Friday night in Dublin at the Arc.......disappointing for food, no problem getting a table for 2 at 8.15pm but at a cost - very restrictive menu, starters of garlic mushrooms and goats cheese tartlet were good but mains menu special of seafood risotto and menu regular piri piri chicken burger were totally unremarkable, service was ok, staff attentive, ambience non-existent...

Quality steak cooked to perfection, with all the trimmings, promptly served by smiling waiting staff in a lovely well stocked bar - will definitely return

This is an amazing place, with good ambiance and nice staff. At Friday night this place is on fire and a must visit place for bachelor. Its not very expensive and worth visit one, but only on weekends.

Wouldn't have guessed it in Dublin, but the wings were spot on! Cold beer, good food, and great service. If you are staying at the Liffey Valley Clarion, try it.

We've been regulars in the arc over a number of years but it's gone downhill over the past 6 months. On a recent visit we arrived at 6 pm, by 6.20 a member of staff still hadn't arrived with menus, but as we had an idea of what we wanted we flagged a staff member to inform them. 7 pm... More
