Opium is a great place to go for a variety of events. Whether that is a date, a birthday or a business event, Opium is a great place for all of them. Their mains are massive and their desserts are the things of dreams. Definitely worth the visit and I will be back.

Food was great, service was impeccable. Lovely to be able to go to a place for a meal without feeling that people are sitting on top of you. Nice wines too highly recommend. Only issue is the price of the cocktails, a little to pricey but overall a great experience

It was really noisy , we could barely hear ourselves talking , food wasn't that bad, but i can't say it was something that special. Service was a bit slow and typical for Ireland.

Loved the whole experience - all of us had never been before and will be recommending it. Open table helped us choose the venue although it had been recommended before. The upstairs, conservatory style, bar had a great atmosphere and we stayed her for several drinks after our meal.

Starter of chicken satay was tough and not as good as on previous occasion, rice in main meal was cold, however both were replaced and deserts & coffee were compliments of chef. Waiter was 1st class. So 5* for service.
