Central location with good staff Only stopped here for a quick drink on the way out to the 3Arena for a gig recently. Good crowd there all for the same reason as Luas stop nearby. Table service for drinks by a very friendly and helpful barman who was able to give us extra info about the gig. Food being served to other customers looked lovely and I had a glance at what looked like a very comprehensive menu. Will give it a go for food the next time. Minor gripe was the toilets were downstairs and seemed a long way away.
Lunch and drinks Stopped into this lovely bar for drinks lunch and a spot of rugby last Sunday. What a lovely experience . The staff were absolutely excellent friendly chatty and recommending what to eat from the menu. I even got a present of a hat to bring with me to Country to country festival in 3 Arena. Food was very good and prices were reasonable. Will be back to visit again soon X highly recommend this place !!!!!
Outstanding Service and Food! For our evening meal, we made a reservation at the Grand Central Café Bar. We were intrigued by the pictures that we saw on their website. It is housed in an old bank - steeped in history right on O’Connell Street. Our server, Joseph, went out of his way to make us feel especially welcome and attended to our every want and need. He was truly the consummate waiter.My husband started with a Dubliner, 10-year old, Irish Single malt whiskey. Then, we enjoyed a bottle of Paul Mas Merlot – very smooth and drinkable. For our entrees, I had the Lamb Shank that came with mashed potatoes, carrots and broccoli. I just love lamb shanks; so, I was in my element. My husband savoured the Atlantic salmon with mashed potatoes and broccoli. We were intrigued by what we thought were onion rings, but turned out to be just fried onion straws. They were crispy and good. For dessert, he chose the Baileys Irish Cream Cheesecake. It was truly a decadent way to end a delicious meal! Our total bill was € 77.
