“Lovely spot”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Lovely spot very small but nice the food could have been a small bit better but dont get me wrong it was nice.
The let down is two members of the floor staff

“amazing food, amazing deserts, funny decor”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

We really loved this place! The service was great, the food outstanding and the decor is interesting. After having eaten at many pubs in Irland, it was nice to eat in a different kind of restaurant. There are some funny things to look at but the decor is not overwhelming or too weird.
The highlight of our evening was the desert. After having asked for the desert menu, the waiter brought us four large jars filled with the most delicious looking deserts! We chose a strawberry-cream-meringue-marshmallow jar which tasted amazing!!
Have dinner here, you will love it!

“Great!”
Reviewed August 30, 2013 via mobile

We just walked in without a reservation and got a table immediately, even though the restaurant was quite full.
Service was very good, we had a nice steak and the surf+turf and it was one of the best meals we've had in a long time!
The dessert was very good, too - all in all a wonderful evening.

“It gets better and better.”
Reviewed August 30, 2013 via mobile

I have been in the Smoke House a couple of times before and it was good but not great, although this last time was just great. The decor has changed and it is more confortable and open, more relaxing. The food was very, very good. We shared the gambas dish for starter and it was tasty, juicy fresh langostines but only 4 in the dish felt a bit overpriced for 12 euro, my only complaint. The mains were amazing. Mint lamb burger, big, well cooked, full of flavour and the taggliatele with mussels and calamares. Pasta was well cooked, even though it came cut in small pieces like if it was gonna be for a child, but fresh mussels, a nice and spice tomato sauce and the best calamares i have had in a long time made that dish a winner. The service was great by the three waitresses but specially Maria who was so charming and helpful. So 75 euro for starter, two mains, one dessert and bottle of wine! Well done lads, i will be back soon

“Great food, service and surroundings!”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

First thing to say that if you are a tourist to Ireland and want a traditional 'mammy's kitchen' experience then this is not for you! We went here based on a rough guide review, really glad we did as the place has a trendy and cosy atmosphere with great music whilst you eat. The staff were excellent, nice and friendly without it feeling forced and offering us recommendations on food and then different drinks based on what we had ordered. The food itself was brilliant and well priced, surf and turf with a steak that the knife melted through and fresh scallops cooked perfectly. Can't recommend this place enough and we will be making another visit when we are over again.
