“Great meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

this is the place to go if you like steak, they really know what they are at here. Loved it-definitely recommend. Also, go on an empty stomach, as you will leave completely stuffed!!

“dessert chef's selection -yummi :)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

For a starter we had fish cakes and baby calamari- nice.
For a main I had veal and my friend had Wicklow Lamb- both good but her was better. My veal was a little to chewy.
For dessert we order plate for 2, chef’s selection. there was sorbet, cheesecake, brownie, warm plum...and few more- great presentation :>
These three dishes were the perfect portion.

“Another great meal at Darwins”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

One of Dublin’s best steak restaurants, service is always good and staff are welcoming. A little on the pricy side, but the quality is excellent. We've been to this restaurant a number of times and never been disappointed.

“Very accommodating and lovely food as well”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

It been a while from the last time I was in Darwin's and the last time i was here I said I must go back to see if it was just a one off good experience. Well I have to say it was better that the last time. I was here last Thursday night for dinner and I had to change my eating time to an earlier time which was not a problem. I also asked for a quite seat as I was with friends from Australia. We were seated straight away and our waiter took our order which we were not waiting to long before food. I had Steak like everyone else and everyone loved it. The whole experience was excellent and good value for money. I will be back
