Balfes Bar & Brasserie

Located on Balfe Street, where Grafton Street and the Creative Quarter meet, Balfes is a vibrant all-day bistro with a 20-seater outdoor terrace, a zinc covered bar and an open kitchen serving beautifully prepared dishes such as seaweed-cured salmon gravadlax, roast Atlantic hake with quinoa and Asian greens, and superb rib eye steaks cooked on a Josper grill. 

Combining the energy of a trendy New York eatery – complete with subway tiles and industrial-chic flourishes – and the relaxed elegance of a high end Parisian brasserie, Balfes serves the finest locally sourced produce.

The team has scoured the country to find the best that Irish artisans have to offer, from artisanal cheeses to free-range poultry and grass-fed beef, dry-aged for 32 days.
