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.

    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.

    Mediocre food. Dreadful seating arrangements; no privacy whatsoever. Ambience reminiscent of a works canteen. Decor a kitsch mix of fake artisan and revived industrial. Too noisy. Too expensive given the quality of food. Excellent service.

    The only positive thing to say about the experience was that the food was ok - not good and not bad, simply ok - but for 39 Euros for a steak this is poor. Steaks were ok, potatoes and veg tasted ok but appeared batch cooked without any real care. Chocolate fondant was cold - the whole appeal of this dish is that it pours out a hot chocolate when cut into, but at least it was edible. This is the good part of the review, now on to the service... We arrived early and were seated within a minute or 2 so a good start. In less than a minute after sitting down a waitress arrived to take our order and seemed a bit put out when we asked for more time - we hadn't even opened our menus at the time. After ordering, our food arrived in a timely manner and was plonked in front of us - no pleasantries, or enjoy your food comments, just plonked. We were then asked if everything was ok after we had finished the meal before the plates were whisked away. Our desert was ok, cheeseboard is difficult to mess up but the chocolate fondant was cold. After the meal we asked for the bill. This was plonked on top of our empty plates on the part eaten food and the waitress started typing in the amount on the pay terminal without even letting me check the receipt or know the cost - she seemed a bit put out when I asked to look at the receipt - I wanted to see if there was an added service charge (there wasn't). When we left, the front of house couldn't be bothered to look up from her phone to say goodbye or thanks. When I booked the meal there was a selection to advise the venue what the occasion was - this was our 30th wedding anniversary. This was not acknowledged in any way so a pointless question really. However in those 30 years we have never refused to pay a service charge. This time the service was so bad that my wife asked me to check for a service charge and have it removed. So at least the anniversary meal is memorable for 1 'first'. The restaurant wasn't busy so no excuses.

The views from the venue overseeing the city alongside the dim lighting made for a very atmospheric environment accompanied by low murmuring of chatter made for a truly wonderful experience and vibe.
