Bresson brings fine dining and great value to Monkstown and South County Dublin served in a casual, comfortable and friendly ambience.

The restaurant is named after photographer Henri Cartier Bresson, who shook up the formality of classical photography with spontaneity and casual brilliance.

Executive Chef Temple Garner aims to do the same with the menus we offer.

Our focus in the dining room is on warm, old-fashioned hospitality that tells you you’ve come to the right place, whatever kind of occasion brings you to the table.

Our design motif, inspired by our location and the beach at Seapoint, hints at another inspiration: local, natural ingredients.

This is what Bresson is all about. A collaboration between classic, old-school French cuisine and fresh, locally sourced produce, to which we add our own unique twist, born of extensive experience.

Great value is to be found on our Early Bird menu available all night on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, from 5pm to 7pm on Thursdays and Sundays and 5pm to 6pm on Fridays and Saturdays.

Great food and company demand great wine. We have carefully chosen a range of whites, reds and fizz to match every taste, budget and occasion.

If you’d like any advice on which wine goes best with each dish, just ask.

Bresson has something to offer all. Outdoor dining on our sheltered terrace for lunch or dinner or just refreshing after-work drinks with friends of a summers evening. For a milestone celebration Bresson is a first-class location for your special occasion.

Bookings for tables in the restaurant can be made through OpenTable, with live confirmation of availability. Walk-ins are always welcome. We look forward to giving you a warm welcome and will do all we can to make it a meal to remember.
