Myself & my partner have returned to Darwins on a number of occasions. I have also introduced family members to Darwins. I am partial to the 10oz fillet steak and my partner has tried the T bone on a number of occasions and is very fond of the mash potato and extra helpings.

A lovely girl waited on us on Saturday and ran through the specials and soup of the day, we are always guaranteed a lovely evening out.

Best filet mignon in Dublin! Melted in my mouth. Definitely will be back here on my next trip to the Emerald Isle. Although I booked with Open Table they use ResDiary exclusively for reservations.

Excellent dinner. Everyone made us feel very welcome and was friendly. Our steaks were cooked exactly the way we hoped they would be. So glad we found this place and will be back on my next trip to Dublin!

Great ambiance and theme. Steak was tender but not worth cost. Overall food lack flavor from bread, soup, and chicken. Do not get mash as it tastes canned.

Terrible cuts of beef. If you like gnarly, chewy and grisly cuts of beef.... this place is for you.

Move on.....

We was a party of eight People who had dinner on this restaurant , saturday 27 of april 2019. We ate different kind kind of filet and meat from ox? Many of these beefs could have been better, but they were Perfect warmed. It was meny waitres teht served us and they were running dast between tables. They were very stressed?Maybe they wrer unbdersatffed?

Maybe it was Language misunderstanding s, but they forget a bottle of vine that i ordered.

Was it Worth the releativly high price? Maybe. I would like to try it again.

Lovely welcome. Romantic table for two. 10/10 for presentation of food. We both had soup to start. Delicious. My hubby asked for more bread because it was so morish. He had the steak next which was cooked to perfection. He couldn’t finish it all (probably due to the bread). I had duo of fish. Faultless. So tasty. Friendly attentive staff. Reasonable priced. Definitely recommend it.

Our food was excellent throughout, my risotto was exquisite, and the wine was good quality too.

Staff were very friendly and polite and our whole dining experience was top-notch.

A very good, relaxing ambiance too inside the restaurant.

Always a great place to go for a warm welcome and top quality, home produce.

We love coming to Darwin's when we are in Dublin. Delores and Amy, the mother/daughter owners always welcome you with such warmth and graciousness. Yiu feel like you entered thier home for a dinner party. Their staff is equally fantastic si you are well taken care of. And the food is delicious. Will continue to come here whenever we are in Dublin!!!

My second time at this restaurant, it is safe to say not anytime soon again. First time was great with the boys, but the second time with my wife for our anniversary was not so much. The waiter was extremely slow and got our order wrong as well - on more than one item! Steak was really mediocre at best! My wife had the Ribeye on the bone and it was very chewy and the same for my Striploin. Sorry Darwins, for you prices the quality should be much better I am afraid.

The mushroom soup was excellent!! My husband enjoyed his steak and I liked my chicken. A local person in Dublin recommended Darwin’s. It did not disappoint us. Great meal.
