    I was so sad to discover on my recent visit to Dublin that the original Exchequer had closed, but I was delighted to discover this off-shoot in Ranelagh. Among the dishes I tried, the pork and the churros were particularly great, and the cocktails were as divine as at the original location. I will be back!

    Service and ambiance were great. Wine was amazing as was the cheese board. Unfortunately the rest of the food lacked seasoning and was bland or it was covered in far too much Aioli.

    The staff went above and beyond to look after us, had plenty to recommend from the tapas and wine list, and even let us be awkward and order our tapas in 2 courses. Black pudding, goats cheese and caramelised onion was delicious - the chefs family recipe, potato croquettes and squid were great too. Then we had the chocolate brownie and lime pie recommended which didn’t fail to impress either. Finished the night off with 2 smoked old fashioned! Will definitely be returning here soon.

    The environment is too loud and no music in the background… the waitress she was very nice… nothing too complain about the service, the waitress and the manager were really nice to us, however, the food was the worst experience we have had, no combination, no flavor, the artichoke was dry, the meatballs tasted low quality, our prawns had no flavor… we left very unsatisfied, we are a food lovers people… and we do appreciate good food!

    The Exchequer Wine Bar - RanelaghResponded on 2 March 2022Hi there, We do appreciate your feedback and we want to apologise for your experience with us.We do feel that this review is a bit harsh, due to the fact that you guys almost finished all the food despite described as tasteless,low quality,no flavor and the waitress checked on you during your meal and everything seemed fine at that point but,we do take full responsibility and if you decide to try us again in the future we will make sure that you guys will have a better experience with us.
