This was recommended by friends in Dublin. We had scrambled eggs, omelette, bacon, toast. It was fine. Nothing to write home about. As a matter of fact, it would have been better at home. There were not many people there, so maybe we hit at a bad time. There are so many other great breakfast places in Dublin that we... More

I like the food they serve in Avoca but the atmosphere is not very pleasant for me. When I visited it was very noisy and the wait time was quite long. Service was friendly though and the quality of the meal was excellent.

They have delicious, warm, wonderfully colorful blankets, as well as soaps, gifts, clothes, a little takeout in the basement, and level after level all the way up to the top, where their little cafe was serving boeuf bourguinon. Oh, and also candles, and chocolate. What more could you desire?

It is always a special pleasure when a spontaneous visit results in the discovery of a real gem. This lovely cafe on the 2nd floor of the Avoca shop is well worth the climb and you'll need the exercise to expend just a small proportion of the calories you will accumulate! Immediately after being taken to the table we were... More

I had a delightful lunch in this quirky cafe, which seemed to attract as many locals as tourists. Great food, eclectic menu, friendly service. A glass of wine also helped sooth me after making the credit card smoke while shopping in their fabulous store.

Came from a hundred miles to the north, and walked all over Dublin just to get here. It was well worth it - fabulous meal. I had the mezze platter of spicy minced Wicklow lamb, hummus, baba ghanouj, beetroot tzatziki & warm pitta for 9 Euro 50. It was a thing of glory. Loved it all. Free brown bread. There... More

They have the most addictive scones and breads. The baked goods in general are fabulous and I've eaten a meal there once or twice and have never been disappointed. Its difficult to go in there without walking out with something

We had an excellent breakfast! The servers were very friendly and responsive. The food was excellent. They serve modern cuisine with a mix of traditional Irish food and healthier choices. Lovely decor with lots of natural light.

Took my eight year old here for a little mammy daughter time. It was very good albeit a little expensive.

You must go to an Avoca restaurant whilst in Ireland. I have been to three and always had a gorgeous meal, would not be the same if I visited my Daughter in Dublin and did not eat a meal at Avoca. No dislikes whatsoever.
