Just finished a wonderful meal of beef croquets appetizer and pasta with eggplant and buffalo mozzarella. The staff was welcoming and helpful with the questions we had. I was so full for dinner I couldn't get dessert but they all looked yummy as other people were ordering. I will go back. Thank you for a lovely evening.

RESTAURANT'S FAVOURITE REVIEW
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2017

The consistently stellar ratings for this restaurant are 100% deserved. I have been to RIBA several times, both for brunch and dinner, casually and for special occasions, and it is always brilliant. The food is excellent and the service is some of the friendliest you are likely to find. In particular I have to mention their full veggie breakfast on... More

Upscale diner atmosphere. The staff was wonderful but the food was very forgettable. Ordered a filet that was nothing more than average. Did not feel that the value was very good either, well over E100 for 2 people for what was basically bar food and a few drinks. Stillorgan was an E20 cab ride from city center each way so... More

Thanks for reviewing us on TripAdvisor and for your useful feedback. Our service team thanks you for your kind complement. It is a shame that the fillet steaks you we're served on the night of your visit did not meet our usually high standards. I can only assure you that we use the highest quality Irish steaks, which go through... More

Nothing too over the top, close to the main road and next to shopping center there is not much ambiance to the place. Food was good and uncomplicated. Nice selection of beer and wine.

The restaurant is not in the most attractive of places, along a busy road, in between a row of shops. However, the bistro, is worth visiting. Very efficient and friendly service. We had a dinner/meeting and the informal atmosphere was exactly what we wanted. Free parking across the road. I had soup of the day as a starter (tomato) which... More

Have been here for dinner more times than I can count at this stage and I leave happy every time. Last time split the chicken wings and a superfood salad with a glass of wine - simple, good value, high quality mid week dinner. Would recommend to anyone looking for a very solid choice for a casual meal.

A wonderful place for brunch or dinner. Excellent food, friendly service, fair prices and cosiness of a neighbourhood restaurant. Tip for tourists: Stillorgan looks quite distant from the city center; though, air coach 700 from Dublin airport goes there and back every 10-15 mins. And a dinner at Riba is definitely worth the travel.

Riba is a quaint restaurant with a very relaxed feel. The food is served in large portions, beautifully cooked and the menu offers a good variety of options. It's well priced and the staff are warm and welcoming. Definitely a new favourite
