The Restaurant at The Fitzwilliam
This hotel has quite a name for itself not least because of the quality of the local food and drink in the restaurant. Having recently been awarded AA 5-star status and an AA rosette for culinary excellence, situated on Gt. Victoria Street and right beside the Grand Opera House, this is the place to be!
Menus under Head Chef Dean Butler change seasonally. He has great relationships with local suppliers such as Hannan Meats, Keenan’s Seafood, Wilson’s Potatoes, Draynes Farm and French Village. The artisan breads on offer are all baked in house!
Contemporary meets classic in both the décor and in the sophisticated casual dining at the Restaurant. The lighting is pretty special and we love that you can sit at tables or booths.
An A La Carte starter might be Celery Panna Cotta, Cashel Blue Ice Cream, Toasted Walnut Bread, Baby Celery and Apple Salad followed by 10oz Pan Roasted Hannan’s Salt Dry Aged Sirloin, Crispy Beef Cheek, Hollandaise, Caramelized Onion Puree, Bone Marrow Crumb, Sweet Potato Fries and maybe a sweet of Peach Tatin, Homemade Apricot and Basil Sorbet.
As well as A La Carte dining, they run a fantastic pre-theatre menu, with 5-star food at prices you can swallow.
The wine pairings are exquisite. There is Afternoon Tea and Private Dining too.
Don’t think you have to stay to eat here. Trust us, this is a destination restaurant!
