“Great find...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013 via mobile

This is a real little gem. It's almost cafe like in style so if you are looking for fancy dining atmosphere and linen tablecloths look elsewhere! It has a short but extremely good menu. Beautifully presented food and very well cooked. You can bring your own wine so can splash out and have a great bottle instead of paying twice that for a bottle of house wine. The lamb shanks in treacly sauce are highly recommended. As is the Guinness in the lovely pub just next door !

“Delighted we found this place !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

Super little place in Dublin. Food excellent and beautifully presented. You can bring your own wine and no corkage ... Splurge on a good bottle and save on what you would spend on crap house wine. My wife found it and we will definitely be back. Try it and you will love it.

“get down to the vintage kitchen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

omg! this is one if not the best meals we've ever had. The food is amazing we had the hake starter and the mushroom and cheese tartlet and for mains the salmon and lamb shank - they were all absolutly gorgeous and I would definately go back there. The staff are so friendly and pleasant
you can bring your own wine which means you can have a lovely bottle of wine for what you would pay for a mediocre house wine. there is a great buzz about the place and you can bring a vinyl record and they will play it for you - what more could you want?

“Great food, value and athmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

I have been to this restaurant quite a few times now, and each time has been a great experience.
The food is amazing, tasty and consistant. As is the service and athmosphere....The byow policy is a great idea, as is the byo vinyl, it makes for a fun night!! The prices are unbeatable for the quality and standard all round being offered. Definitely, I am becoming a regular.

“Little gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

I had heard about this cafe from a few people, rave reviews so I was looking forward to trying it. I went for lunch with a few friends and we were not disappointed the food was the best I have had for some time. The key to their food is simple good but truly tasty food that leaves you wondering what spices and herbs were used. The service was great, a lovely waiter who seemed able to carry the place on his own. We actually forgot to bring our wine, but actually the food more than made up for that unfortunate error. I will definitely go back to try their evening menu.
