I dined in Bang, we had two tasting menus and their recommended wines. The seats are compact and close. The dining room was a bit cold, however warmed up comfortably when people sitting near us requested that the heat be turned up. The service and food was really excellent. Each course was well presented, very tasty and the timing was... More

This was a birthday gift, a five course taster meal with accompanying wines. The restarant is small and comfortable with a nice atmosphere. It is set on two levels and the very nice and helpful staff are constantly on the go. It is evidentially a very popular place so booking ahead is a good idea. I have a very hearty... More

We opted for the 8 course tasting menu and found it an absolute delight. We went for the matching wines which we shared between us and a pichet of the Tempranilo. From start to finish this meal was great. The salmon with black sesame was one of the best dishes I've ever had the pleasure to eat. The venison was... More

My partner and I went for the eight course tasting menu which we found, to be honest, uninspiring. We also had the wine pairing with some interesting combinations but over all probably not worth it.

Visited Bang for Lunch as a group of 6 on Valentines Day and pre the Ireland France Rugby match. We found everything about Bang to be top class . We were on the 3 course lunch menu , which was very good value, and had a great and interesting selection which catered for all the group. All washed down with... More

From start to finish this place was a disaster. Over priced bland food, and completely undercooked cold steak (not at all what I ordered). If you want to be ripped off go here. Sorry to be so crude but one of the worst places I have eaten.

Booked recently for a large group - been a few years since I have been here and was looking forward to their steak and Béarnaise sauce. Whilst service was great, table for 10 people was tight and really not the best. Steak and sauce was not what i remembered it to be. Meal was good but I found prices to... More

I went to Bang recently with family for my mom's birthday. She was visiting from the states and I wanted to make her night special, and the staff couldn't have been better. We shared a few starters, and everyone got different main courses. My halibut was outstanding. Everyone in our party enjoyed their choices, and the few bites of other... More
