14. April 2012: Fitzsimons Temple Bar

| April 18, 2012 | 0 Comments

Traditional Irish food like a “Beef and Guinness Pie” (100% Irish beef slowly cooked in a rich Guinness and mushroom sauce, topped with fresh pastry; EUR 13.00) is definitely a go. It is a bit tricky to eat the pie as the pastry on top of the “pie” (which is more a soup) is not that easy to cut without leaving a mess. But the soup/pie is pretty tasty and the beef is good as well. The French fries on the other hand were not that outstanding but still were okay. What goes very well with a Beef and Guinness pie is, of course, a pint of Guinness (EUR 5.00).

The atmosphere in the Fitzsimons Temple bar is nice, it is all held in dark wood but the large windows provide enough light. The local derby of Manchester was shown on TV during the time I ate and it was pretty noisy, crowded but very atmospheric. The waitress was friendly and helpful and also astonishingly attentive.

Overall, the Fitzsimons Temple Bar is not really a special place but it is a good place to eat something small and to have a pint of Guinness or two.
