    My wife and I dined on a Saturday night at 7. Really nice food and great service. Kept getting visited by the staff to make sure we had everything we needed. Only challenge was the small size of the table but the staff made it work. The business got details right like the temperature of the wine and food. The staff got the advice regarding the quantities of tapas right. My wife enjoyed a nice cocktail at the end. All in all good value for money.

    We went to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday, the service was amazing, we ordered a paella in advance, it was delicious, the sangria best in Dublin, the tapas are identical to the ones in Spain and the food is very good quality and fresh, particularly the seafood. Thank you so much, especially to Adele.

    I felt the portions were pretty small even for a tapas size and the price and quality did not match up for a few of the dishes (i.e. patatas bravas were not good).

    Dined at 6.45pm. Exchequer was not very busy. Service was attentive and excellent. All taps were very good - as was the recommended house wine. Another very good experience at Exchequer. Probably a little pricey - but seems to fo with the territory these days.

    Portions were way too small. I eat tapas regularly and was disappointed with the choice and the portion sizes. Menu needs to be more self explanatory. The food was disappointing I’m sorry to say. More of a wine bar I would say.
    The Exchequer Wine Bar - RanelaghResponded on 25 August 2023
    Hi There, Thank you for your review and sorry we didn't meet your expectations. On Tuesdays and Wednesdays we run are midweek tapas menu 3 dishes for €19.95 which we feel is great value considering how expensive it is to buy the raw materials. If you would like to come in and try our full menu so we can show you just how good are tapas are, all made in house by our Spanish chef Jose. Please contact us and ask for myself and i will look after you. I hope you have a lovely weekend. regards Peter
