Nice tapas restaurant with a wide range of tapas, and lovely sangria. It doesn't take reservations so you just have to hope there's a free table when you arrive. Staff are always very attentive and friendly. Favourite Temple bar restaurant by far!

We got seated on the terrace, which was very nice and a bit quieter than the inside. Would also recommend trying... More

This has been our go to for years. We havent been in a long time due to a dissapointing last visit. Served freezing cold chicken wings we barely got an apology and were charged for the reheated bowl of wings which were burnt to a crisp. The same bowl was returned to the fryer only to face a grim scald.... More

Nice place to hangout. Good food, good music and lot's of different beers to taste. Nice ambiance, reasonable prices, average service. The place itself is very nice and try to get a window table.

We visited twice over the one weekend last time we were in Dublin. We really love this restaurant. Staff are friendly, extremely efficient and the food is fabulous. Great wines too. They also do a sample Port with chocolate for dessert - best dessert ever.

Visited Port House Pintxo with my mid-twenties daughter in January, then came back again with my husband in February, both times a wonderful experience. Welcoming staff, great selection of tapas and all were yummy. Tried a few wines by the glass, very nice. The ambience is the best in Dublin, romantic yet lively with many couples and friends.

We hadn't planned to go here but were made very welcome even though we had to be squeezed in between other diners who had booked but we weren't hurried and the food was bought to us promptly.
