Welcome to Juanitos, we serve soul food, LA style in the heart of Dublin with an Asian fusion twist! Amigos, enemigos and lovers welcome!

We also have a brand new TAPAS dining area called EIVISSA - IBIZA - in our beautifully decorated laneway serving delicious hot and cold TAPAS and PINTXOS.

We are a very popular, busy, fast-paced restaurant.

We would love to give the dining opportunity for as many guests as possible that is why we have to cancel your booking after 10min of the appointed time in the case of a no-show.

Thanks for your understanding.

Our family of four enjoyed the restaurant, the usual choice of food and the decor. My only complain is that for some reason some cocktails are not on the menu, margaritas, but we noticed everyone around us were having some!
We would definitely recommend it!

A nice vibe for a Saturday lunch snack in between shopping with the girls so involved a sneaky cocktail too!
Lots of nice servers who might have been a little too eager to clear but very friendly! A kind of tasty fast food idea - street food but tasty. Great funky music!

I really like this restaurant the food is absolutely delicious and great value for money. We were hoping the Sunday Brunch menu would be available as it looks great on the website . That said what we did order was fab - pork bowl , duck bao buns and loaded chilli fries absolutely fab. Just great flavours fresh food and some really nice spritz cocktails. Staff are great too. Only negative was that it was rather chilly as there is an open space out the back so the breeze went straight through from the front door. Restrooms were clean but nothing special perhaps an opportunity for improvement there. It certainly won’t stop us returning we will just dress warmer the next time.

Worst meal I have had in Dublin in a long time. All starters are from frozen and the mains were awful.

Food was fabulous, service was pretty decent! overall great and would definitely eat there again. If I had to pick a fault with anything it would be the temperature in the restaurant, it was cold so make sure to wear a cosy jumper!

Fairly average food, limited menu. Nice chips though! Music far too loud to talk to each other. Door was open so was very cold. Staff nice and accommodating. Toilets not great at all. Overall was kind of disappointing as I had really been looking forward to this.

It was too busy and the tables are too close to each other. Let alone the pandemic, it is too packed, like sardines that increases the noise level.

The only let down was the bathroom which was quite dirty and unkept.

The restaurant we empty with 4 staff on and the service was extremely slow. The food was cold when it came out and when we told the server she said she would get the manager. We seen her telling him and he walked in the opposite direction and ignored us until we actually managed to catch his attention 10 minutes later. Wouldn't go back there even if I was being paid to.

Very nice restaurant with a good selection of drinks and food. We had bao buns which were very good and also the dutch sausages and the spring rolls were tasty. The loaded fries were a little dry and not as good as the other dishes, but this is just a minor issue.
The service was very attentive. The waitresses were very nice and they took good care of us.
Great value for money

The food and drinks were really nice, however, it was uncomfortably warm inside and service was very slow and the first waitress forgot about our drinks order. Would possibly go back for the food.

The food was amazing! Some of nicest tapas I’ve had in a long time and lots of veggie options. Staff were all super friendly and helpful. We got a jug of sangria which was the only disappointment, it was a really small jug and it was super sweet, it wasn’t that nice. But we got a delicious cocktail after which we really enjoyed.

The food was amazing, our server was absolutely lovely (didn't catch her name, but it was her first day so I hope she settles in well!) and the service was quick from the kitchen too.
The general atmosphere was great, and all staff from front of house onwards were fantastic. Can't wait to try more of the menu because everything was so good - great veggie options too!
