Fantastic service and good wine but the food was a let-down. Local fish main course was quite bland and beef was plentiful but lacked a graceful touch - tad overpriced for €115 for two courses

Located in the unfashionable end of Old Bakery Street, this excellent restaurant is well worth going out of the way for. Service and food are excellent. It sometimes lacks atmosphere for want of customers. It desereves better

We tried the restaurant for the first time and we really enjoyed every minute of our evening. Place is not very big but tables are situated far from each other so no one will disturb you. Food was amazing, atmosphere and service accomplished everything. Sure we will go again and we recommend the restaurant for people who like fine dining.

The food is good but nothing to be so ecstatic about. Sat there for about 3 hours waiting for our main course. Definitely we paid for a whole big fish and got just a slice of it in a big plate with no veg except a measly saucer of a potato concoction. Price added up to over €130 including dessert and an isis wine. Again, nothing to be esctatic about except an overpriced meal.

We arrived and were seated by 9.25pm, our starters served at 10.20pm, our mains at 11.20pm. Only 5 starters and 5 mains on menu and the 4 of us ordered the 2 items on each that the waiter recommended imagine how much longer it would have taken if we hadn't! The sides were a small dish of mashed potatoes and a dish with 7 pieces of onion. The waiter offered to add some veg to my dish as did not want the eel but it never materialised. We didn't order desert, it was too late. They couldn't even serve the 4 coffees together, they brought two cappuccinos and then served the 2 expressos 5 minuted later! Having a toilet in the corner is terrible also. A very very disappointing experience for an expensive meal. I then woke up with terrible heartburn at 3.30am , I do not recommend this restaurant at all. No vegetarian options for the main course either.
