Great meat restaurant- you can choose your meat before it's cooked for you but don't bring vegetarian friends

Whenever I am in Dublin (a half a dozen times a year) I make it a point to stop at the Chop House. I LOVE this restaurant. I stopped here the first time after seeing a segment on Anthony Bourdain's, No Reservations. I liked the interview with the owners, Kevin Arundel and his wife, and I liked what they were... More

I was there on Monday evening and can confirm that a visit to the Chophouse is the best way to start your week! The staff are engaging, professional and funny, the food is well thought out, well sourced and beautifully cooked and the steaks deserve their star billing. I love this place. My mission for 2017 is to make wheaten... More

First time visit during mid week for dinner...hadn't come across this restaurant despite being in Dublin since May 2016, so a really good find esp as it's not in the City centre- a 10min cab ride out towards Lansdowne Road area. Food doesn't disappoint & was excellent- they're even coma around with the tray of meat to tempt you into... More
