Was here twice in December and had the Quinoa,Feta and Basil cakes both times. Amazing. The bread and butter pudding is a meal in itself and absolutely to die for, ask for the brown bread ice cream on the side and fall into a food coma. A little slow on the service but the food is top notch.

Visited 30 Dec 2016. So farewell then Joe, you did the area some service. Farewell also our beloved Pork Knuckle (Schweinshaxe). My ultimate comfort food, deliciously tender slow roasted pork knuckle with perfectly crispy crackling. Seems I'll have to travel further afield (probably Dusseldorf or Koln) to get this level of perfection in the future. Ah well, time to move... More

I've visited here a number of times with wife and also with my family. And today we drove the 45 minute journey to the far side of Dublin just to have their cod and chips. No we're not nuts - it's that good! As usual, it was unpretentious but excellent. Anyone who loves food loves to see apparently simple dishes... More

I have eaten here on many occasions and each time, the food has been delicious! The service is also always excellent. The staff are so so friendly. It is a great place to go if you are coeliac, as they have plenty of gluten free options

I eat here with my family nearly every time I'm in Dublin. When I choose to eat elsewhere I am usually disappointed. Food is great and there's loads of it. Service is prompt and staff are friendly. I'm a very sensitive coeliac and have never been glutened here (not like other restaurants claiming to be gluten free)

Had dinner in the Pub in Monkstown last night. The early bird was great value 21/22€ for 2 courses. The food was delicious! It was my boyfriends birthday and he got a free dessert and sang Happy Birthday to. I cant wait to go back!

We've been going here for many years now - always a great bet for a night out with good food, great staff and a nice atmosphere. Have never eaten upstairs as prefer the buzz of downstairs where you can just as easily pop in for a nice pint of Guinness/glass of wine or a full meal. Staff have always been... More

My wife and I were given a voucher. I walk past fxb's / the pub twice a day but haven't been in for a few years. We went on a Saturday night. The bar and restaurant were both full. The staff were great. Our food was very good. Decent selection of wine by the glass with proper selection of beer... More

Sometimes it's great other times it's dreadful. Usually get the salmon but it's either not cooked to too dry, good is quite bland. staff are 10/10 and always a good atmosphere. Food has gone down hill recently.
