We ate here twice on our stay in Dublin. It was awesome. On the first night, my partner and I had a cosy meal by the fireplace. The mains were good, and especially the hand made chips! The chips are a must try! The staff were really good as well. With it being our first trip to Ireland, she gave... More

This is the 2nd time I've been to The Sussex. The first was a business lunch. I was so impressed I took another colleague this time for dinner. He was quite impressed with the menu and the wine list. He had the calamari appetizer and I had their soup of the day. Then he chose the Pork Belly - which... More

Lovely restaurant for lunch. They offer great value lunch specials. The soup/sambo combo for €10 is a winner. I would eat here once a week and I have only ever had a good experience. Would recommend.

Ate here with friends recently and was very pleased. From arrival the service was helpful and attentive. The food was very tasty and menu quite broad. When my vegetarian friend was inquiring re options, they offered to prepare something to her individual liking. The decor, place settings, lighting etc, were all lovely and the location (just off Leeson st bridge... More

My wife and I chose to eat here twice - once was quite early (5:30pm or so) and once was after 9pm. The food is very good, as is the atmosphere, but you should definitely book ahead. I would also recommend dining before 6pm which qualifies for an early diner fixe prix menu which is significantly less expensive than the... More

We walked into the Sussex on a Saturday night without a reservation. Fortunately for us, it was a bit early in the evening and they sat us at 'the bar' which is really just 4 stools. We had a delightful time as the food was perfect and the staff would chat with us as they were making drinks and prepping... More

Another place visited based off reviews.on trip advisor. Didnt disappoint. Service was excellent, and food was cooked perfectly. We sat by the open kitchen and watched as our food was made to order as we shipped on wine. I highly recommend making a reservation.

We have been here on Saturday the 12th November after reading good reviews on Tripadvisor, but it was absolutely a waste of money, because they don’t offer nothing more than an Irish Pub does at half price! We come from Italy where we have a Hotel with Restaurant in Tuscany and we know how to prepare food so you can... More

This restaurant was recommended to me by a work colleague, it didn't disappoint. We had excellent food & wine, there was a lovely relaxed atmosphere. The staff were very helpful & friendly. Would definitely visit again when I'm next in Dublin.
