Lovely warm decor, tonnes of atmosphere. Light, modern Italian options. The seafood linguine and risotto were both amazing. Great service even with the place jammed. Great for a drink outside in the summer!!

Hosting one of the best views in Dun Laoghaire, I dropped in to the old Haddington House for my afternoon tea recently as the sun was out and the sea was clear. Unfortunately, the service was not as I had previously experienced. Pointed out by another elderly women sitting close by, there was one or two young people trying to... More

This restaurant is in the Haddington Hotel, (renamed from the Kingston I believe). The restaurant has a good reputation locally. (Hence used to meet family for dinner). Limited menu - not a problem as many are far too wide and I assumed the limitation meant extra good. It was okay but did not live up to the reputation in my... More

I had a starter platter with lots of lovely meats and cheeses on a huge board which fortunately I was sharing. I went for a rather dull choice of main course, a pizza which was... More

Well had a meal and posted a review in 2016 which was upsetting due to the service not been up to the 100%. But new year new hope - Service was prompt, personal right level of interaction. The starter was amazing (The ravioli) and I asked for a calzoni which I was straight away asked which one. Currently I am... More

I went there on a Sunday with some friends and we loved it. The staff is very helpful and prompt. I had Fritto Misto, which is very yummy and we also had pizzas. I can honestly say the pizza is one of the best that I ate in Dublin. Definitely recommend the restaurant though if you go in the weekend... More

The front of the hotel belies what is within. It looks, as it should do, like an oldish hotel but within is a modern restaurant/bistro with good food and service.
