Salamanca

The concept of tapas was new to Dublin when this atmospheric, informal bar and Spanish restaurant in the heart of Dublin some years ago, and it immediately struck a chord with Dubliners.


This Dublin restaurants entrance is pleasant - past a bar with flowers on the counter - and welcoming staff show you straight to a simple marble-topped table.


The menu - which is in Spanish with English explanations - is flexible enough to suit anything from a light lunch to a full dinner and plenty of choices: three tapas plates will make a generous lunch for two.


Spanish staples are generally well-handled: langoustines with serrano ham, squid in chilli butter and patatas bravas are all tasty and presentation is simple and traditional - and the pimentos rellenos (peppers stuffed with spiced minced lamb) are particularly enjoyable.


A handy location, tasty food, delightful staff and good value make this place busy at peak times, so be prepared to wait.


The wine list includes a range of sherries by the glass, the traditional accompaniment for tapas, and there are a few excellent wines in the “premium” section of the wine list (€30 plus), look out for a wonderful Albarino.


And, should you need a quick pick-me-up, their lovely frothy-topped mocha served in a tall glass is a great reviver.
