I've often heard people talk about Michael's and finally went last Saturday with 3 friends. It was super from start to finish. I had the antipasti plate and the others had warm dishes. The quality of the ingredients was amazing, like dining in Italy. I will definitely go back. It was pricey enough but the quality of the food and the portion size make it justified.

I lunch here a lot. The food is always fresh and interesting. The menu varies regularly and the coffee is delicious. The waietrs and waitresses are busy but super efficient.

We are regular patrons of Michael’s in Mount Merrion, regularly going to lunch, and also dropping by for coffee and cake. The coffee is an award-winning blend in the latest Good Food awards, and they make the best cappuccino is Dublin, if not in Ireland. All the food is home made from the crab cakes (yum!) to the cakes (try the pistachio and limoncillo, it’s moist, flavoursome and very more-ish), and at lunchtime you can watch Michael himself preparing and cooking the food. Freshness and invention are two keynotes to the food here, which is among the best in Dublin. On our most recent trips we have had Crab Cakes, served with plum and melon, olives, tomato, fresh hollandaise and dressing, and Mushroom Bruschetta, comprising large cap mushrooms fried with balsamic marinated cherry tomato and lemon juice served on toasted bruschetta, with olive oil, reggiano and basil leaves and tallegio cheese with Michael’s own dressing; and on a previous occasion ate the Warm Vegetable Stack (layers of focaccia, roasted aubergine and courgette, red pepper, mozzarella, pine nuts, basil pesto and tomato confit) and Tuna Caprese (Ortiz Tuna, tomato, mozzarella, basil leaves, slow roasted tomatoes, pine nuts and black olives served with their own Balsamic Vinaigrette). All of the pesto, tapenades and focaccia breads are made in-house. This is Italian food to die for, and extremely reasonable. Michael’s is also a wine store and deli, so you can have wine by the glass (or bottle!) with you lunch. They are open for dinner on Fridays but now have added Saturday evenings as well. The evening menu extends the Italian daytime theme to also include fillet steak and Dublin Bay prawns, as well as their home made agnolotti pasta and hake fillets among other lunchtime favourites. This place will be hopping on Saturday evenings, as popular as it is as lunchtimes (don’t forget to book, otherwise you may well end up being disappointed).
