Had a great evening at this restaurant along with my fellow travellers, we were a party of 15. Excellent service, they served drinks swiftly and responded quickly to our needs. The food was good although not really gourmet class - but my steak was cooked exactly as I ordered it. Nice atmosphere although a bit warm and noisy as the... More

Our drinks order was taken quickly, and then food was ordered. We were all having burgers but everyone with different... More

This is a beautiful building and setting for a restaurant - ideally located in the heart of the IFSC for entertaining business clients and visitors. The staff in most cases are friendly with service being just above average. Wine is fine although expensive. However the quality of food for such a beautiful establishment is substandard. I have eaten here a... More

Dined here on Saturday with my Family from there brunch menu. It’s great to have the option to sit outside in sheltered area with heat lamps when required. The selection of wines, drinks and food is great and fairly reasonably priced. The atmosphere was good and it had a nice ambiance from the moment you walked in. We will most... More

Took a lunch break at the Ely with the crew. We were directed towards the cellars which were done up nicely and very spacious. Our server, kathryn was friendly, efficient and gave us the impression that she was well up on the fare on offer. We had steak, pork and monkfish dished. All were presented nicely on large plates, but... More

My wife was so excited to go to the Ely. We were staying at the Gibson and it was pretty close and looked nice and read good reviews about it. Our food was pretty good, Burger was good; and Chicken stuffed with pork was ok, it was a small portion and a little dry. It was the service that disappointed... More

Just had an evening at Ely CHQ watching the sun go down, enjoying a few drinks and some bar nibbles. Very friendly staff, lovely cocktails and the Black stuff and good simple bar nibbles. Staying at Jury's Inn Custom House in Dublin. Very very close by .
