This place has a great atmosphere..Very romantic. Small, with reachly decorated red walls. The service is ok and food is good. Regular size portions and good selection of wines. 1 minute walking from Grafton Street, i would recommend it to everyone who is looking for a romantic, hidden place to spend the evening.

No beer. Lots of wine. Great steak! Don't hesitate to go downstairs if you want to escape from the typical "irish pub" go for the 3 course menu. Even if you are not that hungry!

Lovely pre theater dinner. Didn't book. Great selection on the menu. Goats cheese salad and tomatoes and pepper soup to start. But it was the mains which stole the show! Ravioli with spinach and mushrooms...yum..yum...yum. Chicken with a calavdos and tarragon sauce...yummy. Clean plates all round. Stuffed...wish I had room for the Apple and pear tart tatin. Next time 😀
