My husband booked the Ely as a birthday treat prior to going to the theatre. From beginning to end it was a lovely experience. Staff were very welcoming, food was delicious and the cost was very reasonable for the quality of the food. Location is excellent with parking close by and a stroll across the road to the theatre.

Had lunch with a friend last week. Both of us had the sandwich of the day. Pulled pork which was very good. They were busy but service was still good. Really nothing to fault here. I will be back! Also, I think they have reduced their prices without reducing their quality which is to be commended.

Really nice place, crowded and noicy but still cosy and warm. The food was great, and the staff really knew how to mix drinks and food in an excellent way. We got some great recommendations and had a fab meal!

Excellent value for money. Two of us shared a lamb platter. I'm not wild on lamb (often too fatty) but this was excellent: we have our own organically raised sheep at home that we spit roast whole, so I have a very high standard of expectation, but this was up there for taste. We had a relatively inexpensive Rioja with... More

I visited Ely with a friend for brunch. We had initially planned on visiting Ely Brasserie at CHQ but were surprised to find it closed on a bank holiday. So we crossed the river, just a short walk away to Ely gastro bar. We were pleased to find the brunch was available and were impressed with the selection. We opted... More

There are certain things in the hospitality sector that can be done very well or very wrong. The management and staff of Ely Gastro should be recognised for doing things very well - quality and service are measured in many ways but simple things work. Erik and Michelle have worked to get this right and this has passed to their... More

Had a late lunch here with friends. Staff were friendly and helpful. Food was amazing though slow to come out and wasn't even that busy. Beautiful view over the Dublin Docks especially on the sunny day we had.
