Loved the restaurant but i found that the waitress was rather rude. I did not finish my soup and when asked i said i did not like the lump of cream in it, she said in a harsh voice that it was not cream it was cream cheese.. i thought it was rather harsh way to speak to a customer in front of their friend. When i was eating my dinner she again rudely interrupted us and asked me was my dinner ok, i am a slow eater and i thought again what is her problem.. More

Afternoon Tea | South City Centre, Dublin 2

We were there for a 30th birthday family get-together. It was a lovely afternoon. The birthday girl got a plate with 3 macaroons and a candle while the piano player played happy birthday which was a nice touch. However, I would definitely say it was a once off as 49 euros is very expensive for what you get. More

A fine dining experience, at a healthy price. Choices were many and varied, and food was excellent. Service not as cheerful as i might have expected--professional but distant with an occasional time lapse. A very worthwhile visit and I would come again without hesitation. More

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
