I went to this venue for some drinks with a friend. Music was very loud and service was slow and confusing. We had 2 servers come up to take our order then waited 20 min for our cocktails then had to hunt a server down to get another. Seemed like none were assigned to specific sections. We did not eat...

We had booked a table in PYG after having been for drinks previously. We had travelled to Dublin to visit a friend and were looking forward to lunch. Firstly, we had to repeatedly ask the staff to take our order, after numerous attempts and about 30 minutes, someone finally took our order. We noted that everything was overpriced but assumed...

Went on a trip to Dublin with family - husband and two 6 year olds. It was dark and dirty when we entered, but seemed busy and we were tired and hungry. Ordered kids food - mini burger, and asked for it to come with veg - not salad. The burger came and was one inch in diameter, with rocket... More

This place appears like any other eatery/ coffee shop. Had I known there was a bar attached I would have given it a miss (although we thought it was a coffee shop). However we simply wanted coffee or light lunch and queued for a table. Staff seemed under a bit of pressure and there seemed to be some confusion. Prices... More

This place was a great spot to chill with mates. Really enjoyed settling in for an evening out on the town after enjoying some exquisite nachos. The music in this venue was really up tempo and great for a boogie. The beer and staff was on point too. All in all a deadly venue, would recommend to anyone after a... More

This is one of my favourite places in Dublin but the problem is they often change the staff. Last time I've been in the cafe to get some food. The food was ok but suddenly I found a hair, I told the waitress and the supervisor called JUAN came and just said sorry about that but he could not change... More

Kitchen and food is very good, Chiken Wings are exellent and chips are nice and home made, but service works just BAD. Do you they gave us a recipt just before we get food? And we had to paid extra 6€ for service? Maybe because service is BAD that No Bory was giving a tip...

Lovely bar for a drink and catch up with friends. Ideal location close to Grafton St. Always busy and there seems to be a great buzz about the place. Great selection of drinks available. Will definitely return

Having been to Pygmalion many times over the years, I went this month for a drink as I hadn't been in a long time. It's let its self go BIG TIME. It stinks like literally smells like poo and I can't fathom how people were eating in there. The toilets are disgusting, no locks on doors, no toilet paper. Service... More
