Prices at this restaurant are on be higher end, but they are completely worth it. The food at this restaurant was one of my favorites during my trip. Amazing mussels and the brown bread was the best I’ve had anywhere.

This is a lovely restaurant, moderate noise level, good food and service. It was nice to find such a reasonably priced restaurant in downtown Dublin.

Just had some lunch in the Sussex. The wings were outstanding and I would also highly recommend trying the braised lamb Shepards Pie. Service is the best I've received in Dublin. Love this place!

A great little place! It doesn’t look like much and the restaurant is kind of crammed in but the food is superb. The Chicken Supreme was amazing and the steak we ordered was cooked to perfection. The peanut butter cheesecake is also worth trying!! Good...More

I had the soup special which was OK but really could not taste the fennel. The sour cream was a nice touch giving it some flavor. The Brown bread was tasty and I could almost taste some lemon in the butter with a fantastic effect....More

I had very high hopes for the Sussex but at the end of the day the entire experience was quite average. The wait staff quite simply looked annoyed from the start. Easily the most unwelcoming restaurant experience in Dublin over the last 2 weeks. Moving...More
