We celebrated our 38th Wedding Anniversary on a trip to Dublin in April 14 with friends. It was a fantastic evening of good food, well presented and in a beautiful setting, (it was like being in a small private dinning room). As you can see from the photos the fresh fish choice was fantastic and the desert trolley was a delight. The service was almost one to one without being over the top. It was good value for money considering the quality of the food and its presentation.

You feel like you are back in time at the Lobster Pot. This is a very fine restaurant and worth every penny. Loved it. Probably my favorite restaurant in Dublin.

This is a small restaurant in Ballsbridge serving mainly fish and it is great. The staff are charming and more importantly the food is excellent. It starts by you picking your fish from a tray of fresh options and it goes from there. The meal finished off with some of the best deserts I've had. It's not cheap, but, definitely worth it. It was so good we went twice!

A trip to Dublin will be made memorable if you eat here.
This small restaurant serves a wide range of superbly cooked and presented seafood, as well as
traditional meat and game.
Experienced attentive staff, led by Tommy and Gary give unobtrusive service and show great patience.
This is a real gem, and for seafood lovers the lobster is a must.
Tucked away up a flight of stairs, this restaurant brings to life the saying that a good place is hard to find!
We enjoyed a lovely dinner here, and felt that the experience was worth every cent.
Can't wait to return...

This must be one of the best fish restaurants anywhere, wonderful atmosphere, beautiful tables with white linen and fine cutlery. We opted for the early dining menu (6pm - 7.30pm) choice of two courses for 23.95 euros, the fresh fish was presented on a large salver by our very charismatic waiter Michael who identified each fish and gave us choices on the different ways they could be prepared. We had mussels followed by salmon and sea trout all cooked to perfection accompanied by fresh leeks in a cheese sauce, carrots and celery and beautiful sautéd potatoes. Will we return? You bet we will!!!
