The 101 Talbot is one of Dublin s best-loved restaurants thanks to excellent modern cooking and vivacious service. It boasts great food, friendly staff, buzzing atmosphere and full bar licence. The 101 is highly acclaimed and recommended in many guides. . Popular with Dublin s artistic and literary set, and conveniently close to the Abbey and Gate theatres, the restaurant is a very central venue to start or end an evening in Dublin s city centre. Creative contemporary food -- with Mediterranean and Middle Eastern influences -- using fresh local ingredients. A broad range of healthful options and several vegetarian choices make this a highly versatile restaurant. Our walls often display exhibitions of contemporary art, usually by local artists.
