The Blackboard Bistro is a bijou French restaurant in Dublin’s historic Georgian Quarter right on the edge of picturesque Merrion Square. Considered to be one of the very best French restaurants in Dublin serving honest, rustic French cuisine. The National Gallery of Ireland is located opposite the restaurant and the American College, the old home of Oscar Wilde, is a few yards along the road. Trinity College’s Lincoln Green gate is just around the corner from the restaurant and their close proximity to the Mont Clare, Davenport, Alexander and Merrion Hotel’s makes it a great location for dining out on a city visit. The Blackboard Bistro serves lunch Tuesday to Friday and Dinner Tuesday to Saturday.
The Blackboard Bistro understands the simple art of a Risotto and a starter of leek & bacon risotto with fresh oregano, lemon zest and creme fraiche proves this point beautifully with all the flavours balanced, expressive and just right. Everything else that comes from the Kitchen is just as precise! – Mc Kenna Guide Best Irish Restaurants 2013
