Italian
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, where we have sun loungers when it’s hot, blankets and heaters when it’s not.

Our first day out since baby was born.I was dying to try this place.Food was average.Pizza options minimal and the glasses had lipstick stains as did our coffee mugs.Awful experience have to say.

The whole hotel and all the bars are really gorgeous. Like the outdoor terrace too. In Sophie’s, We had a table by the window and it overlooked all of Dublin. It was fab! I emailed my special requests in advance and all were met, our waitress was fabulous. It’s a tad expensive but I guess it was work it for the service and venue, particularly when celebrating a milestone birthday.

Would have liked if there lunch menu was on offer at the weekend too. Our reservation was at 2.30pm and brunch was the only choice. There was therefore limited choice for this “lunchtime slot”

Setting is gorgeous, the soup for starter was amazing! Felt the tagliatelle could have been cooked for longer, the side of mash was fab though! The over all bill was great value, and are server was very friendly. Clearing plates was a little slower, and I found the restaurant it’s self extremely cold, but still enjoyed the experience.

Very nice atmosphere and view although there was a very cold draft coming from somewhere throughout the whole time.
Food was good/average but quite poor value for money. Also the selection of dishes could be improved.
Staff was very nice and friendly, we felt looked after. Very nice surprise was the fact that the waitress brought ice-cream with a happy birthday sign and a candle for my fiance, as it was his birthday (which I specified in my booking but not expected anything like that). That was a super nice touch which would make me come back and give the food another try.

Many thanks
