    The restaurant menu only includes burgers, fish and chips, and beer snacks now. They no longer serve those beautiful dishes you can see in the photos. Not what we expect at all

    The restaurant has a great ambiance and the service was excellent. The menu was very limited to wings, burgers and fish and chips. It was just basic pub food and didn’t reflect the extent of the online menu

    We were expecting to have a similar exceptional culinary experience to the last time we had a meal there some months ago. However, the chef has left and the menu has gone back to basic but good pub food. Very limited choice and in our case having arrived early to go to the cinema the desert was already unavailable. Wine was very nice, service very friendly and my strip loin was very good. So nothing wrong overall except it’s not what you might be expecting if you are expecting the previous menu on offer. The reviews are based on experience with the previous chef so I would classify the continued use of these reviews as nothing short of misleading. I could have clicked on the menu on the open table app to see the menu had entirely changed but I don’t really ever feel the need to. I would suggest that both the restaurant and the open table app do something to rectify this in order to avoid the food on offer to be nothing like you would have expected.

    This is no longer the restaurant that is reviewed online. It's now a pub grub spot, which is fine if you book knowing this, but to keep the name olive and Figg is misleading. Same staff serving at the bar in the pub and the restaurant, chips and burgers make up most of the menu, may as well have booked into my local pub instead of travelling from meath..very disappointed

    We arrived at 630 and restaurant was quiet but filled up soon after. There was 1 person doing everything which made service poor. They had no vegetarian burger and told my daughter she could have soup or pasta. The chef kindly made her a mushroom burger. The battered fish was fine but seafood chowder had little fish in it. Overall it felt a bit like faltey towers and we won’t be back

    Good food, fast service, not too busy and nicely decorated room adjacent to the pub, booked it online because there was no response from the phone number during the day but was not busy anyway. Good place for a quick snack at reasonable prices

    This place is nice if you are looking for casual fare, burgers, chicken wings etc. It is NOT Peter Clifford's restaurant any longer. So don't expect gourmet food!

    This restaurant's stars and the bulk of its reviews come from a time when Peter Clifford was chef there. He's been gone for nearly 3 months now. I wasted my time booking to have dinner there with a friend and turned up to find a mostly empty place serving a pub food/everything-with-chips menu. It's not a gastro pub and has no relationship with either olives or figs. Felt I was lured here under false pretenses by Open Table. Went to eat somewhere else.

    We booked and drove an hour to get there, but when we arrived, they said it was closed, and there was a problem with the OpenTable service. Honestly, we were excited to taste and enjoy the place, but this issue disappointed our interest. We do not know if we can trust in booking the place anymore.

    We received a very warm welcome off Paul. We had beautiful food. So tasty and cooked fresh in a kitchen we could see from The table. The service was excellent. We were offered drinks regularly and plenty of water. The menu was explained and we were made aware of the special of the day. A lovely bistro, and we were very lucky, to have a window table.

    Very noisy pub with open doorway to restaurant. Two courses for for fifty euro with a choice of 5 starters/ mains. Choice of 3 desserts. For that price you don't expect to have to buy sides but only the lamb/steak included a side (and those choices had a supplement and could only be ordered for 2 people|). The food was ok, nothing fantastic, all in all way too expensive and wouldn't return. If only 2 people dining the choice is very limited as steak or lamb is for two people.

    While the food is not cheap (neither is anywhere else of its calibre) it is good value for such excellent cuisine. The chef is very accomplished without being over-fussy. The service is attentive and friendly without being overdone. And, as is well known, Irishmen should NEVER eat on an empty stomach it's great to be able to have a pint in McGettingans bar in the same building. Would I recommend it to a friend? I already have.

    We rally enjoyed our meal here. The quality and presentation of the food was very good and our server was a very pleasant man. Downsides were it was a bit noisy with a large group seated opposite us . Also there was no list of digestifs. Prices have risen recently but it is still well priced.

    Olives & Figs is a surprisingly great restaurant. In fact it is the best restaurant North of the Four Courts in Dublin. Cooking up a storm in the kitchen is Peter, who know his Sirloin and his Caviar, having sharpened his knives and his skills at Patrick of the Guilbaud. Front of house is Gemma, who knows her Chateaux Margaux, Dom Prignon and her Krug having spoiled many First Class VIPs on Emirates. No more to be said or written. Bon Appetit.

The menu is a delight for the senses with much creativity and wonderful flavors. We left feeling so happy, relaxed and the right amount of full! So happy to have found this restaurant! Can't wait to return to Dublin to enjoy a meal and visit the kind folks at Olive&Figs again.

    The restaurant offers a delicious bistro menu, with well-balanced flavours. The duck came slightly over cooked, however the staff at Olives&Figs rectify immediately by preparing a fresh serving and adding a complementary side dish and even comping it in the bill. Exceptional service and attentiveness. Staff’s genuine apology made me feel valued as a customer. The ambiance is cozy and inviting. I highly recommend it.

    We booked a table for 5 last Friday night and enjoyed every moment The food was excellent, with lovely staff. We felt well looked after and nothing was a problem. The treat of a delicious amuse bouche… on the house… started the evening off very well. Food arrived in great time. To cap it off we listened to a truly amazing singer in the bar afterwards We will definitely be back.
