Announced at the end of last month, the award recognises restaurants that provide cuisine of a truly excellent standard, as well as demonstrating innovation and ambience and providing a high standard of hospitality.
Speaking at the awards, Byrne said: "The Church Green Bar and Grill has been a labour of love, since we took it over.
"The Inka oven has allowed us to be innovative with our dishes and bring something different to our customers."
The Inka Charcoal Oven is a closed barbecue that delivers the flavours and aromas of barbecue cooking, in the safe, contained environment of an oven.
With a glass-fronted door, which can withstand temperatures up to 750Â°C, the oven utilises coconut charcoal, which burns at a higher temperature than wood charcoal, and produces a flameless burn - even when in contact with fat.
Virtually smokeless (to keep your restaurant and kitchen free from soot) the Inka charcoal oven comes with removable tilted shelves for easy cooking control and a built-in firebreak and ash-box for the clean and easy removal of ashes.
