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.

Enjoyed the whole evening. Just felt we were waiting a long time between starter and main. We ordered the tomahawk. Felt it would be a while to cook. But we could see it sitting under the heat. We were waiting I'd say close to 45 minutes or more between courses. But otherwise absolutely no issues. Would recommend to anyone if they love steak.

Had the pleasure of eating here with my husband & daughter for a special birthday dinner and I really couldn’t say enough about the place! The ambience, the decor, the friendly vibrant staff all set the scene for what was the nicest steak/meal I have EVER eaten!! It certainly won’t be that cheapest place you’ll ever eat but worth every penny for a special occasion! I’ll be going back!

We were recommended this place by a friend from Dublin, and it certainly didn’t disappoint. Best steak I’ve had in years. Friendly, helpful service and fantastic food in great location. Well worth a visit for anyone visiting Dublin.

Great place. Great service. Great food. Alot of people giving out in their reviews of the steak being tasteless, try it with chips or their amazing bacon & onion mash. Quality food and would highly recommend.

Great food but pepper sauce was watery and tasteless.
2 scallops for starter not acceptable needs to be at least 3.
Apart from that loved it

Although the service was very good and the interior of the restaurant very nice, the prices were a bit more than we expected. We probably could have found an equally good steak at a better price.

The best steak we have eaten - and we've travelled and eaten plenty! Loved the fact they brought over the raw cuts and talked them through so we would know what we would like to order. Classy cocktails too.

lovely space, with a good atmosphere and ideally located in Temple Bar. We had the Del Monico steaks and they weren't great, given the price you can get better food for the same price elsewhere (though perhaps not around the Temple Bar area).

It was great. We had enjoyed Irish food all week, but saw the dry aged beef in the window and made this our last dinner in Ireland. And we were not disappointed. The bone in rib eye for two was superb...

Located in the temple palace area, it's in the basement with only a small sign on the street. Very discrete, if you didn't know... you wouldn't find it...

My wife and I came here based on the recommendation of a local bartender. It was a Saturday night so we figured we would check the online booking system and managed to swing a last minute reservation. Great!

We arrived to a completely packed venue and again managed to get the best seat in the house. Corner booth, backs to the wall, view of the entire establishment. Just keeps getting better.

Our server's name was David (even though he looked like a Patrick). He was excellent. Quick, on the ball, couldn't ask for more.

My wife and I both ordered the center cut fillets. What is that? Beautifully tender, grass fed (11 months of the year) Irish beef. My wife got hers medium... I ordered mine rare... so tender it cut with a butter knife... Amazing!

Steaks done and only one decision is left... to order or not to order the creme brulee... perfection! except for one thing...

@tomahawk management, you need to get smaller desert spoons! My face was swallowed by my spoon as I ate my desert...

So with the exception of our wildly over sized desert spoons (@ tomahawk management), our experience at the Tomahawk steakhouse was absolutely excellent and I would definitely recommend to others...

Great atmosphere right in the middle of Temple Bar. We shared the Tomahawk steak which was fantastic. It came with thin onion rings, which I wouldn't have picked, but were tasty with a nice small bite to them. We expected the night out to be pricey, but felt that the prices were reasonable for a good steakhouse, especially given that we also purchased a bottle of wine and multiple sides.
