The food: Seafood, small plates
Urchin Dublin

Seaside vibes in the city with some pretty inventive food. This beach hut basement is heavy on the seafood, but has plenty to satisfy carnivores too, including a wickedly indulgent duck liver and pear caramel choux bun.

"...at the end it feels like a scrappy affair. These are not so much small plates as canapés with notions. We should have ordered more carbs." 6/10.

"Just edging out the sobrasada for my dish of the night gong was our final plate. West Cork scallops marinated in ginger beer, lime juice and tonic, then topped with crispy seaweed (€12). Gorgeously fresh and zingy, it's the kind of food you'd be a long time getting bored of eating."

"Much as I loved the pork and liver dishes, as with the main restaurant overhead, the seafood dishes were arguably the stars. Scallops were cured in a vac-pack with seaweed, ginger beer, lime, lemon, and salt, giving the delicate flesh a zingy complex flavour." Food 8/10. Value 7/10.
