Atmosphere would be better if the lighting was softened. Waiting staff dress code could create a better Chinese theme.

Booked as we had a voucher but had low expectations after a poor critics review. Couldn't have been more wrong. Seriously good food, great bar and setting and all reasonably priced

Though the restaurant was virtually empty when we were there for lunch this did not perturb us. The window seat we had was fantastic and we all had a wonderful and very relaxing lunch. Looking forward to the next time.

A little expensive but you’d pay the same for worse in many other restaurants. Staff are lovely, decor is beautiful, food delicious. Hope this restaurant does well. The setting, with the view, would be incredible for “afternoon tea” but I’m not sure the cuisine would suit it. Perhaps during the day it could mix up the menu to facilitate scones, cakes and light bites with tea & coffee. Other places in inferior settings do very well from this. For dinner, I wouldn’t change a thing! Highly recommend

Still salivating over last nights experience at The Old Post Office Blackrock. It was our first time to visit and we were blown away by service, decor, food and the view out over Dublin bay. Staff were professional, helpful and accommodating and the food was exquisite. The attention to detail was outstanding and the decor sophisticated. We most definitely will return

Excellent dining Szechuan experience in an idyllic setting with a window looking out towards Dublin Bay. The set menu for 4 was sufficient to taste the flavours of Szechuan with a subtle spiciness..Highly recommend. xiexie.

Food was great but I thought that the starter helpings were very small considering the prices - 2 Scallops for almost €20 is not good value even if they tasted great. The Restaurant was not busy and at times it was difficult to get service - but once we did manage to get somebodies attention the service was very good. I also think that the Menu could have a little more variety but have no issues with any of the food served.

Everything about the restaurant was good....except the food and the prices charged for the less than average quality fare. Just not up to standard , on any front. Service was friendly and attentive, and tried hard to make our experience an enjoyable one. The dining space itself is superb, with great views over Dublin Bay. But the food quality must improve, and prices must reflect this also.
