Sunday brunch is always busy, but the service was prompt & attentive. Plus they do great sausages!

Nice atmospheric spot but service let's this place down. Was here for an early bird, the place was empty and it still took them almost 10 minutes to seat us, despite having a booking.
Early bird food options are great, although the supplement for the cheesecake dessert is a little bit much? Fair enough having a supplement on the steak for the mains but when did a slice of cake start to cost extra? Also took 27 minutes from the time of ordering dessert for it to arrive at the table. Cheesecake is absolutely fabulous here though so worth ordering.

The food was awful - 3 out of 4 dishes were very poor. Sardines were on soggy bread, swordfish was hard. Asked for fries and was given potato cubes and told that how you do fries. Gambas were good, rigatoni with sausage wasn't edible as sauce and sausage were near burnt. Service was so so, under staffed I would say. For prices paid, this was not value. Also, our 2 person table was too close to the tables beside us where their/our conversations were within earshot of each other. V disappointed as we chose this place for a special occasion.

Have heard great for brunch so tried for dinner. Staff were friendly but not attentive, drinks and starter orders took a long time to come. Had sardine bruschetta and hake gnocchi. Food was very ordinary and not very appetising. Big portions but too expensive for a overcoooked food. Bathroom view of kitchen was very cool.

Lovely for Brunch. However, I was disappointed as I ordered the 'Avacado on toast' which included pesto, mozzerella, tomatoes and poach eggs however I did not receive the avacado. This is very misleading as 'Avacado on toast' is in the name of the dish however is not in the discribtion or on the plate.

Food quality was very poor. I have being in this restaurant years ago and food was of better quality. But we went on sat night and very dissapointed, Food very very average now and all dishes we were served was overpowered by pesto and rocket. Friends have had the same experience lately

The starters could do with a bit of work. The clam chowder was a bit acidic and the calamari was a bit dry. The corn fed chicken was beautiful.

I took my sister here whilst she was visiting Dublin, and it didn't disappoint. The food was unreal (and satisfied all my hungover requirements), and I would totally recommend the Coco Pops French Toast. We had a few cocktails here too, which were reasonably priced and very tasty too!

Will definitely be back, and have already recommended to a few friends as the ideal spot for a Saturday/Sunday brunch.

Service was friendly and efficient. Lively spot more suited to young crowd as music is loud. Tables are comfortable.

Great vibe, good food and nice staff. Just thought service was a little slow with one barman making cocktails and also serving beer. Just thought on a Saturday they might consider an extra body to do wine and beer, while the other one does the cocktails??

Had the worst Italian dinner in Ireland!
The drinks were bad but above all their pasta was not eatable!

Mine was over cooked, no flavour and stuffed with garlic as an attempt to savour it.

We also order pasta pasta with sausage and this was so so so bad! First of all if you are putting sausages in your menu don’t use chorizo! Chorizo is not sausage! If you are cooking Italian then use proper ingredients. The dish was so saulty and overall so bad then neither of us finished them.

I can’t recommend this place for Italian food, perhaps they are good with meat but definitely stay away from anything that looks Italian on their menu!

Very good food and big portions. We were 6 persons in the group but due to allergies I was the only one who did not drink red wine. I was told though by the others that the wine was a tad warmer than they preferred it to be. But the super nice service from the waiters and the coolness of the place balance it all. All and all a recommendable place! :))

The crabcakes are amazing and there is so much food on the plate - I could barely finish the whole thing! The brunch options are plentiful and great value for money as the portions are very generous. Clean plates and smiles all round :)

Food quality and service can’t be faulted. Portions are a little bit on the large side with some dishes but at least you won’t go hungry. Cocktails were really good. Would definitely go back again.

I have been to San Lorenzos many times it is my go to brunch spot for both a date day and a meet up with the girls. I usually go for a more savoury option, full breakfast or bagels but I opted for the coco pops french toast this time and I have to say it was delicious. Everything from the presentation to the staff was second to none! Will definitely be back to try more sweet brunch items off the menu

Have been to San Lorenzo's for a few meals now and can say that every time the service has been great with friendly servers. The food is delicious - the tomato soup is beautiful and the hake was full of flavour and perfectly cooked. The early bird is great value for money.

Despite the fact a lot of people had booking when I arrived to the restaurant. There was a long queue waiting to he seated. The door area is tiny so queing wasn't ideal as people are trying to leave. We were left waiting 20 mins for our table even though I've booked it , the staff seemed all over the place and you couldn't talk to anyone as i was waiting

Love the staff. Although we had a child with us and it is relatively small, his high chair wasn’t a problem, he was wandering around and they all chatted and played with him - despite how busy they were. Lovely, lovely food and service. Different brunch options, spoilt for choice
