I visited this establishment with a fear of being in-undated with kids as it is listed with children's facilities. There as no need to fear - it was quiet and pleasant and I was not bothered too much at all. I opted for a burger which is not what I would normally go for - but it was the option... More

Myself and my husband went to Joels on a Friday night (they have a ladies night , it has a three course menu for €24.95). We were greeted and seated when we arrived and put at a lovely table away from the main area, which has a kind of food hall appearance. We took our seats a level up from... More

The interior is quite nicely done, the booths are definitely the best place to sit, it has a very American feel to it menu is comprehensive (salads burgers steaks etc) and there is an ok wine selection. It is very much a... More

The meal was obviously precooked then heated in microwave. The taste was at best average to poor. Although only about 1/3full of customes it was very loud.. If... More

My friend lives a 10 minute drive from here so when I visit her we regularly go to Joel's for dinner. It's a very busy restaurant and quite noisy. There's nothing fancy about it at all but the food is always good and you definitely won't leave hungry! Good value for money.

Stopped here for dinner after a long flight from Sydney. The service was quick and friendly. The food was delicious, warm and homely after eating airplane food for 24 hours. Would visit again with friends or family.

food was tasty but a little expensive. The restaurant was quiet at the time and comfortable, relaxing evening. Eaten there a number of times - great as a treat while visiting Dublin/staying in hotel.

I've eaten her numerous times over the years and I've never left disappointed. The food is always lovely and served to you by lovely waitress/waitresses with a smile happy to help. I'll definitely be back as this is one of favourite restaurants while I'm in Dublin.
