It’s a great traditional and modern Irish cuisine. The food and desserts were delicious. My steak was perfectly cooked, and the flavor was delicious. Also, taste their signature pancakes!

Being strangers/visitors in town we had difficulty finding Boxty. With help from locals, we eventually found and entered Boxty. Service was very good and the food was equally good. Well worth trying.

Hello Danielle, we usually recommend reservations for large groups, but if it is just two people it is easier to get a table at lunch time.
