A group of us went there for dinner on a Wednesday evening and we had a wonderful meal. On entering the restaurant we were warmly greeted by the staff and shown to our table where we started off the soiree with a lovely bottle of Californian chardonnay called "Menage a Tois"; this came highly recommended by the sommelier and it really was an excellent apéritif. The décor is very striking and Darwin's "Origin of the species" is depicted on the walls, so you may look at your predecessors while enjoying your dinner. The whole idea of the place is that the meats are fully traceable and are personally selected from the in house butcher's at the rear of the restaurant; the origin of the species can be traced! We decided to choose from the A La Carte menu and for starters we ordered a mix of the pan-fried tiger prawns and the buffalo mozzarella; both were beautifully presented and mouth-wateringly tasty. As we were there for the steaks we ordered a combination of different cuts; the New York Strip loin, the T-bone and I had the fillet steak with béarnaise sauce which was perfectly cooked (medium), it was juicy and delicious. My friends also praised their steaks remarking how they were cooked exactly as desired which doesn't always happen. We had a very agreeable red to accompany our mains called "Le Tire Bouchon Rouge", a French Merlot which complemented the steaks very nicely. I should add that there are seafood and vegetarian options available also. For dessert, which was divine, we shared a Darwin's dessert plate for two and an Eton mess. The selection of desserts we sampled were simply fabulous; if you're a chocolate lover like myself you will relish the chocolate brownie with vanilla ice-cream. The Eton mess with winter berries, ice-cream, meringue and raspberry sorbet was as good as it reads; just gorgeous. To finish up the evening we were given shots of sambuca on the house; much appreciated. Overall it was a very enjoyable experience; I highly recommend it!

Staff were brilliant. Food was lovely, fillet steak was lovely but got a few chewy bits which was unfortunate. Lovely overall, would def return.

I Love this restaurant one of my favourites, not sure what went wrong tonight the service was not up to its usual high standard. Our main course was a 20 min wait between starters, when we got out main course I was nearly finished by steak by the time my side of veg came out. Usually the service is top class in this restaurant. Putting it down to a once off as the food was its usual high standard.

Wow. What a perfect evening it was. From the warm greeting from one of the owners to the professional yet very friendly waiting staffs, and to the very good quality food, the evening was faultless. It used to be a antique shop the owner said, the atmosphere is great. Had duck rillette and wild mushroom risotto for starters, rib eye and fish stew for mains and shared de-constructed cheesecake. All were very well presented and tasted great. With a 45 euro bottle of red the bill came at 96 euro. Me and my friend were saying why didn't we come to this place before. Will be back soon and definitely recommend to anyone who likes fine food.

Excellent food every time we visit. The manager/ head waitress in particular is extremely attentive to every customer. Darwins always has a very welcoming and warm atmosphere. The early bird is very good value at 20-25 euro for three courses. The steaks in particular are top notch.

My friend and I dined here early Saturday. Despite the restaurant being busy, the service, as always, was excellent We were quite surprised to find the pre-theatre menu available in December, which at €29.99 is good value, considering the quality of the food. The fish of the day, plaice, was beautiful and the Brussels sprouts even tasted good! The Christmas pudding was delicious, light and served with some yummy ice cream.

Came here with a friends last night. Food was lovely couldn't fault it. Atmosphere was good, the restaurant was full and there seemed to be a few Christmas parties in. Service could be improved, they do not leave water on the table with you but aren't the quickest to top it up and also our bread and side plates weren't cleared away before our mains arrived. It is not a cheap restaurant but is reasonable enough. However for what we paid (€100 for 2) we were disappointed not to receive any kind of chocolate with our tea or mints with the bill.
