We were so looking forward to this reservation and we weren't disappointed. From the time we arrived we were looked after by very welcoming staff. Short wait until we were taken to our table. The whole experience from start to finish was amazing. The food was unbelievably good. We had the tasting menu which and selected our own wine from a extensive wine list. Each dish when arrived to the table was explained by a well informed server. Love this restaurant and will defiantly will be back. It's up there with one of the best in the Dublin and well worth it for an occasion

The food was exquisite. The chef is Brazilian and every bite was a delight. The space was small and intimate with floor to ceiling windows looking onto a lovely street. Adam our server was charming and gave us lots of pub and restaurant recommendations in Dublin. Highly recommend

Brother Hubbard Ranelagh is delighted to host “Yves” – a delightful evening offering of light bites, sharing menus, wine and some cocktails – all with a French and Spanish twist! As well as offering our own delicious wines, we are excited to offer Bring Your Own/BYO for wine and beer (a corkage fee applies) – which is particularly excited as we are located next to Redmonds, one of the finest off-licences in Ireland. We are open Thursday, Friday & now Saturday evenings across the Autumn and Winter months. We offer a la carte dining as well as a special “Feast” sharing menu. We can cater for all main dietary requirements. Booking recommended.
