Having landed here Friday afternoon we were all staving and ready for a beer or two. We came across this pub by chance and went in and we're quickly served some drinks and recommended some food they had. Rib eye steak burgers were the special. And they were huge and delicious. We all had then and they set us up... More

We used this pub several times after a long day walking the city as it was very close to our Hotel ... 12 Revay....... intimate little bar and well located as smack opposite the rear of the Basilica. The beers are well priced and you can get a large bowl of nuts for a very cheap price. Found the staff... More

Stopped here just after dumping our bags at the hotel and was in desperate need of a beer and some food. Initially I was a bit dubious about stopping here as it is almost on the doorstep of the basilica as they tend, in my experience to be poor quality and over priced. Luckily, Captain cooks was neither of the... More

Found this pub around the corner from our hotel - Hotel Moments. It really felt like a home from home pub. Good beer, friendly staff, nice atmosphere. Didn't eat there, had only called in for a couple of beers, but the pub grub looked amazing. We did however pop back later in the evening because we really liked the feel... More

Waiters sympathetic and nice place but everything else was wrong about it... they took our order even though the cook wasn't here so we had to wait 40 minutes.. but the real problem was the meat of the burger we ordered, which was supposed to be beef but really tasted like something else (not in a good way) and was...

Nice place for a drink. Great local bar atmosphere inside and a big seating area out front with heaters for chilly nights. There is a limited menu and when we were there the food was being brought in from the restaurant next door. Friendly staff, good prices and great beer.

The waiters are very friendly and well mannered. The quattrp formaggi pizza is a bit small but very tasty. I have been here about a dozen times, never left disappointed. Maybe the beer is a bit pricey but since you are in the inner city, it is totally acceptable.

A nice little pub with an outdoor seating area set back from the main road. The outdoor tables are covered by umbrellas and trees which are lit up, and there are lots of locals drinking especially after 8pm. Nice draught beer range, good selection of cocktails, but a limited choice of wines by the glass. Food menu mainly pizza and... More
