DO NOT GO HERE We were walking around and chose to dine here for lunch. Needed to wait for tables to get cleaned off, no biggie. We were seated and waited another 10-15 min for a server to come over. He was disinterested and aloof....More

Lovely helpful staff but the noise from the street is constant. Really hard to sleep because there are party animals and cars and sirens. You can't close the windows because there is no aircon and the windows don't stop the noise. However earplugs are provided!...More

Was excited to stop at a place where James Joyce was honored but very disappointed. No service/ finally received a menu/ Food menu really disappointing. No staff available. Finally decided to leave/ Don't take the time/ evidently this restaurant needs staff.
