Description: Since 1999, the iconic ely wine bar has paved the way for engaging, rewarding and fantastic value wines in Dublin. Not only characterised by its extensive list of 100 wines by the glass, 400 by the bottle, it's also loved for its melt-in-the-mouth organic beef, organic pork and "Craggy Island" lamb - sourced through ely's organic family farm in The Burren, Co. Clare.

“Great Buzz”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

Ely is a buzzy cellar wine bar - Great variety of wines by the glass - Barmen are very knowledgable and also have a sense of humour.
The bar food (tapas style) was limied in choice but of the highest quality.

“Swift serving & good quality”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

Very much to our surprise we were invited to follow the waitress to the basement to be seated. You instantly forget this is a basement ! Good restaurant set up, with very attentive personnel, responding swiftly to all culinary needs end serving a qualitative meal on short notice. These people understand their craft !

“Great food & ambience”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

We've been here a few times and this is an excellent restaurant. Great staff, superb food, and unbelievable wines. Their Prosecco is the best we've ever had and the sirloin steak I had last night was delicious.
The restaurant is on two floors, ground floor (not so great in terms of ambience) and downstairs, where there's a great buzz.
Go, you won't be disappointed!

“top notch!”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

their menu has delightful choices - it is obvious the food is prepared and presented with great thought and care. layers of flavours, excellent wine pairing recommendations, the best service I have ever experienced - our server was attentive but almost invisible - he would appear out of nowhere to top up our wine or whisk away an empty dish. he was very helpful and respectful. the décor lends itself to a romantic evening or a large fun gathering. I can't wait to go back!
