Located a hop, skip and a jump from Grafton Street, there’s a simple idea behind Fallon & Byrne and it’s this: we believe in wonderful food, fine wine and great company. Spread over four floors in a stunning heritage building, Fallon & Byrne is Dublin’s award-winning foodie mecca and THE place to consummate your love of all things delicious. The elegant brasserie-style Restaurant is housed upstairs where light streams through tall windows into one of the city’s most handsome rooms, that also features a stylish cocktail bar. Serving modern Irish bistro-style fare in a buzzy & relaxed setting, our rib-eye steak & frites and Knickerbocker Glory are particularly renowned. For a pre or post-dinner drink, pay a visit the beautiful Wine Cellar and be sure to make time to look around our famous gourmet Food Hall on the ground floor.

Good first time experience. Great wine list, quality of the food was really good but dampened by the overly priced of dishes. Atmosphere a little soulless. Great service, all very attentive. Probably will not return.

Everyone in my party enjoyed their food except myself. I ordered the steak sandwich and it was really disappointing. The crisp bread it was served on with Branson pickle was like a brick. Wish I had order anything else but that. Service outstanding and cocktails a delight. Just stay away from the steak sandwich

A brilliant experience all round as usual just a bit quiet as is was Monday- reason for ambiance score which would have been higher on a busier night. Staff are excellent always and I never leave thinking anything could have been done better, been to Fallon &Byrne many times over the years and will continue to frequent long into the future.

We were in the restaurant on Sunday last to celeabrate our wedding anniversary, we were a little nervous about going back out to the big wide world, but we needn't have been, it was a lovely experience. Everything was explained to us on arrival, explaining that menu's were single use that staff sanitized every time they came to the table, there were little sanitizer gel's on the table for us, and staff were wearing viser's. The food was excellent and we were given two glasses of prosecco which i had requested on arrival, and what i was really pleased with was that we were not rushed, we will be back, and i must say that it made our first trip out after lock down most enjoyable and i would urge people to book a table, our restaurants need our support now more than ever....

Original flavours in the kiwi pesto on my green and healthy vegetable main dish after a perfectly balanced caesar salad all washed down with a delightful sauvignon blanc. Service attentive but never intrusive. Lunch at F&B re-confirmed this establishment as one of my favourites and the perfect setting to celebrate emerging from months of restricted living.

Great Food, Great Company Best Value for money. Every time I have a special occasion happening there’s only one place I would think, it’s Fallon&Byrne. With a diverse selection of food that follows the seasonality of ingredients and supports locally produced items, they create a superb gastronomic experience for every customer. Service was exceptional every one was very attentive, friendly and polite. This is the place if you don’t mind spending a bit more Bob just to make your day out or evening magical. Highly recommended!
