Couldn’t recommend this place more. The food was fantastic. Starters and mains were en pointe for both me and my wife. The wine we had (Zolla - I wholeheartedly recommend it) was great value for the quality and all for such a reasonable overall bill of €82!!! I just can’t think of a better restaurant from a value:quality perspective in the area and couldn’t recommend it higher.

To add to the above, the ambiance was great. Really buzzy and the service was simply perfect. Extremely attentive staff but not in your face. Just a really nice balance. If you’re looking for a nice place to eat in the Stillorgan area look no further. This place exceeded my expectations.

Impromptu lunch, found this place while visiting friends. Had wings to start, as good as I’ve had anywhere, had gorgeous cod fish fingers to follow and the salad was dressed with a white balsamic I’ve never had before and would highly recommend. Staff were extremely nice, prompt but non intrusive. Even told where to purchase the balsamic

This restaurant isn’t overly big so it’s best to book in advance.

We did just that and were promptly seated on arrival, being offered a table indoors or out in the sun under their ample canopy. We chose outdoors with the weather being so nice.

The tables are nicely spaced, there are nice cushions and rugs for your lap if it were to get chilly late at night.

Also, considering you are on the pavement the glass on the outside of the seating area makes it feel quite private with traffic and passers by going past.

Our server was very helpful. We explained that we were slightly under pressure time wise and she said that would be no problem at all, they could get us served promptly, which they did!

We ordered a starter, 2 mains and one dessert from the Early bird/Neighborhood menu and it was all excellent. We couldn’t fault a thing.

We had the crispy squid, the chicken main (which has amazing duck fat roast potatoes, mozzarella, sun-dried tomatoes, broccoli, pancetta and a pistachio pesto) and creme brûlée.
All were full of flavor and very well executed.
We both commented that we had never ever had such a juicy chicken breast!

Top marks to the chef!

We’ll definitely return, next time I’d like to try their brunch as it seems to get fantastic reviews too!

Well done to all, keep up the good work and see you soon!

Had a fantastic meal in Riba this evening. It was great from the outset - exceptional waiter - so we knew it was going to be good. Mussels to start were great followed by Ragu. I was really impressed. Desserts and wine also exceptional. Professional and friendly service. I’d highly recommend this place. 9 out of 10 from me
