We ate here our last night in Dublin and could have eaten here more than once had we tried it before. Food was unpretentious and tasty. Well presented with good selection. Make sure you try the Guinness Chocolate Mousse for dessert, it even comes in a half-pint glass!

Where to begin. Beautiful ambiance, excellent service/treatment, sunny relaxing atmosphere. A group of 4 had a late lunch here the end of May. It happened to be National fish 'n chips day so that's what I ordered. Absolutely delicious and I'm not a big "fish" person. Presentation was delightful and the food choices were excellent. We were all very pleased. A nice place to refresh and relax. Prices very reasonable as well.

We enjoyed our breakfast! They have a limited menu, but it offered a good variety of breakfasts. The scrambled eggs with salmon was delicious!

Food, service and ambience was tremendous. Every detail was looked after, including the staff ensuring we had the perfect picture taken. Would have expected to pay much more for this type of experience.....even the bill at the end was a pleasant surprise. The salmon was exquisite and don't forego the Guinness mousse as dessert...served in a half pint Guinness glass!

We had this bistro as part of our package with Harding Hotel, but also had dinner there 2 nights and found it very good. Good selection, very fresh foods particularly the fish.
