I have visited Le Bon Crubeen a number of times over the years and this review will be a overview of all the occasions. The restaurant itself is not huge but comfortably spacious. The tables are well spaced meaning conversations are easy to maintain and noise levels are mid to low. The food at Le Bon Crubeen was always of... More

First time visiting this establishment. Online reviews looked and picture of set table with linen. Reality was somewhat different. Gastropub without the linen and a paper napkin. Tables are crowded together and many customers are there just for a drink. Definitely not fine dining but with fine dining prices. My starter was the scallops which was quite tasty but it... More

I've eaten here many times with family and friends and it has become my local "old reliable". Even when it's busy, the staff manage to fit us in, and are always pleasant and efficient. The range of dishes is very good, with several meat, fish and vegetarian options. Anything I've had has been well cooked and well presented. The Early... More

I had read a lot of reviews on this place and i was really looking forward to trying it out. Myself and my partner had received a groupon gift so we decided to book in for a Saturday evening.

Dropped in for the Early Bird. Two courses €19.95. Excellent value. Both starters and mains were tasty and the portions were just right. The service was friendly and efficient. Lovely relaxed atmosphere. I would have no hesitation recommending this restaurant.

Could have been because we were seated next to the stairs to the kitchen and washrooms. Food was delicious and better than I was expecting. My salmon was perfectly crispy on one side and not overcooked. Very very well prepared. Worth a visit to this place if you are looking for a good value restaurant.

Been to this restaurant a number of times as its close to work. I was never overly impressed in the past but I think it has greatly improved recently. The service has really picked up and staff were very attentive and friendly. There is plenty to choose from on the menu and everyone in the group was impressed with their... More

While visiting family in Dublin my Uncle invited us to dinner here. The staff were great, engaging and professional. Food was very good, the Lamb was amazing. I also enjoyed the "Crubeen" starter. We had a very good wine at surprisingly good value. I will definitely go back again.
