The outdoor area is nice but it is in a car park. There's only one unisex toilet. However, they did let us stay there for over 4 hours and continue to order drinks which was great and the staff were very helpful and friendly.

Unfortunately, social distancing guidelines and public health advice restrict our ability to create the ideal dining room atmosphere. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your food and we may have mistakenly not given you bread, but we do our best to ensure at the various check-back stages of your meal, that everything is satisfactory, maybe if you had made us aware of our shortcomings we may have been in a position to rectify them.

The Pathé in the Tapas platter was frozen, the vegan burger overcooked and the warm chicken and bacon salad came cold. The berries crumble was good.

The waiter misunderstood my order and didn’t bring everything so I had to wait until my friends were finished with their food to get mine. I ordered the grilled mushroom and he told me it came with roasted baby potatoes but he only brought 3 plain grilled mushrooms. The food was bad altogether. Salad was incredibly oily, the pizza was tasteless - I had to put ketchup and salt on it in order for it to be edible. The staff wasn’t very professional either, and we couldn’t pay the check separately. Will not eat there again.

I am sorry you did not enjoy your recent experience, unfortunately due to the stop/start nature of the restrictions in Dec we felt it would be unfair to bring back our full staff for such short bursts & instead decided we would cope with the increased numbers of customers using the existing team. I am sorry if our service was not up to our usual standard. If you contact me I would be delighted to be afforded the opportunity to remedy this. Yvonne PH 018746949

We are experiencing some demand at peak times but not enough steady demand to take back more of our staff. We are limiting numbers and our team is working as hard as we can & we hope that our customers understand. We hope to return to normal service soon. Thank you for visiting us & we hope to see you again. Thanks again Yvonne O'Keeffe General Manager

In the evening all guests are in the Castle Vaults bar downstairs. Lively evening with an Irish ballad singer. Food was of good pub grub standard with hearty portions. Not quite what we expected when we booked but a good evening!

The food was good, no complaints there but the service was abysmal, so slow we had to forgo our dessert so we could get to the theatre. Also the table was not set properly, no side plates, I asked for them and they gave us saucers. Some of the cutlery on the table was dirty and I had to ask for some when my main course arrived, had to ask for water. Also the waiter very kindly said the gin & tonic my daughter ordered would be free as it was her birthday but when I got home I checked the bill I’d been charged! We will not return!

Myself and a friend enjoyed the pretheatre dinner menu which was delicious and generous in portion size. Wish we had had more time! Service was friendly and efficient and we received a warm welcome. Lovely dining area. Looking forward to the next time.

I was very surprised that it's more like a drop in cafe/restaurant. We waited to be seated and had to ask someone to look after us. The restaurant was empty bar 1 or 2 other tables. After 10 mins we had to ask for menus. We got 3 menus for 7 people. After taking the food order, we had to wait and no one came back to give drinks menus or take order for drinks. It's not a full bar. Minerals are served in plastic bottles with no glass! The food was ok, chicken wings are served whole and not broken in half as you'd normally see in a restaurant. Value for money is good but given the service we won't be returning. It's unfortunate as I think this place has a lot of potential. We were seated upstairs and the waiter told us afterwards that there is a restaurant downstairs but no one asked when we arrived which one we had booked! He said that upstairs is the main one so they would assume that we wanted there. Downstairs is mostly for hotel guests.

We were hoping to have lunch but only brunch was on the menu until 3pm which didnt really suit as we would have prefered lunch. However the lovely girl did suggest that we could see the 3pm menu, which we did, but as we were under time restraints we went for the brunch menu, which was very nice. There was a great ambience with afternoin tea groups. The staff were really warm and welcoming. Food lovely.

I will pass the feedback to our Restaurant Manager about the menus and the availability. We are hoping to offer more for our theatre goers - especially now that there will be two matinees (Wed/Saturday) going forward. We adjusted our All Day menu recently and hope to make additional changes to our brunch and pre-theatre to accommodate more guests. We hope you'll visit again. Many thanks,

Our Old Music Shop Restaurant is indeed part of the Castle Hotel, Dublin. As the restaurant is part of an extensive and old Georgian building our kitchen is located on the lower ground floor and we are proud that our chefs prepare food freshly daily. We do not use off-site kitchens. We can only apologise for the ambience on that day you visited but are delighted you found the staff friendly. We appreciate all feedback. Thank you once again. Fijne dag!

Very friendly staff but service a little slow. We were going to The Gate theatre so had to actually leave our coffee without drinking it as ran out of time. Perfect location for pre theatre and will definitely be back.

We let you down on your recent visit the restaurant before the Gate Theatre. We have been working on training the team to identify customers that are having pre-theatre or timely brunches that are heading to the nearby shows at the Gate, Abbey and O'Reilly Theatres so that we can deliver a prompt service. We hope we've remedied this and that we can look forward to welcoming you again soon.

There was a perfect balance between sandwiches and cakes, a classic afternoon tea. The service was excellent with very friendly staff. It's an old fashioned place so it felt very authentic - such a lovely homely atmosphere made it a break from hectic Dublin life. This is a little haven right in the city centre.

The standard of ingredients and the quality of preparation was very surprisingly good. The service was warm, very attentive and at the same time, unobtrusive. I will certainly put this place on my map of places to go for dinner dates with friends.

The staff is kind and available, the food is good, just a bit pricey. Portions are decent as well. We went there for a Sunday brunch, upon reservation and we found a table waiting for us :) We ordered two poached eggs on sourdough bread, sided with mixed salad, creamy potatoes and avocado - while daughter ordered pancakes with nutella, they came with a small pot of fruit salad and maple syrup, and just then they added 2 small pots of nutella. They tasted good but the plate prep wasn't great, for the price they could put the nutella in a small pot not in their original small packaging, decoration and how food is presented (depending on the price) it's also important. We also got two cappuccinos, which were tasty and big :-) Overall a pleasant experience, and we will come back when in the area to give it another try - maybe lunch or dinner. Thanks for having us!
