We went to the Saddle Room for a celebration and it didn't dissapoint. The food was excellent and the service was discreet. Even the children's menu was varied and healthy. It is obviously not cheap however it is good value for the food and atmosphere. We will definitely return. More

Contemporary European | South City Centre, Dublin 2

Beautiful space with friendly staff. We were there late and were not rushed out, and they were good to note that it was my partner's bday (I had left a comment when booking) and they made sure to include a cute dessert at the end without me following up/asking about it (good attention to detail.) Food was well priced and delicious, but what stole the show (in my opinion) were the cocktails. Omg...so good. Would definitely recommend for a nice night out for dinner or drinks with loved ones or friends. The volume was on the lower level once the large table left, hahah. More

The food is beautiful we really enjoyed the meal however there was a big party of men who were particularly loud and it was difficult to have a conversation with the noise level. The staff kindly moved us to a quieter area, they were very accommodating and I could not fault them. More

Dining Bar | South City Centre, Dublin 2

It was a great experience. Amazing cocktails, very good (although a bit overpriced) food. Only thing they could improve is that there were only two waiters for a very packed terrace-that made service quite slow (we ordered, and waited for 15 minutes for two cocktails). The rest was great and the staff was friendly. More

I don't like steakhouses generally speaking...but I LOVE Shanahan's on The Green. I just love everything about the place...the Irish beef is amazing, cooked perfectly...the sides are fantastic, the vibe and atmosphere...it's just perfect. The service and Martin, the manager are absolutely the best. I'm usually here once a year and without fail, I'm gonna have a meal at Shanahan's on The Green. More

International | South City Centre, Dublin 2

Two days later, and my mouth is still watering at the thought of the gorgeous food. It was really delicious and so well cooked and presented, and left me very satisfied but not at all over-full which is always a risk. I had the fillet steak and fries, and the others has the Supreme of Chicken. I was so tempted to lick the plate, it was that good!! My only constructive criticism is that it's not clear from the photos that the seating isn't in the conservatory but is rather on the top floor (and I had an 85 year old with me, but who is fortunately fit). We were sitting in a very intimate room on the top floor right beside a bar which got really noisy as a party flooded in for pre-dinner drinks. It was enough for my mother's hearing-aide to be switched off. Between the cocktail shaker and the blender, it put a less-than-perfect spin on our night out. That said, I will definitely go back, and I have told quite a few people about it. The staff were super--really nice and friendly, and allowed me to try three different wines before I settled (their offer, not my ask!). Great night, great location. Just worth managing expectations around seating location, I'd say. Thanks for a lovely night. More

Barbecue | South City Centre, Dublin 2

A nice relaxed vibe. Garlic bread and wings were both lovely, the buffalo sauce was just slightly too hot for us but the meat was delicious. It's a bit pricey for what it is, and the service was okay but nothing special. Will definitely come back to try other flavours of wings. More

Afternoon Tea | South City Centre, Dublin 2

Overall I really enjoyed the afternoon tea in the Radisson. However, I booked through Open Table and unfortunately when I arrived I was told I had no reservation. A lovely female worker made it her business to find out exactly what was going on (I feel Open Table hadn't been checked for that day and therefore the reservation was not put into their reservations). Once everything was clarified- we were treated so well with such a high level of service. Everything from the food, prosecco, tea/ coffee was lovely. My partner was awkward with his requests asking for things that were not a part of the fixed menu and they obliged him without any issues. The hotel was extremely busy and there was a private party taking place near us- however, all staff members were on top form and served our table with impressive timing and professionalism. I was very impressed with all of the staff and obviously the only critique was- they need to check their Open Table reservations everyday. More

It was a cold, wet, windy night, but the atmosphere in Industry & Co was warm and festive. The place was buzzing by 9pm. There is a small menu, which I prefer, and everything was delicious. We had a couple of bottles of wine (gulp) and three courses and the bill was 124 euro, so excellent value. Would highly recommend. More

In the lower depths of Fallon & Byrne lies the romantic, candlelit Wine Cellar, where the shelves are stocked with wickedly quaffable wines from every corner of the globe. We can recommend every last one, to be enjoyed with a snack, a light bite or a feast from our rustic all-day food menu. And to banish those early week blues, we offer €1 corkage on all retail wines to enjoy in the Cellar every Monday & Tuesday (excluding December)More
