Based on Queen Street, in Smithfield, Token is a funny place to have dinner. In Token there is a great selection of delicious meals similar to what you can find in an American diner. The menu is creative, and the prices are reasonable. The concept is a retro-style bar area. There are 40 retro gaming machines to try out and this venue will bring back some nostalgic fun.

Hang Dai Chinese

Hang Dai Chinese is probably the most atypical Chinese restaurant in town. The restaurant is in the heart of the city.  The interior is interesting there are no windows in the dining area and the table booths are framed in as if your sitting on a train. Their food is delicious and there a great selection of vegetarian and gluten-free options

La Peniche

Last but not least, La Peniche is the perfect place to have a romantic dinner. The concept is inspired by the “Péniches” of Paris and is a floating restaurant located on the Grand Canal. La Peniche is the only restaurant of its kind in Dublin. You’ll have a fantastic experience, sailing down the canal while enjoying a French/Italian style cuisine.
