The waiters in this restaurant were some of the most friendly I have ever come across. The food was really really great.On a cold day/evening this restaurant is a must as it has a real open fire which makes the place so cosy.

To enter the Lord Edward is to take a step back in time, it is located in a fantastic old building that seems to be a bit of a tardis. The sound of a passing tourist horse and carriage resounded around the diningroom as if we were transported back to the 1890's...the decor strengthens the mirage.
Unfortunatel that is where the dream ends, the food in no way lived up to it's reputation. We had mussel starter and prawn and lobster thermodore respectively - we had chosen the pricier options on the back of it's reputed reputation for seafood....mistake! The food was tastless and the same sauce was used on all the dishes, which wasn't great to start!
Between the sound of the Christchurch bells, the passing carriages and the building itself it is well worth a visit .............for a coffee.

Took my other half here on the recommendation of a hotel concierge. Word was that it was the oldest seafood restaurant in the Dublin, and had some of the best fish.
Its above a pub run by a delightful old boy, and we booked in with him earlier in the day.
Food is excellent, really nice, good and fresh. Service was great - waiter was nice and friendly, full of good humor and guidance, could barely ask for more.
But for some reason...it was like going back in time. There was something really...dated about it. Its like stepping back to the 1970s with the decor and the waiters bow tie. Nothing against that, but the atmosphere suffered a bit, It just seemed a bit dead which is a shame as everything else was great. Its also a bit pricey, but then the pound is currently suffering against the Euro, so may just be me.

We took dinner at the Lord Edward on a recommendation from our taxi driver. He said it was the best seafood restaurant in Dublin. That was our first error, never ask a taxi driver for a food recommendation.

The restaurant is on the third floor, that alone might have increased our appetite but without going into exact detail of the food, it was disappointing. The staffs were a tad quirky in a nice way and the view from the bay window was excellent, but they need to look again at their food presentation and their prices.

Overpriced, mostly overcooked and desperately in need of updating in every department. Keep the charm but bring it up to a standard that might justify their prices.
