Many restaurants attempt to combine perfect ambiance with great food, service, and overall experience and few are successful in this endeavor. However, the Elephant and Castle Pub and Restaurant located in Boston exceeds most expectations and delivers in its fine ser vice and food. This restaurant serves its customers what they want and never fails to be a fun and enjoyable place to get a bite to eat and relax.
The Elephant and Castle is located at 161 Devonshire Street, which is a short walk away from the Government Center T stop. Being close to the shops and attractions at Faneuil Hall makes this restaurant and pub ideal for those who have been shopping or spending time with others and wish to get a delicious bite to eat.
The interior of the restaurant is decorated in typical pub décor, but is done so in a tasteful manner. The atmosphere is fun, enjoyable, and very inviting. Everything is clean; the wait staff is attentive and quick to service the costumers. Within 10 to 15 minutes of ordering, my food was delivered by a pleasant waitress.
The menu at the Elephant and Castle is simple, tasty, and affordable. There are weekly dinner specials which run from $12 to $14.50 and feature signature items such as the broiled steak tips and Guinness stew.
The menu features many other options that are not only prepared wonderfully, but are accommodating for many different tastes. These include seafood selections, a variety of classic dishes, sandwiches, salads, steak, burgers, and many delicious appetizers and plates.
The Blue Cheese and Bacon Burger was absolutely delicious and cost only $11.50. The burger was cooked perfectly and was fresh and tasty. It was topped with lettuce, tomato, onions, a pickle, melted blue cheese, and crisp, perfectly prepared bacon. The melted blue cheese gave the dish an enjoyable, distinctive taste.
The Blue Cheese and Bacon Burger was filling and served with the costumer’s choice of English chips (French fries), balsamic-tossed greens, and the soup of the day. The English chips were perfectly cooked, soft on the inside and crispy on the outside.
The Elephant and Castle Restaurant and Pub is the perfect place to take friends, family, or a date for an appetizing meal in a fun atmosphere. The plates are affordable, tasty, and served in a welcoming and kind manner, leaving customers excited to tell others about their experience and eager to make a return to this fine establishment.
