The polenta is to die for. It comes with the cod, which is also exceptional.

Went for a meal here with my partner and 2 friends. We were early and we were given a nice table in the bar area while waiting on our table. We had a delicious meal with nice wine. The service was excellent and we had a very enjoyable night.

Lovely evening, the food was delicious, shared the prawn starter and had the chicken main and the burger, all amazing! And the service was great and the restaurant had a good vibe overall. Perfect spot to sip a glass of wine on a Friday night

Absolutely loved the gambas dish, Ham and cheese croquettes and frosé.

Good menu, food, staff and drinks. Was quiet enough so we could have a chat, nice relaxed atmosphere.

Cant wait to go back.

Thank you to Charlotte Quay for hosting a group of 6 of us on Friday the 3rd of July. The resturant went above and beyond to make us feel at ease in the resturant with the new covid 19 restrictions in place (which they implemented impeccably). The food, the atmosphere and the service was second to none as per usual.

A massive thank you to our sever AnneMarie who made our evening - her bubbly can do attitude rubbed off on our party and had us all in great form. We’ll be back!!

We were there for a pre-theatre meal and was really quiet. I wished that we had been there for the whole evening as it turned out to be a wonderful experience. Food was amazing and the venue itself is really special! Would definitely go back!

Our waitress was very friendly, helpful and professional - we felt she went a step above to ensure that we were enjoying ourselves. Our party were awkward for the restaurant, as two of us were arriving at 6:00, and needed to leave at 7:30, and three others of our party weren't arriving until 7:00, and were in no hurry! But they made it all work. The food was delicious, particularly the Venison meat ball starter - it was yummy! We had a bit of food envy going on at our table, although everyone enjoyed their choices.
This restaurant has become a favourite of ours when attending a show at the Bord Gais Energy Theatre, and we are always happy with our meal and service.

Myself and my son had a memorable experience in this restaurant. The view of the canal is stunning, the food was simply gorgeous. I had the confit of duck and my son had a burger. Taste sensations for both of us. The ambiance was so good. The service was impeccable.

The location is superb. But privacy is difficult to get. A steak was 31 € and it was quite hard to cut. For a fraction of the cost I get something way better at the local pub.

The staff were really good. I asked what was gluten free on the menu and they knew straight away. They also replaced sausages on the cod dish with bacon for me because they weren't gluten free. So good!
