Value lunch at George’s Wine Bar

There’s one dining tips, tried and tested time and again, to getting great value meals – go at lunchtime rather than dinner. Most restaurants in town have incredibly marked up prices for the evening but keeping the tag low during the day in order to draw in more customers. This is, in a way, promotional work for them. If the punters are happy they are bound to return at dinner for special occassion and fork out just that bit more money.

George’s Wine Bar is definite one of those places. If anything, it’s one of the best kept secret for lunch! I’m even a tad reluctant to write about this, but at the same time, it would be selfish of me not to share. Main courses going at €9 each, and starter with main course going at €13. The price also includes tea/coffee at the end of the meal. Now, are you interested?

Have a look at its lunch menu. And drool over the following images. ;-)

Bread and salmon

Trout and pork

My friends and I have been there several times, and I’ve been working my way trying the different dishes on offer. The smoked salmon (top, right) is light and perfect for a summer day. Pan fried sea trout (bottom, left) is delicate and delicious, and I love the sweet potato purée very much. The distinct flavour of porcini dresses up the sauce for the pork (bottom, right) just so beautifully too. I have also tried the swordfish that is served with an unusual green vegetable purée – I like the pairing of the fish with mango salsa. And oh, we also like asking for olive oil to go with their bread selection (top, left).

Anyone that I have recommended this restaurant to so far had not been disappointed. The quality of food served here is consistent, although for some guys, the portion may be a touch smaller but that’s when ordering a starter (either soup or shrimp salad) makes a lot of sense.

So the next time you’re in the city centre near Trinity College area, why not drop by George’s Wine Bar?
