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.
