Best for Families - Expert review of Café Bar Deli

An Italian three-in-one, Café Bar Deli offers three times the value of its peers.

There is great coffee and cake during the day and consistently delicious and affordable food in the evening – I return time and time again for my favourite dishes and I'm never disappointed. This is a superb choice for groups who can eat and drink their night away without breaking the bank.

Food and drink: 

Excellent, fresh salads are a staple food for many Dubliners and you can choose two portion sizes to suit lunch or dinner, while their pizzas are fresh, crispy and creative. Soups are yum, tapas are sharing starter options and mouth-watering desserts offer lashings of chocolate options!

Recommended dishes: 

The chickpea, feta and broccoli salad is tasty and nutritious each and every time. The spicy lamb salad is delicious and the hot chilli beef pizza is lip tinglingly tasty - obviously I'm a fan of spicy food so bear that in mind! The tempting pasta options are fresh and simple.  

Ambience: 

The café style lends itself to convivial eating and drinking. The place is generally humming in the evenings and at weekends. 

Service: 

It's super efficient. Young, bubbly staff keep this place moving, and fast. This is a great lunch option for speedy service and low prices.

Location: 

It's on Grafton Street in the city centre, in the old Bewleys building.

Price advice: 

Pizzas from 10-15 euros are big enough to share (if you’re not too hungry) and generous salads cost 8-12 euros. Wine is excellent value also and a carafe of house wine is the most affordable choice.

Tables to book: 

The theatre cafe in Grafton Street is the most intimate space, and you can sit out on the balcony if it's sunny.
