Very unusual theme, clearly based on name: old doors as tables, reused bottles for table water. But don't let that fool you: pizzas served are of the highest quality, as are the various sides, puddings and starters. Great service, and a packed venue. Well worth a visit.

The decor is kind of hipster, old doors covered in sheet glass for tables, low-level lighting coming from soft yellow filament bulbs in bare wire shades. Pizzas are really unusual and will have flavour combinations you've probably never tried before- the base is awesome, they age the dough for a couple of days to allow the yeast to prove properly and the result is fantastic! Pizzas are oblong, served on a slab of wood, sliced in front of you. Pizza is big enough for two if you get a starter as well. Try the Eight Degrees range of irish brewed beers, I had the pilsner and it was lovely. I had olives to start and the bay leaf & chilli marinade was lovely, but I was a bit disappointed that they were jar olives... I'm crazy about fresh olives and expected they'd have them because the restaurant is so close to Temple Bar which sells excellent fresh olives every weekend at the market and other suppliers like Fallon & Byrne are nearby. Waitress was relaxed and friendly. Music wasn't too loud when I was there which was nice.
I went on my own but recommend this place for friends sharing lunch or before going out. Go as a group, order lots of different pizza flavours, and swap & share!

Cool pizza joint with about 10 tables. Enjoyed the service before a concert in the Olympia a few doors away. Amazing Hummus starter dish. Great tasty portion on top of a pizza type base beautifully flavoured with herbs, and big enough for two. The Pizzas are ok with unusual toppings. Also some meatball dishes available. Juicy carefree of wine at great value. Will be back for Hummus as my main course

Taste Taste Taste and Service Service Service - oh...and value for money.
This was a surprise. Great interior vibe and imaginative pizza offering and presentation. The waiter knew the bespoke beers on offer and was relaxed and unrushed talking to us - two adults and a 6yr old. He could not have engaged better with the kid - and the food arrived all together and was delicious and satisfying. Presentation is imaginative from the pink lemonade to the artisan beers. DJ played kewl tracks too - and that was 8pm in the evenin 0 - SATURDAY. Shared tables not a problem - but the outstanding recall is tasty food and excellent service - give it a go
