I come hear at least 4 times a year, it’s great place if your going to the theatre afterwards.
The first floor always has a bit more atmosphere so when booking always ask.
The decor is perfect bit like a New York loft Apmt and the menu absolutely mouthwatering.
For starter we had the Roasted beetroot & pickled ‘watermelon radish’ salad with roasted hazelnuts, truffled goat curd and baby cress and the McLoughlin’s smoked beef pastrami, Crozier blue dressing, poached pears, walnuts and watercress. Both dishes were beautifully presented and delicious. Fabulous combinations of flavours. For mains we had Spatchcock Monastervin quail with colcannon, Ballinwillin wild boar black pudding, quince ketchup and onion rings and the McLoughlin’s lamb’s liver with mashed turnip and apple, red cabbage, cider and bacon gravy. Again, absolutely melt in the mouth.
Accompanied the food with some house wine which went perfectly. Staff were attentive without being too ‘in your face and love the fact the restaurant champions local producers. All in all a fantastic place to eat.
The Winding Stairs Dublin. Just by the Half Penny bridge on the north side.
