The Vintage Kitchen

Sister restaurant to Portobello’s popular Seagrass, The Vintage Kitchen follows the same appealing MO of great cooking, superb value and a no-corkage BYO policy. Short menus brim with the best of Irish ingredients and, despite the casual setting, there’s some seriously stylish cooking going on.


Dinner menus cost €25 for 2 course and €30 for 3 (bring your own wine and you’ll have a very cheap night out) and comprise five tempting choices per course. Seafood treats might include a flavour-packed Kilkee crab and chilli risotto or grilled Kilmore Quay hake with Roaring Bay rope mussels in a Cajun broth.


Meat fans will appreciate choices like slow roasted Slaney River lamb or perhaps pan roasted duck breast with lemon and chorizo orzo. Vegetarian dishes are equally imaginative.


Little shelves hold vintage bric a brac like ornaments and candleholders while tunes from Burt Bacharach, Bowie and The Housemartins fill the air with retro notes. Guests are welcome to bring their own vinyl too, and should it suit the laidback vibe, the friendly staff will be happy to spin some tracks. Admittedly the small space is noisy when full, so, if bigger groups are in, the tunes can seem a little drowned out.


A red and white wine are available, but most diners seem to bring their own. The seriously good cooking, fair prices and BYO policy guarantee the rise of this fresh and funky Dublin addition.
