Sandwiches, sushi and steaks: Dublin’s 25 best restaurants*
*According to users of Trip Advisor. The travel website has compiled a list of the top ranking eateries in the city.

FROM MAIN COURSES that cost a tenner to Michelin starred meals that cost an arm and a leg, Trip Advisor has put together a handy list of Dublin’s best restaurants.

The list rankings are based on the number of reviews an establishment has received, and the rating given to it by each reviewer.

Top of the list is Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud, located on Merrion Street Upper, with one reviewer saying that “each course was like Christmas morning”. The French eaterie is Ireland’s only two star Michelin restaurant and features dishes like “milkfed lamb shoulder” and “croquettes of suckling pig”.

Next on the list is Parnell Square’s Chapter One, another Michelin-starred establishment. Eighty-five per cent of its reviews rank the restaurant as “excellent” and one satisfied customer said it was the “jewel of Dublin’s dining crown”. A four course dinner at Chapter One will set you back €65, while the tasting menu is €80.

Derry Clarke’s L’Ecrivain on Baggot Street is number three on the list, followed by Kinara, which is the highest ranking non-Michelin-starred restaurant on the list. It’s been serving Pakistani and Indian cuisine on the Clontarf Road since 2001 and main courses come in around the €20 mark.

Juniors Deli and Café on Bath Avenue makes it onto the list at number seven. It serves sandwiches, soups and salads during the day and them transforms into an Italian-style dinner venue in the evening. At eleven is Templebar’s Eden, while 79 per cent of reviewers who ate at Yamamori Sushi on Lower Ormond Quay thought it deserved the “excellent” seal of approval and put it at number 13.

Tapas, Brazilian food and Irish cuisine all get a look in with The Port House (21), Sabor Brazil (15) and Peploe’s (20) all making the list, while Camden Street’s Green 19, which offers main course for €10 was named as “one of the best places I ate in Ireland” by one reviewer.
