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 light bite or a feast from our all-day food menu including Neapolitan style pizzas and freshly made pastas. 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)

    The room was uncomfortably cold. Otherwise everything was good.

    Fallon & Byrne Wine CellarResponded 5 days agoHi Hugh, We're very sorry the room was cold early Friday and this made your lunch uncomfortable. Sometimes it takes a while to heat up the whole cellar, but we will work to fix this. Thank you for your feedback and for taking the time to write this review! Hope you visit again!

    We had a lovely meal on a Saturday evening in the Fallon and Byrne wine cellar. The ambience and setting of the restaurant is perfect for a date night. We loved the ability to pick our bottle of wine from the wine cellar which is exceptional value as you just had to pay the corkage cost. The food was great, the cheese board in particular wasn’t delightful. The service from the staff was 10/10. We will be back here again!

    It was a busy evening so there were delays in taking and serving orders. I ordered the ragu and the pasta was a little dry. The Mediterranean fish stew was the only saving grace. For dessert, we ordered a brownie sundae and there was very little brownie and too much ice cream/cream. Overall a very average experience.

    Have eaten there previously and enjoyed the experience. On this occasion it was very disappointing. The sharing platter to start was fine but main courses were very poor. It seemed that the service and the kitchen were overwhelmed by the level of bookings.

    Busy Saturday service. We ordered starters that did not arrive until the main course 40 mins later. Service was infrequent. We would have stayed for desert and an extra bottle of wine had it been better but cut our losses and went elsewhere.

    Food is excellent. Wines choices are great. But the girl that took our order and was on hand to assist for the whole evening was superb. Knew the menu and her wines and it made the night having her as our waitress. You can have great food and poor service and it won’t be a good experience. You can can have average food and great service and it will be good night. But the food and the service here combined made it an excellent night.

    Shared a delicious charcuterie board to start. Waiter brought extra bread without being asked which was great. Venison ragu was tasty & wholesome. The pork belly, duck leg & toulouse sausage cassoulet was not what we were expecting. Although very tasty, it was 85% pork belly, a small bit of duck leg meat & no sausage. When it says duck leg we were expecting a leg of duck, bones & all. Pizzas looked great & we will return. Atmosphere was lovely & waiter was very good.

    Lovely relaxed setting for a catch up with friends. Opted for a bottle of wine from the shelves. Good value corkage of just €1 on off-peak evenings. Food wasn't the most impressive aspect (thought the fish stew bland and pizza over salty) but everything else was great.

    Love it here. We go not just for the wine but for the food! It was fairly busy but with a chilled atmosphere. We weren’t rushed like you are in some restaurants - a nice pace between our nibbles and main. Get the chips with aioli- you won’t regret it! Staff are super!

    I have eaten in the Wine Cellar many times and generally enjoy the experience. It’s a nice space. The menu has changed recently though. Yesterday, I chose a vegetarian pasta dish which sounded lovely with Jerusalem artichokes, squash and kale. It was so bland and tasteless that it reminded me of baby food. A charcuterie and cheese board was sparse for the price. The fish stew looked nice enough. Most of all though, I’m over the disgusting toilets. I’m average sized, in terms of both height and weight. The toilets are so cramped that one always has to brush against the wall to enter the cubicle as the door cannot open very wide. The door and wall were so sticky yesterday as I flattened myself against the wall, that it turned my stomach. Inside, the cubicles were messy and dirty. It’s very disrespectful to customers to expect them to put up with such substandard toilet facilities. Sort it out guys.
