Serving brunch in Monkstown Saturdays and Sundays 12am-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.

Food was not bad but can be better. Service was too slow but very polity and well mannered. Prices are still reasonable for Dublin.

Lovely evening, only thing think the wine is way over priced, should have a choice of a house wine.

Hi, Thank you for the feedback, we actually have our house wines listed as the first red and first white on the menu, but I have communicated to the team that this needs to be clearer for customers. We hope to see you with us again in the future. Best wishes, E&C Management

The pace of the service was awful.
We ordered the wings as a starter for two adults, two mains (salad and burger) and two kids meals (pasta with tomato sauce and chicken & chips).
The wings arrived 3 minutes after we ordered and were fine.
We had to wait a further 40 minutes for the mains and the kids' meals, which is a huge challenge with hungry 4 and 5 year olds.
The staff hadn't a clue what was going on and were more concerned at taking care of take away customers, who as they arrived seemed equally dismayed with the level of service.
Extremely overpriced for sub-standard food. We'd have got better service and value from McDonalds, in fact, I'd be happier giving my money to McDonalds given how deplorable an experience this was.
Overall a very expensive and frustrating visit - I couldn't recommend avoiding this place any more...

Hi, Thank you for taking the time to review your experience with us. We are so sorry to hear your meal was disappointing. With regards to pre-cooked burgers, new HSE regulation was released stating it is now against guidelines to pre-cook any beef products so we can assure you our burgers are freshly cooked.

Our first visit in a lone time and really enjoyed it. Tables very well spaced out (Covid 19) with lots of sanitiser available. Food was delicious and staff couldn't have been nicer. Really friendly, chatty and very appreciative of having customers back in the restaurant. Will definitely return and highly recommend.

Hi Jason, I am very sorry to hear about your experience. I have spoken to the team that worked on Saturday to ensure this does not happen again.

Overall we had a good experience. The waitress forgot some things, like a glass of water that my friend had asked for, and there was a menu board which was advertising a risotto which wasn’t available at that time of day. It seemed strange that they wouldn’t just put the board down / away while that food wasn’t available.

The kitchen forgot to make one of our sides, but it arrived eventually and the food was all very nice. However, possibly due to COVID-19, the prices were pretty steep for what you got, and my friend paid €3.80 for a Diet Coke!

Nice food and friendly staff but prices were on the steep side, and they seemed to have no problem advertising food that they weren’t serving.

Thank you for taking the time to review us, we appreciate all feedback. I am sorry to hear you were interested in the Risotto dish, this is served every evening from 4:30pm and lunch Mon- Fri, the board was from the night previous if you dined Sat brunch, I am sorry the team did not relay this information correctly. Our soft drinks prices reflect free refills which is stated on our menus. We do hope you can come back some evening, enjoy some Risotto alongside many soft drinks :) The team at E&C
