grafton street restaurants

In Dublin right now - any suggestions for a restaurant/pub on Grafton - sounds like Temple Bar is not the place to go....

If you want somewhere relaxed, but not really that Irish, I recommend the restaurant on the top floor of Marks and Spencer. Very reasonable. Some good pubs near the Molly malone statue at the bottom of the street, or around the side entrance to Marks and Spencer.

Hope that starts you off in the right direction.

If you specify what type of food you liked, it might allow for specific suggestions, as there are lots of restaurants on the side streets around Grafton street.

Are you looking for a restaurant or a pub or a pub that serves food? What kind of restaurant are you looking for - casual, more formal? What kind of food do you like and roughly what's your budget? It's just that there are tons of restaurants and pubs in every direction within a short stroll of Grafton Street so if you could give us some more information about your preferences, it would help us point you in the right direction!

Not sure about the 'fun' bit - are you looking for a TGI Friday's type of place? There's one at the top of Grafton Street on St. Stephen's Green. Dandelions which is beside it might also fit the bill for you but we can't vouch for the food.

For a lively atmosphere with good Asian food, we'd suggest trying Saba in Clarendon Street

http://www.sabadublin.com/

Or Dada (Moroccan) in South William Street

http://www.dadarestaurant.ie/

Or Shebeen Chic in South Great Georges Street

http://www.shebeenchic.ie/

All of these are within about 10 minutes' walk or less of Grafton Street.

Alternatively, you could just wander down the side streets off Grafton Street or down Dawson Street or South William Street which run parallel to Grafton Street on either side of it where there is a large concentration of restaurants and see what takes your fancy.

Not sure if this is too late. Grafton St itself doesn't have too much food wise. Most of it canteen style.

Maybe try the side streets. Sth Anne St has Gotham Cafe, good fun, always a bit of a buzz - http://www.gothamcafe.ie/

Try Clarendon St, pubs and restaurants with lots of fun abound. Or Parallel to Grafton St, is South William St.

Tons of options there for food/drink/fun.
