Isabels

Restaurants have come and gone from this little basement spot on Baggot Street, which is now home to a chic and cosy wine bar.


Isabel’s, named after the proprietors’ daughter, is beautifully tricked out, the walls of exposed brick and old stone making an atmospheric palette for old wine boxes and dozens of bottles. Pistachio green banquettes and glossy tables are comfy and smart, and the dozens of flickering lights create an intimate and romantic space.


This Dublin Restaurants daytime and night time menus are similarly pitched, with unusual ‘gourmet’ sandwiches, replacing grazing or starter courses by day. Creative salads – perhaps crab with pea mousse, wasabi flying fish roe, green tea and basil salt – charcuterie boards and a few brasserie-style main courses – think confit of duck leg with duck croquette, carrot mousse and braised red cabbage – complete the brief but imaginative offerings.


Food is beautifully presented, and the short menu includes plenty of seasonal produce. Two desserts feature daily, with cinnamon-sprinkled Spanish churros served with molten chocolate a worthy house speciality.


Wine plays a key role in Isabel’s appeal, whether it’s a bottle of something rare and stellar, or one of 18 interesting wines by the glass. Isabel’s Facebook page is updated regularly with specials, like unique tastings or good value cheeseboard and bottle of wine deals. The truly exciting wine list offers real appeal and Isabel’s owners will passionately offer advice on what to try.


Service is warm and welcoming throughout making this a great spot for a romantic dinner, discreet business lunch or night out with friends.
