The food: Middle Eastern, Fusion

Middle-Eastern-ish diner from Joe Macken, the man behind Crackbird, Skinflint, Jo'Burger and Bear. Hey Donna is on the site of what was the first Jo'Burger, but this time puts vegetables centre stage (although there are plenty of meat options too). Flavours are Ottolenghi-esque with lots of Irish produce name-checked on the menu. Wines on tap and in bottle, homemade lemonades, and a lovely cocktail and beer selection.

"It may be quite a while since Jo’burger’s founder shook up Dublin’s casual dining scene with his burger place, but he certainly hasn’t lost his touch in the interim. A few more Donnas dotted around the place would be just lovely."

"It's already several streets ahead of other casual restaurants in this price range. Cheap and properly cheerful Hey Donna is a class act." 8/10.

"It was only open a couple of weeks when we visited and it needs, perhaps, a little more time to settle. It’s about big flavours and generosity and we need more of both in contemporary Ireland."

"...roast cauliflower, which comes with cashew, spiced butter and roasted peppers ... is a full-flavoured powerhouse of a dish that would thrill any vegetarian." Food 8/10. Value 8/10.

"Some fine tender squids on sour-dough toast rivalled the Bavette for our favourite protein, but there was also a shout-out for the citrusy Sumac chicken thighs." Food 7.5/10. Value 8/10.
