We really enjoyed our visit to the Chameleon Restaurant. As usual the service was excellent and the food was delicious. The atmosphere was really nice and I can't wait for my next visit to this fabulous restaurant.

This was our first trip to the restaurant and so we all opted for a set menu (vegan / Java). Absolutely everything was just delicious! Would definitely recommend and will go back next time I am in Dublin. Thank you!

We had a delicious dinner here. Mixture of many different dishes. Only thing was we ordered too many dishes. We asked the waitress would it be enough and she said yes. When the food came out it was obvious we had ordered too many. Meaning we had to pay for more food than we could eat. But overall delicious food, great service and lovely atmosphere just to my liking.

The food was fantastic and the wine selection excellent. The waitress could have been more attentive. The tables are very close together so we were very glad the table beside us was unoccupied. I had the GF vegan meal, my daughter had the standard vegan meal. We are both looking forward to going back.

Chameleon is a wonderful restaurant. The Staff and atmosphere are great and the food is fantastic. I recommend that you come as part of a group initially to get a taste of as many dishes as possible, then you can decide your favorite, both the meat and fish set menus are perfect to taste all the dishes. The pork belly and chicken baos are not to be missed and the lamb Kari Java was the best lamb curry I have had. I just wish I lived in Dublin so I could eat here more often!

Fabulous food, really good for both meat and fish lovers. This was my third time in this restaurant and I will keep going! The other three were newbies and were suitably impressed. Dublin’s best kept secret!

This was our second visit to Chameleon, we enjoyed it so much we brought our friends along! We didn’t have dessert this time however as I had a very poor & over-priced brownie on my first visit which put me off the dessert course, which is a shame as I’ve a very sweet tooth & always look forward to a great dessert!

We had a lovely evening. It was a little claustrophobic especially in the bathroom and there wasn't much of seating space. One of the waitresses gave us the impression we were a source of irritation. The tall male waiter was very nice and very helpful. Booking entry for the calendar could not be modified to add additional recipients which is very annoying, it could not be modified in any way so there's a notification could be changed from the default of 10 minutes to for example one hour. Is very important you fix that!

Beautifully decorated little gem upstairs. The traditional seating is perfect for sharing plates within a group. Really fresh flavoursome food.

Delicious and plenty of food chosen the set menus! The staff was super busy they need more support as it took as ages to pay, even to ask for more water for the table! Although the food came super quickly! I have been there several times and I just found it a bit slow this last time!

I had a great evening here with my work colleagues. The food was amazing. Next time I go back i won’t order tapas to start and then set menu as we could not eat all the great food.
