The Strawberry Tree
The Strawberry Tree Review
Claiming to be Ireland's only "certified organic restaurant," this spot has been getting great reviews for its serious approach to all-natural but always stylish cuisine. It's tucked away in a rural valley as part of the BrookLodge Hotel. The glossy decor—midnight-blue walls, mirrored ceiling, and gleaming mahogany furniture—comes as a surprise, but cues you into the classy service and creative menu. Grilled mackerel with smoked chilli yogurt, carrot-and-orange sorbet, and wood pigeon with crispy coppa and white tomato foam are part of the feast that can be enjoyed at the Big Table, which seats up to 40. After dessert, check out the spectacular wine cellar.
