The food: Modern Irish
Neighbourhood bistro with Chef Anita Thoma at the helm, formerly of Italian restaurant Il Primo (now closed) where she became famous for her risottos. The menu at Farmhill is Italian meets Irish, with slow-cooked beef and pine nut cannelloni next to fish finger sandwiches, and of course risotto. Great value early-bird with two courses for €17.
