Thought we would pop in on a Friday evening for something cheap and cheerful. I didn't feel it was either. The waiters were very friendly, but zipping around the place as if under staffed and we were fogotten about. We shared a Garlic Mozza Panuzzo and Suzi+ pizza, both had too much cheese, but were very reasonably priced for Dublin city. My Irish craft cider however was not reasonably priced at €7.25. Very expensive. They forgot about the crust dip which is not the end of the world, but I couldn't get anyone attention to ask them for it and nobody came over to see how we were once the food arrive. I think what bugs me most about this place is the fact that nothing has been done to the decor since it use to be a Chineese Restaurant. The decor hasn't changed except the tables and chairs and for a pizza restaurant its very dark inside, dull and drab with not much atmosphere. I can't see myself coming back, there are better places to go on Dame street.

Last week, a large group of us had the pleasure of celebrating a birthday at Skinflint. The staff were so friendly and obliging in lighting candles on a cake we brought. Everyone who had pizza were happy campers. The one person who ordered a salad (which was extremely oily/pesto-y) was disappointed. Moral of the story is always get the pizza I suppose! We stayed quite late and the staff didn't bat an eyelid - tres sound. Will be back for the fab pizza and chill ambiance!

Food was nice but the service is terrible. We have been welcomed by two grumpy waitresses, absolutely not nice. Every time we were asking for something, they seemed really annoyed. At the end, we asked if she could split the bill by two, she asked "yeah, how much?". I eventually ask to split equally. She answered again "Yeah, how much?". I had to take my phone to do it myself (yes, I am terrible in mathematics...), but the fact is... This is not my job! I have been waitress myself and never I would ask that to my customers! Smile and being polite cost nothing and make everything easier for everybody. Even if the food is good, I will never come back there as my experience has been completely destroyed by the staff. I go to the restaurant to relax, and not leave it more stressed than when I entered.

Skinflint is a great value, pizza/meatball restaurant, in the centre of town. The atmosphere is great, using old front-doors as tables and they even have a hipster DJ on the weekend (like Jo Burger). The proximity to Temple Bar is great, if you like the area for some beers and music but it does mean that the restaurant can be prone to stag/hen nights. Personally I thought it was funny to watch a bride-to-be doing press ups whilst I munched on my pizza but many others didn't quite see the 'free' entertainment value. My only gripe is the wine list contains just four wines (2 house & 2 others). But I highly recommend the place and we'll be returning again.

A gem of a restaurant for pizza lovers who like a foodie twist on their food! This place is decorated in the hipster style typical of Joe Macken's restaurants, and of course the waiting staff are just as trendy- although, in my experience, they have all been very friendly, informed and eager to help customers. The pizza toppings are really creative and delicious- I recommend the Suzie! Some great lunch deals also, with any pizza and lemonade for ten euro, and two for one for Trinity students. Another triumph for Joe Macken and a firm lunchtime favourite of mine!

This is such a great restaurant and is often forgotten about I think. The pizzas are incredible, such good value for money and really tasty. The meatballs are also unbelievable although I'm not sure if they still do them, I haven't eaten them in a while. I'm not really into sharing tables, but generally I visit during quiet times so I can avoid that. They have great lunch specials also! So cheap.

Very different way to serve pizza.And it is good one. Pizza with leeks was delicious and was enough for me and my boyfriend. Great lemonade was served in jars (great idea!). Interior design is very interesting, kind of industrial mixed with vintage. We will be back for sure.

Quite possibly the worst pizza I have ever eaten. I recently paid a visit to SkinFlint, I was a little bit apprehensive to begin with, having recently paid a visit to their sister restaurant 'Bear' and being sorely disappointed, however as I am a big fan of their other restaurant 'Jo' Burger' I thought I would give it a try. Alas from the moment I sat down and read the menu I knew I was in for a disappointment, Pizza is a classic dish and although I am all for innovation and creativity, there are some things that simply do not belong on one, raisins being a perfect example. After much deliberation I finally settled on the Chorizo and pecorino pizza, which once it arrived was an embarrassment of a dish, what I received was not a pizza in any traditional sense, more like an anaemic flat bread with very little toppings which had hardly been cooked. My friend ordered a peach, red onion and blue cheese 'pizza' which was completely dry. I find it quite annoying when restaurants like this attempt to re-invent the wheel and end up making a square shaped wheel that doesn’t work rather than focusing on making an excellent one, it’s all well and good putting unusual combinations on pizzas but if they don’t work, or cannot be executed well then why bother. The 'SkinFlint' in the name can only refer to their generosity with toppings as for what you get there is nothing cheap about this place. Save your money and find a good Italian pizzeria that strives to prepare pizzas with care.

This was my first time eating here, and having been less than pleased with sister-restaurant Crackbird (where the service was terrible), I was a little dubious when I walked in. I was pleasantly surprised - the pizzas were tasty, and the girl serving us was helpful. I chose the Susie, which had minced chorizo and pink peppercorns. My friends chose the Lil (blue cheese, pear, pickled onion) and the Grainne (bacon, cerleriac, pecorino) - everyone enjoyed their meal. The pizzas have a very thin base and are oblong; one is more than enough for your main. I even took a few slices home in a brown bag. We also got wine and enormous jars of lemonade. Overall this place is 4 stars: the concept may be a little gimmicky, but the atmosphere was cosy, the food was straight-forward and tasty, and it's good value for money. The waitress even let us pay separately (which I know servers hate to do!) and we were the last people in the restaurant.

Awesome restaurant on the value for money side of things, for somewhere with a tiny kitchen they are doing something special. The ribs are delicious, pizzas are awesome really well thought out toppings that work really great together. The music is just outrageously good which makes the atmosphere great. It's also as cheap as chips.

Another 5/5. Food was great and very reasonable. We had the tapenade and hummus to start, and the portion size was very generous. The pizzas are a good size and very tasty, with lots of unusual combinations. Also bonus points for bringing water to the table without being asked, especially given it was the hottest day of the year.

I went to SkinFlint to celebrate my birthday with 2 of my friends on a wed night. They had not been there before. I had been once and really enjoyed it. The atmosphere was lovely. Very relaxed. The pizzas were great. The shape of them makes them very easy to share. I had one with pulled pork and fennel, it was the days special and fantastic. I liked the fact they stock artisan beer and really enjoyed the 8C beer. The chilli honey is a great topping on the pizzas. The staff were very friendly and not too over powering. It costs a little more then other pizza places but is a great place for food. The fact it’s hidden makes it quiet special. Id recommend it and def go back for the innovative pizza toppings.
