This restaurant was the perfect ending to our day in Dublin. We stopped on our walk back from central Dublin to our B&B (Ariel House). I say perfect because the atmosphere, food, and service were all excellent... and the price. We went with 2-course special for €25 and it was delicious. Ellen (?) waited on us and provided tips for... More

Friendly welcome, comfortable surroundings, good table and helpful Canadian waitress. We both went for the fillet steak, excellent and cokes to perfection for both our tastes. The waitress recommended the wine which was lively and all in all seemed good value.

We stopped in here by chance and were delighted! Our waitress was kind, accommodating and attentive. We went for the special sirloin dinner with some extra sides for more tasting. It was cooked to perfection - tender and flavorful - it did not disappoint. But honestly, my favorite part of the meal was the broccoli. I don't know what they... More

I have been a number of times for dinner here and always come away satisfied and praising this place. Yesterday we had a late lunch and again the quality of food and service is the best. It's such a pleasure to return to a place you remember as being on a high level and to find it hasn't gone down... More

Have been there many times on business. I could recommend all dishes in this restaurant.... with special attention to the fish table as a starter and the surf n turf.

This place is simply fantastic, the food the atmosphere. Steak is best I've ever had, service is top notch!

Eating here really makes you feel like a local. The waitstaff is extremely friendly and welcoming. This is away from the tourist scene which is nice. The lamb was out of this world. If we ever go back we are doing the meat for 2. I even got a free pint when they poured too many for another table!

We visited the Chophouse for my husbands birthday and I cannot recommend it enough! The food was sublime with every single mouth full being packed full of flavour and beautifully presented. Each dish was expertly crafted with the flavours and textures perfectly entwined to deliver a superb meal.. The goats cheese and crispy squid starters were beautiful and the main... More

Party of 7 of dined here on a Saturday night. With the prices, one would expect that the food would be the best however 3 of us ordered the scallops. One person got the normal size scallops however two others got much smaller scallops. 4 ordered the house special of surf and turf. 2 of the steaks were overcooked. Two... More

Came here with my wife, her sister and a selection of nephews and nieces. I cannot speak more highly of this restaurant and it's staff. Fantastic food (I had the chili squid followed by the steak - both of which were fabulous.) Others had lamb and duck and these were equally as good. Yes, the price is a little on... More
