Small, intimate, very good service, nice seafood

A good value for the money, particularly for the narrowed selection offered for Early Bird seating before 7 PM. Competent bartender, too. We both had Cod in Mornay sauce, came with 4 side vegetables, roll, and an appetizer for less than €30 each! Extra points for the Hendricks gin and tonic with... read more

Service is great but the food is way below average. You end up paying a lot and leaving dissatisfied

The Lobster Pot is a lovely, family owned seafood restaurant in Ballsbridge, a few minutes from Dublin City Centre. We were staying nearby and craving seafood, and this place exceeded our expectations. Not cheap, but well worth the price. The service is charming!

We went to the Lobster pot purely for the seafood. We were not disappointed. Everything was first class. The service, the wine a good old fashioned restaurant. The food was exquisite and we would definitely recommend

Let me say at the outset that my daughter brought me to the Lobster Pot as a birthday treat. In which case, I do not really know what the final bill came to. It was probably on the high side, but this establishment has a special charm. There is an excellent range of seafood, and it is a plus that... More

We visited the Lobster Pot last evening to celebrate my father's birthday. My parents have been eating here since it opened (a long time ago!). It was busy, we had a lovely table by the window and I was intrigued to see the range of customers, in terms of age, dress, couples, groups & singles. One of the best array... More

We were recommended this restaurant by a taxi driver and we did enjoy the food . A bit pricey but was worth the cost. The menu is varied and quality of dishes was excellent. Service charge is added to the bill.. Worth noting. OurWaiter was superb but the owners are a trifle standoffish ...could be more welcoming.

Famed for its seafood but don't miss out on the superb Roast Duck flamed with a lashing of Grand Marnier , a personal favourite. Long live this gem !

Went with my boyfriend for my birthday and the staff were efficient. The portions were slightly small for the price but nice all the same. Will return
