Best for Dining alone - Expert review of Ely Wine Bar

Excellent wine, organic food, a relaxed mood, Ely is one of Dublin’s most atmospheric spaces.

For romance, a gossip, or an intense chat, you can't go wrong at Ely Wine bar. I love it. This Dublin star is one of the few places that appeals to all. Simple things are done to perfection – wonderful wine, champagne, sherry etc, and great food, the mood is convivial and the setting is comfortable. Ok, you’ll spend a little more than average, but it’s worth it.

Food and drink: 

There is a superb wine list with informed and educated staff to advise you. Delicious, organic food is sourced from the owner’s own farm in County Clare, along with locally caught seafood - it's a superior choice across the board. You won’t want to leave.

Recommended dishes: 

The burger and chips are lip-smacking, and always hit the spot. The oysters are popular too.

Ambience: 

Cavernous surroundings, especially downstairs, evoke an authentic wine bar experience – you could be in Italy or France! Relaxed, upbeat staff keep spirits up. Relax in style.

Service: 

There are well-informed staff when it comes to the wine and service is fast, informal and friendly.

Location: 

There are two more city centre branches as well as this flagship location on Ely Place, just off Baggot Street.

Price advice: 

An early bird menu offers the best value, with two courses for 24.95 euros, or there’s a bar menu offering tasty snacks for approximately 10 euros each.

Tables to book: 

Tables downstairs are the most fun and romantic. 

Other useful branches: 

There is Ely bar and brasserie on Custom House Quay, Dublin 1, as well as Ely gastro pub, Grand Canal Square. Both are equally great options with consistent standards.
