About Oliveto at Haddington House
Oliveto is an award winning restaurant and part of Haddington House hotel which is located overlooking the beautiful Dun Laoghaire bay (20 minutes from Dublin City by Dart or car).
Oliveto draws inspiration from regional Italy, from Southern Puglia all the way up to Piedmont, with plenty of Spanish and French influences as well. Quality sourcing combined with skilled cooking highlights the special virtues of our produce without the need for complexity. In addition, Oliveto has a separate wood fired pizza kitchen where we cook artisan pizza and slow roast meats/fish and vegetables.
Our dining room has panoramic views over Dun Laoghaire bay and seats up to 100 people at any one sitting. In addition, Oliveto offers private dining in a beautifully appointed space with sea views, called the Library Bar. Both spaces compliment a house Gin Bar in our lobby and a full Garden Bar with a dedicated BBQ kitchen for Spring/Summer days.
Reservations are advised but we do our utmost to accommodate walk-ins as best we can. We hope to see you soon.
Excellent food, and interesting vegetarian options.
Only problem, we were disappointed with the wine. We ordered a second bottle of red wine , which arrived freezing cold.
One of my favourite restaurants. Staff are so nice and the food is lovely. We definitely go there for the wonderful view. We have recently had a baby, so we have suddenly become aware of pram access. We had to carry the pram up lots of steps unfortunately although I know staff would have helped if they had spotted us coming. It wouldn't put us off returning but it's just to be aware of it.
Great food, great view, great setting, surprisingly reasonable prices. One quibble is that, as in all restaurants, the waiter comes up to you every few minutes to ask if everything is all right. It would be better if waiters just left customers alone a bit more. Otherwise it's a real hassle for the customer (and also makes it seem like the waiter is trying to kick the customer out, and not even doing so in an open and honest way). But like I say, this is true of virtually all restaurants. In every other way Oliveto is outstanding.
A little disappointed with this Sunday lunch as not quite the choices available as an earlier evening visit. Service could have been a bit quicker but as the restaurant was busy with a lot of young families that was understandable. Will return but perhaps not for Sunday lunch
Another great night at Oliveto, the food was really good (Ravioli) and great service from the lovely Andrea.
There was a large group of 36 of us in for a birthday celebration and everything went absolutely perfect. The staff were brilliant and so attentive we had a great afternoon. Would highly recommend for large gatherings there is a nice area to the side to accommodate large groups.
Bring back bruschetta !!
Unfortunately a few of my best selling starters on the menu are gone, and therefore the alternatives were not as i expected. I love mushrooms, and all the mushrooms dishes are gone, also the mushroom risotto which was outstanding is gone. the most amazing iconic starter "The Oliveto Board" is gone too. :( we therefore opted for simple pizza and chips. The waiter was also quite pushed to get us out by 2:30pm as they had another family to serve. Not sure I want to go there again. Real pity!
Ambience lovely. Service was excellent and staff v friendly. Food was delicious
Perfect lunch for our family occasion, as always.
Special of rib eye steak was recommended by our waiter and was well worth it, cooked to perfection and with a lovely jus.
Great food, excellent service- a little too noisy for my ears!
Lovely atmosphere, great pizza, friendly service and good value. What more can you ask for?

Lovely lunch, wonderful atmosphere, great service
Excellent food, friendly staff, beautiful views.
My family and I have been to Oliveto at least 6 times. We had a lovely meal and experience each time. We had family visiting from the States and were eager to treat them to a great meal on there last night. To say our meals were disappointing was an understatement. We started with the meat & cheese board which was fine except for the fact that the grilled vegetables were ice cold out of the refrigerator which was unpleasant to eat. I had the seafood risotto, it was very difficult to eat. There was absolutely no flavor and the risotto itself was beyond over cooked to the point to which it was mush. My husband and father-in-law had the venison ragu. Neither of them could finish it. It tasted of burnt red wine covered up with salt and the venison meat was so overcooked to an undesired texture. We were very disappointed and found ourselves apologizing to our guests for taking them to such a terrible meal. This was so disappointing since we have enjoyed coming to your restaurant in the past. With a large amount of absolutely consistently good Italian restaurants in Dublin, I’m not sure we will be returning.
Myself and my young niece had a lovely post Christmas lunch -staff couldn’t have been nicer and we had a lovely table by the window which my niece really liked as we had a great view of the pier and the bay We will be back for her birthday and thanks to all the staff -the food was delicious as well and great value for money !

We will definitely be making another booking again soon. THANK YOU x
