It shocks me that restaurants in Dublin still don't recognize that good service is 50% of a dinners experience. Darwins is a perfect example of good decor, decent food but no emphasis on service, in fact staff that appeared bored and just didn't care. The meal itself was fine, not the tastiest I've had, the risotto was ok, the lamb... More

Went there as a group of 14 and had a good time. Good choice on both menus - food and wine. We had a little hiccup as two orders got mixed up but staff replaced them with correct dishes relatively quickly so everyone was happy.

We went to Darwins for my husbands 40th birthday so I was looking for something special - and we got it!! The staff were excellent from first arriving to leaving warm and friendly. As for the food it was amazing the highlight was obviously the steaks cooked to perfection and melt in the mouth. We had a nice gap between... More

I ate in Darwins recently and I must say it's the best steak I've had in Dublin. Had a number of sides for the table which were very good. Finished off with some great desserts. Was also great service and I will certainly be returning.

Staff in the restaurant are very friendly and helpful. The food was very tasty all steaks were cooked nicely and desserts were good. Only downside was the chicken main. Looked a littlebare with only a piece of chicken and small bit of mashed potato on the plate. No veg or anything at all with it. Will return for sure

Thank Kevin M
