This place was so hard to find. The front desk clerk at our hotel recommended it to me and my cousin so we went there for dinner. We got the Brussels traditional dish and it was just ok. It was recommended by the waiter. The waiter was very nice and the place was very clean. It was a great experience.

We picked this place based on TripAdvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. Ordered tapas...really good. Our waiter Melvin was really nice and didn't rush us from our table. The pasta dish was amazing.

Wish we'd come sooner! Good prices, very chilled atmosphere, lovely food. Had the sausage and Stoemp which was really tasty and good quality. Slightly off the beaten tourist track, which was fine by us and very much needed after a hard day hitting the museum trail. We weren't hurried to finish and I could have sat there for a lot... More

My boyfriend and I visited Publico for a spot of late lunch, early dinner in December, just before new years' eve. It wasn't too busy, but there were a few people in there. We walked in and the waiter/bartender said we could sit anywhere. He wasn't the smiliest of people, but he was good enough. We asked for beer recommendations,... More

If you are a super happy group having fun joking and fooling around with the service staff you are assured free drinks or shots. The food is excellent. If you are vegetarian just look at the menu and make whatever request you feel like. Their excellent chef will take care of the rest

The restaurant was recommended by the concierge at our hotel and was definitely worth the walk in the cold. Just a few minutes from our hotel. The food was very good, the service even better. The prices were fair and had a good atmosphere.

I had a birthday celebration here and I have to say, it was really fantastic. The food was excellent as was the service and good value for money. The staff were brilliant and we had a wonderful night singing and dancing which was accommodated by staff. This restaurant made my night really memorable and worth the trip Dublin.

The service was also outstanding- our servers Melvin and Sam took great care of us while also assisting the entire restaurant just the two of them on a busy Friday! Very impressive for... More
