We were devastated not to be able to go to the Abba Tribute as it was sold out - we've learned you have to book early. First time in the Purty Kitchen. Great atmosphere and location. I'm a vegetarian and there weren't too many choices...More

Myself, husband, sister and brother attended the George Michael show only on Friday 19 Jan and has a great night. He sang loads of the hits and was great. We danced and sang the night away. Will definitely be back!

Good service/average food. Seems to be a common theme in south Dublin unless you want to spend €50 a head. Burgers were unseasoned which was disappointing because the minced beef was fresh. Likely give the cabaret a go next time as they host some good...More

I wouldn't call it pub food as it would be a massive under statement. It's very good, with great flavours and perfectly portions. The calamari was perfect lying cooked, the haddock was so taste and very meaty (for fish, you'll get what I mean). Service...More

WINNER OF DUBLIN'S BEST GASTRO PUB 2013 - IRISH RESTAURANT AWARDSThe Purty Kitchen re-opened it's doors under new ownership in October of 2012. The Purty Kitchen is south Dublin’s newest gastropub serving a wide variety of fresh fish and pub classics with flair. Every dish has been created to show off seasonal food at it’s best and we have used Irish produce wherever possible.We have tried to put a signature twist on all of our food. Take our burger for example. They are made in house with dry aged Irish beef from Kettyle meats. The cheese comes from 5 mile town creamery and then it’s all served on a Waterford blaa with a basket of skin-on rooster chips. Most of what we serve in the Purty Kitchen is made in the Purty Kitchen. Where there are exceptions to that, we have sourced things from other great Irish food producers like Boulaban Farm in Tipperary for our salted caramel ice cream, or Arbutus Bakery in Cork for delicious sourdough rye bread.
