We were greeted at our table by Alexandra. She was absolutely fantastic to us. We had a small baby with us and she ensured everything was ok with our table location. Alexandra is brilliant at her job and is a great asset to the restaurant.

Been here a couple of times now during lunch - menu is great good value for money. The only negative would be the noise when large bookings are in. We seem always to be seated at the divider of the main room and it can be hard to hear others at the same table when large bookings are around.

So disappointed service very slow we were on our lunch hour and it took over 40 minutes to get our lunch! Not rushing back. Plus I had to chase to try and get my water refilled so bad

I absolutely loved this restaurant in the hotel, I was drawn by the decor and aesthetics in the lobby and the hotel itself. Overall I rate it a 9/10 just because the noise level was quite high as we were placed in the garden with a bunch of ladies who were celebrating a baby shower.

Restaurant is very nice, but when I booked online I was not given the option to sit outside. When we arrived in time for our booking the staff couldn’t accommodate us outside and we were basically the only table inside! It defiantly put a dampener on our day. The option to sit outside should be clearly given at the time of booking.

Dear MichelleNS, Thank you for taking the time to write a review on your experience at Elle's Bar & Bistro. Due to our terrace being in high demand we can not always ensure our guests a place outside, however, we do endeavour to do so when we can. Should you find yourself at Elle's in the future, please let me know and I will handle your reservation personally. Kind regards, Bronwyn Marketing & Communications Executive customerexperience@igh.ie

I have been twice over past month and the atmosphere is awful

The first day I was in there I seen an incident of the chef and a wait staff member shouting at one another and Friday eve it was a volatile environment and staff making snarky comments about other staff members
Clearly very poorly managed
There was 4 staff members on the floor and I wouldn’t have called it busy but our drinks took 20 mins and when we checked where they were told only one guy does cocktails

Too many Indians not enough chiefs
Nobody seems to know what’s going on
Great to watch the drams unfold if that’s what your after

Atmosphere was dead. Place was half empty but service wasn't tentative/ quick. Food was okay but basic. Glass of wine was overpriced. Background noise from Iveagh gardens wasn't pleasant. Not impressed and wouldn't bother returning.

We had a table booked for 4pm. Lucky we arrived 15 mins early because we were told that the kitchen was closing from 4-5 and we were advised to look at the menu and order quickly.. it was all very rushed, we didn’t get to view the menu for long enough and of course we were left wondering what would have happened if we arrived on time.. burger and fish was ordered in a rush, it arrived too quickly, quality was average.
The hotel is beautiful, cocktails at the bar were a real treat.
It was our 20th anniversary so the rushing was disappointing but a nice experience overall. Thank u.
