If you like simple, tasty food at a reasonable price and in a casual cool setting then 'San Lorenzo's' on South Great George's Street is for you. Now for you fusspots...you know this is not (yet :) ) a Michelin star restaurant so stop your whining already! I have visited this infamous establishment on five occasions and each time I've... More

typically when the economy begins to recover you see new restaurants, the likes of san lorenzo's opening up, deemed as the new trendy spot for a meal out, and so often these places are way overpriced as they're fashionable. the décor is too minimalistic, and the table and chairs are uncomfortable and basic. we shared the antipasti platter which was...

I was there with few friends for dinner on a Saturday evening. We didn't have a reservation so they told us to leave our number and wait aprox. 20 minutes. They gave us a call when our table was ready. Staff was so friendly and food was gorgeous. I had a tuna steak and calamari as starter and it was... More

Being a fuss/selective eater I am often disappointed when eating out- Until now that is-this place is amazing with such an extensive menu I couldn't choose! The polenta is to simply die for and the mozzarella melts in your mouth. Oh and the desserts-hmmm. It was a Friday night and there was a great atmosphere and buzz in the air!

Our first visit to this restaurant, dinner on a Friday night. It’s a popular buzzy place, youngish crowd, small tables, close together. My Calamari salad starter came sprinkled with chorizo and sea salt – a little too much saltiness but nicely cooked, tender squid. The wife’s starter - Porchetta with tuna mayo, capers & rocket was delicious. My main of... More

Recommended by the hotel staff and was truly and enjoyable experience. This is a very relaxed restaurant with good fresh food that was wonderfully prepared. The menu offered a nice variety and some lovely unique dishes. I definitely recommend ordering from the 2 or 3 course fixed price menus.

We were pleasantly surprised to stumble upon San Lorenzo's, after much difficultly locating a great Italian restaurant. The food was absolutely divine! I started my meal with the prawns which were delicately placed over a piece of grilled bread soaked in a delicious white wine butter sauce. For my main I enjoyed a fulfilling bowl of spaghetti, while my partner... More

We were very lucky to get a table as the place was packed and buzzing. A lovley choice of various dishes with some fixed price menus offering 2 or 3 courses. 2 of our party chose the chowder as a started , which was more like a seafood soup( the fusion of Irish and Mediterranean) and was lovely . Similarly... More

After San Lorenzo's was recommended to me by friends, my boyfriend and I popped in for brunch last week and we were really impressed! The staff was friendly and helpful, the atmosphere was very relaxed, and I loved the 'Brooklyn NY' style interior and background music. They have a great selection for brunch, I had the Breakfast of Champions and... More

I've long been disappointed by some of the brunch offerings in Dublin, not enough choice. If I'm hung over I need choices! The menu in San Lorenzos for brunch is fantastic. I wanted to eat everything. I got a lovely confit duck, (one of the more unusual brunch options) with heaps of fried potatoes and poached eggs. It was amazing.... More
