The food at Vermilion is always reliably great. I have never had anything that wasn't tasty, interestingly flavouted, well cooked and beautifully presented. Good atmosphere and attentive staff too.

I really love this place. Went with a group of friends coming up to Christmas. Food, was excellent as was service, even though they were busy. All five of us cleared our plates. Here are some photos of what we had. All delicious. Treated myself to a Groupon voucher and going again in February. Looking forward to it already.

Went early for a meal last Friday evening 6.00pm with the result there were very few people in the Restaurant. Normally this would mean the atmosphere wouldn't be great however due to the fantastic hosting skills of our waiter and the staff behind the counter it was very pleasant. As it was our first visit we were hoping for the... More

Very expensive for what it is – based on reviews was expecting a lot more. Normal Indian but very pricey – 20e for just your main without rice, and the main is all sauce with very little meat & veg/nuts/spices. Sawadee around the corner is nicer and a lot better value in my opinion

We use only the highest quality ingredients in our cooking so cannot compete with every small local takeaway/restaurant on price but most of the feedback we get is that Vermilion is very good value for money. We have lots of great value options such as all evening... More

Really terrible dining room which looks like they just opened for the first time that night and have not had enough time to decorate. Food is laden with cream and butter and too rich to eat. Kids selection is terrible - really greasy, cheap food. Expensive. Will not be back.

Sorry that you didn't enjoy your experience in Vermilion. We get lots of compliments about how lovely the dining room is and we take great pride in the appearance and atmosphere of our restaurant - so I have to admit I was somewhat surprised by your comments on the decor. Some of our most popular dishes have cream based sauces... More

Great food and dishes that you wouldn't find elsewhere, so I will go back for more. Slightly odd decor. Something funny with the staff, although I can't put my finger on it. And yes, I think someone did offer to take my coat, a courtesy rather unknown in most restaurants in Ireland!

The food is good but the portions are really small and I don't like the service either . Won't be back there

Thanks for your feedback. I'm sorry to hear that you found the portions small - we actually often get comments that they are too big and have lots of customers looking for goody bags! But appetites and tastes vary and it's almost impossible to please everyone all the time. I'm sorry to hear you don't plan to return to Vermilion More
