Took a few colleagues here and was not disappointed. Everything from food to wine to service was exceptional. I am looking forward to another visit.

My husband and I and two friends went to Dax on May the 3rd for dinner. We had just arrived in Dublin and it was our 40th wedding anniversary. I made reservations on line before arriving. The ambience was wonderful! Very small and intimate with just a few tables. no loud music nor loud talking. Very comfortable and the food was outstanding. It was the best meal we had while visiting Ireland and Scotland. Having said this it was VERY expensive. We had two bottles of wine and the bill was 500 american dollars with tax and tip. I recommend this resaurant for a special occasion! Our waiter was wonderful and very personable. A great dining experience.

I chose this restaurant because of the write ups on Tripadvisor. The experience met all my expectations of good food, ambiance and excellent service.
The portions are small (nouvelle cuisine) but delicious. ( my partner had a somewhat mediocre goat's cheese dish starter however, but mine which was a haddock fish cake dish was very tasty). We chose the Table d’Hote Set Menu which fairly interesting if somewhat limited
The Al la Carte was too pricey which is a bit disappointing as the dishes looked really tempting. The service was friendly, efficient and together with the well presented food made this an overall satisfying dining experience!

A visit to Dax Restaurant is a must on your Dublin stay! Everything about this restaurant was superb from the moment the door was opened upon our arrival! The waiters are charming, friendly and refreshingly knowledgeable about the food they are serving you. No attention to detail is missed, they are so attentive without being intrusive and the food was seriously heaven on a plate ...! The wine too was top notch and one bottle simply wasn't enough!! There is nothing nicer than experiencing an exquisite three course meal WITHOUT feeling completely stuffed and over-indulged when you leave ... this is precisely what you get at Dax as they have the balance spot on! We sought this little gem out and went here on the last night of our stay ... more's the pity, as we could happily have eaten here every night! Simply superb and a must!

One of the best restaurants in Dublin. Service impeccable, enjoyable atmosphere and excellent menu. The A la Carte menu has ideal selections with the Starters being of a high quality. The main course has Veal which was exceptional.
An excellent restaurant to compliment a stay in Dublin.
