Richmond Restaurant based in Portobello Dublin offers up an array of contemporary cooking from Head Chef David O'Byrne formerly of Mulberry Gardens & La Mere Zou.

Together with Owner and Manager Russell Wilde formerly of The Butcher Grill & Cafe Bar Deli, each bring their expertise in the restaurant business to the fore.


The location

The premises was previously The Gig's Place; a late night, greasy spoon eatery. Unloved and falling into disrepair in the last few years, the building has been lovingly repaired and refurbished, giving it back its dignity and making it one of the most beautiful and inviting buildings on the street.



MICHELIN Guide - Inspectors

''A real gem of a neighbourhood restaurant with a rustic look and a lively feel; sit upstairs for a more sedate experience. The vibrant, gutsy dishes change regularly - apart from the Dexter burger and rib-eye which are mainstays; on Tuesdays they serve a good value tasting menu where they try out new ideas.''

Quirky joint woos and wows - Aoife Carrigy - The Herald (March 2017)

"Richmond has been wooing Portobello locals and wowing critics in its first year, and it's easy to see why. This is a confident, creative and accomplished kitchen being given the freedom and respect needed to do their thing without being pigeon-holed into the latest soundbite-friendly trend."


Catherine Cleary's Best Restaurants of 2016 - The Irish Times

Winner: Best neighbourhood restaurant in Ireland

''An unassuming front means that unless you know it’s there you might miss Richmond. That would be a shame. It’s a hardworking restaurant cooking great bistro staples with a nifty early bird-deal during the week.''  Read the full article here


This Is Hands Down The Best Meal I've Eaten In 2016 - Niall Harbison, Lovin' Dublin

''Chefs all try to outdo each other, but the best ones in the world rely on good ingredients and have the confidence to just put three simple sardines on a plate. It cost about a tenner, but I'd genuinely pay €50 just to get that taste again right now as I write this. My coffee was perfect, my juice freshly squeezed and the bill very modest at under €30.

Eating out is subjective but I can safely say that from a personal perspective this was the very best thing I've eaten in 2016. By a country mile.''

A shining gem of a restaurant in Portobello - Catherine Cleary The Irish Times

"We’re on the early bird, which is an all-night bird midweek and Sunday nights, of €25 for three courses. Of course it’s only a steal if the food is good, and the great news is 43 has gone from forgotten dive to shiny new city gem.... A burger on brioche is bang-on, smoky meat that is everything a burger needs to be: good meat expertly cooked....There’s a lemon tart to make a Frenchman weep for home, with an apple-green pistachio ice-cream to make his Italian cousin mist up too...More than a good neighbourhood joint. Put it on your list of great city restaurants"

That's one in the bag...A tasty steak so good I took it home - Tom Doorley - The Independent

''Richmond is very stripped back...there's no unnecessary detail and the same goes for the menu and wine list. Even the service is understated, calm, efficient and in a sense, refreshingly ineffusive....The côte de boeuf had been cooked to perfection... a shared dessert was simple and brilliant (lemon tart)''


A New Lease of Life - TheTaste.ie                                          

"Wilde has chosen his team extremely well, and the atmosphere on the night we dined was infectious, with a combination of sterling food and top quality service after only a month of trading Richmond, much like it's regenerating street, has a very bright future ahead, in get in now while you can." ...

Mother of Reinvention : Ernie Whalley, The Sunday Times

"Give your support and you will be rewarded with David O'Byrne's food - of stunning quality and rich in imagination. We had a great time here; you will, too."

Impressed by Richmond's New Gig : Gillian Nelis, The Sunday Business Post

"(Richmond) is turning out impressively cooked and flavourful food for a very fair price, which is exactly what a good neighbourhood restaurant should be doing. Throw in some really great service and wines to suit a range of budgets and you've got a pretty enticing proposition..."
