“Good food but no music”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

We were here in Jun 2013 with a big company. Really unusual design (lots of shoes on the wall :). It was Wednesday but it was full. Good food (spicy) but no music :)

“Decent Tapas, Good Range of Beer”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

Quite a nice little place, but like so much in Dublin, over-priced.
Does have very good selection of expensive beers and food very tasty, if expensive for what you get.

“Great spot for lunch & Kid friendly too”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

The Market bar is a great value spot for lunch, there is a huge amount of space inside, so if you are with your kids there is plenty of room for a stroller & they also have plenty of fun games for kids to play with on the tables (which is a rarity in Dublin!)

“Great Tapas, fab atmosphere and lovely staff!”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

The interior is stunning, well worth a visit for tapas and wine, or just for a few drinks at the bar. great buzz about the place and friendly staff. More than holds its own in a busy area in Dublin.

“Still my favourite, but...”
Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

I have eaten here many times and I love it- especially the nachos, patatas bravas and the meatballs. The sangria is fab too but a little on the expensive side( there is so much fruit, you only get 4 small glasses from 1L). However, on my most recent visit the service was lacking, we waited 20 mins for our drinks order and had to ask 3 different staff members. My friend ordered banoffi for dessert. It was poor and the cream tasted of onions! Overall, I would return but next time I'll get my own drink from the bar!
