The teams at FIRE and SOLE are thrilled to be nominated at the World Luxury Restaurant Awards. SOLE Seafood & Grill has been nominated for ‘Best Luxury Seafood Restaurant’, which they brought home from the awards in Russia last July. FIRE Steakhouse & Bar has been nominated for ‘Best Luxury Steakhouse’ for the first time ever.

World Luxury Restaurant Awards

Established in 2015, these awards acknowledge and celebrate the very best restaurants in the world. The awards recognise culinary excellence and memorable experiences in restaurants around the world. The SOLE team were honoured to have taken home this award last year and would love to bring an award home along with their sister restaurant, FIRE this year.

Restaurant Dublin

Both restaurants offer truly magnificent dining experiences in the heart of Dublin city center.

SOLE offers professional service and the freshest seafood carefully prepared by their team of experienced chefs. Enjoy the very best Irish seafood from Irish shores including West of Ireland oysters, Dingle Bay crab, Irish lobster and Dublin Bay prawns. Their menus change seasonally, so you are guaranteed the very best in-season produce at SOLE.

FIRE offers a dining experience in a historical setting. The restaurant itself was originally built in 1864 for the Lord Mayor of Dublin as their ‘Supper Room’. FIRE has recently undergone a €1.1 million stylish refurbishment, which showcases a completely new look for the restaurant. The FIRE Steakhouse & Bar menu has been revamped and now includes more steak cuts than ever before.
