Our pork is single farm Co.Wicklow, our beef is Leinster, Hereford or Angus cross breed, our lamb is Co. Kildare Curragh grass fed, our chickens are barnyard humanly reared and our fish and seafood is sustainable and mostly from our Irish Coastal waters.

The set menu was amazing with plenty of choice. The quality of the food did not disappoint. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable but perhaps a little too efficient. A little longer between courses would have made a much more chilled experience. 6 courses in 75 minutes felt a bit rushed! Our only minor criticism and certainly won’t put us off going back

We had a brilliant time at San Lorenzos, the food was amazing but what really made the brunch enjoyable was the outstanding service from our server Christine. She had great food recommendations and made the afternoon feel all the more special. Great atmosphere and good craic would definitely return.

Disappointing breakfast. Sorry but two polenta chips is too little and no toast! When asked for toast, was given char grilled ciabatta which tasted burnt. This was added to my bill. The taste was overpowering. My daughters bagel was the same, that burnt taste. Service was excellent.

Very welcoming staff, timely serving of food, great value for money- SET Dinner Menu. Lamb and pork belly was lovely and Tiramisu for desert (a big helping) simply delicious. Left feeling nicely full and well looked after in this great atmospheric restaurant.

We had heard about the “Back to Dine” pop-up in San Lorenzo from a friend. It can only be described as extravagantly delicious - incredible tasting menu with awesome wine pairings. Charming staff and the most passionate sommelier ever! A real treat!

The back to dining was an excellent idea and the food wonderful but honestly too much. More related to Americans with big appetites than Irish with lesser appetites.
Thank you for a memorable experience.

The pop-up experience was fantastic. The food was very well made, we chose the wine parring with the menu, which was absolutely superb. Both regarding the sommeliers choice of wine but also the explanation of why a particular wine was suited to the menu.
The only reason for not giving the food 5 stars is because it was too much food for 12 courses. It was a nice detail that they packed the last courses for us to take home.
We can absolutely recommend San Lorenzo's and the pop-up experience.

From the door entry it was a 5 star experience. Fantastic atmosphere. We went with wine pairings. Each wine was great. Catherine really did great job on pairings. I think we had about 11 courses and had to bring home dessert trio. Anthony and the team could not have done a better job. There is passion on the team. The chef Temple and his team need a call out... outstanding. This experience we cannot recommend enough. Above 5 stars.

Simply tremendous, the back to dine meals at home were great and the experience in the restaurant was the topper. The group is onto something new and rewarding to both sides of the kitchen. From the first step in the door to exiting, the team at San Lorenzo’s/backtodine are one of the best I’ve encountered. The food is top notch, the chef, sommelier, wait staff and manager are all knowledgeable and pleasant. Could be the fact we haven’t had the at home pleasantries of a restaurant that make it seem so nice at present time but I believe I haven’t had this type of experience at a restaurant before COVID. On top of us patrons thrilled to be out, every one of the the staff seemed just as excited. It really adds to the ambiance when everyone is pleased to be where they are at the moment. Brilliant work! I’ll be a returning customer and advocate for BackToDine and those involved going forward.
