I would rarely like a meal from starter to the coffee. Amazing quality of food and refined cuisine. The coffee is good, the wine list is good, the food excellent. Maybe the room is a bit dark but that's the only thing. Recommend it 100%

We dined here during our stay in Dublin. It is a lovely restaurant with attentive staff and delicious food. Superb wine selection. Prices are a little high but worth the extra for the quality. We will definitely return and recommend it for a special occasion.

The food was beyond amazing and I was very pleased with the separate vegetarian menu however I think the addition of some more vegetarian options would be very nice to give more choice .

I recently visited Dax for a family celebration and was so impressed. Everything was just perfect. I am vegetarian and although there was only the one option for me (not uncommon) it was beautiful. Everyone enjoyed their meal very much, and the staff were fantastic....More
