Fantastic 5-course surprise menu in The Greenhouse last week. Every element of the meal was beautifully done and the experience seems to be getting better every time I visit. Food highlights for me were the fois gras royale with buckthorn and eel, sika deer with parsnip and truffle and the exquisite passion fruit soufflé. All of the food was beautifully... More

I think there is near unanimity that the Greenhouse serves some of the best food you will eat in Ireland. It is creative, challenging and exquisite. There is little debate that such a dining experience comes at a premium. Quality ingredients and staff do not come cheap; maintaining a dining environment to complement the exquisite food also requires investment. I... More

Being familiar with the food of chef Mickael Viljanen for many years through his work at Gregans Castle in Ballyvaughan Co. Clare I only recently ate at this, his Dublin restaurant. The 7 course tasting menu was adapted to meet our pescatarian needs, without any hesitation, and we certainly did not feel short-changed in any way for not being meat... More

Had lunch there with my husband on a week day. Food was fantastic and room very pleasant. Will be back for sure. I presume they will get the Michelin star next year

The only option on a Saturday night is the tasting menu but luckily for me I always order a tasting menu in a restaurant of this standard as I believe that you should be able to trust the chef. I had heard a lot of hype about this restaurant for the last two years which can often be a build-up... More

Finally got to eat in The Greenhouse. Every bit as good as expected. Lovely room with the most comfortable chairs ever. Staff could not have been more professional. The food was out of this world. It looked great, it smelt great and it tasted amazing. I thought it was very good value (we had the lunch) and I look forward... More

I was a little disappointed after my first visit there a fortnight ago. My partner has eaten there before and in hindsight he was a little underwhelmed after his first visit. We ate the seven course tasting menu, with matching wines. There was nothing exactly wrong per say but I was a little disappointed with the flavours, the presentation however... More

Visited on the strength of the chefs reputation and was not disappointed. We selected the set dinner menu and managed to not have to same course, all the courses were superb and imaginative. The sommelier provided great insight to the wine list. The only slight downside was the service which was rather erratic and my companion, in particular, took a... More
