Our Story

18 years of Gourmet

We believe in flavour. But we also believe in genuine hospitality and incredible atmosphere. Bring all three together, and you create an unforgettable dining experience every time.

Established in 2006, Gourmet Food Parlour has evolved to become Dublin’s most trusted restaurant group, with 6 locations across Dublin and Galway including a state-of-the-art catering kitchen in Santry.

In 2023, we opened 3 unique dining concepts inside the iconic Arnotts Dublin department store.

Our fare is shaped by long-standing relationships with Irish producers, where local ingredients are sourced via sustainable practices. As fresh as we can find from the farm to your table.

Healthy, nutritious, and affordable food.
