Food and drink

Seafood heaven - oysters, lobster, langoustine, prawns, Dingle Bay crab, mussels.... and excellent beef and venison dishes for the boys.

Recommended dishes

Lobster or oysters are the stand out dishes for many. The organic chicken is highly rated. 

Ambience

It's smart and stylish and the Maitre D’ is a charismatic character who breezes through to fuss over regulars a flamboyant way – he’s one of the star attractions.

Service

The formal service is balanced by the intimate setting.

Location

It's central, opposite St Stephen’s Green, just around the corner from Grafton Street.

Price advice

The lunch or pre-theatre menu (Monday-Thursday 5.30-6.15pm) offers brilliant value at 20 euros for two courses or 25 euros for three. At the moment, there's a competitive dinner offer of three courses for 39euros.

Tables to book

Request tables by the window for views of Stephen's Green or if it's a more relaxed affair, head to the oyster bar at the back. There's a room upstairs for private dining.
