I would highly recommend this restaurant. We had not booked and were very lucky to get seats immediately but I imagine booking is a must. The food is beautiful and the recommendations from the staff were spot on. They know the dishes inside out and were really able to recommend based on our personal tastes. Excellent wine recommendations too.

Exceptional food, cosy atmosphere and the most welcoming and friendly staff! Came here for my graduation dinner with my family and never felt so well looked after in a restaurant! I made my reservation ages ago and the staff remembered and organised a little surprise for me! All in all a wonderful and memorable evening!

Last minute reservation on the same day we crossed over the "big pond" so we weren't looking for fussy or pretentious. Simple menu -- we stayed with the pre-theatre prix-fixe but the à la carte offering was also tempting. I started with a crab salad served with a carrot and fennel salad. Crab was fresh tasting, salad a nice complement.... More

Bucketing down on a dark evening I decided to shelter from the elements and dropped into Hugo's on Merrion Row. Menu was well presented, food - tasteful and house wine - complimented the food. Would recommend.

I was looking for suitable restaurant to finish our trip to Dublin. I was glad I stumbled across this place. It had a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere and we got a table as a walk in on a Monday. They had a great range of wine and our choice was perfect. We chose the Italian selection board which proved a... More

Visited Hugo's for dinner on Friday 4th November 2016 and had the most amazing meal - a good selection on the menu too - and excellent wine. The service was first class - not something that is normal these days - and the atmosphere was great. All in all a really good evening. I would highly recommend Hugo's if you... More
