Elephant & Castle, named after the London hub, opened in New York City in 1973. It was soon a favourite among New Yorkers and visitors alike, with a menu whose dishes soon appeared throughout lower Manhattan restaurants – imitation is the best form of flattery after all! It led us to adopt a motto at the time of “Copied by many, excelled by none”.
Elephant & Castle, as an Irish brand, has been a foodie monument in Temple Bar for the past 30 years, with most recent additions to the Elephant and Castle family in Rathmines and Monkstown in 2018.
Our aim is, and always has been, to produce consistently delicious food, in a buzzy familiar atmosphere that our loyal customers know and love.
