This is a popular haunt for Dubliners dropping in for a relaxed brunch, or a dozen oysters and a glass of Champagne on their way to the theatre. The city’s business community also rely on the privacy of our intimate dining space.
Menus, which are available for brunch, lunch and dinner seven days a week, are overseen by CLIFF’s Executive Chef Martijn Kajuiter, who holds a Michelin Star at our sister property, Cliff House Hotel in County Waterford. Head Chef Sean Smith ensures every dish is perfect.
Serving brilliantly executed Dublin classics, the Cliff Townhouse restaurant menus are equally suited to a three-course celebration or a light bite in the middle of the day. Staples include generous salads, eggs Benedict, Galway oysters, Irish lobsters, dressed Yawl Bay crabs, wild sea trout and 10oz Hereford rib eye steaks.
By day our dining room is flooded with light from two tall sash windows. High ceilings and chandeliers add elegance, while on the wood-panelled, corniced walls there are Art Deco-style light sconces in antique silver. Large, brass-edged mirrors reflect the sunshine, while the parquet floor recalls the building’s Georgian past.
