This was my first time here. Really good menu and a great selection of wines. The food was excellent and some really reasonably priced wines that were excellent. Hidden away in a really nice part of south Dublin. Would recommend highly

This is a place where locals flock. It is owned by locals and services locals extremely well. The food is basic and simple. Families, couples, groups dibs here regularly. It's a go to place for locals. Owner is a friendly man who circulates.

Came here with friends for an early supper. Good choice of food, well cooked and presented. The tempura prawns were delicious, as was a beautifully cooked fillet steak. Lovely friendly service.

Description
The Gables Restaurant & Tapas Bar, situated in the heart of Foxrock, is renowned for excellent food and outstanding wines with particular value between 5-7pm where wine prices start at only €10 per bottle. The Wine List is specially selected by restaurant owners Jim and John McCabe of McCabes Wines in Blackrock who have over 25 years experience in the trade. If beer is more your thing, there's Peroni, Guinness, Murphys and Heineken on draught and a great selection of speciality bottled beers. Open 7 days a week for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and with free WiFi, The Gables is a popular all-day meeting place. There's live music on Thursdays and Friday Jazz (6.30-8.30pm) with Tapas every evening after 5pm. Brunch on Saturdays and Sundays is simply buzzing with life and a big hit with families. Dinner transforms the atmosphere to one of casual elegance featuring fresh fish, lamb, pork, chicken, aged beef and venison. All are cooked to perfection with a Mediterranean twist to create a feast for the eyes and nourishment for the soul by head chef Luis Casero.
