I often have the steak which is not the best steak in the world but for the price it's definitly worth it. There isa nice menue and an... More

If you like French bistro food, this place will not disappoint. Downstairs in a basement setting, it has loads of atmosphere. The steak frites was generous and delicious. Great value. Would come back here in a heartbeat.

The quality of food vs price is excellent - affordable and tasty! We ordered Foie Gras as a starter which was very good. Perhaps if there were a couple of extra pieces of bread for the foie gras it could have been even better. The mussels were cooked to perfection and the french fries were excellent! As a dessert, we... More

Had a nice enough dinner for the price. I was excited to try some nice French Cuisine here in Dublin. While the food was decent for the price, the staff were not as equal. The service was not as good as one would expect for the type of restaurant it is. We had to wait at least 20-30 minutes in... More

Look we were a big group maybe 14 or 15 , but it worked very well and what I liked most was the food and the "buzz". I had the crab creme brûlée which was just great, followed by steak which was near perfect. My colleagues all enjoyed their food ( and they are an odd bunch). Being semi-outdoors is... More
