Elephant & Castle - Temple Bar

It was years since I’d been to elephant and castle and wow I was so impressed all over again. I love this restaurant, it’s such a perfect size a real city gem. The staff were great, friendly and attentive. The food was exactly what I wanted. All so tasty and more-ish! Their wings are famous but I’d argue their ribs give the wings a run for their money, fall off the bone, succulent meat. Well done, I will return and recommend to others for sure
Hi Bronagh,, Thank so much for your fabulous feedback and for taking the time to leave us a review! We looking forward to seeing you again real soon. E&C TEAM
One of my favorite restaurants! I took my friends here that were new to the city and they loved it as well. Great food, friendly servers, and a nice interior!
Hi Lyndsey, We really appreciate you taking the time to leave us such a positive review and five star rating! Thank you so much and we look forward to seeing you again real soon! E&C Team
The food was really nice, and staff were very friendly. Service was very quick, which was ideal for the short lunch break I was on. Would definitely recommend!
Thanks Fionan, and hope to see you again real soon! E&C Team
The food is always delish but I always find the staff a bit stand-offish, very little interaction from them & a smile is seldom. Ofcourse we will return cos the wings are fab but would just like the staff to be a bit more friendly
Hi Sarah, it is a very unusual experience what you just shared. Our hard working staff wears mask during their shift thus this fact could have caused to misinterpret. Sorry to hear you weren't pleased with the staff. Hope your next visit will change your mind. Regards E&C Team
Great food very prompt service wasn’t too busy for a Sunday
Thanks a million Carmeld!
I've been to elephant and castle many times. I'm from Belfast and always look forward to getting the chicken wings when in Dublin. We arrived late for our table but we were able to still dine. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Food was amazing as always.
Thank you so much for the brilliant review, hope we gonna see you soon
Good food and outstanding service. Must go place in temple bar.
Thank you for the kind word looking forward to having you in future
Great food, great wine and friendly staff !!
We got the wings with a pesto & mozzarella burger with a side of fries and it was sooooo much food for the price we paid.
We also got a bottle of the Primitivo Salento wine and it was really tasty & fruity !!
We will be back for sure 😜
Thanks a million Luke We're glad you enjoyed everything E&C Team
Fabulous food for fabulous value and an extremely polite, welcoming and helpful staff.
Thanks so much Tracy
Great food great staff all very socially distanced and felt safe! Chicken wings amazing and coffee cocktail was just to die for ! We will be back
Thanks very much Tina
Eating out in COVID 19 times is a very different experience but they tried their best. All regulations were adhered to.
The service was brilliant, really nice friendly & helpful waiters. The food was good, I think the menu may be limited due to COVID. The chicken breast with mash was only ok but the lemon chicken was lovely. The deserts were really good especially the icecream with raspberries & passion fruit.
Thank you Maura for taking the time to leave such a kind review. As part of the "new now" we are taking great care to ensure our guests are safe and feel comfortable so it is fantastic to see that our efforts have paid off. I hope to welcome you back to Elephant and Castle in the near future! Kind regards, E&C Team
Great as alway. Thankyou...........................
Thanks a million! We look forward to seeing you dine with us again. E&C Team
I understand that we are in strange and changed times and that things arent the same but this experience in one of our favorite restaurants wasn't great. Requested window seat, via the app, but 4 of us tucked away in the corner. The food came out over 5-10 minutes not all at once, my wifes first, followed a few minutes later by mine and my daughters followed a few minutes later by my younger daughters...who ate a side of fries she was waiting that long.... Food was good but service wasn't great. Once the food was served the staff weren't interested, as i said we were tucked right in teh corner which seems like a no go area for the staff. My daughters were drinking sparkling water and diet coke...refills were included....but afetr the first coke refill nobody came back near us....Even paying was a misery for all concerned....i tried several times to get the bill from the staff but we eventually decided to get up an pay at the desk ...manager took my card placed it in the machine and walked away...left me to process the payment..i typed in my PIN... waited for a few minutes but he didn't return so i took my card and left...Don't think we'll be back, which is a pity as it was one of our favorite restaurants.

Amazing chicken wings and ribs. Staff friendly and helpful
Thanks a million E&C Team
Nice food, very crispy
Glad you enjoyed! E&C Team
My favourite place to go when visiting Dublin, excellent food, service and value every time. Highly recommended!
Thanks you Michelle
good ambiance, decent wings, good burgers, will visit again
Fantastic! I will be back again soon!!! Thanks again
Thanks a million
We had a lovely family dinner here. I made a wrong choice for main course I assumed the club sandwich would be served with warm filling but it was all cold. Without hesitation or drama the waiter asked if he could get me something else, I was slightly embarrassed as it was my mistake but he insisted he’d rather I be happy than have something I didn’t like. Excellent customer service we would definitely go back!
Great staff, great wings and great cocktails! We used open table to book which meant no messing on arrival with contact details. Felt safe and I would recommend
Excellent service and interactive. Thought our wait servers were brilliant, great recommendations and lots of fun to talk to. Food was excellent, we came for the wings but had mains and dessert too. Really enjoyable night.
Thanks Pat for the great review, we really appreciate you taking the time to leave us such positive feedback about your experience. I will pass your kind words on to the whole team here! E&C Team
Great to be back in the Elephant and Castle, the wings were fresh and delicious. The burger was really superb.
Thank you Sara for sharing your great feedback! E&C Team
Great wings. Was lunch on a Monday so quiet but overall decent
Thank you Eamon for rating us, hope we gonna earn five-stars next time! E&C Team
It’s the second time I’ve eaten here in the last few weeks.Apart from the chicken wings and fries (consistently good) the food is dissapointing. The last two times I have eaten here have been poor . The omelette was overcooked or microwaved and the Caesar salad was vervvery substandard . Maybe Thacker is just the Temole Bar franchise as I think the Beacon branch is better
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are sorry to hear your experience was not to our usual high standard and regret you did not flag these issues with a staff member on either of your visits. We would be very grateful if you would please contact us at Templebarmod@elephantandcastle.ie to discuss further your experience. E&C Team
Everything was very nice, lovely food and great service.
Thank you Sandra for your fabulous feedback and for taking the time to leave us a review! E&C Team

Best chicken wings in town!
We visit this place quite a lot, definitely recommended.
Hello Vivien, Thanks so much for the great review,we hope to see you again very soon! E&C Team
Brilliant with quick service
Thanks very much
Service was excellent and right level of attentive and privacy. Food was tasty. I do like e&c is consistent. It was nice to be eating out, the time constraint was off putting given that town is so quiet and we weren't buying the €9 min meal required to socialise.
Thanks for your feedback and sorry you didn't get to stay a bit longer E&C Team
Best food I have ever tasted and lovely staff and environment
Thank you so much Ciara.Delighted you enjoyed the whole experience! E&C Team

Hi AlexH, Our hard working staff really appreciate your kind words. See you soon E&C Team
I feel we were not 1 metre away from the table beside us, it was strange but times are strange at the moment, his college it is tough for this industry. I have Would be back again
Hi there. We have reduced our capacity by 50% so there should have been an excess of space around you table? Hope to see you again Thanks E&C Team
Burger buns were slightly burnt and my chicken goujons were also over done. Wings and chips were lovely!
Hi there and sorry to hear about your dissapointing experience. Please let us know in future while you are dining if there are any issues which can be very easily rectified. Thanks E&C Team
We have eaten there before but this time found chicken wings very dry and main courses were average for the price. But staff members were very attentive and friendly.
Thanks for sharing you feedback E&C Team
We are big fans of the wings and even bigger fans of the staff who are consistently brilliant!
Thanks a million Aisling
Wings are delicious
Humans was delicious
Pesto burger had a lot of pesto which made it difficult to consume
The stilton burger also had a large amount of stilton, as it's a strong cheese the amount over powered the taste of the burger.
Desserts were phenomenal!
Staff were incredibly helpful and attentive. Really lovely evening.
Thanks a million Aine E&C Team
Ottimo locale dove poter gustare le chicken wings condite in un modo speciale e unico.
Molte Grazie Andrea
My friend and I went for dinner and we were so happy with our experience. The food tasted amazing, especially the chicken wings and braised ribs! We ordered the chocolate icecream for dessert which truly made our days!
Thanks a million Laura. Always good to be part of a great day! E&C Team
