Initially were offered seating downstairs in an area which looked like a corridor and was very noisy. Advised we could be seated upstairs in approx 20 mins and we were given complimentary glass of prosecco. Upstairs lovely bright room. Prawns were extremely difficult to eat and were bad value. Otherwise the food was excellent presented well and was piping hot. Very friendly and pleasant staff.

Food was lovely. Staff attentive. My girlfriend and I started with some olives and croquettes to snack and went for the 2 and 3 course pre theatre menu which we thought was good value.

The €12 supplement for the ribeye steak was a bit much we thought, considering it came with just a small gratin to accompany it. Some veg would have been nice to go with it, so we ordered a side of cabbage which was very tasty and that was an additional €5.

The lamb gnocchi with an nduja sauce was very tasty and the lamb tender. We shared an Eton Mess for dessert which was by far the best dish and a great way to end our meal. It was absolutely delicious. Wine starts at €30 a bottle.

All in all, €150 (including tip) for a dinner for two with a bottle of wine isn't bad. But we have been to nicer restaurants for the same price and cheaper, so we propably won't return.

If someone asked me about it I would say it was nice, and I would not recommend them against it because I can't reeeeally fault it, but I would name a few other places I would go to first.

We had their "july offer" 3 course set meal. The food was delicious, the staff friendly and helpful without being intrusive. The restaurant is comfortable and relaxing without being pretentious (thankfully). Also the deal is terrific value for money (we've eaten from the full menu a couple of times before, but it's been a good while ago so not going to comment on it). Overall would recommend and we will be returning in the future.

Had a fantastic evening at Bang, the service is fantastic, the food is truly wonderful, the Scallop starter and the Duck gnocchi was great but the Fillet Steak....well.... that was out of this world, the taste of the salt and the juiciness was there from the first cut to the last mouthful, I wanted to cut it into thin slices and make it last for hours that’s how beautiful it was. So if your ever in Dublin please make sure you try Bang Restaurant you will not be disappointed

Me and my girlfriend are regulars at Bang, and our experience over Valentine’s weekend was fantastic as always. We had the octopus and scallops for starters, which were amazing, and our Black Forest gateau and cheesecake desserts were delicious. Though the show stopper was hands down our main dish. We had the cote de boeuf to share and it was cooked to perfection! It was tender and bursting with flavour, and the portion was ideal for sharing. Though we each ordered side dishes, they ended up being only half eaten, as our attention was completely focused on the beef.

Adding to our experience was the attentiveness of the staff, who are always warm and welcoming. From when we first stepped into the restaurant and were met by the lady at the front desk to who lead us to our seats and was very friendly, coming to check on us throughout the meal. Alex R. was our server for the night, and he took extra care to make sure we had everything we needed. Alex has been our server before and he is always attentive and helpful. We couldn’t have asked for better service, and we have to say that Alex went above and beyond to make our night special.

As regulars, we can’t recommend Bang enough. If you want a romantic meal with delicious food and wonderful service then Bang is definitely the place to go.

Best restaurant in Dublin! The staff is amazing, kind and full of passion. That you can see on your plate and taste! My reaction to our starter was WOW, no words, just a happy feeling 🤗 and that feeling continued till dessert 🙃
This place is a little next level so the price is a bit more than in the other restaurants but the food and your time there will definitely be worth it.
I would plan a Tripp to Dublin just to eat at BANG Restaurant 😅😋

After declaring a severe seafood allergy a manager brought toasted bread to the table stating "it might be cross contaminated, we use the same grill for prawns, so be careful"... erm??? Maybe not!! A waiter who only worked there for 1 week witnessed this, removed the toast and apologised!
It was rectified but it was also not a very good experience

Hi Clare, We are very disappointed to read your review. We take allergies very seriously here and went to every effort on the night to look after your husband. The waiter who brought the bread with the foie gras mentioned that we do not make it in house, and suggested that your husband eat our own bread instead. There was no mention of cross contamination or prawns, we do not serve prawns in the restaurant. We are sorry for the miunderstanding.

We allowed our selvesabout 90 minutes to get through our meal so next time I think maybe another 45 minutes may be prudent. In conclusion nice restaurant
