Experience our fabulous outdoor space for lunch. Rain or sunshine the Garden has a cosy and heated atmosphere in any case and can be requested, subject to availability.

The bright and airy first floor dining room is a really comfortable space to relax and enjoy lunch or dinner and a glass or two of fine wine. We use locally sourced, seasonal produce where possible combined with the very best Italian ingredients to create a menu that is modern and unique. We consider ourselves a contemporary Irish restaurant with an Italian influence.

Reservation is limited to 2-hours only; then they ask you to leave for the next booking.

That sounds inconvenient if you're looking for dine and drinks; ask for Drury to consider if customers are dining in or just a quick drink and classify the time ahead.

The atmosphere was nice but the food portions were small and over priced. We ordered a steak for €24 euro and all that was served on the plate was a piece of steak sauce over it- nothing else was included for this price. Not sure how you can justify this price to your customers

Really nice place with a great busy atmosphere. Food was decent however it was unfortunate that we had 6 small plates served all at the one time as food got cold as we worked through each plate. It would be really helpful to maybe stagger food service. Really lovely staff though and would recommend to a friend.

Tapas style dining.
Very tasty but expensive enough.
Outdoor seating well spaced out and quiet.

Food is great. Cocktails are really great too. there is not a lot options of wine that you can have only a glass of (you''ll need to have a bottle in most of them which isn't great if your table is not drinking with as well).

Four of us got small bites to share and a lot of our food was cold. My friend got fish as a main course, it was over cooked and over priced. No atmosphere.

I have been here a few times recently and can't recommend it highly enough. The staff were great, it felt very safe in terms of COVID-19, mask wearing while not at your table was encouraged. The staff were so nice the times I visited here, really attentive, friendly and down to earth - they were the perfect balance between attentiveness and knowing when to leave you alone. Food was delicious and great value too! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the place!

Food and service very good. Only negative thing was that we were a party of 4 seated at two very small tables, not big enough to lay all our food and drinks on.

Had lovely food & drinks in the outdoor area. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Quick service.
Might suggest putting coasters on chair legs as when chair are being moved, they scratch off floor making a very irritating sound.
There was a wedding upstairs. A balcony overlooks the outdoor area. Some children, I’m assuming from the wedding, were running around on balcony moving the furniture which was quite annoying.
Regardless of issues, I would definitely visit again.
