Enjoyed a wonderful romantic evening at Ely. As I've come to expect, Ely is consistent in food quality, service, wine choices and ambience. If I win the lotto I shall hire the entire restaurant for my celebrations and order those beautiful magnums of wine & champagne from the counter top!!!

I am such a fan of this restaurant and visit as regularly as possible, mostly for lunch and occasionally for the excellent value early bird menu. On this occasion I visited with a friend for lunch. The lunch menu is very varied and there are always superb daily specials whether the plat du jour, market fish of the day or the open sandwich of the day. Staff are always very friendly and helpful and the vast amount of choice on the menu means it suits all pockets. I had the plat du jour of veal which was simply divine. I will most definitely be back - I'm now almost part of the furniture such is the frequency of my visits!
My favourite restaurant in Dublin! Excellent food. Excellent ambiance. Excellent service. Probably the most extensive wine list in Dublin.. choices to suit all pallets.. would love someday to manage to have sampled all of them :-)

I really love this restaurant - I have visited for early bird twice and lunch on three occasions over the past couple of months. It's very near my office so I don't know why it took me so long to discover it! Food is excellent in terms of quality, portion size and value for money. Very efficient & friendly staff. Also they have a loyalty card which is a great idea as you can build up loyalty points with each visit.

We had a wonderful early dinner here at Ely Place. I had the steak tartar which was excellently prepared my my wife had the squid, which tasted really fresh. The accompanying wines were of the consistently high standard set by Ely. Service was prompt and very friendly. Very good atmosphere in the bar too.

Dined early on a Friday evening and was suprised that the restaurant was so busy. We both had the crab meat salad with toast and nuts which was delicious as the nuts were a nice extra touch to normal starters. I had the rib-eye and chips for the main and it was really beautifully cooked and seasoned. My gf had the mackrel which she thoroughly enjoyed. We ate from the early bird and found for what we got was terrific value. Could not fault anything on the evening and will definately return.
We visited to celebrate my birthday. The wine was, of course, brilliant but the food was a star in its own right. My main course was vegetarian - and a revelation too. There's plenty for carnivores as well. This was seriously thought-out food, presented brilliantly and with excellent service.

They certainly know their wines, and have a VERY nice selection of them, and how to make a perfect stake. I have had a stake in many places in Dublin, but this is one if the best, every time. We Will be back..
Lovely night out for my friends birthday here- had the selection of breads and dips to start and I had the beef fillet and she had the lamb- also got some sides of mash and roast cauliflower which was exquisite!

Always very well looked after and they cater for gluten free options. Their chips are delicious and the wine recommendations are superb.
