Experience our fabulous outdoor space for lunch. Rain or sunshine the Garden has a cosy and heated atmosphere in any case and can be requested, subject to availability.



The bright and airy first floor dining room is a really comfortable space to relax and enjoy lunch or dinner and a glass or two of fine wine. We use locally sourced, seasonal produce where possible combined with the very best Italian ingredients to create a menu that is modern and unique. We consider ourselves a contemporary tapas style restaurant with an Italian influence.

    Love coming to Drury Buildings for a casual lunch / dinner they have outstanding tapas with a great beer / wine list, friendly & attentive staff and great atmosphere. Outdoor dining out the back is a hidden gem.

    Food was good, very good. The outside space was a bit cramped. There was a large group in so it may be less so typically. There was plenty of space inside but we chose to eat outdoors. The service was very pleasant and attentive although they did forget a couple of our small dishes. Though that was probably a good thing as what we had was plenty.

    By far the best meal I had on my trip to Dublin. Great atmosphere, super convenient location and excellent food. Service was ok, could have been speedier but also recognise there are shortages everywhere nowadays.

    We loved the relaxed feel of this place. We would definitely return to try more dishes. The aubergine parmigiana was divine and my girlfriend loved the potato and spring onion cake with smoked salmon. We shared a portion of Buffalo chicken wings, which I could not fault, but my girl did not particularly like them, although she could not quite point the figure at what exactly she did not like. The cocktails we had were refreshing. Our friends also really liked the atmosphere. Service was well-timed, friendly and attentive and we found the prices quite reasonable. We will certainly return!

    Beautiful venue and setting, food quality wasn't as good previous visits (just wasn't the same quality),but prior to this food was always tasty. The cocktails are delish albeit overpriced. Staff were ttentive but one waiter was a little patronising. All in all,a pleasant experience but probably wouldn't rush back too soon.

    Super Food, excellent service from our waitress, but unfortunately the barman served my cocktail in a warm glass, when I asked him to change it, first I was assured it was fine the way it was and then proceeded to pour it into another glass and hand it back to me! No offer of “Shall I make new one for you sir”, but our waitress came to the rescue and saved the day. But at €13 a cocktail I would expect more respect from the mixologist.
