Next time I am in Dublin I will have to pay a visit after that review. thanks
Even if you don't go downstairs to sample a 'tipple' from the wonderful collection of wines or, go upstairs to dine - bistro style - sampling a homemade burger or a Dover sole, then just browse around on the ground floor and wallow in the atmosphere and the scent of fresh produce. Lovely, lovely place to visit when in Dublin.
If I had the money to eat here every night I would - thankfully the shop downstairs has affordable gourmet treats that can be picked-up at any time. I've only dined in the restaurant twice + each time was a feast for the senses. Will be treating my mother soon as I am sure that it will be just as good, if not better than the previous visits/ 10/10
Fallon & Byrne is a great specialty grocery store worth checking out! The produce alone is worth the trip. Though expensive, it's a great place to find those hard-to-find items. The deli is also fantastic. It's often crowded, but they have a nice grab-and-go section if you don't have time to wait in line. It's a great source for American expats as they have many "home comforts" you can't find elsewhere in Dublin.
Excellent deli for both shopping and eating. Good fruit n veg range and typical artisnal deli selection. Downstairs is a good wine bar which works for lunch and dinner. Simple consistent menu that works with decent wine list and service. Good badement setting and layout too - nice buzz without being on top of everyone else.

When most people dream of winning the lotto they are imaganing deluxe holidays, sleek cars and rolexes, I imagine being able to do my weekly shop in Fallon and Byrne. Even if you cannot afford to buy anything practical here, it’s a great place to browse. There is a fantastic selection of confectionary and speciality chocolate to ooh and aah over. Take a seat in the cafe and enjoy coffee and balsamic vinegar truffles while you watch the world go by from your ivory tower.
I love this place. Fallon & Byrne is a posh grocery’s down stairs and beautiful restaurant upstairs also. The food available in the grocery’s is incredible and a real treat. A bit expensive but extroadinarily healthy and tasty. A good place to find something new. Great fresh vegatables.
Eating in the Restaurant upstairs is also a real treat. The service is perfect. The waiting staff actually do wait on the customers. You dont find yourself gaping about looking for some one for a glass a water, or reaching out to fill everybody’s and your wine glass yourself. Every move is professionally anticipated with grace and class and the evening flows smoothly. You feel relaxed and like royalty. And of course the food is top class. To be very much enjoyed with special people on a special occasion. Once seated at this restaurant you are offered a glass of champagne. Well I was anyway, and my pals too. Its a pleasant entrance. The setting is class, non-intrusive and simple.
I love all the fresh produce here. All the proper wicker baskets with fresh vegetables- it’s all classy and makes you feel like your buying something worth the cost. The grocery section is always busy, but it is still worth taking your time looking at all the great imported foods.
This is one of my favourite restaurants in Dublin. You can enjoy great food in a really relaxing atmosphere. The staff are friendly and the service is great. In addition to enjoying a great meal you can wander downstairs and grab something for the road in their organic market, whether its a tasty smoothie or some healthy crackers!Perfect for some casual Sunday lunch.
My work had a Christmas dinner here on the upper floor. It was fancy and wonderful. Walking in from the street I felt transported to New York as the deli buzzed and is visually gorgeous. My party had a drink down stairs also which was humming with activity, more relaxed than the upper restaurant but still sophisticated. The upper floor was beautiful, it would be the most excellent venue for a romantic dinner and possibly a proposal? Hint, hint. The food was above and beyond and the service impeccable! A detour from the loos led me to a room decked out for a large Christmas party and it looked worth every cent; I’ll remember to suggest that one for next year. A very classy place.
Ooh this place really excites me! When I go in and see all of the gourmet deli foods my mouth waters! I havnt been to eat in there, but I have gotten groceries and some of the homemade raviloi, cheeses and sauces and they have always been fantastic! The meatballs are amazing too! Whenever I want to treat my boyfriend, or really myself, I load myself with all of their posh foods (which I can never pronounce but can definetly eat!) and cook up a storm at home. They definetly have a very unique twist on an average deli, and really it is definetly an experience!
Fallon and Byrne is a reasonably new addition to the Dublin grocery store list and despite the New York-esque high ceilings and posh foods the best part of F&B is the downstairs wine bar. Every night of the week you can enjoy a variety of wines (great French section for example) accompanied with dishes such as patée (best in town?, cured meats, cheeses etc. But wait, there’s more: if you don’t want to choose wines from the menu, you can pick anything from the shelves, for a hefty corkage price. Not on Mondays though which is the day to go: corkage is only €1 per bottle so you can have wines you couldn’t normally afford!
Initially, I thought this was a large supermarket, but on closer inspection is was a “super deli” with things of surprising origin and content! Specialist products from all corners of the world and from the locale. An incredible selection of mushrooms, wonderful cheeses and amazing fish! Upstairs is a classy restaurant, which I couldn’t wait to try! I had Wild barramundi ravioli, bok choi, tomato & ginger broth (€12.50) to start followed by Confit pork belly & langoustines, roast baby potatoes & salsify, lemon & rocket dressing (€26.00) both were delicious! As usual, I had a very nice red wine to go with it. I spent most time in the deli below though, and had I been in self catering, that would have been my 1st choice of stockist.
