The Food Awards Ireland took place earlier this week: an award that recognises and rewards the very best in Irish food and restaurants. Entrants were picked by general public and the awards raised funds for the Make a Wish charity.

Competition was tough across a number of categories, but the people have spoken and revealed Dublin's Restaurant of the Year 2017.

*Drumroll plzzzzzzzz*...

The deserved winner of Restaurant of the Year Dublin went to Token, a restaurant, bar, retro-arcade, pinball parlour and event space all rolled into one in a huge 6,000 square foot warehouse in Smithfield.

They do everything from 90s movie screenings to spicy chicken wing food challenges, and their American street-food inspired menu is seriously good.

Plus, you can play some cool arcade games after you've eaten

Other notable Dublin winners are:

Gastro Pub of the Year Dublin: Searson's of Baggot Street

Cafe/Bistro of the Year Dublin: Brother Hubbard

Fine Dining Restaurant of the Year: Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud 

Best Vegetarian Establishment: Umi Falafel 

Best Mexican Establishment: Acapulco Mexican Restaurant

Best World Cuisine: Kimchi Hophouse 

Best Mediterranean Establishment: Salamanca Tapas Bar & Restaurant

Best Oriental Establishment: Zakura Izakaya
