Excellent menu, great service and interesting atmosphere was perfect for a business dinner but expected would be great for any occasion. Really enjoyed the wine list as well.

After building the restaurant up in my head I was very disappointed! The food did taste good, but no better than your average early bird anywhere else in Dublin. Not one dish stood out as special. The portion size is probably the worst part of...More

We had a great evening here with friends. The staff were fantastic, could not have been more helpful though not intrusive. The food tasted as good as any we have ever had. My steak was cooked to perfection but was quite small. Having said that,...More
