Located in the heart of Dublin’s fair city on South Great George’s Street, Brasserie Sixty-6 boasts an extensive and hugely impressive menu. In fact, the menu alone is a feast for the eyes.

With an array of dishes, the freshest ideas and ingredients – there are choices to suit all types of eaters. From carnivores to vegetarians, coeliacs to fuss pots, you’re bound to find something to suit your taste buds here.

Upon entry to the brasserie, I was instantly taken by the interesting mish mash of décor throughout – but particularly by the great wall of china!! There’s quite possibly a plate for every day of the year on that wall, worth a visit alone for all you fellow crockery lovers.

With a window view of the bustling street outside and a Mimosa in hand, I got ready to eyeball the Sunday lunch menu. I have to admit, I found it really refreshing to see a wide variety of Sunday lunch options available, as generally, I find Sunday menus quite sparse and often similar in nature.

After drooling over the glorious offerings for some time, we finally made our decisions and got ready for our first course.

I opted for the Mushroom Soup with Parmesan, Truffle Oil and Enoki – meaty in flavour with a slightly sweet finish, everything it should be and more.

My fellow diner, Miss Mary Jo Kingston,  went for the Hummus, Tabbouleh, and Olive Tapenade with Flatbread. I must say, flatbread by name but in no means flat in flavour – it was seasoned perfectly to match all the other tasty and colourful ingredients that were so neatly laid out.

Next up – the main courses. A Chargrilled 6oz Sirloin of Beef with Tiger Prawns, Spicy Wedges and Avocado Salsa for myself, and the Smoked Bacon, Garlic and Thyme 1/2 Rotisserie Chicken, with Herb Stuffing Balls, Mashed Potatoes and Honey Roasted Root Vegetables with Gravy for Mary Jo. A mouthful of words on a menu, followed by mouthfuls of food and clean plates to finish.

The Beef was beautifully tender and cooked to my liking, the prawns were perfectly flavoured and devoured in an instant. Mary Jo happily carved her way through the succulent chicken, as I tried to distract her so I could nab one of her stuffing balls! At this point, we were stuffed like chickens ourselves, but some perky Espresso Martinis made their way to our tables, helping to wake us up for dessert.

I ordered the Yogurt and Vanilla Panna Cotta with Blueberry Ice-Cream, and Mary Jo opted for the Peanut Butter Mousse with Chocolate Ice-Cream. Fine desserts to end a delectable meal, both of them were bursting with flavour and character.

All in all, Brasserie Sixty-6 is highly recommendable. With a huge variety of fresh dishes and flavours, from light bites to three course meals, they have it all on offer in a wonderfully friendly and relaxed environment.
