On a family trip to Ireland with our three children and their spouses we had a wonderful evening at The Chophouse. The wait staff was welcoming and attentive. Joe was our waiter and gave us great recommendations for food and wine. We enjoyed delicious steaks, lamb and Dover sole. The wine pairings were perfect! A memorable dinner on our first... More

So worth it! A bit outside the city center so we took a taxi for 13 Euro. Impressive steak selection and the fillet was delicious!

Very buzzy with beautiful food. Service was excellent with friendly charming staff. I had the seafood platter from the specials and was not disappointed. My husband had the ribeye steak and tells me it was excellent. A little overpriced but would probably eat

Really nice restaurant with a relaxed atmosphere and very welcoming staff. Really like the way they bring out the meat and talk you through the cuts and recommend what's best for your taste. We all got the surf and turf special and it was cooked perfectly medium-rare with the chilli prawns and caramelised onions. Great selection of craft beers and... More

Visiting a good friend in Dublin she suggested the Chophouse as she had heard good things. And how right those things were! Absolutely delicious fine dining, luxurious cocktails, convivial atmosphere and even its own Gin menu! We ate sumptuous food and stayed all evening. Whilst definitely erring on the expensive side, the food served was definitely worth it, and the... More

I have visited this gastro pub on numerous occasions and on each visit have been impressed. The wine list is short but has a good selection by variety and by price. The starters are nicely sized and their meat main course was nicely proportioned, well seasoned and well cooked. They do mention a 2 hour table allocation at busy times... More

We had a great birthday meal here. Two of our adult sons indulged themselves with one of the giant steaks, and were not disappointed. Another son has the ribeye, which was a little chewy, so I can't award the restaurant a faultless review. Starters, such as fish on a slate done several way, were great, and those who had dessert...
