Unicorn Restaurant

"New chef, new menu, new management, old Unicorn" is the mantra at this much loved restaurant, which now has distinguished Euro-Toques chef Lorcan Cribbin (formerly at Bang around the corner on Merrion Row) at the helm.


In a lovely, secluded location just off a busy street near St. Stephen's Green, this informal and perennially fashionable Dublin restaurants famous for its antipasto bar and exceptionally friendly staff.


New menus have been developed but regular diners will be pleased to know that care has been taken to retain the favourites, such as traditional penne arrabiata and 'secret recipe' homemade gnocchi  - and the best of Irish ingredients are used (suppliers are listed).


The Unicorn is always delightful but it is particularly charming in summer, as the doors open out onto a terrace which is used for al fresco dining in fine weather.
