Me and my husband went to this restaurant for our second anniversary and we had a lovely time.
The staff was absolutely flawless and the food was amazing.

It was a lovely experience

Two of us sat down for the 8 course tasting menu with the wine accompaniment last night. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening and most especially the food. Each dish was really amazing. I think, and I can't believe I get to type this, the lobster tail & rubarb was my favorite. It's a long way from lobster tail I was raised.

All the staff were amiable and professional, but particular kudos to our sommelier, Youna, who kept our glasses fresh with amazing wines all night (I counted 11 different wine pairings I think). We were a couple of sheets to the wind at the end. Props also to to Stefan, for his hospitality and for his indulgence of our request for the final course. Just a fantastic experience, and I still have a smile on my face as a result.

Pricey for sure, but cheaper than therapy.

Really enjoyed a festive lunch here. I think the price increases dramatically for December so if you can go another time you might save money. Food was absolutely delicious, the fish cooked perfectly. Just divine! Everything from the amouse bouche to the petit fours was perfect. The only negative was the mash which tasted yummy was a tad on the cold side, I love my mash to be piping hot. Definitely worth a visit!

We ate dinner at this classy place.I loved the minimalistic retro decor. Service was perfect and not too pretentious. Food was artisan like. Great taste. I particularly enjoyed Asetra Caviar. The Black Sole I ordered for main was a bit tasteless though. Overall I really enjoyed the dinner and highly recommend this experience to anyone.

"21st celebration lunch"
Wonderful food and ambience. I had the John Dory which was delicious. Vegetarian option was great also. Thank you to all the staff for making us so welcome and making it such a special occasion for Lara. Every course was served with a smile and panache. The level of service combined with delicious food made it as special as we wished for.

"Amazing Experience"
Even if you only do it once you must try this restaurant from start to finish you really felt special & the food was amazing.

We had the Chef's Surprise 4 Course Taster so until it was served you did not know what you were getting even the wine waiters did not let on what you the dish was when pouring the wine. Each element of every dish was excellent & all worked well together. We had turbot for the fish course, something not had for years, beautifully cooked & tasted great but the star of all the meal was the mash potatoes served with the lamb fillet. The mash is the signature dish of the restaurant & think they said it was 85% butter & wow the best mash ever & doubt if will ever be beaten.

The staff were very friendly & helpful always keeping an eye on you but not sitting on your shoulder.

This was a truly memorable lunch for all the right reasons & would not hesitate in returning when next in Dublin.
