Tasty food. Great menu choice / options to choose from. Good, efficient, polite service. Clean toilets plus a new set up outside which means still outside but now minus the wind because of new structure. I also love the ballsbridge location as lovely for a walk afterwards.

I ordered an omelette and it took 50mins to come out (I was on a work lunch). They also forgot the toast so I had to wait another 10mins for this.

We were greeted immediately at the entrance by staff and brought to our table. The menu had a wide range of foods that were all priced reasonably which would make me even more likely to come back. The food was unreal and it was a really nice environment to eat and drink in.
Will definitely be returning!!

The service was extremely poor 2/3 meals were okay barley, 1 meal (BLT hardly fancy) was horrendous and not even eatable sent back to get the same crappy meal just reheated as it was ice cold again still not eatable. The manager on duty was so disinterested never once checked on our table even when there was a food complaint and regularly passed by our table. Service was extremely slow your talking over 20 mins before you even get a drink. Then a long wait again for food or table to be cleared or wait for a bill. Even if the food was delicious I wouldn’t come back here for the poor service alone! Would not recommend to anyone plenty of nicer places around.

Lovely brunch for the price! Big portions, excellent coffee! The mimosas take a little longer to make because the juice is fresh pressed but are SO worth the wait! Will defo be back!

The food was very tasty and good value, and the restaurant is a pleasant room. The staff was friendly and efficient, however one member of the wait staff dropped off a bottle of wine we had ordered without either corking the bottle or providing wine glasses (she had to be prompted to bring glasses). It leads me to believe that further, thorough training is required to bring the waiting service up to the standard of the food and ambience of the restaurant.

Food was good but not great. Service was slow, unorganised. Waited ages for table to be cleared coffee had arrived before this was done. I could see the coffee on the counter 5 mins before it was brought to the table. Very disappointing would not go back.

The service was a bit slow, table wasn’t ready even though we showed up 5 minutes late and took a long time to take our order. But it was worth it for the food, delicious and presented very nicely, would go again

Pretty chaotic. Went during lunchtime from work. Waited for 10 minutes for anyone to come near us after seating. Ordered food and it took 50 minutes to arrive - won't be going back.

Late lunch booking, mid work week, so limited time available. It took 15 minutes for the manager to send a waitress over - most of the tables were empty so not a busy time - and we eventually got our sandwiches half an hour after we arrived. One of our party had to leave 5 minutes later to return to work. The 2 girls waiting the table were very pleasant so no fault there.

Very generous portions, and everything was very tasty. The food is definitely great comfort food, and well-priced as such. The wine-list was small but had some nice choices. The serving staff were just the right sort of attentive, and the outdoor dining space felt peaceful.

Great food, terrible service. Paid no attention to us, couldn’t order more drinks as a result - food took forever. Several tables left due to lack of service, would not recommend

Service was ok , lots of staff huddled around inside talking and not alert to custumers. I had to approach a staff member to order our food, this is not cool when there were many waiting staff and very few customers. Food was ....emmm so so. Vegan Burger itself was fantastic.

I've been a waitress for over 20 years,
Kindest regards,
Fiona

Restaurant is lovely and in a great location. Staff are really friendly but the service was really hit and miss on this occasion. Some food came out cold and had to be replaced. We will be back though.

Food was ok, but I’ve never seen such dysfunctional service. Who orders the beer to the kitchen? Even with hygiene procedures in place that doesn’t add up. We had to wait 20 minutes just to have our beer served, food we would order and the waitress would take another 20 minutes to realise that they’re out of a specific dish and that happened three times to the point that I had to ask what did they have still. Probably won’t return.

Very bad service. Impossible to feel welcome and comfortable, each waitress were reminding us that we should left our table in 1 hour, then in 45 min, then in 30 min, then in 15min. I was feeling like a number in a production factory. Not even able to have a conversation with my friend as the waitress arrives each 10 min to told us about the table.
