The space is as appetising as the menu. Situated on the third floor of the hotel, Sika's dramatic floor-to-ceiling glass walls take full advantage of the pyramidal Sugar Loaf Mountain. While on the Terrace, al fresco dining is offered all year around under retractable awnings, comfortably warmed by braziers.
Not great value for money - really expensive for what it was
Beef was very bland and was very quiet no music or atmosphere
My husband and I are vegetarians so we shared only two starters and main course vegetarian dishes on menu. We did enjoy them but think they were way overpriced. There was a set menu of three courses for €65 each. Probably better value but still expensive for meat eaters but not good for us. We shared one dessert which was okay.
I celebrated my engagement in the Sika Restaurant and the staff and especially the girl serving us were amazing.
Beautiful food. Good wine list. Lovely view. Excellent service and staff. A little low on atmosphere as the table are a little to close together at the window. We also felt we were too far apart at the table and had to talk loudly to hear each other.
Food is fabulous. Great choice. Portion sizes very good. Service excellent.
Cannot fault anything. Very relaxed setting.
Our best night there having been going there for a number of years. Food was wonderful. Thank you for a superb evening.
Absolutely delicious. all staff so pleasant. Can not fault anything
Good food. Well cooked. A bit pricy for what you get nevertheless. Nice staff. Kept us waiting for our tea and coffee. But otherwise good.
Very disappointing experience in an otherwise lovely hotel. Let’s start with the decor. The bar just outside
Service was good. Food was good with a couple of quirks. Smoked duck starter just didn't really work. Mozzarella starter used to be a lot better. Halibut and venison mains both good. Tropical fruits dessert not to everyone's taste and apart from mango i didn't see any actual fruits.
Fabulous food and a lovely atmosphere. Great to celebrate a special occasion.
A lovely dining experience.
Comfortable seating and attentive service.
food was incredible, well presented and perfect service
We were greeted by a number of smiling attentive staff. In fact the staff made the whole experience very enjoyable. They were very attentive, without being intrusive. Food overall was very good, and couldn't fault it. We booked an early sitting, and it was filling up considerably by 7.30 on a Friday night.
We had a fabulous meal at Sika. Can't fault it at all....delicious food, fabulous service.
Food disapointing and not hot. Very expensive and would represent value for money. Ambiance more conducive to a 3 star hotel. Staff friendly. This was the only disappointment in an otherwise very enjoyable weekend.
My husband experienced a fabulous dinner at Sika on the last evening of our trip to Ireland. Food was excellent and service over the top. Comfortable environment allowing us to enjoy the end of a great trip!
Disappointed that at 9pm there were children still in the restaurant, running around and making a lot noise. Not a good location for a couple on a night out. We decided to leave before ordering.
We had dinner in the restaurant on our first night at Powerscourt Resort, the food was amazing especially the monkfish! The staff were very professional and attentive.
Only sitting available on a Saturday night was 1845 despite there being empty tables beside us all night. Service was swift and we had to ask for a 15 min "rest" before ordering desserts. Quality of dishes was variable. We did not receive our petit fours. Had to ask for bill on more than one occasion. Was charged for 5 dinners instead of 3 on hotel check-out which was corrected when highlighted. Also had to queue for 15 mins for a table for breakfast the next morning
Very good food , some of the waiters should be trained a bit more before working with the guests !
I have been in Sika with my wife during our stay at Powerscourt Hotel. Our expectations were killed since we walked in to the place. Our concept of Hospitality and welcoming is far away from what we experienced there. A 5 stars hotel deserves a proper restaurant. Manager and waitresse at our table made the experience very bad.
Food was very good and well presented, staff were frendly and attentive. However the 3 course set menu was a bit of a surprise and should be made clear if you only want 2 course you could do that and pay €10 less, also the cost of a bottle of water at €7.50 is just shocking.
Overall we had a good experience with only small couple of minor issues.
Fabulous in every way! A perfect lunchtime spot with fantastic views. The staff are superb - high quality and well trained - wanting to go the extra mile to ensure you have everything needed for a great meal! Attentive and friendly - nothing too much trouble - absolutely faultless 👍🏻
I enjoyed a wonderful meal with my wife recently in Sika restaurant. Food was delicious with a large variety of choices . Wine list was extensive and service was superb
Average food , expensive , service slow and inexperienced
Awful staff - no attention to diners- a hot mess
I love the hotel and enjoy going for a Sunday afternoon. Menu is limited & on this occasion food wasn’t great. Medium beef was served well. Sides of vegetables didn’t arrive. Service & setting is excellent
We’ve been here a few times over the years while staying at the hotel, however the last couple of times I’ve avoided it, purely because the veggie options have been so limited. It’s great to see that they’ve now added a couple of veggie dishes to the menu, and I really enjoyed my meal. The service was fantastic; and they made a fuss because it was our wedding anniversary, so it was a lovely experience.
Only fixed menu -3 courses for €55 was available. Would be nice to have option to have 2 courses. Also had to continual ask for our water to be topped up. Should not have to do this for the standard of restaurant
Thoroughly enjoyed our evening with great service and great food and wine.
One waiter Dean (young man with glasses) was visibly very nervous but did an amazing job and should be encouraged by his manager. Being a restaurant manager myself i know how nerve wrecking it can be.
Food was amazing and chocolate sphere was the highlight.
Disappointed with Sika. Definitely expected more from the restaurant in a 5 Star Hotel. Standard of food below par, white wine not chilled, no real ambience, service was good.
Breakfast at Sika was like a circus, seated at table in middle of room with other guests/staff milling all about us - not even remotely relaxing, we couldn’t get out of there quick enough!
We were extremely disappointed with our dining experience Friday last. On arrival for a 8.45 booking we were left unattended to for 12 minutes as staff worked on their ipad right next to us avoiding eye contact.
Goats cheese starter was cold - and looked like something a child had prepared
Cold stagent coffee
Everything else was fine .....not of a 5 star standard AT ALL.
Complained to reception on our check out but have heard nothing since.
Lovely food and excellent service,meal was really good value for money and a good selection of wine
We had a fantastic dinner recently at the Sika Restaurant in Powerscourt Hotel. The set menu was delicious and creative. I would highly recommend this venue to friends, family & my work colleagues.
My wife and I visited Sika for Sunday lunch which is quite limited and basic, but at €45 per person is very expensive for what you get, e.g Tomato Soup, corn fed chicken breast (small) and desert. Pricing does not represent good value and the restaurant was sparsely populated as a result. It’s a really nice location and great ambiance with friendly service so has a lot going for it, but it seems that the prohibitive cost discourages more customers.
Very little atmosphere, small portions and restaurant cold
We went to Sika after getting engaged earlier in the day. It was a perfect spot for a relaxing and romantic meal afterwards.
Beautiful food, really lovely atmosphere and our waiter was super (Kevin 😊)
