Type: Vegetarian Restaurant
Description: Dublin's swishest vegetarian restaurant, a modern styled cafe style place with a surprisingly stagnant menu, staying much the same from year to year. A reasonable choice for vegans at dinner time, less so at lunchtime or at Sunday brunch. It seems you either love it or hate it!

Great, central location with swift, courteous and professional staff. Prices are about right / competitive for central Dublin. Food was ok but not great. The scrambled Tofu breakfast was large and filling but the Tofu itself was soggy and the only flavour I could taste was Tumeric. This kind of slop is unacceptable in my opinion, especially when it is such an easy dish to make tasty. It's nice that there is a place serving vegan food but that's no excuse for crappy food. The menu is large and varied so I'll definitely be back to try it again with fingers crossed that it'll be better.

Horribly disappointing. I was being taken to dinner by a broke student so we had to eat from the set menu, which was meant to be cheap. There only seemed to be stir frys and curries. I wanted something solid, so I went for the bean casserole. It turned out to be some beans and vegetables in a sauce. I managed to eat about four forkfuls. I ordered a juice, expecting it to be great. It should have been mixed waaay more. I could still pick out each fruit in it. On the plus side, all the desserts I tried were really nice.

Am always on the lookout for good veggie restaurants cos you don't have to restrict what you can choose on the menu. Thought would try Juice, as had been there circa 2006, was ok. I had couscous and Moroccan veggies...very bland but edible. I went in June last, had the mushroom Wellington. It was horrible! It HAD to have been bought in and frozen, it was bland, mushrooms were...well...mushy. The gravy was like a crappy stockcube, the pastry was soggy, it was SO disappointing because that dish could be a signature with a bit of imagination. It was joined with a couple of dejected spears of brocolli and a hape o' wathery mash. All in all my verdict was gross. What stung even more was the price - over 15quid for this debacle. The only good thing I'd say is the attention to veggie and vegan wines, which apparently no other restaurant has ever heard about.

There was soup with bread + butter on the list as vegan marked. I wanted to be sure what I can order - so I asked wheather my choosed meal (with "V" in brackets) is really vegan. The waitress was annoyd about this and gave me a rude answer. The meal was too fat. I can't recommend that restaurant.

I have only sampled their brunch, but have to say this was the most disappointing vegan food i have had in Dublin and that includes meals at restaurant that didn't purport to be vegan friendly. Totally uninspired scrambled tofu with horridly bland mushrooms. No sense at all of what to do with tofu and over-priced for twice the quality they deliver. Ambience without substance or taste. Save your money...

I was also visiting Dublin from the states (but staying in Sligo for most of my trips to Ireland) and my boyfriend and I arrived at the wrong time for extensive vegan options, which was disappointing, but we had a delicious soup (the only vegan one on the menu, no doubt) it had chunks of uncooked tofu in it, which the picky Irish boyfriend didn't care for. But I liked it. I also had a soy mocha that was KILLER, haha. I'd like to go again at a better time of day and dig into the rest of the vegan menu.

Good food. Great juices. Set menus very good value. Staff have started playing loud jarring music of late and so I have stopped going there. Shame.

The fact that you can sit down is great, the food portions are a little large and the menu never seems to change! Love the tofutti ice-cream but they need more dessert options!

I just visited Dublin from the States and really enjoyed Juice. Obviously outside of Dublin I had a hard time finding vegan food, but this place was excellent. My travelling companion is on Atkins and even she could find food. I really enjoyed the tofu scramble and soy mocha! I wish I could have eaten here every night in Ireland and beyond. More vegan dessert options would have been nice.

Situated close to Down To Earth in the heart of Dublins vegetarian community Juice is Dublins only proper Vegetarian Restaurant. Table service will provide you with whatever you should require. There is a set menu which rarely changes. Either you know you're in for a treat or, if you're a regular, you hope for a change. Plenty of vegan options for starters and main courses. Low in vegan deserts and never have vegan spread. The jucies however are superb. It's a lovely place for a nice meal out.
