Kevin and Muriel Thornton’s first establishment was the Wine Epergne located in Upper Rathmines from 1989 – 1992. Thornton’s opened in Portobello, Dublin in 1995 and moved to its present location on St. Stephen’s Green in 2002.
Located in the heart of Dublin, overlooking magnificent St. Stephen’s Green, Thornton’s is a wonderful location for a sumptuous dining experience. The restaurant occupies the first floor of the Fitzwilliam Hotel and its capacity is 80 person.
The dining room at Thornton’s enjoys wonderful views of St Stephen’s Green. Warm and inviting the room is modern and stylish having been refurbished by the renowned New York based 1100 Architects. Kevin’s skill as a photographer is evident from the huge framed pieces taken from his book – Food for Life that adorn the walls. These photographs provide an evocative backdrop to the exquisite array of dishes on offer. Choose from a selection of menus; perhaps an 8 course surprise menu devised for your table or from our Dinner Menu. Hugely popular is our tasting menu – a tantalising selection of 8 courses from which 5 or the full 8 can be chosen. Lunch menus at Thornton’s start from €25.
Open Tuesday to Saturday from 6pm to 9.30pm and for lunch from Thursday through Saturday from 12.30pm to 1.30pm. Pre-theatre menu available Tuesday through Saturday from 6pm.
