“Raising the bar!”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

Some people might be put off by the location of this very fine restaurant over one of Dublin's most popular bars, but this venue is certainly not about 'bar food'. From the excellent fish 'smokies' starter to the steaks and fish of the day enjoyed by our group, the verdict was that this was an exceptional meal, representing excellent value. The staff were very welcoming, friendly and efficient. Highly recommended, as was our night cap in the bar downstairs !!!

“Excellent meal”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

We had a early bird menu on friday evening. We didn't have a table booked beforehand but lovely staff arranged us a table. The food was very good, tasty and fresh. Service was good and the atmosphere nice. One of the best meals in Dublin!

“Food was outstanding, Staff a bit "Ho Hum"...”
Reviewed 24 April 2014 via mobile

After reading all the wonderful reviews of this restaurant we had to try It out during our time in Dublin. The restaurant is set out a bit far from the center, but the food is well worth the extended walk. The food is delicious and wonderfully prepared - we found the staff to be a bit "Ho Hum" the evening we were there... We weren't quite sure if it was because we were tourists or if they were perhaps just having a sour day - which ever the reason, we felt at times a bit uncomfortable and unwelcome. However, that being said - I would absolutely give it a second go and the food was outstanding!

“Excellent....”
Reviewed 20 April 2014 via mobile

Joined some friends in the Sussex for dinner recently. Really good all round experience. Great ambience, very attentive & welcoming staff. The food was superb & exceeded all expectations. Good selection of starters enjoyed by all. Fillet steak & hake dish were excellent, cooked to perfection. Make sure you leave some room for the lemon posset. Always looking for that "must place to go" - we have found it! Looking forward to our next visit. GoSam!
