Three of us went on Wednesday evening - none of us had been before. It was fabulous on all fronts. Service was outstanding. The menu does need some explanation and the waiter took lots of time to explain it. Food was really delicious. It is more a sharing experience that individually plated dinners but we loved this. We will be back. Thank you Host

I was recommended Host as a nice place to bring Clients. I would recommend it to anyone especially if they appreciate really fantastic food. The atmosphere is casual but professional. We had the tasting menu which was excellent value for money and truly superb. I am trying to think of an excuse to go back! Don’t hesitate to dine here. The best food I’ve had in Dublin.

Absolutely super staff, and the food was divine! Only feedback I would give is that the night we were there we were seated on high table near door, which was a little breezy at times. For the winter months it might be worth considering a curtain or something.

Apart from that- faultless! Loved it and will most certainly be back and recommending to friends.

Well done!

Susan.

HOST is a wonderful neighbourhood restaurant serving delicious food at reasonable prices. I love their small plates and the interesting combinations of flavours. The Chefs menu is highly recommended and the house red from the Douro at 27 euro is lovely. I enjoyed every morsel and will be back for more.

One of the best meals you can get in Dublin as far as I'm concerned!

Brilliant service from informed and friendly staff, a great atmosphere, and most importantly some unbelievably delicious food. The chef's taster menu is an absolute winner and is really great value considering the outstanding quality of the 6 or 7 plates of food you're treated to.

10/10, have eaten here before and will 100% be eating here again!

Had a delicious birthday meal in Host this weekend - the food is amazing and great value. The staff are so welcoming and friendly which really makes the whole experience great. The only downside was the noise, it was so loud we couldn't hear each other but I know that's out of the restaurants control. We were at the window which may have amplified the noise - try and get a different seat!
