Description: Modern Irish restaurant showcasing the best of Irish produce. Hidden away in the heart of Dublin 4. Unusually only open Thursday-Saturday inclusive from 6pm. In a throw back to the concept of the original fixed table d'hote menu our chefs develop an original menu each week offering a choice of three starters, one meat, fish main & vegetarian main course and a dessert or cheese board for €49. Mulberry garden is also available for Private and Corporate Hire every day of the week.

We were a foursome on a busy Saturday night and were lucky to book, a day before, a table at about 8.45pm, though would have preferred earlier. The cosy bar is very inviting and includes draft beer so no need for lads to tank up in Kiely's beforehand! We liked it so much we had our digestif there on the way home!
There is only a table d'hote menu which is a little disappointing particularly as many diners nowadays prefer to eat one or two courses. The choice is limited - only two mains - but there is a vegetarian menu as well - so it might be a good idea to ask what the menu is before booking as fussy eaters could be upset.
Having said that most of the food was excellent, the only problem being over salted fish. On mentioning the excessive salt (having come across this before I wonder is it to cover up the blandness of farmed fish?) the maitre d' took off some of the charge for the food and gave us each a glass of dessert wine.
Service was friendly but leisurely, which i didn't have a problem with, but my better half did as she doesnt like eating after 10pm. The starters arrived promptly but there was a gap of about 45 minutes from when we finished the starters until the main course arrived. So if you dont fancy leisurely dont go for the second sitting on Saturday night - actually applies to many Dublin restaurants. It is only open Thursday to Saturday, dinner only at €40 per person. Wine is from €22 a bottle.
I feel this place will only get better and better and I will definitely return to witness that.

Lovely restaurant out in Donnybrook that is full of charm. Attended a fundraising lunch here and the food and service were first class. It's a little off the beaten track but worth a visit out.

I went to this restaurant when it was Ernies . It was always a nice place but the internal decor now is much better . Overall has the feeling of sophistication . Greeting properly on the way into the restaurant .Young but experienced waiters/ waitresses . Proper table clothes and large napkins. Tables facing the garden are very relaxing .The food is new ( I suppose ) French cuisine .Portions, as you would expect, are very small but then you do not go here for quantity. All served very well. It is a fixed menu for € 40 . Wine minimum over €25 .Overall excellent forany special occasion.

Hi it's not often that I cant wait to go home and write a review but this definitely deserves a star. Yes as all the others have said it's a set menu for €40 or you can have the full tasting menu for €60.
We went for the set menu for €40, white onion soup and chicken, followed by dessert of the day. It was exceptional. The bread - (oh we ate so much of it)! was wonderful. I could not pick out one member of staff that was good as they were all good, Claudio the maitre de made us feel welcome from the moment we entered, as did the american male waiter and all the girls. The wine list is reasonably priced and has some very good wines. Top class and well worth a visit. Claudio insisted on giving us some bread to take home.
