    Dubh was beautifully laid out with lovely wooden tables and interesting design features. The food was wonderful, really fresh with well balanced flavours and the service was perfect. The place was really buzzing early on a Friday evening. We travelled up from Portlaoise and it was worth the journey. We'll go again.

    Food was excellent. The beef main was so tender and juicy, the crab starter was light, fresh & zesty and the brownie desert was delicious. Service was spot-on. Not in your face. A very good wine selection & cocktail menu.

    Restaurant was very pretty and quiet. It was warm and inviting. Tea coffee and dessert were super. Main food was not our taste and very expensive. I would however recommend Dubh to a friend, as it was recommended to me by a family member.

    Wonderful evening in Dubh. The ambience is neighbourhood welcoming, the service warm without being intrusive and the food was delicious. The starter could have been a little more generous(poached pear with young buck cheese and chicory) but that aside it had lovely flavour; the main (hake) was very tasty and the baked basque cheesecake nicer than the original I’ve been lucky enough to taste in San Sebastián. Well worth a visit and lovely to have somewhere like this in Newbridge.

    Had wanted to try Dubh for a good while now and I was not disappointed at all. From the moment we arrived we were looked after, service was top notch. I had the beef cheek and it was the best I've ever had, so tender and succulent. Topped off with a beautiful bottle of riesling Highly recommend a visit.

    Cannot fault a thing from our meal last night.. Been meaning to visit for over a year, but enjoyed every second of our time spent there last night. Everything from the decor to the plates is carefully considered, and reminds me of restaurants in Copenhagen - perfectly hygge! Food was SUPERB - starters were the highlight for both of us and the pork main course was a dream Already cannot wait to come back and looking for another excuse to book in, we live about 25 minutes away by car and it's worth every minute to come visit here.

    Surpassed all my expectations- fabulous food. Every part of each dish is well thought out. Dessert exceptional. I’m looking forward to returning already to try out the rest of the menu. Staff very friendly and attentive. Only drawback is that our table was booked for a further reservation after 1hr 45 mins - would have happily sat for longer!

    We really enjoyed ourselves in Dubh last night and will definitely be back, the guys made our birthday girls night. The main topic of conversation between us all afterwards was how absolutely amazing the food was. Its was without doubt one of the top meals ive ever eaten and certainly the best, by some distance, that I've ever had in kildare.
