Myself & my husband dined here recently and it was a most enjoyable experience. I had the duck for main course & my husband had monkfish, both were absolutely beautiful, top marks for the potato gratin and also i have to complement the breads, the brown bread was just delicious, so moist. A delectable cheese board & two glasses of... More

My second time in Dobbins; my boyfriend treated me to dinner here on Saturday night. We availed of the 3 course early bird menu which had a massive amount of options. The food was delicious- as was the wine and prosecco (and the breads were excellent)! Customer service/ staff were top notch. We were left waiting the correct amount of... More

I have been to Dobbins a few times over last year mostly for Sunday lunch but a reduction of choice on the menu and possibly a new chef or some other event seems to have catapulted their food from good tasty food to very poor, stale overcooked hake ,overcooked pototoes ,dry tasteless steak ,and slow service definitely wont be running...

We always enjoy Dobbins but,on this occasion,they let themselves,and us,down with wine that was not cool let alone cold.We ordered a bottle of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc..the only one they have in that category..it was almost room temperature with the excuse being that it had only arrived in that morning.That was no doubt true and the staff did attempt to rectify...

This was my second time here and my memories served me well. Again, both the food and the service was excellent. Appetizers at our Table included the goat cheese special and the prawn salad which were both Good. Main meals included duck, lamb and fish. All were outstanding but The duck was especially good. Service is impeccable. Wine selection good.... More

We come here fairly regulariy (5-6 times per year) but always for Sunday lunch. Great quality food along with friendly service. My most recent visit was last Sunday and again everything was top notch. Sunday lunch is €26 plus 10% service. That's for 4 courses, there are some supplements if you want to go for steak etc. but there's enough... More

I visited this restaurant with colleagues during a business trip to Dublin. Excellent wine menu with a variety of superb international wines. Absolutely fantastic cuisine! Haven't eaten such incredible food in a long time and the service was fantastic. Definitely a top establishment in Dublin and worth visiting. I will be back!

My husband and I went to Dobbins yesterday evening and although we enjoyed it, it wasn't really worth writing home about. We had absolutely no issue with the staff who were all very friendly, helpful, courteous and efficient but to be honest the whole experience did not live up to the fantastic reviews we had read. We were just glad... More

I was dreading my visit to Dobbins as it was about 8 years since I had been before and I felt that it couldn't be as good again! but it is. It was a wonderful evening from start to finish. The food is delicious, presentation wonderful and service excellent. I would recommend it to anyone for any occasion. Long may... More

As soon as we walked in we were greeted as old friends by Maitre D' Noel and shown into a comfortable booth in their modern art filled airy room. Within minutes Ruthie our server who offered Michelin Star level service in terms of attention, trained professionalism and charm throughout the evening, gave us a basket of fresh breads and offered...
