Excellent local restaurant. Top quality produce. Great taste and flavour in the food served. Good wine choice at decent prices. Really good staff. Chefs work in an open kitchen so you can see how hard they work for their customers.

We had a fabulous dinner last night. We were impressed with both the creativity of the menu as well as the quality (delicious!). And they’ve also created some fun and special cocktails (spicy Watermelon Margarita- yum!). We’ll be back soon!!

About the restaurant
1900 serves modern Irish cuisine and which offers a selection of traditional dishes with a modern twist. The restaurant is located on Harcourt street in Dublin's south city centre. All steaks served have been aged for a minimum of 28 days, this could very well be a deciding factor for steaks lovers.

About the restaurant
Voted gastropub of the year in our biggest Food Award,Our much beloved gastropub tradition is still being honoured with the signature pickles, homemade crisps and treacle tarts. Here, you'll find the likes of PX- braised ox cheek, bone marrow sauce, pickled scapes, fine beans, & toasted almond or chorizo, cider-braised onions, and roasted garlic. Most especially, post-pandemic, the joy of feasting with friends, missed so viscerally, takes pride of place with a Feasting Menu featuring roasted lamb, whole fish, wood-fired chicken and a cornucopia of sharing courses such as roasted gambas with chilli & garlic, black kale with pine nuts and anchovy, and, to finish, a whole cheesecake.
Our bar makes pies pies pies...think Meat and cheese, steak and even coddle pie.
We are delighted to be honouring our own traditional lexicon of producerscraft beers on tap, over 200 wines on a stellar list written with love and a small but considered and decidedly timeless classic cocktail list

About the restaurant
The Winding Stair Bookshop & Café became a famous Dublin landmark in the 1970s and 1980s. Named after the Yeats poem and in honour of its winding staircase, it is overlooking the river Liffey, with an iconic view of the Ha'penny bridge. As a popular meeting place for writers, musicians and artists, it was a well known hub for debate and creativity with many poems written, novels penned and movies shot within its walls. In 2006, Elaine Murphy brought this much-loved spot back to life as a restaurant, championing seasonal, Irish produce. The bookshop, located on the ground floor, was retained, as were many of the old bookshelves, photos and memories. The room retains its timeless charm with stripped wood tables and floors, and Bentwood café chairs.The view remains as quintessentially Dublin as ever.
The food is good, old-fashioned home cooking, with produce sourced from artisans within the island. Drink sare local and international craft beers & wines from stellar producers.

Always reliable. The winding stair food is fantastic, service is attentive but unobtrusive and atmosphere is engaging. Always enjoy dining here and no complaints this time either.
