I was a bit upset I made my reservation for the restaurant, I specified that in my booking, but I was placed at the pub. Everything was great, it wasn't that bad of course, but I would have liked to have my table in the restaurant, where I booked it.

Went in on wednesday evening with my wife and all I can say is the food was shocking. I had a steak sandwich I think for around 16 or 17 euro. When I first cut the steak it did not look right. I tasted it and there was definitly something wrong. I smelled it and it did not seem right. This was awful food. The chips where good!!..I fear for our irish gathering if this is what is being dished out. The mgr had the cheek then to say it was fresh that morning. I;ve been eating and cooking steak a lifetime and I can tell you this was off. Never ever be back. My one regret is I did not take a piece of this so called meat and send it to Bord Bia. Define health hazzard

Visited here with a party of 11 to celebrate a 60th birthday. We looked at the menu and in the end we all decided to go for the set 3 course for €17.95. There was a steak option with a €6 supplement and everyone of us went for that menu. The starters were excellent and everybody decided to have the steak. All perfectly cooked and presented with a side of chips and a little bowl of pepper sauce. The only other thing on the plate was a sprig of parsley!!!! The food was very good but what would have been wrong with say a spoon of sauted onions and mushrooms, that would have taken the meal from good to great. The cost for that would probably have been €0.15 per plate and would have added the "wow" factor to the meal. Consider that folks PLEASE. That said the staff were great and very attentive, well done to them

Had visitors from abroad and on their last night in Dublin they wanted to dine somewhere in Temple Bar. The Quays is in the centre of it all and great for tourists. The music is your standard irish trad, the place is made to look like an old fashioned pub. The service is friendly and superefficient, it appeared to me as if great effort had been put in to training the staff, to all have a standard norm of service, to be polite, friendly but not too familiar, to know the menu and be able to get people to order quickly eat quickly and get out quickly so they can get more people in!!! Bit conveyor belt like.... I had the chicken burger, my guests had the stew, the fish and chips and the mussels and seafood chowder. My cajun chicken burger was very tasty. I also had some of the stew and it was delicious. Also tried mussel, also very good. We were a tad upset by 10% service charge added on top of the food that was dear to start with, I didn't see this extra charge mentioned anywhere on the menu, nor explained to us by the staff. But I will probably return here another time, with another set of visitors.

Visited Quays for the first time yesterday and was very impressed.. Very friendly staff and lovely warm relaxed atmosphere helped by the traditional Irish music playing in the background. We had the chicken wings to share for starters (plenty for 2) and they were so tasty!! We both ordered Surf n Turf for mains, which came with chips and a nice garlic/butter drizzle and sun dried tomatoes. Both the red and white house wines were excellent and the profitteroles were perfectly light after such a big main course. I would highly recommend a visit to Quays for an atmospheric meal in the heart of Dublin City.

I went to the restaurant on New Years Day with my boyfriend we just stumbled across it. The staff were so friendly and efficient even though it was really busy. We both had the chicken wings to start which were just beautiful. I had the cottage pie which was melt in the mouth I would have loved to finish it but it was just way too big a portion for me. The boyfriend had Stirloin steak which he said was melt in the mouth cooked exactly as he ordered. I would definately come back either with him or with my family so they can experience the wonderful atmosphere and food.

Have had lunch here a few times, always having their Slow Cooked Beef & Guinness Stew. It is beautiful. The service is good and the food is excellent value. My only dislike is the background music, but it does not stop me from going there. I will be back.

Went here with partner & friend, we had bangers and mash, steak and burger, The steak was aboloutely lovely, so tender and although it didn't come with any sauce, it didn't need it as it was so juicy. Good comments also about the bangers and the burger! Only things were the price of guinness is atrocious in there (€5,50 a pint!!!!), my friend got the wrong dish served @ first, and we were charged full price for one dish @ the end when it should have been the special lunch price.

I went here with my partner on a sunday evening. The restaurant was quiet but there were a few tables. The staff were very pleasant and served us without any delay. We ordered from the main menu from which there was a good selection of food to choose from. We shared the potato skins to start. There were four potato skins on the plate and it was enough to share between between two adults. My partner had the burger for main course which was a big portion but was delicious all the same. I had the chicken wings. They were tasty but i wouldnt order them again for a main course. We did not have dessert but we had drinks to the table which included a bottle of wine. The overall cost of the meal was reasonable and the portions we got were plentiful. I would go back there again.

Got a Sunday lunch time special, meal was excellent value. Atmosphere is cosy and food is just ok, normal pub grub. I wouldnt want to be paying the normal price for it however, not worth that
