We were a party of eight and our table wasn't ready for some time after our arrival (despite a booking). The service was also a little haphazard at times - but the staff are certainly very friendly. Starter of calamari was OK, but the seafood risotto main was really excellent. The place was packed too - which makes for a good atmosphere. Although I'd be happy to eat here again, overall I'm not sure I'd be rushing back either.

There are three options for this marvellous restaurant - early bird set menu, fab but a little limited especially if you have children with you. The evening menu in the main restaurant which is great, really top class and a very large selection but a little expensive and the Bistro down stairs - this is where we ate this evening though we have tried both other options I would strongly recommend the Bistro - great friendly service, large varied menu and a lovely large dinning room which has a wonderful atmosphere. Spicy chicken wings to start, very large portion served which would easily do two people, sea food risotto best I have ever eaten and the family had the burgers. Even if I was trying to fault something I could not. Highly recommend it.

Been a while since we've been here but have heard fantastic things about their Roast Beef on Sunday's.Have to say that it was fantastic, beautifully cooked Roast Sirloin with the best Yorkshires we've ever had and real horseradish sauce!! A huge plate of Quality and for only €17, a steal!! Will be back soon for more, well done to all at the Monk.

The place is very nice, great decoration and atmosphere and the staff is very friendly. The food is nice but not amazing. The fish and chips is good but a bit greasy. There is a bit of inconsistency on the size of their plates, but if you are hungry definitely go for the chicken wings as starter, they're nice!

Having moved into the area recently was looking forward to trying this. It was great! One of my favorite places to eat is very similar. The atmosphere is wonderful. It's not going to win any Michelin stars for the food but that's why I like it. It is unpretentious and solid. Bistro food done well. Extensive wine menu and beautifully lit dining room. The staff were faultless! Such a relief as I had high expectations for this place. They were surpassed.

I come here all the time with my family and love it! My go to is the peppered steak at a very reasonable price, always flawless, although the great variety of specials make it a tough decision to make! Im a beer drinker not a wino so the bottles of Spaten are a great call! Staff are always really friendly and looks after us superbly! I always look forward to eating here. 5 Stars! :)

The staff, atmosphere & wine are exceptional here. The early bird is unfortunately a bit disappointing as there is very little selection. I would definietly rate it very highly still and would recommend it.

A real little gem in the middle of Greystones. The homemade burgers are some of the best I have ever had. The only thing I could ever complain about is the restaurant does not open every day and the days that it does open, is late.

Enjoyed a great family meal in the restaurant's new(ish) extension. I had the Dublin Bay prawns, and the dry aged Sirloin steak. The highlight was the chocolate sundae which, even though I was stuffed, was a treat. We all felt comfortable in the new room, service was friendly, like usual, and the food was excellent. The Hungry Monk is one of North Wicklow / South Dublin's best restaurants.

Went her mid-week with some friends and really like it. I had the chicken wings to start and risotto for mains and my friends had the chicken curry for the mains. Wine and service were really good. Also loved the Gregorian chant music in the bathrooms! I cant wait for my next visit.

Went here for my birthday and was very impressed. Every mouthful of food was delicious, with generous helpings and a leisurely atmosphere to enjoy the meal. Would recommend this restaurant to friends and family and will be going back again soon!
