    We were put at the worst positioned table beside the door to the kitchen even though other tables were available so we had to ask to move. Food was average. I got the linguine, prawn and nduja pasta, it was very oily, croquettes were a bit dry too.

    Layla’s restaurant is a great place to enjoy dinner and drinks, there is plenty space between the tables, it has a nice view and friendly staff. I book the palace for anniversary and they even provide a nice chocolate cake and ice cream as present for us, the place is good if you want to enjoy all this along with a romantic sunset

    It has a great view, even on cloudy days, so a nice spot for that. Food is good and average price for dublin. Unfortunately they told me they did not accept Amex but took an Amex payment from another table. Quite annoying since I’ve always used this credit card, not sure if management changed hands.

    We had a wonderful brunch at Layla's. It was our last morning in Ireland and my whole family agreed that it was our favourite meal of our trip. Everyone working there was friendly and kind. The service was great, as was the coffee and food. We would definitely return next time we visit Dublin.

    Myself and my son had lunch on 4th May. It took 5 minutes to get us seated and then a further 20 mins to place our order once we received the menus. The staff were very friendly and nice but there appeared to be not enough staff. It was half an hour before we received our meal. The restaurant itself is very nice great views, and the there are plenty of gluten free options. Overall a nice experience but perhaps they were having a staff shortage the day we were there.

    Words can't describe the beauty of this restaurant. The location in dublin's south gives beautiful scenery to get to the venue; however, the rooftop view is the real star. The ambiance is a mix of a steampunk vibe meets natural woodsy and warm lighting. Service was quick, and our server "Panos" was funny and friendly. The food was extremely reasonably priced for its quality, and the signature cocktails were elegant and delicious. If given the opportunity, I would be coming back. 11/10 would recommend!!

    We had a really nice time at Layla's as we always do. We love the ambience and the staff are always lovely. Food is delicious and value for money in this day and age.
