Fun place, good food. A little too loud at times to chat with people at your table and the service was a bit slow but was great fun! Went for a birthday and all the laughs were had when the TGI Fridays crew made her stand on a chair while we sang their happy birthday song.

I love TGI in Temple Bar, the food is always great and really affordable. I've eaten here a couple of times with friends and my boyfriend for a casual start to a night out in town - selected cocktails are only €5! The service in this branch is always brilliant, you're never left waiting long for a seat and your glass never goes empty! The starters are perfect for sharing with friends, platters of chicken/bruschetta are always ordered. The burgers are HUGE, they are a little expensive (roughly €12 each) but considering the size and quality it's fine. The dessert selection is my favourite! Do not leave without trying one (and the Jack Daniels sauce, that's a MUST!)

Miserable. Just miserable. Normally we love TGI Fridays because it is family friendly. This visit was just awful. The music was cranked up so loud the only thing my family could do was either shout or stare at each other in silence. I don't mind if the music is turned up, but blaring and thumping to the point we just want to eat and bolt is not fun at all. The food did not come out at the same time. My plate was piping hot and the food was chilled. This tells me it had been sitting in the window for far far far too long! My husband had finished eating by the time I was served. I really don't see the point of him waiting for my plate to arrive when his is already in front of him. So my family pretty much had to watch me eat as their ear drums were assaulted because they had been served long before me. I did ask the manager and the waitress to turn down the music several times. It would go down for a few minutes, then someone would come along and turn it up again. I don't know anyone that enjoys shouting and eating.

This is a great place for some food if you wanna have a few cheap pints or cocktails afterwards. The atmosphere can change from quiet to crazy in a matter of minutes with all the girls night out ladies these places attract, which can be a little irritating but not too bad.

Staff here are lovely and friendly, great service. My only problem is the actual size of the portions that are served. I ordered a veggie burger which came with a portion of fries. Although the burger was extremely tasty, the portion of fries I received looked like a child sized portion. I left here and I was still hungry. Although the free refills on soft drinks (€2.50) is reasonable, I do think that €16.60 for a veggie burger and fries is a bit excessive.

Visit last Saturday. This is the second time I was in this TGI's. The staff were very helpful with helping me decide what to get from the menu. The portions were very big with a result I struggled to finished it. But I was really impressed with the value for money for the amount of food I got. I would 100% return again. fantastic value for money and food just tastes AMAZING!!

Second time to visit here. I called by for lunch. I was greeted outside the door by a very pleasant girl who showed me to my table. My server was equally as pleasant as was the very friendly manageress I spoke to. There was a good management presence at all times. Foodwise I chose a starter of very tasty chicken strips followed by a very tasty pasta dish. there are good offers available for lunch. you can get a choice of a good few mains for under a tenner or a two course lunch for 14 euro. Free drinks refills were readily provided without even having to ask. There was a very nice atmosphere with music playing at an acceptable volume in the background. The building has great character having been the old Bewleys café where my grandmother worked during WW2. You can enter this restaurant from either Westmoreland Street or Fleet Street. I recommend a visit and it is also a great venue for parties.

ordered the shanghai salad and was bitterly disappointed. Basically I was served a massive place of lettuce with a few orange segments and very little else. The sauce was non-existent and the lettuce was in huge lumps. Friends I was with ordered the burgers and complained they were dry and tasteless. The service was fine and the waitress friendly. I would not go back

Had the regular menu, starter of morezzla sticks which were gorgeous, followed by a main of chargrilled chicken in a creamy pasta sauce (forget the name) but it was amazing. and all for $16 euro ! cant wait to go back.

We had the €16 2 course meal deal where we ordered an appetizer, two mains and a dessert. The Buffalo wings appetizer had a strange tangy sauce over rubbery chicken and the dip was inedible. We had the Bacon Cheeseburger and Chicken fingers as our mains and the burger wasn't too bad but the chicken fingers were stringy and a bit hard. The profiterole cake was okay but small and looked more like a blob of cream than actual cake. The service was horrendous. We had four different waiters who were all inattentive, quick and rude and it wasn't particularly busy at the time. There were people who were waiting at the door to be seated for awhile and some even left for the lack of service. You're better off going to a chipper to save money and possibly get better quality food too. We won't be going back.

Dined here with a friend on a Friday (early evening 4pm) yet there was a great atmosphere already - turned out TGI Temple Bar was celebrating their 1st birthday. Staff were in costume and were very friendly. Food was good value but service could have been better especially as they were not very busy. I had a frozen cocktail for dessert which was delicious. Enjoyable experience. Might not rush back for the food which was just ok but would definitely go back for the cocktails and atmosphere. As we were about to leave, we were given a voucher for a free cocktail to celebrate their birthday which was a lovely touch.
