I booked SOLE based on Trip Adviser reviews and it was not disappointing. The service was excellent, the waiter knew all about the wines, when we were selecting to make sure we picked the right one. The food was excellent. When I am back in Dublin I will be looking at coming here again.

Preis - Leistung Top.
Schade war nur, dass der Kellner und das komplette Team, trotz mehrmaligem Erwähnen des runden Geburtstages meines Mannes, nicht gratuliert hat. Ich hatte vorab einen Tisch bestellt und den Geburtstag per Mail angekündigt und auch um einen ruhigen Tisch gebeten. Leider hat man das nicht berücksichtigt.
Zum Schluss gab es aber doch noch eine kleine Praline für meinen Mann zum Geburtstag.
Trotzdem zu empfehlen und seeeehrrrr le ker.

We had a variety of oysters to start, which were delicious. Our main courses were quite good and substantial. I had asked for a small salad and I received a bowl of what I would call a relish of red pepper, tomato and onion. The brownie for dessert is actually a hot molten cake with a brownie crust. Very decadent. I will return.

Absolutely a 10 out of 10 for a Dublin seafood restaurant. I could not recommend a restaurant more.
Food and service were EXCELLENT. We had the seafood tower with lobster for 2. However we felt the lobster wasn't really worth the 40euros so next time we would reallocate that money towards some other item on the menu. The mussels in the cream sauce was absolutely AMAZING!!! if you go to Sole and don't get the mussels you are a fool, unless of course you don't like mussels. The cream base was incredible and would make a fantastic soup base. We used the extra sauce for dipping the bread in and loved every drop.
In short GO TO SOLE & get the mussels!!!
BTW it looks like they have great beef based on the aging beef refrigerators, however we didn't try it.


Enjoy!!!

The food was good but small portions and quite expensive. The halibut came with one single baby potato. Service wasn't great either. Has a really nice interior. Probably great for client dinners if you aren't paying the bill yourself.

It was really lovely, I always look into all the detail and I'm big into writing reviews. This is going to be my spot to go when I'm in town. It's classy, it's clean, layout is perfect (distance between tables), jazz music, decent and respectful customer service, normal plates! Food quality and taste, outstanding and portions are good enough, not too small, not over the edges.
If there was anything to improve I would say, to delegate the checking to one person only so the table doesn't get 3 or 4 people asking if all is going well, one time is enough.

I'm taking everyone I know there!

The only reason I would not recomment SOLE is that it is very expensive and I would rather that people may their own choices on restaurants that are this expensive. Beautiful restaurant well layed out. The only area that I would say where an improvement could be made, is the initial greet, when you arrive that the time is not taken up by your greeter filling up content about guests arrival.

Great food, perfect service, I especially like to thank our chef de rang (sorry I do not remember his name) for all the attention he has brought us. I really want to congratulate the room team, because they are very professional, they know their dishes, and they are very close to each other, which makes the customer really the center of attention. Oyster tasting and superb explanations and soles just perfect. According to some comments I was afraid that it will be too expensive, but it is not, the price is in line with the service and quality of food. We had ample food, we could not even take a dessert.

Thank you
