Fine dining in Dublin with seafood focused menus

Menus are sourced locally and fresh produce is delivered daily, allowing for a great variation, created daily by the Head Chef Sean Smith, a Donegal man with a passion for seafood. Staples include West Cork Scallops, Galway Bay Mussels, Dublin Bay Prawns, Native Irish Lobster served as a half or whole, Donegal Cod Steak or a Fillet of Halibut or decide to build your own seafood platter.

Our Oysters are farmed on the West and East coasts of Ireland.  Native Galway Oyster is a staple on our menu, along with Flaggy Shore and Achill Oysters from Co. Clare and Carlingford Oysters from Co. Louth served with Whiskey flavoured honey or Mignonette. Soak up the atmosphere of a busy Dublin city centre restaurant, enjoy a dozen at the Oysters Bar located at the rear of the restaurant.
