My husband and I were in Dublin from Connecticut. We were staying near by and walked by the Rotisserie a few times. We decided to go after reading the reviews and needing something besides fish & chips or Irish stew ( which we love) We shared the spicy nachos with chili beef and the meat platter, strip loin steak, chicken fillet, BBQ chicken skewer. All were fantastic. Would go back again. Service was very good. Very clean, could see the kitchen from the dining table. FYI Americans, the food is excellent in Ireland!!! More

Kudos to the service staff, excellent service and great knowledge of the wines "on the shelf" Only downside, and it's only a minor one, no soft furnishings makes it very loud. But one glass of wine in you and that doesn't matter anymore. Love this place. More

Great place to go for some quick food, but when I arrived they had no information on my booking and had never heard of Open Table. I got lucky that a table was coming free when I arrived, but it could potentially have ruined the evening (the people in 2 minutes after me had to wait 45 minutes for a table). Good beer, good food and a relaxed atmosphere. I don't know how they ended up on this website, and neither do they by all accounts. Someone needs to address that. More

Barbecue | South City Centre, Dublin 2

Who are the PitMasters, It all started as weekly BBQ’s with Beer and meat which quickly developed into an obsession? For James and Keith, the idea was simple, to use Real Fire, Real smoke to make Real BBQ, through American style. They pride themselves on using locally sourced Oak wood, Irish Farmed premium meat and locally butchered. We have developed all our own Dry Rubs, sauces and marinades, all made by the PitMasters and a closely guarded secret, all our meat is smoked using Irish Oak Wood and only wood in our custom-built American style Smoker for up to 12 hours. We specialize in Ribs, Brisket, Pork and Chicken, all smoked for a very unique flavor.

So if you enjoy BBQ, grab a beer and the beats will always be rocking.

On the plus side the food was excellent, service was friendly, the payment system was flexible (cash, card or room), we had a private booth which I liked and price was reasonable. On the minus side the decor was a bit soulless, one of my side orders was incorrect but I took it, I though service was slow to begin, but this was colored by the fact that we were going to a show and I was conscious of time, (wouldn't have been an issue otherwise).

Afternoon Tea | South City Centre, Dublin 2

Overall I really enjoyed the afternoon tea in the Radisson. However, I booked through Open Table and unfortunately when I arrived I was told I had no reservation. A lovely female worker made it her business to find out exactly what was going on (I feel Open Table hadn't been checked for that day and therefore the reservation was not put into their reservations). Once everything was clarified- we were treated so well with such a high level of service. Everything from the food, prosecco, tea/ coffee was lovely. My partner was awkward with his requests asking for things that were not a part of the fixed menu and they obliged him without any issues. The hotel was extremely busy and there was a private party taking place near us- however, all staff members were on top form and served our table with impressive timing and professionalism. I was very impressed with all of the staff and obviously the only critique was- they need to check their Open Table reservations everyday. More

Do you love Italy, the food, the wine, the people? Now all you have to do is visit our Italian Restaurant, Il Caffe di Napoli on Westland Row, Dublin 2 and you are immediately immersed in the sounds the flavours and slightly frantic atmosphere typical of the very best of Italian restaurants. Il Caffe di Napoli has been a Dublin favourite for over 10 years now. As you enter the caffe on the ground floor and head down the stairs into the restaurant you instantly feel the warm comfy atmosphere envelope you. From the view of the fully functioning Italian (open plan) kitchen, the natural dark wood table and chairs the Ristorante will have you thinking you’re seated at the home of a stylish friend’s house in Via Marechiaro in Naples. Every dish at il Caffe Di Napoli is made from authentic Neapolitan produce, cooked using traditional recipes and the best quality ingredients that can be found from the celebrated Neapolitan region of Campania.More
