Experience our fabulous outdoor space for lunch. Rain or sunshine the Garden has a cosy and heated atmosphere in any case and can be requested, subject to availability.

The bright and airy first floor dining room is a really comfortable space to relax and enjoy lunch or dinner and a glass or two of fine wine. We use locally sourced, seasonal produce where possible combined with the very best Italian ingredients to create a menu that is modern and unique. We consider ourselves a contemporary Irish restaurant with an Italian influence.

                                                        Staff were a little pushy (rather than polite) when looking for the table back. It was a small bit loud. But otherwise great food, drinks and great atmosphere.

                                                        Drury is my favourite place in Dublin. The food is amazing and they have the most friendly and helpful staff.

                                                        Enjoyed our meal; the only thing I noticed was that the Arancini stuffing was heavier than the last time we ate here, had less mushroom in it and so was not as delicious as it should have been. Staff are excellent and friendly too.

                                                        This was a great spot for a romantic date. We were seated upstairs which had lovely decor and lighting. The dishes we ordered were impeccable. Quite pricey but that's to be expected for the location and quality of food.

                                                        The food was delicious, service was efficient and quick. Unfortunately a staff member cut our time short as there was another booking. We had received an email to say that we had the table for 1 hour and 45 minutes but after 1 hour and 5 minutes we were handed our bill. At 1 hour and 20 minutes we were told another couple needed our table even though we had booked our table well in advance. Very disappointing service at the end.

                                                        The place's cool but I wouldn't recommend it as a restaurant but as a lounge. Music way too loud and food quite cold as it reached the table. The atmosphere was cool and nice for drinks, not at all for dinner. Great for drinks and hang out, though. The staff nice and helpful.

                                                        Portions big enough, we ordered 3 minis each and was plenty. Peanut dessert was fab. Ribs, prawns, bruscetta,humus all lovely and chicken wings were gorgeous. Very happy all round

Outdoor area in the back is great, just a small note but candles on tables weren’t lit for some reason but would have given more ambience. Would definitely return!

                                                        Felt very rushed and stressed. Non stop interruptions from the server pushing us to buy more, cleaning the table, asking if we were finished, etc. Bill was incorrect by over €100 and it was a bit of a fuss to get it sorted - to be clear, I'm sure the overcharge was an accident and it wasn't that they refused to change it, it was just a bit of a production and the staff seemed super-stressed and under pressure.

                                                        We had a wonderful afternoon in Drury buildings. The staff were lovely and made us feel very welcome. Cocktails were great - and they made us ones not on the menu with a smile! Highly recommended!
