They were busy when we went there but everything seems to be tidy and clean. However, the food we received was overcooked but they were very apologetic and happy to cook us a new one. We, in the end, got the 10oz ribeye (originally we ordered the cowboy ribeye). The food in general was OK and unfortunately the flavour isn't memorable. We expected more considering the price. Though, we appreciate the front staff as they were very nice.

Staff were pleasant but clueless. Never available when you needed something and clumsy. I get that staffing is an issue instead industry right now. Further evidence here.

There are other options too, just the right mix. Service was excellent, music was easy o the ear and not too loud. Would definitely recommend this place and I will be back!

We found this online and because of the extensive menu of mainly Steak we went for it. When we got there we were given a different and very limited one page menu (obviously shortened for Covid reasons) which is not a problem but we should have know this in advance as we would not have booked it. We have 3 steak loving men in the family. The Mac & Cheese is exceptional as was the Burger but the other 4 members of the party did not enjoy the main course. Also the 2 staff were not as attentive as you would like but they were run off their feet and could have done with some back up but they were very friendly and courteous, management let them down here. All in all we were very underwhelmed and dropped €230!!! It certainly did not feel like what you would expect for that money. I would struggle to justify paying half of it but I guess thats city centre prices???? Can do alot better

Burgers are very good too but after reopening, there are no chips with burgers (back in March burgers were with salad and chips, all includeded in price) and now €15 for just a burger is too expensive.

We were asked for our drinks order 4 times in the space of 5 minutes, although we had already ordered. This continued through the meal and was intrusive enough that I asked the waiters to leave us alone for 20 minutes. Food was average at best.
