We had a great evening at Hugo's. Great service and wonderful food. We were disappointed that they don't have a full bar so no cocktails but everything else made up for that. My Caesar salad was wonderful as was my wife's soup. Her chicken was devine and my braised beef was superb. Great atmosphere. I highly recommend.

We had dinner here for a group of 15. We were set up in the basement and had the entire area for ourselves. The food was wonderful, and the waiter was very attentive. The small children were allowed to order off menu, and were served pasta, which made them very happy. A wonderful experience and we would go back again.

Hugo's was great - from the atmosphere and service to the food, but I thought it was pricey - or perhaps that's just Dublin? Dinner for four, with two bottles of wine, came to 275 Euros (without a tip). However, the food was very good - from the scallops sarter, to the duck - served nice and pink. Accompanied by... More

We stopped in for lunch as we arrived in Dublin, and I'm glad we did. The food was delicious, the service excellent and the ambience was very warm. Gina the owner was so outgoing and shared some wonderful restaurant options in the areas we we planning on visiting throughout Ireland. Her recommendations were as spot on as the lunch was!

Excellent lunch at Hugo's. Had a tasty lamb wrap after a nice curried soup !! The ambience was very nice and the waiter Jonathan was excellent. We were just starting a trip to Ireland and the owner Gina overheard that we were looking for other places to eat great food. She took the time to write down many places and... More

We were a group of five friends at Hugo's for dinner. The atmosphere was really nice - helped by the friendliness of our host Gina. She was a lot of fun and engaged with us all night. The food was excellent - nicely served and hot. A good wine list and good service. We will be back before we leave... More

The wife and I saw this little gem and just walked in and were seated straight away. It looks inviting from the outside and lives up to the looks. Friendly comfortable intimate little restaurant with fabulous produce that is well cooked and presented. Worth the visit and very reasonable for the quality

We found Hugo's on our first night in Dublin. The food was marvelous - elegant, fresh and simple. A mix of locals and tourists. Service pleasant, unobtrusive and professional.
