Italian
A glasshouse restaurant, where the weather is our wallpaper. We serve breakfast and dinner 7 days a week. We do lunch on weekdays and brunch at the weekend.

Our New York – Italian menu is simple and delicious. Meats, fish, vegetables, fruits, herbs and dairy delivered daily by local suppliers. The restaurant vibe changes from a laid back sunrise through a buzzing sunset. A view like no other in Dublin, cityscape to countryside. No fuss, no formality, book a table and enjoy.

Sophie’s Bar is at the very heart of our rooftop restaurant. Pull up a stool and get comfortable at any time, day or night to take in the incredible views of the Dublin skyline while our amazing team of bartenders create a world-class cocktail for you.

Head out to our Rooftop Terrace, where we have sun loungers when it’s hot, blankets and heaters when it’s not.

Waiter was extremely rude to us,
Pizzas were extremely greasy, cheese falling off of them.
Every drink we ordered tasted like straight liquor with no mixer which made each of them extremely i enjoyable
I was thoroughly disappointed by sophies and definitely wouldn’t return or recommend to anyone I know
