We had a great evening at the Bull and Castle. It was a business evening, entertaining foreign colleges in Ireland for the first time. They really enjoyed the evening and the atmosphere. Staff offered them samples of the different craft beers, explained the different cuts to us and there was no pressure or hurry to move off our table. We'd be happy to entertain here again.

I was disappointed in the service, we were not well attended to, our server rarely checked on us and had to ask others for even water refresh. Bottle wine, we poured ourself. Food was good, only my steak was overcooked, they took it off the bill, not an offer to replace, just removed it, walked away. I heard great things about this and the others in my party had good food and happy, what counted. For me, wish it would have been better - even a sorry from the manager would have been nice.

Service was slow this time round which is unusual as we have been here 8 or 9 times. It took 20 mins to get someone’s attention to order. We where at the window so maybe a bit hidden away ??But other than that food is excellent and staff are great

Food was fabulous only down fall was the 40 minute wait time between finishing starter and getting the main course . Even tho the restaurant did not seem that busy to justify the wait time

We reserved the last table online so I presumed it would be very busy. I tried to get reservations all week for this place as I heard it was the best around. We arrived just 10 minutes late and the person who greeted us said they were just about to cancel our table but we arrived just in time. Yet once we sat down there was nobody else at all in the restaurant. the food was good, not amazing. The steak was cooked perfectly in the middle but it was too charred on the outside, making it taste too burnt. The chips were cold and you did not get enough sauce.

One of the best meals I've had in Dublin. Everything i tried was excellent. Cant wait to try some of the other restaurants. Staff very attentive. Not much atmosphere but that could be that it was a Wednesday night. And a bit pricey but you pay for what you get. Well Done

We ate with four people at a table for for, two had just a regular dish, the other two ate a shared plate. Even with this, what I think, very normal scenario, the table was crazy overloaded, making it too narrow to eat freely. Everything else: Perfect, I used to live nearby a couple of years ago and never ate at yours, I wish I had discovered before moving back to Germany

The meat was of excellent quality and taste. I had a fillet steak, my husband had a rumpsteak. However, both were cooked a bit too much for what we had ordered. It was my husband's birthday which I mentioned when placing the reservation. So at the end of the meal he was surprised by a (free of charge) desert with a little candle and two staff member singing happy birthday - we appreciated this very much.
