    Brought 5 kids here. Staff couldn’t have been nicer, despite it mainly being a table of kids. They all adored their food, said the chips were especially good! All said they wanted to come back really soon. So couldn’t fault it for a cheap&cheerful simple family meal!

    Food and cocktail was amazing, unfortunately the service was not the best. We were waiting a long time before approached for drinks. Then our food came before our drinks. We had to catch our servers attention for dessert menus and were left a long time before our plates were cleared. We only had one drink as we weren't offered another.

    We were waiting almost 45 mins for our formed for just 4 people, and there were only 2 other tables inside. Outside wasn't too busy either so no idea why we were waiting so long for sandwiches, omelette and French toast. Staff were lovely and friendly, food was tasty but just seemed a very long time to wait at 4pm on a Saturday.

    First of all we were freezing cold and asked for fans to be turned off this was done but then front door was opened and so the draught continued by the end of the meal we were wrapped up in jackets etc couldn’t wait to get out of there…it’s not a pleasant dining experience when your cold for the entire time! Soup was ordered and we asked for it to be extra hot, a Caesar salad was ordered with extra bacon instead of chicken - the soup arrived and had to be sent back it was barely warm and the salad arrived with neither bacon or chicken so had to be sent back. The restaurant was not that busy but the service was so slow the wait for starters and main course was ridiculous when we ordered drinks that also took forever for them to be served to us. It was a very disappointing experience overall as we have been there before and enjoyed but we wouldn’t be going back again after this time.

    The starters were delicious... full of flavour but the mains were disappointing especially my over cooked burger and a very dry bun. It was a Friday and they seemed to be a bit overwhelmed even though the restaurant wasn't full.

    Not bad, front of house staff were pleasant but need some training. Took 15 minutes for a beer to arrive & only after asking for the 3rd time. Told soup of the day was Carrot & it was mushroom. Food was generally ok, some items great value (kids) & some overpriced (lamb). Chicken wings were good. For some reason turned the music up too loud half way through bit did turn it down after a request. Overall not bad & the problems are east fixes.

    Staff were fab. Weird smell in the restaurant when we arrived. Unfortunately vibe wasn’t great as the place was empty. All other restaurants in that location full and buzzing. There was no need to pre book. My French toast was cold. Far too much cinnamon and personally like it to be crispy. It was soggy. Coffee cold but hotter when we requested a second cup. Overall disappointing. But staff lovely.

Main courses good but could serve more vegetables with Lamb main course. Deserts very good. Music far too loud. Overall though a rally good experience

    25 minutes to cook burgers should probably be written on the menu.. a bit late to tell us after we’ve ordered them. Chicken wings were full of veins (every single one) which was really disappointing. Veggie burger was also disappointing, very very dry. And food was expensive. Overall it was okay, nothing to write home about.. wouldn’t go again

    A lovely meal, as always. Service excellent. Unfortunately we were seated beside a table full of selfish mothers who let their children run wild. Very loud and ruined the night to be honest. I don’t blame the kids or the staff who are always great. Incredibly selfish behaviour from the mothers. They were oblivious to the other diners. Disappointing.

    WE went on Easter Saturday and hadn't been in a while. The crowd, as it was [restaurant was not busy] was young and fairly noisy, but they were just having a good time. The music was too loud given the scarcity of guests to cushion the sound. The lightling was too bright and as the place was so quiet, the basic bright wooden furniture gave the dining area the feel of a canteen rather than a restaurant that is comparable on price to the other Monkstown eateries. The fiid was good and the staff made up for any other issues noted by their overall freiendliness and helpful manner. Next time we will pice a busier weekend.

    Pasta was microwaved, almost burned but also undercooked - quite impressive that someone can cook pasta that badly. Omelette was thrown together with little care. I’ve had the exact same food in the Rathmines branch and it’s prepared with much more care and respect. I asked for the plates to be cleared away and only one dish was taken, the rest was left there, even as we had our desert. Surprising poor experience here. Won’t be going back to this branch.

    On arrival there was a sewage smell , and should of known that was not a good sign . Have always loved elephant castle in temple bar , but sadly this was a massive disappointment. Venue wasn’t busy but team were busier talking to each other than taking care of their customers . Food was over priced and underwhelming . Burger was burnt and not good Wings were the only good thing about the place but portion was small . Lazy presentation and the mustard served with the small charcuterie board was too strong ! With two small pieces of bread was not good. Except the feedback and do better otherwise your customers will not return as I will not .

    It took 3 reminders to the staff for your pre dinner drink & eventually got them 20 minutes later. The blue cheese and bacon burgers were dreadful. Big lumps of cold blue cheese sarved on a bun - we had to ask for them to be heated - when they came back they were barely like warm. Burgers were always great but this time they failed miserably. A very disappointing experience…..

    The service was friendly, they were clearly under staffed but who isn’t at the moment? The food was average. As a vegan the lack of options across all press up venues is tiring. I was told i could have the veggie burger but not the bun so I opted to add it to a salad but I had to pay for two main courses in full, even though there was an option to add a chicken for a small supplementary fee.
