we have been going to the elephant and castle for a long time and I have to say the Chicken wings are amazing. The portion is very big so don't have a whole portion as a starter as you'll be stuffed. The waiting staff are friendly. I love it .

Busy but not pretentious! Friendly staff and good menu. Chicken wings are fantastic and certainly not starter proportions! Pop in ask when they'll have a table for you then pop across the road for a pint of the black stuff! Simply enjoy!

I have been going to the Elephant and Castle for over 20 years. It's always excellent. I always order chicken wings. A Dublin institution. Hard to get a table though, which is frustrating but understandable

Great restaurant - have been eating there for over 25 years. It has great burgers and omelettes, and fantastic chicken wings. It also offers excellent high end cooking. It's a place for everyone. Hard to get into, and no booking policy.

Thank jim_culliton
