Description: DeVille's is located on the main street in the old heritage town of Dalkey. Born out of a love of food and the ceremony of dining out, its joint owners brother and sister Kim and David O'Driscoll serve moderately priced, traditional bistro fare seven nights a week with brunch/lunch on Fridays and the weekend. Serving predominantly French wines from a carefully selected wine list, draft beers and an extensive range of spirits & house cocktails there is something for everybody at DeVille's.

Recently my friend and I went to DeVilles for dinner, booked a table for 5 pm with the request from the restaurant we be off the table at 6.45, not a problem so far. At 6.15 the waitress asked would we take our desert at the bar and vacate the table early, we politely said no as we are in our mid 70's and don’t do bar stools in case we fall off (not drink associated). A few moments later another staff member (maybe the manager) came over and asked us to do the same, we again declined. (BTW, there were empty tables around us). We got a shocked and a very disappointed look from him like we were being unreasonable….. DeVille's, why take reservations, make us aware of the time you need the table back by and then try to move us off 30 minutes earlier. That is one way to frustrate happy loyal customers. We are regulars and now may not be any more…. Such a pity.

The kind of elegant brasseries I love, but with in quite a chill atmosphere. The staff was very professional and provided great advice on what drinks to have. The oysters we had were delicious, I was however a bit underwhelmed by the Deville's eggs. Good wine, good Bellini. A place I do cherish.

I'm not one for writing reviews, but I felt compelled to state what a wonderful meal/evening we had in this restaurant.
We had heard so much about it over the past year, however it was first time venturing in!

The food was magnificent and the service was just fantastic.
The place was packed to the rafters, however this did not hinder the service we received.
Our waitress Emily was extremely pleasant and very attentive.

After being expertly guided through the numerous specials on offer, we decided to go with the pork belly and the duck breast accompanied by skinny fries, followed by two banoffees.
The portions were plentiful, yet that didn't stop us polishing off the desserts :x!

A great night, and we will most certainly be re-visiting in the near future.
