Spicy Chicken Wings in a Basket
Great nice good
It is our favorite restaurant in Dublin, whenever we visit Dublin we eat there at least once 😜
The food was AMAZING
The Staff were friendly, the service quick, and the food and drinks were great. Would certainly recommend it.
Thank you Brian for the 5 star rating and lovely review:) have a great day. David

Thank you for the 5 star rating and great review. Hope to see you soon again:)
Best place to eat in Dublin, even better now that you can reserve a table in advance. Love the wings & fries here. Staff are super friendly & on the ball. Can't wait to go back.
Thank you Sher. and we cant wait to welcome you back:) Have a great day David
Must be trying to get back to normal as food was very basic and I was still hungry after steak dinner, wuth only 5 small "chunky" fries on plate and bit watercress garnish. The steak wasn't seasoned much so lacking flavour. My friend had blue cheese burger but the cheese was cold/ hadn't been cooked at all just a circular slab on top pattie, the burger itself was fried and didn't seem to be chargrilled at all. Staff were very friendly and attentive, shame such easy meun was sub-standard in delivery. I had had a lovely steak about year ago in the Rathmines branch so that's why I had hoped the same would happen in this one. Food seems to be inconsistent as the reason I went to the Rathmines branch for steak was because I'd had a good burger there, but the person I bought got a burger the next time and it wasn't great, cold and possibly fried like the other one I've mentioned.
Hi Sarah. Sorry to hear you had such a disappointing experience. I will be passing your review to our head chef and we will look into it. Thank you for your feedback . kind regards David
This is the original and the best. I was delighted t get back to one of my favourite restaurants. It was worth the COVID lockdown wait and the food was just as good as before. I was delighted to see some "old" and friendly faces again. I have been going to the E&C for over 25 years and it has special memories from birthdays to anniversaries to business meals. The wings and Elephant burger didn't disappoint, nor did the Garden of the Gods! Well done - yet again/ Conor Murray
Thank you Conor for such a lovely review. We are glad to here we are still as good as 25 years ago:) and thank you for your continues business and sharing your happy moments with us:) Kind regards David
The best wings on the planet! Great to get the opportunity to dine in the original E&C Temple Bar again.
It was ok but could get just as good food cheaper elsewhere.
Sorry to hear we did not meet your expectations Joe.
We dined on Saturday night. Restaurant was very busy but they had lots of staff on duty. The wine we ordered was out of stock and instead of offer another they just didn’t bring us and drinks. Five minutes into eating our food I had to chase up the wine and order another one. Wings were just average wings, saying they are the best in Ireland is a bold statement! Omelette was vile, swimming in a pool of butter, I had to send it back as it was like eating a block of butter, tasted of nothing else. Chips were cold. A bit of a shambles really but it was packed so clearly people are lapping it up!
Lovely restaurant and lovely staff highly recommend
Excellent service, excellent food and nice environment
Wings overdone for my taste, sauce still the best though. Small portion of fries for 5€
Really nice environment. We appreciated that the personal was taking into consideration the time of booking, so we did not have to wait at all. They informed about the food, if there is need to wait a little bit more for it. Excelent Rose Wine and Red Beer. I had roasted chicken which was perfectly cooked. I recommend it to anyone who wants to dine outside! 🐙
Thank you for the lovely review. We are vary happy to hear you enjoyed your visit to us and took time to share your experience :) kind regards David
What can I say when it comes to the elephant and castle…..chicken wings and the burgers washed down with a cherry soda
Everyone in Elephant and Castle made my Mams birthday very special. We had gorgeous food and great craic all round.
Food was really good, we recommend the chicken wings but also Eggs Benedict and Pancakes, delicious! Staff is nice also
Very obliging and friendly staff! Great wings!
Thank you for the 5 star and mentioning our amazing staff:) David
These chicken wings are unbelievable. And mixed with the blue sauce wow. My mouths watering already just typing this
Thank you Simon:)
An excellent meal at Elephant and Castle with my husband and two sons, aged 30 and 26. We have been coming here as a family for over twenty years and my son, who now lives in London, reckons a visit home is never complete without a visit to Elephant and Castle for chicken wings and a great burger. The fact they are now taking bookings makes it even better.
Thank you for the lovely review Mary. its great to hear our customers been so loyal ,we must be doing something right:) Have a great day David
Excellent food and service. The wings are incredible as always.
Brought my daughter here for a Birthday lunch and service was very good and wings were amazing and plenty of them, I was stuffed and couldn't finish my portion.
Will definitely call again
Thank you Adrian for the lovely review:)
Best chicken wings you will ever have and the service is amazing
Thank you Katrina:)
Very good food, arrived quickly after ordering. Service was a little slow but the restaurant was busy so this was understandable. Would definitely go again.
Thank you for the great review and thank for been so understanding, hope to see you soon again:) David
Great night out with the family as always staff and the food outstanding
Thanks a million James
Badly attended, always when you go there, they said you must need a booked a table but I could see in the last tried they said me that thy were without a table available for two people but then at the same time another couple came in and they got a table without a booked a table and I saw the website they really had tables available and after this she immediately start set the table. So I really couldn’t understand why they did it. I have to confess that was pretty strange. What is the criteria for you get a table, why they arrange a table for ones and another don’t. Why when you go there without a booked table they said they don’t have any table available but when check the website they have a lot of table available. why they allow for ones and another not.
Hi Erik Always well attended and organised so apologies for your confusion on this occasion. We always have a certain amount of tables available to book online but we don't allow maximum restaurant online booking capacity , as we keep a lot of tables free for our regular walk in trade. We do our best to seat everyone, but we cannot take everyone at the same time. The vast majority of our guests understand and appreciate this . We will always do our best to try and accomodate. Thanks a lot
Best wings but only at this E&C location.
Thank you for the 5 star :)
Fantastic service from start to finish!! My memory of the chicken wings was they were nicer than last nights. Still a pretty good meal, top service and good atmosphere
Nice staff good food short waiting times and prices are good
Thank you so much for the lovely review:)
As always exceptional food and service. We took our 2 week old as is our tradition when we have babies and our 3 year old and we we're seated in a big corner table with plenty of room for everyone. Always relaxed and professional the staff are brilliant. I've been coming here for over 20 years and don't plan on stopping. Wings, elephant and Stilton burger, raspberry sodas and a sundae to share. Delicious. There's nothing like wings and a burger after you have a baby 😉 highly recommend for relaxed dining in a cool environment 😎
What a great way to start Sunday shift, to read great review like this:) thank you so much for keep coming back to us for 20 years and for giving us such a lovely review:) kind regards David
The first choice of restaurant for me and my family every time we are in Dublin. Never disappoints!

bad food , bad service....just disappointing.
Had a lovely dinner there the night of the 31/08. Wings were delicious and burgers and chips were so good. Service was very efficient and lady who served us was so friendly and lovely, didn't get her name but she was so nice. A lovely night and a nice atmosphere around! Felt good to be out again! Thanks.
Thanks a million Roisin
