Cosmo is an award-winning restaurant chain with 16 branches across the UK, including a Belfast branch which opened in 2012.

The restaurant chain has a “cook fresh, eat fresh” philosophy and the new restaurant in Liffey Valley will offer a variety of cuisines from around the world as well as live cooking stations, including Teppanyaki, which will provide a theatre of tastes, aromas and sounds – a dining experience unlike any other. 

In the spirit of doing business locally, Cosmo, where possible, will source all its produce and supplies from local distributors.

With the wide selection of food, live cooking stations enhancing the dining experience, the restaurant will appeal to families as well as groups of friends or colleagues looking for great value that’s a little bit different.

Speaking about Cosmo Group and the creation of 150 jobs for Dublin, Tánaiste Frances Fitzgerald stated, “I am delighted to welcome these 60 jobs to Liffey Valley and to the Dublin area, and pleased that Cosmo decided to locate their first restaurant outside of the UK and Northern Ireland here in Liffey Valley.

“This is another welcome investment in Liffey Valley, creating jobs for local people and families throughout the West Dublin area.

“I wish the management and staff success, in particular in the build-up to Christmas, which is always a popular time to enjoy a meal out with friends and family.”

Speaking about the Liffey Valley opening, Bock Liang, Regional Director, said: “We have been inundated by our Dublin fans visiting Belfast asking when we were bringing the concept to Dublin.

“It’s a very exciting time of expansion for the Cosmo restaurant group, and we are also planning more Dublin locations in the city centre and South Dublin in the next 18 months.”
