We had a great dinner in the Larder house. Vegetarian options were limited but the meat eaters enjoyed themselves and prices were very reasonable. Would definitely go back.

What a great find. We celebrated my husbands birthday in the Larder Restaurant.
The staff was super friendly, funny and helpful. The food was amazing, we had the Beef Carpaccio and Crab starter followed by the duck and the sirloin steak.

I would definitely return again.

My husband and I had a one night layover in Dublin. We are not into the bar scene so we chose this restaurant for its quiet yet city center location. The restaurant had a nice quite ambience and we were sat by the window with a nice view ( a request we made on open table which was honoured). However, service was not as expected. The waitress did not offer to review the specials with us. When asked she only listed the items without a detailed description with how they were cooked or dressed. Stay away from the duck, over cooked. Although the restaurant was not busy at the time, we felt like we were chasing the waitress all night to get us drinks then the bill etc. overall nice restaurant but feels like the staff were new or the restaurant was new and it did not have the workflow or the dinner cook times down yet.

I was there for their Early Bird menu and it drew quite a crowd. Book early to avoid disappointment. The menu had more than adequate choices across the courses and each was delicious - I'd particularly recommend the Hake if available. Cheesecake was simply glorious. Attentive staff and the whole experience was excellent. One of the best places in Dublin!

l really liked it here. I met some colleagues here for lunch. We were given a nice table in the corner and served by extremely friendly staff. The seafood chowder is well above average and not swamped in creamy gloop and the salads are great. The main thing was the excellent value and quality in a hugely over-priced city. The Larder is well worth a visit.

We visited The Larder for our 2nd wedding Anniversary and I’m so glad we did. Being a quiet Monday we had the choice of seats and we picked the window seat, which was so cosy, looking at a rainy evening go by in Dublin. The staff we’re very friendly and relaxed. Some nice tunes playing in the background set a very chilled and ambient atmosphere. We went for the early bird menu, which had a great selection at a really good price. Food was served very quickly and I have to say tasted amazing. Crayfish starter followed by an amazingly creamy Gnocchi dish, all washed down by a very, very nice glass of Pinot Noir. Quite stuffed, so ended up sharing a desert....Ladies of Seville, YUM !!

So happy to find this little gem. Will definitely be going back to work my way through the menu !!

We were greeted and shown to our table promptly. We had a super table which was private but still part of the lively atmosphere. I'm very glad we didn't have one of the tables in the middle of the room which seemed squashed in. The food was really excellent, well presented and tasty. The service was fine. Perhaps a little brusque at their busiest but overall courteous and friendly. Definitely recommended.

Each in a group of 4 ordered the Early Bird, which discounts a starter and an entree (and dessert if you have room). Soup was especially good.

Great value brunch. Went for veggie breakfast, Delish and I'm not vegetarian. Waitress was so lovely, friendly. In fact the 3 girls working were super. Asked for coffee in mug and although they didn't have a mug, offered coffee in latte glass. Perfect solution. Gone to a few places for brunch with friends but the larder has it nailed. Maybe invest in a few mugs ideal for brunch?

The service and quality of the food is excellent in this restaurant. I would highly recommend it. The one thing I didn't like about this was just a personal thing that they added 10% service charge to the bill and there were 4 of us dining. I prefer to tip based on the experience and quality of service I receive.

Otherwise hightly recommend it.

Im Ausgehzentrum von Dublin gelegen. Das Ambiente ist nicht so schön, wie auf der Webseite dargestellt. Das Essen war gut, aber nichts besonderes. Wir habrn in Dublin günstiger und besser gegessen. Das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis stimmt nicht. Die Bedienung freundlich und hilfsbereit. Leider wurde der Abend jäh durch eine nicht abzustellenden Alarmanlage beendet. Das es dafür keine Entschuldigung gab, ist enttäuschend.

Very nice place, great value for money, friendly staff and an excellent atmosphere. The only issue was with the specific seats we were given. It was right by the window, which was excellent, but the two armchairs used are far too big for the area. They were pushed up right against the table, so getting in/out of the seat was far to tricky. Pushing them back was not an option as you'd slide down the "entrance step" which was just behind one of the seats. And having them so close to the table meant no leg room, the leg of the table was completely in the way. (Myself and my wife are relatively small people). They were great to enjoy the coffee in at the end, but not comfortable to eat at, back started aching quite early on.

All in all, very good experience, great food and friendly staff! The red armchairs by the window have to go!

Thanks again!

The best chicken wings in Dublin - this place is so underrated. The white chocolate cheesecake is delicious, the wine is good and the early bird is fantastic value. Staff are always kind and attentive. This is our favourite place in Dublin city centre and we always choose the Larder to celebrate our special days. Thank you.
