mains dishes were tiny, wasn't expecting that. Flavorsome, but left feeling hungry still. Bacon Terrine should have two pieces of toast - one barely covered 1/3 of the terrine - also contradicts the explanation given to us when we arrived about the theme of sharing plates at HOST. Lovely food but didn't feel the 'value' if I'm honest, didn't see what all the fuss has been about.

While generally tasty, the miserly portions of simple food for over 100 euro for 2 was not worth it. Also, we were both sick after eating there. We defintely won't be returning.

This visit was my 3/4 th this year.
My guests and I were once again trilled with the experience . This in my view is one of the best restaurants in Dublin. Only problem now is that it’s getting harder to get a reservation. Well done

Still my favorite restaurant in Dublin. Couldn’t fault a single thing about it. The food is outstanding and ridiculous reasonably priced. Can’t wait for my next visit.

Really enjoyed our meal. Waiter helpfully suggested we share the beef (400g) which was a great idea. Sides and main course all delicious. Will be back. Only criticism acoustics in restaurant not good so noise levels a bit too loud.

Second time to eat in Host. At last visit it was excellent but the room was cold ( lady beside us sat with her coat on ! ). This time no such issue. The food is fantastic. Looking forward to going back.

I have been dying to try Host as I had heard so many amazing reviews! Well it certainly didn’t disappoint. The moment we arrived, it was warm and inviting. The staff are super friendly and helpful and the food is absolutely delicious. I am just about to book it again for a girls night. Highly recommend. Thank you for such a gorgeous evening ☺️

Food and service were wonderful, and value for money. The only quibble is the noise level - had same experience last time, and it’s offputting. We found ourselves shouting at each other to be heard.

Disappointed to be seated at the high table by the door. My husband & myself have eaten there loads of times & really enjoyed it, the food is super. On this occasion we brought friends who had not been before so it was embarrassing that they were frozen for the evening (door is opening constantly) & one of our friends had to put back on their coat! Staff said there was nothing they could do.

I can not recommend this beautiful little restaurant enough. Myself and my partner had dinner here on Tuesday evening. From start to finish the staff are an example of how you should be treated in a Dublin restaurant. The place was rammed but yet all three floor staff were smiling, happy and beyond helpful.
We will most definitely be coming back for dinner again.
