A Dublin restaurant has been named as the best seafood restaurant in Europe.

Dublin’s SOLE Seafood & Grill on South William Street won this prestigious award at the World Luxury Restaurant Awards which took place in St Petersburg, Russia, on Saturday night.

The seafood restaurant, which opened in 2o18, is the only Irish restaurant to be recognised for excellence at the awards.

Established in 2015, the World Luxury Restaurant Awards are considered the most prestigious in the luxury restaurant industry, offering international recognition to winners. There were 850 entries to the 2019 awards and the restaurants are shortlisted on a voting basis with guests, travellers and industry players casting over 100,000 votes over a four week period to select the winners. 

Speaking about the win, Executive Head Chef at SOLE Richie Wilson said;

“The team at SOLE are absolutely blown away. Since opening in 2018, the whole team have worked so hard to raise the standard of seafood in Dublin and offer patrons a top quality dining experience with Irish produce on the top of our agenda.  To win such a prestigious award is such a testament to the whole teams passion and dedication.”

I headed to SOLE a while back and I have to say, it was up there as one of the tastiest seafood meals I've had in Dublin to date.

Fair play lads!
