Elephant & Castle

This buzzy Temple Bar restaurant was one of the first new-wave places in the area and, although maybe not quite what is was in the early days, its specialities remain the same: big, generous and wholesome salads (their special Caesar salad is renowned), pasta dishes, home-made burgers and great big baskets of chicken wings.


This Dublin restaurants not a place to drop in for a quick bite - waiting staff are usually foreign students and, although willing and friendly, it can take longer than anticipated to finish a meal; however, the lively atmosphere is perhaps the strongest attraction here, so the time passes agreeably.


There's more to the menu than the trademark chicken wings though - a great brunch menu for starters.

2 euro Denotes genuine Irish food culture, ie special Irish food products/companies/producers, and highlights the best places to shop for regional and artisan foods; the selection excludes obvious 'non-Irish' elements regardless of quality, eg ethnic restaurants and specialists in coffee, wine and other drinks, unless relevant to local production or history. Eat & Stay establishments are chosen for their commitment to showcasing local produce and Irish hospitality.

At the base of the Malting House Tower, Pizza e Porchetta is tucked beneath a railway bridge off a cobbled street near Grand Canal Square. Formerly The Bridge Bar & Grill, this atmospheric restaurant is in a historic setting, close to the Grand Canal Theatre ...
