In a sea of overpriced restaurants and pubs Cafe Carlo was a pleasant surprise. A perfect place to start off your day before getting on the hop on - hop off city tour. Good food (not great) and a clean site.

we had a meal today at this restaurant, and as soon as we had ordered told that an additional charge was added to one of the meals we had ordered, ask to speak to manager , but never arrived, only a small increase but not on the menu, we paid and left.

Arrived here at 8.30 with last orders at 9 pm but were warmly welcomed. One of our party arrived at 9.15 but the chef agreed to cook something for her too. The food was delicious and the service exemplary. Highly recommended. I had the Irish stew which was delicious.

Me & my younger sister visited Carlo's on a recent trip to Dublin. From the outside it didn't look too great but once we entered we were greeted by a friendly young waitress who sat us to a table straight away, gave us menus & took our drink order. We were in time for the early bird menu & we both got a fabulous 3 course meal plus a soft drink each & the total bill was €43. Fab value for money! The food was cooked perfectly & could not fault it at all. Even though there was not much choice on the menu I'm sure there is something for everyone there. Definitely recommended !!

Went here for lunch recently and had a great meal, so when we were stuck for somewhere to go for an evening meal, we returned to Cafe Carlo. Our waitress was obviously inexperienced and English was not her first language, however that was a minor hiccup. We weren't aware but we were in time for the Early Bird menu and got a very good discount on the meal prices. Good sized entrees and mains, so good in fact that we passed on dessert - and everything is very reasonably priced. The restaurant itself is spotless.
