    Menu was very poor for an afternoon sitting.. either lots of eggs or pizza.. felt it was very random and limited for a mid afternoon menu and wine extremely expensive.

    Layla'sResponded on 20 November 2022Dear Anonymous, Sorry to see your last visit to Layla's was not one that wowed you. We do brunch only on the weekends and that menu definitely focuses more on breakfast foods. Our mid-week lunch menu has a lot of beautiful dishes to offer and maybe you would prefer that. As for the wines there are some great options starting at 8.60 a glass which we would be happy to point out on your next visit. Email me directly and I will make sure your first glass is on us! layla's GM aoife@laylas.ie

    Lunch was very pleasant. The rooftop restaurant was tastefully furnished with nice art on the walls. The view over the rooftops was lovely on this sunny day. The service was impeccable, we were treated like regulars although it was our first time eating here. Very friendly and professional. The menu had a good choice of dishes, everything was fine but in terms of taste a bit too much on the safe side for me. Overall a super family lunch. Will be back.

    We always love dining at Layla's, especially out on the terrace. The food and service were excellent as always. The only caveat we'd have for this time of year, might be to add an extra heater or two and perhaps provide throws so that diners can keep their legs and/or shoulders warm. Because of the pandemic, we still prefer sitting outside and Layla's covered terrace is ideal in any weather, but it was very cold this time of year. It was cold, I kept my coat on all night.

    we were indoor near the front door cool wind coming in but then we asked the waiter for assistance. The door was closed. Problem solved. Noisy group of young women nearby for the latter part of the evening. All talking over each other, but what can you do. Restaurant, the helpful upbeat staff and food were 5 star.

    Poor food and not worth the price. Food was only tepid when it arrived. Not worth the money and very over hyped.

    Layla'sResponded on 31 October 2022Dear Jay, This is definitely not all Layla's has to offer. Unfortunately sometimes mistakes happen but I can assure you Layla's is often praised for its great service and amazing food. Please let me invite you back so that we can show you that your last visit to Layla's was a once off. Email me directly for your next booking so that I can organise a drink and some starters on us.
