When we arrived at 4:45 pm, the place was packed. We waited about 30 mins for a table. There is no bar to sit at, so you have to stand and keep out of the waiter's way. Had the wings, which were out of this world and the Elephant Burger. The burger had the mildest curry/sour cream we've ever tasted.... More

Have eaten here afew times but the last time I was there the service wasn't very good. However the food was delicious. Best wings every. Definitely worth a try. Would highly recommend the food in Elephant Castle but service with a smaller is always nice!

We made a reservation for dinner and we get there 10 minutes before. The table was empty but the hostess left us waiting for almost 10 minutes. We asked some appetizers. The crab cake looked nice but had no taste. The service was very slow. The main courses were ok, but not great. The menu looks great but the taste... More

nice food and very popular so you must book or the wait could be long. My husband has eaten here before and he loves spicy chicken wings so he was in his element! They are not my cup of tea but they were lovely I pinched one. My food was great, mussels followed by a chicken dish.

Good variety on menu, especially the range of burgers and vegetarian meals. Food arrived quickly and was very tasty. Restaurant is in the centre of temple bar and seems very popular. Only complaints are lack of interaction from staff and lack of atmosphere, it felt like service, food, pay now leave

Ive been going to this restaurant for years and the wings have remained amazing. I generally go with friends and we get a basket of wings each and a bottle of wine and leave feeling full and satisfied for under 50 quid! There is nothing like the first wing that takes your breath away as you dig in. The wings... More

Me and my mom were in Dublin for a few night and decided to treat ourselves for lunch here. It was just about 12ish when we arrived so was pretty empty.We asked the waiter could we... More

I went here with a friend for brunch. I had the eggs n' apples benedict with Maple Syrup on French toast. It was really nice good. Service was a bit slow, but they were very busy. It was a bit annoying that they managed to hand me and my friend different menus. We realised when I suggested what I was... More
