Went there as a group to celebrate my sister's birthday (10 adults). The ambiance was nice, service was good and the food we had was tasty and well prepared. There was something on the menu which included an "overnight" tomato. I asked what an "overnight tomato" was and was told that it was a tomato that had been cooked for... More

Love the food and ambience here. I think because of the location their prices are hiked up a bit too far.

We did not have a reservation and just popped in. The hostess showed us the menu and even saved a table right in front so we could people watch. We ran to our hotel close by and came back in 30 minutes. We were so glad we did. Such a fun night. We had the hummus plate and risotto dish.... More

I was here in July with a hungry film crew and we were dining on a set meal : 2 courses. We were given some lovely bread before our starters. I had the duck rilles. I wasn't sure what to expect but I must say it wasn't what I would have guessed. It resembled flaked tuna. The mains were delicious.... More

A lovely treat for me and my grown up family on an evening out in Dublin. Nicely buzzing atmosphere, opulent decor, great food and good service. I would go again for a special meal out.

Liked the food, started with duck appetizer with wonderful flavor. My chicken was moist and flavorful. Husband's steak had good flavor but a little tough. Only bad thing was the service. Unfriendly

The concierge of our hotel recommended Hugo's for lunch on Sunday as it was past two and getting late. We got there at half two and immediately a table was found for us in the back, but they moved us to the front as soon as that table opened up. Brunch menu is not extensive but everything is of high... More
