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.
Delahunt was ultimately disappointing. The food didn't live to what I expected. The ambience was nice but all three of my courses were disappointing.
I had the best meal of my life at delahunt on Valentine’s Day. From starter to desert, everything was a touch of class! I’ve tried every restaurant in Dublin and nowhere has come close to the standard of delahunt. I was skeptical before going because of the limited/small menu but I couldn’t have been happier. I had the beef cheek to start, then shared the coute de boeuf and chocolate fondant. The white was lovely and very reasonable price. The service from both the host and server was superb - very friendly, attentive, lively and had great recommendations. Delahunt will be top of my list for all celebration dinners going forward. Would also add that the living room above it is gorgeous for a drink before hand
We were in the snug table at the window and it was fantastic. Felt like we were in our own private dining experience. Delicious food, friendly staff and great people watching. Definitely going back.
Fab food. Great service. Outstanding quality food served with a smile. One of my favourites in Dublin.
Lovely meal and love the snug. Have been before and will be back but the cep icecream is gross, I regretted ordering it but I was curious. Artichoke cake was nice though.
The restaurant was freezing cold, I did not remove my jacket and I counted 6 other women wearing their jackets this completely negatively impacted the whole experience. Service was attentive and good at beginning but as restaurant got busier the service went downhill and was rushed.
I ordered Venison which was so rare and bloody I could not eat it and gave it to my husband.
The rainbow carrots were a nice starter but not anything amazing.
It is my 4th time dining here and I'm so disappointed I won't return.
The dessert menu was not enticing ( artichoke cake? really?) so I left very disappointed.
Warm and welcoming place with respectful and polite staff. The food is nothing short of incredible and for the price exceeds expectations for both quality and taste. Honestly a must if you’re in the area or just looking for a delicious meal
Tasty food and friendly staff, could have presented that food and what it was a bit more. Lovely setting even if it was a bit noisy.
The food was delicious but service was poor. There was great urgency taking our order, we’d only finished our main meal and we were asked for our desert order. There was no time to digest our food. The waitress didn’t appear happy when we said we needed a few mins to take a breather. It felt like our table was needed again at 9.30! It was such a shame it was so rushed and all 4 of us felt the same.
Thanks from my wife and I for a great evening.
Food and service were excellent and good value (for Dublin City). I would change the seating arrangement to allow for more two table settings.
Excellent meal. Great cocktails to start. Delicious vegetarian option.
Fantastic food & great service. Will be back. Was recommended by a friend & my fellow diners were equally impressed.
Everything was amazing and the staff above and beyond to ensure we had a fantastic evening.
Amazing food. Great service. Perfect ambience! All round perfect birthday celebration meal
I’m torn how to review.
Food was lovely.
Our complaint was about our server. She was not very engaging or smiley.
All other staff that served food from the kitchen were lovely, attentive and engaging.
Have eaten previously a number of times this was my worst experience to date. I felt the food was decent but no wow factor. Pork main course lacked seasoning and could have been slightly pinker too. Sticky toffee pudding was probably the highlight.
Lunch at Delahunt's was fabulous. Food was perfect. I love a short meme at lunchtime so that worked perfectly I had the cod and it was perfectly seasoned, my guest and I are still asking how did that chef manage to season the fish the entire way through? My other guest had the pork and he too enjoyed it thoroughly. A perfect place for a quick but beautifully cooked lunch. Don't think I've had such good food in a restaurant at lunchtime for a very long time. Thank you Team Delahunt.
Food was great, staff were friendly and helpful. Very relaxed atmosphere.
I thought the food was really good and very well presented, but the portion size of the main meat was too small in my opinion, I had the venison
Excellent service. Fab food presented tastefully. Good background music. We arrived early and finished our meal as the restaurant became busier. Worth a visit!
remember the building from the eighties as Jack Carville's off licence I was blown away by the high level of service from entry to exit, food was sublime ambiance was just knockout as the old building sucked you in between the mortar and the bricks of a time long past , good luck to all at Dlahunt.
Great ambiance, delicious food and great service. Will definitely make another visit.
Amazing as usual. Great seasonal produce cooked to perfection.
Lobe this place
My wife is gluten free. She ordered the beef and when it arrived there were a number of items missing. The reason given was that they contained gluten. She would not have ordered it if she had been told in advance. Also the beef was inedible. No acknowledgement from the staff of the problem when told.
We loved the service and the surrounds and while the food was good, it didn't blow us away. Each dish had great elements but each had issues - over seasoning, low temps, needless ingredients
Overall a very enjoyable dining experience however it was let down by non attentive / non personable service. Could have been that it’s silly season (Christmas) but still, with quite an expensive set menu service should have been better.
Great evening! Bar upstairs was excellent, high table suited us well and the food was superb. Good wine list with interesting options and excellent Irish coffees to round out with. Bravo!!
The service was excellent and the food was very good, but limited in choice. We were very happy to have the discreet dining area at the back of a the restaurant. Overall a very good experience.
Food was beautiful and service was very nice. Atmosphere was great. Service was quite rushed, putting down our next course as they were taking our plates from last but that’s to be expected at this time of year so didn’t mind. Was pleasantly surprised when the bill came. Overall extremely happy.
A delicious delight of flavours in every dish. The service was good and the restaurant had a great ambience of casual, yet attentive!
Had a most enjoyable evening here recently. Food was yum, service excellent, professional & friendly. I can totally recommend dining here & will definitely be back. Thank you so much. Sharon
The hot mains seemed to have been under a heat lamp for a while and were a bit dry.
Delicious food and a lively atmosphere.
Fabulous food. Very attentive staff. Great night out with friends
Love this restaurant. By its design you cant get smothered by very large groups which is nice. Food choice particularly at Christmas time is really good. Presentation is always top with lovely staff to help you enjoy your evening. A good wine list without being too long and confusing. Always a great buzz here. I particularly like the high top table/bar for two or four. Go try it yourself. You wont regret it.
Excellent food, service and atmosphere in a really lovely setting. First time dining there having heard great reviews - I’ll definitely be back.
Recommended by a Friend from Dublin for our reunion dinner. The food was artistry on the plate and a joy to the palate. Fresh local ingredients, surprising flavour combinations, terrific ambience, and service with a smile. All in all terrific choice for our reunion dinner and will come again!
Lovely food-friendly service-fantastic atmosphere! Highly recommended!
I love this place.....always great service, great fun and great food! Recently brought a group of girls for my birthday and they are all converted to Delahunt!
On the last occasion which was lunch my only concern is that is was a little cold.....however I was seated beside the radiator so warmed up quickly!
I'll be back for a drink and a cheese board at the counter over Christmas!
