25 euro for three decent courses was great. The desserts left a bit to be desired but the main course and starters were delicious. They gave very generous helpings for the starter and main but the dessert seemed to try to be more pretentious and not succeed. Overall enjoyed the experience

I used to love this place, and would go at least one a month when I'm in Dublin. I think they changed the chef, starters were awful, hard teeth breaking bread served to my friend with his pate, I had some kind of salmon starter it was awful served in pastry or something like that. steak was chewy, please serve...

Well... really not much more to add. Well... maybe the restaurant's proximity to a pub next door, which meant that the loungy jazz vibes were completely outgunned by next door's traditional Irish folk music, including manic flute playing. The two establishments share kitchen, and the food going next door looked nicer and flowed quicker than our higher priced menu. The... More

Beautiful relaxing atmosphere. Chill and relaxed and a bit elegant! Nice to sit at the bar and have drink. Soft music plays and and you can still hear your company talk. Bar staff are very attentive and professional. Good for a romantic date or a intimate dinner and drinks with friends kind of place. Love the Bailey's coffee.

Had an early evening meal after a visit to "The Illusionists" and was pleased with all aspects of the restaurant. Competent and friendly service combined with an adequate flavoursome meal. The crubeens had flavour and the side of apple really set them off. The fish batter was very light and enjoyable. For price and service you could not complain. Will... More

I had heard and read a lot about Le Bon Crubeen, mostly how wonderful the food, service and atmosphere was. My wife, daughter and I went yesterday and had the lunch time set menu, which is extremely good value. The staff were very attentive and helpful. The food came very promptly and was good, warm and tasty, without excelling. The... More

I'm hoping that I just went on an off night but: Ordered Coors Light, got Heineken! Shouldn't have been a problem EXCEPT, It was sold to me as Coors! Soup was nice, except for the pleasant company of the swarm of Fruit Flies. Move table, hoping that would be the end of the flies. EH NO! They came back, must... More
