Having missed out on going back to the Hungry Monk for several years, we returned for our wedding anniversary and we certainly missed it. The Bistro is absolutely wonderful and the extensive menu of local produce was exceptional. All served by Camilla (from Venice) and Nicholas with a cheerful chat really made the night memorable. Definitely worth a visit when... More

While recently holidaying in Bray, my wife and I, from Northern Ireland, went to the Hungry Monk on the recommendation from a friend, and we were not disappointed. We had not booked, but the very helpful manager found us a table. The food was excellent - the fillet steak was beautifully cooked and presented. The restaurant was very busy during... More

We came here for the last night of our break, as a treat. We cannot fault anything in regard to this restaurant, from our arrival till we left it was perfect. The host, the food, the wine, the atmosphere were great and we will return for more of the same. Thank you.

Went to The Hungry Monk on the recommendation of a local. It was our last night in Ireland and we couldn't have picked a better place to go. While the food was certainly great, it was the atmosphere that made the night. It was one of those places where everybody was having fun, the conversation was lively, and the mood... More

If you order steak this restaurant is great. If you go crazy and order something else from the menu prepare to be very disappointed. So go for the steak...

We eat here on a regular basis and it always delivers. Only last weekend we ate in the newer section downstairs which is lovely. We both had the nicest Wicklow Lobster Linguine, caught "only this morning". So fresh and tasty with a few local brews...heaven!!
