We came here with family & it was great to just walk to a restaurant instead of travelling. There are not many dining restaurants in DL so this has been a welcome addition. The food was good, nice flavour and staff very friendly. Overall, good atmosphere and food,

After a long stroll down the pier, myself and my 4 year old son were starving and we headed to this place as it seemed lively outside. As we walked inside to half empty restaurant there were two male members of staff seating and greeting. Both of them looked me up and down like I was some commoner (admittedly wearing... More

Oliveto's is a beautiful, romantic upscale restaurant. Beautiful scene of the bay if you want to sit outside. The bar is stocked full of wines, and drinks. Lovely.

Thoroughly enjoyed my seafood risotto. If you don't make it to the garden, this place has windows out to the East Pier and a lovely seaview.

I really enjoyed our late lunch in Oliveto. Although it was our hotel's restaurant and I wasn't really sure about visiting it, I did really like it. The interior was nice and we all enjoyed our meals.

We live locally and really appreciate going to Oliveto for a drink, a pasta or light bite. The nice private garden has great views over the bay, so does the restaurant with its large bay widows.

This restaurant is in such a beautiful location with an amazing view of the Pier. The decor is beautiful and spacious, and not cramped at all. I was starving so I chose a cheese-less pizza with rocket, tomatoes, olives and grilled aubergines, and a house salad. My food arrived in record time, I was soooo pleased as it can really... More

It's one of the few places in Dun Laoghaire where you can sit outside and enjoy a drink with the panoramic sea views and harbour activity. We went there on this 4th of July weekend on a sunny afternoon to be told that the garden was closed today "due to the weather". There had been a few showers earlier but... More

Hi Thanks for the note but we are at a loss as the garden was open from 1pm on Sat 4th July and was packed late into the evening and had a fantastic vibe. We did have a party reserve a space in the garden at 1:30pm and a member of our staff may have thought it was exclusive (which... More
