Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We had been to Anglers Rest on several occasions and were very happy with everything but last Sunday was disappointing. Service was really poor, there didn't seem to be any particular person allocated to looking after our table of three adults and three children. One...person seated us but didn't come back to take our order. After a long wait I had to ask the owner to have someone take our order. When our starters arrived my chicken wings were cold. The person who took our food order never returned to take a drinks order. When I eventually caught a servers attention the order she took was left sitting at the bar for 20 minutes before I caught another servers attention to drop the drinks to us. The mains were nice apart from my fillet steak which I ordered medium but was cremated. As service was so disappointing I would not have tipped much if at all but a 10% service charge was automatically added to the bill which I think is a bit rich when three of the party were children. Maybe the fact there was a wedding in the venue meant the service was poor. Maybe it was juts a bad day.More

The Angler's Rest was the perfect venue for our wedding. We were able to have our legal ceremony and our party all in the one beautiful place. The venue is stunning and the staff were phenomenal. So friendly and accomodating in every way. Agata, Betty...and Anna were particularly fantastic and we couldn't recommend it more as both a wedding venue and as a place to go for any other reason. It is a truly special place in Dublin - there is no where else like it. You feel like you are in another world!More

This is a real Dublin Gem, close to Phoenix Park and along the River Liffey with plenty of parking. Greeted with the smell of burning peat in an outdoor stove, the dining area is large with plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. The outdoor seating...is all in the sun so bring your caps/hats and sun glasses. Being a Wrights restaurant, the menu has a great mix of seafood, other meats and veggie dishes. We had prawns and crab claws in a delicious soup with brown bread, mushroom couscous, with greens and fries. It was the perfect amount of food for lunch. The staff were so friendly and helpful, it was a lovely way to spend a sunny Friday lunchtime. Highly recommend as somewhere romantic to bring a date, group of friends and business lunch!More

We recently had our wedding party in the Angler's Rest and had a brilliant experience. Agata, our wedding coordinator, and her team were all extremely helpful and flexible with the planning and so welcoming and friendly on the day. Our guests were very well looked...after the whole night and we had lots of people come back to us saying how relaxed and easy-going the staff made things. We went with a buffet option and late night snacks, and the food was really delicious. The venue looked beautiful and it was great to be able to welcome our guests to somewhere so warm and hospitable for a great celebration. Thanks Agata and team!More

We would consider ourselves regulars to here, we go for dinner approx every 6 weeks or so for the past year. We have had some amazing experiences and some not so amazing! The food is always lovely and I don’t think we could ever say...we had a bad meal but the service can be hit and miss depending on how busy the restaurant is. While the staff are always friendly and courteous when they are stretched a table for two can be left waiting! We went for dinner Saturday just gone and from what we could see there was 2 communions, 1 confirmation and a wedding going on all at the same time. We got our starters and mains fairly promptly but then waited 20 mins before we had to get the attention of staff to ask for the bill. In the 20mins waiting we were not offered a desert menu or additional drinks which we did intend to have. In my opinion on this occasion there did seem to be a lot of occasions being catered for which left us as a couple not high on the priority list, so maybe weekends are not ideal if your looking for a relaxed meal that flows well. Saying this the food is delicious, the ambience is lovely and The Anglers holds a special place in our hearts 😊More

Excellent food, excellent service. Friendly staff. Special thanks to Agata for helping to organize the meal. There was no problems at any stage of the evening and we were a large group and had three babies with us. The only issue i could mention is...that it is very warm in the restaurant. Always like that, regardless of when I’ve been. But all in all, Angler’s Rest is a gem and so nice to have it so local.More

Went here for lunch as live close by. The building and inside are really nice. I’ve been here before for a pint when out walking. This was my first time for Sunday lunch. I was disappointed with the quality and portions. The food was Ok....Nothing special. The service could have been better. They could do with a floor manager to manage the staff as many seemed to be engaged in local chats. Would I go back? Yes for drinks. No for food. Head to the mullingar house in Chapelizod for a Sunday roast. Better quality and price.More
