“Wonderful Dining Experience always”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

I eat at this restaurant very regularly and each time is a wonderful experience. The food is superb, definitely Michelin star quality. The staff are so courteous and pleasant, nothing is too much trouble. The decor and ambience is first class and the sea view is breathtaking. Definitely a place to take someone special, you won't be disappointed. The Early Bird Menu is excellent value and their wine list is very good.

We booked a reservation for two at this beautiful restaurant. The food was divine and the view of Clontarf Bay was breathtaking. The ambience is perfect for those seeking a cosy and relaxing night with exquisite cuisine.

“Excellent restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

The food, the service, the decor, the location and overall quality of Kinara are excellent. It is always a treat to go here for dinner. Crisp white linen on the tables. They have a fantastic early bird menu for €19.95 which is the best value in Dublin. Wines are reasonably priced and there is a good selection.
