Awesome vibes in here and top food to match! Casual, laid back atmosphere and the staff are welcoming and friendly too. If you’re traveling solo you can easily grab a seat at the bar, have a great meal, and feel comfortable.
Fresh and honest food. The brisket sandwich was INSANELY awesome! Salads were super tasty and fresh! Friendly waiters too, this demands a return!
When a drink is lauded for having ‘people rise from the dead’, one can’t help but be intrigued. And once you taste it, you will believe in its magical powers. Whether you have a hangover or not, the Bloody Mary at Clarke’s in Bree Street is, well, bloody good
