Great food, lovely staff. Entertained by dem two and thoroughly enjoyed it. Not as expensive as some places in Dublin. Will be lovely in the summer months having a wine by the canal

Got tired of the same old sloppy eejits in the city centre so went here on a Saturday night. The place is clean and we got a table. The drink was good and was fairly flowing, never waiting very long to be served at the bar. The music was great also. Two lads on guitars singing all sorts of covers. Volume wasn't at all intrusive so you could have a chat during it too. Will definitely be back!

Since the change in management the canal bar went downhill. I ordered the chicken fillet burger which took nearly a hour to come out. It was overcooked and bland with no sauce on the burger. I then ordered a chocolate fudge cake, the cake was burnt and the chef tried to cover it with chocolate sauce. If that's not bad enough I also found a hair in the cake. Absolutely disgusting I would never eat out of it again I feel so sick. The staff are crap took about a half an hour just to get a menu. The atmosphere is boring no even music.

After returning to the Canal Bar after a terrible experience I was yet treated to another one the food there was not worth its wait and ignorant bar tender was not great. I would recommend everyone to stay away as prices are also not worth it unless you like to lose money.
