A small local restaurant with super food, really good. Chef gets really good flavours and super presentation. Staff are great, not sure but it looks like a husband and wife team, him in the kitchen and her out front. The only problem is the physical restaurant, it is small and the décor is a bit "cheap" in relation to the... More

Le Plancha is a suburban restaurant known probably only to locals. Have been there now a few times and it always delivers. Although it is small you don't feel closed in around anyone. The food is very good, service is excellent and friendly. Overall a great experience. I had the chicken wings and paella which were not very adventurous of... More

This is not top end dining, but you can get that (and pay triple for it) in central Dublin. This is good, honest, well-cooked food...and generous portions, even from the well-priced Early Evening menu. Look at their website for more info (menus etc) This gives you a fair impression of what to expect. For those who have left negative reviews... More

My boyfriend invited me over there and we had one of the best pork dish ever !!!!! It was fresh, deliciously simple and complex and pack of flavour at the same time!! For desert we had the apple and blackberry crumble and the selection of ice creams. Both were very very good. We would definitely go back there ! Only... More

Visited La Plancha, Newtown Park recently. The reviews were good so decided to give it a whirl. It was buzzy and atmospheric downstairs but we were led upstairs to an empty room. The waiter was friendly and assured us that we wouldn't be on our own for long and sure enough people began to trickle in but it was still... More

A friend introduced me to this lovely little restaurant, which has a really good early evening menu, which they let you avail of all evening I think from Tues - Thurs. 21 Euro for 2 courses and 26 for 2 courses. The chicken wings on the starter menu are the best I have every had in Dublin. I tried the... More

A lovely spot off the beaten track in Blackrock, we booked in advance and arrived earlier than expected but the friendly waitress was happy to seat us and serve us. We opted for the early bird menu, and were not disappointed, it offers a wide choice of starters, mains and desserts. The food was delicious and not just your typical... More

Le Plancha is a quality small little restaurant close to Blackrock. The service is really good and the food was delicious. I had the Duck for main and Wings for starter. Both quality especially the wings. Pricewise its very fair, I would recommend it and I will be back!
