Absolutely super staff, and the food was divine! Only feedback I would give is that the night we were there we were seated on high table near door, which was a little breezy at times. For the winter months it might be worth considering a curtain or something.

Apart from that- faultless! Loved it and will most certainly be back and recommending to friends.

Well done!

Susan.

Fabulous food and with the chefs menu great value and a very full belly! Went early enough on a Sunday evening and it was quiet but as we were leaving it was nearly a full house and it was a lovely atmosphere.

HOST is a wonderful neighbourhood restaurant serving delicious food at reasonable prices. I love their small plates and the interesting combinations of flavours. The Chefs menu is highly recommended and the house red from the Douro at 27 euro is lovely. I enjoyed every morsel and will be back for more.

One of the best meals you can get in Dublin as far as I'm concerned!

Brilliant service from informed and friendly staff, a great atmosphere, and most importantly some unbelievably delicious food. The chef's taster menu is an absolute winner and is really great value considering the outstanding quality of the 6 or 7 plates of food you're treated to.

10/10, have eaten here before and will 100% be eating here again!

Had a delicious birthday meal in Host this weekend - the food is amazing and great value. The staff are so welcoming and friendly which really makes the whole experience great. The only downside was the noise, it was so loud we couldn't hear each other but I know that's out of the restaurants control. We were at the window which may have amplified the noise - try and get a different seat!

I nearly don't want to give this review as Host is so good, I want to make sure I can get another booking! The food was amazing - very well cooked, simple ingredients. The broccoli side and aubergine and buratta are my standout favourites. Was a bit loud? But still give it 5 stars. Have booked next visit already

Lovely food which was very well presented and full of flavour.
The Chef's menu portion sizes are slightly too large for 2 people (makes the main course and dessert less easy to fully enjoy).

Read about Host on a top 100 list for Ireland while we were visiting from across the sea. I am spoiled in my local area with the quality of the restaurants we have available, and I was very happy to find that Host ranks right up among my favorites. The food was focused on local, fresh foods, which produced outstanding, natural flavors. My waitress also aided me in pairing a perfect wine to complement everything. Definitely a place to visit for a nice dinner if visiting in the area.
