“Special occasion”
Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

We dined here on Thursday last for a special occasion. From entering we were greeted by very professional and friendly staff. The menu is limited and the staff answered any questions we had.
The food was exquisite. I had the scallops and the thorn hill duck. Amazing.
I would highly recommend locks brasserie.

“Lovely and unique.”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

Locks Brasserie is situated on the southern side of Dublin, nestled in a private neighbourhood and adjacent to a lovely, tree-lined canal. It's location is entirely unique and has a local but elegant feel to it. Most visitors to Dublin will need to take a taxi to reach this restaurant but the ride is brief and therefore economical. The restaurant is also happy to call you a cab at your departure as well. The restaurant itself has an open, bright, and welcoming ambiance with lovely views of the canal. It is modern but retains a cozy atmosphere and you feel as though you have happened upon a local secret. Service is wonderful: attentive, polite, timely. The menu holds sufficient diversity without being overwhelming and portions are the perfect balance between not too filling but not too sparse. I dined with a party of four, each of us ordering a different plate, and none were disappointed with the quality, presentation, or flavour. The wine selection was varied in flavour and price and the staff was well-versed in making recommendations. There is even a small bar area for sitting for a drink before dinner or waiting for a cab afterwards. Overall, a beautiful evening at this brasserie and certainly special enough to return to on our next visit to Dublin.

“Great place for that special meal”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

Friendly atmosphere, great service - and lovely food. Everyone in our group of 4 was delighted with their mea from the early bird menul. A good choice for a celebratory get-together and well-located by the canal. The seats can be rather close together, and the woman at the next table was drenched in perfume, which I found distracting from the meal - wish there was something restaurants could do about this.

“A perfect evening”
Reviewed 16 June 2014 via mobile

Dined here last night and it was a very special evening. Everything was perfect, from the setting of the table to the excellent service and the food, of course! The tasting menu was an absolute treat with the matching selection of wine. Beautiful decor of plates. The restaurant has a great atmosphere with its wonderful location, kind of laid-back simplicity and attention to the smallest details. Highly recommended!

“Perfect Birthday Dinner”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

Dined here last Friday evening, having often driven by it and wondered what it was like!

I was not disappointed. It was perfect. I honestly couldn't fault anything. Myself and my partner went with the early bird menu, which was two courses for €25 and was very good value. We ordered wine, sides, a dessert and coffee at an extra cost.

The atmosphere in the restaurant was really relaxed and welcoming with a mix of families, groups of friends and couples dining that evening. The service is attentive but not overly so. I would highly recommend it, especially for a group of people to celebrate an occasion.

We will certainly be back. Thank you for a lovely evening!
