The food was amazing we had mainly fish dishes for starter and main and they were to the highest quality. The staff were great and if we are ever in Dublin again we will be beating a path to Dax.

French cuisine meets local Irish ingredients. Each dish presented complex flavors cooked to perfection. Wine pairings were fantastic. The menu was focused and imaginative. Service was fast. If you have a vegetarian dinning let them know ahead of time.
