“Fantastic Atmosphere.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2013 via mobile

I have eaten here several times and enjoyed it every time.
There is always a fantastic atmosphere there.
The food comes in small (8euro) or large (12euro) portions of tapas.
4 or 5 small tapas portions would be lots of food for 2 people sharing.

There is a huge selection of beers and wines available also.

The market bar is ideally located close to several good bars.
The service is excellent, the staff are very friendly
I would definitely eat there again.

“Outstanding food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2013

Firstly the service is really good. Friendly attentive staff who are always smiling and happy to help.
But the food. Oh my lord. The small plates of tapas are huge, So much so the table next to us hadnt touched their bravas and gave it to us and we offered to pay for it so the lovely waiter took it off both our bills! Loads of staff and the atmosphere is great. Highly recommend it.

“loved it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2013

loved this place. food was fantastic & even though there was a queue and a wait time for a table. We had theater tickets and couldnt really wait that long for a table & we informed the very friendly manager of this. He didnt promise anything but asked us to sit by the bar and have a drink and he would see what he could do. 30 mins later we were ordering! We ordered 5 tapas each & the waitress ( again lovely & really friendly ) advised that the portions were generous and that 3 per person would suffice. So this was what we did & she was right. We were stuffed. Plenty of food and 2 bottles of house red cam in very reasonable for the quality of food and service. about E85 i would highly recommend this restaurant. Great atmosphere & we had a great meal. Will be back on my next visit to Dublin.
