I had a quiet table down near the kitchen and it was great as I was still able to enjoy the atmosphere the restaurant had to offer but it wasn’t too loud for wanting to talk either. The service was exceptional and the delicious food was delivered to the table promptly after it was ordered- there was a good variety on the menu too!
I would definitely return to this restaurant! 🎉

The food was atrocious and needs revamp. The wine collection was average the cocktails, service and ambience are good. Overall not value for money because it is on the high-side of price. We spent 155 for 2 people. Plus courtesy to acknowledge the service which was v good indeed.

We were keen to have some tapas, cocktails and wine and have an evening out. The easy availability of tables despite Dublin being packed did make us wonder. Sadly we found awful food. Paella was crispy and hugely over cooked. The other few dishes were greasy and deep fried. The dips came straight from squeezy bottles. It’s not authentic in any way. Wine was good. Atmosphere pleasant enough. Toilets were clean but very obvious signs of white powder on the shelves, I can only assume it was cleaning product…….. we left after one course. I guess we’ve worked out why tables are so readily available in one of the most sought after parts of town.

Hi Daniel, As we always try to improve our food and service quality we have passed your remarks to the kitchen senior staff. Before you doubt our authenticity I want to let you know that all our sauces and tapas are homemade. The use of squeeze bottles is for speed of service purposes. In regards to your wonder of available tables, your booking was at 5pm with all our tables being fully booked from 7pm hence the few free tables. And yes, we do use cleaning products when cleaning our toilets.

Wonderful food and great service. We were sat "outside" but in a covered, heated area that felt like a peaceful and cosy conservatory. Excellent wine choices as well.

Lovely experience but the waitress reminded us about 7 times that we needed to leave by 8pm (which we were aware of and had a booking). We left at 7.57pm with no problem. She felt the need to constantly remind us that we needed to leave by 8. She even told us at 7.25 that we could order one more drink.. it was odd and not welcome.

Really nice decor, good music and ambience.
Very friendly waiting staff, Good wine list abs interesting menu.

Ordered tapas and pintxos and the portion sizes were small and quality of the dishes varied. Calamari was poor, chewy and over battered and fried.
Not a fan if the cheesecake either
