Expert review of The Cliff Town House Restaurant
A Michelin-starred chef is behind the new menu at this sumptuous restaurant and oyster bar, formerly Bentley’s, where a solid reputation with local celebrities and VIPs endures. Well-heeled socialites, businessmen and glamorous couples flock to smart surroundings. There’s a stylish bar upstairs for post-dinner drinks.
Seafood heaven - oysters, lobster, langoustine, prawns, Dingle Bay crab, mussels.... and excellent beef and venison dishes for the boys.
Lobster or oysters are the stand out dishes for many. The organic chicken is highly rated.
It's smart and stylish and the Maitre D’ is a charismatic character who breezes through to fuss over regulars a flamboyant way – he’s one of the star attractions.
The formal service is balanced by the intimate setting.
It's central, opposite St Stephen’s Green, just around the corner from Grafton Street.
The lunch or pre-theatre menu (Monday-Thursday 5.30-6.15pm) offers brilliant value at 20 euros for two courses or 25 euros for three. At the moment, there's a competitive dinner offer of three courses for 39euros.
Request tables by the window for views of Stephen's Green or if it's a more relaxed affair, head to the oyster bar at the back. There's a room upstairs for private dining.
