“Irish Breakfasts with atmosphere”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

In the basement of the Merrion Hotel is the hidden treasure of the Cellar Restaurant. Our family had breakfast two days in a row, and were extremely satisfied both times. The food and beverages were incredibly delicious, and the service was friendly and attentive. Highly recommended.

“Good food”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

Positive first - we had breakfast here during our stay at the Merrion and our waitress was excellent. She was very pleasant and helpful. Our cooked to order breakfast was very tasty. We also had dinner in the cellar restaurant but were disappointed with the service. The restaurant was half-empty and we were seated behind a pillar right beside another couple when many other tables were available. The set menu which is presented on the website was not given to us by the waiter - we had to request it - it seemed like he didn't want to give it to us. Our meals were delicious - which is just as well because not once were we asked by our waiter if we were enjoying our food. This service was quite snooty and condescending which did not comply with the excellent service we received in other areas of the hotel. I also received an email from a member of staff in the restaurant that they would recognise my husband's birthday but this was not followed through. I just felt that because we ordered from the set menu and ordered the house wine that we treated with less regard than other diners. Again the food was lovely but if I stayed at the hotel again I don't think I would dine here.

“A Lovely Gem in The Merrion”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

We were delighted with our dinner our first night in Dublin- at their Cellar Restaurant, set downstairs in a beautiful coved dining room. The lighting and service was perfect! There is a varied menu and the feeling is understated elegance. Their Cellar Pub is a perfect pre or post stop. Highly recommend!

“Great food but needs atmosphere”
Reviewed June 24, 2014

It was a shame that the place was almost empty when we ate here. The food is very good - simple but first class ingredients. I don't know how this could be done but perhaps more identity needed?

The food was great. Service excellent . Try the rib eye or the fish they both were great. They also had a great children's menu.
