Orwell Road is a casual neighbourhood restaurant in the heart of Dublin’s Rathgar, with all the love, effort and attention to detail you would expect in a fine dining restaurant. We focus on creating beautiful food and a unique atmosphere for our customers and approach our cooking with humility and a team mentality that focuses on helping each other grow and learn, together. This philosophy extends throughout the restaurant from the kitchen to our front of house, working together as colleagues and friends to ensure that Orwell Road is a space that respects and adds to our local community. 

Guided by Head Chef Daniel Hannigan, our kitchen uses as many local, irish ingredients as we can get our hands on with a clear focus toward sustainable sourcing. In creating our menu we have one defining rule, everything must be delicious. Maintaining this simple idea and avoiding the temptation to cook food which only shows off technical skill or ability to pair unusual ingredients is at the core of everything we do. We want each member of our team to be excited by what they do every single day and see work as a place to be able to forget everything and enjoy the positive and energetic environment we believe is an essential ingredient to creating great food in a wonderful atmosphere.

Respect for the incredible ingredients we use is a fundamental part of our philosophy and approach to how we make food. As a team we have worked hard to find incredible suppliers who put their heart and soul into growing, making and raising the ingredients we use. We show respect for our suppliers and the food and ingredients they produce by setting out to make every dish we create delicious whilst avoiding needless waste.
