When we visit Dublin this is our eatery of choice. Was there during a very busy lunchtime yesterday and got seated very quickly. The food was as usual, to die for. The experience is well worth any wait, I hope it never changes. Thanks you for another great experience Vanilla Pod.

We had lunch in the Vanilla Pod and enjoyed the experience. we have lunched in BB's and Barry&Browne before but this is the best of the 3. They have nice breads and soups. It is efficient with friendly staff. It is child and buggy friendly. The seating is not crammed together. It is expensive but the food is excellent.
