The Church, Mary St, Dublin, Ireland

Belly of Pork and Dublin Bay Prawn

Rack of Wicklow Lamb

The Church seemed like an interesting place, since it actually is a bar and a restaurant in an old church which still has a big organ at the back. We were shown to a table which was too small for 10 diners but at least they extended at our request. First dish was pork belly and prawn and it was just that, neither clever execution nor subtly developed flavours. Next howler was that we ordered a couple of bottle of wines. They did let us taste the first one, but just opened the second without having anyone taste it and continued in filling glasses to the brim. Main dish was an overcooked lamb on some careless mash. Quite frankly foodwise this place is a disaster. It feels like an irish guy read a book on fine dining, sold his fish and chips van and had the clever idea of opening a restaurant in a church. It’s all show, not up to any standards, grab a drink here and move on. Prices:
