For my husband’s birthday I invites Him for diner at Maat the Thresher. We had a great diner. The oesters were perfect and the maincourse was excellent. It feels like zitting in a big livingroom with all sorts of people. Very cosy. When we come to Dublin Alain we will visit Matt’s Alain for sure.

5 people in squeeze in a 4 person's table, i have to keep moving the chair for staff and people passing by, they are just too busy. Everything else can not complain, oysters are so fresh and fish are delicious.
