Welcome to Juanitos, we serve soul food, LA style in the heart of Dublin with an Asian fusion twist! Amigos, enemigos and lovers welcome!

We are a very popular, busy, fast-paced restaurant.

    The name sounds like mexican but the only thing mexican is nachos. Everything else is Asian Fusion. It was good food but odd. We had great service and good food and drinks so while the menu was odd everything was good.

    Food was ok but not amazing, no more huevos rancheros or brunch type item. Service was not too kind and atmosphere quite cold while at the back of the place

    Great for a town buzzing get together meal with friends. Food was just as nice as our last time, various staff members we interacted with were all lovely, however our waitress obviously wasn't in the mood for a busy Saturday night in work. She was miserable, sullen and did the bare minimum. Nobody knows what's going on with people's lives, the trick in hospitality is to not let it show on your face and let off steam when you finish. Disappointing really as there were some lovely colleagues of hers who obviously were enjoying their jobs who we could have had instead. It would not stop me from returning or recommending the restaurant as it's by a part of town we enjoy,these things happen.

    Food was average, service was pretty poor, so difficult to get the staffs attention and would’ve drank/spent more if it was easier to find someone to order a drink. Bathrooms are fairly gross as well, clearly just put a lick of paint on the old south William bathrooms and did nothing else, locks on the doors were even broken, for a new enough spot it was pretty disappointing. Wouldn’t be recommending it to anyone any time soon

    They were very accommodating for a large group. We made several changes to the number beforehand, and they were great. The food was really tasty and fun, and the atmosphere and location were great. Only negative was the waitstaff. Our table was a late reservation (8:30), and waitress clearly didn't want to be there and constantly gave us glares. She even disappeared at the end of the night rather than finish her job with us and a few other tables. While she was attentive and all our food was correct, she was unfriendly and made it abundantly clear that she didn't want to wait for our table to finish (hence she went home before we were done and left the service to the other staff). This was a Thursday night, a relatively busy day, and we were out of the restaurant by 10:30, which is not too unreasonable. Other than that, it was a great place (minus they ran out of chicken- so no chicken dishes available). Hope they make it, but seems to be supply chain issues and lack of good waitstaff are challenges.

    Don't book for 9pm. The staff were agitated to get our order early as kitchen was closing. It was our first time there so couldn't take in the menu properly. We couldn't order dessert as kitchen was closed. We just felt like they wanted us out... no offer of tea/ coffee. Very bad service.

    I ate nachos with beef. Beef was extremely salty and very difficult to eat. I also ordered margarita and it was served with regular water glass which is disappointing. When I came home, 2 hours later I started to throw out everything I ate. Beef was poisoned me. I will not go there again. I was too sick all day after it.

    Fair, but rather overpriced - food is ok but expensive for what you get, cocktails are good but so light you would even doubt they're alcoholic at all. Probably won't go back
