We knew nothing about this restaurant, which is across the street from the famous "Temple Bar." It was outstanding and the service could be described the same way. All of us had delicious meals and felt the price was very reasonable.

Whilst visiting Temple Bar on a rainy evening we made a hasty decision and chose to eat at the Shack...to be truthful, we were only in Dublin for the weekend and I wish I'd checked out Trip Advisor before we went away as I probably would have chosen to eat elsewhere. The restaurant itself looked quite appealing from the outside but food was disappointing. Two meals had to be returned to the kitchen to be reheated as they weren't hot when served. Service itself average.

we where in temple bar and this place was still open so we thought we'd take a look. Food was OK but not fantastic (not bad either). They did have a good selection but portions seemed small. Atmosphere was OK and the bill didn't break the bank

Got a table for one and was served by a pleasent waiter. I ordered crab cakes for starter, lamb for the main and a berry pie for desert. Service was quite quick and the starter and desert were good. I felt the lamb was below average and I was dissapointed as I enjoy lamb. The bill for the above with one glass of red wine was 37.55 euro which I taught was very high for a pretty simple 3 course meal. Even in temple bar you can find much better value.
