A proper chair, a proper table I can put my elbows on… I like it nice and simple.”

Marco Pierre White’s idea of simple is old school: elegant dishes prepared using the finest ingredients by chefs trained in London by Marco himself. The deceptively simple menu demands every dish earn its place: the choicest cuts of meat, freshest fish, classic sauces. The vibe? Grown up, relaxed, playful. The setting? An opulent room you’ll feel at home in, only better.

Marco Pierre White Steakhouse & Grill on Dawson Street was Marco’s first Irish home, and continues to welcome old friends and new. Now, Donnybrook has lured The Great White. Visit the Donnybrook website for more details.

With Marco Pierre White,


Greeted by iconic Bob Carlos Clarke images of Marco in chef’s whites and striped apron, fag in mouth or brandishing a cleaver, when you walk into Marco’s, you know you’ve signed up for more than just a decent dinner. Marco’s restaurants are all about him, and he is all about your experience. At Marco’s, you’re welcomed into plush, relaxed rooms by warm, attentive staff. The low lights flatter, the music purrs, the mood is anticipatory. Ready, steady, gorgeous!

“Eschewing the Michelin palaver of his past, the Marco Pierre White steakhouse serves top quality steak and fish, executed simply but to perfection.”
