bar. 2 burgers a beer plus a 2% service charge resulted in a 50.77 euro bill.... Eat here if you want a treat !

“Hard neck”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014

In a nut shell
very ordinary food at extra ordinary prices - 49e for burger,chips & coke and chicken fajita with salad (no chips) & coke - poor value all round - Temple bar is what it is; a tourist trap! The HRC would do better concentrating on improving the cooking than pushing the merchandise but then why care if the majority of your punters are kids or visitors

“Top Notch Staff - Karl !!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2014

Where do I begin!!
I work in the hospitality industry as sales executive for a hotel group and it is honestly a breath of fresh air to be served by someone like Karl! He has customer service down to a T, not only is his knowledge of all things Hard Rock on point, but his ability to engage and instantly connect is just so rare these days. Witt, humour and attention was equal on all his tables, yet he made us feel like we were his priority!! I went to your restaurant with a colleague for one drink and stayed for a meal and more because of his recommendations. My goal is to have Karl working in my restaurant and cocktail bar - To management you have a golden ticket with this man!!
