Review on Darwins
A handy addition to the Dublin dining scene, Darwins looks rather unassuming at first glance, but inside it is chic, attractive and appealing: eye-catching modern artwork and mirrors adorn the walls and the choice of food is sure to please.
The owner also runs a butcher's shop, so it should come as no surprise to find top-notch meat grabbing much of the limelight on the European-biased menu. Steaks are out of the top drawer, the kitchen does great things with rack of new season's Wicklow lamb, and there's an interesting duo of roast quail and guinea fowl served on a bed of scallion mash.
Elsewhere, expect a few eclectic touches like Peking duck and vegetable duck spring rolls and crab cakes with coriander mayonnaise to start, plus a range of Euro-desserts such as marinated berries with meringues and cream or bread-and-butter pudding. Well-chosen global wines complete the picture.
