  • This place is so cozy/funky. Staff is very nice and food is so yummy! Cute for a meeting spot with your girls for a cuppa
  • By far and away the best late night spot in Dublin!!! Something for everyone. They also have great food.
  • Another one of my favorite places in Dublin. Great for evening meet ups they make really good cocktails. They have no menu so it's up to you to make up what drink you want (cocktails) and prices are decent
  • Trendy upmarket bar which can get very busy at weekends. Good selection of drinks and cocktails can be a bit pricey but worth a visit.
  • Went here after the mini marathon to get some food. We were given the wrong menu and were told we only had a choice of four items. The waiter apologised but blamed it on lack of communication from the kitchen and didn't seem to know what was happening. The food we got was good value, but I wanted a more substantial meal. We ordered churros for dessert and they came with chocolate dipping sauce. The churros were nice but the chocolate sauce had an overwhelming orange flavour. The moment we had finished our meal (but not our drinks), we were asked to pay up and leave. Over all it was a bad experience.
