Popped in here recently with friends just for a light lunch and glad we did. This busy eatery in Temple Bar doesn't disappoint. Busy at lunchtime- a great sign- and serving amazing wings, I can't wait to come back for full dinner!!

In my opinion Elephant and Castle is one of the best places to eat in Dublin! I visit the restaurant on a regular basis and I never leave disappointed. From the gorgeous chicken wings to the great burgers and omelettes you're guaranteed to have a great meal. The staff are always really nice and chatty as well. A must visit!

If you want a substantial breakfast it's worth the walk. French Toast, Eggs and Bacon, Greek Yogurt; Good Coffee. Mellow on a Thursday Morning..

Very nice experience. Good food, friendly and fast service. The portions are generous. They have a good choice of beer and wine. We had the burger, lamb, crêps and espresso. And, everything was top notch. Especially the crêps. Looking around us we saw that most people were having their famous chicken. So I guess that would be a good choice... More

Highly recommended for a fantastic meal. The chicken wings were described to me as "the best in town".... I agree - they were super. The grilled chicken dish with mashed potato and olives was delicious.

Food is top class! I'd recommend calling and booking a table. It can get busy! Some of the staff(one woman in particular) were quiet rude! Otherwise, amazing

Arrived at E&C tonight (16/04/17) just before 7pm. Although it was busy, there was only the 2 of us so we were seated quite fast. The server that looked after us took our food & drink order 45 mins later we had not got as much as our drink. The server came to our table noticing our lack of everything... More

This is a real treat, chicken wings are delicious and had the club sandwich which was so tasty. Service was very good and quick. Worth the drive to Dublin for Elephant & Castle
