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

Reviewed June 16, 2013

Ask for a table so you do not have to sit at the cushions near the window "with your legs under you", very uncomfortable

Thank you for your review, indeed, the opium tables can be uncomfortable for tall people especially, however, they are very popular.

Thank you very much for your review and the 5 stars, just to let you know we also have the Spice Bar Asian Tapas menu on the ground floor, you can have the same dishes but individually, very handy if you just want to pop in for a bite and a beer.

“Very different....in a good way.”
Reviewed June 1, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant was found by me about three years ago by accident, there were 6 of us in temple bar looking for a good place to eat, we had the tasting menu, lots of interesting dishes, really nice, really sensational from a taste point of view, service was great too, been back about 5 times since, love it, but much better with a group of people as you get more dishes, great little place ....................... ......................... ..................................
