it is becoming a new routine, a meetup and lunch in Hugo's before an Irish Rugby game. Starter highlights included the pressed Ham Hock and crab with Fennel and carrot salad. The butternut squash soup needed more flavouring. Main courses of tempura of haddock and the beef burger were perfect rugby grub. The chips were the best tasted in a... More

3 of us had dinner a Hugo's after two days of meetings. Our host described it as a sure bet and she was right. A good wine selection. Season appropriate menu. My scallops were great, the duck breast perfect. My colleagues enjoyed their venison. We shared a Chocolate tart and trifle. A very good meal. Recommended.

We went here, on a friend's recommendation, for a significant family occasion. From the moment of our first contact on the telephone, the staff were interested, personable and attentive. From weeks before they remembered the name of our guest who was celebrating and offered a personalised dessert. The atmosphere and decor is warm and full of character. The food is... More

A group of 7 decided to chance our luck and try and get a table last minute on a Saturday night. And luck was on our side, there had been a last minute cancellation and they could fit us all. He food was mouth watering, we all ordered different dishes and they were all presented in a fabulous mannot. But... More

I ate here on 1 December, 2016. I hate writing bad reviews, as I know they can do damage, but sometimes they are warranted, and unfortunately, my visit to Hugo's was one which was not good. Service was poor. Slow delivery of food, and difficult to catch the waiter's eye. Sirloin steak was small. Vegetables arrived when we had eaten... More

I would highly recommend this restaurant. We had not booked and were very lucky to get seats immediately but I imagine booking is a must. The food is beautiful and the recommendations from the staff were spot on. They know the dishes inside out and were really able to recommend based on our personal tastes. Excellent wine recommendations too.

Exceptional food, cosy atmosphere and the most welcoming and friendly staff! Came here for my graduation dinner with my family and never felt so well looked after in a restaurant! I made my reservation ages ago and the staff remembered and organised a little surprise for me! All in all a wonderful and memorable evening!

Last minute reservation on the same day we crossed over the "big pond" so we weren't looking for fussy or pretentious. Simple menu -- we stayed with the pre-theatre prix-fixe but the à la carte offering was also tempting. I started with a crab salad served with a carrot and fennel salad. Crab was fresh tasting, salad a nice complement.... More
