We were a party of five, outdoors. The staff were excellent especially considering the difficulty of working in masks.
The food was also excellent, both starters and mains.
I will certainly re-visit and well done to the staff!

Book a table for 2. We were put in the corner beside the plants which were very much on top of me. Food looked nice. I ordered pizza which I didn't think was great. We had a side of home fries which were very dry and felt like they were heated in a microwave. They were very soggy. Overall wasn't a fan of the food. The cocktails were very nice but the ambiance was very noisy and tables very close together so a bit uncomfortable

We had a lovely meal here but the service was very slow, our pre-dinner drinks took 35 minutes to arrive and they came after the starters. Whilst we appreciate that it is a learning curve for everyone at the moment, this made for a very rushed dining experience as we had to vacate out table for the next sitting.

Terrible experience. Menu wasn’t what we expected or hoped for from a press up facility of repute. We have been regulars everywhere from Sophie’s to Mackenzies and everywhere in between. Service was really poor. Waitress seemed so unhappy to be working. Added to this the awnings were closed on a beautiful morning in Dublin. Not much point in going to a rooftop restaurant in the sunshine if that were the case. The plants beside us were littered with spiders and cobwebs and it’s difficult to comprehend how bad this was. Food was ok. Just about Normal pub grub fare and to add salt to the wound of disappointment, there was an obnoxious, rude individual seated in a party of two who was so loud we could hear him from the other side of the restaurant. All in all, an absolutely terrible experience of one of press ups pin up
Venues. So so poor. So disappointing

Love the location and the cocktails are very nice.
It took nearly an hour and physically getting up to get a waiter to come and take our order of another drink and we asked 3 times for the desert menu.
Anytime we wanted something it took a lot of effort to get the waiters attention. I think it’s usually the norm for the waiter to check in every now and then.
Also, there were a few younger groups (and i am not old) that were very loud and yelling across the bar to one another. A reminder to them that there were other diners there wouldn’t have gone amiss.
