Fantastic food not so warm welcome

Firstly I'd like to say the food here was excellent and definitely the best meal we had during our stay in Ireland. I highly recommend the chicken wings and rump of lamb which both were exquisite! However the only reason this has not acheived 5/5 is the service/attitude of the staff. A smile... read more

This place is always rammed and rightly so, the food was absolutely fantastic and the portion sizes are plentiful. The service was friendly and the prices whilst not cheap don't take the p***.

I have eaten in the Elephant & Castle for a long time and it's always very good. The chicken wings are their signature dish and are fablous. The salads are always updated & never tire, so if you feel you need to " watch the calories " it's no struggle eating their salad as they are always full of flavor.... More

We ate in this restaurant in our last night in Dublin. We ate a very good steak, delicious hot chicken wings, soups and salad! Everything was perfect including the service. We definitely will visit this restaurant again!

Great food!! A must for breakfast! Only criticism is the staff. The lady serving us was rude and had a major tantrum with her colleague about a customer (thankfully not us) she was loud and unprofessional; made for very uncomfortable viewing. That aside i would still recommend.
