A glasshouse restaurant, where the weather is our wallpaper. We serve breakfast and dinner 7 days a week. We do lunch on weekdays and brunch at the weekend.




Our New York – Italian menu is simple and delicious. Meats, fish, vegetables, fruits, herbs and dairy delivered daily by local suppliers. The restaurant vibe changes from a laid back sunrise through a buzzing sunset. A view like no other in Dublin, cityscape to countryside. No fuss, no formality, book a table and enjoy.




Sophie’s Bar is at the very heart of our rooftop restaurant. Pull up a stool and get comfortable at any time, day or night to take in the incredible views of the Dublin skyline while our amazing team of bartenders create a world-class cocktail for you.




Head out to our Rooftop Terrace to soak up the sun when it's hot, or wrap up in blankets under our heaters when it’s not.

    The food and staff were great. There was a dj in the rooftop which is great for drinks and pre-dinner but for the dinner it was a bit too loud. And the rooftop is great, but I will remember to book inside for cold nights.

    I made a reservation and on the booking site they said the only table available was outside. But when I went to check in there were loads of tables inside. We were freezing. We had a table for 4! No excuse.

    We had a lovely lunch and there was a lovely atmosphere in the place. Good staff attention etc but we spent the whole time (4 hours) swatting away tiny black flies, very annoying. Hopefully next time we return this issue will be fixed.

    As always it was a lovely evening. Despite accidental booking online for am instead of pm we were accommodated as close as possible to our preferred time. Lesson learned on my behalf 🙈 Food was delicious! Little blip with the main duck. We didn't know or recognise the pasta name and expected duck leg on a bed of veg or something. Again, our fault but still lovely!

    Had dinner here with my sister, we both got pizza’s and have to say food was 10/10. However, we were asked if we wanted to see dessert menus and we said says we waited about 10 minutes for the waitress to come back with the menu but we ended up having to ask someone else, we then waited another 15-20 minutes but no one ever came back to take our order or asked if we wanted any more drinks or even to top up our water so ended up just going to the till to pay. I would have said something if the restaurant was busy but wasn’t quite enough and lots of staff on just walking around aimlessly by the looks of it. I would absolutely recommend here for the food but the service really needs some improving.

    Such a shame to give Sophie’s such a low review. When we arrived we simply enquired if the reservation was for drinks or food as we couldn’t remember and we were happy either way. The host was immediately rude and defensive stating that if we don’t order food we will be charged €20 ahead and that this is clearly stated in the terms and conditions- this was fine as again, we were happy either way. We did not expect such a rude, aggressive and condescending tone and it really set a bad vibe for the evening ahead. We ordered some very average food and a few bottles of Prosecco but unfortunately we were so startled by the incredibly rude host, we didn’t stay long. Our waitress was lovely but again the host really overshadowed the whole experience. I definitely wouldn’t recommend people visiting.

    The menu didn't have anything gluten free on it. I asked the waitress what could be modified to gluten free. She read the menu to me. I already read it myself and could see that there was nothing GF on it. She then left the table and told me she could do anything with eggs GF. The selection on the menu was poor. Not one fish dish. The GF bread I did get tasted like cardboard. The potato cubes were burned and didnt taste good. They used to be very tasty. We asked the waitress if they had pineapple juice. The response was "I won't make any promises". It felt like we were an inconveince to her.

    Wow, I was absolutely blown away by this restaurant. After booking this for my mams 50th birthday dinner, I wasn’t expecting much however this restaurant blew us away. The food was amazing all three courses and so worth the value with huge portions. The staff couldn’t have been any nicer or helpful. The view from the bar was outstanding and the atmosphere in the bar was perfect. Would highly recommend this place for any occasion!!

    Great venue for a get together with the girls. Everyone enjoyed their food, chicken Caesar salad was really nice with a side of chipotle mayo Parmesan fries. Service friendly and efficient. Only complaint would be the heat, very warm and stuffy. Was helped a bit when they put the blinds down to provide shade from the sun which is blinding at this time of year. But a bit of cool air would have been appreciated. Would definitely go back though!
