I have been to Odessa many time with friends for their brunch on the weekend, I would highly recommend it. It's a bit pricy compared to other places around the city but the portions are huge & the food is so good.

Lovely food and really nice wait staff. However restaurant was very empty at 2pm on a Saturday this was surprising, and it only emptied during our stay so it was a bit dead

Ariived into a dark and dreary dining room upstairs with heavy drapes on the windows (totally unnecessary and if taken down would brighten the room). 3 rows of tables canteen style! Had a €50 deal 3 courses and a bottle of wine. Wine arrived to table in a carafe - which sent buzzer off in my brain, was told there was an error on the advertised deal!! Had fishcakes to start -they were burnt, my main of Hake was missing the broccoli - had to ask for it and eventually it arrived when I was finished, Strawberry pavlova for dessert had one strawberry cut in 4! Had to use the bathroom before I left to say it was a tight squeeze would be an understatement, as well as unsafe sink is practically on the stairs! Won't be returning!

Nice restaurant with lovely food. It is quite small, located upstairs with only one bathroom. We had set 3 course menu for a group and I was told at time of booking that if any of the group didn't go for full 3 courses we could get tea/ coffee instead. 2 of our group only had 2 of the 3 courses so was expecting not to be charged for 2 teas, but when checked receipt we were charged for this.

On a previous visit I was very happy but this time I'm afraid it was very disappointing, the food was bland and the service was just OK. I won't be going back

Dreadful establishment, Starter Poos, Main Course OK, Desert Poor; definitely won't return, I don't want to be unkind but this was the worst dining experience I've had ever..

Not the first visit to Odessa however disappointed. Food was fine however not as nice as it has been on previous visits. Main was slightly burnt but still edible. Staff were great.

We had a really generous menupages voucher for a three course meal with bottle of wine for 50euro. The food was very nice and the atmosphere in the restaurant was nice. There is a lovely beer garden upstairs and as the weather was nice it was lovely to sit out in

We went here on a Taste.ie voucher which had a restricted menu. I had the tomato soup for starter and thought it tasted like cans of tomatoes blended together and (not very well) heated up. My gf tasted it and said she thought it tasted like the sauce from spaghetti hoops. Full disclosure, I chose not to have the basil pesto croutons that came with the soup so it is possible their addition would have brought the whole thing together and I missed out big time. My gf had the duck liver parait, which she said was average. I had the cannelono with feta for my main and was not at all what I expected. You hear canneloni and feta and you imagine a bubbling bowl of cheesy, tomatoey goodness. However, rather bizarrely, the feta came out ice cold, hard and was just placed around the side of the plate. Did not make any sense. My gf had the pork belly and said it was nice and tender. For dessert we had the brownie and the pavlova. Both were fine. Nothing to wrote home about. The food is definitely all pre-cooked as the dishes come out very quickly. Our dessert had arrived nearly before we had ordered it. And I am aware that they are not going to be making individual brownies or pavlovas in the kitchen to order, but I think the pre-cooking applies to all the other dishes also. Staff were friendly and competent and the place is nice. I have had brunch a few times here downstairs, which is now the wildly popular taco taco, and I was always happy with that. Dunno whether the kitchen has changed hands recently.

I bought a voucher deal for 2 - the crab starter was ice cold in the middle, the pate needed a a sledge hammer to cut into and the toasted bread could break a full set of teeth. Steak was surrounded by a thick layer of fat/grissle on a bed of sludge. The chicken & potatoes were served in a watery bath of something but I have never tasted chicken like it before and never want to. I will never go back here again nor will I recommend it to anyone to try.

We dined here on a voucher for 3 courses, wine and a cocktail. The food was so bland and boring. Starter of pate was only okay but you could have broken a tooth on the bread it was so hard. Main course of fish totally tastleless the smallest bit of hake sitting on boring mash surrounded by what tasted like mushroom soup. Desert of chocolate browine was dry. The restaurant was freezing and if you sit near a window there is a terrible draft. The tables are not clean and in between the cracks of the tables is dirt which completely put me off my meal. Never again

I dined here Sat evening with a friend on a voucher, it included a carafe of wine and two cocktails. The value of the deal was quite good. I had the crab cakes to start, which were gorgeous! My friend had the mozeralla and beetroot starter but only ate a couple of bites of it before handing it to me. I enjoyed it though! Mains - I got a fish pie, I enjoyed it - perhaps a bit too creamy but thats personal choice. My friend got the pork belly but it was burnt to a crisp and not pleasant. The meat was ruined. The deserts thankfully were gorgeous and definitely made an effort to redeem the meal. Staff were pleasant but the tables were sticky in the restaurant, like they hadn't been cleaned properly after the last diners. The cocktails included that we chose didn't seem to have much alcohol in them. I'm glad to have tried the place, but wouldn't be rushing back.
