Second visit to Flanagans I like it very much on both occasions. Had the pre movie offer. My husband had the steak w d rated it highly. I had salmon was very nicely done. Their baked Brie was a lovely starter too. Service is friendly and efficient and wait time not too long. I’m sure we will return again when in Dublin.

It's a cosy place in the city that does more "traditional" meals. They do rare right.
Verging on nostalgia the restaurant itself is a reminder of youth to many.
The staff are lovely. I hope they're paid well.

Overpriced and food average More like pub grub. Little black flies everywhere (from potted plants). Could do with a makeover.

The food was kind of basic. Nothing special. The steak was way overcooked. The mixed grill of meats apparently my friend who ordered it said the chicken liver was horrible; worst he's ever had. Nothing special for all the raves it was getting online and all the advertising pieces we saw.

Very poor quality food and service. No ice with cold drinks, no tartare sauce with scamp. Served very poor presentation. Special did not have all ingredients listed on menu. We were very disappointed charging bistro prices for cafe service and quality.

Always one of my favorite treats when we go to Dublin, I wouldn’t look anywhere else, food, service, setting and atmosphere is perfect, also it’s spotlessly clean for such a busy restaurant.

I thought this was a lovely restaurant. However the plaice was more batter than fish. However, the service was excellent especially in relation to gluten free options. Although it wasn't on the menu when my sister said she was looking for a chicken dinner they managed to make her one without the sauce. Although gluten bread was just undern£4 for one slice.

The food was not outstanding but average.
It was very crowded en there were people waiting for a place to be seated. This is where the manager did not know how to guide his personell. None if the waiters knew exactly what their job was....pitty

Ordered the pesto chicken pasta which was bland and tasteless and chicken was dry. Very disappointing.
Partner had goats cheese burger and chips which he was not impressed with.
We visited on new years eve which was very busy you could see the restaurant had took too many bookings and staff weren't organised for it at all. Partners food order was taken incorrectly. Poor service and rushed. Would not recommend or be visiting again. Waste of money. Would prefer going to McDonald's than going here.

Waitresses try their best, they are attentive and smiley, unfortunately food disappointed us very much.
I really expect to have Irish stew in Irish restaurant look and taste like a stew and not like a watery broth with carrots :-/

The main course of the meal was not great for 2 of the 3 of us at the meal but we did tell the waitress and the manager came and spoke to us discreetly and listened very well to our complaint. I really appreciated that service and attitude and it would make me go back in the future. The desserts were gorgeous and we had a very comfortable sitting area.

We were a party of 8. Wasn’t happy to find service charge of 15% automatically added to the bill if you were party of 8 or more. We always tip but feel annoyed when an automatic service charge is added rather than at our discretion. To make things worse 2 of our meals were very poor. The Irish stew had awful fatty lamb and another meal was dry salmon and cold potatoes and veg which must have been microwaved. Our other dishes were ok and they did deduct one meal value but wasn’t the best dining experience

Two course dinner was great value! I love the flip over lights to attract attention from the wait staff. Chef could maybe season with a heavier hand, but that's a minor niggle. Had a lovely time and will be back!

We booked a table for mum's 80th birthday. We brought her to Dublin from England as a treat. The food was lovely and the service was spot on. Loved the table lights that alerted the staff if we needed anything ( original).

The food was average, very little if any info on suppliers, provenance, etc. Cheap ingredients was the overall opinion. However we had a very comfortable table, were well looked after by attentive, friendly staff and not rushed out after the last mouthful which is the way in so many Dublin restaurants.
