This is a great place to visit when the sun is shining. Superb large beer garden at the front and very well stocked bar. Food is good without being outstanding. Have had good and bad experiences gastronomically but never get tired of the view and efficient service. Definitely a place to visit on a sunny day in Dun Laoghaire!

We had a fantastic christening lunch in Oliveto. The guests all commented on the food. The Oliveto antipasti boards were a great hit with guests and I had the sea bream for main course which was beautiful and delicate. Some of the guests chose pizzas and couldn't finish them so the staff packed them up and we brought them home.... More

This is the second time we have come here for a birthday lunch, the last time in the summer and had a big table with fabulous views over the harbour. This time our party was smaller, only five, and the place was really buzzing. Previous times the place was only half full, and usually on a Tuesday they only have... More

We had a WONDERFUL day yesterday for our daughters christening in the Library Bar, private Room at Oliveto. Thank you so much to the team for such a special day. The private rooms are really really lovely – such a great vibe and so well proportioned - the space was dressed beautifully. The food was every bit as incredible as... More

A great restaurant and a super addition to Dunlaoghaire. Oliveto is relatively new to its current location and they have done a superb job with the restaurant and the out door / garden terrace. We dropped in for an early bite to eat following a trip into town over Christmas. The welcome was warm and the restaurant looked really well.... More

This place is amazing!!! located on the seafront in Dun Laoghaire. A group of girlfriends and I had a great dinner here. The food was great and the service was impeccable! The atmosphere was buzzing and we will all definitely be back. Warmly recommended, a very agreeable evening.

Unfortunately my most recent visit to Oliveto will be my last. I hadn't been here in over 8 months, but went this week. My friends and I waited over 90 minutes for our starters which arrived cold and unappealing. The waiting staff said they were missing staff, which I assume were the chefs. Fast forward nearly 2 hours until the... More

This review highlights what is wrong with open forum review sites like Trip Advisor. The person who wrote the review was part of a large Christmas booking and was acting out of concert with the rest of the party. They asked to sit down late as they were enjoying drinks in our library bar. Booking for 8:30 meant they actually... More

I have had the pleasure of being a repeat visitor to this fine establishment.I never tire of the service and the really attentive and friendly staff. As an additional plus the Beer Garden / Italian Terrrace is wonderful with amazing (both day and night time views of Dun Laoghaire Harbour and surrounds. I will continue to visit for a long... More
