About Locks 1 Windsor Terrace
Winners of "Best Emerging Irish Cuisine" on the RAI Awards 2016.
Locks brings the best in modern Irish food to a superb venue overlooking the canal in Portobello. Offering exciting menu, wine and cocktail list in a warm laid back atmosphere.
We were left waiting for 1/2 an hour without being offered any refreshments at all. The service after was erratic. One persons dish was forgotten about. Things were being taken away wile we were still using them. The wine arrived after the starters. Overall a very poor experience.
We really enjoyed our Christmas lunch in Locks, relaxing afternoon, staff were very friendly and we never felt rushed or under pressure despite the fact the restaurant was busy. We weren't sure about the menu options which were slightly unusual but everything we ate was delicious. Thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon.
Very nice food , drinks and staff very efficient , will be there again .
Fabulous, as always!
Lovely lunch and excellent staff and food. Will be back!
The service and the food were absolutely fantastic-m
I was recommended your restaurant from a close friend. I wasn't disappointed, food was amazing, lovely cosy atmosphere. Food was exceptional, I was entertaining clients whom were blown away by the food. Service was excellent - greeted with a complimentary glass of champagne and was really looked after on the night. I would recommend and will be back. Thank you and well done.
We had a christening lunch at Locks for 14 adults and 3 small children recently, and I cannot recommend this restaurant enough. Andressa, was so professional, helpful and warm and everything just ran so smoothly on the day. She went through all details with us in advance, and was very thorough and patient. On the day, the restaurant was so cosy and we had a beautiful room upstairs to ourselves, which was ideal with 3 small children. The food was absolutely exquisite as was the wine... and everyone truly enjoyed it. I have eaten here several times now, and never had a bad experience. What I love most about this place, is that while the food is that which you expect in a Michelin star restaurant, the ambience and staff are so relaxed and friendly, there is no air of stuffiness whatsoever. Its a gem of a neighbourhood restaurant. The wait staff were so lovely and particularly patient with the kids running around. I love this place, and its somewhere we will return to time and time again. Thanks to you all for a truly lovely day.
Relaxed atmosphere, great staff and tasty good looking food.
We were celebrating a special birthday and had a wonderful time, walking away beyond satisfied and with special memories. Thank You, Fiona
I brought a cousin Elfrieda and her mum to lunch yesterday in Locks as a birthday treat. As always the food and service were sublime. In all my visits the quality of the food is ALWAYS excellent. I have eaten in restaurants all around the world with my job and I must say Locks is my favourite restaurant in terms of food and service. Locks you are doing a stellar job - please keep up the great work!!!!
Fine Dining at affordable prices, lovely food dishes, great wine list & a great buzz in the restaurant. Staff very attentive & welcoming.Great setting overlooking the Canal , with the regular vision of the swans gliding by.
Thank you we had a client diner and it was such a success great food service and attention to detail simply wonderful
Lovely evening. The choice of mains was too limited though: one fish, one meat, one vegetarian and one sharing (beef). I went with two friends. We’re all meat/fish eaters: I had fish the night before, vegetarian didn’t seem interesting, and to share a cote de boeuf we’d rather go to a steakhouse. We all ended up ordering the meat dish - venision. Very well done but it’d have been interesting to try a bigger variety.
We celebrated our wedding with a family meal at Locks and it was fantastic. The staff were lovely, professional and friendly. Super easy booking process. The meal was delicious, with great feedback from everyone, including our niblings! (nieces and nephews) No hesitation in recommending Locks, thanks to all the team for making our day extra special. It's a gem of a restaurant!
Fabulous as always
Excellent food, excellent service and excellent ambiance. Highly recommended for all occasions.
Absolutely delicious, incredible food....
I really appreciated the patience with the kids and the time we needed to order as translating the menu to my family. We all enjoyed the delicious food and and the simple and yet warm atmosphere. Service was flawless. Being at Locks certainly contributed to make our family dinner a very nice time.
Food was of a high standard and the Sunday lunch offer is good value. Unfortunately, the wine list has only a few wines of reasonable value but we did find one to suit our tastes and budget. Service was good up to a point but there was quite a delay between our starter and main course, the reason for which was not explained to us. Overall, Locks is a good restaurant and I really like its location in a quiet residential area by the canal.
Brilliant service, will be back!
Wonderful experience - set lunch excellent value for money....lovely staff and bright comfortable setting.
