Pretty average restaurant, menu has no standout dishes. Wine, beer list is also average with slightly higher prices. Location is ideal for bord gais theatre or 3 arena.

Great food, great location, and Rita the Great (she's the owner I think). Nice selection of wines and beers too. Lunchtime service was nice and quick which helped.

Genuine Guinness was good. Nice music. However, place was not crowded. Liked the Chiken burger. Nice Location. If you seat outside, you can enjoy the area's ambience.
