One of the best restaurants we dine in Dublin. High quality of steak, potatoes and salads. It would be a miss if you do not visit this place. Reasonable prices especially if you visit it during happy hour.

Went here on a Monday evening based on tripadvisor reviews. Wow! What a steak! Service friendly and efficient. Wine prices reasonable, and the beef cannot be beat! Best ribeye i have had in a long time, and the oyster appetizer was fabulous also!
