Uisce by Heaney's

1 user review 5

Little sister to Tommy's Heaney's flagship eatery, Uisce can more than hold its own in the restaurant stakes. With an all-day offering of delicious plates, this cafe and wine bar serves up rustic comfort food including smoked sardine Caesar salads, lamb shoulder crumpets, and a selection of internationally-sourced charcuterie boards.

A dedicated board game cafe with a bar offering to boot, it's all too easy to while away an afternoon at Chance & Counters. Alongside their extensive selection of games, that run the gamut of old, new and obscure, they've also got a menu of sandwiches and small plates for if your dice rolling arm needs a pick-me-up.

Bar 44

Dishing up high-quality tapas dishes and an eclectic range of tasty drinks, Bar 44 boasts cool interiors, a relaxed atmosphere, and some of the best G&Ts in the city. It also happens to serve one heck of a Spanish breakfast with crispy pancetta, chorizo, mushroom croqueta and fried eggs.
