Went here yesterday for Sunday lunch. Had to ask twice for a drink when we went in, waited ages to order. When the food came it wasn't great. Salmon croquette were horrible, the soup was to sweet. The mains weren't much better. The burger was very earthy, tasted more like black pudding than beef. Very slow at serving drink and... More

A number of years ago, apparently the last of service under the previous management, I had a disastrous meal. It took a while for me to go back, but I'm so glad I did! I've had a hard time finding Chicken wings served with Ranch dressing anywhere in South Dublin, and theirs is perfect. I had them last Tuesday for... More

Visited on 29th - menu was a bit chaotic and waitress unsure exactly what was available. When meals did arrive, were nicely cooked and presented but an error in one of the salad dishes. Fish and chips was decent, although could have been a more generous piece of haddock. Burger was over cooked. Desserts were superb, particularly the raspberry creme... More

Lovely decor, friendly staff, good food. It was the last working day before Christmas so it was quite busy with lunches but food came out timely and was hot. Menu was extensive. Food was probably a little expensive for lunch but probably within reason for the area.

I ordered the calamari starter and the pork belly for mains. My partner ordered the salmon croquettes for starter and a steak for mains. We ordered a 3... More

We were passing through monkstown and we discovered this hidden gem. very friendly service. Food is top class. couldn't fault it. Desserts and drinks were brilliant. Was a little pricey but you pay for what you get. Will definitely return.

It's a pleasant place to relax,have a drink with friends,even have a nice dinner.I had pork belly with some pumpkin wedges on Halloween evening ,very tasty. Also they have a back terrace covered and heated. The staff is friendly,but the thing which l didn't like is that they're not cleaning the tables outside,very sticky... I would definitely comeback.

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.
