Excellent streaks and service. We weren't told about the specials, which is a pity however we all went for steaks anyway. Not cheap but it is in Dalkey.

Had made an online reseveration but when we got there it was not on the system. David was very helpful and managed to get us a table even though they were very busy. The food was excellent. The staff were friendly and sociable. We meet some friendly local people. Good night all round.

Food and service are great. Love the linen tablecloths and napkins, makes that little bit of difference. Steak frites always reliably good. We'll be back!

Greeted by lovely friendly staff at the door who will always try squeeze you in even for a drink! Small cosy restaurant with tonnes of atmosphere every night of the week. Tasty cocktails. Efficient service. The prawns to start are divine. Creamy buttery mash, tasty spinach, punchy pepper sauce. Great night as always!

DeVille's is located on the main street in the old heritage town of Dalkey.
Born out of a love of food and the ceremony of dining out, its joint owners brother and sister Kim and David O'Driscoll serve moderately priced, traditional bistro fare seven nights a week with brunch/lunch on Fridays and the weekend.
Serving predominantly French wines from a carefully selected wine list, draft beers and an extensive range of spirits & house cocktails there is something for everybody at DeVille's.
