Meadow. Sea. Fire. These are the three most important words at Prado; it's all about locally sourced food, cooked over an open fire and served next to the sea.

This cosy bistro has everything you need for a memorable night out. It's modern and classy with a touch of urban edge to keep it rooted in no-nonsense Dublin. If you're looking for a sweet date spot, look no further.

Straight from the shimmering ocean is the chargrilled octopus, king and queen scallops and Galway Bay mussels to kick off. Honestly, if you're looking for fine seafood, you've hit the motherload!

Move on to their dry-aged beef burger or fire-roasted chicken supreme. There are four delectable cuts of steak to choose from as well as vegetarian options like the sweet potato and celeriac bake. If you feel like sharing, tuck into the whole chargrilled fish that changes daily! That's right, the Mediterranean has landed in Dublin!

Reviews

A friend and I attended for dinner this evening and the experience was fantastic. The wait staff were so attentive and friendly. We had water on our table within seconds of sitting down, and it was continually refilled without us even having to ask. They checked in to make sure we were happy with everything, but we're not obtrusive. They sought feedback on the 'smoked mash' special for the chef. The staff really were excellent and added to our experience.

We shared starters of 'Mussels and Cockles' and 'King and Queen scallops'. The scallops were fantastic and the coral sauce was well balanced and tied the dish together nicely. The one criticism of the meal was that the Mussel and Cockle sauce was quite spicy and although it was nice, we probably would have chosen something else had we known this based on the menu description.

For mains we both had the fillet steak which was cooked to absolute perfection. The meat was so tender and juicy. We shared the charred sweet potatoes, rocket and manchego salad (which was so well seasoned for such a simple side) and we asked for a side of the smoked mash which was supposed to be served as a special with the fish of the day. The smoked mash was absolutely the star of the show and should be added to the menu as a regular side. It was so different to anything we had ever tasted before and we both loved it.

For desert we shared the churros and the ice-cream sundae. The churros were so fresh and came with a selection of dipping sauces. The ice-cream sundae had pieces of beautiful moist chocolate cake in it, and the only criticism was that we would have liked a bit more ice-cream in it.

I could not recommend this place more highly. The decor is absolutely beautiful and it has a lovely relaxed atmosphere. The staff were impeccable and were beaten only by the quality of the food they served. I cannot wait to go back!

There were four of us reserved on the first table and we were immediately shown to a nice table on arrival. You can see into the kitchen and the flaming barbeque looks great.
Only my wife was having wine tonight and she selected a Montepulciana house red which she said was very nice. I had a sparkling water and the lads had soft drinks which all arrived very quickly. I had the goats cheese starter which was very tasty and filling, Pauline had the Piri Piri prawns which were hot, spicey and just right bite texture.
The staff were very friendly and attentive at all times.
All of the four main courses were very well presented and tasted great. We had burger, monkfish, steak and a pork loin. Portions were just right size and everybody complimented the sauces with their dish.
I had an apple and almond tart for dessert which was beautifully moist and yet crumbling pastry and came with a scoop of very creamy delectable ice cream. The lads had two different ice cream dishes which I sampled and were also both magnificent.
All found we all agreed we had a great meal in Prado. Food is absolutely delicious and the ambience is cool.

Really nice experience at Prado! We had the scallops and prawns to start and then one of the sharing steaks. All delicious, steak was a bit chewy but to be expected given it was a flank cut. All the staff were very friendly and we weren’t long waiting for our food. We didn’t have any cocktails but the ones coming from the bar to other tables looked tasty!
