Savoir Fare review: ‘I wish Ireland had more restaurants like this wonderful nose-to-tail Irish-French bistro’

I can’t guarantee you’ll get a poetry reading to accompany your lunch at Savoir Fare as we did during a recent visit to Westport for Westival, but I wouldn’t be surprised if you do. It seems to be the kind of restaurant where events such as this happen not infrequently. Our meal coincides with a reading by Patrick Kavanagh Poetry Award winner Geraldine Mitchell, who divides her time between Mayo and France. Wry and witty with a unique style honed by her hybrid life, Mitchell’s work is perfectly in tune with what’s going on at Savoir Fare, itself a rather unique Hiberno-French spot which has charmed me on several occasions over the past few months.

irst, there were the excellent picnic boxes of Irish cheese and charcuterie we nabbed one day to sustain us on the train journey from Westport to Dublin, on which there is still no trolley. Would that we’d had the foresight to pick up a bottle of wine from Savoir Fare’s classy selection — local star, pharmacist/winemaker Róisín Curley, occupies pride of place on its shelves — to accompany this feast, but it was pretty good even without.
