Have eaten here for brunch/lunch twice and I'm still not sure if I like the place - food 1st time was disappointing on our 2nd visit it was better but the settling is small and can get overcrowded and hot - not terribly relaxing for lazy weekend brunches.

The Lovely Food Company is a neighbourhood gem. The staff welcome everyone like long lost friends and the food and service are second to none. Whether it is morning coffee, a quick or leisurely lunch or a romantic dinner for two, The Lovely Food Company ticks all the boxes. I have a fondness for their gooey chocolate mars bar muffins and their bangers and mash special. They also do a very delicious hot chocolate! The restaurant often have specials and even do a cookery evening or private events and when the weather permits a glass of wine and some good company in their outdoor seating area is a delightful way to spend a few hours.

Had a recent 3 day trip to Dublin and before we went I done some research on the internet on where to eat and decided to book a table at "The Lovely Food Company" for our first evening. We were stopping in Point Village so the restaurant was a little bit out for us to get too, but took a taxi from the hotel and enjoyed seeing the areas away from Temple Bar. Terenure is a lovely area to visit.
On arrival at the restaurant we were greated by our first name and shown to our table, We booked for the tue evening where there was a special 3 course meal with a bottle of wine for 2 at a price of 50 Euros, and we werent dissapointed. All in all we had a fantastic meal, it was worth every penny. We left the restaurant and walked just down the road to get the bus into Temple Bar.
There is nothing bad to say about this place, its a little hidden Gem that I think everybody taking a trip to Dublin should visit. From the minute you arrive, lovely warm bread placed on table, to the fantastic service and lovely food.
Thank you for making our trip a wonderful experience.

I eat here for lunch or breakfast about five times a week, and sometimes I come twice in one day. I live locally so it is handy and to be honest, it is more of a local than a destination place. The scones are homemade and buttery, they come with butter, cream and jam and are delicious. The coffee is good and the place is spotless. The breakfast is excellent value and very generous, but omit the bacon which is the streaky synthetic smoked variety so it's a bit of a let-down. The chicken on French baguette is good, the salads are more exitic than usual (duck with raspberry vinegar) and if there is a parfait on the lunch menu, order it as it is very good. The real benefit here is the service: they have the most genuine helpful lovely staff who seem to find it a pleasure to serve you which is such a rarity. They do a special each day at lunch which is about €8 or €10 and it often comes with salad and good bread. Like any good local, the food is good but not brilliant so it is not a place for an Irish Times reader to make a pilgrimage to.
