My mate who lives in Dublin mentioned everyone raves about this place...it's worth the hype. In addition to super delicious and inventive food, the early bird special was going all night! Fantastic service and friendly atmosphere while I dined solo - perfect treat.

We had a great value early bird on a Saturday evening. We were greeted by really cheery staff. Relaxed happy restaurant. Food terrific - gorgeous gambas with caesar salad, juicy steak, and delicious hake - followed by lovely baileys and cherry brulee and brownnie with chocolate sauce, ice cream and cream. We dine in a lot of restaurants around Dublin... More

This is one of the best brunch places in town. The food is great, lots of options and perfect quality quantity. The only problem with it is that it is very busy on the weekend and they might take a while to bring out your food. Depends a lot on thw day.

My friends and I had dinner here at the recommendation of our hotel staff. The food, ambiance, and service was excellent. The steak and ribs combo was a huge hit. We loved it so much that we went back for brunch. What made the experience even more special was that our server recommended a few bars we should go to... More

Delightful restaurant with a lively atmosphere, excellent menu and friendly staff delivering excellent service and terrific food. Top class in every respect, and hidden, as it is, behind an innocuous street front facade, you would never expect to find such a gem in the city. Highly recommended in every respect.

Knowing nothing really about food in Dublin or the relative neighborhoods, I'm thrilled to have stumbled upon the Whitefriar Grill. Just a block or so from my hotel and in the nearest vicinity to our offices, the restaurant had gotten great reviews and so I checked it out. Particularly useful was that the place was still charmingly busy at 8pm,... More

Having been here 3 times for brunch and twice for dinner, Whitefriar never fails to impress. This wonderful little restaurant serves up quality delicious and value for money food. The staff are always friendly and attentive. Their ribs and rump is to die for. Brunch is always great and their fish dishes are sublime. Seriously, give this place a try...... More

We ate here having read a few reviews and wanting to find somewhere special for our last night in Dublin. We weren't disappointed! We opted for the offer of the day - two steaks and three different types of ribs, with sides and a half litre of wine for 40 euros for two people. It really was amazing value! Although... More

This was my first visit to this gem of a restaurant and certainly will not be my last. The smell on entering the restaurant is enough to hook you! The service is exceptional - friendly and attentive.
