Dublin is home to an array of exquisite cuisine. These are just a handful of our favourite restaurants.

  • The Greenhouse
  • Clanbrassil House
  • Michael’s
  • Bunsen
  • Dublin Pizza Company
  • The Legal Eagle
  • Fish Shop 
  • The Market Kitchen
  • The Fumbally 
  • Meet Me In The Morning

The Greenhouse 

The Greenhouse, is a 2 Michelin star restaurant that specialises in elevated Irish cuisine. Each season brings a new menu, as only the best Irish produce is used to create an incredible dining experience. If you are going to The Greenhouse for dinner, Expect to pay around €80 for a 3 course meal. If you head to The Greenhouse for lunch you can enjoy a two course meal for €45.

Clanbrassil House

There are only 25 seats at Clanbrassil House, which aids in the homely feel that it offers. Here, you will find ingredient-driven food, cooked over a charcoal fire. Clanbrassil House has fast become a firm favourite amongst Dubliners, with their hash brown chips and pickled onion mayo being said to be unmissable. If you are an indecisive eater you may want to visit later in the evening when the menu is reduced, but for a full menu it’s best to make a booking for earlier in the evening.

 Michael’s

Michael’s has a cult-like following amongst Dubliners. Each day owner and head chef, Gaz, hand-picks the best seafood from the local waters, and creates the perfect seafood menu. To accompany the amazing array of seafood, is an exceptional wine list. To get the best of Gaz’s picks, it’s best to go for the surf and turf, which is complemented perfectly with a herby garlic butter. 

Bunsen

If you are craving a burger whilst residing in Dublin, the only place to feel truly satisfied is Bunsen. Your Bunsen meal will see a Black Aberdeen Angus patty laying on a freshly baked burger bun, topped with melted American-style cheese, and fresh deli-style pickles and lettuce. To top off the burger is Bunsen’s special “punch” sauce. Accompanying are freshly made, hand cut, chips. The price at Bunsen is low, but the flavour and satisfaction is incredibly high.

Dublin Pizza Company 

If you are looking for a slice of Italy in Dublin, then look no further than the Dublin Pizza Company. The owners of the Dublin Pizza Company flew to Naples to learn the craft of pizza making, however, all of their ingredients are sourced from their back garden. You can grab one of their outstanding pizzas from their hole-in-the-wall store, or head to The Well, a co-working space by day and event space by night.

The Legal Eagle 

Located close to the Four Courts, The Legal Eagle is Dublin’s best gastropub. Inside you will find the familiar brick and birch furniture of a regular pub, but will be served classic Irish food in a new and innovative way. If you happen to be in Dublin on a Sunday, don’t miss out on the opportunity to try The Legal Eagle Sunday dinner- slabs of roast beef, accompanied by seasonal vegetables, cauliflower cheese, and topped with gravy.

Fish Shop 

Husband and wife team Peter Hogan and Jumoke Akintola have created the perfect place to enjoy fish and chips at Fish Shop. Their concise menu includes classic fish and chips and an assortment of small plates, including poached oysters and squid sliders. Accompanying their refined menu is a perfectly paired wine list. Fish Shop is well known in the Dublin area for being one of the best places to enjoy seafood in Ireland.

The Market Kitchen 

Located in Temple Bar’s weekly Saturday market, The Market Kitchen is only open on Saturday’s from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm. Each week, Jenny and Patrick McNally produce organic vegetables from their farm. Their daughter, Sara, and business partner, Liadain Kaminski, pair their vegetables with the produce from the surrounding market stalls. The result, is fresh, organic, and homely food that tastes incredible. 

The Fumbally 

The Fumbally began as a falafel shop, furnished with whatever furniture the owners could find in charity shops. Over the years, it has grown into an organic food venture, which includes house ferments, such as cabbage and ginger. Guests still sit at the original mismatched tables, but they have more option on what they can eat. The Fumbally is the perfect place for some casual, organic, food that is good for your body and mind. 

Meet Me In The Morning  

Meet Me In The Morning may look like a small coffee shop serving little more than a few pastries, but their food is a true delight for the taste buds. Their menu is small, however, each dish is made with fresh, organic, vegetables, and a sprinkling of meat. Everything is made fresh that day, and you are guaranteed to leave feeling happy and full.

  • Candlenut
  • 328 Katong Laska 
  • Sushi Kimura 
  • Burnt Ends 
  • Keng Eng Kee Seafood
  • Warong Nasi Pariaman 
  • Corner House
  • Samy’s Curry

Candlenut

Candlenut was the first Peranakan restaurant to earn a Michelin star. At Candlenut, Singaporean chef Malcolm Lee taps into his heritage to deliver his modern interpretation of traditional Chinese cuisine. Many of the recipes you can sample have been passed down through generations and you can taste the heritage of each dish in every bite. Make sure to try the bakwan kepiting.

328 Katong Laksa

Laksa is a popular spicy noodle soup, and there is nowhere better to get it than at Katong Laksa. If you are looking for a fancy dining experience you won’t find it here, but if you are looking for delicious, authentic, Singaporean food, you have come to the right place. The menu at 328 Katong Laksa is limited, so making your choice is fast and easy- perfect for enjoying your noodles as quickly as possible. 

Sushi Kimura 

Chef and owner of Sushi Kimura, Tomoo Kimura, has over 20 years of sushi-crafting experience. He offers an incredible Japanese sushi experience, that includes artisan ingredients that change with the seasons. Since Sushi Kimura gained its Michelin star it has become increasingly popular, so it’s best to book a table in advance.

Burnt Ends

If you are a fan of BBQ then you have to try Burnt Ends, Singapore’s best BBQ joint. Surrounded by a burnt wood and iron exterior, you immediately become immersed in the BBQ experience as you sit facing a line of chefs intensely BBQing chunks of meat. Everyday the menu changes, with only a few staple dishes remaining all season, such as the pulled-pork Sanger.

Keng Eng Kee Seafood

Keng Eng Kee Seafood offers cooked-to-order wok-fried dishes. You will find everything here, from moonlight hor fun to Singapore’s best claypot pork liver.  Located on Bukit Merah Lane, it is constantly buzzing with people trying to secure a seat so make sure that you book well in advance.

Warong Nasi Pariaman 

Having served nasi padang since 1948, Warong Nasi Pariaman is the longest-running nasi padang joint in Singapore. At this Halal-certified restaurant, you can find traditional dishes such as ayam bakar, barbecued chicken served in thick coconut gravy, and sambal goreng, a type of spicy stir fry. It is important to note that because this restaurant is Halal there is no alcohol served on the premises.

 Corner House 

Corner House resides in the historic home of a 20th century British Botanist, which is very fitting with the botanical theme of the restaurant. Singaporean chef, Jason Tan, showcases his gastro-botanical menu in his residence, which is built from the finest ingredients from across the world. The highlight of his eclectic menu is the Cevennes Onion, which is built using several different methods of cooking onions.

Samy’s Curry 

Samy’s Curry was opened in the 1950’s, and continues to be run by the same family today. At Samy’s Curry, you will find an array of classic, home-style, curry’s, including chicken masala and fish cutlets. This is far from a fine-dining experience as servers ladle curry and rice onto sheets of banana leaves. It is recommended that you enjoy your curry with your hands. Sinks are provided at the back of the restaurant so that you can adequately clean yourself up at the end.

J.B. Ah Meng

If you want a true taste of Singapore, head to J.B. Ah Meng. There is nothing fancy about this restaurant, however, it is where Singapore chefs come for their post-work meal, so you know it’s good. You will find J.B. Ah Meng in the heart of Singapore’s red-light district, in a simply furnished, two-story building. For the best tze char in Singapore, head to J.B. Ah Meng and enjoy the relaxing setting.

Spring Court 

Spring Court is Singapore’s oldest family-owned restaurants. It sells traditional dishes that have been served for generations, including deep-fried boneless chicken and prawn paste, and crab meat rolls stuffed with chicken liver and salted egg. Originally, Spring Court was a purely Cantonese restaurant, but, as Singapore began to diversify, so did Spring Court. This restaurant offers a wonderful reflection on Singaporean food and how it has developed over the years, whilst holding onto its traditional roots.
