Charlotte Quay is one of my favourite restaurants in Dublin. On this occasion we went for the early bird menu, which is very good value. The food was delicious and the service was excellent.

we met with 3 friends for pre theatre show and menu at 6pm. Met by lovely waitress explained the menu and ordered food and wine. Gorgeous beef cheek starter and fab Sicilian wine, unfortunately the mains didn't arrive till 7pm after explaining show started at 730! The lovely waitress did give us a top up of free wine because of our delay and I must say the Cod was Devine. Pity we had to hurry off as gorgeous place. I will be back again for the 3rd time

We would have preferred a brighter table and did ask. We were given a window table but in a very dark area. The prawn pile piled were really overcooked. We had asked for the minimum butter but it was VERY buttery. Even though the dish was returned only half eaten no one enquired about it. The mains were very good. The scallop starter was find but very overpriced for 3 scallops. The tables in the bright space were still vacant when we left

It is a great place to go for a drink and dinner, you have a nice view over the basin and towards the theatre. Service and food were great, what do you want more?

As my local "eatery" Charlotte Quay ticks all the boxes. Convenient (and stunning) location, very friendly service, excellent food and good value. Charlotte Quay is the kind of place I enjoy going back to - where there is always a warm welcome.

This is the 2nd time I have eaten here just before a show in the Gaeity. I truly cannot fault the place. The food is excellent the staff are so helpful and courteous and the setting on the Quay, what's not to like. I think I will adopt this place as a regular for me. Just love it.

No real service today, very slow for been the o Kt two in the restaurant. Left sitting for ages, food was slightly incorrect to what we ordered. Which was disappointing as we were the only order in the restaurant at that time.

Lovely view, food was nice a tasty. Service was OK. The only issue was, that even though we ordered from the pre theatre menu, it took about 50 minutes to arrive. This a reservation at 6pm was too late for a 7:30 show.

The menu showed on this website isn't what was on the real one. In fact, the most affordable mains were not present on the real menu.
Therefore we spent way more than expected.
The waiter was also a bit pushy for tips.

But food was delicious. We really enjoyed it.

What a fabulous evening! The food was exceptional, the staff couldn't do enough to make us comfortable although they did forget my glass of wine which obviously caused some trauma after a long week! All dishes were well thought out, beautifully cooked and accompanied by delightful vegetables.

The only small fault I could possibly find was the cheese board was not great. A mild waxy cheddar, a pile of what looked/tasted like ricotta and some nice blue cheese with biscuits and a small pot of somthing sweet and sticky! The chef could've done so much more with local produce and added some veggies (celery, figs, even dull old grapes!)....

Otherwise a fabulous evening, thank you. Will definitely come back.

We had a lovely evening at Charlotte Quay. The food was really good and beautifully served. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful. The wine and Irish coffee were delicious. We enjoyed the view of the seagulls and swans in the Grand Canal while the sun was setting. Perfect choice for our last evening in Dublin!

Atmosfera piacevole ed accogliente, location molto bella. Dopo giorni di pub e ristoranti caotici abbiamo apprezzato tantissimo questo locale sobrio, tranquillo, con piatti equilibrati ma saporiti. Abbiamo assaggiato il filetto di orata su verdure ed un ribeye steak, entrambi molto buoni.
Se siete a Dublino e cercate un posto piacevole, lontano dalle orde di turisti, il Charlotte Quay è ideale.

Nice restaurant and setting. The food was delicious however the service wasn’t great, the waitress’ didn’t seem too fussed about making an effort to make our experience special.

The friendly staff receives you with a smile and serves you with flair. We had a very nice and relaxed evening. We were not rushed in to ordering, could take our time. The food was very well prepared. The cod fish was lovely.

Service was truly appalling - took almost half an hour to get a menu after waiting 20 mins prior to be shown to our table. Really disappointing since the location is perfect.

The starters were poor and portions were too small for the price. The duck breast was slithers of duck. Wouldn’t recommend. The mains were lovely and the desert was good. Overall I think it was over overpriced for what it was. Staff were friendly. Lovely setting and views. Music was being turned on and off throughout.
