My friends and I enjoyed a delicious meal in a lovely relaxed environment . The staff were friendly, attentive and professional from the time we arrived until we left. In our opinion we received excellent value for money. Last and by no means least, Dobbins is wheelchair friendly and management go the extra mile. This restaurant will remain on our... More

Delicious food, fantastic service, loved it! I had wanted to dine at Dobbins for many years and finally went with my husband, sister and brother-in-law. We had a great night! Highly recommend.

Dobbins was amazing again- the food was delicious and the service was great. I have an egg allergy, and am usually just told that I can't eat certain things, but the chef went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that I could have the starter of my choice without egg, and even a dessert. Everything tasted great,... More

I love dining in Dobbins. It never ceases to provide great food, drink and overall experience. We ate x 4 here for early bird on Friday with all three courses including pre-drinks, tea/coffee, bottle of wine and service totalling €220. All dishes were highly complimented and the service was excellent, as has always been our experience.

Family went to celebrate parents wedding anniversary and from the moment we arrived until our departure we were looked after by very professional and attentive staff. Due to our numbers, we managed to order each item on every course and without exception everyone was delighted with their meal. They even catered wonderfully for 3 children and one baby making sure... More

This restaurant is strangely located in a nondescript alley very close to the center of Dublin. No retail or tourist or even office space nearby. As the taxicab arrived, I thought he must have made a mistake. But no, there is a romantically lit and inviting entrance. Inside, there are at least four different areas, a main dining room, a...

From the outside you wouldn't think of this as being a restaurant that offered excellent service and amazing food! Have eaten here a few times and I have never been disappointed. The staff are professional but friendly. Lovely atmosphere while dinning. The food is cooked to protection and very tasty. Can be a bit prices but worth every penny.

Don't bother if your vegetarian or vegan. My wife dined here with work friends and phone ahead to see if they could accommodate her vegan diet. They said they were more than happy to but the meal was just four steamed vegetables on a plate. What a joke, she did email the restaurant afterwards but they did not phone or... More
