Delicious food, good atmosphere, good value. We were a group of 5 friends meeting to catch up over lunch, and everything that each of us ordered was lovely! The selection included Croque Monsieur, Gambas salad, Vegetarian Filo Pie, Steak Sandwich. The fries with béarnaise are out of this world. Wines were, of course, very nice. The house wine is great and keenly priced. We all opted for the "coffee with tiny selection of sweets" and this was really lovely too. Staff were very helpful. More

We had a table booked for 4pm. Lucky we arrived 15 mins early because we were told that the kitchen was closing from 4-5 and we were advised to look at the menu and order quickly.. it was all very rushed, we didn’t get to view the menu for long enough and of course we were left wondering what would have happened if we arrived on time.. burger and fish was ordered in a rush, it arrived too quickly, quality was average. The hotel is beautiful, cocktails at the bar were a real treat. It was our 20th anniversary so the rushing was disappointing but a nice experience overall. Thank u. More

Afternoon Tea | South City Centre, Dublin 2

Overall I really enjoyed the afternoon tea in the Radisson. However, I booked through Open Table and unfortunately when I arrived I was told I had no reservation. A lovely female worker made it her business to find out exactly what was going on (I feel Open Table hadn't been checked for that day and therefore the reservation was not put into their reservations). Once everything was clarified- we were treated so well with such a high level of service. Everything from the food, prosecco, tea/ coffee was lovely. My partner was awkward with his requests asking for things that were not a part of the fixed menu and they obliged him without any issues. The hotel was extremely busy and there was a private party taking place near us- however, all staff members were on top form and served our table with impressive timing and professionalism. I was very impressed with all of the staff and obviously the only critique was- they need to check their Open Table reservations everyday. More

It was a cold, wet, windy night, but the atmosphere in Industry & Co was warm and festive. The place was buzzing by 9pm. There is a small menu, which I prefer, and everything was delicious. We had a couple of bottles of wine (gulp) and three courses and the bill was 124 euro, so excellent value. Would highly recommend. More
