At Delahunt restaurant, our aim is to provide the best seasonal, local produce in a relaxed and welcoming setting. In keeping with the buildings Victorian origins, our menus are influenced by traditional and often overlooked cookery techniques. Home curing and smoking, slow cooked braises, pickles, preserves, and traditional desserts are some of our specialties. Championing small local producers is an essential part of our ethos.

In less than a year at Delahunt, the team was awarded a Michelin Bib Gourmand 2016, and again for 2017/2018/2019. Our passion is to produce every element of our dishes in house ranging from our Guinness bread to our signature home smoked salmon. Our menu has focus, offering four starters, four mains, and four desserts. This allows team to produce high-quality food, fresh on site. We also use only seasonal, local spirits in the bar, featuring a local producer for vodka, gin, and whiskey.

excellent food and lovely atmosphere - every detail is excellent and enjoyed the wildflowers on the tables, really enjoyed it and definitely one to come back to!! My only critique is to modify the solitary table at the front window, it has a less pleasant view behind the counter. We asked to move to another table and luckily it was not a problem, thank you again!

This is definitely one of the top restaurants in Dublin. It is a limited menu which may not suit all but the food is presented gorgeously.....you eat with your eyes....and tastes fantastic. All 3 of us loved each course that we had and we will definitely return.

We went mad and ordered an expensive bottle of wine for the occasion, which was delicious. Starters and mains were out-standing from the short but balanced menu - but the desserts were very disappointing. The base of the tart was burnt and we should have sent it back to the kitchen so the disappointment was partly our fault. The Pannacotta lacked any wobble!

The room is great and the service is both efficient and just attentive enough. Free sparkling and still water! prices are good.

Would not recommend to a friend as Menu is quite limited and the restaurant is very noisy. Waiters let cutlery fall to the floor at their station and the noise it made would lift you out of your seat. We liked it ourselves and food was lovely.. and we had a lovely evening that didn’t break the bank.

Waiting staff very well trained and efficient.

Unfortunately we arrived on refuse collection evening, so stepped out of a taxi to bin bags on the footpath... I know is can’t be avoided but still it is unsightly...

It was a wonderful dining experience. My only fault was that our cocktails arrived with our entree leaving no time to order a bottle of wine. It would have been nice to enjoy the cocktail at the start before the food arrived.

On the positive the service is excellent, staff are very pleasant. Very limited menu, crowded dining room. Two of our group enjoyed the fish main but otherwise the food was average, we all finished but I would not return to this restaurant when there is much better restaurants all around Dublin.,

We really enjoyed our evening at Delahunt, the staff were friendly, the food was very good and the decor was great. I was particularly impressed with the precise coffee making, weighing the grinds, goes to show the quality of service and dedication to the product they are delivering.

Duck not a composed dish, a collection of ingredients. Fish was heavily salted - drank a pitcher of water as accompaniment. When waitstaff informed, no concrete action taken.

My experience this time was not as good as my previous visits. My server was a bit scatty to say the least. As we were there for the early serving and the restaurant was not full I had to remind our waiter about our drinks. The food itself was very tasty if a little cold. Overall not my best visit and as I had highly recommended it to my friend for whom it was a first visit, I was disappointed.

Our meal was great - we had fish for our main course which was delicious. Not too much so we still had room for desserts. Ambience was great. More casual dining than a formal dining experience which I prefer. I would definitely go back again!
