Highly recommend avoca in ballsbridge. Food and service was the best and especially under difficult covid-19 circumstances.

Food was very good! Ordered the poached eggs, fries, yoghurt with fresh berries. All of high standard! However, quite overpriced for what you get.

Our table of four had a most ambient evening enhanced by the lovely dishes and Waterford Estate vino.
Sadden to hear that evening dining has come to an end at Fodder.

We went in for a quick business meeting.
Found a nice quiet table.
The only pity was that none of us were very hungry and just had coffees and some specialist bread. There were lots of tempting food offerings available.

The service in the restaurant was great. The staff were so friendly and accommodating. However, the food was way overpriced. Much too expensive for what was served.

The restaurant had a lovely buzz. Front of house staff started off really strongly ..very friendly and efficient but seemed to peter out as a shift changed?
The power assisted closing doors make for a big cold draught on a winters day but we were facilitated with a table move so that was great. Food was lovely...the pizzas for the kids were yummy. Will be back!

The staff in Fodder are some of the best I’ve experienced in a restaurant in Dublin. From the welcome by the hosts to the waiting staff they are all so attentive, friendly & pleasant. We have a young child & they are so great with her making her feel welcome & nothing is a problem.

The new Avoca Fodder is a bit of a secret — for now. We often go to the Suffolk Street Cafe, and Fodder takes it to all the next level. It’s a lovely dining room with excellent food and friendly service. Highly recommended!
