We recently ate two meals at Kinara and both were fantastic. The early bird special is good value and offers various options. The service was excellent and we highly recommend this restaurant!

Had a very delightful evening recently in Kinara. The 3 of us had different dinners and tried each others food. It was divine. Can't wait to return soon.

Kinara never fails to disappoint. Delicious meals, but can prove expensive if you don't avail of the early bird option. Ask for a window table as beautiful scenic views of Clontarf bay. Main meals beautifully presented in Denby style pots. Staff attentive and helpful.Real pity KInara Clontarf does not have a take away service though...

I'm sorry to report rather negatively about this restaurant. My wife and I, along with our wheelchair-bound nephew, booked a table last night. On arrival, it was quite difficult to manouevre the wheelchair to the table as the restaurant was quite packed. Customers were very understanding, as I nudged a couple of tables trying to reach our reserved table. The... More

Form is temporary, class prevails and endures. Kinara on the Clontarf Road is class. Over repeated visits over 3 years I have been astounded at the consistency of the quality of the food service ambiance at this totally cool restaurant in the picturesque setting of Clontarf and opposite the wooden bridge that leads to the wonderful Bull Island. This restaurant... More

We live in the area, and treat ourselves with Kinara every now and again. In the more than 10 times we have been here, we have never been dissapointed. The staff are excellent, friendly and attentive, and the monkfish start/main course is my favourite dish at any restaurant. The sweet naan is also fantastic. Highly recommend this restaurant.

We dream of Kinara and it's top of the list for any major treat or special occasion. The service and beautiful view of the waterfront makes you feel like royalty, while the colourful, flavoursome food in earthenware pots is divine. Gorgeous place.
