Small but nice restaurante, with well care service and a very fair menu. We had the two courses, at a good price, with meat and nice soup. The cheese table at the end worth the euros on it

We had a great evening at Hugo's, and I am surprised it is so low on the list of Dublin's best restaurants. I have been to several of those higher, and they are not as good! We had the table by the window, a slight struggle for me to get in, due to my slightly portly figure, but otherwise great... More

Visiting Dublin to see younger son for his birthday, the concierge made several suggestions for dinner and Hugo's was the first one we found. Nice cosy place, traditional French decor. Lovely friendly staff, we felt welcome from the moment we walked in. Starters were very good - my dressed crab with Apple was a great combination of flavours, the cauliflower... More

Lovely atmosphere warmly lit--a very wide wine list with excellent choices-- we chose from the Spanish selections For starters my friend had the soup of the day a delicious carrot and cumin soup I had the beets and cheese salad -- the chef was out of the burrata and substituted it with goat cheese apologetically frankly I preferred this !...

Staying in the area for the weekend we did not know where to dine on the Saturday night and had exhausted ourselves looking online at menus/reviews. Heading out in the night we came across Hugos and once all were satisfied that the menu would cater for all we were relieved that a table was available for us. We even managed... More

From start to finish the meal, ambiance and service was excellent. I was guided to the steak on the menu by our excellent waiter from America whom also recommended the wine to complement the dish. All in all a great experience and will definitely be booking again soon. Thanks Hugos

We ate here on New Years day as the normal restaurant we would eat at was closed. This proved to be advantageous as Hugo's was better. Lovely atmosphere and staff were very good. Would recommend

The décor is very attractive in Hugo's. The food is absolutely delicious, having eaten here a number of times and sampling a wide variety of dishes I have yet to find something I did not like. The restaurant and toilets are always spotless. (Toilets are downstairs). The staff, led by Shane, are the jewel in this particular crown. They are... More

Walked past this place on the way back from a meeting whilst visiting Dublin and it looked really comfortable but a bit special. Saw on the website they do a very reasonable pre-theatre menu and decided to try it. It didn't disappoint - lovely decor and atmosphere in there - friendly staff yet still professional. A decent variety of options... More
