Normally have had good meals in the Larder but disappointed this time. Starter of crab meat was nice but main course of hake disappointing - hake wasn't the freshest - a bit grey looking and pretty bland. Presentation wasn't wonderful - green beans hidden under the hake on top of sweet potato mash so all a bit of a mush. We also ordered a side of broccoli which was fine, but it came sitting on a big mound of unasked-for and completely cold hummus which was very unpleasant - not sure why it was provided unless chef was just trying to get rid of it. Would still go back in the hope this was a once off, service was all good.

We had a lovely meal at The Larder. It's on the edge of the Temple Bar district, so not quite as busy as in the heart of it,, which was nice. Both our starters and mains we're very good. We had the gnocchi and Jake as our mains. The staff was excellent. Highly recommend The Larder when in Dublin.

Outstanding service and food. The ambient music is louder than needed. As a result, people speak loudly to each othet, which only increases the overall noise level.

Amazing food, staff and atmosphere. We had the early bird and both the starter and main course were absolutely delicious. The staff are so helpful and nice, the restaurant itself has a great atmosphere and is in a great location.

We had a wonderful evening. The food and service were excellent. Would definitely good back the next time we are in Dublin. The music choice was a little odd (top 40 from the 80s and 90s) but we found that in most restaurants in Dublin.

Everything was excellent but definitely will have the Jambalaya Balls starter again. Sicilian Nero D'avolo wine was fab too. Will be recommending to friends.

Great restaurant in the heart of Temple Bar. We had the early bird menu as we were going to a show in Smock Alley Theatre which is a few minutes walk away. A good choice and so reasonably priced and the food was excellent as well as the service and welcome .

Drinks order taken one at a time as in waitress walked away before we could order a second!! The same happened for 3rd and 4th drink. The main waitress was however excellent and handled a complaint about one of the main courses very well. I wouldn’t recommend the lamb shank! The food standard was mixed. There were 4 of us, some really enjoyed their food, others not as much. Having said that, the atmosphere is really nice and the restaurant well laid out. Good city centre location.

My first time there and I'll definitely be back. The staff was friendly and attentive at all times, the food was excellent. I had the duck and my husband ordered the supreme, both dishes were delicious and flavoursome.

I'd only suggest turning some background music on for the ambiance. Considering the dining room is quite small, you will inevitably be hearing other people's conversation.

Overall we had a great experience and we'll be back for sure.

This really is one of the best Restaurants in Dublin. We shared the starter of Dublin Bay prawns, delicious. Then both of us went the Chef's Special, which was Sea Bream with stir fry vegetables and rice. Full of flavours, fish melt in the mouth, fantastic meal. Cheesboard to finish. Wine was excellent and everything about our night was fantastic.
