Amazing food at a great price, the portion was also fantastic. I love their Hummus and Falafel. One of the best in the Dublin city area. The best thing was Dessert THE COCONUT ICECREAM. It was fabulous like I can write out of the world....I am giving 4 star just because I think Everyone was feeling a bit Cold inside the restaurant. Otherwise it worth to visit 100%.More

Rotana was recommended by my daughter so I said why not, sure I will give it a try. And boy was I pleasantly surprised. The ambiance was great and the staff were excellent but the "piece de resistance" was the food. My wife and I...shared a Mezze for 2 as a starter and it was great. This was followed by lamb kafta and chicken mishwe dishes - exceptionally tasty. If you are looking for a restaurant which offers excellent value, superb food and friendly and efficient service, look no further than Rotana. - will now be on our list of favourite restaurants.More

On a recent trip to Dublin, we ordered from Rotana for dinner. I ordered the Chicken Shawarma (roasted thin slices of marinated chicken) It came with a mixed salad, garlic sauce on the top, pomegranate dressing and Lebanese pits bread. Delicious!

Went here for a friends birthday on a quiet Monday night and was pleasantly surprised. The food was gorgeous and our waiter was very attentive and made a big effort to make sure we were comfortable, and even helped us deliver our birthday cake to...our friend! We will be back!More

Wet and windy night, we arrived just on time for our booking but they didn't have a table for us, so they asked us and another group to WAIT OUTSIDE in the pouring rain, I couldn't bloody believe it. It's our own fault for actually...doing it and standing outside for over five minutes in the miserable weather, I think we did it because we were shocked more than anything. When we actually got given a table the service was really all over the place. We got given one water glass between the five us, we asked for more, had to ask again, before eventually being given two wine glasses. Essentially, it took them an age to actually give us enough glasses for a table of five, the most simple of stuff... This trend continued as one member of the table was left short on cutlery when the food arrived as well. The food was quite nice but the night but was really tarnished by the service, which put a big dampener on the evening. Would not recommend!More

There is nothing like the mezze platter at the Rotana ! The mezze plate (which is quite huge) is a selection of all the best specialities : Hummus, Falafel, dolmas ... And everything is fresh and tasty ! I have had a lot of Lebanese...in the past, but nothing like this. Also my favourite thing to do there, is to have a shisha on their terrace when the weather is a bit warmer. You can also have their very authentic tea, it feels like being transported in Lebanon.More

Great food if you feel like having Mediterranean meal while u are in Dublin. Cozy atmosphere, very nicely decorated and nice place for couples to have dinner at a budget price.
