This place was recommended to me and didn't disappoint. Dublin can be expensive but we felt the burgers were fairly priced and delicious. It was suggested that we try the chicken wings and I have to say I was disappointed. They were oily and overpriced for what is a cheap cut of meat. We have a fun time though and... More

Wings claim to be the "best in Dublin". Being from the USA I like to think of myself as a wing connoisseur. I would rate these 4*. They need a bit more kick or the restaurant needs to give customers a "hot factor" choice for people who want a kick. There is always a wait and the queuing system could... More

Myself and my partner went here for lunch on Sunday. The place was very busy but we were seated straight away.

Visited on Saturday for lunch and the food was amazing! After reading previous reviews we had high expectations and were not let down, the wings were very good. Unfortunately the same could not be said about the staff who were rude, grumpy and did not provide the services that would be expected in such a nice restaurant, they were actually... More

Very popular restaurant for both breakfast and lunch so get there early. Large portions of food and lots of choice for both veggies and non veggies.

I kid you not. The chicken wings are to die for. My favourite restaurant in Dublin. Fantastic food, great staff, lively atmosphere! You have to book but just pop in an hour before you want to eat and go for a drink or listen to music in one of the many great pubs in Temple Bar! The food is American... More

The breakfast here is amazing! You can order pretty much anything you can think of and they have it - with style! Their California Sunrise breakfast is huge and none of us could finish it! Great service with friendly staff too! Our family loved it here!

The Elephant & Castle really is a gem of a find, a fantastic location in the temple bar area of town, the menu has the most extensive range for the fussiest amongst us. The Chips really are the most amazing ever experienced, happy friendly staff servicing a relaxed atmosphere.

Went here for lunch with a party of six. Food was amazing! Though think I should've gotten the wings as they were flying out of the kitchen. I got a garlic burger - amazing! Chips were hot and crispy. Great food!
