The Winding Stair
Fantastic place in the heart of Dublin , contemporary atmosphere, excellent food & a great wine list.
Easy going but very professional staff, loved it .
Delicious, well thought out dishes in the heart of Dublin. The space is intimate and open, a bit loud at timea, though this adds to the experience. The service was excellent. Our server was very knowledgeable in the menu and wine selections. He offered great insight into what to order.
Absolutely loved this place, staff were welcoming and approachable. Gave suggestions and recommendations, portion sizes spot on.
Looking forward to our next visit
Beautiful food, amazing service, expensive but totally worth it. Can’t wait to go back again!
Very good restaurant. Great location and fantastic food. Had the seafood chowder which was exceptional. Restaurant has fantastic views of the Ha’penny bridge.
Really enjoyed our pretheatre meal. Service was excellent and food was great. Fabulous river view.
Great atmosphere and good service. Food was bland, poorly seasoned and lacking flavour.
Great meal...happy to have had the opportunity to eat here on our visit from the States. Great scene, service and food.
Disappointing experience. Average food. Bland soup. Very expensive. Ordered dessert and was told they actually needed the table back so there was no time. Not impressed with that. They should let customers know time constraints when booking.
Modern twist on traditional Irish cuisine in a small quaint dining room overlooking the river River Liffey. Food/service was fantastic and the portions were more than generous. Best meal we had during our 10 day trip to Ireland.
Seafood chowder is as good as any I have ever had
Discovered this little gem a couple of years ago and we go back every time we are in Dublin. Great location, fabulous dining option and very courteous staff. Thoroughly recommended.
The food here was fab and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal - a real gem in Dublin!
Amazing food and it's actually decent value for what it is. The 1-star for service isn't for the wait staff, they were lovely.
Service staff didn’t have enough support. Too few servers. They seemed overwhelmed and stressed and there was no charm or banter that the Winding Stair is often complimented on.
Really lovely meal. The food was just delicious. From the appetizer - to the main- beef cheeks were wonderful- to the desert - the finer ice cream with the rhubarb was spectacular
Good food, good wine and good service. Lokal food.
Food a wee bit disappointing for the price
Food was incredible and very innovative
Great Vibe and a must when visiting Dublin.
Hidden gem in central location. Get a window seat for views of Ha’penny bridge and Liffey. Good value 2 or 3 course lunch deals with or without wine. House wine was really good and Guinness cake dessert delicious.
The food was great and the service was incredible :)
Food was good, but not great. I was hoping for more vegetables on the menu (i.e. salads)
Excellent food, the pork neck was outstanding. Good service in a very busy restaurant.
Great vibe and location with good regional menu. Loved having a table by the window looking out over the river and Halfpenny Bridge. Fun, lively atmosphere with Irish charm
The food and service was good; however, was way too noisy to carry on a conversation. I would not recommend for a special outing.
Sorry, food is good but having a brunch consisting of a single potato croquet can not cost you 18 euro.
We got a last minute table on Culture Night, which is surprising and lucky, as the place was so so good. The food was delicious (only complaint would be the food temperature - not everything on the plate was piping hot) and the service was outstanding. The wine list was interesting and broad, the desserts were irresistible. We look forward to going back!
A very very good restaurant, plenty of choices, delicious well presented food and prices what would be expected.
The worst treatment of customers I have experienced. The manager had the most appalling approach and tone with paying customers. The food was just ok so definitely not worth spending your time or money when there are many wonderful places to eat in Dublin.
The food was wonderful. This is the second time I have chosen the Winding Stair to celebrate a special occasion and the service was impeccable. The staff are excellent, and even though it was extremely busy they made you feel like you were the most important group in the room!
This place was excellent—authentic, well-prepared food, served by friendly servers, with a lovely view. We had the steak and the sole, and both were perfect. For dessert, the bread pudding and Guinness cake were outstanding. We were visiting here from the US and wanted something authentically Irish—The Winding Stair lived up to its stellar reputation!
Fantastic culinary experience in a beautiful house. Excellent and friendly service.
Had a lovely evening with great food , great wines and really good service. And the location is superb!
What a great place! Be prepared to climb some stairs (hence, the name). The Irish cuisine with a new twist was wonderful. I had the poached smoked haddock and it was sooo good. If I ever get back to Dublin I will come here to have that again. My husband had the beef cheeks and he loved them. My son had pigeon and though he thought it was good, he said the smoked haddock was better. My mother-in-law had sole and loved it. The wine selection was good and reasonably priced. The atmosphere was cozy and the service was good. Without a doubt we will come back if ever in Dublin again. I would have to say that we had our overall best dining experience in Dublin at The Winding Stair.
Excellent food. Lively atmosphere. Convenient for tourists. Close to public transport.
Delivers every time. Delicious, sophisticated and Irish! The food and wine menu is unbeatable.
The Winding Stair was recommended by a couple of guidebooks to Dublin. So happy we ate there. We couldn't get a booking till 9PM on a Saturday evening, but so worth the wait. A fantastic vibrant atmosphere, great decor and the table layout was conducive to having a friendly chat with the table next door. We absolutely loved the food....a bit pricey, but with food that good, who cares? Cannot recommend highly enough.
The food and the service was exceptionally good and welcoming.
Lovely location, great arrangement over 2 floors. Food and wine was excellent, generous and tasty portions.
Very good staff and helpful with recommendations.
Overall a great dining experience!
One of the best dining experiences I have ever had. The food was incredible, and the ambience was great. Also, the dessert and wine were very good. Would come back to Dublin just to go here.
