A glasshouse restaurant, where the weather is our wallpaper. We serve breakfast and dinner 7 days a week. We do lunch on weekdays and brunch at the weekend.




Our New York – Italian menu is simple and delicious. Meats, fish, vegetables, fruits, herbs and dairy delivered daily by local suppliers. The restaurant vibe changes from a laid back sunrise through a buzzing sunset. A view like no other in Dublin, cityscape to countryside. No fuss, no formality, book a table and enjoy.




Sophie’s Bar is at the very heart of our rooftop restaurant. Pull up a stool and get comfortable at any time, day or night to take in the incredible views of the Dublin skyline while our amazing team of bartenders create a world-class cocktail for you.




Head out to our Rooftop Terrace to soak up the sun when it's hot, or wrap up in blankets under our heaters when it’s not.

    I specifically asked for the side salad that comes with the steak to come WITHOUT cheese, because I hate cheese. I said it like three times to the waitress. Guess what - the salad came with cheese, despite the waitress saying it would not come with cheese. Apart from that, we didn't appreciate that the waitress that came with the card machine asked us if we wanted to leave a tip. Considering this is Ireland, not the United States, we felt a bit pressured to leave a tip. It was uncomfortable. If I want to tip the restaurant/waitress, I will say and do so myself, thanks. Other than that, the place was a bit noisy but it wasn't too bad. The food was pretty good, although a bit pricey all things considered.

    It was busier than we expected so energetic definitely covers the noise level but at our table it was not problematic and we were about hear each other well. I had selected birthday as the occasion and didn't expect anything to be done with it but at dessert my girlfriend received a lovely complimentary dessert with a happy birthday chocolate and candle. We were very happily surprised. The food itself was delicious, highly recommend the ravioli brasato (we both had it and Loved it). The wait staff were also lovely and my only regret is that I neglected to tip as I thought the option would come up during card payment but it would have been before. I intend to go back soon and rectify that on my next visit. 5/5, highly recommend!

    Sophie is a beautiful place but the service can be better, i dinner there for my boyfriends surprise birthday in the 19th of April, I was running a bit late so I called the restaurant to notify them that I will be there soon but I don’t like the way I was spoken to at all one of the said « you better be here soon because we are only holding your table for 15mins » I really felt disrespect and didn’t want to ruin my boyfriend surprise dinner but that was way out of line

    Steaks were €32 and it was by far the worst steak I’ve ever had. Wine wasn’t great either and came in a chunky wine glass (not a proper red wine glass) not sure if they positioning themselves as a nicer place but it is just an average, mediocre food for a higher price. The place looks nice and it is just very disappointing that the food is not good.

    Lovely Brunch at Sophies. Service was excellent, staff efficient and friendly. It irked me to pay 4 euro for a miniature bottle of coke. It’s a mixer!, I despise when I am handed a tiny bottle and charged the full price for a regular size soft drink. It is so unnecessary, how much profit is worth leaving such a negative feeling with the customer. We were a table of six, spending a lot of money, lots of cocktails and beers, so it’s not the money.. it’s the principle of getting ripped off for a soft drink. Otherwise , a lovely experience.

    Good afternoon, I went to visit the restaurant and celebrate my birthday with my friends, but unfortunately we didn't have a good experience. This is because the staff who were serving us were very rude to us when we arrived, leaving the ambiente strange. The food I thought was excellent, the drinks too, but unfortunately the service ruined the moment.

    Brought my daughter for her 18th Birthday, came from Newcastle, messaged staff before to say it was her birthday and was it possible for dessert with candle and to highlight it’s her birthday. They forgot and I had to remind them. Food was overpriced for what you get, chicken was dry, atmosphere wasn’t as I had expected, quite a let down

    Very disappointing. Wait staff were very inattentive and slow. One of the main dishes was cold and had to be made from scratch. Wine quality was poor. Staff never followed up during the meal. Desserts were tasty. Overall this was a very poor experience. 1 was hosting relatives and was very disappointed with the service and food. Will probably not return.

    Ordered the sirloin entree, and it was mediocre at best. Flavorless. The potato stacks that accompany the entree were dry. Very expensive. Portion was large for the price. Chocolate cake for dessert. It was pretty delectable, as I ate every crumb.

  • Entertainment
    On Fridays and Saturdays as the sun goes down, and the lights comes on, Sophie's comes alive. We pride ourselves on having one of the most welcoming late night bars in Dublin where all of our guests can enjoy the company of friends (old and new) in a relaxed, comfortable and genuine atmosphere. All of this happens from 11.30pm when our resident DJ comes on with an excellent mixture of the latest vibes. You won't want to go anywhere else.
