Food was excellent (King Crab fab) but I was disappointed with the chips are they were like over chips, maybe real potato chips would be better. Everything else was amazing

SOLE is one of the best restaurants I have ever been too, maybe the best! Nothing could have been done better. Everything was perfect from entrance to exit. If there any kind of extras you want the staff will help you and get you what you want. The staff were amazing and always had a smile on their face but the best part was the food!! Absolutely perfect! GO TO SOLE!!

We were barely seated when we were invited to order a drink. The drinks never arrived. We then ordered food and wine. The very expensive wine was served without as much as a word from the waiter/ sommelier??
The food came and went and then we ordered dessert: panna cotta. To best of my knowledge, this dessert should be set but ours was in a jar and runny like a yoghurt. We had to wait 20 minutes for coffee. We eat out in Dublin’s finest restaurants every weekend and this was an experience I wouldn’t want to repeat.
Sole would not be an ambassador for dining in Dublin

Dear Daniela, I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your dinner with us, however I am very surprised to see your review after personally having a conversation with you on the night and you told me that everything was great? I would have to disagree with you as our menu is far from ordinary. Our culinary team work tirelessly to source and use the best sustainable ingredients that Ireland has to offer to create dishes of the highest quality. Yours sincerely Victor Nedelea General Manager

Deboning the fillet of sole tableside was expertly done, as was how the well the fish was prepared. All the food from the crab and fig tartlet appetizers through to the passion fruit mousse was excellent. One of the better meals I have had recently. Thank you.

We love visiting Sole and this time was no exception. The food was amazingly fresh and the service friendly and attentive. We shared the char grilled prawn, smoked salmon, local oysters (to die for!) and the scallops and king crab main. For seafood lovers, this is a must dine. You can enjoy all your favorites and not have too heavy a meal in the end. Can't wait until our next visit!

Myself and my hubby went to celebrate his 50th birthday. Sole did nothing but impress! Starting our evening with a cocktail at the bar - the Raspberry Collins was sublime, we were looked after by Llubo for the evening. Service was second to none and we ordered the Captain's Tower. Honestly the best seafood in Dublin. Please go and discover this amazing restaurant, you won't be disappointed 👏👏👏👏👏❤❤❤❤❤

Preis - Leistung Top.
Schade war nur, dass der Kellner und das komplette Team, trotz mehrmaligem Erwähnen des runden Geburtstages meines Mannes, nicht gratuliert hat. Ich hatte vorab einen Tisch bestellt und den Geburtstag per Mail angekündigt und auch um einen ruhigen Tisch gebeten. Leider hat man das nicht berücksichtigt.
Zum Schluss gab es aber doch noch eine kleine Praline für meinen Mann zum Geburtstag.
Trotzdem zu empfehlen und seeeehrrrr le ker.

We had a variety of oysters to start, which were delicious. Our main courses were quite good and substantial. I had asked for a small salad and I received a bowl of what I would call a relish of red pepper, tomato and onion. The brownie for dessert is actually a hot molten cake with a brownie crust. Very decadent. I will return.

Absolutely a 10 out of 10 for a Dublin seafood restaurant. I could not recommend a restaurant more.
Food and service were EXCELLENT. We had the seafood tower with lobster for 2. However we felt the lobster wasn't really worth the 40euros so next time we would reallocate that money towards some other item on the menu. The mussels in the cream sauce was absolutely AMAZING!!! if you go to Sole and don't get the mussels you are a fool, unless of course you don't like mussels. The cream base was incredible and would make a fantastic soup base. We used the extra sauce for dipping the bread in and loved every drop.
In short GO TO SOLE & get the mussels!!!
BTW it looks like they have great beef based on the aging beef refrigerators, however we didn't try it.


Enjoy!!!
