I am a frequent visitor to 101 and always enjoy my tiime there. Food is of a consistently high standard with a good selection always of fish and meat. I particularly like the chicken dishes apart from the poussin, never feel as if there is enough to eat for me but then I only like the white meat!

We are staying at the Dublin City Inn almost next door and wanted something close before seeing a play at the Abbey. 101 had a great early bird (2 courses for 20 euro). Great food and service at that price point. Lovely little place.

Lovely little find. First floor restaurant so not somewhere that you would come across unless you knew where it was! Really tasty food, well presented and reasonable price.

It is in a rather seedier area of Dublin but we were feeling brave! Once upstairs (VERY steep steps) we were welcomed and made to feel very comfortable. As 2 vegetarians in Ireland we were becoming bored or cheese... the menu here was lovely and the food was gorgeous. The waiter even offered to take our picture as he could... More

Our last evening in Dublin was spent in here and we had a great meal in a lively and friendly environment. We had the Hake from the specials board and the Lamb on the recommendation of our waitress and both were fantastic. Well worth a visit.

Restaurant was book by friends and I was doubtful at first. Very pleasantly surprised by both the food and the very friendly staff. Located above the cobblers you could easily pass it by, I did twice. The exterior is a bit off putting as there are a few unlikely looking people hanging about outside. Inside is a transformation. The baked... More

Our group of four people enjoyed a truly wonderful meal in this stylish restaurant. The food was amazing and the staff were friendly and helpful. We chose from the set menu which in our opinion was wonderful value at 28 euro for three courses. A memorable evening for sure.

The restaurant at 101 Talbot Street has an unlikely location above a shoe repair shop at the address which is also its name. We selected it because of its proximity to the Abbey Theatre and recommendations we had received from a tour guide and our hotel. The atmosphere is contemporary and bright, the service good, and the food was the... More

An upstairs restaurant on Talbot Street that is not easy to find at first search - look for the red doorway. Closed on Sunday and Monday (but that wasn't clear in the guide book we had) This is an oasis in a run down street away from the attractions but only 5 minutes from O'Connell Street. We had excellant food... More

The person that took my reservation was very friendly. The restaurant was very busy. We had the Smoked Cheese & Tomato Crostini and Scallops, Black Pudding, Pea Puree & Pea Shoots for starters. Both were excellent. I had the Hake for main course it was really good. My husband had the Pork Cutlet it was overcooked and said it came... More
