Dinner at The Marker Hotel, Dublin

The Brasserie

Dinner at the Brasserie, The Marker Hotel, Grand Canal Dock, Dublin.

Last Friday night, we had the pleasure of trying out The Brasserie in the Marker Hotel.  We had bought a deal from Taste.ie which was a three course dinner together with a bottle of the house wine for €70.  The Marker Hotel is a five star hotel situated on Grand Canal Dock and is a very modern hotel.  It is a stone’s throw from Bord Gaís Theatre.

Our table was booked for 7:30pm and there were only a few tables with people at that time.  Priorities first, we opted not to go for the house wine but pick one from the wine list, a French red from the Languedoc region.  We were told that we could have €20 off the wine we chose instead as credit, which was a nice touch!

Our main dishes were superb, cooked to perfection, seasoned well and presented wonderfully.  Hubby had the Kerry Hill lamb rump and I went for the special which was Venison.

Both dishes were excellent.  Hubby said that it was the best meal he has had out in ages!  High praise indeed!

Dining in the Brasserie was a lovely relaxed dining experience, with good service from the staff.   We were told the menu was new and what a success it is!

The Restaurant was pretty full when we were leaving and had a great atmosphere.  The whole night was great value and I would definitely visit again.  All in all, I would highly recommend visiting The Brasserie for a wonderful, relaxed, enjoyable night out for dinner.

After dinner, we decided to head up to the Rooftop Terrace Bar for a couple of cocktails.  The views from here are amazing!
