    Came here for my BIRTHDAY DINNER- restaurant was very nice. Food was pretty poor. Ordered the ribeye medium well. The steak was very under seasoned, even with the herb & garlic butter. I had to put a lot of salt on it to eat it. The mash was obviously powered mash potatoes- very hard, dry and cakey. The vegetables were hard. The best part of the meal was the brownie I had for dessert. It was worth a try but definitely not worth visiting a second time.

    Nice and interesting fish restaurant in Dublin center town. Food is really fresh and ambiance is smart casual, ranging from couple dinner, family or friend meeting occasions to business meetings. Definitely high end for Dublin while not being Michelin / poach. Nice revisited Irish specialties and really well presented fresh fish / catch of the day offerings, in a definite nice atmosphere.

    Booking a standard seating is not what you may expect to receive, offered a high table, stool seating which was a problem for one of our party, after some words eventually offered standard seating, after the frosty reception things changed for the better & the staff could not be more cordial & helpful.

    Wonderful dinner. My girlfriend and I bellied up at the bar and ordered the seafood tower. Mussels were amazing along with everything else. Our server, Mira, was outstanding and Jain was the best bartender we’ve ever had. Can’t recommend this place enough! #seafood #mira

    Great portion sizes, food is fresh and high quality. Oysters and scallop starters were brilliant as was the seabass main. We felt the muscles served with chips was a little disjointed, chips didn’t really go with the muscles and sauce and mash would’ve been better. We’ll definitely be visiting again!
