Afternoon Tea | South City Centre, Dublin 2

The staff were fantastic! I had a few dietary requirements that they accommodated with ease and all the food and tea was fantastic. It really is an indulgent treat and was a special way to celebrate my husbands 30th. It’s not something I’d normally do but I did mention it was a special birthday and they played Happy Birthday on the piano and bought out a plate with small patisserie items and a candle, with happy birthday written in melted chocolate. It was a subtle and classy celebration and although he blushed, he really appreciated the gesture. We really enjoyed our time there and if we get to be in Dublin again for a special occasion we would love to go again. More

1900 Bar & Restaurant
1900 Bar & Restaurant

££££
Irish | South City Centre, Dublin 2

During our Dublin stay we looked for a highly rated restaurant that wasn’t going to be too pricy. The 1900 Bar & Restaurant caught my eye because the ratings were so high. I can tell you why they rate so high. Keep in mind I live in Los Angeles, California with a multitude of good restaurants and innovative bars. Furthermore, I dined in Boston and London before landing on Dublin. The service was top-tier and truly beat any restaurant I could mention for service, a dying industry benefit that is certainly relevant to be sustainable. We had the privilege of Jon Paul helping us with food and drinks. He was personable and enhanced our dining experience. He was a seasoned professional. Even a random waiter made sure all was well. The prices were “reasonable,” if not a steal for the value. The filet mignon was about $23 for an 8 oz (what!!!), and we ordered pea snaps and beans that were super fresh and not over cooked. The presentation was gorgeous as in an art form. Not only did Jon Paul check on us to make sure we were happy, but, Kevin, the man who seemingly has his sights set on an upward trajectory for the 1900 made sure everything was as we expected. We finished with amazing desserts and that chocolate thing will stay in my dreams. Dining is an experience and our evening was fantastic. The decor is charming too. This was a great find. Well done!!!! More

Really good friendly service. Great house sparkling water provided when we sat. The 3 of us ordered crab and eggs, minestrone soup, duck bao buns and also a signature fried chicken and pancakes to share. It was all really good food. We had iced coffees and the dessert of coffee ice cream and the apple fritters. I felt we tried a lot of the menu and none of it disappoints. A great spot to linger over a long lunch as there was no one rushing us out. I’ll defo go back. More

Wine Bar | South City Centre, Dublin 2

The basement venue is a 'classic' Friday night meet up place (other nights too of course, but Friday feels especially magical and warm!) for wine and light food in the basement setting. Superb ambience (if pretty loud as voice echo, so don't come expecting a very quite space, becaus it isn't). The starters while not cheap are the best value and extremely tasty and the fish soup is incredible. The wine selection by the glass in surprisingly limited although three of the wines I had by the glass tasted incredible. The prices per bottle are very expensive and don't come up expecting a cheaper, entry level bottle because you won't get on. They all kick in from €40-50. The staff are lovely and low key. More

Style over substance - Sophie's is not. It gives everything you want from a sleek, stylish and modern dining experience - beautiful scenery and top-notch food. What I most like about Sophie's is the unpretentious menu - of course, you can have scallops to start and a pepperoni pizza finished with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce! Why not? More places in Dublin should be like Sophie's. More

I absolutely love Pacino's and would happily choose it for lunch or dinner regularly when meeting up with friends. The food is amazing, the ambiance is lively and the staff are wonderful. On our most recent visit on a Saturday evening we had a really lovely waitress looking after us - she was very attentive, chatty and brilliant for helping with menu choices (we couldn't decide!!). The only problem appeared to be a "glitch" with our order so we ended up waiting an inordinate amount if time for our main courses to arrive. That being said the m'aitre d apologised profusely once the problem came to his attention and it was generously reflected in our bill. Truth be told we enjoyed the food even more when it did arrive.

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
