    March 2016, our lunch visit

    After visiting the 3rd National Classic Car Show at the RDS Simmonscourt in March 2016 we stopped at the InterContinental Hotel Dublin Lobby Lounge for our lunch.

    We were lucky and the lounge wasn't too full, so we could have a table at the large floor to ceiling windows of the conservatory overlooking the garden and fountain.

    The staff was friendly and overall efficient.

    We ordered a large bottle of still water, two hot chocolates, one Luscious Bliss cocktail, one Chicken and Mango Salad Wrap with salad and one salmon fillet with green beans, tzaziki and Quinoa, the 70% dark molten chocolate dessert and a trio of crème brulees.

    While the drinks and main courses arrived pretty quickly and were delicious, the desserts took their time.

    We weren't in a rush, so it didn't matter. The wait was well worth it. The presentation was beautiful. My dessert looked like a piece of art. The cake was shaped like a Guglhupf from Austria and there were edible flowers on both plates. It was very tasty indeed.

    The raspberry, chocolate and vanilla crème brulees were intense in flavor.

    We received a few apologies for the delay and didn't have to pay for the desserts, which was a nice touch, but not expected.

    The bill was 58.25 Euro (ca. 63.85 USD).

    Having visited now the Seasons Restaurant for brunch and the Lobby Lounge for lunch we will return to both and at some stage stay at the InterContinental.

    Would we recommend this venue to a friend? YES!
    Would we want to visit again this venue in our future? YES!
