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.

Food was tasty, fresh and well cooked. The set menu for €65pp is a great menu, there was loads of dishes I would have loved but the portion sizes were ridiculously small. After the starter and main course I was still hungry. The portion sizes were akin to a 5 course tasting menu. I understand restaurants have suffered a lot in the pandemic but this meal did not represent good value for money. The restaurant is clearly cutting costs by preparing less food and charging quite a high price.

We didn’t realise it was a set menu, and we had an early booking, 4.45pm. €65 per person is totally overpriced for this restaurant, definitely not to that standard. We should have checked website first. Friendly staff though.
