A Little Gem on South William Street

I am always keen to try new restaurants but there is nothing worse than trying somewhere new and it being crap. I find it hard to pay over for a meal that I was not happy with. I had been told by a friend who is a foodie himself to try Eden bar and Grill so we decided to try it this weekend. It was somewhere I had walked by many times and had never gone in. It was deceiving from the outside as when I went in it was so much bigger and really a little gem with a gorgeous interior.

We decided to go off the early bird menu, for €20 for two courses we said wed stick to that especially as it was our first time there.

As they had a good cocktail list it would have been rude not to have one. I wanted something simple and had a Bellini! It definitely helped tackle my Sunday fear. I had a good feeling about this place but I was seriously impressed with the starters when they came out. The presentation was amazing but then the taste oh my god, especially my asparagus starter it was divine!

The prawn gambas above was also delicious but I think I will be ordering the asparagus again.

Now for the mains, after the starters we were served up it was hard to keep the high expectations to a minimum. The chicken dish came out beautifully presented and full of taste, sadly this was not my main. I opted for the risotto and unfortunately I was a little disappointed it just didn't have the same love and attention as the other dishes that were served up to us.

Summer pea risotto topped with rocket and parmesan had a lot more potential as it had all of the right ingredients it just lacked that wow factor. 

We sat outside as it was a lovely evening but inside was really gorgeous and thought it would be particularly good for a group night out.

We decided to skip desert and go and grab a 99 from the nearby Fallon & Byrne. I will without a doubt return to Eden Bar and Grill and think we have discovered a little gem on South William Street.

See you soon!!

Love BB xx
