We called in without a booking on a Thursday evening and sadly there was no tables available so we decided to eat at the bar which didn't disappoint. The food was excellent and service good. We will return. Our recommendation is to book a table.

Went there yesterday for dinner with my husband and three children. Waitress was very pleasant, couldn't fault her. We ordered chicken wings by 2 for starter, very nice. We ordered ribs x 2 and burgers x 2 and pasta fie mains. The ribs looked as if they had been popped in the microwave and were very average. The burgers were... More

Really nice place, food and service. We went on a Saturday morning for brunch after hearing many good things about the place and weren't disappointed at all. The servings are huge though - 3 huge pancakes and about 20 pieces of streaky bacon. Brunch is served from 11am - 4pm which is really good for those who want a late... More

Very tasty prawns to start followed by the seafood linguine which was also delicious but would have preferred if it wasn't served with so many empty prawn heads & clam shells .When making a booking Make sure they confirm you will be seated at a table not at the bar.

2 of us arrived at 11:30am on a Sunday and were seated at the bar straight away. The barman was very friendly and helpful. Coffees arrived very fast and looked beautiful. I ordered the huevos rancheros which was absolutely fantastic. The portion was so big that I didn't even come close to finishing it! There was a great selection for... More

Ate here for Sunday brunch. I have to say they have the best French toast in Dublin. Fantastic service and I will make sure to return.

Got in on a Saturday night. Busy as usual and we had a great meal. Nachos and wings to start are superb. The rib eye steak was as good as any I've had. Perfectly cooked and seasoned. Ribs were a big hit too. Generous portions allow take home as well.

Best Brunch I have had in Dublin so far. Beats Herbstreet in my humble opinion and eggs are perfectly cooked. Will be back!

American style brunch complete with chicken and waffles which are delicious! The smokey baked beans are the best I've had and the 'steak and eggs' dish is a very generous portion and never dissapoints. Service can sometimes be a little on the slow side but overall very good. Be prepared to wait if you show up at prime brunch time... More

Very nice brunch spot. Always quiet full - which is what you expect from a 'top brunch spot' in Dublin.  Excellent quality food and great value too.  The Shakshouka in particular was de-licious!  Highly recommend!

Thank Sabrina V
