Arrived 5.30 sharp.. felt we were being very rush constantly asking to take order .. we were very aware we only had table for the stated time .. which was fine but just felt under pressure.. I would have ordered a bottle of wine but didn’t as didn’t feel I could relax enjoy.. we ordered 2 aprol spritz.. not much atmosphere I know was early.. a bit disappointing .. I go again when normal business returns

We were dining outdoors and the man looking after our table was very friendly and efficient. The food was delicious and there was a lovely friendly atmosphere. They had all Covid 19 health and safety notices and sanitizers in place while still maintaining a very welcoming and relaxed atmosphere. We felt safe and relaxed

This has been our 4th visit and again we were not disappointed.As usual the staff were very friendly and also very helpful.Allowed plenty of time to view the menu and make our choice. In relation to wine again staff very helpful in helping us make our choice.

The quality of the food was excellent and this coupled with the efficient and friendly staff it will not be long until we return.

As it was only outside dining there was not the same buzz if the whole restaurant was open but again the staff made up for this.

This is an excellent restaurant in the centre of Dublin which serves excellent food and wine at a reasonable price plus the staff are friendly and focused on their customers.

We went for brunch on a weekend. The outdoor terrace was gorgeous. The weather was quite unpleasant but that did not impact anything as the terrace was sheltered and outdoor heating made it cosy. The food arrived quickly and was very tasty. The staff made was nice and helpful. Definitely will be coming back.
