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

Excellent service and a great menu. We had brilliant space around our table and the waiter was on the ball.

2 of us ordered the fillet steak medium rare and 1 ordered the sirloin medium-rare. Sirloin cooked perfectly, the two fillets were cooked medium-well which was our only criticism.

Just a fab place to eat overall , it is kind of fancy and you can get great food but not pretentious, mixed variety of diners. Staff were courteous but not looming over you.

Physically a lovely venue with great views which unfortunately was not possible to see with the height of growing vegetation when sitting.
It was a hot day but yet it was uncomfortably chilly on the rooftop. Service was prompt and helpful. The antipasti board was tasty, followed by pan fried hake - really good. My friend had pizza that went down well. Wine was pricey with no much choice. The portions were generous without being overly too much.

A must go restaurant in Dublin with unbelievably good food and service - I would give 6 stars if it was possible.
We had scallops and prawns for starters, both super tasty, steak and hake for mains, also amazingly good, finished with vanilla raspberry cake (light as meringue), which was just a great ending od the wonderful night.

Pizza was lovely bit too much oil therefore I could not hold it as the oil went all over me. Disappointing that when adding items to the pizza that chicken would be €6 to add.

No complaints about food and drink which were of a high standard. However, for a 9:30pm booking on a Sunday we felt extremely rushed throughout. We had barely finished our main course when our plates were lifted almost forcefully and asked about dessert immediately. Last orders were called at 10:40pm, which was when we were not even halfway through our previous drink order. Then the outdoor heaters were turned off after 10:45pm, leaving us in the cold for the last 10-20mins. The bill was even given to us whilst finishing dessert. Subsequently, we were asked to leave and move to the lobby to finish our drinks just after 11pm. I understand that of a Sunday the finish time may be 11pm, but the booking on OpenTable clearly states that the table is available for 1hr 45mins. Therefore to feel rushed after 1hr and asked to leave after 1hr 30mins is very disappointing. If 11pm on a Sunday is closing, I recommend that the 9:30pm booking is removed.

Nice brunch, limited options for gluten free but delicious cocktails and my other half assured me the pancakes were delicious.
I ordered a burger without the bunch and the wrong one was sent out, coming with bacon and Chipotle mayo. The menus were taken away so when questioned if this was the correct dish, I was assured yes. I questioned the fact mine was to come with no bacon or cheese and with alioli I was told yes.. its Chipotle alioli.
It was fine.. I wouldn't return for food myself but the cocktails were very good and as it was extremely busy, the staff were very professional and efficient.

We had a pleasant evening in Sophie’s, the staff were very friendly and it is a lovely place. However I feel the food and drinks are overpriced. We waited over an hour for our pizza and it really wasn’t that good! Our local fire house pizza is much nicer! Our starter of prawns was delicious but very pricey at €14!
