A Gem of a local restaurant over one of Dublins great bars.

My second time here and like the last visit was well impressed. It is casual dinning that ticks all the boxes, for me anyway! Will definitely be back..

We ate here on the first night we arrived in Dublin - the restaurant was quite quiet when we ate but soon filled up! We ate from the Early Bird menu which was quite limited but quite good value. I need to start with the free bread brought to the table while we ordered - absolutely delicious! The only issue... More

Dinner at the Sussex was again nice. Had the tuna and steak. Good atmosphere, a nice glass of wine and the food is not bad either :)

I had checked the menu on the internet but when I arrived there it was a different one. Anyway, I asked for the early bird menu which is a little more expensive than in the rest of the places in that area (21,95€). The starter and main course were nice but nothing special. What I liked the best was the... More

We ate here last night and the food was very good - the staff are absolutely lovely (attentive but don't over do it) and it is very reasonably priced. The only down side is that the menu is a bit limited (steaks, burgers, shepherds pie, fish and chips etc) but it is all very high quality and beautifully presented. We... More

Booked our late Saturday evening via phone earlier in the day. Upstairs from a cute pub. Good food-nice hearty portions. I had the lamb shepherd's pie which was delicious and need for the cold, rainy night. My sister had the fish, which was cooked beautifully. Salad was also nice. They have a interesting cocktail menu as well if you are... More

We ate here on a Saturday evening, booking the table earlier in the evening. The service was second to none, attentive but not intrusive. The staff were happy to recommend and advise and the kitchen was open to view which I love. The food was beautiful, just enough, perfectly cooked and in lovely intimate surroundings. Would definitely recommend and hope... More

The Sussex is beautifully decorated and a pleasure to spend time in. We only had time for a small bite each as we were leaving for the airport, but what we had was good quality and served with a friendly and professional attitude.

Given the price and the beautiful decor I thought the food would be better. It was fine, just a bit bland. The Guinness is served from the bar downstairs which pours a great pint, however.
