This restaurant is a gem. From the greeting at the door by Mattias to making choices - wine & food it was a pleasurable experience. the wine list offered a wide range at fair prices. The food was really delicious, beautifully presented, great flavours and excellent value. The atmosphere in the restaurant was enhanced by a team who really look... More

This is my first review ever. And I had to give only the highest praise for the team at 1909 Restraunt in Dalkey. First if in Dublin make the short trip by taxi or train to Dalkey and make sure you stay for an evening to go to 1909. We had a group of family with parents to young children.... More

The 1909 Restaurant and Wine Bar is on Castle Street in Dalkey, a lovely quiet village in South Dublin and is housed in what used to be the Dalkey Dispensary which itself dated back to 1909. The restaurant is a must if you are in the Dalkey or Dun Laoghaire area. We were there for a birthday lunch and ate... More

Situated in the lovely vllage of Daulkey just outside of Dublin, this quaint restaurant has a very distinct character. As you walk in your a greeted by a wall of wines and various vintage cooking utensils on the walls. It's a mix of classic dishes with modern flavours. I loved how the main dishes are served in silver domed plate... More

I was treating my Mother in law to a special dinner and what a superb evening it was. When you enter you are seated , in the background you hear Jazz being played on the Grand Piano. The waiters could not be more helpful and professional. We both ordered the Trio of Wicklow Lamb, it`s absolutely superb. Our cheese platter... More

Recommended by local hosts and so we came and had a lovely dinner here with friends and could not fault the place - great service and food. Came out full and satisfied. We were upstairs and loos are down the back and then downstairs, so best to ask for a ground floor table if you are not good with stairs!

Enjoyable night here with my husband on a Friday..Both of us enjoyed but there was a lack of atmosphere...probably as we were upstairs, downstairs definitely more happening and where music is. We each ate the same, stuffed Yorkshire pudding (delicious) and chicken... The service was excellent and the staff can't do enough for you. No doubt we will be back,... More

Five of us visited 1909 on a Saturday night and it was busy. Which is a good sign. Our table wasn’t ready so were perched by the coats, which was helpfully in everyone’s way. We weren’t offered a drink, but they were busy. The décor’s pretty old fashioned but in a nice kind of way. It's cosy with nice lighting.... More

Just before Christmas, we made a booking for 24 friends for a special lunch celebration. This Restaurant has a lovely area upstairs for these numbers who want to be together in one area. As it turned out, the team at 1909 Restaurant did a really great job. Both the food and service were excellent but most of all, the friendly... More
