Visited here with a group of colleagues based on reviews from Trip Advisor, I had high expectations, which were not met. The restaurant was reasonably busy, for a mid week meal. Turning to the food, great sides which were let down by the main event - the steaks. Presented well but did not deliver on flavour. Similar to another reviewer... More

Went out with a group of 9 for dinner there and was extremely happy with the experience. The staff were very friendly and helpful and despite the size of our group food was served promptly. there wasn't a person at the table that didn't enjoy their meal and i would recommend it for a social gathering. Be aware it is... More

Best fillet steak I had in Dublin or for that matter anywhere. Their beuf bourginion was superb too. Same applies to their Pavlova. We also had an excellent St Emilion. Overall, really worth visiting when in Dublin.

I had the rib eye on the bone and partner had the fillet, both were superb, I haven't had a better steak anywhere I've eaten before.

We have had several visits to Darwins over a long period of time & always find the food & service very good. On our most recent visit there were 8 in our party & we arrived early at the weekend for the Pre Theatre menu. As the restaurant opens at 5pm & it was not particularly busy, we were more... More

Delores and her team go above and beyond to try and make your visit extra special. They are always so warm and welcoming from the moment you phone to book! Super accommodating and lovely! And the food is the last word! Any time I've been, I go for the fillet steak and it's melt in your mouth, I've never had... More

Had an enjoyable meal here pre Christmas with a group of 6 friends. The atmosphere is good and staff attentive. All starters were excellent. However, the steaks, although good, didn't quite live up to expectations.

We had calamari and mushroom risotto for starters. Calamari wasn't great. Risotto was very tasty. Corn fed chicken was delicious, so tasty and juicy. Mash and veg were perfect too. Striploin steak was good. Overall, good value early-bird menu. We were disappointed with our waiter as he wasn't overly keen/helpful on answering our questions about the menu.

We found this place kind of by accident but are very very glad we did!!! The "Hostess" was very welcoming even though it was New Year's Eve and we did not have a reservation. The atmosphere was sophisticated but relaxing. Everything on the menu sounded wonderful and we enjoyed our food immensely. The wait staff was friendly and attentive without... More
