Fodor's Expert Review Chez Hans

$$$ Cashel Lively Fodor's Choice

It's rather fitting that this restaurant is in a converted church, as it's become something of a shrine for foodies. Jason Matthia's cuisine is classic French with contemporary Irish twists. The seafood cassoulet—half a dozen varieties of fish and shellfish with a delicate chive velouté—is legendary. Another specialty is venison, mushroom and cranberry pie with chestnuts and hazelnuts. The atmosphere is wonderful, too, with dark wood and tapestries providing an elegant background for the white linen. Matthia has opened a great café next door if you prefer something more informal.
