“Favorite restaurant in Dublin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

We have been regulars in Dax for quite some time now ... as a couple, as family, with friends and for business. In our view it is simply the best and most consistent restaurant in Dublin in its class - it is discrete.

Dax isn't cheap, but represents very good value for what it delivers ... great food (menu changes reasonably frequently to reflect the seasons), great wine list (even if we are set in our ways), great staff (professional) and great atmosphere ... I cannot recall a single occasion when we have been disappointed ... and it is rare when we bring someone (business or personal) that they are not impressed.

Really not a lot more to say, other than make a booking!

“Really enjoyable place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

We spent an evening there w/o reservation, had no problem, not even being frowned upon, but rather welcomed with a smile. Service was kind and warm, the food excellent. We would definitely come back!

“Great food but tasting menu not value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012 via mobile

The food is exquisite but the tasting menu is poor value as not enough meat options and still feel hungry at the end of it which is not great when you're paying 125 euros per head (incl wine ) .
