Citron Restaurant in one of Dublin’s hippest, Conran-designed hotels is found at the very heart of town just opposite St Stephen’s Green. On the mezzanine level overlooking the lobby, Citron has Conran’s signature elegant, minimalist luxury with a zesty lime and lemon colour scheme, softly glowing lighting, woven white bar front and dark timber floor. The ambience is Euro-bistro and the modern Mediterranean cuisine is perfectly attuned to how we eat now. Relaxed, funky, fun Citron is one of the very best spots in the city to see and be seen, a great night out starts at Citron and ends in the bar where the ambience is the best.

Delicious dinner

A lovely restaurant in 5 star surroundings. Located on the Mezzanine Level. The food is on the expensive side as you would imagine but a very nice treat. The restaurant was quite busy for a Tuesday evening. The waiter was brilliant, really nice and kept our glasses of water topped up. We ordered... read more

It's a bit off putting being met by not one but 3 peope at the door into the hotel and then being escorted to the lift and to the 1st floor mezzanine. After that I must admit there were lots of staff, however the gap between course seemed inexorable. The rump steak was served with no sauce which meant it... More

Its good but expensive. It was included in our stay however it would have been 22 Euros without that and I would stay you could find a better and cheaper meal else where.

Unbelievable. We were the only table occupied in the restaurant (group of 6), and it took 1 hour for the starter to arrive. The food was mediocre, but the service, given that we were the only group there, was truly appalling. Not what you would expect from a 4 star hotel. The entire experience took 1.5 hours, not by choice,... More

As part of our hotel deal we got a meal at this restaurant. Service to start with was good and as you would expect the food was of a reasonable standard although for me the pasta lacked taste/seasoning. Staff seem to get bored after our main meal, did not check on us and if we wished for a dessert. In... More

Food was well presented and menu rich and vary but unfortunately quite tasteless. Would have helped some extra attention from the waiter

Good service and very flavorful food, but the menu was a little bit fussy--not too many plain options for picky eaters. Overall, very delicious and pleasant though!

Perfection from start to finish. The staff were great, attentive and friendly and took our coats. Love the decor. The Bread & the complimentary dish were amazing. The starters were so pretty felt reluctant to eat such art on the plate. The main was beef, never had such amazing beef, nicest I've honestly had. Melt in your mouth. The dessert... More

Great food, no doubt. Fresh, filling, presented very well, served by staff that knew exactly what you wanted in an almost telepathic fashion. But sweet Moses, there was no atmosphere at all. The restaurant is delicately perched above the hotel lobby and that hotel lobby candour oozed up and onto our tables. It could easily be one of my favourite... More

We had dinner here in January and we were very disappointed. We were in the restaurant for 3 hours having a 2 course meal...the service was very slow and we had to keep reminding staff that we ordered extra bread/wine etc. For starters I had confit duck which came out condensed and looked like 2 slices of white pudding, it...
