Booked at the last minute. I was in my own and they found me a quiet corner. The food was excellent like it is every time.

Camden Kitchen used to be a fab little place but it's really just average now with overpriced greasy and overcooked food. I'd give it a miss. There are much much better places in the neighbourhood.

Excellent and original food in a pleasant atmosphere - although the space is small, it is well laid out and you don't feel cramped. Very good value - just as good on this visit as on my two previous ones.

A first visit, chosen on the basis of other diners’ positive reviews. Unfortunately this dining experience did not live up to expectations generated. The waiting staff were helpful in finding another table, having asked to be moved from the allocated table nearest the kitchen. The starters were OK but the duck leg main course was spoiled by being served on a bed of mashed potatoe. The tables are too close for comfort, the prices are probably average for Dublin, but unfortunately nothing would tempt me to return.

This was my third time dining at Camden Kitchen since Christmas but this occasion wasn't as outstanding as the previous two. While the service was excellent and the food well up to the mark, the overall ambience of the restaurant was spoiled by the music being played, in my opinion. On previous visits, the background music had been very mellow and suited to the small space of the downstairs dining room, usually jazz or easy-on-the-ear pop classics. This time, however, the music was unidentifiable and definitely not mellow but, worst of all, it was played with far too much bass which is just not conducive to conversation nor digestion. I did mention this to one of the waiters about halfway through our meal and requested that the bass at least be toned downed. Unfortunately, my request was ignored, so my rating for the restaurant on this occasion must reflect this. I'm sure I'll return fairly soon to Camden Kitchen since their cuisine is among the best in that part of Dublin. However, if it turns out to be decibel-heavy once more, that will probably be my final visit.

Ending Christmas celebrations with family could not have been better on Saturday in Camden Kitchen. Lovely gesture to mark Nollaig na mBan with a choice of either a dessert or glass of Prosecco at no charge for the ladies in the group! Food was absolutely delicious & beautifully presented. Nice, neighborhood vibe in a city centre location. Thank you! Will be back.

Really lovely spot and perfect for a group meal. Was my first time here and the service was wonderful, the food menu was a bit limited (it was Christmas-season so as expected) so would like to come back another time of year to try more.

Camden Kitchen is the now the first place that pops to my mind when choosing a Dublin 2 dinner location - whether with small group of girlfriends or date night dinner - it’s never let me down! The menu is always spot on, great wine choices and friendly, but not intrusive hospitality just makes it my favourite spot.

Excellent food but this is where it stops our table was so small it could not hold two plates, a wind cooler and a bottle of wine. You should never put a table next to the stairs. Everything spoiled by the ambience! Would never go back!
