I I visited this little restaurant recently with a friend, I've never heard of it before but my friend had been there before. It doesn't stand out from the outside but inside it's cosy, cool and relaxed.
I had prawns to start, followed by seabass,...it was all excellent, I had no complaints with the food, the wine was bland, but it didn't take away from the whole experience.
What really stood out to me were the staff, a lovely lady showed is to our table and then we had a male water who was so friendly, good banter and very attentive, for instance I spilled something on my dress and he was straight over with a clean cloth and hot water and said "quick if you get it now you might save your dress"!
I would go back for that alone!More
We happened on this restaurant because it was close to the Lighthouse Cinema at Smithfield. It had a relaxed local feel, as opposed to catering mainly to tourists. The food is Italian, and we both enjoyed the chicken with chorizo main dish with a bottle...of red. The staff were friendly and attentive.More
In the heart of Smithfield, next to Jameson’s, and convenient for the Maldron, this is a friendly relaxed bistro.
We shared the caprese salad (which was a good idea because it was a big serving!), and then the sea bass and the pizza fiorentina- both...good. Naughtily we also had the limoncello sorbet (really very nice).
It’s a nice quiet unassuming bistro, low key but good food. I hope they survive and prosper: they deserve to.More
Dined in Sparks on a cold wet night.. warm friendly staff and very tasty food.Nothing was a problem .. changed some dishes to suit exact requirements..bruschetta & chicken pasta strongly recommended.Would definitely go back when next in Smithfield.
Myself and my boyfriend popped into Sparks for a quick bite to eat before carrying on exploring Dublin. We were staying in a hotel nearby and after a google search decided on Sparks.
I’m very glad we did we both had a wrap that comes...with a side of chips. Me chicken Caesar salad and my boyfriend chilli con carne. At first we thought it was pretty pricey(€9pp) for a wrap but we were shocked at the size of it... it was huge!!! And very yummy - definitely filled a whole.
The two wraps with two drinks came to €22.10.More
Located in the heart of Dublin at the old Jamieson Whiskey plant, this Italian bistro has a great menu. I elected to sit outside even if the temperature was dropping, (this explains the bluish light on the picture)There was already two other tables outside but...the waiter seemed surprised/overwhelmed by my request to get an outside table. I ended with a menu relatively fast but the initial order request took a little longer. For those who know me, I am short fused for this. Nevertheless, I went for the Lobster/Crab lasagna that was very good when it showed up. It took 3/4 of my glass of wine for this to happen. Sadly, no one realized I was about to run out of wine and no one offered a refill. Oh well. Saved 9 euros. Total cost of lasagna and a glass of wine: 19 euros. The meal was good but the service a little behind. I was offered garlic bread half way in my meal. Will I go back? Sure...More
Sparks is a fantastic restaurant in the heart of Smithfield. Daily specials are beautifully prepared and quality of food is always top class with staff that are super friendly and efficient with a lovely sense of humour and good banter.
