Serving brunch in Monkstown Monday to Sunday 10am-4:00pm!

We’ve spread our wings even further. From Temple Bar, to Rathmines. . . early 2019 saw our doors open in Monkstown.

We’ll be serving the same delicious menu with all of the Elephant & Castle favourites including wings, caesar salad, and of course our juicy burgers.

    Visited with adult with mobility issues and staff very helpful. Manager attentive to our needs. Accessible toilet available. Staff very efficient and pleasant and friendly. 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.

    Very slow service. 30min wait for chicken wings for starter and 40min wait for main course. Burgers cremated and dry for main course and had to be returned to kitchen. Manger left waitress to deal with food being returned.

    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.
