    Great service!! Food was very good! Could be worth investing in blinds as it was an issue for a lot of the restaurant. Unique cocktail menu!!

    The food is fabulous and the staff are attentive without being intrusive. The wine list is ok there are some nice wines some are a little over priced but there are some for good value. However the food is of top quality and all of it was impressive

It’s a celebration of culinary mastery, impeccable service, and the joy of savoring exceptional food in an inviting atmosphere. A true gem in the heart of Rathgar, Orwell Road sets the standard for fine dining experiences, leaving me and my girlfreind with memories to cherish long after the last bite….thank you.

    We were half an hour early, no problem, seats at the counter so we had a great view of the kitchen and also all the amazing cocktails being made in front of us!! Extra portion of starter sent out was a nice touch and the food was spectacular, beautiful ingredients treated with love and respect, we will be back for the rest of the menu in the near future!

    We had a most enjoyable family lunch, three generations. Roberta looked after us so well and couldn’t have been more attentive. My elderly mother got great attention and the food was delicious. She has had the short rib before and it was just as tender this time. All beautifully presented too, beetroot sides were most tasty. Excellent service and lunch.

    We enjoyed our evening in your restaurant, ‘Orwell Road’ Delicious food served by delightful waiters, the ambiance was good, though the noise level a bit high. Though the coffee that I had was weak, maybe my choice was wrong, I would hope to make another booking in the near future. I wish the booking was a little formidable.

    Our server was pleasant, attentive and knowledgeable. The food was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed the flavours particularly both starters. We would be happy to return and will recommend it to our friends. After dinner my wife chatted to the manager about Croatia where she is planning a short break with our daughter and he was most informative and helpful

    Atmosphere, Service and Food were EXCEPTIONAL. An absolute gem of a restaurant and well worth venturing out of the city centre for. Very reasonable pricing for the extremely high quality food and wines. I would highly recommend a visit to Orwell Road, a mid-week evening out that has left a lasting impression and wonderful memory.

    Had my birthday celebration here and we absolutely loved the place! From high quality food, to amazing service. Goran made sure we are properly looked after and the chef made sure our taste buds are satisfied. During celebration we all agreed to come back soon. Cozy place with a lovely decor. Highly recommended!
