Celebrated a significant birthday at Dax, and certainly not disappointed.

Pleasant staff, and very good service throughout.

Delightful starters of smoked salmon and crab, beautifully presented with nice cucumber batons, plus various surrounds like egg yolk, capers, diced red onion and fish roe. Sublime.

Mains also artistic, the John Dory great, sitting in a lobster sauce with mushrooms. The braised streak similarly superb.

The desserts were more artwork, beautifully done.

There was an extensive wine list, though it was a bit disconcerting to open it to find two pages of expensive French grands crus, before getting to the more modestly priced, but still not cheap, selection.

Great stuff, and thoroughly recommended, though I would have thought more suited to a celebration than an every day meal out.

So if you want to eat the best fresh food in Dublin, you must visit Dax. The quality of the food is extraordinary, the presentation is excellent and the wine pairing is spot on. I can't recommend it enough. The staff were helpful and considerate and friendly providing advice where needed. I have been visiting and eating in Dublin for the last 7 years and this is the best food I've eaten. You must visit Dax if you love seafood, if you're a vegetarian or if you're a carnivore. You won't regret it.

What a great start to our 10-day Ireland vacation. Dax Restaurant was fabulous. The service was spot-on and the food was the best we had during our stay in Ireland and that is saying somethings as we had many great meals...but this was the best or the best.

Dax is a French restaurant. The atmosphere is very relaxed, the staff very polite & the food was very good although I would recommend that you order a side dish as well because the portions are not very big.
