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

Arrived without a booking on an evening just before Christmas so quite a lot of "Christmas parties" were in full swing but staff went out of their way to find a table for us. Two courses were €27.95 - not on the cheap side but the food was definitely worth it - nicest beef I have tasted in a long... More

Hugo's is a really nice restaurant with quality food and service. The outside of the restaurant is warm and welcoming and upon entering you are greeted by the friendly staff and depending on the weather they will take your coats and direct you to your table which you will likely want to reserve if you are with a group. The... More

I hadn't been to Hugo's for a few years. To be honest I'd forgotten how pleasant it is for dinner. Food was so full of flavour and more importantly cooked perfectly.... scallops, duck and venison all beautifully done to perfection. We will be back very soon and will remind friends.. thank you for a most pleasant evening.

While at Leopardstown Races, an English couple seated next to us enthusiastically suggested Hugo's for dining. Upon returning from a tour of Powerscourt Gardens the next day, we went directly to Hugo's. Without a reservation we were allotted a 2 hour time slot as otherwise they were fully booked. Lucky us because the entire experience was perfect. Great wait staff,... More

We generally have a family meal out in Dublin city centre on Christmas Eve. The atmosphere and buzz in town are good (although restaurant staff can be weary having worked through a busy month of December. Consequently the experience can be a hit and miss). This year we went to Hugo's and we were not disappointed. Food, service and wine... More

Thanks for choosing Hugo's for Christmas Eve lunch. It is our busiest lunch of the year but, also, the most special. We hope you will return next year! (p.s. book early) More
