The staff at The Merrion Hotel recommended this restaurant to us, so we went without knowing anything about it. When we arrived we were surprised at how high end it was, and weren't really dressed for the occasion. We had a large group and no one really knew what the food would be like, the menu was rather small. Although,... More

I flew into Bang on Merrion Row in the wake of a very blustery Irish wind a little while ago. My friend and I found the Mezzanine relaxed and inviting; the atmosphere was buzzy enough to stir up your Saturday night Spirit but not too loud to drown out a dinner conversation for two. Over our Kir Cassis, we decided... More

Went to bang last weekend having been there for a birthday party last December. This time just the 2 of us, we had no reservation on a busy Saturday evening but the host sorted a table for us within 5 minutes. The food was top notch again. We shared a warm carrot salad and cured seatrout (I think) dish to... More

We had a fun evening at Bang, sitting on the raised ground level. The energetic and charming Thelma took great care of us and managed to make us feel very welcome and give a personal touch to the service despite the restaurant being busy and Thelma obviously having lots to do. She'd be an asset to any restaurant. The food... More

I recently attended Bang with a group of 4 friends. We booked our table for 7 p.m. We were seated straight away and were left chatting for approx 15 minutes prior to ordering (which was not a problem) - however on ordering the waitress mentioned they would need the table back for another group later. Starters arrived shortly after -... More

Dear Anne, I am very disappointed to read your review, this is totally out of character for Bang, we would never continuously remind someone that they had a certain time to be out by and if it were the case that you were not finished we would always work try to work around the next booking to ensure you had...

We had a good night at Bang, but overall it wasn't great value. On the food side, the carrot starter (enthusiastically recommended by the waiter), was disappointing: four tiny baby carrots in a sea of very strong sauce that overwhelmed the two other elements of the dish. The cauliflower soup was beautifully presented, but in the end simply bland. The... More

My husband and I treated ourselves to lunch in Bang today. While the food was very good we were both left disappointed by the overcharge on two pre lunch glasses of prosecco. When questioned, the waiter said the error was simply that the dinner price was mistakenly charged for the lunch price. (i.e. 8.95 per glass as opposed to 5.95... More

Some work colleagues and I visited Bang restaurant last week. Everything was gorgeous from start to finish. I had an amazing starter that pretty much consisted of carrots, more carrots, corriander and hazelnuts and it was gorgeous!! How can they make a plate of carrots so nice..? seriously impressed. My colleagues had a range of dishes from tuna, to octopus... More
