Dinner in a lovely, relaxing atmosphere. The food was delicious, and priced appropriately. The Matre'D was very happy to recommend a wonderful wine. Very enjoyable evening.

The Cellar Restaurant was fine, but the Cellar Bar is the real find. Great bartenders & fresh , imaginative cocktails. Both are located in the basement of the Merrion Hotel ( which is definitely worth the $$$!)

Met a friend here recently for a drink and a quick bite. Lovely cosy pub with comfy seats. Food was absolutely delicious and the wine even more so. The staff were all great too, I think the guy serving us was Phil (might have been manager) and he was fantastic!! I will definitely return here.

The Cellar restaurant of the Merrion hotel was an excellent choice for dinner on our short stay in Dublin. The service was very very good, with a hint of humor while remaining professional ( a young man from Croatia). The food was absolutely delicious. Very interesting pairing of tastes and beautifully served, and piping hot, which is a must for... More

Very good food, convenient, and reasonably priced for what it was. If I were staying at the Merrion again, I would consider this as a dinner option.

We were staying at the hotel for the weekend and on the Friday evening we thought we'd have a lighter, more informal dinner in the Cellar Restaurant (as that was the impression we'd gained of the Cellar Restaurant in comparison to Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud). The experience was different from that anticipated - in a good way. Smart, but not too... More

I was looking forward to eating here simply on the basis of it being in the Merrion hotel. There were three of us--two were there on business--and the food didn't live up to my expectations. Admittedly, some of it was nice looking, but none of us were impressed or happy w/ the taste. Finally, the dessert experience was just sad.... More

very nice location and good staff but let down by my meal which was only a steak. Very fatty and for the price I would expect quality. My partner had blackened sole and thought it was excellent, so disappointing
