“Good food in a friendly atmosphere”

Jules by the Lake Cafe
Ranked #1 of 5 Restaurants in Rathmines
Restaurant details
Reviewed 5 June 2017

Being in a suburban shopping strip, this place is popular with locals and worth a visit if you are in the area. We had a family dinner gathering of 10 including teenage kids and everyone was happy with the experience.

The food is pretty standard style with a range of favorites prepared well and in large portions (a local norm) at moderate prices. The pasta carbonara was well balanced and the Thai green curry was fresh and spicy. There were a few impressive iced chocolate which caused some excitement too.

It is BYO only and I expect that BYO beer would be ok. There is a bottle shop on the corner nearby.

The owners are often in attendance (as with local restaurants) and are more than willing to discuss special needs and address any problems. The kids could not finish so we were offered takeaway containers for the left overs (which were eaten for breakfast the following day).

The lake views are somewhat "filtered", but you certainly can see the water and there is always street parking available.

Overall, a very comfortable and safe option for a decent meal out with family or friends.
