We arrived and ate but they decided to take €20 euros from my English card even though I was paying with cash.

It's a while since we last visited but they serve great food at affordable prices. Two starters and mains with a bottle of malbec for 110 euro in Temple Bar!! Perhaps I shouldn't post this review😀 and keep the place a secret.

However, when I got home I realised I was overcharged, I rang back expecting a simple apology and a refund of the overcharge - it was met, by the female manager, with I can’t talk right now I’ll ring you tomorrow and then the next day with half an hour of arguing over the overcharged bill. After which, the owner was supposed to call me back and issue a refund and never did, terrible customer service which was truly surprising since the customer service was fantastic in the actual restaurant. Would have loved to come back for more food but would not recommend at all for customer service

When we asked about it, it was just dismissed with no apology. Other people on different tables also said the same … I think it’s geared up for tourist who they know will probably never return. The fish tank tables have been glued over with a bit of poor quality workmanship aswell, so they are no more!!

Renovations where we were sitting and at one point we had water leaking on us from the ceiling. For the great finale they made mistakes on the check (added dishes we never ordered). This is the most expensive worst meal I had in Ireland.
