I come here for lunch or dinner at least once on every trip back to Dublin. I always have the same order and it never disappoints. Chili Squid to start.

Love this restaurant. Great food and great atmosphere. Portion sizes were quite generous. Myself and two others had three different dishes - they were all excellent. Food was served quickly. I will definitely be visiting again

We stopped here after looking for something in the area. The staff were grand, and the food was tasty and plentiful. We opted for the 2 course meal.

Ate with family. Given a jug of table tap water but not offered any other drinks - waitress took our food order and then disappeared before we could ask about drinks! Food was quite slow to arrive but tasty when it did. Decent servings too, just poor on the service side.
