About Dada Restaurant

Moroccan cuisine is considered to be one of the richest in the world: inspired by many cultures and civilizations across Africa, Europe and further East, and in particular the flavours of the Moorish kitchens of Northern Africa and Southern Spain.

In keeping with this rich heritage, dada restaurant was established to offer a unique fusion of authentic Moorish-inspired dishes in beautiful moorish surroundings. In the kitchen meet our chef Jalal Belmaati and his team, he applies his years of experience cooking in some of the finest restaurants in North Africa. Jalal started his career in Casablanca´s five star hotels, before working in Spain finest restaurants in the cities of Bilbao and San Sebastian, where he deepen his knowledge of Spanish and Central Mediterranean cuisines. In Ireland Jalal worked in the exclusive clanard and Herbert park hotel and now in Dada he is excited about introducing the authentic flavors of Moroccan and Moorish dishes to the people of Ireland and go back to his cooking roots.

We were a very large group of people so looking after us was not easy I am sure. It was an amazing evening and many thanks to Dino and his staff for an excellent night.

We had a group of 15 for a Sat night reservation. Unfortunately due to a miscommunication between the staff a reservation for a private room for the evening resulted in our group being asked to leave at 8:30 due to another booking. On the night the staff could not find the agreement that had been made in the booking discussions. Very disappointing and caused an abrupt and bitter end to the evening planned. The food was tasty and the service from our waiter was excellent. The private room was a bit dim and the group had been split over 2 tables which were not aligned so the full group could not interact together, this had not been communicated in advance, these were minor inconveniences and could have been overlooked once the party was underway. Very disappointing to what had been a favorite location for many of our participants. I could not recommend as a venue for a group anymore based on our experience.

The food was just so flavorsome, a real experience. Everything from the fresh warm bread to the tagines to the unusual and sumptuous dessert. Lovely to see a warm family working together behind the scenes. We've already booked for next weekend to try more of the menu. Thanks Dada!

In February 2017 I was in the Restaurant for a friend Birthday. On the moment of the bill we had a very big struggle of how to share the bill and even with my friend say she didn't know what had happened I doubt if it was a miss understanding of hers. Anyways 2 years later I decided to have a dinner there again given a new chance for DADA Restaurant, and before booking the place myself and Mr. Aziz were email each other to sort the details of my booking out and I was very clear asking how much would coast for us the Set Dinner menu what were we allowed to bring and if any extra charge would be costed by the number of people that would be in my booking. He was clear to say no, and I have all the emails with me to prove it. The 3 courses dinner would cost 33€ + 5€ of something = €38 totally. It was the value that I texted all my guests. We're 16 people in total and our bill came in 685€ what in between 16 was almost 43€. They charged things like Tap Water or the movement the waiter did to open a bottle of wine. I know that difference of 38€ to 43€ is not the biggest individually but all together it cost more 80€ in our bill that came out of nowhere. And as few of my friends had left already given me 40€ I was the one that needed to put the difference on the bill. Very unhappy, and definitely I wouldn't recommend the Restaurant. As it isn't the first but the second time that something like this happened of the two times that I was there. What means 100% of my experience were unhappy in this restaurant.
