5 of us ate here Saturday night in Pop Up Pyg. We did not have a booking but after half an hour we were called from the nearby bar to say a table was available. The big open ceiling, lighting and the nearby music from the bar created a lovely atmosphere. The staff were extremely efficient and friendly. We ordered far too many dishes, thinking that they would be smaller given the very reasonable prices. I had the cranberry and feta salad which was devine, and had a very generous amount of Feta on it. I tried one of the specials- Pollo Negro, it was delicious. All of the other dishes were very cheap for the size and quality of the food. Meatballs, chorizo stew, sweet potato and feta gratin, nachos, camembert and pil pil prawns were among the other tapas dishes tried, all devine! Compared to other restaurants which do tapas the dishes are bigger and of a much higher quality. Will definitely be visiting this place again. All together our bill came to 112euro with steak, a special and 11 "small" dishes!!

I've eaten here a few times and have always enjoyed it. I had lunch recently, and again was struck by the value for money, it really is so good. We both had smoked salmon, poached egg and asparagus on wholemeal bread.... delicious. The egg was perfectly cooked and the dish looked gorgeous, and only costs €5.50. We had a few coffees, a side of (huge!) chunky chips and the bill came to just under €30. Very nice staff; it was pretty quiet when we were there which makes for a nice experience for us, sometimes it can be very busy which is a little less pleasant, but better for the restaurant of course :-) Highly recommend a visit, the Powercourt centre is good to have a wander around afterwards too.

It's a tradition for my mother and I to eat here for lunch on our Christmas shopping day in Dublin city. This is the restaurant in the Powerscourt Townhouse, rather than the bar itself. We initially moved tables three times because it was was so cold, but the staff were very accommodating. We each had a lovely panini, one with chipotle and chicken, the other with mozzarella, and pesto. We usually get their skinny fries, but they had run out, so we had the slightly too chunkiest chips I had ever seen! The experience wasn't quite as relaxing as we had hoped, but the food was very good.
