Caoimhe was our server, very sweet. The food was also good. Loved the lamb burger and seafood chowder. We sat in the bar area which had long tables that are shared. It was fun.

Voted the NO 1 Bar by Trip Advisors in Jan 2016 !!!! The Lotts consists of a lounge and a bar. The lounge is modern with mosaic tiled ceilings and floors and beautiful chandeliers, where the bar is a rustic old style Irish snug bar ( Also the smallest bar in Dublin ) The Lotts Lounge is extremely popular for food from traditional Irish breakfast served all day up to our most popular dish, - Our Steak on the stone. We offer one of the best deals in Dublin with 2 Sirloin steaks with any sides plus a bottle of our wine of the month for only €45. This deal is also on special Sunday-Wednesday for only €35 served with side salad ( extra sides only €3 Each ) Reservations are Essential at weekends and busy days in the city / recommended for other days to avoid disappointment
