Fodor's Expert Review Flemings Restaurant
On a hillside overlooking the river on the eastern edge of the city, this restaurant is in a stately Georgian house with extensive grounds, including a kitchen garden that supplies the restaurant. The food is classical French, and it's served, appropriately, in a dining room decorated in the French Empire style. Grilled monkfish from Courtmacsherry, served with a basil-oil dressing and red wine sauce is a popular main course, as is fillet of beef with wild mushrooms, red onion confit, and red wine sauce. As a "restaurant with rooms," dine-and-stay packages are available.
