I had visited Hugo's some years previously and whilst the quirky front room of the '30s décor and furnishings was lovely old school, the food did not impress overmuch. However this time under the skilful hands of relatively new Chef, Maggie Roche, we had exceptional food from a really enterprising menu. Starting with a bottle of Prosecco (eu36.50) we moved...

My wife and I,and another couple enjoyed a beautiful meal here last weekend. Three of us had the starter of Pressed ham hock, garden pea mousse, pickled girolles, Verjus and gooseberry jam, and it was one of the best starters I ever tasted. The other starter our table ordered was a lightly spiced cauliflower soup which I'm told was very... More

Thought I was back in the 20's (even though I wasn't even born). The decor was old school, the food was modern and full of flavour and the background music was eclectic. But it all worked perfectly. Situated close to St Stephens Green this place is worth a visit. Might be better to book in advance.

Visited Hugo's for third time over four years on visits to Dublin. Have always enjoyed dining experience at Hugo's which is very convenient to our St Stephen's Green Area hotel. Very comfortable dining area with excellent service. Food is very good although not an overly wide choice of options. Very solid wine list as well. Would definitely recommend Hugo's but... More

3rd visit in this restaurant in so many years, the food and service has always been very good. I also love the interior which is sophisticated and relaxing at the same time.

We had a wonderful, relaxing early dinner at Hugo's with its tasteful, cozy decor, excellent service, and delicious food. Our waiter, a native Dubliner with a surprisingly British accent, was charming and helpful. The extensive wine list had numerous offerings by the glass and a good range of price points.The menu features artfully presented, locally-sourced food. Our party of five... More

Excellent wine. I had the pulled pork and slaw baguette for lunch. This is the only place in Dublin I have ever had pulled pork that I have been happy with. A chocolate mousse with brownie bits for dessert. Fantastic. I recommend.
