Group of 30 booked, food was great and we were well looked after. We had a reasonable priced group menu however Ive eaten here before and can vouch for the early bird menu too - very good value! Good night all round

Four of us had brunch and the food was lovely. Only complain was that the pooched eggs very a little under done for 3 of us. But other wise very nice staff and the coffee was strong and very nice. Very happy to go back again!

It's supposed to be one of the best brunches in Dublin, and I can see why. Had the Eggs Benedict with shrimp. Delic'. And great coffee too. Enjoyed it so much that I reserved a table for brunch the next day, and continued the brunch love. :)

My second visit and it did not disappoint. We were using an IrishTimes 'Rewarding Times' voucher which is exceptional value, €69 for 3 courses for 2, including wine up to €30!! If you want the best steak ever - dine there!

Four of us ate dinner in the Whitefriars Grill and all emerged happy with the meal. We shared a selection of starters, the favourite being the aubergine dip. Steaks and hake followed and all were good, as were the sides (cauliflower, mushrooms, fries). A couple of creme brulees followed, which were good too. So all-in-all, this was a pretty solid...

The bartender at the Conrad Hilton suggested this place for us (2 adults, 21 & 19 year old kids) on our last night in Dublin. Sure glad he did! A cozy little place off the main drag. The food and service were excellent. We all had different meals and every one was as delicious as the next. The fondue dessert... More

Unfortunately I was not given a table even though at least 4 tables (each one of them for 2 people) were free. They were probably waiting for at least 2 people to sit but that is not the way to treat customers.

Hi Roberto, We are sorry that we had no availability when you arrived; we welcome walk-ins but we don't always have availability so reservations are recommended. You are incorrect in saying that there were tables available; these had been booked (if you had returned 10 mins later you would have seen this) and anyway we work on the principal that... More

Went for brunch on a Saturday. The food was perfectly proportioned and very tasty. The servers were attentive and prompt. I booked a table in advance because I heard it is difficult to get a table on short notice-- I am glad I did as the restaurant is not large and I saw people being told they would have a... More

We went there with my brothers to eat before going to the teeling distillery. It was the best restaurant where we ate during our week-end. All the staff was nice and able to advice good dishes. If you go to this restaurant you have to try a very nice dessert which is banoffi.

We came here after a conference with some colleagues (made a reservation!) and were not dissappointed. Nice atmosphere sitting in a cozy room with brick walls, friendly staff and good food and drink. I can recommend the 16oz steak, great taste, great quality. My tipp: you won't need any fries on the side, maybe a Caesar salad. We had two... More
