On a 3 night visit to Dublin, and having read the great reviews, we visited Lavanda and were not disappointed. A small, unpretentious restaurant with a lively atmosphere (full on a Wednesday night) and great food/wine at sensible prices. Although we were staying on the North side of the river (a 20 minute walk away), we would happily take a longer stroll from the "tourist centre" on our next visit. Thoroughly recommended !!

Was staying in Smithfield area and found this Croatian restaurant on a cold Tuesday night in November.

I was the only person there as I tucked into the lamb shank washed down with the local Croatian wine

Good value for Dublin only 19.50€ for the lamb and 7€ a glass of wine

Have been here many times, always met with a smile and warm Croatian charm! The place is run by lovely couple. Food is consistently good and has a proper homecooked style, delicious lamb shank and rib eye steak on the menu all washed down with excellent Croatian red is preferred choice. Perfect local Soneybatterian place to sit down and chat in peaceful environment far away from crowds!
See you soon Lavanda

Small, quaint, off the beaten path....found it by accident. Awesome lambshanks, gnocchi with pork incredible. Tried house red wine..a robust French wine...do order this, yes it is a house wine, but way above what you'd expect in a house wine...they are proud to serve it not just by the glass, but by the bottle...that in itself is telling!
Our server Robert was friendly, attentive, but not intrusive. Small intimate atmosphere a gem of a rare kind! Good job!
