We did not have reservation but since it was early, they accommodated us as long as we get done eating in three hours. That's a long time. We were done in an hour. The food was excellent and fast service. Don't miss this restaurant when in Dublin.

My husband and I were curious about this establishment after reading about it in various publications and he brought me there for a surprise luncheon experience. The restaurant is located in the basement of a beautiful Georgian building and our first impression was very positive thanks to the lovely welcome we received from both the owner and our waiter.

The food was incredible - very tasty and very nicely presented. Our server was very knowledgeable with great food and wine recommendations. Next time we visit Dublin, Dax will be... More

First time to Dax and I was pleasantly surprised. This understated hidden gem just off Fitzwilliams Square has been added to my top 10 restaurants in Dublin. The staff are very pleasant and attentive. I never had to ask for my wine glass to be topped up (something that not even Patrick Guilbaud could mange). The atmosphere is calm and... More

"DAX" was one of those places we had heard about for years and had many times threatened to visit, but somehow we never got there (apparently they're 10 years in operation) - until now. For us, it turned out to be a very good experience. This impressive restaurant is located at the Leeson Street end of Pembroke Street, and you... More

My fiancée and I ate here on 2 August. We had starter, main course and sweet. Staff were very friendly and informative when serving the food. The food was done to perfection and the bill at end a nice surprise compared to some eateries. Decor a bit plain but the place was buzzing from the throng of other customers enjoying... More
