The Legal Eagle
Lunch features a daily roast-in-roll, Irish potato flatbreads (think bacon, cabbage & parsley sauce / think roasted squash, fig & honey / think smoked haddock brandade, fennel & duck egg!) and meats from our wood oven, traditional meat platters (hay-smoked ham, corned mutton, haslet, pickles) and delicious Seafood platters filled with the best from our coastal waters. Dinner adds roast bone marrow, rump heart, cauliflower rarebit and Shropshire Blue soufflé. There are 20 craft beers on tap, over 200 wines on a stellar list written with love and a small but considered and decidedly timeless classic cocktail list.

Lovely restaurant with wonderful friendly staff the food was nice but for me maybe there could have been a
Bit more choice the menu was reduced a bit I think but other than that a great restaurant
The Legal Eagle is easily one of the best gastro pubs in Dublin. It has a fanstastic selection of beers as well as draught beers that change regularly.
nice menu skillfully delivered with short but interesting wines by glass and well done cocktails
Super lunch with friends. Food was outstanding as always. Delicious open smoked salmon sandwich on brown with very tasty pea soup. Staff accommodating and hospitable, despite the trying Covid times we live in. Highly recommend.
Love the legal eagle... we went for dinner on Sunday, excellent as always. They’ve made some small adjustments to the space and are well able to handle the COVID-19 restrictions. Great neighborhood restaurant!
Loved the food. Very family friendly. Staff really attentive and helpful. We will be back!
Best jelly and icecream ever! Wonderful flavours and a great dessert for a coeliac like me. That alone would bring me back.
This is my second time at the legal eagle, the first time was pre-pandemic. Apart from the obvious differences now with social distancing, PPE and sanitizer etc there was no was no difference. The food was fantastic, very reasonably priced considering the quality of the food and the service was excellent with great selection of beers, ales and cocktails. I would highly recommend you try this place.
Amazing as always, delicious food (pork belly with Nduja croquettes and mackerel were unbelievable), social distance in place and high hygiene standards in place. Can't wait to go back, huge thanks for super attentive service from David and Ger.
Great food and service. The wine list was excellent and extensive. Great atmosphere
Amazing as usual! Can’t complain about anything, service, food and drinks are great!
Excellent service, food was outstanding although a bit pricey. Extensive wine list which again was on the pricey side. Would definitely visit again but have to be as a special treat.
Great food. Fantastic service. Excellent choice of beers.
The food was of very good standard and the pints were very tasty. Excellent service with friendly staff. Nice bar but unfortunately no atmosphere due to covid restrictions. i will definitely recommend it and would like to return post covid.
Best pies in Dublin. Good Guinness too. Recommended.
Rarely do I leave a review but we went for Sunday lunch and honestly had one of the best roast beefs I’ve ever eaten! Prawn cocktail was alright but overall great meal.
The waitress could not have been nicer (didn’t get her name but she was Italian) too, considering the weirdness of a Covid lunch out it was as warm and ‘normal’ as you could’ve wanted.
It’s not cheap but the pub is so nice and everyone was so helpful so totally worth it.
Creative and high quality food, fine and extensive selection of wines and beers. Quiet place with well trained and professional staff; would recommend for an event or a weekend escapade with close friends or family. Legal Eagle may be a pub but surely feels like more than just that..
Good good, service good but sadly there was very little atmosphere due to social distancing and some empty tables. All COVID protocols were very strong.
The food is out of this world! Staff friendly and helpful. I love going to the Legal Eagle, always a great experience.
Just a great place for a very tasty meal and lovely cocktails. Staff are very friendly and relaxed but super professional. Would happily go again.
Amazing food, Top notch wine selection and friendly staff and great service.
Great food and excellent service. Good measures in place for covid and very friendly staff.
Fabulous food. Atmosphere only ok but thats nothing to do with venue and all to do with Covid. Sheeps curd pannacotta was to die for!!!!! Will be back.
Great service, lovely restaurant and the food was very good. A little pricey potentially and could have done with one or two more choices per course for my liking, not much for vegetarians, but overall very good and would go back.
Service thoughtful given Covid.
Quality of food really good
Excellent Service and food.
Felt extremely safe. All staff wearing masks, keeping a safe distance and tables well spaced.
First meal out in months and it didn't disappoint. The food and wine was delicious and the Guinness gets a thumbs up too! Can't wait to go back!
Great food and drinks with attentive service. Overall enjoyable evening.
Fabulous dinner. Felt very safe and comfortable with all the precautions they had in place for covid 19. The staff are fantastic and so friendly. Great food and great evening had by all.
Great smoked chicken salad. Tidy pint. No hand made chips at lunchTime was sad but small price to pay for a COVID lunch. Masks on wait staff take some adjusting to but overall very nice indeed.
Very well managed by the staff considering current situation. Felt very safe and comfortable and close to the normal restaurant experience. Food as good as ever!
Excellent food and service, and meticulous observations of safety and hygiene Covid precautions. Will be returning!
A beautiful dinner and the host/staff were all very friendly.
Very pricy for what it was. Staff very helpful but food was poor.
Our favourite place in Dublin. Highly recommended!
Tremendous effort from the kitchen and staff on their opening evening. Top quality cooking at a good value neighbourhood menu price.
Our waitress was excellent. The restrictions were explained very well and in a very friendly manner.
Tried the potato flatbread with haggis. Wonderfully different. Great service also
Legal eagle food is old fashioned with a new twist. Chose the fish and cheese platters from the woodfire menu, including new & flavoursome twist on pickled eggs and pickled vegetables. The service was warm, informed and fun. The tables for two are a little cramped & neighbouring tables were loud so a bit more space would help.
With my friend, we have take 2 différents plate and the two are very good. It's a very good restaurant with good service
