Nice ambience, quite noisy but can still have a conversation if you're sitting at the counter. Interesting food choices. Pretty good selection for vegetarians. Big choice of interesting cocktails. Slightly pricey as the portions are very small but worth it for a special occasion.

An excellent eating experience, I have been to both restaurant and tapas bar.
Tapas is not the real experience as it more seated, order food focused but the food quality was excellent.
Noise levels way to high though.

Did not match the standard of our last visit. We felt rushed and thought the servers cleared away the plates etc far to quickly. on one occasion we had to tell the server it wasn't finished and not to take it aways,they apologised. The food as ever was fine. Didn't stay for after meal drinks. Will give the restaurant a go next time in Dublin.

Food and service was fantastic. We sat at the counter and the chef was talking to us when we had questions on what food he was preparing. Two servers gave us some recommendations on what to order and they did not disappoint. The mushrooms were amazing.

The food was good, the wine was nice. The table service was slightly above average but don’t expect your table to be ready at the time you booked it... The ambiance in the tapas bar is lively and fine for a friendly get together but wouldn’t recommend for those of harder hearing and not sure it would suit a first date.

Would I recommend it to a friend - maybe and maybe not. The food was interesting, with the cod branded the standout dish. For a number of dishes, the portions were just too small, particularly the beef carpaccio. The service was haphazard with huge delays in two of our four cocktails at the start. Also, the waiters never seemed quite sure whether we had been served particular dishes or not. The atmosphere was nice and buzzy, although at times quite loud. I'd probably go back again, albeit with lowered expectations but I would hesitate to recommend it to anyone.
