Flavour is (almost) everything

We believe in flavour. But we also believe in brilliant service and incredible atmosphere. Bring all three together, and you transform fantastic food into a fantastic experience, which is what we’ve been doing since we first opened our doors in 2006.

Our ethos

Gourmet Food Parlour’s ethos is to produce healthy, nutritious, affordable food sourcing local ingredients and using local suppliers where possible. Established in 2006 with a restaurant in Dun Laoghaire, there are now 6 locations across Dublin and Galway including a state-of-the-art catering kitchen in Santry.

Our founder

Lorraine Heskin is Founder and CEO of Gourmet Food Parlour. Lorraine is the definition of ambitious, she is tenacious, resilient and not afraid of hard work. Hailing from a small village in Co. Galway, she studied at the University of Limerick before heading off to New York for three years, working in a diverse range of food businesses. On returning to Dublin, she opened the first restaurant in Dun Laoghaire in 2006. Since then, Gourmet Food Parlour has grown into a very successful business employing over 200 people across its seven locations.

The Gourmet Team

We’re only as good as our team, so it’s a good thing ours is totally brilliant! Consistency is key though, so we employ the best people, then train them in the Gourmet Food Parlour way at our training academy. From floor staff to front of house, everyone has been thoroughly schooled with one goal in mind: ensuring our guests have a fantastic Gourmet experience.
