Good location, neat layout with plenty of nooks & crannies, so fitted the bill perfectly for a few drinks before heading off to a nearby restaurant. However, the waitress who served our group was so bordering on hostile, she could have done with a good lash of the mistletoe. None of us had any idea what was biting her, and... More

We had a couple of drinks here after Christmas shopping. The first thing that hit us when we arrived was the beautiful smell of mulled wine and then we noticed the gorgeous Christmas decorations. We were lucky enough to get a seat in the window and happily spent a few hours people watching and soaking up the festive atmosphere.

If you like cocktails, the Exchequer is for you! I love to stop in for one or two on a night out. The key lime meringue pie cocktail is to die for, a dessert in a glass (super sticky, but worth it!). Love the tiki-rex, very tropical. And the coco cobbler very good too. Infact I'll have to work my... More

At first you think it's only a buzzy little bar but then they have a back space/room for eating. Service was good and they have a full menu. Had the calamari which was a bit rubbery so I would skip it. My main course was braised beef on the bone. OMG this was delicious and can't wait to go back... More

Have been to The Exchequer twice already. From the first visit I can still remember the black pudding and apple puree appetizer - which was one of the best starters I have ever had in a restaurant in Dublin. Tasty and fresh flavours, just bang on! Second time I just popped in for a quick lunch and the bangers and... More

We had a great dinner. The atmosphere is very good. It's a bit more expensive than most of the places.

Ate here with my other half while visiting Dublin for a concert. first impressions were "what the hell have I booked...is this just a bar" however my opinion soon changed. Staff were extremely friendly, and even brought my partner a taster of the local beer. The food was out of this world, we decided to share a dessert, if you... More

Went here on a Saturday for a bite with a couple of friends. Decent menu with quick service and a comfortable fit out. A good place to visit if you are in the city.
