Only knocking a star off atmosphere as it was so quiet in terms of number of customers. Actually I think it has a really nice ambience. Stunning looking and delicious tasting food. Enjoyed every minute we were there. There are restaurants in the area with far more customers who don’t realise what they’re missing!

Absolutely loved it! Stunning presentation of food and tastes worked so well, first time having fine dining with an Asian twist. Staff were great too, attentive and informative.

A wonderful tradition of a pre-Christmas lunch with friends. The atmosphere in the dining room is perfect; busy but not overly crowded. A good ratio of waiters to patrons, attentive but not interruptive. The quality of the food was excellent, as was so the case on previous visits. The bill was steep but that was mostly due to our inability to forgo the temptation of some very good bottles, the food prices were most reasonable.

Because there are only 2 sittings, you're very limited in what times you can eat. As a result, the 12 o'clock sitting was dead which was a shame as it damaged the atmosphere. Maybe they should just allow bookings as people choose.

We had the tasting menu. Our waiter chose some excellent wines too. Couldn't have been better. I especially love the friendly atmosphere, since I find most fine dining restaurants a bit too formal.

After 9 tasting courses, you’re so full but still want more! The food is deliciously fabulous. Devine food in a wonderful ambience. Staff are amazing too, very attentive but not in your face.

We had an amazing night, went for a tasting menu and we were both speechless, the rich pallet of tastes made us go back to the childhood memories. Service was amazing not only friendly but also professional and it added a lot to overplay experience! We will definitely go back!

Really like the place, the food and particularly the staff. Looking forward to the new menu, you should update your web site, that’s the only moan.

We had a really enjoyable lunch last Saturday, the food was exquisite, genuinely some of the best food we have had in Dublin. Unfortunately the service was a little lacking, the Front of House Declan really didnt make much of an effort. We asked his recommendation on wine and dessert and he came across as being quite lack lustre and disengaged. The atmosphere was a bit off, particularly when we first arrived but picked up a bit when more people came in. The background music was a bit strange (boyzone etc) which didn't fit the tone of the restaurant and we both felt a better choice here could have really helped the atmosphere. Overall the food was so good that it made up for the other negatives and we hope to be back very soon
