We consider ourselves a contemporary Irish restaurant with an Italian influence.

                                                        We dined in the outdoor space at Drury buildings on December 1st and it was amazing! The staff were so attentive, the food was incredible and the atmosphere was fab! Very good value for money, all of the tapas dishes were large enough to share. We will definitely be back.

                                                        Out of all the restaurants I visited in Dublin, this by far had the worst service. The restaurant was half empty and it still took 30 minutes for the server to take my food order and it like I was bothering him when I did. Could have have been a bad night for the restaurant but I cannot recommend this place.

                                                        The menu comes as "Large & Small" dishes but it seems the only thing large and small were the prices - all the dishes were small. €11.90 for SIX scampi prawns is not what I would call good value. €74 excluding the wine for what amounted to starter portions. I will not be back and will certainly not recommend Drury Buildings to any of my friends

                                                        The menu was not the same as online, not very ‘brunch’ style menu. I really struggled to find something I would enjoy. Also, it was really cold and I had to keep my coat on the entire time

                                                        Had a lovely evening, service was wonderful, food was great as were the cocktails we felt very well taken care of. I’m a celiac and they had a decent selection of food that was safe and made substitutions for food that was almost safe. They also all seemed well versed in celiac and were quick to point out anything that could be seriously cross contaminated. I will 100% go back.

                                                        Everything was very nice, the place is lovely, food was great. Only the noise level and the music were too loud to even hear myself speaking, but apart from that I enjoyed the experience.

                                                        Great atmosphere and decor but the food didn’t hit the mark. Very average and not that fresh.

                                                        Another lovely meal at Drury Buildings. Love the tapas style dishes here - all tasty and well-presented. Accompanied by an outstanding French Sauvignon Blanc at an excellent price. Efficient and friendly service too. We'll be back soon!

                                                        I was surprised that there was no check of our health passes, but maybe it is because where we were seated is considered as being outdoors.

                                                        The food was absolutely devine and the service was impeccable. Very hard to decide what was the best dish but would say the aranchini. There was a group of 3 of us and we ordered 8 plates between us. Everything came so quickly and was delicious.

                                                        Pork ribs and steak were slightly over cook. Oysters were the best . The rest were mediocre and didn’t live up to the hype of the reviews seen. Great setup and spot in town just was expecting more on the food front with flavours and taste
