Named one of the top 10 places to dine at in Ireland. It's busy and lively and certainly meets up to expectations with a full-crowd almost everynight. The cuisine - Modern European.
Favorite Dish: The menu changes periodically and they have specials which are not on the menu. This will be a great choice for food if you are into an atmospheric night out in the Temple Bar area. Fitzers can also be found in Dawson Street and the National Gallery.
We went to the temple bar one and though the menu was not short I wouldn't say it was vaste. We were two people and ordered, two glasses of beer, an starter to share, then both of us fish and chips (which was quite good) and then a piece of cake to share as dessert. We paid 60 € which seems to me quite expensive for what we got. Waiters are friendly and the restaurant is nice though.
Located right in the middle of Temple Bar, good views from the Restaurant if you like people watching. Fitzers also have a restaurant in Dawson street, the menu has lots more to offer. The other location is in The National Gallery in Merrion square which you can eat a main course from 10 Euro.
Favorite Dish: Good selection of starters iwth Buffalo mozzarella, Smoked Irish salmon, wild mushrooms, and Tiger Prawns, all from around 7 to 9 Euro. For the main couse you have a choice of Beef Fillet, Sirloin Streak, Pork cutlets, or Marinated Chicken from 18 to 25 Euro. You can also order Burgers from 14 Euro, plenty of salads on offer from 13 Euro and if you just fancy an sandwich you can order chorizo or chicken up until 5pm. Also on the menu is a selection of Pasta.
There are 2 Fitzer's and both have totally different personalities. One is very contemparary and hip located in Temple Bar. The other is in the old Georgian part of the city and has a more traditional feel. Both have excellent food. Enjoy.
There are two Fitzers restaurants in Dublin and I've been to both, though the one in Temple Bar was most recent and it was crap. OK it was a Bank Holiday Monday evening so it would generally be quiet but my lamb shank was overdone and a little dry and the medium-rare fillet steak came out somewhere past medium and was sent back. And the attitude of the staff wasn't perfect either, nothing too bad but when you get the order wrong then there should be a few more apologies than this.
So the lesson is to go to the Fitzers on Dawson St, not the Temple Bar one because at least the standard is better.
The wine list is over priced as well.
Fitzers at O Connolstreet, near Parnell street
is noisy at the entrance area and at the 1st floor where are a lot of tv screens and people can watch their soccer or rugby game (at the entrance the weekly schedule is written down). There is a corner where guests can have their dinner in a more quiet atmosphere. Fitzers is awarded for the best Pub food in 2000. There is a menu. 50 euro for 2 persons, for which you get a bottle of wine (we asked for Australian Chardonnay Jacobs Creek, normally 16,50 euro). First cousre is soup or Ceasar salat, but we choose chicken guegnons, with salad and Thai sauce. Second course is rice with garlic/gember chicken (delicious), cod with mashed patatoes or beef. The 3th course is cheese- or chocolate cake with ice and the
4 th course is coffee ore thee.
Favorite Dish: The food is reasonable good.
But the most important thing is the price/quality balance. 50 euro for two minus 16,50 euro (wine) = 33,50 euro. So 16.75 euro each for a 4 course dinner in the evening and this is, when you give it
a quality score of 7 or 7,5, superb for Dublin standards.
Sometimes it is too busy, one evening there were two bachelor parties.
Food in fitzers in Temple Bar is great. I worked there so i should know! Its not cheap, but not much in that area is!! The pasta servings are massive, and the salads are excellent. Save room for the Baileys Creme Brulee!!!
Favorite Dish: Linguini with prawns, smoked chicken in a cream and parmesan sauce.
