Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

“You look fabulous!” Well, that’s one way to welcome your customers; though I have to say that – for out first night dining out in Dublin – we had made the sartorial effort. We are not spring chickens and, on arrival, the clientele seemed way...younger; however, we were escorted upstairs (away from the ground-floor buzz) to a more intimate space. Since we had only two free evenings in Dublin, I had done my internet research. So it was no surprise that the menu offered dishes that would live up to my expectations. For a starter, my partner chose the cured trout which came with slivers of cucumber, smoked roe and buttermilk lovage – just the sort of refreshing dish to set the palate to wanting more. I opted for the lamb-shoulder tart: a crisp tartlet filled with succulent pulled lamb, accompanied by peas, pesto and a fried quail egg. The whole ensemble was lifted by the hidden sharpness of celeriac slivers upon which the tartlet sat. Fate would have it, for foodies such as we, that there was some mix-up with our starters order. To our surprise, the third starter choice appeared at our table: goat’s cheese panna cotta, marinated tomatoes, pickled walnut – and a Bloody Mary sorbet! [Spoiler alert: Richmond does not have a spirits licence, so you have to have your pre-dinner G&T elsewhere; but somehow they manage the vodka for the sorbet.] Since it was too late to return the salad to the kitchen, we enjoyed it on the house. It was the last serving time by the time we reached our mains and the catch of the day, halibut, was sold out. So the chef substituted monkfish – who’s going to complain? My partner’s fish came simply served with a pesto sauce and baby roast potatoes. After a meaty starter, I opted for the vegetarian choice; always a challenge for the creative chef. I wasn’t to be disappointed: butternut squash and comté cheese pithivier, roast cauliflower, king oyster mushroom, capers and raisins, and crispy kale. As you can imagine, great depth of flavour with interesting textures. Alas, at a certain age, the stomach shrinks if the appetite doesn’t. So we passed on the choice of two deserts or the cheese with fig clusters, but I’m sure that they would have been equally creative. Richmond, whose chef hails from Brighton, trained in London, and has returned to his partner’s home town, is obviously well-known to Dubliners; but for visitors to find such a gem a mere 8-minutes walk from our hotel was a both a holiday bonus and highlight.More

A very enjoyable diner with my son. Creativity and attention in the meals. You shall try the gougères and the duck proposed as snacks. The pork was really tasty and the dessert above expectation. Service very friendly

I went to Richmond for the first time in February 2020 and then spent the entire pandemic thinking about how wonderful my dinner was there. I went back with my partner and my parents in June 2022 and was worried that the food and atmosphere...would not live up to the 2 years of thinking about it, but boy was I wrong. The service was wonderful. The wine was delicious. The food was incredible. I just can not say enough good things about this restaurant. I will be back though fingers crossed this time it won't be 2 years in-between visits.More

We visited this restaurant which is in a less fashionable part of Dublin. We had a drink first in O'Connell's bar across the road. The food was good and reflected a creative chef. Service was very good.

I regret not taking photos as our meal was the best we had on our 10 day trip to Ireland. We did the 32euro early bird special. The ingredients were super fresh. Not salty or oily. Beautiful presentation and enough to satisfy one's appetite. The...staff was attentive. A bit out of the way from the touristy sections of Dublin, but worth the trip. And it's in a lovely neighborhood of its own to explore.More

I wanted one "foodie" meal while I was in Dublin, and I am so glad I chose Richmond! The food was delicious, and beautifully presented. The servers were all charming and friendly. I did the early dinner at 5:30 and it was nice because I...had flown overnight to Dublin and was fading fast. I very heartily recommend this place!More
