The Arch is the best restaurant outside of town that I've been to, the menu is well thought out and suits many taste both modern and traditional. Food was beautifully cooked, wine list is good and well priced and service was excellent. My only improvement is there isn't a lift which would be perfect for older diners in what is... More

Not one of the "best meals ever" (that is a ridiculously high bar to reach and should be taken off the site) but for Dublin, this was one of the best meals we have had in years. Excellent food, service, ambience and value. There was a brilliant menu and wine list and also some great Irish craft beers on offer.... More

We are delighted to have this restaurant on our doorstep. We have had two really fantastic meals there in the past month - really memorable food on both occasions along with superb service. Not only were the staff really friendly and helpful, but when my husband particularly wanted something he had eaten there previously that wasn't on the menu this... More

The service was perfect. Such a friendly & professional young man. The food was excellent. The mediteranean seafood soup starter is out of this world. The mains course were very good too. Will definetly go back.

You wouldn't normally expect much from a modest looking suburban pub / restaurant like this but the Arch Bistro will surprise you. We live very close but had overlooked it for several years in favour of other Terenure / Rathgar restaurants, but we realised our mistake when we can here for the first time a few months back - superb....

About a 20 min drive out of Dublin and the building does not look up to much but inside is a contemporary restaurant with really nice food (sticky duck was epic) and excellent service for a fair price (28 euros for a set 3 course dinner, which is good for Dublin) The wine was about usual price for a glass...

After booking a weekend away to Dublin for my fathers 60th birthday I needed to find somewhere suitable for a family meal. Unfortunately one of our party suffers from multiple food allergies, something that not all restaurants are great at dealing with from previous experience. Thankfully Arch Bistro was not one of those restaurants. Before booking I had a lengthy... More
