Welcome to Darwins

Darwins restaurant offers contemporary international cuisine with an extensive menu catering for ‘carnivorous, coeliac and vegetarian’ diners. We pride ourselves on our certified Irish Angus beef and local produce, our interesting and affordable wines and our committed and careful suppliers.

Since opening we have built a dedicated group of customers who rave about the culinary delights on offer. Our new 2016 menus are now online.

A family run business, the theme of the restaurant is based on Charles Darwins ‘origin of the species'and our murals cause quite a stir. They are a unique backdrop to a perfect meal out with friends or family.

Darwins own in house butchers supplies and sources all their certified Irish meats including Angus, game, poultry and genuine Dry aged beef. We have won numerous awards for our food, wine and service and the locals know we serve the best quality meat in Dublin. Discover Darwins for yourself.

Darwins is deservedly one of our favourite restaurants, and has just got bigger and better having expanded into the unit next door - Taste of Ireland 2015

I suspect that I'll remember the lamb dish that Marian had for a long time. I'd love to bring Italians here so they can taste how good lamb can be, as opposed to what passes for it in Italy. - Paolo Tullio, Irish Independent, 2014
