There is a lot to like about The Breslin - it is a lively, pub-like venue with good food. The crowd was a mix of business people, hipsters and families (yes, there were children which was good to see). It is pretty good value -...More

The Breslin is a cool restaurant. Don't have another word for it. The atmosphere is very interesting. The menu is original. The food is tasteful. And the service is great. Worth going!

The Breslin restaurant is the only legacy of the former Breslin Hotel taken over and rebranded by ACE a decade ago. What's amazing about the restaurant is that you would never guess it's not all original furnishings and fixtures. In fact, when the Breslin Hotel...More

Breslin is loud, fun and expensive, and delicious. Friendly if harassed server. The Stilton Pie is not to be missed , not the Caesar Salads. Burgers also good and the polenta as well. Upstairs is a tad quieter. Crowded.
