I think the draw to this restaurant is how it is decorated. From outside it looks appealing. The food was nothing special and expensived compared to other restaurants we tried in Dublin. This one was definately at the bottom of the list.

When i go to a place full of references of Rock and Roll i don't expect to listen One Direction and Katy Perry. The food was ok but the music was terrible.
