Service was great up in the bar but downstairs our drink came after our meal did I think the drinks should be at the table before the food in order for when the food comes that the customer has there drinks already that was the only thing the food was delicious and staff was friendly and helpful

4 of us went for dinner in Alfie's and the food was excellent, we shared Nachos and prawns as starters and each got something different for the mains and all was delicious, the service was excellent and it was perfect for what we were looking for, would highly recommend this place for a group or even a couple.

Chicken wings were cold, first drink took about 20 minutes we got out starter before our drink. Rib of roast beef was dry and tasteless, followed by a terrible mohito that tasted like water. For been advertised as a cocktail bar the staff don't seem very skilled mixologists.

Great place to eat! We love the music and the overall atmosphere! Its cosy and romantic yet vibrant! We have celebrated our engagement here and anniversaries as well as date nights! Very friendly staff especially the gentleman with the beard in the navy suit, very professional and pleasant! Will be back time and time again!

As a group of 7 ladies we had a fab afternoon in Alfie's. Sat in one of their booths it was cosy & we all could communicate with ease. The restaurant was busy and there was lots of chat going on. Two good menus to choose from. One A la Carte & the other a sampling menu where you chose 3 options which were all delivered at the same time. I thought when I saw the platter that there would not be enough food but there was plenty for lunch & all for €10!! Great value. I ate from a la carte & started with very delicious spicy wings & had steak & salad for mains. Sadly my steak was over cooked for me but still edible & for the Parmesan leaf salad I would have preferred my Parmesan sliced rather than crumbed. Just a little thing 😃 As none of us looked like we were going to have dessert our very attentive manager delivered a brownie with candle for the birthday girl. This is a great little restaurant & we look forward to booking a Xmas lunch there real soon.

Over all my experience was terrible.


Firstly myself & 3 friends arrived at 10:10pm & asked your staff member on the door (male, tall & dark haired) if Alfie’s still served food and if a table was available, he replied with no sorry nothing available tonight, Only until 5 minutes later i went onto my opentable app to see alfie’s had several tables available at that time. I booked through open table for a table available at 10:30pm. Arrived back at Alfie’s at 10:25 and there was a girl at the door which had also witnessed the man refusing us a few minutes before, i told her i had a booking and her face dropped as mine would too if that was me working there!

We were seated and order had been taken by a waitress who didn’t quite understand our order too well and seemed to get frustrated!

One thing i will say is the food was really quick and really nice, just a pity about our over all experience, definitely won’t be recommending alfie’s to anyone anytime soon!!

I ate here on Sunday. I'm a coeliac so I had a look at the website which said there were coeliac options available. I ordered a starter which was fine and asked if I could get a burger for a main. The burger came out with chips which to pointed out to the waitress. She removed th chips and asked did I want vegetables. I said no because I don't want a plate of vegetables. I then had a piece of meat with bacon and cheese and a few pieces of lettuce which was fairly disappointing. For dessert I asked about the chocolate Sunday minus the brownie pieces. I was brough out a bowl of plain ice-cream. When I paid I was charged full price for an absolute joke of a meal. You should not be advertising that you have coeliac options available if your wait staff haven't a clue what it is and you haven't really any main meal / dessert options available. I'm annoyed at myself for not mentioning it and actually paying full price. Defiantly will not return.

Service was one of the worst we had ever experienced. I work in the catering industry and the staff member who served our table would not last a day in our company. We purposely went to Dublin to go to Alfies as we had been there two years ago and it was fantastic. Serious disappointment this time. 1 out of 10 for service
