Cuisine: A La Carte, Contemporary, Irish
Price Point: Mains from €10 - €25

A gastronomic heavyweight in its own right, Circa stands for culinary excellence in all they do, from perfectly executed dishes to the delicate smudges of tantalising purees on each plate.

Blink and you might miss it! Not one to shout their own name, Circa sits quietly and serenely in central Dublin; you've got to be in the know! Inside, it exudes this same sense of exclusivity with its small, cosy dining area, tiny bar, and carefully considered, glamorous touches. This high-end establishment couldn't be more perfect if you're out to impress.

Begin your culinary adventure with some of their starters that are dripping with gastronomic innovation. Organic salmon is paired with fennel and blood orange relish, duck foie gras sits pretty alongside a pistachio terrine whilst the buttermilk fried rabbit is an ode to culinary imagination and isn't something you'll find elsewhere!

Their mains are bigger and better with their suckling pig belly, beef fillet with pressed potato and truffle (is there anything more decadent?) and the delicate roast cod with truffle hazelnut pesto (keep the truffle coming!) Yes, the dishes might look too beautiful to eat, but we promise it's worth it!

Circa has that lovely local vibe where you feel as though you’ve arrived home when you walk in. Service was extremely attentive, knowledgable and friendly. The presentation of dishes in bright contrasting colours and playful design—each worth an instagram page if that is your style—quickly eliminates any idea that you might be sitting in your own dining room. Finally, the creative combination of flavours and textures left us not wanting to give back the plate until the very last bit had been mopped up.

First visit to Circa was a very positive experience. Food was excellent and beautifully presented. Waiting staff were attentive without being intrusive as can be the case in some restaurants. Will definitely be back!

I had an absolutely SUPERB meal in Circa. Staff were wonderfully warm and helpful. The menu was interesting and varied and the food was deliciously divine. Every morsel of every dish was delicious. I had the Salmon to start and it was cooked perfectly with wonderful little touches, followed by the Halibut which came with broccoli and amazing puree, and sauce, really tasty. There was no need for Salt/Pepper on the table as everything was seasoned to perfection. This chef knows how to present and cook delicious food. Long may Circa continue.
