Booked for Sunday evening. We arrived early, before our table was ready and were asked to wait at the bar. When our table was ready we were brought to our table. Our drinks were brought for us. Service was good. The timing between getting the menu, our order been taken and our food arriving was leisurely but not too slow.... More

We enjoyed lunch here. The restaurant is in a nice location in Dun Laoghaire and also close to public car parks. The dining room is spacious, with good space between tables, and it's bright. There is also a nice bar located off the dining room. The waitresses were very friendly, flexible and good with young children. The choice on the... More

Regretfully another restaurant that fails to realise that two females are as valuable to their business as a male and female. I took my daughter there for lunch today as it was her birthday and she simply adores Hartley's peppered squid - a charming young couple together with their baby daughter were seated at the next table to us just...

Called in on the off chance of a table last week, we could only get a seat perched near the bar! Did not disappoint, the chicken wing 1st course was amazing, well worth the visit alone. Was going to share starters with my partner... No way! Well worth the visit, but please book, as was very busy, and there is... More

Great atmosphere, staff were very attentive and the food was gorgeous. The building was interesting although it was a bit chilly every time the door was opened. We were sitting with our backs to the door.

We enjoyed a wonderful, flavourful dinner and excellent service at Harley's, as we were reconnecting with old friends. Even with our dinner reservation at 9pm, the place was packed and loud place, which added to vitality of the restaurant. Everyone seemed to be having a fantastic time. I absolutely loved the Chilli and Black Sesame Squid dish - very tender... More

Went for a late lunch on a typical irish changeable summers afternoon. Staff excellent and so was the food. Limited menu available on the terrace which I'm sure they have they're logistical reasons for but that's disappointing you miss the specials. Seafood is always good.

This gracious landmark building offers one of Dublin's most elegant restaurant interiors with a wonderful terrace right on the seafront with harbour, pier & seaviews. But what makes this a winner is the great value food offerings. Have posh fish & chips, or a seafood speciality or enjoy one of Dublin's best burgers & best chips. You can still enjoy... More
