Inside there’s only a handful of seats. Even though the restaurant was fully booked, it was still super chill and I (with my bad ears) could actually sit back in my chair while my “hot date” and I conversed.
The menu is what stood out for me most. It was unusual and intriguing serving up a tapas-like selection of starters and tasters. These are broken up into snacks, cold warm and pasta dishes.
To start, we were heavily influenced by the couple sitting across from us who had ordered the most amazing looking plate. We soon found out it was foie gras with potato waffles. It was one of the most unusual starters I’ve had in quite some time but it was truly delicious.
They have an extensive wine list with wines I had never even heard of. As it was Valentine’s Day I opted for a red called “Love and Grapes” and it was the perfect pairing to wash down the decadent starter.
All in all, this really was a superb meal, better than I could have ever expected. The venue is pretty simple but the food gives it great character and something worth talking about.
As someone who dines out more times a week than she’d like to publicly admit, this place brought something new and unique that really made it stand out from the rest. Since my visit I’ve been recommending it non- stop.
Get in there now before it’s booked out for weeks to come – I have no doubt it will be.

The most amazing dinner at @variety_jones last night 🍷. . Such a cool spot with some of the best food I've had in a long time. . I'm not the easiest person to bring for food 🍴I make you wait until I've snapped a picture of your dish, I dissect every ingredient on the plate and always lean over for a taste of yours - for research of course! I'm.v lucky that @john.sharpson has the patience of the gods and let's me do my thing 🙏🏼. . PS. Yes, my shirt is from the men's section in @primark.ire 🙈. . #Dublinfoodie #dublinblogger #lovindublin #igersdaily #dublin
