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.

Had a really good evening meal here; all four of us very impressed with our food and the service. The battered onion rings are gorgeous! The starters were almost a meal in themselves and then the different types of steak on hot stones were awesome.
