Dylan McGrath is a genius with vegetables. The veggie part of Rustic Stone's menu was a minefield of flavor and creativity. Truly a "food as art" experience. The icy cucumber soup is a powerful, crispy gondola to food heaven. You pour the flavor bursting concoction of cucumber with light mint accents in the glass beaker over a dollop of frozen... More

We didn't have a reservation but turned up on a busy Friday night after being recommended here by a taxi driver. There were no tables available but we were told they could fit us in within 40 minutes so we agreed. All I can say is wow! My wife and I had the most incredible meal and cocktails. Must easily...

My visit did not start very well, I had to wait more than 30 minutes to get a table. Well, my fault I had not booked it. So please make reservations beforehand. I had chilli peppers for a small starter: not really tasty, a bit watery and not spicy at all. So, expectation for the main course were not really... More

We brought a group of 12 for dinner as part of a business meeting. The Rustic Stone was able to accommodate us and put us all at the same table in the downstairs area. The food was very good, especially the starters / appetizers. The use of stones as serving plates was an excellent touch and allowed us to keep... More

Excellent healthy cuisine with wonderful service. We shared the lime salad and three of the healthy microfoods that were exceptional!

Fourth time and last time to dine here. Dylan McGrath (chef and part owner) was dining beside us. Once he arrived service suddenly ceased and it was all about Dylan! Asked for two glasses of red wine to accompany main course! Had to ask 3 TIMES!!!!! Shocking treatment.

I had a voucher that was too good to be true - 24 euro for 2 people for a 2 course lunch. We got to try a delicious starter each and also sample 4 different steaks on the stone. The food was plenty for lunch, and very reasonably priced. I'd be happy to go back and pay full price for... More

Several friends had recommended the Rustic Stone to me during a recent biz trip to Dublin. Food, service and wine selection are all perfect. My Tuna Steak was stellar and using the hit stone to individually "cook" each piece to taste was a unique and tasty experience. I'm in Dublin a lot and I wish I had tried Rustic Stone... More
