Just went for a coffee with family today. Love this place! Just lovely atmosphere and calm in a busy city. Love the cinema too. Had decaf soya latte. Lovely.

We stumbled across this cafe completely by chance. I was so excited to see vegan options on the menu. I was able to order tea with soya milk, and a lovely burger with chips. The food was well presented and tasty. The waited was also very friendly taking time to ask about our time in Dublin.

this is my new favourite place to go in Dublin. If you become a member you can get 10% discount on food and entry to great films. Its a great movie venue, coffee shop even restaurant. In fairness the food is not outstanding and my salad was soggy and other stuff also not great. The Pinot Grigot is great though,... More

This was a good place to stop for lunch. We were just off the plane and finding our feet. It's right in Temple Bar and the food was simple. It's not going to win awards but they do serve great coffee. But it's the atmosphere which you want in a place like this as it is less touristy and the... More

One of my favourite eating places in Dublin. Also lovely little intimate cinemas with great films. Good for food but also for a drink or a coffee.

IFI run an offer monthly called 'Feast your Eyes'. One attends a film and then eats at the IFI Restaurant - a set menu based on the film, all for €20. Last night we went to Brooklyn (a great movie) and ate afterwards. The menu offered bacon and cabbage, clam spaghetti and four cheese pasta. I ordered the clam spaghetti... More

Really likes my visit here. The outside area in particular is very nice - it's strange to be in the heart of the city and have no noise. Would recommend to anyone.

Dublin, a lot of restaurants like many other cities in the world. You can choose any restaurant but never find a good one. If you want to taste something amazing, then you should definitely go to IFI. Well located, very kind employees who give you good advices and... of course, the food. Not expensive, just the usual prices but the... More

Excellent location & a quiet spot in sometimes crazy Temple Bar to catch up with friends over a bite to eat, either before a movie or just when you are in town after shopping. The nut burger is really tasty, while were were part of a table of 6 we happened to mention that we would share the burger as... More
