I just love the restaurant. The service and food is top class. Thought desserts a bit overpriced. It's situation is convenient and on a dull day (the day we were there), outside was irrelevant More

We had a terrific evening at Sophie's on Monday last. We were meeting with 5 American friends who are on holiday here for a week, and we chose Sophies based on the menu, views, reviews and ability to seat 8 friends together who wanted to chat. The music was not too loud, we could hear each other perfectly, the food was delicious and you very kindly catered for one of the group by marking her birthday even though she wasn't having a dessert. This attention to detail and kindness made our evening. Also we weren't rushed from our table when the 2 hours were up as it was relatively quiet and the cocktails were delicious. Thank you so much to the chefs and staff, we will definitely be back 🤗🤗🤗 More

We went here for my favourite steak to share - the chateaubriand - however they had a set menu for Valentines. That being said, I was still incredibly happy with the quality of the food. The most notable thing here is the service, which is always fantastic (and I have had the same waiter twice now). It was a special touch when they gave me a rose for Valentines. More

Professional, relaxed and smart dining room. Wide and interesting menu and attentive staff - all made for a good meal. The flatbread was great - the roasted cauliflower less so (not hot and a bit too burnt....so slightly bitter to taste and a bit mushy to texture - the one item that stopped the meal from being great!)

Italian | South City Centre, Dublin 2

Caffé Parigi is the result of an ambitious and wonderful dream to create a Café (or Caffè – depending on who you are talking to) where one could believe one was on a corner in Paris or a backstreet of Milan without ever having to leave the country. To bring to Ireland the very best that France and Italy had to offer, and to provide good, simple and delicious food.

Our aim is to provide great food at affordable prices in a stylish environment. We know that these are easily found in the beautiful cities of Paris and Milan. Caffe Parigi lets you experience the French and Italian lifestyle right here in the beautiful city of Dublin too!More
