Thornton's Restaurant has a passion for exciting, authentic food and this is the root of what they do, but that passion extends to every aspect of the dining experience. Thornton's guests do not simply consume a meal, they participate in an immersive, cultural, aesthetic, sensory experience that lingers in the memory long afterward. Thornton's approach combines respect for, and pride in, the bountiful resources of Ireland's natural landscape with a fearless, pioneering attitude towards culinary arts, which places them uniquely at the nexus of tradition and cutting-edge, sky's-the-limit imagination. Thornton's Restaurants' core purpose is to excite every sense and to evoke the wonder and joy of discovery, through dishes borne of the Irish landscape and transformed by the unique talents of Ireland's greatest chef.
The restaurant is located in the heart of Dublin, looking over St. Stephens Green making it an ideal location for guests. With breathtaking views overlooking Saint Stephen’s Green, diners can enjoy the relaxing backdrop of Ireland’s most prestigious park while sampling the finest contemporary Irish cuisine from the country’s most celebrated chef.
Thornton's also offers Private Dining in their semi-private dining room; the Scott Room. The Scott Room so named as its walls play host to a series of works by the great Irish artist Patrick Scott. This semi-private room is perfect for small private events, accommodating up to 22 people. This is a popular choice with the business community allowing for privacy whilst also conducive to flowing conversation. Finally, Thornton's Restaurant gives their guests the option to relax and unwind on inviting sofas in the Canapé Lounge. The guests can enjoy an aperitif, cocktail or a glass of wine as well as the ability to choose from a wide selection of delectable canapés, prepared with great care by their team of hugely dedicated Michelin starred chefs led by Kevin Thornton.
