I noticed Urchin maybe a week or two ago and knew straight away I wanted to try it - great marketing!
I decided to book for a belated Father's Day and booked online - turns out I booked the the Cliff Townhouse by accident, an easy mistake to make on the website. It was no issue at all.
We arrived at half six and sat outside on stools next to a sort of make-do bar table. Ordinarily I probably would have found this annoying or inconvenient, but with 20 degree weather and great food it didn't bother us at all.
I had a blue urchin cocktail and my dad had a G&T. Both were lovely.
We chose a selection of the tapas:
We dug in, the pieces come out when ready which is great so you get a few at a time. The artichokes were incredible. One of the best things I've eaten in a while. The croquettes were good, marinated trout very tasty. We made the mistake of ignoring our servers advice and left it on the salt block too long, but it was still delicious! The octopus is fantastic, really buttery and smoky.
We decided to order another artichoke and also try the Irish pork. The Irish pork was also stunning.
Highly highly recommend. The menu changes, but the servers are lovely and know what's good.
The plates are small, it is tapas, so bear that in mind. We left full but not bursting at the seams with 2 drinks for €57. We both felt it was excellent value. We'll be back!
