Fodor's Review

Once Dublin's favorite secondhand bookshop–café, the Winding Stair now houses an atmospheric, buzzing little restaurant, with old wooden floors, simple decor, a downstairs bookshop, and grand views of the Ha'penny Bridge and the River Liffey. Upstairs, former habitués will enjoy seeing the old bookcases around the walls (some of which are now stacked with wine). Hearty portions of upmarket traditional Irish food rely on Irish-only ingredients; the Goatsbridge Farm sea trout is a standout. An inventive wine list and a wonderful Irish farmhouse-cheese selection are two more treats on offer, and your sweet tooth insists that you try the rice pudding with melted plums.
