The food is both very good as well as attractively served. It is obvious they take great care in the preparation and presentation of their food. The waiter could not have been more attentive. I had the stew, my wife the fish and chips and another of our party had a vegetarian dish, all excellent! If you arrive before 1900 you get a reduced price on the combination of a main dish and the appetitizer.

It was the only place that we repeated for dinner. The service was very good, and the food was fantastic, specially a piece of bread with poached onion and cheese on top, that was one of the best dishes I have ever tried. Totally recommended.

We ate at this restaurant twice while in Dublin. The service was fantastic and the food delicious. The first visit I had a hamburger which was very tasty and husband and daughter had the fish and chips. Both said it was the best fish they had during our entire two weeks in Ireland. Wait staff is very friendly and they have free wifi too which was nice.

I had the best bruschetta at the Copper Alley Bistro. I'm not a huge fan of tomatoes, but these were very good. We found the menus of the restaurants in Dublin to be fairly limited, but the Copper Alley Bistro had a few things on their menu that we didn't see anywhere else. We sat a small elevated table that had a good view of the streets on either side. The Guinness was also good here (of course). The bill was appropriate for a bistro in a tourist-y area - around 26 Euro for two of us for lunch.
