We had dinner in this very busy restaurant on a Friday night stay. The menu was fine but the portions were very small and no vegetables were served only a few baby boiled potatoes per person. . My Duckling was tasty but it would not have filled a big guy ! The restaurant was packed with tourists as well as... More

That was the 2th time when we were in this lovely restaurant. And thanks we got a very professional, friendly and gorgeous waitress. She made my parents day who celebrated their 50th anniversary. Her name was Krisztina. I remembered that because many times she introduced herself and always said Krisztina with K, R and S, Z :) Was funny. The... More

We four had the most delicious lunch here. The setting is absolutely beautiful. We were looked after so well by our wonderful waiter, Pavel who was so kind and helpful and has the perfect manner. The food was superb. This was such a memorable lunch to celebrate three birthdays and a family get-together. Just perfect!

We ate here a few days ago with my husband and his family,who live in Dublin, whilst holidaying in Ireland including Dublin. The Saddle room has an elegant feel-great ambiance and the staff were exemplary. So why only 3 circles? Because the scallops were THE smallest I have ever been served- I almost got out a jeweller's loop to see... More

Had breakfast on our stay in Dublin and it was outstanding! The food was tasty and there was a lot of it. Anything you can think of on a breakfast buffet and some more. Our server was very good and attentive. This was truly a wonderful breakfast experience.

The husband and I were going to celebrate our pearl wedding anniversary and so I suggested the Oyster Bar in the Shelbourne. We ended up in the Saddle Room - more of which later.

This is certainly one of the best meals I've had in my life, really good food, and the place is so romantic! I went there with my wife, and well, don't expect to pay less than a 100 euros, we spend around 200 euros but it was worth it, specially because of the place and the presentation of the dishes,...

In this day and age going for dinner and spending a small fortune is becoming the norm with most restaurants having quick in & out service with no frills.

I am always puzzled about how amazing restaurants have young inexperienced staff on their door, almost as is they want to put their worst foot forward.
