Really enjoyed our meal. Great selection and options. Food came quickly and with good portion sizes. Prices overall for Dublin City centre seemed really reasonable. Atmosphere in the restaurant was great, which added to the service and food quality.More

Cannot get enough of this place. Tapas is delicious. The gambas with garlic & chilli & tempura style prawns are some of my favourites. The trio of mini sliders are also delicious! Expect to wait at peak times,

Located at 64A South William Street this beautiful and solely candle lit wine cavern has been stripped back to its original features.

The Port House wine menu is varied and full of interesting wines, ports and sherries at a very reasonable price, carefully selected from Spanish and Portuguese regions. It is the ideal place for one to relax, enjoy some tapas with a glass of wine and soak up the ambiance that makes this spot a must try.
