“Our fav restaurant in Dublin!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

Unbeatable food - especially the parfait, pork belly-lamb & fish, great service, very welcoming an great value to top it all off! If you are hungry and want top class food then The Arch is the place to go.

“Superb from start to finish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

What can we say? This restaurant is top notch. I travel over Ireland and the UK for work and regularly eat in restaurants in London, Manchester, Glasgow etc and none of them compare to the Arch Bistro for quality and value for money. The atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable - Patrick and the front of house team are super efficient at putting guests at ease and their knowledge of the food and wine means they can provide good, reliable advice about the best choices and combinations across the menu. We dined on Friday night and the place was busy so we were glad we had made reservations and I would recommend that you book in advance. We had the fillet steak and sea bass for main course, both were excellent. The chef, Stephen and the kitchen team were going flat out putting finishing touches to dishes just before they were whisked to the table by Patrick and his team. It's clear there is a happy vibe going on here with the staff and this just adds to the promise of a great night out. So, pre-book and leave yourself plenty of time to relax and enjoy the food, the wine and the ambiance. We have already booked to go back as there were so many other dishes on the menu we want to try.

“Fantastic restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

We had another wonderful evening in this special restaurant. The food was wonderful and excellent value. The staff were very courteous and efficient. 25 euro for a 3 course meal. The pork belly was to die for as was the fish and chicken. The desserts were gorgeous. Looking forward to our next visit.

“Fabulous find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Went to Saturday night dinner based on Trip Advisor reviews. It was a bit of a cab ride but well worth it! The staff were wonderful, friendly and helpful. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. Three course dinner extremely reasonable. the person who wrote "pub fare" must have been writing about a different place. Highly recommend this lovely bistro.
