The main course of the meal was not great for 2 of the 3 of us at the meal but we did tell the waitress and the manager came and spoke to us discreetly and listened very well to our complaint. I really appreciated that service and attitude and it would make me go back in the future. The desserts were gorgeous and we had a very comfortable sitting area.

We were a party of 8. Wasn’t happy to find service charge of 15% automatically added to the bill if you were party of 8 or more. We always tip but feel annoyed when an automatic service charge is added rather than at our discretion. To make things worse 2 of our meals were very poor. The Irish stew had awful fatty lamb and another meal was dry salmon and cold potatoes and veg which must have been microwaved. Our other dishes were ok and they did deduct one meal value but wasn’t the best dining experience

Two course dinner was great value! I love the flip over lights to attract attention from the wait staff. Chef could maybe season with a heavier hand, but that's a minor niggle. Had a lovely time and will be back!

We booked a table for mum's 80th birthday. We brought her to Dublin from England as a treat. The food was lovely and the service was spot on. Loved the table lights that alerted the staff if we needed anything ( original).

The food was average, very little if any info on suppliers, provenance, etc. Cheap ingredients was the overall opinion. However we had a very comfortable table, were well looked after by attentive, friendly staff and not rushed out after the last mouthful which is the way in so many Dublin restaurants.

The food was a very mixed bag. The Irish stew was watery and the meat in it was tough. The seafood chowder was decent as were the chicken wings. The mushroom appetizer was very tasty. Prices were too high for the quality of food. Our server was inattentive in more ways than one. After taking our order his job was complete; others brought our food to us, which is fine except that he didn't check back to see if we needed more drinks or anything. I rarely write negative reviews - normally I make good choices regarding restaurants. This time I made a mistake.

A family 3-day break in Dublin. The reviews were quite good so I decided to book a table for the four of us. We were very disappointed by the food. It was tasteless and pricey. If I come back to Dublin, I will chhose another restaurant.

The food was lovely. We had ordered garlic mushrooms for starters which were lovely. Then for main course I ordered steak which was well done and it was cooked to perfection. The other person ordered lasagne and said it was lovely and creamy. Only thing was we found service a bit slow.

Our table was ready on arrival and we didn’t have to wait long for our order to be taken. Our server was a lovely, friendly girl and she couldn’t have made us more welcome.
The food arrived promptly and we all agreed that it was lovely.
Great value for money, will definitely be back.

Staff were so lovely and attentive particularly the guy that brought us the bill. The portion of coleslaw was too large and the chips were over cooked which was a shame but it wouldn’t stop me coming again.

Great food great staff it was our mothers day meal I was having dinner with my 4 aunt's and the staff couldn't have been more friendly. I like how the black haired girl front of house (i think she was a manger) was very down to earth and gave a good bit of banter. Thanks again xx

I have always liked flanagan's pub as a place to go for a quick bite or a quite enjoyable meal. The food is amazing while great for value and the quality is excellent. Staff are very friendly, polite and make your visit more relaxing while checking to see if your enjoying your meal or want anything from refills to water or just to see if everything is OK (how a restaurant should run). Flanagan's is also in the heart of Dublin City surrounded by history and some of the ost famous landmarks in the country. The staff are very polite and professional serving customers with a smile while not rushing you out the door their moto I feel is u come u real u enjoy and u leave when your ready relaxed full and happy. I love flanagan's to say I'd call it one of me local restaurants and recommend it to anyone just lookin for a quite meal wit good food good drink and relax .

First visit to Flanagan’s. Nice atmosphere and staff were very pleasant & efficient. Food was good but portion sizes were very large. The kids pizza was the same size as the adult one! Nearly too much to choose from the menu. Overall it was a good experience at a very busy time of the year & I would go back again with my family.
