Expert review of The Cliff Town House Restaurant

Michelin-inspired food in glamorous surroundings opposite Dublin’s Stephen’s Green.

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.

Food and drink: 

Seafood heaven - oysters, lobster, langoustine, prawns, Dingle Bay crab, mussels.... and excellent beef and venison dishes for the boys.

Recommended dishes: 

Lobster or oysters are the stand out dishes for many. The organic chicken is highly rated. 

Ambience: 

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.

Service: 

The formal service is balanced by the intimate setting.

Location: 

It's central, opposite St Stephen’s Green, just around the corner from Grafton Street.

Price advice: 

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.

Tables to book: 

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.
