Came for lunch - I had a wonderful waitress - Debbie - she was REALLY nice to me & assured me I was in a safe place (which was just the best feeling) - Got the fish and chips & loved it - I actually made reservations while sitting there for dinner the next day.. no reaction or hives etc. Hopefully tomorrow I’ll get Debbie again lol!!

Update tonight I was with Mike!!!!! - who was just as amazing as Debbie - told me all about the restaurant etc and surprised me with the boxty fries which were to dieeeee for!!! He was awesome!!! We had a GREAT dinner - really enjoyed all of it!!! Cocktails were 🤌🏼🤌🏼🤌🏼😘😘😘 - no reaction - wish they could ship me the boxty fries to the states.

Waitstaff very dismissive of allergy. Got sick within 10 minutes of eating even though I was assured since the item didn’t have gluten listed as an allergen I would be fine. Very disappointed

Good food. Felt safe as most items are gluten free except the pies. In temple bar area which is more touristy so you are paying higher prices

Food us excellent abd safety awareness / precautions top notch. Be aware that a full meal, coffee / tea and desserts (no alcohol) is much more pricey than the 2x $ suggests.

The food was delicious, the staff friendly and helpful, and the atmosphere pleasant. The items we ordered were delicious: brunch boxty dumplings with spinach and mushrooms, fries, and tomato and mozzarella salad. I have no insight into kitchen practices, so cannot speak to safety.

I don’t understand how anyone rated this place highly. We went for breakfast and when I asked for a gluten free menu the waitress rudely said to just pick any option without a ‘1’ allergen marked. I noticed that the veggie brekkie did not have a ‘1’ so I wanted to confirm that the boxty pancake was not made with flour and said I was Celiac. Again she was very rude and said if there’s no ‘1’ it’s gluten free. I went ahead and ordered it but ended up not eating the boxty pancake nor anything that touched it since I did not feel safe (it looked very much like a traditional pancake that would be made with flour). That left me with just fried eggs and beans. I did not get sick, but it was obviously not an enjoyable meal and I wish I had just left without trying to order something.

Very good meals. Many GF options. Ate here three times. Beef Boxty, Chicken Boxty (my fav), Fish & Chips were all excellent and went well with a pint of Bulmer’s Cider. The GF bread pudding with vanilla crème was the only “eh” thing I had. Watch out, the ketchup contains barley.

The upside is that the food is delicious! The downside is I got sick and I didn’t eat anything else the day I ate here. Within 30 minutes I knew something was off. The servers seemed knowledgeable and based on all the positive reviews on here and the allergens clearly marked on the menu I gave it a try. The first red flag was that the Boxty was listed as containing milk on the regular menu but not on the side dish menu so I guess they aren’t super accurate with allergens. When I asked the server about it and he double checked with the chef, he found that it was incorrectly marked on the menu. I had the baked salmon with veggies and steak chips (I’m guessing these were fried in oil with gluten or something). I wouldn’t recommend to other celiacs.

Lovely place, great service and catered to gluten-free needs. Menu clearly marked for “NG” (non gluten), good cider options. Their gaelic Boxty steak with mushroom gravy (wrapped in a GF potato pancake?!? Yum!) was off the chart good, tender, and cooked perfectly medium-rare. And the Baileys cheesecake (also gluten-free) was a fantastic way to end my Dublin visit.

Staff was quite knowledgeable on GF and friendly. I’ll be back!

So glad I found this quaint eatery in Temple Bar. Service was wonderful. I had an excellent gf beer, and my first gf fish and chips. The fish was lightly coated and perfectly crispy. My server also offered me a taste of a locally made gf hard cider which had just enough bite without the sticky sweetness. A marvelous way to start my Ireland vacation.

All I can say is wow! Food and service both amazing. If you’re wondering what a “boxty” is like I was, it’s a potato based pancake. They serve them as dumplings which are essentially “gnocchi” and pancakes. Mix this deliciousness with some classic Irish flavors like corned beef and beef fillets. Not to be missed! Very knowledgeable staff

EAT HERE! I would give this more stars if that was an option. We've had a number of delicious gluten free meals in Ireland, but this was the BEST! The menu is clearly marked with gluten free items and they are plentiful. We had the Boxty platter (to die for, maybe the yummy appetizer I've ever had) and we ordered the Fish 'n' Chips and Gaelic Boxty (tender beef medallions in a potato pancake with a rich mushroom gravy) to share - so, so, so delicious! And dessert is available. Sticky toffee pudding, caramelized apples with sultanas and dumplings with ice cream, and Baileys cheesecake with cherry compote and chocolate sauce. Gluten free heaven in Dublin

Ordered the chicken boxty, so delicious:) One server seemed confused a moment when I said I had celiac which was momentarily concerning. The other staff assured me everything labeled was truly gf. I also had the almond chocolate cake for desert. Felt great and had one of my best meals in Ireland here.
