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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I came into Le chocolat de fred in a fair rush to be at an appointment close enough to the cafe/restaurant. Cyllia (not sure if I'm spelling her name right so very sorry if I am) was lovely and said I could pop back in...anytime of the day to collect it. Needless to say it was delicious and perfectly made, I got the first option of chocolate and bananas (there's also options of savoury crepes which look great too) the crepe Wasnt too rich so wasn't to heavy but hit the right spot. Lovely and efficient staff, wasn't waiting long at all even during their busy lunch hour, will definitely be returning!!More

My Gf and i stopped for a short break in this fabulous and unexpected small place. Really nice decor which creates a real « Parisian athmosphere ». It’s not only a place for chocolate lovers, they have a wide range of all kinds of sweet...delicacies… the Crepe full of amazing dark melted chocolate and fruits Scrumptious hot chocolate with peanut butter, is just exceptional. Great service, warm and friendly. I am not surprised it’s often so busy. This amazing French owner is passionate about quality. Thanks for this sweet moment in Le Chocolat de Fred. I would definitely recommend it.More

Waited 20 mins in a queue on a Sunday. Finally got to order. Ordered a hot chocolate and crepe. Waited another 20 mins and I finally had to ask where the order was. “Oh sorry we forgot” was the answer. Get your house in order...is my advice.More

I went here with my family. In particular I was impressed by the classy and beautifully laid-out interior. There is a real continental vibe in this creperie. Even more than the cool surroundings, though, was the top quality crepe and most incredible creamy chocolate. My...kids had the waffles with strawberries and whipped cream and still rave about it today. This is a 'must-visit' when in Dun Laoghaire. PaulMore

My daughter and I stopped in as the menu caught our eye. She ordered a waffle and I had a savory crepe. Both were excellent! But what I enjoyed most was sitting out at a little table on the sidewalk, people watching and enjoying the...delicious cappuccino. Yum! Will definitely be back. We decided next time we would try the ice cream.More
