In the lower depths of Fallon & Byrne lies the romantic, candlelit Wine Cellar, where the shelves are stocked with wickedly quaffable wines from every corner of the globe. We can recommend every last one, to be enjoyed with a snack, a light bite or a feast from our rustic all-day food menu. And to banish those early week blues, we offer €1 corkage on all retail wines to enjoy in the Cellar every Monday & Tuesday (excluding December)

                                                              Service and staff was excellent. The squid was rubbery and the razor clams where not fresh and where from a tin. The wine was good as was the cheese on the charcuterie board, however the meats where not good and could have been bought from any supermarket. I think people go to the restaurant out of habit and because it’s a bit different but food wise there are other restaurants that are more satisfying.

The room was slightly cool because the glass in the door was being replaced, but the staff, always thoughtful and attentive, brought us a cosy blanket to use if we felt cold. We enjoyed mixed olives and a pate sharing board, with a wonderful Gavi to accompany the meal.

We were able to move to a not so breezy table but I found that the food went cold very quickly. However the food and wine were beautiful

                                                              I normally enjoy the wine bar at Fallon and Byrne but this it was freezing. Customers sat with coats and scarfs on. Red wine remained cold. It’s a pity as food is excellent and the maitre D so friendly and knowledgeable. Don’t think I could go back until there’s proper heating.

Atmosphere is there, plus now with the great new addiction of the delicious pizzas is even better! Service, though, this time wasn't the best. The waitress seemed a bit in a rush. Overall totally recommend Fallon and Byrne Wine cellar!

Some items a bit overpriced and may be being in Ireland offering a pint of Guinness It will never hurts
