The food: Seafood
Michael's Mount Merrion

Local seafood restaurant serving incredibly fresh fish caught off the coast each day. Chef Gaz Smith took over in early 2017 and has been receiving nothing but rave reviews ever since. Guests are treated like family and the wine list is slowly becoming a contender on the Dublin wine scene. Worth a detour.

"When chefs open their own places it’s often about them. Here it’s about the food, excellence hiding in plain sight in the south-city suburbs up the hill from the bay." 9/10.

"...possibly the most extraordinary lobster experience of my dining life. One truly enormous shared lobster with claws thicker than my fist, beautifully cooked with pin-point precision firmness, the crispiest of chips, a textbook hollandaise sauce, a large mound of crab claws, and everything dripping in melted butter." Food 8/10. Value 9/10.

"As for the chef himself, I doubt you’ll find a happier one anywhere in the country, and it certainly shows in the simple but supremely tasty food that he and his kitchen team are turning out. "

"Genuinely charming service and seriously good food. Michael's is the kind of restaurant that everyone wishes was within walking distance of home. Although that might be dangerous." Food 8/10. Value 8/10.
