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.

The food was delicious. Portions were very generous for both main course and dessert. The waiter looking after us was so attentive. A really relaxing lunch, we will be back.

I found it to be a little bit overhyped - the food was generally fine and acceptable (dessert was really excellent), but some of the other small things weren't great; fries were a bit soggy and the mac-n-cheese was just a little bland.

Pizza dough was top notch
Service was great
Cocktails were fine - nothing to write home about
Dessert was great

Views and ambience were good.
You'll have a good time if you just dial down your expectation of the food a little bit.

We booked as a birthday treat for my daughter. Pancake stacks were massive....enough for 2 people in each portion but just topped with a generic chocolate sauce. French Toast was huge thick clumps of bread with a sliced banana on the side. Full breakfast had all elements you would expect, nothing particularly stood out. My issue is that there was absolutely no imagination shown with the menu or food and it seems the chef/owners believe you can substitute quantity for quality. The unfortunate fact is that I can get the same quality and quantity at my local greasy spoon and as our breakfast for 4 came to over €70, I could get it for around half the price as well.

Very nice ambient, extensive drinks list. However, is is apparent that second-class ingredients are being used - the bagels are neither fresh nor being toasted to at least attempt to cover that fact up. Asparagus is not freshly cooked. The waiting staff, apart from a Croatian guy, seemed hesitant to take orders.

Not covid friendly, not a great atmosphere. Very overhyped. Very disappointing. Got seated on top of a couple... I mean on top I could have touched them with my elbow... I could hear their entire conversation and they ours, made the experience quite in enjoyable. Worse part was the restaurant wasn't even busy, there was more empty tables than full...I have no idea why they didn't put us somewhere else. The cocktails were also pretty awful. Had an espresso martini and all I got was gritty water essentially....
