Rib eye steak was just fat more than marble, bad cut of meat. Small and at those prices just disappointing. Wife’s pasta not great either, pasta cooked well, but sauce very sharp. With so much competition there should be no need to turn out bad food. Only three mains, pasta, lamb or steak.... could do with a fish option

BANG did an excellent job managing the patrons during Covid. It didn’t feel too clinical but it felt safe and well thought out. The food was outstanding, the server who was also the hostess was an absolute delight - great recommendations and banter, good attention to us without being annoying. Would highly recommend the in-shell shrimp, their broccoli side in “seasar” dressing (strange recommendation I know but amazing), and one of their fresh house cocktails. Will definitely return.

My first outing since lockdown, and followed a suggestion for a special occasion. Didnt know what the new normal would be like, and was very pleasantly surprised, all the heath and safety boxes were ticked, but did not dominate the overall experience. This was mostly down to staff self confidence, they behaved as if they had been doing it for years in visors, and one soon forgot the strangeness of all that.

Staff really made the experience, friendly without being your NBF, knew their menu and communicated enthusiasm for the excellent food. (Nibbles, Starter and Mains for us)

In all, a every positive experience, I did not give 5 for value only because it was more "high end" than my normal outing not because the food was not worth it. Advice: You will enjoy every minute of your experience, but be sure it is within your budget range before booking.

Lovely atmosphere, felt very safe. Great service. Food was very tasty - the chocolate dessert with the raw milk sorbet was exceptional. The July menu on the day we visited, had gnocci as 2 of the 4 main course offerings; so a little more choice (as on the sample menu) would have been better, but thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

Initially were offered seating downstairs in an area which looked like a corridor and was very noisy. Advised we could be seated upstairs in approx 20 mins and we were given complimentary glass of prosecco. Upstairs lovely bright room. Prawns were extremely difficult to eat and were bad value. Otherwise the food was excellent presented well and was piping hot. Very friendly and pleasant staff.

Food was lovely. Staff attentive. My girlfriend and I started with some olives and croquettes to snack and went for the 2 and 3 course pre theatre menu which we thought was good value.

The €12 supplement for the ribeye steak was a bit much we thought, considering it came with just a small gratin to accompany it. Some veg would have been nice to go with it, so we ordered a side of cabbage which was very tasty and that was an additional €5.

The lamb gnocchi with an nduja sauce was very tasty and the lamb tender. We shared an Eton Mess for dessert which was by far the best dish and a great way to end our meal. It was absolutely delicious. Wine starts at €30 a bottle.

All in all, €150 (including tip) for a dinner for two with a bottle of wine isn't bad. But we have been to nicer restaurants for the same price and cheaper, so we propably won't return.

If someone asked me about it I would say it was nice, and I would not recommend them against it because I can't reeeeally fault it, but I would name a few other places I would go to first.

The restaurant is comfortable and relaxing without being pretentious (thankfully).
