We all had the tasting menu. The food was absolutely delicious and we enjoyed every minute of our evening. The atmosphere was lovely and the staff were equally lovely.

I really don’t know where to begin, it was such a fabulous experience. It was our first visit with our friends and we all opted for the tasting menu with paired wines. Each course was stunning we beginning with oysters, pate, those amazing seed crisps, followed by asparagus with cockles, halibut with the tastiest green beans; finishing with cheese plate and dessert. I’m sure I’m forgetting something but it was all stunning! The wines were really interesting and complimented each dish. Service was excellent, everyone was so chilled out and warm. I can’t wait to return.

Great little restaurant on Thomas St. Food was excellent; it’s mostly small plates so you get to try lots of smaller dishes. They also do large sharing meals - will try next time. Interesting food combinations with a lot of detail in every dish; homemade pickles, breads, crackers, cheese...especially loved the lobster dish with peas, beautifully spiced and full of delicate flavour. Only dish that didn’t work for me was the parfait with potato waffles. Both elements nice on their own but a bit too cloying together. Interesting, off-beat wine list...we ordered a bottle recommended by the waiter and it was great. Service was good, unobtrusive and relaxed. Place is on a major tourist trail and we saw plenty of passers-by being turned away so hopefully this place does really well. Looking forward to going back soon to try more of the food and wine :)

Wonderful meal, it would be perfect if the oyster was cooler. Personally, I prefer oyster to be served with lower temperature : ) Overall, it’s an excellent restaurant I’ll visit again if I am back to Dublin someday.

We arrived 8 minutes early for the first sitting of the evening , which was 5.30 and were told we could not wait at a table but had to come back at 5.30. I was with my mother who has difficulty walking and she actually mentioned this to the waitress . We had to leave and kill time in a shop next door . This was an extremely bad start to the evening.Very disappointing.

We were a couple that shared the snacks, foie gras, skate with clams and a family-style halibut main course. All the food was delicious, served in good time by friendly and knowledgeable staff. Relaxed atmosphere where i felt i could ask for bread to mop up the sauce!! We got a nice bottle of white wine to pair with our food and then a couple of glasses at the end of the meal and the bill came out to €155 which we thought was great value. We will back! Thanks

Another amazing meal, love the way we are able to have lots of little bits n not just three courses. Great ingredients, artfully combined. Innovative, without being precious, the master of "sauce "or should it be "reductions" or whatever the posh word is for the gravy !! We'll be back soon.
