Mark Shannon has brought all his experience to bear to make Bistro One a place that survived the tough economic times by the age old qualities od service, quality and value for money. I have eaten here on average 40 times a year for the last four years and cannot remember a bad experience. Simply put it is great but... More

This fabulous restaurant owned and run by the wonderfully charismatic and seasoned restaurateur, Mark Shannon. Its almost a restaurant for 'the locals' in this up market and affluent South County Dublin village. And Mark has been here in this comfortably intimate upstairs classic for almost as many years as 'the locals'. The menu is wide enough to give you a... More

Love this small, intimate and very popular bistro located in Foxrock, south county Dublin. It's a real jewel of a restaurant servicing many locals with simply stunning food boasting quality ingredients all the way. As well as providing great food, they offer carafes of wine in different measures so you can sample a glass or two of your favourite tipples...!... More

Bistro one is a classic suburban restaurant. Nice inoffensive food and good service. A clientele that I guess is made up of regular customers who want few surprises aren't disappointed. Personally thought it a bit dull but that is a matter of taste. Excellent friendly staff and highly attentive service. Carpets in the restaurant keep the noise levels down which... More

Meeting friends on a Saturday and we dined at Bistro One, in the village of Foxrock in South County Dublin. A thoroughly enjoyable evening. Wonderful atmosphere, excellent menu that delivered beautifully, and attentive and friendly service from start to finish. We’ll be back.

Visited this restaurant after a game of golf nearby. It is situated upstairs over a shop and is very cramped. It was full the night we were there and it looked like extra tables had been shoved in to accommodate the crowd. I had salmon which was rather overcooked and dry. Expensive for what it was.

Recently visited with friends. Very efficient service and good food at reasonable prices.Fixed and a la carte menus very good value.Will certainly return. While I can see space is a problem the lack of an area to meet for a comfortable pre-dinner drink is a gap. Billy

I find it a little difficult to make up my mind about this restaurant which is based in the heart of Foxrock Village in South County Dublin. The restaurant is situated upstairs on the first floor and is spacious and bright. The food is generally good, well-prepared and the staff are pleasant but there are some things that bother me....
