“Great food, very good prices , good location and excellent staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

We ate here before watching the football at the Aviva Stadium and it proved to be a very good choice. We first had a couple of beers downstairs in the bar and then enjoyed a three course meal. Everything we chose was very well cooked, well presented and good value for money. The guys at the restaurant were very polite and friendly. All in all a very good place to eat.

“Great hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

We found our way to this restaurant while visitng Dublin for the week. It is a bit off the beaten path but well worth finding. We found our way up the stairs and was pleasantly surprised by the warm, upscale, cozy environment and very attentive waiters. The food was delicious and the price a great value for all we ordered (fresh fish of the day). We wanted to try a variety of restaurants as we were only there for a week but kept thinking we should just go back to The Sussex again as it was such a great experience.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

Best kept secret in Dublin. The food was amazing. Fresh - farm to table. The atmosphere is warm and cozy - staff was great and the view of the kitchen always makes the dinner experience that much better!

“Great retaurant in a great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

I have been to this restaurant a couple of times, the first to watch a lunchtime match which was great. They had large screens to show the game, a lunch time special of a burger and craft beer and really helpful staff. The food was great and they were extremely accommodating; we were a group of ten and they had no problems re-arranging the tables for us The location couldn't have been better with the pub below ideal for a few afternoon pints. On the foot of this visit I brought my girlfriend for a quite meal and we couldn't have been happier. She had the prawns to start while I had the smokies, both were extremely fresh and tasty. For mains she had the hake and I had a steak. Again, both were cooked to perfection. We had a bottle of the house red and there was no problems getting pints from downstairs if wanted. Again the staff were great, we weren't rushed and were made to feel incredibly welcome. Couldn't recommend it highly enough.
