The Cliff Townhouse is one of my favorite Dublin Restaurants. Located conveniently on Stephen’s Green, it has never disappointed. The plump Carlingford oysters tasted of the sea itself, while the black sole was perfection itself. Do go and be sure to reserve.

I really enjoyed this restaurant at Christmas time with my family, good old fashioned menu with great food and a lovely atmosphere, only complaint was that it was a bit cold in the dining room, overall great value for money

Had a lovely evening here. Food was really delicious. Only complaint would be around service which whilst attentive seemed a little condensing and irregular at times.
