Great staff and lovely food. The music was a bit loud for lunch time, which was annoying but over all very enjoyable.

The food is good and the service is very friendly. However, it is an expensive night out. The question is that if you are going to pay those prices perhaps you should be looking at a fine dinning?

The place feels old and a bit tired, the leather on the seats was cracked and a few broken tiles on the floor of the bathrooms and dodgy paint repairs on the ceiling. Feels like the place needs a revamp.

Kitchen at the counter seats, kitchen looked dirty and unorganised.

Drinks came halfway through the meal and had to be reminded of.

Food was okay and very expensive for what and how much we got. Bread was stale and portion sizes we’re extremely small for prices e.g tuna sashimi was 3 paper thin slices less than an inch wide was €12.50

Overall very disappointing.

Never fails to disappoint. Great food, service and atmosphere. Lovely bar upstairs too if you need to move from your table after you have eaten.

Overall the food quality is good to be fair however the portion sizes are a joke. The menu says for sharing but to be honest it would just be enough for 1 person. Service was lacking and staff were not attentive. For a restaurant that is positioned as a tapas place it’s not really a tapas place...

Ordered a port and it never arrived when this was queried after about 20mins we were told no as they needed the table back. The port was on the bill along with 2 extra drinks that was never ordered.

Overly loud as was very busy. Seating set up not great. Had selected low seating rather then bar but turned out to be a weird high-ish bench set up. Felt people were on top of you. Normal seating would have been better. Bar actually would have been better.

This restaurant is amazing: the food (taste, portion, cooking, flavours), the location, the service.
One of my favourite restaurant of all times !

Terrible Staff, rude and dropping food. Very overpriced, forced us to get the set menu which I was never told when booking. Waited 30 minutes for our table and then another 30 minutes. Food was alright but definitely not worth the price and very small portions. Tried to share our issues with the staff who did not care. Would not recommend

Lovely meal, drinks slow coming to the table. Staff pleasant and Manager excellent.
Noisy, but its C'mas and tables too close together. Otherwise enjoyable!

Our first visit, and we were very impressed. We had excellent advice from our server, Vinney (I hope that I have spelt this right), who continued to look after us through our meal. All of the tapas dishes were beautiful, but we would particularly draw attention to the duck spring rolls, which were exquisite.

The food was great, there was a nice atmosphere. I told them we were celebrating my friends engagement and they brought out a little dessert with a candle in it.

Top notch experience. Hadn't been there for a couple of years and they still remembered my sugar intolerance. The service is even better than the food and that is saying something.

It was difficult to get the waiters attention in order to order drinks or food. The tapas were quite saucy and rich and quite similar. Good selection of cocktails but overall too expensive for the experience.

Counter experience extremely disappointing as we were looking to viewing some real cooking not just food prep a wasted opportunity to add something unique. Been asked to move from the counter after depart at 10:30 made no sense when the counter was virtually empty. Staff great!!

We went with a taste.ie voucher which meant a limited cocktail and food menu. Neither was in anyway limiting and easily adjusted for my gluten free restrictions. Staff were courteous and knowledgeable. My only concern would be that personal and table top space would be limited if busy. It was quiet when we were there and we sat at the counter, which was perfect.

Amazing meal for a group of 6. We were spilt for choice and the food was amazing. The black pudding and pork belly were amazing. Cocktails were fabulous. We all really enjoyed. Not cheap but well worth it.

Loved the food, the service was excellent and the atmosphere was great but it was so so cold. I had my coat on from dessert onwards. Ye really need to do something about it. I would only go back if i was sitting on the very opposite side of the restaurant to the door or else it was summer time!

Nice ambiance. Good food. Tapas-style. Some dishes better than others. What ruined the evening was the very poor service from our waiter. Order didn’t arrive. He messed up the payment. And was generally not property trained. His refrain was “sorry I’m new”. But a good restaurant should not allow untrained staff to serve customers. Pity.

Hello
service was a little bit too fast.
We were two persons and had seven tapas we received ‏Them altogether so unfortunately they were cold.
And it’s a pity because it was-very good quality and very tasty.
Anyway I can come again very good concept
