    Perfect location for entertaining visitors to Dublin. Fabulous views over city watching sun go down. Relaxed atmosphere with attentive staff. Best pizzas outside of Tuscany,I think the chef may be using his secret family recipe😜Easily the best pizza in Dublin👌

    Went for brunch. Age range from 80 down to 12. Food was great. Service v friendly. The views were great too. It was busy and lively, so probably didn't also need music on the speakers. Would happily go again

    It was a lovely dinner and the “outdoor” dining didn’t feel like you were outdoors - except for the people smoking next to us, even though it states it’s a non smoking area. Food was really nice and arrived quickly. Was perfect for our girls Night out

    Booking a table was an easy process, finding the restaurant was a bit difficult, not many signs nor was there many signs showing what way to go once you enter the building where the restaurant is situated. However, the service, quality, decors and food was experimental, slight more expensive than it is worth but still very very good 👍 Would definitely recommend and have already recommended.

    Our personal experience was magnificent, the attention of the waitress from the Canary Islands is excellent, super cute, sincere and cooperative, her recommendations are super successful. Without a doubt, I would go again and ask to be attended by her.

    Service was a bit hit and miss, first waiter was nice but not very fast at taking the orders or offering us drinks. The food size portion for the price was only okay, but good quality pizzas and brunch items

    Attractive room but noisy and a lot of ventilator draught. Food not bad but not memorable- though my ravioli good. Pricing reflects cost of outfitting rather than food.

    Layla'sResponded on September 14, 2022Dear David, Sorry to hear you felt that way. Layla's is a very busy restaurant and does get a bit noisy but we do have quieter seats if requested. Hopefully you will visit again and we can show you how great Layla's can be. Best, Layla's GM

    My wife had the Octopus starter, that was tasty and interesting. I had the cod croquettes that were a bit bland. My wife had seabass for the main, it came wrapped in tinfoil and paper, a small portion. It was light and refreshing but nothing to write home about. I had the seared duck breast that was a little too metalic tasting. My daughter had the pizza as were many others around us. This was an anniversary dinnerand and while this was noted and the service friendly and prompt I would be very reluctant to have an evening dinner here again. I chose this restaurant because I have had a good brunch here in the past.

    The restaurant was not busy, but it took nearly an hour for the food to arrive. Food was cold when served. Unacceptable. Went across the road for a far superior dining experience.
