    I was delighted with my French toast which came with streaky rashers and fruit. My partner's poached eggs were on the small side - I would suggest using larger eggs. All in all, everything was well cooked and presented. There was lots of fun banter among staff and the decor was cosy and nostalgic. I felt very well looked after and the meal was good value for two brunch dishes and two coffees at €32. We'll be back!

    Fantastic experience. Menu was simple, with a good selection of wines. A shame the wines by the glass are just wines from Chile, there are some good Italians and Portuguese too.. other than that, everything went well. Waiter was very knowledgeable and nice, and every item we ordered was delicious. Great ambiance too as we were in the back of the restaurant, with good space between tables and low noise level. Very good experience overall, will definitely come back.

    One small observation is that Fish & chips @ €24 on a brunch menu seemed a little pricey. But overall it wouldn't stop me returning.

    Went for the early bird with three children under 10. We could not have been made more welcome. Small things make this restaurant, the attentive of the staff, the treacle bread, the quality of the ice cream. All things that could be overlooked but are not. A well run ship, with good food and beautiful live music on a Friday. The David Bowie covers were icing ok then cake. Headed home full and singing ;-)

    The staff in 8a are always exceptional and last night was no different. They are so warm and friendly and professional. There was a guitarist playing who was excellent and really added to the wonderful ambiance. We have been to 8A many times and we will continue to return.
