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.

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 Sitting Room bar above the restaurant is well worth visiting even if you do not have a dinner reservation in the restaurant.

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 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!

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.

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.

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
