Layla’s is an atmospheric space with exposed timber joisted ceilings, oak floorboards and 1950s inspired tan leather booths along one window wall – with windows that open up wide for an airy feel when the weather permits. The timber ceiling is full of character, bringing warmth and character to the interior, acting as the perfect contrast to the large expanse of glass in the room. The centrepiece of the room is a beautiful 3 sided marble and leather clad bar nestled beside the open kitchen and pizza oven. Take in the panoramic views over the chimney pots of Ranelagh, with the Dublin Mountains to one side and the sea to the other.
Tuck into a menu created by Head Chef Paul Devoy – an inventive menu filled with tasty fare.
For midweek breakfast or a lazy weekend brunch, feast on the likes of organic Eggs Benedict or our Inch House Black Pudding, Shaved Pickled Pear Salad, Crozier Blue Cheese, Mustard & Apple Dressing. For lunch, sample our Sesame Tofu, Flaked BBQ Salmon, Calamari and Clam Linguine, gorgeous pizzas fresh from our pizza oven – and many more options.
Dinner is served! Choose from beautiful dishes like Shrimp & Crab Rigatoni Pasta, Ibérico Pork Cheeks, Sea Bream Fillet or our Roast Hazelnut with Blackened Cauliflower, Artichoke, Taglierini, Lemon Zest, Parmesan and Black Pepper. The dessert list is just as impressive – featuring dishes like a decadent Chocolate Delice, white chocolate terrine or Dulce de Leche Crème Brûlée.
Layla’s wine list has been created by The Devlin’s sommelier, Anke Hartmann.
‘The wine list has been designed to really inspire our guests to be adventurous. There are different styles of wine – like the refreshing Yuzu Sake, which can be paired with fusion dishes. Or enjoy a Madeira as a digestif or with your cheese. Our list is concise, with wines on tap, classics, and wines for the more curious.’
