Reviewed September 2, 2013

This restaurant was bustling at 9pm on a Bank holiday w/end. The staff were very friendly and happy to accommodate our needs. Buzy and good vibe.

We ate there for a late brunch. The staff was quick and friendly. The food had good portions, and was very affordable compared to many places around there.

“Excellent Lunch”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

Bit off the beaten track in terms of the city center but is well worth the effort to get to, even at that its only a 10 minute stroll from St Stephen's Green.

Modern trendy cool vibe and caters for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Given its location it was still busy even at lunch time on a Bank Holiday Monday. Opted for the steak sandwich with home fries, cooked to perfection and very tasty.

Good service and very reasonable price, so would highly recommend.

“Great place for a relaxed dinner”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

OK so it's 100 metres from the Grand Canal but once you get over that bit of Blarney this is a fresh open and gregarious place with friendly efficient staff, a decent wine list and an upscale casual menu.

I had excellent Hake on a bed of really well cooked celery (not easy) and a fine effort at a mezze starter. The other guys had chicken Caesar, burger, chiekc wings...youm now the score.
