“If you haven't been here, try it?!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

Visited the restaurant mid-week last week for dinner & there was a great atmosphere in the place. The choice of starters was a little disappointing...we were looking for something to have rather than having to make a choice. Saying that, the choice of main and dessert courses was great. We both had steaks and they were melt-in-the-mouth. Nice salad and food portions were of a size that you weren't 'stuffed' afterwards. We had the individual portion pavlova and the ice cream selection (the one with Elderflower & Berry in it) and both of us said they were possibly the nicest desserts we ever had. 3 courses, with 2 drinks the bill came to €87 which was good for a really nice evening out.....but they should definitely consider broadening the starter menu.

“3 courses for €20 - great value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

I've eaten at Electric a few times and have to say the early bird menu 3 courses foe €20 is great value. Good selection to choose from. Would recommend to those looking for something trendy in the city centre

“Great save and Great Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

We drove down from Dublin in part for a romantic evening at Oysters. Oysters was a disaster but WOW we were saved by ELECTRIC Restaurant As foodies who love quality seafood we were wowed both by the food and by the staff. A huge call out to both Odhran and Wayne who were amongst the best servers we have met. What was great was that Odhran knew what we were asking for and made sure that he had the team help him deliver on than service. The food was extraordinary and better than we expected. Don't waste your money on Oysters when a much better alternative exists

“Over rated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

We found this place over rated, I had a rib eye steak which was very disappointing for what it cost, Overall the food was just OK and over priced. Staff were fine, atmosphere is good but i suspect mainly because it was a warm evening. It is trendy and popular but like everything else with this tag that's the only attraction.

“Trendy and popular spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

My colleague and I were recommended this place and were not disappointed. It was a very warm evening and it was busy, but we opted for a table in the bar rather than waiting for the restaurant and had the board menu. The boards are all 9.50€ and very good, I had the fish board and was very pleased with it.
