Italian
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.

    Good location and views of city. Nice food but disappointing deserts. Vanilla Caramel Sundae with whipped cream and honeycomb was actually a bowl of 3 scoops of icecream a tiny drizzle of caramel sauce and a light dusting of honeycomb. Sad end to our meal. Service was a little slow but we were a group of 8 so expected some delays but main course and drinks in between were quite slow. Our waiter was very good though so can’t blame him.

    We have been going to Sophies for many years, I love the room and the view. This time the food was really poor. Out Pizza was totally tasteless, the Gnocchi was strange and not good at all and the steak was just ok. The Negroni was not great, there was no Peroni available. The staff were friendly but not very attentive. The table was sticky when we sat down, our main course arrived before the starter plates were cleared. We had to ask for the table to be cleaned a long while after the main plate were taken away (chips and sauce spilled). The ice-cream Sunday was pretty boring with very little sauce. It was really expensive for such a poor experience, really the food was dreadful. It is so disappointing because we really like the place.

    Pros: Great cocktails. Beautiful ambiance. Cons: Food was average at best. 34€ for a steak that I could barely cut through using a steak knife is unacceptable. Wait staff took our order and never came back to fill our water even when stopping at nearby tables. I would go back again but only for drinks in the future.

    We enjoyed the restaurant and ambiance. Service was remarkably inattentive - our server barely checked on us and it was hard to get her attention. When we did, we often had to ask for things twice, with a long wait in between each request. But if you’re not in a rush and don’t mind long waits for attention it was a nice place to spend an evening.

    Got seafood linguine.. very bland, no herbs at all in the sauce, just tomato, very little seafood in it.. a fine meal at an average price, but a ripoff for what it was at the price it was.. my friend had the same experience where they got a medium rare requested steak cooked to medium. Dessert was great though, and cocktails were nice but not 13 euro nice

    We had a really lovely morning here last Sunday for my husband's birthday. We brought our four kids aged 11-17. They loved it too. Staff were efficient, warm and friendly. Kids had full Irish and, while they were very generous portions, they still scoffed most of it. It is a little pricey and there is no children's menu per se but my kids got a kick out of the ambience and the views. For a special occasion it was great.

    It was still lovely but I was so upset to be sat at the bar strip instead of an actual table when I had booked 2 weeks in advance and also payed a deposit and requested a nice booth. I arrived and was told I didn't have a booking even thought I payed for a deposit, got many confirmation emails and texts and confirmed on all. For some reason it wasn't there? Very disappointing as it was for an important anniversary.
