Not knowing Dublin well and staying in the U2 hotel we ventured into the Cellar, following a week in Lyon. Great choice indeed! Staff was unfailingly kind and knowledgeable and food was first rate. We will be back!

The food is delicious and staff very attentive. It is a place you can take children but not young ones. The dining room is spacious and you can enjoy quiet conversation. Best Irish Coffee in Ireland!

Interesting setting, though they are apparently going to move soon. Food was mixed. Appetizers were excellent. Haddock was too salty. Attentive service.

We enjoyed a terrific meal, great service and a very pleasant setting for our dinner at the Cellar Restaurant. The waiter was very helpful, suggested an excellent wine to accompany our meal and watched over us very carefully throughout the evening without being obtrusive. We...More
