We offer fresh, authentic, rustic Palestinian & Middle Eastern food with a hint of the Mediterranean. Pomegranate, sumac, almonds, za’atar, mint, lemons, figs, pine nuts all add to the smell of real Palestinian food, that you can enjoy in our eclectic restaurant. The décor is based on a Bedouin tent merged with pieces from “one thousand and one nights” (and no we do not have a flying carpet).
As always the most homely, authentic and hospitable place to dine out! Food is excellent!
This was my second visit to Shakshuka and it was as enjoyable as the first. The waitstaff were charming and helpful, the ambience is great, and the choice of dishes is good, allowing for all tastes (1 vegetarian, 1 pescatarian and 3 omnivores). All in all I'd recommend it.
Second visit to this lovely little restaurant - food great, service fast and friendly, good value, love BYOB (small corkage fee) - only complaint was that the place was rather chilly on a wintry evening....
Great food well worth a visit. Delicious homemade Baklava...
It was very cold. Kept having to close the door and sat beside the window and had to keep coat on
Great little restaurant, with nice authentic food, nice ambiance and good service.
Wonderful Palestinian and Middle Eastern food, maybe the best in Dublin! Always love to come here. Great menu and friendly staff.
We are regulars at Shakshuka over the years and really like the food. This time we noticed however that the menu has changed and the prices have gone up quite a bit. Also the old menu with the old prices is still displayed in the window, or at least it was when we were there last. It was a bit chilly but the guy said they were installing new heaters. The food is lovely as is the service however.
Excellent experience great value
Super local favourite with tasty healthy Palestinian food served by lovely staff - very reasonably priced and byob with low corkage!
Good service, food was tasty and seemed all freshly made and using good quality ingredients. Good service. Slightly cramped seating, found it a bit on cold side but it was a cold night.
Great food. attentive but inobtrusive waiter. Glad it was a quiet night cos its quite a small place. Lovely evening and great value.
Great food in a fun, lively atmosphere - will go back again and again!
Lovely place and great food
A great meal as always. A lovely selection of mezze and equally tasty main courses. We always order too much but it makes lunch time something to really look forward to the next day. Brilliant staff and gorgeous decor make Shakshuka one of our favourite places to go for a never-fail casual dinner. Just fabulous.
Brilliant ambience. Always love the experience here :)
Lovely relaxed atmosphere, tasty and authentic food at very reasonable prices.
This restaurant used to be exceptional when it was still 'Little Jerusalem' (under previous ownership?).
Unfortunately the quality of the food has deteriorated while prices have gone up considerably. Set menues are overpriced. All plates now dominated by a hug pile of rice and rather little of the actual dish. Presentation of food is poor. Would not go again
Very nice good. Falafel was a bit dry and have had nicer hallomi but everything else was very tasty. Service was very good
We had such a good time here. I had rad mixed reviews & I was a bit nervous. The food was AMAZING. We went for halloumi salad to start and lamb koftas for main. Delicious. Even the salads were great. And its byo so great value. Staff were lovely too despite being run off their feet. Totally recommend!
We had a lovely meal, very pleasant service and good food, most enjoyable, looking forward to the next occasion.
We’ve been many times as we love the food, but a small criticism this time is that we just wanted Mezze. You have to order a minimum of eight dishes, which actually means ELEVEN plates arriving at once. Totally unworkable on a small table and too much food for two people. You live and learn.
The food was outstanding. We went in there for the first time as we were in Dublin for a few days and we were pleasently surprised! The staff was really nice and very friendly. The price of the food was an outstanding for the amount of food that we were given! I can't wait to go back to Dublin just to try out another dish from their menu! 5 out of 5!
Lovely night at this restaurant. Food was delicious and service faultless. BYOB is always an added bonus. Very cosy and lovely atmosphere. Would recommend.
Booked for a party of 4 for 18/8/18 @ 19:30. While there was a mixup with my online booking and our booking was rescheduled it was so worth the wait. The food and service could only be described as superb.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant for Palestinian/Lebanese cuisine and I would seriously recommend everyone try it as I'm relatively new to this cuisine but it's now my favourite. Shakshuka is an absolute gem.
Good overall except that despite getting a confirmation email from Open table the restaurant did not know I was coming or had a reservation! Took a while to sort out but that was the only complaint I would have.
Fabulous. Best Middle Eastern food I've had outside Lebanon
Excellent food, excellent service, reasonable prices for the context. A bit limited space but that's also character. Overall a great experience!
After previous visit suggested we met friends in this restaurant. We had really enjoyed our previous meal. On this occasion food was not as good. Salads looked a bit jaded. Portions small and overall a disappointment. Perhaps the chef had a night off but after recommending it to our friends we were disappointed.
I lived in Palestine and Syria, and miss the Middle East, so it’s lovely to experience the warm welcome and delicious food of the region In this restaurant.
Very impressed with food, staff and location. Definitely will be going there shortly.
A fine little restaurant with perfectly presented dishes.
Absolutely amazing food here at Shakshuka. Couldn’t recommend it enough and can’t wait to go back!
Shakshuka is a lovely place in Rathmines, the waiter was very friendly and attentive. The food was absolutely delicious. We will be back.
Very fine Palestinian dishes, great knafeh. Perfect service, very kind owners.
This was our second visit and it’s already become a favourite. We lived in the Middle East for two years and miss it, so the food and warm welcome here takes us back those happy days. An authentic experience.
This was my second time to dine at this restaurant. I brought 6 friends with me this time. Every one of us were in agreement with this review. - Wonderful food. Full of fantastic flavours. Lovely friendly atmosphere and extremely good value for money. Looking forward to returning very soon.
Delicious food, byo and staff were friendly. We really enjoyed our meal
Lovely food, great value (and it's BYOB) and staff were really nice.
Very nice cosy place, staff more than welcoming and helpful.the food was super nice..recommended to friends already and definitely going back.
