This was our first visit and we will definitely be going back! The restaurant has great ambiance and our meals were lovely. The tasting menu is reasonably priced and all 3 courses were excellent. Our waiter Zuzana was fabulous and picked out the most beautiful bottle of white wine which complemented our meal wonderfully.

It is extremely disappointing that Sole separate VAT off their menu prices and that it isn’t fully clear until you pay the full bill that the prices quoted on the menu are exclusive of VAT.
This type of system works well in USA where people are used to sales tax added on afterwards but it is NOT the norm in Ireland. It left a very bad feeling for us that the final bill was much higher than we expected.

SOLE Seafood & Grill
Responded on 24 December 2020

Dear Anonymous, We are very sorry to read you review, however you interpretation of our billing system is untrue. If you take a closer look at your bill you will see that the tax breakdown is already incorporated into the bill total, and matches the prices on the menu. We would be more than happy to go through the bill in further detail, or provide you with a copy if you have disposed of the original. Kind regards, Victor Nedelea, General Manager.

This was the tastiest meal out my fiance and I have had in a very long time. Couldn't fault the service, the wait staff were on the ball. After we were seated we had someone talk us through the menu and we were given time to make our choices without being rushed. Empty glasses were taken promptly and when we finished each coarse so we're the empty plates. Our wine glasses were promptly filled also. The food was amazing. Very high standard. I even tried my first oyster. Will be back again for sure.

Nice atmosphere despite the restrictions. The menu was limited for the same reason so dont think we saw this place at it's best as the venue is forced to take extra precautions and limits service options. On the food, the oysters were great for starter and the scallops. The main courses , lobster and steak were OK only. One of the deserts was disappointing - chocolate brownie that was dry. Christmas pudding was good. Overall quite pricey for what what was average enough food but if you ordered the seafood tower, I expect that's where their experise is. (that was 50 euro extra for 2 people)
