Italian

A glasshouse restaurant, where the weather is our wallpaper. We serve breakfast and dinner 7 days a week. We do lunch on weekdays and brunch at the weekend.




Our New York – Italian menu is simple and delicious. Meats, fish, vegetables, fruits, herbs and dairy delivered daily by local suppliers. The restaurant vibe changes from a laid back sunrise through a buzzing sunset. A view like no other in Dublin, cityscape to countryside. No fuss, no formality, book a table and enjoy.




Sophie’s Bar is at the very heart of our rooftop restaurant. Pull up a stool and get comfortable at any time, day or night to take in the incredible views of the Dublin skyline while our amazing team of bartenders create a world-class cocktail for you.




Head out to our Rooftop Terrace to soak up the sun when it's hot, or wrap up in blankets under our heaters when it’s not.

    Lovely food. Sat on outdoor terrace - lovely. Service was okay but we had finished our starters and no sign of our drinks. We had to ask twice for them. Sundae was a let down - basically was just two scoops of ice cream and was expensive. Been here before and service was much better then. A few areas they need to improve on before I go back.

    It was our first time there and it left a brilliant impression on us . Decor is absolutely amazing!!. Busy for lunch time so we did have to wait a little longer but we understood. Everyone was working their hardest. Staff were incredibly friendly. Loved the little touches like refilling water glasses, ketchup with the chips . Food was outstanding. Best Mac and cheese I’ve ever had. Pizza was gorgeous!!. Dying to go back and see it at nighttime!.

    Sophie's has a great location and nice views. I've only had breakfast there, and the food has always been pretty good. The service is a bit rough. I tried calling multiple times to let them know we'd be a few minutes late, only to be put on hold indefinitely each time. I figured they were super busy, but when we arrived the place was empty! And yet I still had to wait by the door for 5 min before anyone would seat me. Good place for brunch during the week as there are not many places that offer it, but overall pretty average.

    Great sunset view, not so good service. We booked a table for 4 to dinner and we were expecting a better service for the price they charge. They didnt have sparkling water and coca cola to serve us. Food was ok.

    Great food in a cool hotel. They could offer a separate ‘the works’ vegetarian/vegan breakfast on the menu to make it easier to order but when we requested a veggie version they were happy to make it and it was delicious.

    Disappointing experience overall. I’ve been many times before so this was a let down. Air conditioning broken in the restaurant and we were informed by the manager that it was reading 29degress inside. Very uncomfortable, not enjoyable. We got moved to outside seating then. Service was very poor.

    We had a 9pm reservation and arrived at 9.15pm, as that’s the grace period allowed. We were told the table was just paying the bill so told us to grab a drink at the bar. They kindly got us seats at the bar as I’m pregnant which was very kind. We didn’t get sat down until 9.40pm and were told immediately that we’d need to order as the kitchen was closing at 10pm. It felt frustrating that there was such a delay in getting us seated to then be rushed to order. I think if you have to wait for your table and encouraged to get a drink at the bar, you should be offered a drink on the house.

We were told our table needed before we had time to have desert/tea/coffee. Nowhere nice to have a cocktail after dinner….as the terrace was only for food apparently….had a cocktail in the dark foyer instead… will not return here….

    A lovely dining experience in Dublin with amazing food and lovely staff. The only thing that I would like to note is that the service was quite slow and we were waiting for our food for quite a while and after dinner were not presented with a dessert menu until specifically asking for it. Nonetheless I would absolutely recommend the Restaurant and will definitely be coming back.

    An amazing experience to have in Dublin: They are open till late, including the kitchen, the size is generous so you don’t feel crowded, great portions. Incredible view of the city. Extremely friendly staff. Other restaurants in Dublin could do with looking at this business model where the customer feels happy and at ease. Well done Sophie’s 👍🏻❤️🌹

    Nice place to have brunch. The premises themselves are really well done and you have a lovely view of Dublin. The staff are really nice but with the place being so popular, there's a chance you have to wait to be served, so be patient. The food is good but not amazing (which is a bit of a bummer considering the price and the comparison to some other amazing brunch places in the area).
