I went for dinner with four friends. We sat in the outdoor covered seating area and enjoyed a really nice meal. Both the food and the service were excellent. The only issue was that it was raining and the outdoor cover was dripping down the back of my friend’s chair. Other than that it was a really pleasant experience and it was good value.

Booked a table for brunch to celebrate my mother’s birthday. The venue was beautiful the food was delicious, service was impeccable. Couldn’t fault it in any way, totally made my Mother’s day special with a rendition of happy birthday and a lovely dessert with a candle for her to blow out. Couldn’t recommend this restaurant more 😊

What a lovely space, just round the back of Wexford street. It was like being in an oasis - bright, loads of plants and greenery, spacious. The staff were delightful and the food delicious and in decent-sized portions. We only had a mix of starters but we were eying up the main courses going to other tables, and they all looked (and smelled) great.

We arrived an hour earlier than our booking and were facilitated with a table in the lounge bar for pre dinner drinks. There was absolutely no problem and we were greeted with a warm welcome. The staff were all very friendly and so polite. Menu choice was excellent and catered for all our party tastes. We had two coeliacs among us and there was plenty of choice to suit there needs including a delicious flourless brownie for dessert. Overall we had a thoroughly enjoyable graduation celebration evening and we will most definitely return.

Found Opium through Google and Booked in for dinner, dessert and a couple of cocktails with family.
The staff were very polite and friendly.
The food and desserts were so incredibly delicious! As were the cocktails!
We were booked in for a late dinner at 8:45pm and as it is a bar also, there was music playing so the volume of the bar was a bit louder but you could still comfortably talk and hear each other without being completely drowned out by the volume.
