Food quality was very good.
Service and value for money very good.
cleanliness very good but would suggest washing down the adjacent pavements to the restaurant prior to opening, the odour at the entrance and beside the new outdoor dining wasn't pleasant. Apart from that we will definitely return! :)

From the only 4 mains, the most popular (seafood stew) was not available, one of the other 3 was vegan which made our choices very limited. The food was good but not so extraordinary, the cocktails were excellent.

hi and thanks for visiting. due to our restricted operations as a result of Covid, it is necessary for us to have a reduced menu - we are sorry that the seafood sold out but as all of our food is so fresh, despite our best efforts we sometimes run out of something (we had our busiest night when you were in). please note that the vegan main course is one of our most popular dishes - it happens to be vegan but is as legitimate and delicious a choice as any other dish on the menu. thanks again

We got to sit in the 'secret' outdoor garden, which was lovely, very cool and shaded on a hot day. I've had breakfast and lunch here before so knew the food would be good but I was still very impressed. The set Mezze menu is great value for the quality and amount of food you get. The baba ganoush and kofta were particularly tasty. Also, the staff are probably the most polite I've encountered recently so well done to them 👏

Very friendly staff despite minor downfalls. Warmly greeted on arrival and served drinks immediately. Never cleared our starter plates after mains despite filling our glasses twice. This was awkward as the table was very small. Very noisey on the street including Luas passing. Overpriced. Could only pick from set menu even though we just wanted a mains. Ended up with having to have four starters and a main. Waiter over our table was inattentive even though he walked past twice when we finished eating. Chicken main was nice. Artichoke starter was bland. Would love to try from their regular full menu.

Thanks for visiting. We do make clear when reserving (on website, menus online, terms & conditions of booking) that we do a set menu on Thurs-Sat. As we only have outdoor seating due to Covid requirements, it is along the street (as is the case for almost every restaurant in Dublin) but most customers love the charm of the Luas passing & vibrancy of the street! We serve our food mezze style, we do leave the plates pile up if people haven't finished their dishes as part of the dining experience!

Fantastic brunch. Lovely staff. Only negative I could see is the courtyard area , I reckon, couldn't be classed as outdoors as it was technically enclosed! It was very stuffy but it was an incredibly hot day.

Ate brunch in Brother Hubbard (meat mezze and pork mojo) - delicious. Service was excellent, quick and friendly. Also ideal for outdoor dining, the rain was lashing down but we were well protected.

We really enjoyed our brunch at Brother Hubbards. We had a last minute change in the numbers and the staff worked to facilitate us which we really appreciated. We all had the eggs baba bida which were delicious. The service was also outstanding with the staff making sure we had everything we wanted and in a timely manner. We will definitely be back!
