Same menu as the other Port Houses, which is a very good thing. Lovely salads, delicious sea food, great wine. Similar decor, with beautiful exposed brick, candles and simple tables. Service was attentive and quick, just what we wanted. The only downside of this Port House is the toilets are a... read more

Mine and my girlfriends favourite place. Some of the nicest food I've ever had in my life and most importantly their bathroom looks like a throne

Unbelievable restaurant in popular Temple Bar district. Leave noise and chaos behind if looking for a romantic dinner in Dublin. Great selection of pintxos and tapas. Great wine list, and even better dessert wines. We have had a great time at local pubs and fine Irish food, but this was a nice change of pace for a quiet fabulous dinner.... More

Went for dinner here with a friend on Wednesday night having seen the good reviews. I'm a massive tapas fan and everything we ordered was fantastic. The ribs were gorgeous and the calamari was among the best I've had. If you go, definitely save room for the churros! 7 tapas to share and a glass of wine each came to... More

Food was amazing, service was ok (could be better) Myself and my partner ate here, it was fast service, we were in and out as we were in a hurry! We got a range of tapas between us and shared 6 together. I would really recommend this restaurant.

We found this place by just hanging around in the temple bar area. We do not regret stopping there! The food was delicious, even my Spanish boyfriend said it is as excellent as in Spain. The staff and service were really good. And a little +, the toilets are surprising :) We went again the following day as we enjoyed... More

We had dinner at The Port House Pintxo last Saturday evening, and were thrilled to get a table for the four of us at the last minute. Our timing was great actually - people were arriving and waiting for short periods through the whole evening. From start to finish this was a truly wonderful evening. The service was excellent and...

Me and my partner visited Dublin for 2 nights during February 2015. We stumbled across The Port House Pintxo whilst walking around the Temple Bar District on our first night.

This has to be the best Restauant I have been to. My review will not do this place justice!! Beautifully decorated, very romantic yet rustic with a modern cool vibe. The food is to die for, every dish we ordered was just delicious!! The sangria is the best I've had too!! And so reasonably priced for the quality of food.... More
