Stylish, spotty service and mostly good food.

We were seated downstairs. Space was a bit tight but I have experienced much closer quarters in Manhattan. The service was off and on since the waiter was handling so many tables. Appetizers were excellent for the most part. One of our party ordered a slow cooked egg, a dish that is difficult to... read more

Wonderful food and service? What looked like a simple Irish menu was prepared and served in a incredible combination of simplicity and taste. Could have been in some of the food capitals of the world.

My husband and I made reservations at this restaurant on the recommendation of the concierge at our hotel. We wanted something within walking distance, good food, good service, classy but not too formal. Bang was the perfect choice. We had a fantastic meal, with friendly and welcoming service, and a lovely laid back ambience. I would highly recommend this restaurant... More

We walked out, having requested a reservation at a "friendly neighbourhood" restaurant. We did get neighbourhood, and friendly, but we also got incredible quality. Bang is a smallish restaurant with several smaller rooms loosely connected, but allowing a feeling of intimacy. Service was excellent, friendly and knowledgeable. The wine list was surprisingly good, and the menu was quite innovative. I... More

Bang Restaurant proves you have to try before you buy! I'm delighted to write a great review about a restaurant I wasn't expecting to be so good! We were warmly welcomed to our table by a great and well informed waiter! We were served up a tasting menu that was delicious (Monsieur Michelin take note) and the chocolate dessert will... More

Bang is a trendy restaurant in a great area of Dublin.  I had a very satisfying meal here with business associates, but it would be great for a date.  Reservations are a must, but worth it if you have to wait.  The food all was unique.  My favorite was the Duck.   It is a little spendy, but average costs for...

Upon arriving from the United States in Dublin, my wife and I experienced a great dinner. I had contacted the restaurant several months prior to arriving In Dublin and was not disappointed. My main course of Lamb Loin was superbly prepared and the service was outstanding. I would go back again during my next trip.

The style is clean and modern, the music hip, but the focus at Bang is on the food. The atmosphere is conducive for a romantic dinner, girls night out meal before heading to Temple Bar, or business, and there were all types in attendance when we visited. The music set a mellow vibe but was low enough for easy conversation.... More

Lunch was superior. Bang falls below Aniar in Galway. Aniar has a Michelin star but above its local competitors, Hugo and Pearl. Service was excellent and helpful. The veal carpaccio (called something else on the menu) and the risotto were fabulous. My wife loved the veal meatballs. Our waitress helped us with dinner reservations as well. It was one our...

Don't get me wrong. The food is good and the service is ok. But is not worth what you pay for it. We had a 5 course tasting menu at 60€pp. Nothing in the menu was spectacular so I don't think it justifies the price. We were just happy we had a Groupon voucher with 2 tasting menus for the... More
