Very good food and exceptional service

A group of 30 is always a challenge to a restaurant. No sign of that challenge at Dobbins. The service was excellent and extremely patient with a couple of individuals in the group I was with.

The food was excellent, the house wine very good and the service was exceptional. I'd recommend the pork belly.

This restaurant never let's u down! The food is always of a very high standard, it's presented beautifully and tastes delicious. The service in the restaurant is brilliant and cannot be faulted. From the greeting at the door, to the service throughout and the friendly nature of the staff it is one of the best I have received in Dublin.... More

I organised a Friday night dinner here for a group of 30 people that are members of a dining/social group. We got a very warm welcome on arrival at the restaurant for pre-dinner drinks. There is a bar at the front of the restaurant and a lovely outdoor drinks area at the back of the restaurant, so there is plenty... More

It's a nice room with booths left and right until the room opens under some glass bringing in some welcome July sunshine. A nice atmosphere and really engaging staff. We had the crab starter and very generous hake fillets for mains. Starters generally at €4.50 and €16 for mains. That's good value in 2015 Dublin. There's a reasonable choice of... More

There is a saying that if you provide a great product/service at a reasonable customers will find you. That is certainly true with Dobbins. Friends of ours drove a back alley (they promise it is safe at night) and up to Dobbins. Looking as though it had opened recently we had a delicious meal. Our chicken and pear salads were... More

Was back in Dobbins last night for the first time in a very long while. I used to frequent it when working in the area and remember it for its excellent fare. Four of us went in for an early bird and were really pleased with the selection and quality. We were spoiled for choice with starters, mains and dessert,... More
