I had made a booking a few weeks prior. I specifically asked for the courtyard. there was some light rain and we were told that the courtyard was closed, which was untrue. our seats out front were wet and the noise and smog impossible. some people were accomodated in the courtyard. I will not be back

Loved our first dining experience post lockdown & this time we had a baby too! Staff were so lovely & accommodating & the place was spotless, staff masked up properly & it just felt super safe. Can’t wait to go back for indoor dining again.

Booked the restaurant a long time ago. Was very disappointed that we where sitting on the street side beside the bus stop. Fumes were very strong and left a bad taste.

One of my favorite places to eat in Dublin. Love the courtyard - great ambience. Staff always friendly and professional. Menu is limited but everything on offer tastes amazing. Better to do a few dishes really well than offer many and lower the standard. Will be returning very soon!

The staff was diligent from start to end. Well cope new protocol measures, food served on time, the Christmas menu was good.
Nothing to add to such a glam and trendy Restaurant.
A little suggestion, it could be a bit busy on the main area, and less privacy for guests who are looking for not catching the attention. I will try next time a table around the main bar.

The food was excellent- we both had beetroot and goats cheese starter and the rib eye for mains. The Blossom cocktail was fantastic and the french Pinot Noir, perfect. Good social distancing in place and staff were wearing masks. The only downside was that the music was too loud and more suitable for a bar than a restaurant.

One vegan option which is a salad so slight cop out but the antipasti platter and coctails were Devine. So one very happy customer and one not so much! Ambiance was amazing. Was waiting a good while between drinks which was annoying because when we finally got them we were hurried to finish the wine because of our time slot although if we had been served quicker we wouldnt of have to of knocked it back.
