“Lovely food and prompt service”
Reviewed November 27, 2013 via mobile

Called in on a recent trip to Dublin to try their early bird menu. Staff were friendly enough and food was served promptly. We started with mussels, and the sauce was delicious...the dish was slightly spoilt by a few of the mussels containing something crunchy...I assume this could of been sand but couldn't be sure :/. Despite this minor set back the trout and chicken with risotto dishes were delicious and couldn't be faulted. Atmosphere could be improved by some tables not being so tightly packed together but we would return :)

“There's better options out there....”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

We dined here last Saturday night having seen a very favourable review in a weekend supplement magazine... As we were going to The National Concert Hall we booked the table for 6 pm....booking over the phone was a very pleasant experience, chirpy voice and an obvious buzz in the background, so my expectations were high... We arrived at 6 pm to a quiet restaurant and rather (I felt) a tense atmosphere with the dark haired co owner(I think) constantly present in the background as if she would rather be somewhere else,(and three waitresses standing around) there was one other table of diners...I ordered from the early bird menu, great value 20e for 2 courses, 25e for 3 it was lovely and excellent value,(and a good wine list with 1/2 bottles available) by 6.45pm the restaurant was filling up with customers being turned away so it certainly seems a popular eaterie, but I wasn't feeling that I would rush back here... my husband ordered from the a la carte menu...steak.....and it was fatty and REALLY dissapointing (and he loves his steak) the chips were homemade and tasty,but not a good dish... it wasn't at all busy and I feel the chef had plenty of time to get a steak right...we didn't hang around for coffee......I would recommend this place for value(early bird..the a la carte is pricey enough) and location(Its just off top of Grafton St towards Dawson St) but as an early bird option not so much, there is equally/better value around this part of town(with a bit of research!)and as it is seldom we do get to dine a deux I would not return for a romantic evening but maybe as a casual one after a days shopping.....

“Lovely Spot”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

Found this quaint restaurant by a recommendation from our hotel. Cozy and small and we enjoyed our meal very much. Food was excellent and it was nice takinga break from the noisy outside for a while. Great specials! We had fish and pasta and loved every bite!

“Love this place!”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

We happen to know Amanda, one of the co-owners of this place, and went in for a meal last week. The food was tremendous and we were treated like royalty. I have only the highest praise for Amanda and for her establishment. Five stars!
