Fallon & Byrne Wine Cellar

Wine Bar
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)

Great place to eat in a pretty chilled out environment.
The food was delicious, with the potato wedges & basil aioli begin really surprising ly good. I'm not a huge fan of any wedges, but we decided to order these and I'm so glad we did.
Saying that, everything we ordered was moreish !!!
Service was very friendly which adds to the overall experience. Without doubt we'll be returning again, and would definitely recommend people who haven't tried the Wine Cellar yet, to make a booking asap !! 10/10

We had a lovely lunch there yesterday.
We went for “The Works”, a shared platter of meats, cheeses and pâté. More than enough for 2 and extra baguette bread was provided as needed. We drank a lovely Sicilian red .
The place was quiet empty when we arrived but filled up quickly , but tables well spaced and due to the high ceiling, noise levels are low.
We love the quasi industrial feeling of the place softened by a variety of posters on the pillars .
Staff , as always, were friendly and very professional.

The ambience was lovely and aided by all social distancing and Covid measures being followed meticulously! The food was fresh and beautiful and you won’t be disappointed on the wine front either with even their cheapest red and whites on the menu surpassing expectations! Definitely worth a visit!

Nice casual atmosphere!
Found it a bit cold down there. Waited a while for extra bread we asked for and when it did come it wasn’t fresh...also waited a while to get our main course. Staff were nice but service was only ok.

I had booking for the restaurant not the wine cellar and was very disappointed to find 24 hours before hand the reservation was changed via OpenTable

This want acceptable as the occasion was a particular birthday and the cellar was not suitable , with loud music and noise

I contacted F&B as soon as the change the change and they never returned my call

The Cellar Bar is one of my fav places. Great ambience, service, food & fab selection of great wines. Been a number of times and the staff remain very compliant with Covid restrictions (checks on digital certs & id, hand sanitisers on each table).
Great eve. We’ll be back.

It was a fantastic night out, food was amazing,i would highly recommend the cheese board, it was lovely sharing it at the start of our meal. The atmosphere was great. Our wait staff were so lovely. The only bad comment i would have to make is the high tables were a bit awkward getting up & down from, especially if you are small like me,and the chairs were a bit uncomfortable. But overall my party of 3 had a Fantastic time.

One of the best dining experiences I’ve ever had… the ambiance of the restaurant is perfect. I got the cheese and meat board which was first class.. the wine I choose was beautiful. Still thinking about it now and it was four days ago! Get yourself down there!

It's nice that F&B have gone to the effort of producing a menu for vegetarians. However, I'm pretty sure even a casual query to any vegetarians would clarify that pizza and pasta is not much of an offering.
If they want to attract vegetarian diners, they will have to do better than that!
If the chef is struggling for ideas, I suggest he visit Cornucopia just down the road, or Glas in Chatham Street.
