Great food, especially the gourmet burger which I go for everytime...always tastes as good! Jazz on Sundays is great and creates lovely ambience.

This was my favourite place in Dublin 20 years ago - and a return visit confirmed that it still is. It's slightly away from the main drag of Temple Bar - which suits me. Despite visiting on the night of the fire, and having to...More
