    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 ;-)

    A party of 9 of us ate here last week for my graduation. It was the best meal any of us have had in a long long time. Food was amazing, as was the presentation of the food, service was outstanding and the cost of the meal was so reasonable. Looking forward to eating here again soon

    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.

    I took my wife here for a special birthday dinner. Unfortunately there was not much special about it. We ordered cocktails before we ordered food, but the starters arrived first, which we sent back. Eventually we got our drinks but the starters reappeared long before we had finished them. In exasperation we decided to take the starters. The table was cleared without any question as to whether we wanted bread, which we did. A new batch of bread was then practically thrown on to the table by the blonde lady (manager?). The whole experience was quite unsettling and did not lend itself to a pleasant evening. The food was adequate though nothing to get excited about. In fairness the male manager (?) offered us a drink at the end but that did little to put the place in a good light. We will not be back Michael Healy

    We had a wonderful time at 8a brasserie and will certainly be back. Service was exemplary, my husband said it’s the best meal he’s had in months. I really appreciated a selection of specials and the early bird menu which kept the price totally reasonable. Really delicious and enjoyable experience.

    It's always good to know about a restaurant like 8A Brasserie as it is very spacious so you have a good chance of getting a table at short notice and on busy evenings. There is a very good balanced menu with something for everybody. We tested the menu with two different starters, two different mains and two different desserts. All were very good and we enjoyed excellent service. The only two minor negatives were that it was a tad noisy and the wine was somewhat overpriced eg €41 for a bottle of Albarino. That said, I would be happy going back anytime.
