Absolutely fantastic and faultless service. We sampled the early afternoon menu and it was great. Lovely atmosphere and super tasty food. The Malbec wine is a winner too.

Over-priced over cooked pasta. Too expensive for what the food is. The mushroom soup was also very average. Pity cause the interior is quite cosy and there's a good ambiance.

You can't think brunch in Dublin without thinking San Lorenzos. I booked on their system OpenTable which was great as they never used to take bookings before for brunch and it was always a gamble just walking in because of it's popularity. My friend and I decided (against our wishes) not to both order the CocoPops French Toast just in... More

Menu has great choices, was a tough decision. Ended up getting the full fry called the Breakfast of Champions....delish!!! The other half had the crab cakes with asparagus, poached eggs and home fries, also excellent. Good selection of cocktails and the Bloody Mary was strong and spicy as it should be. Staff very friendly.

Food was excellent. set menu for Valentine's Day. however wasn't too impressed with having to pay an extra supplement for the steak seeing as there wasn't much choice on the menu to begin with. Nevertheless, steak was cooked beautifully and the Nutella Cheesecake was amazing.

Highly recommend for brunch but you must book. Fantastic variety but don't plan curling up and staying there for the afternoon they have a strict table turnaround policy. Food is delish! 10/10 for brunch!

The food here is delicious, however very expensive for what you are getting. I love the venison bolognese. Some people in the group were disappointed feeling the lamb was over cooked and tough. Great dessert menu. Basic decor. Expensive drinks. Staff look a bit put out to be there

We went here yesterday for dinner as we heard lots of good reviews. We weren't disappointed. To make things better they do an early bird all night Sunday to Wednesday so we were delighted. As I've read from another review here, it is a little "too close for comfort"... like the table was pretty tiny and one menu is the... More

We visited for brunch on a Sunday in February as we had heard good things. First thing that struck us was the proximity of the tables to each other which is a little uncomfortable. Staff were really friendly and the service was pretty quick. We had the breakfast and the pork belly hash. Food was nice but wasn't anything special,... More
