Had no prior knowledge of Fork but we booked it based on reviews and had a meal with a group of four. It turned out that this is the ideal number of people as every dish on the menu comes in sets of four title pieces (even the soups come in four little bowls). The food was exquisite and the... More

This restaurant is situated in Long street and is very popular with the amazing tapas that it serves. Great value for money as the food that it serves is of excellent quality and well presented. The service is prompt and friendly

I've been eaten here a few times... and it is ALWAYS a treat. They serve small plates, meant to be shared and each dish is better than the next. Sitting here one can easily be transported to a little village in Spain, not aware of the busy Long Street just outside. The setting is cozy, inviting and romantic. This is... More

I had a leisurely and late tapas lunch with a friend. We had goats cheese, meatballs, raclette, fries and sticky toffee pudding. The dishes were wonderful. The setting upstairs on the balcony outside was perfect. Recommend it and look forward to trying more of the variety of tapas offered.

We rang about an hour ahead to reserve a table and we're glad we did! The downstairs restaurant was full and appeared to be a big crowd upstairs too. We ordered 5 tapas and it was so good we ordered another two! Goats cheese, fish cakes were highlights- About €50 for 7 tapas and 4 glasses of wine.

I really enjoyed this place. If you like to eat different flavors (no in big portions) this place is perfect. We went twice and it was delicious. Price, service and environment are very good too.

Booked in for dinner- it was packed,lucky we had reserved. We ordered 3 tapas each and every single one was delicious. Goats cheese was spectacular. Unfortunately there was no ravilione left to order. Lots of wines including a few organic wines. Highly recommend this place.

didnt go in April, went years ago but I was recently reminded about this restaurant and apparently it is as good as it was when i went all those years ago. Delicious flavour fest served to you many tapas style portions which allows to satisfy many tastes but does challenge your wallet if you hungry.
