Nirvana Restaurant, Wine Bar & Cafe

A chic reception area, with soft seating and a smart designer bar where guests can relax both before and after dinner, sets the tone at Simon and Nicola Nightingale's stylish restaurant - which is off the beaten track, on the Mall.


Open since 2007, and taken over by the present owners in 2009, Nirvana filled a niche in the local market by offering a variety of quality food in very pleasant surroundings.


It's a popular lunchtime spot and casual daytime food includes light meals, such as good soup with homebaked bread or a very tasty and well garnished club sandwich, as well as a range of hot dishes. Desserts are traditional (with a selection of Irish cheeses also offered in the evening), and a good children's menu is offered.


Helpful staff are efficient and friendly and, while the wine list is not long, it suits the food well and includes a fair number of choices under €20 .


Evening meals are available from 6pm and a comprehensive à la carte menu is offered; covering all bases, it offers everything from a good steak to world cuisine and the contemporary dining area helps provide a very pleasant ambience in which to enjoy Simon Nightingale's good cooking. 


With pleasing surroundings, a wide range of food to suit varying occasions, friendly service, and good value, it is not surprising that this place has proved such a success.

Seats 70. L & D daily, 11.30-6pm (from 12 Sun) and 6-9.30pm (to 9pm Sun). Sun L €19.95. Early bird D €18.95 Mon-Thu 5.30-7pm; D a la carte; house wine €16.50. free broadband wi/fi; children welcome; toilets wheelchair accessible. abbreviations
