Amazing food - eggs eggs eggs 😍 I went for the eggs Benedict (swapped the ham for mushrooms) and my mom got the crab cakes. Delish and filling. The bellinis were lovely too.

Nice casual restaurant with an exciting menu. We started with the whitefish tacos and crab dumplings. The dumplings were nice and light with a punchy, flavourful broth. Not many grill restaurants in Dublin could pull off starters inspired by Mexican and Asian cuisines but both dishes were executed very well. The mains were outstanding, the pork was tender, juicy and... More

Heard a lot about here. Was excited to visit. It did not disappoint. Great Sunday brunch with lovely waiters serving with nothing a problem. Loved it. €30 per bot house wine? Really standard stuff??? Steep. Diet Coke next time!

I won a Facebook comp for Ribs and Rump for 2, however I had a prior engagement so sent herself and her Mum (Ball & Chain and The In-law...) So I'm merely reporting now-however they said the staff and food were great! 3 Types of Ribs and lovely Steak. A nice selection of beers/wine to go with it. Lovely sides.... More

Great menu, delicious meals, be it for brunch or dinner. I've been for dinner with a large group, and the staff were fab. Beautiful cocktails too! I was here also with a large group for a birthday brunch and the food and staff were superb. The restaurant is located close to lots of nice bars and is extremely central- 5... More

Good food with friendly service. Particularly notable given I was a 'walk in' just as the kitchen was closing. The food was freshly made and delicious, the house white wine very nice. Atmosphere is convivial and relaxed. Nice place for a date (of which there were several happening around me).

I ate here with some friends on a Friday evening in March 2017. We were on the Early Bird menu, which is excellent value, as evidenced by the restaurant filling up from 5 PM sitting. Good choice in early bird and excellent value at €21 or so. Good staff and service. No complaints at all and look forward to coming... More

We met a group of friends here for brunch on Sunday. We'd heard good things and were really looking forward to what we thought was going to be a varied and interesting brunch menu. It was pretty limited and had the usual standard fare consisting mostly of variants on eggs Benedict. I had the Norwegian version with smoked salmon and... More

One of the most consistent restaurants in Dublin, it never disappoints. We had crab wonton soup and duck ham pizzette to start followed by a steak and monkfish and it was all exceptional. We followed it with cheese boards which were a little light on cheese and heavy on crackers but that would be our only niggle with the meal.... More

We visited this restaurant on a Sunday evening, and it was still quite busy. Luckily we had booked ahead, and I'd recommend that you book in advance. They advertise a sharing meat platter for main course but I went for whitefish taco starter and main course, with the Monkfish main course, both of which were delicious. For dessert I had... More
