August 2015, Our lunch Being under way in the city of Dublin, Ireland we were hungry and decided spontaneously to go to Marco Pierre White Steakhouse & Grill on Dawson Street. Dawson Street is near Trinity College and just off Grafton Street. We were arriving at a time when it was quiet, so getting a table without reservation wasn’t a problem, but we had to vacate it within 2 hours. The restaurant is beautifully designed with monochrome colors in black and white, classic chandeliers, a huge flower arrangement and lots of photographs. Guests can also sit outside. We were brought to our table inside and given the a la carte and value menu and the wine list. The value menu was attractively priced. A one course cost 16.95 Euro (ca. 19.10 USD), a two course is 21.95 Euro (ca. 24.70 USD) and a three course 26.95 Euro, ca. 35.35 USD. After some discussion we ordered a large bottle of still Irish water. He had the three course, while I chose the 2 course menu. Before our appetizers arrived we received a bread basket and butter. He started with Bayonne Ham and melon, while I had the Caprese Salad. The melon was juicy and the ham delicious. The tomato – some of them were rarer like Baby Plum Tomatoes and Grape Tomatoes -, basil and mozzarella combination worked well. His main course was Chicken Milanese, served with chips and a rocket / parmesan salad. My grilled Sea Bass came with a large mixed salad and samphire. We shared his dessert, a Valhrona chocolate and peanut butter cake with ice cream and biscuit crumbs. The only criticism would be about the crumbs. They didn’t necessarily enhance the dessert and could be left out. The thought behind it could have been, though, to add more texture or a decoration. Otherwise the cake and ice cream were decadent and moreish. The whole meal was very enjoyable. He had also a Chateaux Jolys dessert wine to round up the late lunch. He liked it and described part of the notes as apricot or peach and the wine as very light and refreshing. The bill came in at 58.65 Euro (ca. 66 USD). The staff was friendly and attentive. We would return again based on the good experience. Would we recommend this restaurant to a friend? YES! Would we visit again this restaurant for lunch/dinner in our future? YES! Thank you and safe travels.
