                                The food in this place is really not worth the price you pay. Al though it tastes fine, the food does not seem fresh. Cocktails are nice. I went there for my partners birthday and mentioned in my booking that it’s his birthday and expected them to provide a dessert themselves however, I had to check with them 2-3 times before they actually did it.

                                Beautiful table on a sunny evening for a pre-theatre dinner. Service was attentive and quick and all guests were happy with their dishes. Portions and generous and the setting is a great choice for a pre-theatre dinner. We were fortunate to have a large round table by the open deck windows.

                                The location is excellent, great for pre theatre. The food was ok, quite a limited menu. I ordered lamb, it was mostly fat, but when, I mentioned it, the girl, took it off the bill.

                                Food was ok but not great. Noise level was higher than we expected and a nuisance. Prices are a little high for what you get.

                                Main courses were gorgeous, the hake I’m particular was lovely. Would definitely recommend

                                Really enjoyed our time in Charlotte Quay. We arrived a bit early but they accommodated us. The service was timely and friendly. The food was excellent , tasty and portioned well. The value for money was as expected. I’d definitely return.

                                Had an amazing dining experience! The food was spectacular and the staff were very attentive and extremely kind. (They even went the extra mile and sang happy birthday to me which made celebrating my birthday alone feel so special). Would 100% recommend. Can't wait to go back.

                                Superb staff, lovely location, a little chilly on arrival but the doors were closed soon afterwards. All main courses were well cooked using good produce, resulting in satisfying flavours and textures. The starters were a little rather hit and miss.

                                Four of us had the pre-theatre menu. THe food was nice but the squid starter was very cheewy, overdone unfortunately. But the flavours were good. The Hake for main course was lovely, served with white asparagus and baby leek. We forgot to orders sides (€6 extra) but a last minute order of fries turned up pretty quickly. Overall good for the pre-theatre menu (2 courses) of €35. Good cocktail and wine selection.

                                Great tasting food in a great location. Portions are a bit small (ordered the fish) but perfect with a side dish. Starter and desert were perfect and the pastry melted in you mouth.

                                It was such a pleasant , novel experience prior to attending War on Drugs in the 3 Arena and having been out of touch for the past 2 years due to COVID . From the moment we were seated I could have spent my time watching the staff especially the bar man whose work rate and their time management was extraordinary. The food was delicious starter and main course and it was very obvious the attention to detail by the Chefs transferred onto the plate. I would certainly recommend it to other friends.
