Square Meal Review of The Port House ?

Iberian tapas served in a restaurant owned by an Irish brewery sounds unlikely, but just wait till you step through the door. Part of a small group with outlets in Cork and Dublin, The Port House works to a tried-and-tested formula that brings together a gin bar, regional cooking and a cracking list of port and sherry – with warm hospitality and a cosy, candlelit setting thrown in. Start with a balloon glass of ‘gintonic’ before roaming the Basque-influenced menu with a crisp fino or mellow Rioja to hand. Star turns include generous pintxo skewers (intense morcilla with mustard sauce and crispy onion, for example), exem-plary jamón croquetas, and garlicky elvers with prawns in chilli. Impeccably sourced cheeses and charcuterie add further appeal, while Portuguese custard tarts and sugary churros seal the deal. Bookings are only accepted for groups of six or more.
