Description: Chameleon in Temple Bar is an intimate, ambient restaurant that specialises in Indonesian rice-table (set menus) as well as a large selection of tapas dishes with the flavours of South East Asia, from Javanese short rib to our super tasty steamed bao to free range chicken satay to our delicious desserts, all made in-house! Since opening in 1994, its owners, husband and wife team, Carol & Kevin have made a point in using as much locally sourced Irish produce as possible, including only using free range Irish chicken and locally caught, seasonal Irish fish.Chameleon is ideal for a romantic get together or indeed, for your birthday party or Christmas party, as they can cater for groups of up to 40 in our private dining rooms. 100 Best Restaurants in Ireland 2013 - 2017

Ate there recently with friends.I wasn't impressed.My first experience of this type of cuisine so I have to allow for that.I left hungry,poorer and never likely to return,the atmosphere was good and the service very attentive otherwise a thoroughly forgetable experience.

Really amazing food but a bit disappointed with the service and atmosphere. I was so excited to take my sister here but for most of the evening were sat down stairs alone whilst a large party went on upstairs. It meant we had to ask to order drinks and food rather than anyone coming to our table which was a bit annoying. Food however was served fairly quickly. My advice, ask to sit upstairs, but if not it is still worth it for the food and would also book in advance.

My daughter told me this was a 'must do' - so we did!! Amazing experience (similar to Tapas) and excellent food. Very friendly & smooth service....I wish the Irish Sea wasn't in the way so that I could re-visit (often)!!
