Popped in for afternoon coffee and scones. It's a quite large venue and well located at junction of D'Olier St and Westmorland St. The place looks good and is spotless. Staff serving us were friendly and professional. There's a good varied menu with gluten free and vegetarian choices and for city centre, the prices are reasonable.

We popped in here on the way to the comedy show at Chaplins which is just around the corner, no reservation but they squeezed the 5 of us in. Great friendly staff, lovely menu and gorgeous food, all cooked fresh so don't eat here if in a rush. I had the burger and it was lovely, couldn't finish it all!

A very well placed Bistro near Trinity College in Dublin! The food is fantastic! I got new and fresh take on Caesar salad with amazingly seasoned chicken, and bacon, yes you read that right, I got bacon with my salad. I felt absolutely pampered. My foodie-in-training friend got a daube beef dish, where the meat was so deliciously tender she... More

I visit Gallaher and Co Bistro quite regularly for tea and chats with my pal who works nearby. It's warm inviting and has a menu that suits, a quick catch up, a leisurely meal and prices that suit every pocket. I also booked our staff Christmas lunch here and the service was superb and professional. We were a large group... More

One of the most beautiful restaurants I've been to in Dublin. Myself and my boyfriend were here on the 18th of Feb for breakfast. The menu was very diverse with plenty of delicious options. We had a latté each and I can't remember what coffee beans the waiter told us they used, but oh my god, the most delicious coffee... More

Food was tasty, we BYOB'd and the staff were very welcoming and put our bottles in the fridge. Zero compliant, style/atmosphere, food all great and the staff very nice and friendly. Finally so easy to book a table online.

Myself and four friends had dinner here on the 25th November. The food was fantastic and the service was second to none. The staff were really very friendly and we particularly liked the idea of bringing our own wine and paying the €5 corkage. A very memorable night and we will certainly be going back soon.
