Steakhouse
Step out of the bustling cobblestone streets of Temple Bar and down the stairs to Tomahawk Steakhouse where beautiful windows allow in light from street level. This is an intimate and unique dining setting – and our steaks are the star of the show.

We have spent months researching where to source the best steaks from around the world and the results of that exploration is there is no better beef than Irish and we are proud to say that we serve only the market-best at Tomahawk.

Tomahawk has 80 delightful seats for you and your party to choose from. We have comfy corners matched with matte timber tables adorned with leather seats, where diners can enjoy their delicious meals under the ambient street lighting that pours in from above. Or you can choose to perch comfortably along the gorgeous timber dining bar set around our open kitchen and watch the theatre of a professional kitchen at work in front of you.

There are very few venues in Dublin able to deliver a top quality experience post Covid but Tomahawk nails it. Thanks to Arvine, Yann and the rest of the team. There are too many details to commend because the whole experience is a cut above the rest. We look forward to returning! Thanks guys!

Great meal, steaks were a little more cooked than requested. Atmosphere quieter then normal due to social distancing, one issue was staff weren’t wearing masks at all in restaurant when serving customers. And we were very close to other tables (1m or less) rigour any dividers.

Our experience at the restaurant was overall positive but there are some points to be highlighted:

The place is well decorated and has more light than you expect.

The cooking staff was very friendly.

Food:

Our starter was very good ! (Croquette)

For the main we took some ratatouille to use it as a side to share between all with the meat and were extremely disappointed : it was only a few slices of some vegetables and they were not fondants at all and for this price I was really expecting ratatouille with great flavours as It is one of my favourite dishes.

Strangely the accompagnements of the ratatouille were incredibly tasty: the cauliflower was full of flavours and the olive tapenade is one of the best I ever had (coming from the south of france it def says a lot ;-) )
The meat was very good : great quality; it was like butter when cutting it !

The desert was good but I’m a huge fan of dulce de leche (travelling very often to Argentina) and I had the impression that it tased more like condensed milk rather than this intense/sweet/soft Caramel flavour that you usually you are looking for in dulce de leche.
