Hugo's is conveniently located just off St. Stephen's Green on Merrion Row, so ideal if you are visiting the southside city centre in Dublin. We visited Hugo's recently for a Saturday lunch utilising a €19 voucher which entitled us to two main courses and two glasses of wine. Hugo's is an attractive, french-style restaurant which caters for lunch and dinner. The interior is slightly "clubby" with dark wood walls, wine racks, and dark furniture (on the main ground floor area - downstairs is a separate dining room with light walls and furnishings). The lunch main coruse menu is short but reasonably comprehensive. We chose a sirloin steak and the beef bourguignone (being a French-style restaurant). Other alternatives included a fish dish, a vegetarian dish, as well as a combo comprising a bowl of soup and a gourmet sandwich (which for under €10 in Dublin city centre looks like good value) - strangely enough, no chicken dish on the day we were there. The sirloin was good, with chips and a salad, the beef bourguignon was less impressive: the meat was either not trimmed enough or had not cooked enough for the fat to melt away, and it appeared that there was an excess of red wine. The wine included in the offer was red or white, with no indication of what type of grape: the red was a little basic, but okay with food. Service was acceptable (had to ask several times for more water); the place was extremely popular (you would need to book). I have eaten previously at lunchtime during the week and found the food then to be an improvement on our exerience (notably of the beef bourguignone). NB: Toilets (very clean) are downstairs, so facilities are not disabled-friendly.
