With an emphasis on local excellence and seasonality, Sika offers the best of Irish contemporary cooking against a spectacular backdrop of Wicklow's hills and mountains. From the rich bounty of our seas and our fields, from the skilled hands of artisan producers and craft suppliers, Ireland's fresh food credentials are world renowned. Such superb raw materials inspire the best of our chefs. So at Sika you'll find well-loved classic dishes deliciously prepared and executed with a distinctively modern twist.

The space is as appetising as the menu. Situated on the third floor of the Hotel, Sika's dramatic floor-to-ceiling glass windows take full advantage of the breath-taking views of the Sugar Loaf Mountain.

There is no better place to soak up the sunshine and enjoy the views of the Sugar Loaf Mountain as the weather gets warmer, as Sika Terrace is open for all day dining during the summer months.

Please note that the restaurant is an adult-only area from 8:00pm nightly.

    After reading a lot of negative reviews we were unsure what to expect inSika restaurant and very nearly cancelled. It was absolutely perfect. Food surgery and the service was very mush up to standard with a very knowledgeable wine waiter who had only been there a few months. A 1st class meal in beautiful surroundings. Well done.

    I have never experienced such disgracefully bad service. We had to ask for our starter dishes to be removed as the waiter was trying to push the main course in front of us. We asked 3 times for everything- drinks menu, cutlery, table to be cleared away. When I asked for main course cutlery only 2 settings were brought to the table despite there being 7 adults at the table. Half of our order didn’t arrive until most of the food had been eaten. After I approached the manager about this our server came to the table with a very bad attitude & questioned “is there a problem here”. When we finally did have our table cleared away the server did so beside an 18month old baby sitting in a high chair & nearly dropped cups on her head 3 times. I asked him to leave it & come back but he said “it’s fine”. Food was lovely & the setting is fabulous but they need to seriously invest in proper waiting staff without bad attitudes. We all had our food at different stages due to the poor service & getting a drink was a complete joke! When the manager finally did get involved we got our dessert as it should have been - all at the same time, without half missing & without a bad attitude!!!

    Great food, incredibly poor service. Let me caveat this review, I love this hotel and have stayed many many times and had our wedding reception there in 2011. However this is the worst I have experienced. You expect 5 star service in a 5 star hotel. We were seated at 7.45. We finally gave our order at 8.30 after numerous requests. People who arrived after us already had their starter. Staff walking past us totally oblivious. Staff cleaning tables around us while our menus lay on the table. Completely ignored. Mains arrived no spoons for sides or steak knives. Small issues but 5 start service! We had to ask for desert menus and again ask to give our order. One water refill the whole dinner. The restaurant was less than half full so no excuse there. Overall very disappointed with the service. We had dinner in the Shelbourne Hotel and Cashel Palace hotel recently and it was flawless, proper 5 star. I hope the Sika really ups it’s game. Very disappointed.

    My wife and I had dinner on a one night stay in the hotel. Food was very good and staff were very attentive despite the busy evening. They were also more than willing to let us relax between our courses. A very enjoyable meal and evening. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

    Honestly extremely dissatisfied and disappointed. With our meal and stay I was recommended by a close friend but won’t be in a rush to send anyone down there (I travelled 4 hours with my partner) for our anniversary. We ordered our meal and waited 50 minutes. Until I finally pulled someone over and mentioned we had been waiting..they then checked with the kitchen and the servers had never even put the meal through. We then had to wait another 20 minutes to get our starters. Mains can after this which We then sat for 20 minutes until someone offered us a dessert menu and finally took our plates away We waited for 20 minutes and never even got our dessert menus. We at this stage decided to just pay the bill and leave And our server didn’t even apologize Bare in mind we paid for 3 courses and only received 2. Not what we expected from a 5* resort

    Very poor service. Had better food in a Gastro Bar! Would not recommend & would definitely not go again. Not worth the money! No Manager on duty & no one was in charge to deal with or prevent issues. Waited an hour & a half between starters & mains. Not good enough for such an establishment! If your thinking of going..don't, I never leave bad reviews but have on this occasion. Staff need serious training in basic service & food was of a very poor standard.

    . The little touches and attention to detail were missing. Just a small example-other tables are offered bread but all of the staff forgot to bring bread to our table. Food was served before wine. We had to prompt for water and wine.

    This restaurant does not meet the criteria for a 5 Star rating. I had halibut which was from a frozen preformed cake. Texture and flavor were lacking. My wife had duck, which was so tough we had to ask for a replacement. The second portion was somewhat better but also not great flavor. The restaurant claims fresh mostly local food but I’m not sure this is true. We came to this restaurant because they assured me ahead of time they could meet my wife’s dietary restrictions, which include gluten and dairy allergies. They were in fact NOT prepared for this and she had to negotiate with the wait staff to find options that would work. They did not prepare anything in advance for her based on the written information I had given them and spoken about via telephone. The wait staff are quite good and helpful, if a bit disorganized. They did have excellent desert options for both of us. We also had breakfast here and the same evaluation applies: not a 5 star place. I would like to say that the Sugarloaf Lounge IS a wonderful place, and High Tea is an experience not to be missed. They were completely ready for the gluten and dairy allergy and they had made pastries in advance which were very special indeed.

    This wasn’t our first time dining at Sika but unfortunately the food wasn’t very good this time. We were really looking forward to it but were quite disappointed with the overall experience. The starters we’re both very bland and unseasoned and the mains were fine. The sides were the best part of the meal

    2 courses were not served as described on the menu, there's a big difference between smoked and fresh salmon & the resulting change meant the starter was very bland. Foie gras served with the duck main, had that been listed we would not have also ordered as a starter. Mains fish (halibut) was extremely dry & slow to come out (very hot plate, perhaps sitting on the pass too long). Excellent service throughout, very professional.

    The service was very good. The menu is overpriced for the quality and quantity. The beef was very tough and was over cooked, chicken was very bland. The deserts were excellent. The quality of food needs improvement and more attention to flavour and cooking time.

    Bit disappointing. Food was OK, but the service was terrible - think I had to ask three times for my glass of wine... my dinner was nearly over. We had the wings to start, small but tasty, I had the prawn and chorizo pasta - not very tasty, my Husband had the burger and seemed happy enough. He had the chocolate dessert which was delicious and I had the cheese board, highlight of the meal. The waiters were fine... but very inexperienced. When my Husband was asked if he wanted dessert... he started speaking and said 'the chocolate...' and was cut off by a 'yeah yeah'.... I know its hard to get staff in these times but if you are paying 5 star prices, you expect 5 star service. In no hurry to get back.

    My wife and I decided to give it a try, having not been for many years as the hotel is so unwelcoming to locals. Food was good, particularly smoked salmon. But my wife’s fish was overcooked. A bit overpriced. Wine list has very little in €30-€40 range Couldn’t get a drink before dinner in Magills bar as it is being used as a burger joint. This “fake Irish” pub has always been completely out of place in the hotel. The pleasant waitress in the restaurant was so pleased with my tip, they mustn’t be getting any tips from residents. The decor is nice but it feels like a hotel restaurant … which I suppose is what it is.

    Very good experience. Service, wine and food was great in a lovely setting. Also very reasonably priced for a 5 star hotel. The only thing I could fault was the cooking of the steaks. I ordered medium and my partner ordered rare when in reality mine was cooked well done and hers was cooked medium but not the end of the world as the meat was top quality. Overall, I would certainly recommend.

    The service was mostly good, but not perfect (the staff was nice, but some details were lacking: the wine arrived late, for example). The food was good, as was the presentation, but it didn't justify the price. It felt like a hotel trying to do nice food, rather than a place that specialised in fine dining and was passionate about food. The room had low ceilings and felt like it was in a a basement. It was hard to get a reasonable view out the window, because the windows were small and widely spaced.

    Beautiful restaurant with very attentive staff. The main and dessert were absolutely fantastic, the starters were not to our taste. We found it hard to choose a starter and if it wasn’t a set 3 course menu we wouldn’t have ordered one. Very expensive meal but worth it for a treat. We had a lovely evening.

    We dined in Sikka Resturant in Powerscourt Hotel last evening for dinner. We were very troubled by flies. We also had an afternoon drink in Sikka Resturant and had the same problem with flies. When we were eating our food, flies were landing on our drinks glasses. I was going to drink from my wine glass when I found one in the wine!! The manager on duty was helpful and replaced it. I found the dinner menu quite limited in so far as there was a lot of choices that I didn’t like. My partner and I are plain eaters who don’t like fish…. We chose the steak. My partner liked his but I wasn’t impressed with mine. I asked for medium rare and it was cooked to medium with no blood visible. I also found the cut of meat a bit tough. The waitressing staff were friendly and attentive. The breakfast buffet was excellent. Though my partner found the fried eggs were rubbery. We also found it difficult to get the attention of waiting staff to order our breakfast pot of tea…. All in all, I would have expected more from a 5 star hotel Resturant.

    Very good menu and well prepared. €70 was good value. We ate 2 nights 9/10 May. My wife has an awkward intolerance to onion and garlic. This was dealt with very well. The sauces are usually the problem and we expect the chef in this quality of hotel to be able to adapt something rather than serve dry. On the first night we had to push for this but the mustard cream sauce was fine with the duck. On the second night adaptations were automatically done without prompting which was excellent.
