Ate here for breakfast each morning of our stay. Buffet is beautifully displayed with a wide selection of offerings. The food is delicious and the service is outstanding. You may order off the menu if you wish. The breads and pastry were excellent. Two types of fruit smoothies are available and the fruit is fresh and tasty. The best hot... More

Enjoyed breakfast here while staying at the Westin Dublin. The wait staff were solicitous, even on the days the restaurant was unexpectedly busy. Eggs were cooked to order if you wanted some. Despite the wide variety of foods to suit different palates (fruit, yogurt, granola, smoothies, bacon, eggs, toast, etc.), local Irish products were also showcased. There were mini bottles... More

Awesome continental breakfast buffet, with additional a la carte options. Food is great, so is the ambiance. Staff is friendly and helpful.

Typical buffet breakfast with enough variety to satisfy most travelers. Menu is available if buffet dies not suit you. Again the Westin staff is superb & will see to it that your needs are accommodated.

A group of us lunched here today for our annual lunch with our partners/wives. The whole experience was excellent. A minor difficulty with separate tables for some of our group was resolved immediately. The service superb and the maitre di (Eli) extremely professional in all his dealings with us. The special Christmas menu gave a good choice across all courses... More

I had an occasion to have breakfast here before a transcontinental flight and I have to say that the service was quick and very courteous and the food was fantastic. True buffett is a little pricey versus just a simple breakfast at say Hatch and Sons a few blocks away but if you're in the mood for something a bit... More

We had several breakfasts at The Exchange in this fabulous hotel. Loved it. Great service. Excellent selection of food. Good atmosphere. Highly recommend this great restaurant in the hotel. They even put out coffee and drinks for folks waiting to be seated (even though the wait was only 3 minutes!). And there's a coffee machine to make your own!
