I went here with my partner on Sat 25th March, we arrived at 6:45 and yes it was busy, but really no excuse for what unfolded, and to add to my disappointment I had my first date here with my partner 4 years ago around this time, so it was like an anniversary return visit. Well we were left unattended...

We tried Fish, the new restaurant in the refurbished Twelfth Lock Hotel, on the fanciful named Castleknock Marina. We booked for 8 and were promptly taken to our table. It's fair to say I was already in good mood as Ireland had just beaten a England in Aviva, taking the wheels of the Chariot. We were warmly welcomed and the...

Whilst the staff were very friendly, service prompt and food nice it just didn't hit any high notes. This was a favourite before it closed. A tad pricey for the food. Excellent location for sunny days.

This was our first visit to the fish restaurant in The 12th Lock. There were 6 Mains, 3 were fish but the Hake wasn't available! The place is new with minimalist decor and is spotless. There's a full bar in the restaurant itself. The fishcake starter and cod main were good. What is described on the menu as Apple Crumble...

Used to be a regular here but since it's reopening it hasn't been good. The staff don't seem to have good knowledge of the menus or drinks available and there's very little chat with them! The menu options in the bar aren't great and even the simplest of dishes the chefs can't seem to get right!! Last time I was...

The food is just okay, as it should be in the restaurant. Nothing more and nothing less. Great deal with the Menupages voucher. I have ordered Salmon Teriyaki and my partner ordered the Lamb Shank. His dish was very good, however mine was just average. Great atmosphere in the restaurant. Staff is very friendly.
