“Solid establishment but food misses wow factor”
Reviewed 2 August 2014 via mobile

We found table here at short notice and were warmly greeted by the hostess. The tables inside are pretty close to each other and the restaurant is fairly noisy. The waiter was excellent though and offered to heat my plate when I had to go outside for phone call. The beetroot goats cheese starter was excellent. The steak was ok but not the best I have ever had. It was a little undercooked despite being very clear with my request. Good wine list. Price a bit high for what's on offer. Might try other steakhouse next time I need protein overload. Overall good restaurant though.

“Great Steak. Good Service. Too noisy.”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

Meal booked for a Wednesday evening at 7pm and the restaurant was already very busy with a "great" atmosphere. It didn't feel like the atmosphere of a fine dining establishment as it was very noisy for simple table chat. Service was very good and 4x starters ordered. I had prawn cocktail which was good but worth €14.50 ? All four had various steaksI which were beautifully cooked and perfect. Not sure about the (5 ?) steak chips served with it though. Personally I would have preferred frites (which I should have ordered as a side replacement) but that's a personal choice. We also had 4x desserts (2x choc tarts and 2x Eton Mess). I had the chic tart which was lovely but also tried the Eton Mess - to die for. It's not cheap but as someone else footed the bill who's complaining !!

“Great restaurant”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

This well established restaurant in Dublin is a great place to eat. I have no hessitation in recommending this restaurant, with comfortable souroundings, great food, good wine selection, good service and especially the reasonable prices not normally associated with a restaurant of such high calibre.
