37 Dawson Street can be found located on - you guessed it - Dawson Street in Dublin’s city centre. This restaurant was quite a find and the interiors are nothing short of remarkable, with an abundance of taxidermy and bright theatrical lighting creating a wonderfully intriguing setting in which to enjoy your dining experience. Being more geared up for drinkers, 37 Dawson Street is more of a bar than a restaurant and on certain nights of the week the bar area is filled with party goers, however this creates a fun and buzzy atmosphere in which to dine, and we certainly enjoyed it.

When we arrived, we made ourselves comfortable at our table and enjoyed a pre-dinner cocktail. I chose a classic Espresso Martini which did not disappoint, and my partner chose a Negroni mixed with one part gin, one part vermouth rosso, and one part Campari, garnished with orange peel. We were impressed with our cocktails; they were clearly expertly crafted.

To begin our meal, I ordered the pancetta wrapped chicken skewers to start, which were perfectly cooked and deliciously tasty. My partner chose the beef and chorizo meatballs which were served with rustic bread. The meatballs were tender and flavoursome and left us both in great anticipation for what was to follow.

“Both the food and service failed to disappoint.”

For our main courses, my partner opted for the Mexican quesadillas which saw tortilla wraps filled and baked with grated mozzarella, salsa and Cajun chicken. These came served with sweet potato fries as well as guacamole and sour cream dips. I also chose the quesadillas but chose to have the sautéed vegetables filling instead which really was a great choice. The flavours were truly beautiful. We also shared a side of patatas bravas with aioli alongside our sweet potato fries.

To accompany our meal, we shared a bottle of the 2014, Tenuta Sant'Antonio Nanfrè Valpolicella Superiore, Italy, which was full bodied and full of delicious red fruit flavours and pepper spices. It was the perfect addition to our evening.

We were impressed with our visit to 37 Dawson Street, both the food and service failed to disappoint. We enjoyed the busy and fun atmosphere, being set amongst everyone enjoying themselves. It’s always a good sign to see a place as popular as this was. We cannot wait to return and can certainly recommend this restaurant and bar to anyone visiting Dublin.
