A Dublin restaurant has spoken out after almost all of their bookings didn’t show up this evening.
It’s been a grim few days weather-wise in the city and it appears that this has had a knock-on effect on the number of people choosing to cancel their plans.
Popular local spot Lil Portie Caribbean Kitchen in Rathmines took to Twitter to remind people that it’s more than a simple inconvenience for owners when people simply don’t show up.
They wrote, ‘15 people booked in and 11 no shows. Is rain that bad that a courtesy notice goes a miss?’
They added, ‘In these cases it is rare people see the result of their decisions.’

Lil Portie currently has a semi-permanent evening residency at popular Rathmines coffee spot Two Fifty Square.
Decided you’d rather just stay home than venture out on a cold winter’s evening? Call and let the restaurant and let them know – it’s only a minute out of your day and saves them a whole lot of hassle.
