The Strawberry Tree Restaurant

The Strawberry Tree at BrookLodge & Macreddin Village is an experience not to be missed. Evan Doyle has created a magnificent dining room, with a menu totally devoted to organic ingredients. There is nothing on the menu here which is not organic or wild, and that's stated clearly. Inspections from the Organic Trust certifying body are tough and at random, so not even a hint of non-organic ingredients are allowed in the kitchens.

Our Review of La Taverna Armento at Brooklodge & Macreddin Village

La Taverna Armento is the second restaurant in the grounds of BrookLodge & Macreddin Village, Co Wicklow. This casual dining restaurant is named after  Armento, a village in southern Italy around which all the ingredients to produce authentic Italian dishes are sourced. This area  in the province of Basilicata is known for its good olives and olive oils amongst other delicious items,  which form the basis of the dishes on the menu here.

The people of Armento have supported Brooklodge and its owner and mastermind Evan Doyle in his constant quest for the best quality produce.  As a result, La Taverna Armento has the feel of a real Italian eating house. Characterful and cosy, friendly and welcoming, here is a place to indulge in probably the best Italian food  you will eat outside Italy. The full Southern Italian menu here uses much produce sourced directly from small producers in Italy.  

That means a truly representative Italian feast prepared by chefs passionate about the cooking of the region.  Many of the chefs in Wicklow have visited Armento and surrounding area, building relationships with artisans and working and alongside local chefs to learn the true tricks of the trade when it comes to pasta, pizza and all things Italian.  A special wood fired pizza oven churns out stone baked pizza like you never tasted before.

Fresh pastas are rolled and shaped and served fresh from the hob with typical sauces. Core ingredients like meat and fish are sourced at home - true to the Brooklodge and Good Food Ireland ethos.

 It's a perfect marriage of food from two countries Italian wines will accompany your feast and great Italian coffee for after dinner too.
