Darwins Restaurant is one of Dublins best known steak restaurants, in fact to be totally honest the steak are “to die for”, and they can proudly keep their claim to fame.
A little bit of history about Darwins, they have been open for 6 years which in this day and age is a remarkably good length of time. Interestingly the restaurant is named after Charles Darwin the naturalist who put forward the notion of evoloution (“The Origin of Species”).
Darwins is not only well known for its friendly and relaxed atmosphere but also for the excellent range and standard of food. Naturally they pride themselves on their excellent quality of steak which is sourced from their “in house” butcher. For the steak lovers you can be assured that all the meat is Irish, which comes from the Boyne Valley. The steaks are succulent, soft and so so flavoursome!! The chefs do a fantastic job of ensuring that all steaks are cooked to everybodies liking no matter how you like it!!
Darwins also cater for the seafood lovers and naturally vegetarians as well. Possibly their signature vegetarian dish is the Honey, Lime, Sesami and Tofu steak so not only can the meat eaters enjoy a steak but so too can the vegetarains, nobody is left out there!!
For the sweet tooths there is a large selection of deserts from light enoyable sorbet’s to a rich warm chocolate brownie with chocolate raspberry and creamy bourbon vanilla ice cream, in my oppinion a “must have” if your going to go down the desert road.
For the wine list Darwins have a range of wines from all around the world, the Italian wines include a rich and fruity Nero d’Avola by Tola. The house white is a light and crsip Bianco Sicillia and of course my favouite which is the San Vincenzo by Anselmi which is a medium bodied elegant and full flavoured white from Veneto.
