Café Bar Deli, Dublin

Concierge.com's insider take:
Situated in the former Bewley's Café on George's Street, Café Bar Deli serves wholesome Italian food at extremely reasonable prices. Standards like spaghetti Bolognese and pizza (try the one with feta, spinach, chorizo, and basil pesto) are served in small and large portions, and there's a decent wine menu, too. The Edwardian dining room is big on atmosphere, as is Bewley's on Grafton Street, where a second outlet is located (velvety booths and Harry Clarke stained-glass windows). Both shore up a dining space that has served Dubliners for decades. Café Bar Deli attracts a varied crowd; you're as likely to encounter well-dressed businessmen as starry-eyed couples or spaghetti-throwing toddlers. Consider it an all-things-to-all-people kind of place.—Pól Ó Conghaile
