Good ambiance, with lowlight at night. The food was good and the drinks were tasty. It's right along the canal and convenient if you're staying in a hotel around that area. Everything we had was good, but a bit oily as you'd expect bar food to be, but definitely good.

Three of us had our lunch here one Saturday in February and it was lovely. Very attentive staff and a nice location. We visited again in the evening and had cocktails and these were lovely as well.

We were there for a few drinks and food. The selection of drinks is quite nice and the staff available. However the food was cantine quality. I had the chicken burger, which I thought was a safe bet but the quality wasn't there. Too much mayo, non-toasted bun and the side of chips was oily and not properly cooked. The... More

We went here after seeing “BIG” at the Bord Gais Theatre. We decided to try it out as it was one of the local eateries that we hadn’t been to on our previous visits to the theatre. It has a nice ambience and is full of neon signs and other paraphanalia. The menu is interesting and varied and the staff... More

Firstly, I have to say the food in this establishment is OK, on the good side of OK but I would not be visiting this place ever again unless it is summer time. If you are seated inside and are near the doors, god love you as you might be suffering the following day. The staff and other customer are... More
