We had a great dinner at Doyles. The mussels were especially delicious. Staff were super friendly and helpful.

This restaurant is well worth a visit. The fish was fresh, perfect & interestingly cooked, (fish cake to start, & linguini). Dessert menu has something for everyone. Had a most pleasant evening, relaxed & very enjoyable. Definitely will be going back.

The meal choice was good even for a non shellfish eater and the atmosphere was lively. We were served reasonably quickly even though the restaurant was full to bursting.

This is by far one of the top restaurants in the foodie capital. The crab claws are sensational and the scallop mains are just ridiculous. It comes with a ball of breaded black pudding and pork belly. The creativity of the chef Sean is extremely...More

I made them the night before...,I'd gone in without a reservation and was told I'd have to wait an hour or more so decided to come back the next night with reservations. Well worth the wait!!!
