It is very difficult to access Joel's and you really want to know your way around to access it. We had a family meal on Saturday night here. It was 'ok'. The service was excellent and the staff were very efficient. The menu needs updating. A lot of what is on the menu is very lavish food... read more

I have been to Joel's on all sorts of occasions, family meals with my husband and son, couples nights, hen nights, big birthday meals etc and the service is always great. They have a nice selection of dishes and the food is served without delay. I have never been disappointed with food. Staff are very friendly too.

We booked a table for 7, including 4 children, for 6pm for a celebratory meal. We were asked to take a seat and would be called. By 6.30, it was clear we'd been forgotten and after some further delay a booth was cleared for us. Orders were taken and after more chasing our main courses arrived at 7.30. The children... More

The family like to go here because of the children so whenever we're all together in Dublin we usually end up eating here. If it wasn't for that I wouldn't come here. I am giving it average rating as it does cater for families and the staff are friendly enough and the portions large. The dining hall is exactly that,... More

Lovely food, great prices and service. I had steak which was cooked to perforation and a pasta dish which was lovely. Suitable for families, couples, friends, anyone! Easily accessible from the main road and definitely a must if staying at the Louis Fitzgerald Hotel.

Which is true portions are massive. I ordered "build your own burger" - grilled chicken fillet with pineapple ring, avacado & gruyere cheese chips included... Delicious!!! Hubby... More

I live local to this restaurant and have visted it frequently over the years, its always bustling with dinners. I don't think I have ever gotten a disappointing meal either. They have a large menu and cocktail menu!! On certain days of the week they do good offers for example on a Friday night they have a Ladies night and... More
