Had a very tasty lunch, and spent the afternoon having business meetings in the beer garden, which is more of a courtyard...but it had sun and was quite. We also ended up having dinner there and the food was excellent as was the service.

Difficult to get seated & service. Menu looked great but entrees weren't original or tasty. Food is overpriced & interior finishes don't offer good acoustics. Decent assortment of drinks, but took forever too get them served. It's a shame, we were all on vacation &...More

Good menu selection - especially fish. Great atmosphere and service. And at weekends there is usually a music gig - tribute bands - upstairs. Worth a visit.

Been here on Saturday night, great atmosphere with a nice choice Of tap beers and drinks. Disappointing food: way too expensive and quality below the average: I had a cod with chips, both were greasy and poorly cooked.

To be fair, the phone manner of the people who I spoke with was terrific. I called twice. I paid for a meal and a show. The barmen handled my requests very well, friendly and correctly. The service staff worked hard but were not trained...More

WINNER OF DUBLIN'S BEST GASTRO PUB 2013 - IRISH RESTAURANT AWARDSThe Purty Kitchen re-opened it's doors under new ownership in October of 2012. The Purty Kitchen is south Dublin’s newest gastropub serving a wide variety of fresh fish and pub classics with flair. Every dish has been created to show off seasonal food at it’s best and we have used Irish produce wherever possible.We have tried to put a signature twist on all of our food. Take our burger for example. They are made in house with dry aged Irish beef from Kettyle meats. The cheese comes from 5 mile town creamery and then it’s all served on a Waterford blaa with a basket of skin-on rooster chips. Most of what we serve in the Purty Kitchen is made in the Purty Kitchen. Where there are exceptions to that, we have sourced things from other great Irish food producers like Boulaban Farm in Tipperary for our salted caramel ice cream, or Arbutus Bakery in Cork for delicious sourdough rye bread.
