Oliveto's in Dun Laoghaire was one of my favourites restaurants in Dublin. I went with my friends to drink a beer and enjoy the views of the sea because the restaurant terrace is in front of the sea and it is wonderful. Well, when the sun shinnes :) . Then, we had a dinner in the restaurant, the food was... More

Outside the tables are perfect for a drink whilst sitting in the sun and enjoying the view of the beautiful bay. The restaurant has a great atmosphere and the food we had was lush. Good service.

We had a lovely seafood risotto. The restaurant is nicely decorated-according to current trends. Love the lamps! This restaurant has awesome view over the harbour - the best beer garden in Dun Laoghiare! Or perhaps in Dublin itself.

We ate there twice in a week. Once on our own and a second time with a large group (we were in Dun Laoghaire for a sailing event). I really liked that the choices were fairly limited - 6 starters, 5 types of Pizza, 5 Pastas and 6 mains. It gives me confidence that they will cook what the have... More

Eaten at this restaurant twice most recently at a company event. The food they provided was excellent and I have never come across such happy and helpful staff. If the weather is good you can sit outside in a garden area with great views of the harbour.

Just stopped for a quick bite to eat and delighted we did. I expected dark pub type fare and ended up in a bright and welcoming restaurant with a lovely atmosphere. I had a love pasta ragu.

Hi Thanks for your review which is great to read. Just to clarify on the pasta, the ragu is served with our house pappardelle pasta, which is a wide ribbon pasta that we make daily in-house. Some of our other pasta dishes (bucatini, linguini) use dried pasta as they go better with the respective ingredients/sauces but a ragu is always... More

We have dined in Oliveto couple of times and keep coming back - the food is really lovely. The view to the pier is very nice so if it is dinner in the evening with your loved one or few beers in the garden with friends - the atmosphere is always nice. Food: we have had a different things from... More
