The Lord Edward - the oldest sea food restaurant in Dublin

It doesn't get to say that, unless it does sea food, and does it really, really well. Which they do.

Dinner in an out of time and cosy place with very fine seafood served by two great and smart gentlemen who makes the place so warm.

I had the feeling we were back in time a bit. The entrance is not glamorous and you can easily pass by without knowing it. Inside it looks like an old bar but the bartender is very friendly. We had some beers and went upstairs in the restaurant where everything looks like an old living room with a cozy fireplace.... More

My boyfriend and I were in town for the weekend and stopped in to The Lord Edward for what was supposed to be a quick bite. But a combination of good atmosphere and a cracking early bird menu lured us into the whole 9 yards - the breadbasket, starters, mains and dessert, topped off with a couple of glasses of... More

I really wanted Lobster when on Holiday so my boyfriend and I visited this restaurant. We both had the Lobster Thermidor which was lovely and for 50 euros for each dish, it wasn't bad value for a whole lobster. It is an interesting location as it is above a pub I believe but even though the decor was old it... More

Okay, I gotta be honest, the place looks almost derelict from the outside........as for the inside, it literallly hasnt been touched in 50 years, and not in the good way........the food was again stuck in a time warp, and was so bad it was laughable........the service was a comedy.........and maybe thats how they should market the place....

Whilst showing friends around this part of Dublin we popped in for a pint and savoured the atmosphere of a real Dublin pub

As we were staying really close to the Lord Edward we looked it up on this site and decided to pay a visit. As others have rightly said the food is of a very good quality. It is not cheap, as you would expect from a prime location. The entrance would easily put you off, but the experience is worthwhile.... More

Love this restaurant. The great service is matched by the food. They have ban extensive menu with plenty of dishes. From seafood standards to unique plates. The waiters are articulate and educated enough about the menu to recommend items and work with you to find the right dish for your taste. All of this is served in spacious dinning rooms... More
