What a find we had a wonderful meal so reasonable but it was the service that was so great .. When you enter this restaurant it is like being transported to a different country .. A visit to this restaurant gives the feeling of being on holidays to an exotic location ..it was such an experience that conversation flowed ..... More

The food at Damascus Gate is incredible! Truest authentic and generous portions. I recommend having the owner order for you - he knows best! The Lebanese wine he recommended was also fantastic. The service here may rival the food. All in all, a must do!

I enjoyed this traditional food, It was a shame to leave a little bit of food because the dishes are good served, enough food to get full. The staff was very kind and the decoration is beautiful

it was our first time to an Arabic restaurant in Dublin and we were surprised at the cool decoration, background music and friendly staff in Damascus Gate. The food portions are huge - I couldn't finish my last dish despite it was delicious! -, the hummus, the lamb, the rice, the bread... everything is very tasty. You won't be disappointed.... More

The food was lovely but found it's quite expensive though..The sitting outsdie with the shisha makes this place a bit different in the area..

seriously where do I begin? The lows are so numerous it is going to take a long long time to enumerate all of them. But if you are reading this you want to know if you can go there: the answer is: DON'T seriously from the food to the service to the dishonest apology with nothing in return as promised.... More
