I can honestly say that the service in this restaurant was better than some Michelin starred establishments we have eaten at. The staff were attentive and knew the provenance of all their dishes. If we lived in Dublin this would be one of our go-to places to eat. The food and accompanying wine was excellent.

I dined here with friends the other evening and whilst I was optimistic about the evening (reservations staff had been very efficient and helpful) my optimism was quickly extinguished when we were greeted by a particularly surly manager who seemed totally unaware that he was working in a service industry. We had the Wild Atlantic Way tasting menu. 'Tasting' is... More

Chanced upon Bang and felt we hit the jackpot! Delicious food and great wine. Such freshness. The peas were to die for and I am not a pea person. Amazing bread! All the flavors of our meal were great and we had an assortment of small plates. We recommend!

We hired the private room upstairs for a function for work - hosting international visitors. The food was great, presented beautifully and the wine kept coming - our waiter was very attentive! Nice atmosphere and definitely recommend.

I had the tasting menu. Great ingredients, well put together but the service is well meaning but amateur at best. The service area keeps putting lights on and off which is most offputting. Some rethinking of the plan needed to realise the full potential.

Great meal in Bang. Food is all locally sourced and they give you those details so you know you are supporting Irish as far as you can with such a generous menu offering. Presentation was great and the food tasted amazing to the very last bite. Nice wine list on offer, nothing too surprising but nice none the less. It's... More

An amazing restaurant with fabulous staff, food and atmosphere. The restaurant was fabulous but on this occasion I hosted a private dinner in their private dining room. Everything was absolutely perfect from the waiting staff to the food to the assistance leading up to the private dinner. I would absolutely recommend this as a great restaurant for both lunch and...

OMG is the way I would sum up my recent visit to Bang. We had a Groupon voucher for the tasting menu and I can certainly say that this was one of the best meals I have had in recent times.

My husband and I went for the tasting menu (we used the Groupon offer). The food was good and nicely presented, but it wasn´t overly amazing or surprising. The service was excellent, the location great but the place itself is nothing special. The courses are very small, since it is a tasting menu, but I felt surprisingly full afterwards. Probably...

I enjoyed a nice meal at Bang last weekend. The cocktails were delicious and the main course I had was very flavoursome. However, the side order of fries was a complete let down, dry and cooked to within an inch of their life. The staff were helpful. The atmosphere was nice. Overall, I would return. The separate vegetarian menu was... More
