Visited on Sunday for lunch following my granddaughter's christening. Staff could not have been more friendly or attentive. The food was delicious with highlights being the crab starter, the spring roll and the red wine braised beef special. We had the private dining room upstairs which was perfect for a private party. A wonderful venue, highly recommended.

Have not been here for a year or more and had forgotten how good it is. Just the two of us on Friday night. She had prawn starter and Hake for main course, while I had salmon starter and duck for main. Tiramisu and chocolate brownie for desserts. Fantastic quality and superb value. Service is second to none as always.... More

We were waited on by Ignacio who was very knowledgeable and simply fab all evening. The food was fantastic and we had purchased... More

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

Slow cooked beef with a veg and potato... Very vague considering she only had one special to remember. Took a while to be greeted by a server and it was... 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
