“Simply brilliant - keep up the good work !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

This is a real find, the guys running this restaurant in the evening give great service and a real sense of enjoying what they do, it is an infectiously good atmosphere the food is very tasty and the sweet potatoe fries well worth trying, Care and attention are paid to each customer and the restaurant is clean and the live music was fun and not intrusive. We were lucky to get a table for a pre movie bite and will definitely book next time as Chef has a wide repotoire of dishes we want to try !

“Gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

Had breakfast here most mornings of a short stay in Dun Laoghaire. Staff very friendly and efficient service every time.
Food, well presented and lovely- the fresh orange juice...delicious!
Would highly recommend and not just for the selection of all day breakfasts either!

“Stylish, but more importantly tasty too”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

To begin with some very mild criticism; their spinach tartlet, although absolutely gorgeous could perhaps come with some tangy sauce by default, maybe tomato or similar. However, that is nitpicking on my behalf on what was utterly delicious food in a really cool establishment. The Brazillian waiter is a class act too and does an excellent job, he was also interested in learning a few words of Irish from me which was appreciated by both of us. Maith an fear.

“One of the DL's finest”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012 via mobile

Easily the best club sandwich you'll find. Food is great and by no means overpriced. Will most certainly be returning.

“Eggs benedict worth the trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

We travel to Dublin from Kerry on a regular basis for concerts or rugby matches and often stay with friends. Regardsless of where we stay or go, we always head here for the breakfast! The Eggs benedict is worth the trip from Kerry alone! Must try something else some time! Friends who have the Granola always comment on how fantastic it is!!

Staff are great and the place is always spotless! Can't recommend it enough!
