I've eaten at this place twice so far on my 4 day trip to Dublin. I highly recommend the chicken wings (you will see them on almost every table in the restaurant, so that alone says it all). The brunch is pretty fantastic as well. Definitely worth a visit.

We arrived in Dublin at 8am after a very early flight and couldn't check into our hotel until 2pm. We had seen Elephant and Castle recommended in the Lonely Planet guide so when we spotted it round the corner from our hotel, we figured it would be a good place to kill some time in the warmth. The breakfast menu... More

Me and the mrs walked past and it looked busy so thought this must be good. So doubled back and called in, got seated straight away and the food was very good I had club sarnie and the mrs had baby ceaser salad with chicken. Had a couple of drinks and the bill was 30 euro. So not bad priced... More

The wings are AMAZING they are a must order! My husband and I had a sandwich each, it was fresh and very tasty and after so many wings, it was plenty of food. Also if you like Ginger Ale, try their home made version very nice!

I would advise anyone visiting Dublin to try these wings, they are delicious. I was there with friends and it had a wonderful ambiance. Staff friendly and efficient, good value for money, good selection of wine & beers. Will definitely be back

This place was one of the busiest restaurants in Temple Bar. Good food and friendly helpful staff. The chicken wings were great and very popular. Menu was varied and well priced. Good choice of sweets as well.

I have been meaning to go here for quiet a while due to the infamous chicken wings l had heard about, wasnt disappointed with them. Remainder of food however was mediocre and over priced. Staff were efficient however would not rate them as friendly or earning the tip we left either. Would return but only for the chicken wings....

Our food was excellent, the service is attentive and friendly, and it has a nice atmosphere. The omelettes here a beautifully done. The wings are a hugely popular item with the regulars. Sadly management needs to advice staff to be more attentive to their personal hygiene. The youngman who brought our food to the table had a serious body odor... More

Go to elephant and castle regularly. It is casual, nice atmosphere. Food is great. Loos need updating and are sometimes needing a clean.
