Really enjoyable meal, great service and good atmosphere. The menu is small for choice but you can see its because they source local produce and want to do a smaller menu justice. Would definitely recommend to others and the local beer they brew is very nice to!!!

Every time I’m in a Dublin I try to stop by The Larder. The service is always impeccable and the food delicious. My favorite thing is the dessert, chocolate pot. It is decadent and just the right amount of chocolate for me. I can’t wait for my next visit.

We found this restaurant by accident last year and when we had a friend visiting Ireland recently, we knew it would impress. What can I say smashing food and drink, with great staff at reasonable prices.

What a great find. We celebrated my husbands birthday in the Larder Restaurant.
The staff was super friendly, funny and helpful. The food was amazing, we had the Beef Carpaccio and Crab starter followed by the duck and the sirloin steak.

I would definitely return again.

The Larder was an excellent dining experience with fine hosts and great food. We went early since we travelled all night to get to Dublin, and were sure we would "crash" early. However, they have an early dining and menu with special pricing. We highly recommend this restaurant -- but book early as it is small and often full.

My husband and I had a one night layover in Dublin. We are not into the bar scene so we chose this restaurant for its quiet yet city center location. The restaurant had a nice quite ambience and we were sat by the window with a nice view ( a request we made on open table which was honoured). However, service was not as expected. The waitress did not offer to review the specials with us. When asked she only listed the items without a detailed description with how they were cooked or dressed. Stay away from the duck, over cooked. Although the restaurant was not busy at the time, we felt like we were chasing the waitress all night to get us drinks then the bill etc. overall nice restaurant but feels like the staff were new or the restaurant was new and it did not have the workflow or the dinner cook times down yet.

I was there for their Early Bird menu and it drew quite a crowd. Book early to avoid disappointment. The menu had more than adequate choices across the courses and each was delicious - I'd particularly recommend the Hake if available. Cheesecake was simply glorious. Attentive staff and the whole experience was excellent. One of the best places in Dublin!

l really liked it here. I met some colleagues here for lunch. We were given a nice table in the corner and served by extremely friendly staff. The seafood chowder is well above average and not swamped in creamy gloop and the salads are great. The main thing was the excellent value and quality in a hugely over-priced city. The Larder is well worth a visit.

We visited The Larder for our 2nd wedding Anniversary and I’m so glad we did. Being a quiet Monday we had the choice of seats and we picked the window seat, which was so cosy, looking at a rainy evening go by in Dublin. The staff we’re very friendly and relaxed. Some nice tunes playing in the background set a very chilled and ambient atmosphere. We went for the early bird menu, which had a great selection at a really good price. Food was served very quickly and I have to say tasted amazing. Crayfish starter followed by an amazingly creamy Gnocchi dish, all washed down by a very, very nice glass of Pinot Noir. Quite stuffed, so ended up sharing a desert....Ladies of Seville, YUM !!

So happy to find this little gem. Will definitely be going back to work my way through the menu !!

We were greeted and shown to our table promptly. We had a super table which was private but still part of the lively atmosphere. I'm very glad we didn't have one of the tables in the middle of the room which seemed squashed in. The food was really excellent, well presented and tasty. The service was fine. Perhaps a little brusque at their busiest but overall courteous and friendly. Definitely recommended.

Each in a group of 4 ordered the Early Bird, which discounts a starter and an entree (and dessert if you have room). Soup was especially good.
