This is a small restaurant with a friendly service not too expensive. Do not expect special dishes, but for a steak it is ok.

Ate here on Valentine's Day and we were both VERY disappointed. When we entered the restaurant firstly there was no warm welcome. We had to approach the girl behind the counter saying we had a reservation. With no smile she took our coats and we were seated. The pre-theatre menu was basic but fine. We ordered prosecco and not once... More

booked dinner for 2 at short notice when in Dublin for 6 Nations. Made very welcome, had lovely starters (esp scallops) super mains (pork and tournedos rossini) both with good veg. and light sauces. Regretfully couldnt make pud - too full! Excellent wine list - including good range for glass only. Left there as very happy bunnies!

Following a great afternoon watching the racing from Cheltenham in the Horseshoe Bar at the Shelbourne we went 100 yards down the road to the convivial Hugo's. Great crab salad and some wonderful steaks ...very large in both cases....interest and esoteric wine list. Great service and really cosy atmosphere. Great value very honest good cooking. Worth a trip!

Busy lunchtime on a Friday, very old fashioned décor and strange feel to the place but food was very good. Both had fish and chips which was very good. Will come back in evening to try again.

We visited Hugo's for lunch and there were eight of us in our group. The food was really good and all eight of us enjoyed our meals. The service was excellent and the staff very attentive. I had the beef rap and it was with out doubt the best rap I have ever had. Some of the others had the... More

As soon as another visit to Dublin was planned, I booked dinner at Hugo's and their eccentric table for 2 by the window following our wonderful meal last October. We were not disappointed by the warm welcome, the rapidly provided bottle of chilled Prosecco (eu36.50) and the exciting menu. How wonderful to find a menu where almost every dish offers... More
