Have visited Saba a couple of times while in Dublin for business or with family/friends, and I keep coming back. Whether you stick to appetizers (smoked trout and chicken wings are good) and drinks or have one of the entrees, I have not been disappointed. Prices are reasonable. Atmosphere is somewhat upscale, hip, but casual. Service has been excellent every... More

We decided to go to Saba last minute on a Saturday evening as we were on our way to a show and under time pressure. We were seated immediately and served by a lovely waitress Nicolett who was super friendly, nice and helpful. As she knew we were in a hurry she updated us a we waited (after only a... More

Passed this restaurant many times over the years but never quite made it in. However, that was all rectified today as I went for a business lunch with colleagues. The food is Asian Fusion. The quick lunch 2-course menu, although not extensive is perfectly adequate as a lunch menu. There is something for everyone. Everyone enjoyed what was on offer... More

Having been to Saba quite a few times before and enjoyed the experience it made my last visit all the more disappointing. Four of us went there for dinner last night and came away deciding that it was probably the last time we will go there. There seems to have been a considerable increase in prices since we were last... More

Me and a colleague found this restaurant by accident when we went out for dinner. It was on a Thursday night. When we got inside we got a table immediately. The waitress served drinks when we were looking in the menu. She informed us about the different dishes and the spice-scale. The portions was of a nice size. All tastes... More

We were greeted warmly and seated a lovely waitress took our drinks and food order and explained... More

Saba is definitely one of my go-to places for a good meal with great food and a warm atmosphere. The menu boasts some incredible dishes- my favourites being their beef and lamb dishes as well as their noodles selection. They have a great early bird offer which is worth taking up on. Their desserts are amazing, especially the chocolate tart.... More

Dined here with colleagues for an early-bird dinner and a great time was had by all. This is an expansive and interesting menu, in a very comfortable, upscale environment. Service was extremely accommodating. Great for meat eaters and vegetarians, with a nice cocktails/beers/wine list.
