Etto

18 Merrion Row

Currently one of Dublin’s hottest tickets, Etto is a very understated restaurant (white walls, basic tables, blackboards). It’s run with great charm and enthusiasm by Simon Barrett (late of Bang, just down the street) and Liz Matthews who have teamed up with Barry Fitzgerald who used to be head chef at The Harwood Arms, the very serious London gastropub. Eclectic cooking with strong (authentic) Italian influences. Cool place.
