We love Bresson. It is special, very cosmopolitan , with an energetic vibe. The decor is very French as is the food. A real treat.

Staff and food was amazing! Loved the christmas menu as well. Safe covid friendly. The only thing I’d say is the staff weren’t socially distancing from eachother, but not sure if that’s possible or not ?

Amazing experience !

Excellent food as always, service was prompt but we didn’t feel rushed. Ate outside in the covered and heated courtyard which was comfortable and provided a nice relaxed ambiance. Hopefully we’ll be back again soon

The restaurant is modern French,the taste is good, but adjusted for the Irish clients. Not the traditional French cuisine. We had lunch there,the price is fair.

As usual staff very attentive and so willing to please, regardless of request. I also love the way they make you so welcome, especially if you have been there recently, which I had.

Food excellent as usual, consistent in quality, my favourite eating out venue at the moment.

Keep with the good work...............

Sadly - was expecting more, we were very rushed from the moment we entered, barely had starter finished & main course was on top of us, we had to ask to hold off on dessert. We were only 30 mins seated & both were served. Waitress was lovely. Food was just ok, have eaten here a good few times & always loved it, this time wasn't particularly impressed.

Always a treat. Excellent food with the highest quality ingredients. Tremendous attentive and friendly service. I love the ambience and the semi-casual atmosphere. Bresson is a must every time I return to Ireland.

Just a line to thank everyone working at Bresson during what was an extremely difficult time, at the peak of COVID and the start of the Christmas holiday season. All your attention to COVID awareness was noticed and much appreciated.

Johnny Frey, Dublin and Napa, CA

Good food, reasonable value, reasonably good service. Thought main course options a little limited for a set menu but what we had was very good. loved the mushroom starter and the cheese board was very good.

French 'brasserie' style decoration with warm touches, good and really attentive service (the highlight for us) which adds to the charm, traditional French food (not 'nouvelle cuisine') with average/ok execution, nice wines, very expensive menus.

Food was too expensive. €65 fixed price for 3 courses. Verging on rip-off pricing. Taking advantage of the current demand surge to win-back some lost profits.
