I had dinner here last night with some friends and I have to say I was really disappointed. I've been to the new place a few times and I always hope that the next time I go there it will be nicer but it just wasn't, I ate in the original Anvil around the corner plenty of times and the food was amazing and a great cosy atmosphere but it seems to have lost that and the food well was just bland and boring. The menu is very limited and they don't seem to change it up at all, I am on a strict calorie diet and would have loved a low cal curry or a stir fry but on the high protein menu there was a salad, fish, steak or chicken all very basic in the end I had pasta and it was well bland and really tasteless. Service was really good we had a very pleasant waiter serving us one other waiter was not so pleasant but you can win them all. I really wish they would revise their menu and possibly add some dishes with flavour that would make people say wow that place is amazing. Will I be going back again anytime soon the answer is no.

We went for a family birthday for a special birthday. Food in the Anvil is always good. The tempura prawns to start were amazing and the curry was spicy but is always great at the Anvil! Even though I love the Anvil I still do find it slightly over priced.

Staff were very unhelpful. We arrived at 11.30 for breakfast and were shown to a booth. It had a dirty fork and knife that the waitress ignored. She gave us menus without saying a word and then walked off. She came back a few minutes later and took our order. She was incredibly unfriendly at all times. She brought us our coffees and juice and just placed them in front of us and walked off. The milk jug had a small bit of milk, we just needed to call her over to bring us a fresh jug. This seemed to irritate her. We received our food off her with a horrible atmosphere, She was in no way friendly or welcoming and even though your food was very tasty we won't ever be visiting the anvil again.

I had not visited in about 6 months but was delighted my trip. Friendly welcome, lovely atmosphere and delicious food. The addition of the High Protein menu is super! Tuna steak was amazing, Hoisin duck very tasty without being too fatty and the sneaky slice of After Eight cheesecake was incredible! Will be back a lot sooner this time!

I brought a friend here for lunch. She had not been to The Anvil before, was very impressed and intends visiting it again soon. Food and service were excellent as usual.

This is one of my favourite restaurants and my visit today did not disappoint. The food and service were excellent as usual. It is a pity they do not do a set lunch menu. I feel the Early Bird and set Dinner Menu are great value but the lunch can work out quite expensive in comparison.

My daughter and I could not wait to try the tapas here, and I have to say we were not disappointed. We had spicy wings, blue cheese dip, crab cakes, bread and dips, pilpil prawns, tempura prawns, wedges aioli, lemon sole and for dessert apple crumble and baked alaska. We washed this all down with the lovely Santa Digna Rose. We both thoroughly enjoyed the tapas, service was excellent and we would definitely return to try some others which are on the menu.

Beautiful food and presented really well but is a little bit pricey compared to other places of the same quality and service! I would still eat here again but on payday or a special occasion!

Myself and my wife went to The Anvil Bistro to celebrate our wedding anniversary and were very impressed. For starters my wife had lemon sole tempura and I had the terrine of Clonakilty black and white pudding both of which were delicious. We both had 28 day aged striploin steak for mains and again we were delighted. It was served on a substantial bed of champ and came with peppercorn sauce and beautiful mushrooms. My one small gripe is that my steak was not quite as rare as a rare steak should be, but this appears to be the norm in Irish restaurants. For dessert I had banoffee pie and my wife had apple pie which were very nice. The set dinner menu costs €29.95 for three courses which is good value for the quality of food on offer especially with no supplement for steak. The staff were very friendly and efficient and seemed to genuinely want you to enjoy your time in the restaurant. All in all a very pleasant experience and we will definitely be returning.
