Excellent service. Knowledgable staff made good recommendations, which were spot on. Good food. Try the chips with parmesan & truffle oil.

“Great food & service, not cheap!”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

I really enjoyed the food here, and the service was excellent but there were a couple of things that won't have me coming back here. I think this place is a little overpriced considering the price of a nearby restaurant that I found to be much nicer. I recall asking for a tap water, and they charged us for water on the bill, maybe I should have disputed this. The wine is expensive but I guess that's what you pay in an expensive restaurant these days! The atmosphere wasn't the best but maybe it was because we were a bit early. I can't fault the food and the staff were lovely but I can't justify the price when there's better on offer down the road..

“Fab Barand restaurant”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

This restaurant/bar is in the basement of the Merrion Hotel, and is mostly all brick and stone, even the curved ceilings. The bar staff were excellent, and offered our party (of 13) a separate room but we stayed in the main bar area (with fireplace). We then moved to a separate private dining room and had a wonderful dinner, salmon, seafood tower (wow) mussels, yum!
