I wanted to take friends from Dublin to dinner near my hotel, and chose Keshk based on the very positive Tripadvisor reviews. I made a reservation on line several weeks prior. Just as well, as the cafe was packed. Staff were pleasant and helpful. We decided to share. Some dishes were excellent; others less so. The baba ganouj (6.75 euro)... More

Its rare a restaurant would tick all boxes for me but I think this might be the one that does. Food, prices, staff, location, atmosphere, size, everything is fantastic. Not to mention that its BYOB. We had a fantastic evening and I will definitely be going back. I would highly recommend the 'Kafta in Garlic Butter'.

Just arrived in Dublin and discovered this very popular restaurant en route elsewhere. We decided not to travel any further and they squeezed us in. Our initial judgement was spot on and we both had a very enjoyable and tasty meal with a first class service.

Stayed close by and received a recommendation. Knew to bring a bottle of wine and had looked at the menu before-hand. My wife had the "feta-fritters" as an appetizer and loved them. "They melt in my mouth". I had the lamb chops and my wife had a chicken dish. Both were fantastic. Service was great as was the atmosphere. (Although... More

Dined on a Saturday evening. The restaurant was very busy and service was very prompt. I had the deep fried tiger prawns which were delicious. For the main I had the Lamb chops which were a little over but nice. It was a little costly overall as we brought our own wine but enjoyed the evening. Not a bad restaurant... More

Bring your own wine to this little gem - they don't have a licence (and they don't charge corkage); if you forget, there's a wine shop nearby. Food and service here are excellent. Good range of delicious middle-eastern dishes, authentically-prepared and served by cheerful staff. Obviously popular among those who know, the atmosphere has a buzz and the value is... More

Having just spent 3 nights in Dublin, my wife and I were so impressed with this Turkish restaurant on our first night, we dined these two nights later. The ambience is cosy and the Turkish fare is cooked fresh and is served piping hot. I had the moussaka with chilli flaked roasted potatoes which was delicious and very plentiful.The restaurant...

Only dropped for a quick lunch, and was absolutely amazed by the quality of the food. The restaurant is a gem and I'd would definately visit again.

I was looking for a nice place for night out with the family, found this place while searching on the internet. Made my booking online (this is important as it is a busy restaurant). Very nice place, a little bit small but didn't really mind that. Very nice staff, excellent food. Price is ?? (20-30 euro per person) but it... More

Having lived a year in Syria and six months in Egypt, I really appreciate quality Mediterranean cuisine at reasonable prices. Relatively small restaurant with great service. Brought here by a cousin who seems well known to the staff. I had the mixed grill and it was cooked perfectly to my direction. My cousin enjoyed the daily special with hummus for... More
