Elegant Breakfast

This was the best Irish breakfast we encountered during our stay in Ireland. Beautiful white table cloths, unending selection of breads, scones and jams, eggs poached to perfection and a very tasty black pudding, and silver tea/coffee pots replenished at every turn.

The dinner was outstanding. The food was delicious and the service excellent. the pastry chef outdid himself with our desserts. I would certainly dine again in the restaurant. Plus, we were here for breakfasts for three days. The breakfasts had everything you could imagine at the buffet. Also they made you porridge, eggs or waffles if that's what you wanted.... More

Delightful and delicious breakfast. Service was extraordinary. The full Irish breakfast was enough for two people. Nice ambience downstairs in hotel.

Beautiful breakfasts, very quiet dinners. Don't order the Irish stew, no matter how much you want to eat the local food. We all decided that we just don't like Irish stew. Everything else was very good. Especially desserts.

This is a must visit for foodies visiting Dublin. Elegant surroundings, superb food, and well executed presentations & service. We had the scallops, pork chops and lamb. Vegetable sides were perfectly done including the broccoli, green beans and escaloped potatoes. Well prepared cocktails and a nice selection of wines by glass.

Super convenient for those staying in the Merrion, the cellar had delicious food and wine. The leg of lamb was delicious. When our meal took longer than expected, they apologized and comped the wine without our asking.

Our 1st dinner in Dublin and at our hotel. Had a pleasant salmon entrée. My husband had his Irish Breakfast there every morning. Good but so overpriced.

This restaurant ambience is great, the ratio of staff to customers is very good. I enjoyed my appetizer and dessert very much. I had the chicken as a main and it was a bit bland, but I assume that is because they know that those of us ordering the chicken aren't very adventurous. Otherwise, it was a delightful evening out,... More
