Our 4th time here. Overall comments this time: -waiter very pleasant but spoke far too quickly when explaining the specials. Especially for my mother who is harder of hearing. Even when we asked him to repeat it, it was very fast - portion sizes were quite small for starters and desserts - but then the dinner portion was over-sized! - food was good though but have prices gone up???

Delicious food a short and scenic stroll from the centre of Dublin. Sunday lunch was everything it should be, homely, tasty and filling. If we lived closer we’d be back every weekend.

We regularly dine at The Old Spot and it is our first choice when we have a big group since they are so accommodating and the wait staff is fantastic!

Wonderful ambient. Tasty vegetables risotto and ice cream, but worst ribeye ever.

Ate at the Old Spot on a Thursday evening with two friends. Was most disappointed. My prawn starter was lovely but the Monkfish main was unpleasantly dry, very over cooked and over seasoned. My companions pork belly was dry and inedible. We ordered more chips and filled up on those. Terrible value for money will NOT be going back.

The room is "noisy" at best - few soft furnishings to reduce sound and, in our case, we were seated next to two large groups of business men who talked and joked with rising decibel levels as each bottle of wine was consumed. It was very difficult for me to converse with my partner and took away from an otherwise excellent meal.

We booked our wedding reception at The Old Spot from abroad, without even seeing the place, and WOW was it a good decision. Jane, the event manager, was extremely kind and available and answered all of our questions via email. We arrived on the day prior to the event, Jane welcomed us, showed us the upstairs room, answered a whole bunch of new questions from a nervous couple(us), and assured us that everything will be perfect. The event itself was great! The upstairs room was tastefully decorated, Jane even decorated our "naked" wedding cake for us with beautiful flowers. The food was amazing. Ian and the rest of the staff took great care of us, even when we needed an extra table for 10 more guests, everything was calmly and kindly taken care of. They even kept the upstairs bar open for us after our event was over since the bar downstairs was full and we didn't reserve any seats. Such a great experience. Surely a day we will never forget. Our families can't stop talking about how wonderful it was. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Maayan and Anton Michel

We loved the fact that you remembered it was a birthday lunch which hadn't been mentioned since booking on line...and the candle in the Eton Mess was a scream! But there is a negative and that is the way in which the tip was not acknowledged in any way. The meal was delicious but the fact that the tip was taken for granted, absolutely, was disappointing. Sadly, that's the issue that generates most discussion among those with whom we have shared this otherwise very enjoyable experience. If we hadn't included it on the card but presented it in hard cash, we wonder would it have made any difference...but we're not convinced. We would return - but next time, well.............!

A Thursday night date with DH, and this place did exactly what it said: It hits the spot! Delicious food, a vast array of drinks, and excellent, pleasant service - we'll be back.
