Experience our fabulous outdoor space for lunch. Rain or sunshine the Garden has a cosy and heated atmosphere in any case and can be requested, subject to availability.



The bright and airy first floor dining room is a really comfortable space to relax and enjoy lunch or dinner and a glass or two of fine wine. We use locally sourced, seasonal produce where possible combined with the very best Italian ingredients to create a menu that is modern and unique. We consider ourselves a contemporary tapas style restaurant with an Italian influence.

                                                          Beautiful venue and setting, food quality wasn't as good previous visits (just wasn't the same quality),but prior to this food was always tasty. The cocktails are delish albeit overpriced. Staff were ttentive but one waiter was a little patronising. All in all,a pleasant experience but probably wouldn't rush back too soon.

                                                          Super Food, excellent service from our waitress, but unfortunately the barman served my cocktail in a warm glass, when I asked him to change it, first I was assured it was fine the way it was and then proceeded to pour it into another glass and hand it back to me! No offer of “Shall I make new one for you sir”, but our waitress came to the rescue and saved the day. But at €13 a cocktail I would expect more respect from the mixologist.

                                                          Service wasn’t good. The waitress couldn’t suggest as any cocktail, after we ask for a recommendation and went annoyed to the bartender when we asked for a drink that we couldn’t find on the menu. They also told us after two hours that we should order our last round and leave in 30mins. 0 for customer service… not again.

                                                          6 of us came here to eat before a performance at the Gaiety. Food was lovely, quiet big portions for tapas. I thought we would be under pressure because the booking was for 6.00 a and the show started at 7.30. Not so, the service was excellent and all food came very promptly.

                                                          When we first arrived our food and drinks orders were taken quickly and food arrived quickly and everyone enjoyed it. Our server kindly brought a sample of beer for one of our group to try before deciding what to order which was appreciated. After the food arrived though no one ever checked to see if we needed anything else, we had to go looking for staff any time we wanted to order more drinks. They started clearing plates while a couple of our party were still eating which I though was a bit rude, but then the rest of the dishes were left on the table for ages and we had to call someone over to clear them. Espresso martinis were not good so we didn’t try any other cocktails. Overall we enjoyed ourselves but service wasn’t great and we probably should have challenged the 12.5% service charge added to our bill because it did not reflect the service we received. But I will say that I have been here several times before and have always been happy with the service on previous occasions.

                                                          For a first time visitor it was badly signposted. Friendly staff but the volume of the music was too much, though the staff reduced it when requested. Dishes were adequate but the burger slider was a huge disappointment. Duck leg was best of the plates we had. The numbers of people passing through the restaurant was a distraction and spoiled the evening. Honestly couldn’t recommend the place for a relaxing evening or as a great dining experience. Leo

                                                          Lovely lunch lots of small dishes kind of tapas style good mix of meat/fish/veggie dishes. Didn't have dessert will have to go back for that. Service excellent and good spacing between tables so you have your privacy which we liked. Definitely recommend for casual tasty lunch and there are outside tables if preferred.
