Just had probably the best meal We've had in a restaurant in a long time, the steak was cooked to perfection as was the pork belly, the chips were nice and crunchy and the mash potato was lovely and creamy.

We had a family lunch for my Dad's birthday last Sunday. I picked it because it could accommodate steak lovers, vegetarians and small children - not an easy feat. The food was absolutely fantastic. We all ordered different things and everyone enjoyed their meals. I had the burger and the meat was top quality - it tasted excellent. The reason... More

Stopped off at this restaurant last night. My family and I did the Cliff walk from Bray to Graystones and had to drop home my sister who lives in Donneybrook so this was a convenient location to eat and she had been here before and recommended it. It did not disappoint. We arrived in the restaurant at about 6 and... More

We made last minute reservations and they squeezed us in. The food was very tasty. We had a variety of meals at our table and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their food. Staff was friendly. Though pricy it was well worth it.

This is a fantastic eaterie. We found it by chance and without a reservation, the staff were able to find us a table despite being very busy. It's not cheap but the food we had was amazing. Steak was one of the best I have ever eaten. There's a great selection of drinks on offer. The surroundings are contemporary and... More

Called in to the chop house for a quick meal this week while on a shopping trip. I had tried to go for lunch some weeks ago but there was no entry due to a private party. I had the fish and chips and the chocolate assiette. The excellent barman sounded me out to have a beer to accompany the... More

A gastropub with a fabulous atmosphere and very friendly staff who know their wine and food inside out. The food was excellent, well presented and portioned and enjoyed by all at the table. All courses were tasty and I wish I had room for more. Everyone ordered different cooking of the steaks and everyone was bang on. A highly recommended... More
