This was perfect for a casual lunch with friends. The staff were lovely. The food was tasty & we all loved the lunch box idea - there were so many options to choose from - all 4 of us were very happy with our choices. Will go again.

Service was absolutely brilliant, our waitress ( really sorry can’t remember her name) was really friendly and polite. The food was also great, the yellow curry was very tasty. Will definitely recommend to friends!

Trendy, funky vibe, this place is excellent value just off Grafton Street
If you're around the Grafton Street area of Dublin and you're looking for a reasonable place to eat that wont break the bank, go to Alfies. It's just off Grafton Street on South William Street, about a 3 minute walk from the centre of Grafton Street. It's a quirky restaurant full of young people. It serves great food and amazing cocktails. Five of us long time friends went for dinner on a Monday night and all cocktails are Euro 5 all night!!! Early bird Menu - Apres Work Menu is 19.95 and you choose on a 1, 2,3 basis, 1 - The Starter, 2 - the Main, 3 - the Side accompanying your Main.. Between us we had starters of tempura prawns, beautifully cooked, satay chicken with amazing satay sauce Mains chosen were, Thai curry, totally wonderful (choose your own protein, chicken, beef prawns), sesame salmon, cooked to perfection, served on mashed potato, and seabass wonderful. Sides chosen ranged from sticky rice, to fries and sweet potato fries and side salad. Everyone thought their food was delicious. There is also a full a la carte offering is also very reasonably priced. House wines 23 Euro to 27 Euro a bottle. Service is excellent, place is spotless, well worth a visit. Be aware, as it does say it on the menu, that all starters mains and sides all come together on the same plate

Food great. Atmosphere great. Only sticking point for me was drinks were a little slow and staff were pretty quick to take starters away. Noone asked if we were finished them before they were cleared away. Other than that. Very good.

Really poor service and food was bland. Starters and mains were mixed up and we were over charged when presented with the bill. Meal quality was extremely poor for the amount charged per dish. Would definitely not go again or recommend to a friend.

Issue we had was no kids menu, we had 3 adults and 2 kids. We were told that although no kids menu we would be given child's portions however we were charged full price for all 5. 2 Cocktails included and 3 course meal for all 5 cost 220 euro which is ridiculous for 5 people. I said nothing as just won't return. This was our favourite restaurant up until now but value for money shocking.. The Lasagne was like a brick. Rest of food was nice but again telling you kid's portions and charging you full whack is not on.
feel free to reach out to me if any further questions

A really cool place to hang out and to grab some food and cocktails with your friend! I definitely would return to try more dishes as I've only tried the Chicken Caesar Salad in my last 2 visits. Staff were very attentive but not over-bearing. I booked a table for an advance surprise birthday dinner for my friend who was already seated when I arrived. However, as soon as I got in they greeted me with a Happy Birthday - I wasn't able to correct them as they brought me to the table and I didn't want to ruin the surprise to my friend about it. I think they assumed it was my birthday and asked for my ID to check if it really is and never mentioned anything about my request during our stay. I was the only one they asked for ID. It would be great if they are more attentive on requests such as this, and more subtle when confirming too but overall, we enjoyed the food and the service even though the people on our next table were very loud and disruptive.

Valentine’s Day 💕 - the staff are lovely and want to do all they can to make sure your okay. It was Valentine’s Day so we were all crammed into the back of the restaurant and we were against the wall where the servers walked by so we got the odd knock every now and again. Little bit over priced for soft drinks - a coke is 250ml bottle - smaller than a can €3.30 a bottle - my potato skins were really hard at the bottom and were a little tasteless and my Mac and cheese was cold - I’ve been to Alfies before and I could not fault the place - that’s why we went back for Valentine’s - but it just seemed like it was a bit get people in, get them fed quickly and get them out, environment. I would go back on a normal day but never on a day like Valentine’s Day again.
