Cam is at 6pm, there were few people alreadt dining in, restaurant was half-full around 8pm when we left. They have a dedicated vegetarian menu, which is a great thing. We ordered Vegetable Soup which was good, and Baked Salmon - was great!

My favourite place to unwind. Pint of Guinness is really good and the food is excellent. Comfortable and cosy you can't go wrong paying a visit to this brilliant establishment. Staff are the best I have encountered and the chef knows his stuff.

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
