Dublin

DAX

You can't get much better than Dublin's Best Restaurant 2019, with the double whammy of having Ireland's Best Chef 2019 cook your dinner. Olivier Meisonnave's atmospheric Georgian basement on Upper Pembroke Street, with Graham Neville at the stove, is a true jewel. Sophisticated and elegant, it's a favourite of big hitters who love its understated charm. Its Valentine's five-course menu at €79 includes a glass of the superb Champagne Delamotte.
