We settled here simply because the venue was out of the ordinary. It was very crowded and lively with a fun atmosphere. The service was lacking. Despite the friendly demeanor of our server she was just hard to track down for ordering, refilling, retrieving the bill, etc. I would return but maybe just for cocktails.

I've had the odd pint in The Bank on College Green as it's a great place to meet and greet. It's an old Bank converted to a restaurant/bar and if for no other reason it's worth a visit to check out the decor. The food is great, the staff are friendly and the music is just right so there's a... More

In Dublin for a weekend break and was advised to go here. Booked a table as its a busy place and not much seating at the restaurant upstairs. Delicious meal but a little pricey. Worth a visit!

Converted from a Bank, this restaurant/bar is in a great location. They have kept the original features whilst transforming it to a bustling comftable eating/meeting place. Order the fish and chips, pint of Guiness, sit back and enjoy

The Bank offers great food in fantastic surroundings. The Bank used to be just that, a bank. It looks great, has live piano music and very nice food for little money. If you eat before eight, you get two courses for 19 euro, which is great value! You have to try the chicken liver paté!

We arrived at The Bank on Saturday 29th October 2011 at 2.45pm, without a reservation. We were 6 adults and a 2 year old child. We got a table upstairs on the balcony which is a lovely setting. The waitress was very nice and she offered to move us to a better table once the previous diners had left. We... More

A great place for a relaxing drink. The decor is stunning, and the atmosphere is quite high brow but not elitest. There are nods to the original bank all over - the toilets are the vaults!!! Lovely place.

Recommended by locals. Lovely interior. Very good food and service. Two minor issues- table size- small, and music, while wonderful- a bit too loud. Ask for a table in the balcony.
