    Went for Sunday brunch, first sitting so overall it was quiet and not very busy. Service was a bit scrappy, and several times I had to try to call someone over to our table. Food was nice and arrived quickly, presentation was lacking with zero garnish. However I go here regualarily as I like the space and the views.

    Layla'sResponded 2 days agoDear Sia, Sorry to hear the service was not what it should have been. Please do notify me on your return so we can get you a drink on us as a way of apology. Generally the guys are very attentive so please come back again so we can prove this was a once off. Best, Layla's GM

    Really lovely meal, we had some small plates and the pizzas. Cocktails were yum. We had Chris as our server and he was the perfect mix of being attentive without being overbearing. Would definitely be going back.

    All was very good except the food was not hot. We had pizza, cod croquettes and soup. We did not tell the waiter so the staff did not have an opportunity to respond to this problem. Just saying it so that management can try to head this problem off in future. We didn’t say it to each other until after we had left.

    The Layla team were extremely welcoming, they accommodated us with the table requested with a beautiful view over the rooftops of Dublin. Staff were kindly attentive, we only had Pizza, The only one small thing was the wine was very expensive, but it was a special occasion! I was proud to show my UK friend a wonderful dining experience, Definitely highly recommend. Thank you for a memorable evening Layla's. AIEB

    Perfect location for entertaining visitors to Dublin. Fabulous views over city watching sun go down. Relaxed atmosphere with attentive staff. Best pizzas outside of Tuscany,I think the chef may be using his secret family recipe😜Easily the best pizza in Dublin👌

    Went for brunch. Age range from 80 down to 12. Food was great. Service v friendly. The views were great too. It was busy and lively, so probably didn't also need music on the speakers. Would happily go again

    It was a lovely dinner and the “outdoor” dining didn’t feel like you were outdoors - except for the people smoking next to us, even though it states it’s a non smoking area. Food was really nice and arrived quickly. Was perfect for our girls Night out

    Booking a table was an easy process, finding the restaurant was a bit difficult, not many signs nor was there many signs showing what way to go once you enter the building where the restaurant is situated. However, the service, quality, decors and food was experimental, slight more expensive than it is worth but still very very good 👍 Would definitely recommend and have already recommended.

    Attractive room but noisy and a lot of ventilator draught. Food not bad but not memorable- though my ravioli good. Pricing reflects cost of outfitting rather than food.

    Layla'sResponded on 14 September 2022Dear David, Sorry to hear you felt that way. Layla's is a very busy restaurant and does get a bit noisy but we do have quieter seats if requested. Hopefully you will visit again and we can show you how great Layla's can be. Best, Layla's GM
