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.
My American family friends were coming into town. They really wanted an Irish pub grub experience. However, I knew that if we weren't careful, we'd be in tight quarters with no ability to hear each other speak. Delahunt was really the perfect fit. A classic, traditional feel, with an upscale twist.
The food was among the best I've had in Dublin. And the atmosphere lent itself well to great conversation, with zero noise issues.
The staff was really accommodating; a huge relief as we had a baby in tow. I don't think we ever went 5 minutes without staff making sure we had everything we needed.
This is clearly one of those places owned and/or run by people who love the business and love providing a great experience for others.
first time at this restaurant . Service was very attentive without being in your face. Starters and mains were fantastic and good choice of wines and other beverages. Loved the food, service and atmosphere. Will be back.
I have visited this restaurant twice in the last three weeks with different work colleagues and we love it! I will be going back for sure and the Bar upstairs for pre dinner drinks or indeed post dinner drinks is fantastic, excellent welcome and the service is superb and a great place to have a drink.
One of my best experiences in Dublin Dining for quite a while. Very small menu but wonderful food in interesting location.
Excellent, lovely food and service. One of Dublin’s best
Really great place with high quality food at reasonable price. A little noisey the night we were there.
Lovely food, great service but very noisy: so much so we had to raise our voices to make ourselves heard in a party of three. Between 7 and 9pm on Thursday 12 September.
The tasting menu was delicious, the staff was attentive and the decor was nostalgic and beautiful. We were sititng at the high table and it was still comfortable.
No English mustard available, cannot understand why, surely it is used in cooking? Waitress a little curt, otherwise enjoyed meal. Thanks
One of the best meals I have had in a long time. Excellent food and service. Will definitely come back, the next time I am in town.
The Sitting Room bar above the restaurant is well worth visiting even if you do not have a dinner reservation in the restaurant.
Beautiful place, amazing food and atmosphere. Perfect for a special dinner, also with friends, booking compulsory.
Wonderful as always. My favourite restaurant in Dublin.
We had such a wonderful time the first time, we decided to go back again. We reserved the front window table so we could see the street scene. Loved it. The pumpkin, goat cheese and papardelle entree is particularly delicious. We also enjoyed a glass of champagne in the upstairs lounge before dinner. That’s also a little hidden gem.
Had my first visit to Delahunt this week and if I had to describe it in one word, it would have to be a massive "WOW"!! Everything from start ( pre dinner drink upstairs in The Sitting Room) to finish was outstanding. The flavours, freshness, taste and presentation of all 3 courses were absolutely beautiful. Top class restaurant.....great staff but with a casual atmosphere.
Hats off to all at Delahunt!
Wine was very nice as was irish coffee however all the food supplied was poor. Starters of soup and duck. Soup passable and duck tasteless. Mains of lamb was really poor Veg selection scandalous and the absence of potatoes disappointing. A deconstructed black forest hugely uninteresting. All in all for the money spent probably the worst I have had for a considerable time. Similar to Craft Harolds Cross in concept but not half as good
Excellent meal / cocktails and service
Had our anniversary meal in Delahunt this week . Wednesday .. really nice restaurant. Good Feb and cooked to perfection . Service super and loved the complimentary sparkling ice water
Excellent food with very friendly staff. Went with my girlfriend and had a flight to catch a few hours later. All staff made sure we were served quickly despite not being the only table. Best meal we had during our 3 day visit and would strongly recommend to anyone visiting Dublin.
Food here is excellent and the service equally so. The menu has a choice between just 4 dishes. I had plenty of things I like to choose from, but on another occasion, I might have found that limiting. Portions are a little on the small side
Excellent dinner with mouthwatering food, tasted delicious, with interesting and inventive dishes. Would definitely recommend it, although a little pricey, worth it for a special occasion or simply a treat. Staff are great too!
Food was good as were portion sizes. Poor service
Yes I would recommend for the food and ambience, amazing.
I was for 7pm on opentable; at no point was I told we would have to vacate our table at 9pm, but we were presented the bill before we asked for it; and reminded more than once in that ‘there was a group waiting for the table so they really had to ask us to leave’.
This more or less ruined the evening for me; take our money and get out, was basically the attitude.
So although I would recommend the food, I would suggest you clarify how long you can sit and enjoy your drinks for after you eat.
Great food albeit limited menu choices
Traditional continental food. Simple ingredients, presented well.
Very friendly & efficient staff. Food delicious. Sat in window seat, enjoyed being there, but I didn't really get the ambiance if the restaurant.
Overall, a great experience, will be back.

We had a really lovely evening- the staff were very warm and friendly, with a good sense of humour! Food was delicious, portion sizes just right and the atmosphere in the restaurant is great. Bit of an old world feel! Keep up the great dining experience!
Nothing memorable about this food, bad value for money and serving German Beer ??wont be back
A great evening, we had cocktails at the beginning. everything was yum. Tks.
Great food in a relaxed atmosphere at a reasonable price, will go again.
Absolutely superb dining experience. Excellent food including the best mash potato I have ever eaten!
Drinks service a little slow but small criticism for what was overall an excellent meal
Amazing food in an unpretentious environment! 4 stars all round
The food was very plain, had to ask for extra jus, salt & pepper. Was sat close to the door with friends, otherwise a pretty sweet spot.
Very restrictive group menu once you’re 8 or more. We had a family birthday and only had a choice of three starters (cured duck, pea & ham soup, tomatoes & ricotta) & three mains (hake, pork chop or mushrooms).
For some reason it’s €5 extra per head when you’re 8 or more - normally €45 for 3 courses, but jumps to €50 when you’re a group 🤷♂️ So essentially less choice, more expensive.
Wines were exceptional, sides to share also exceptional (Aubergine & goats cheese, fried polenta 👌)
Service was fine, not the friendliest bunch and unaccommodating when I asked if I could order a main from the regular menu. Simply declined - just “sorry, chef says no”
Although none of us were that impressed by the pork chop, the Hake & Mushroom main were incredible, as was the pea & ham soup.
Food and service excellent. Menu quite small so it has to be good and it was.
Great atmosphere as well.
Outstanding food and very good value. Would recommend to anyone.
The food was fine but I would not say it was anything special. Very long wait between courses. And very noisy . Staff very pleasant
Beautiful restaurant with a short perfectly executed menu. There was a special main course which was delicious. This is a great restaurant if you’re not in a rush.
We were lucky that our table didn’t have to be vacated after 2 hours. We also enjoyed a number of seasonal cocktails which were amazing. The staff are fantastic here!
This experience certainly can be equated with the emperors new clothes story. People are raving about Delahunt. I hsve no doubt this place wzs great when it first opened and when it was first recommended to me. Perhaps I should have tried it then .They seem to be confidently resting on their laurels that their booming business will continue. I believe they are ripping people off with tiny portions and over priced wine. If they want to stay in the market they will have to do alot better thsn this. I for one will not be returning
