Amazing brunch!

Visited with a gang of friends for brunch on Dublin Pride. The place was hopping! I've been waiting to go to Whitefriar for a long time, and now I can't wait to go back. The staff were absolutely brilliant, so attentive and friendly. I had their huevos rancheros and I died and went to heaven. I've... read more

Everything was done just right, food, service and value. Couldn't find a single flaw to complain about. It was justifiably full even on a Sunday night. Only 40 seats or so: be sure to reserve.

Having spent the morning at Taste of Dublin Festival we left this great food location to have 3.30 pm brunch. We were not disappointed in any way. An excellent and imaginative menu helped along by.top class management. Quality food at a reasonable price. Already looking forward to our next visit to Whitefriar Grill.

I ate here before years ago, and loved it. No idea why I never went back, but an Irish times offer prompted me. We got a great deal on the meal so were expecting small portions or limited options etc, but we were wrong. The food was excellent, there was a huge choice, it was the first time my partner... More

Amazing quality food, generous portions and the early bird special is great value. Service was great - ironically the only let down was they took too long to take payment! But that's minor - would recommend.

This is my first trip to Ireland and my first romance at the Whitefriar Grill. The service was friendly and pleasant, a staple all over Dublin. But the food is extraordinary. We enjoyed the Oxtail marmalade tart with a Guinness stout. It is savory and delicious; if it is a bit too salty, then you forgot to take a bit... More

Ten of us - 5 couples - ate in Whitefriar Grill last night. We arrived on time but the previous guests were still occuping our designated table. The staff were very apologetic but having finished out own meal and can see why you wouldn't want to dash off. The chef has put a very good twist on many classical dishes... More

Really relaxed, chilled out place to eat. We went for a brunch and ordered the fry which was amazing. Unfortunately my boyfriend had to leave in a rush halfway through his meal so I finished my food on my own. The staff were so nice and offered to wrap up his food and when I declined, they took it off... More
