My husband booked us for a meal here for our 10 year anniversary, the food was delicious although i found the menu a little small but perhaps better to have a smaller menu and cook each dish to perfection. They gave us their best table along with a complimentary glass of prosecco each and our dessert came with a lovely... More

Six of us enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Hugo's last night. A small/cozy/quiet place, right in the midst of a popular & raucous Dublin bar area. An accidental find on a tip from a Chicago friend, excellent food, attentive service and good value. After a long day of St Paddy's parade, followed by hurling & Gaelic football, a quiet and...

Second time here and tonight was just as good as the last time we were there. Service is exceptional, wait staff are very friendly and know the menu very well. Crab starter was amazing, so tasty as were the scallops. Cooked to perfection. The lamb special was one of the highlights of the meal and the potato gratinwas just superb.food... More

Great lunch and not expensive. Stumbled across this place whilst trawling through all the bars and pubs on the street. Very tidy, food great for lunch. Just what the doctor ordered.

Dined on a cold Monday night but there was still plenty of life in Hugos. Service and food were good with the steak well worth a mention. Good value as well.

On 9th of Feb I was celebrating my birthday with my boyfriend at Hugo's. The moment we entered the restaurant, we were welcomed with lovely vibe and smiles. Since I'm a big fan of scallops, I find myself as a tough judge on them. But that night I've got the chance to try the best ones in town! Perfectly cooked... More

Chef is really accomodating with allergies/gluten free options. Really nice wine menu, with detailed descriptions of the wine. Beautiful ambience, warm and elegant. Service generally good.
