With the amount of new businesses and restaurants popping up across the city, you could be forgiven for thinking that our economy is finally beginning to get going again.

We thought we'd profile twelve amazing restaurants and cafés that have opened in the past few month. From Mexican party caverns to super fresh salads, permanent pop-ups to Scandin-Asian bars, these twelve restaurants are extremely welcome additions to the Dublin restaurant scene.

Bread & Bones

This restaurant in Millenium Walkway has amazing industrial decor, great tunes, craft beers and some of the best banh-mi you'll taste this side of the world.

This spot in the National Bank building on Camden Street has a gorgeous garden out back, perfect for the coming summer months.

East Side Tavern

While it's a relative newcomer, this bar has established itself as a classic pub that serves simple yet brilliant food on the corner of Stephen's Green.

Amazing new spot on Baggot Street for healthy lunches where you can build your own salads, and they have plenty of gluten free treats as well.



Traditional Irish cooking, done amazingly well on Camden Street.



Mexican food, dangerously drinkable margaritas and a place that turns into a banging nightclub once the kitchen closes.


Fair play to the restaurateurs and entrepreneurs behind all these spots.

We can't wait to see what other new establishments pop up over the coming months, g'wan Dublin!
