“Good as advertised, great family dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

Thought this restaurant on top of M. O'Brien's bar was perfect for our family of five. Food was excellent. 3 of us enjoyed the price fixe 3 course menu. We were able to be our normal family-selves - that is, loud and goofy. No problem. Food was good - I particularly enjoyed my squash, coconut, chili soup. Also, my hake. Son and wife had an excellent linquini with mussels and prawns and two other sons had a steak they liked. Cheese board good, too. Overall, highly recommended.

“Poor service, average food, warm wine”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

We were early so there was plenty of time. I wanted one side dish that was on the menu but not on my meal choice, and this seemed to be really too much for the 'chef'. The menu was a bit misleading, and the red wine was served at 'room temperature' which at the time was about 27 degrees C.

“Super food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

Friend had eaten here last week and said it was fab. My wife and I were not disappointed. Had an early bird meal here which was excellent quality and very tasty. Staff were very attentive and friendly throughout but not pushy. One of the most pleasant meals we have ever had in Dublin and we will definitely be back this year.

“Fantastic food, we had to go back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013

We went for our anniversary dinner based off a recommendation from our hotel and it absolutely did not disappoint. Everything from the Dingle Bay Prawns to the Superfood Salad to the filet was delicious. We decided to return the following the night to try out as much of the menu as we could, and honestly would have continued until we hit everything. Service was great with the entire staff exhibiting true Irish hospitality and the price was right on. Would go back to Dublin just to eat here again.
