“Best meal of our trip”
Reviewed January 24, 2013 via mobile

Came here on Sunday afternoon so we picked off the early bird menu, which was varied and had some good choices.

We were both enjoyed our choices the food was tastey, well cooked and well presented. The portions were large, i struggled to finish it. The baileys cheesecake was lovely, a real treat to finish off the meal.

The restaurant is very querky inside and at busier times I can imagine a great atmosphere.

The service was great everyone was very friendly and helpful.

Would definitely recommend to others.

“Good craic!!!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

We found this restaurant on trip adviser as it was so highly rated! We booked a table for last sat night on our wknd to Dublin as we heard it could get busy!
They couldn't seat us until 15 mins after our time so we were given complimentary drinks each.
We chose a three course meal from the menu and sampled a great range of genuinely gorgeous Irish food! Our first time in a proper Irish restaurant and we want to go back for more now! The food was splendid, the atmosphere buzzing and the waiters were beyond helpful and welcoming!

Sorry to hear you had to wait for your table, Saturday nights can get very busy in the Boxty House and sometimes people like to stay a little longer than usual.
Our ethos is 'Bia, Caint, Ceol agus Craic' which translates into ' Food, Talk, Music and Craic' and it sounds like that's exactly the type of night you had. We are delighted that we were able to provide you with an enjoyable experience for your first time sampling traditional Irish dining.
Hopefully we will see you back with us soon!

“Amazing!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

We only went to this restaurant once but friends of ours had to visit again. It was the most amazing food we had in Dublin. The Boxty Pancakes should be at the top of your list, there is a lot to choose from and it's all very "authentic". The portions are very large that we all tried a bit of each others, no disappointment at all!
