Great atmosphere, lovely looking place, polite and attentive staff, and food to savour. The calamari was so tender it was almost insulting to chew it. The fish and chips had crispy batter and flaky soft fish, and i'm assured the steak was amazing as well!...More

Food was amazing - especially the seafood pasta and their specials board burgers. Staff very friendly and welcoming. Relaxing venue and superb decor Would certainly return when next visiting Dublin
