Restaurant Reviews from Feeney
Captain America's Cookhouse And Bar restaurant
44 Grafton Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin, Area Code: Dublin 2
Reviewed 28th April 2015 ( visited 25th April 2015 )I don't understand the negative reviews for Captain America's. Tracey our waitress has been serving us for 20 years, she is excellent at her job and really friendly. Portion sizes are massive! I don't think you need a starter as the mains are huge! Love this place and I will be back for more :)
Beaumont House restaurant
1 Shantalla Road Beaumont, Beaumont, Dublin, Area Code: Dublin 9
Reviewed 08th July 2015 ( visited 07th July 2015 )Very disappointed to see that the Beaumont House has raised its prices, obviously the customer has to pay for the newly printed menus. The food is lovely however they have removed the complimentary fries from most of their mains and replaced with salad! €12.95 for lasagne without fries is a rip off. €3.50 for a 99 ice cream cone is a crazy. This place has forgotten it is a local pub and not one which is not on the French Riveria. BOOM PRICES FOR ORDINARY FOOD AND LOCATION.
The Old Boro Public House & Restaurant
Main Street, Swords, Dublin
Dreadful....avoid at all cost....you have to order your food at the bar... when the food arrived starters and mains arrived together....Food was cold and even colder were the staff...no wonder you have to pay for your food before you are served it as you would not pay for the muck you are served....will not be back
The Waterside Inn
Opposite Howth Yacht Club, Harbour Road, North Co. Dublin, Howth, Dublin
Dreadful...we should have known not to go into this place when the place was empty on a Thursday evening....the food was like rubber and cold....there were a few old lads sipping pints at the bar....this place could be a little gold mine if they cleaned it
7 Ballsbridge Terrace, Dublin, Ballsbridge, Dublin
Roly's is well over rated .....it was a nightmare to find anything nice to eat for a vegetarian on their menu...the menu is pretentious and not appealing ....myself and the other half left very disappointed with our visit
The Snail Box
Kilmoon, Ashbourne, Meath
Lovely place...food order was taken efficiently however the server lacked in warmth however this could be due to the language barrier....the food was lovely...however I was not happy with the chips being served in one bowl for two people....I prefer to have my own bowl and not having to divide out the chips....otherwise delicious food and a nice place to have dinner
Scotch Bonnet Urban Cafe
4 Church Road, South Co. Dublin, Malahide, Dublin
We have eaten here a few times at different times of the week and it never fails for us. Stephanie and Kevin are so welcoming and could not have been more customer focused. Food is delicious I love the burger and the cookies & ice cream is delicious whilst the other half loves the chicken wing....
Langton House Hotel Kilkenny
69 John Street, Kilkenny City, Kilkenny City, Kilkenny
We ate in Bar 67 food was pretentious and over priced. I had the burger which was horrible served with cold fries at €16. My friends who were vegetarian had only one dish to pick as the menu did not cater for them. Very restricted menu and way over priced. Staff had no personalities and my friends did not like the place. No warm welcome or friendly banter.

4 St Aidans Park Road, Marino, Dublin
Brams has been redecorated since my last visit. I ate here all the time when I worked close by. I love the home cooked food and the prices are excellent value for money. I even get my leftovers wrapped for later. Jimmy the owner has lots of time for people and Ling the waitress runs this place with military precision. I LOVE THIS PLACE
Hogs and Heifers
South Quarter Airside, Swords , Swords, Dublin
Nice concept however slow service and burnt food lets this place down. Our waiter was lovely however he was the only one on at lunch time as a result he undercharged our bill which we only noticed later when we had left. Lunch service needs to be fast as you only get an hour for the lunch time trade so slow service would put me off....Get more staff at lunch time and speed things up.
Captain America's Cookhouse And Bar

I don't understand the negative reviews for Captain America's. Tracey our waitress has been serving us for 20 years, she is excellent at her job and really friendly. Portion sizes are massive! I don't think you need a starter as the mains are huge! Love this place and I will be back for more :)
Frango's World Cuisine
Level 3, Dundrum Town Centre, Sandyford Road, South Dublin, Dundrum, Dublin
Dreadful place!!!....This is the first and last time I will visit this place. I am shocked that Dundrum Town Centre allow such a sub standard outlet to operate. The food is cold however the staff are even colder!!!!! Myself and my partner got breakfast which was cold. When I complained the food server took our plates and put the food in the microwave.
West Restaurant @ The Twelve Hotel
The Twelve, Bearna Village, Galway City, Galway
This place is so over rated I was not impressed. The vegetarian menu is so limited. I asked if I could have something else off the menu and was told no. The woman who served us then talked about her commute with the couple opposite us and was so rude and unpleasant to us. You should try to accomodate the customers palate instead of saying no. This place is pretentious and I dont know why. Sadly disappointed
The Martello (Bray)
Strand Road, Bray, Wicklow
This place is very busy. The staff were efficient in serving the food. The soup was lovely however the lasagne was welded to the dish. It was burnt to a crisp after being reheated and the steak sandwich was a terrible cheap piece of rubber I would not give to my dog. Shame that the food let this place down.
Main Street, Castleknock Village, Dublin 15, Castleknock, Dublin
I have to say I do not understand the negative comments for this place. I have been eating here for years and I have to say the food is lovely and the staff are very friendly and helpful. I love the fact that you can 'kid size' your meal so you have the option to opt for a smaller portion. I wish other places would let you 'kid size' your meal....10/10 for innovation and thank you to the lovely staff who served myself and my sister today!
The Port House Ibericos
5/6 Pembroke Cottage, Pembroke District, Dundrum Town Centre, Dublin 14, Dundrum, Dublin
I visited here with a friend of mine who lived in Cadiz as a child and we both found the food to be average. The potatoes bravas was not up to scratch and the creme brulee was burnt beyond recognition.....nice building and staff were not too obtrusive
Pembroke District, Dundrum Shopping Centre, Dublin 14 , Dundrum, Dublin
I have to say I really enjoyed my visit....Staff were friendly and could not have served us better.....I ate with my sister and my friend and all three of us loved our food....There is a good mix of long tables for groups or booths which I love or small tables for two....I love that I can see the chefs cooking our food.....A helpful suggestion would be to watch your toilets....I had to tell staff that there was no toilet paper in two cubicles...luckily I always check first ;) Lovely food ....will be back for more :)
Silks Chinese Restaurant
5 The Mall , Co. Dublin, Malahide, Dublin
I had seen all the bad reviews about Silks and I have to say I was really surprised with the quality of the meal I had last Saturday. The food was lovely and the service was very good.....My boyfriend brought me so I do not know the price but I have to say I would recommend the fillet beef curry it was lovely....Will definitely be back for more :)
Il Sorriso Restaurant
New Street, North Co. Dublin, Malahide, Dublin
This is a lovely place ....food was excellent and very generous portion size....will definitely be back for more.....Best Italian I have had in ages!
Meeting House Square, Dublin 2 , City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin
Good Italian in the centre of Temple Bar....house wine is lovely and fairly priced...the fish is excellent....a real Italian restaurant....just a note that the mains come without poatoes or vegtables so you have to pay for sides....does not serve chips which I don't mind...deserts could do with some work ...overall not bad at all hoever a little pricey
Pizzas n Cream
Albert Walk, Bray, Wicklow
Very disappointed to see this place fall into such disrepair and neglect! The food here is lovely...especially the pizza and home made ice cream....avoid the pasta dishes as all you get is pasta the meat is no where to be seen! The toilets and the outside court yard are filthy....there are cigarette buts in the courtyard and the yard seem to be a dumping ground for the mop bucket, old tables etc.....this place would benefit from a complete renovation....
193 Clontarf Road, North Dublin, Clontarf, Dublin
Excellent food, good portion sizes, they will box off any left overs and allow you to bring home the food you don't manage to finish. Warm friendly staff and well priced dishes.....I love this place whether its just for pizza with a friend or a romantic dinner with the boyfriend....The northside could do with more places like this little gem....5 stars :)
The Yacht (Clontarf)
73 Clontarf Road, Clontarf, Dublin
The food is good value for money however the service could be better, saying that it is not surprising that the waitresses look miserable as the manager is not very professional and could do with a course in customer service.....Our order was not given to the kitchen and after 30 minutes of waiting we asked another waitress who brought over her manager who is rude and unable to deal with a complaint professionally.
F.X. BUCKLEY Steakhouse Pembroke Street
1A Lower Pembroke Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
Excellent Food & Excellent Service - what more can you ask for? Will be back again and again for more. Only thing they could improve on is the choice of deserts - this is not a criticism but a mere suggestion. Plate licking good food and waiters with a sense of humour :)
23 Watermill road, North Dublin, Dublin 5, Raheny, Dublin
Nice food and atmosphere - however service can be hit and miss if they are really busy, however the staff are friendly. The deserts are over priced and you have to pay for chips which your steak which is dear enough.
The Prince Bar @ The Prince of Wales Hotel
Church Street, Athlone, Westmeath
Very nice food, portion sizes were very good and excellent value for money. The atmosphere was nice and lively. Staff are very friendly and service was excellent. Will come back again.
Il Corvo Restaurant
98-100 Upper Drumcondra Road, Dublin 9 , Drumcondra, Dublin
This restaurant could do a hell of a lot better! The location is perfect - however the decor and food are in need of a make over. The food is average nothing special. The food is over priced for what you get. I had the over priced lasagne which was burnt and stuck to the bottom of the dish. The staff lack the personal touch, a warm welcome goes a long way. This could be a lovely place if they just updated the decor and served simple tasty Italian food.
McHugh’s Wine & Dine Restaurant
59 St. Assam's Park, Dublin 5, Raheny, Dublin
Very friendly local staff and nice relaxing decor. If you want local and a walk down the sea front later then this is the place! The menu could be extended by two or three dishes. You are limited however what is served is very good. The food was lovely and hot and the portion sizes were fine. Good value for money. Had a bit of banter with the waiting staff which was refreshing!. Will be back for more, however I could not come back too often as I would not have much to chose from the menu. I could do with two or three more choices which are not fish to chose from and the vegetarian side could do with some imagination from the chef.
13 Dame Court, Dublin, City Centre South, Dublin
Very disappointed with this place - ate here twice and both times it has not been great. We were left standing upstairs without being acknowledged by the staff. No one greeted us on entry which was a bad start. Our food order was mixed up and three of us were served our mains when everyone else had finished. This place is over rated and not worth a visit in my opinion
Carnegie Court Hotel, North Street, Swords, Swords, Dublin
This place can be hit or miss with the service. Been here a few times and every time you have different levels of service. Food is nice however the desserts could do better I would give them a miss.
Casa Pasta (Clontarf)
55 Clontarf Road, Dublin 3, Clontarf, Dublin
Nice place for a quick meal but not somewhere you would linger for long. The tables are a little to close to one another for comfort. Service was good and staff are very friendly. Food is grand would stay and drink lots of wine if the place was not so cramped
89 Upper Rathmines Road, Dublin 6, Rathmines, Dublin
A gem of a restaurant! The decor and relaxed atmosphere is very inviting. Food is very nice and reasonably priced. Service was excellent. This place is nice for a romantic meal or a meal out with friends. A lovely friendly place will definitely be back again and again.
1 Crow Street, Temple Bar, Temple Bar, Dublin
Best service in town for a long time - our waiter was so efficent we did not notice him at work. I am not a mad fan of Creole so my rating my be a little on the mean side. The desserts could be better and are well over priced. Excellent location for a nice romantic meal
66/67 Great South Georges Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin
We arrived however our table was not ready - this was not bad as we sat at the bar and had a drink. Staff were very friendly and extremely efficient. I asked for the vegetarian menu which was a little over priced for the portion size given. Food was nice however my friends side of chips was a bit on the burnt side but mine were perfect ;) Would go back again
Dundrum Town Centre Dundrum, Dundrum, Dublin
Good American style diner. I have eaten here a few times and I find the service good and the food fine for a diner. The starters are large and can be shared. The manager I find is very pleasant, she allowed me to have the nachos to share as a starter at half price as no one at our table wanted to order them with me. Nice for lunch or before the cinema, but hardly a place you would dine at for a special occasion.
26-28 Clarendon Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
Staff were pleasant and the atmosphere was good. Food was fine however portion size a little on the small side. Nice if you like Thai food, not a mad fan of it hence the rating may be a little harsh.
La Caverna Restaurant & Wine Bar
12 Fownes Street, Dublin 2, City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin
A Gem of a restaurant! The food was delicious and the service was top notch! The staff are so friendly and very professional in serving you. By far one of the best places to eat in Dublin and very reasonably priced. This is a lovely place and is situated right in the heart of Temple Bar if you want to finish the night off with a few drinks! Would highly recommend a visit to La Caverna!
The Steps Of Rome
1 Bird avenue, Clonskeagh, Clonskeagh, Dublin
The food is okay nothing special in my opinion. This place is over rated, the tables are cramped and the staff are not very friendly. This place is average.
La Banca Ristorante
Main Street, Lucan Village, Lucan, Dublin
Myself and my friend ate here the other day - it was a week day so we were not expecting the place to be buzzing. There were a few office workers in having dinner, apart from that no locals at all which should have said it all!!!. The service was fine however a little forced to make conversation with us. The food was just ok, not the best Italian I have eaten. The place lacks atmosphere and could be a lot better with a bit of imagination, music and decoration.
Luigi Malones Restaurant
5/6 Cecilia Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin
I don't know what the fuss is about this place!!!! I have had better food and service down my local pub!! The food was well over priced and lacked flavour and taste. The main course came without chips or veg - if you wanted them you had to pay extra - what a rip off!!! The tables are too close to one another and you're cramped which means you wo0't linger - not a bad thing if you want to listen to other peoples conversations. Will not be back for more.
Il Fornaio (Raheny)
55 Kilbarrack Road, Dublin 5, Raheny, Dublin
Very disappointed with this place - this place seems to be suffering from some type of identity crisis. It is a peculiar cross between a fast food cafe and shop. My advice would be to decide if you’re a restaurant or cafe / shop!!! I ordered the bruschetta for starters - it was ok but cold. For mains I ordered the traditional bolognaise - this dish lacked flavour and MEAT!!!!!!!!!! At first I thought I had gotten the vegetarian option as I could find no meat in the dish. My advice is never to sit at table 6!! If you do the chef stands opposite you and when he is not busy will stare at you which is off putting. The tables are packed together and you’re wedged up behind the table behind - so you have to apologise if you try and move your chair. There is constant movement past your table when you are trying to eat - people brushing passed you as you try and eat is not great. A real let down - will not be back for seconds
The Upper Deck duplicate
Harbour Road, Above the Waterside Pub, Howth, Dublin
Had dinner with my friend the other day - what a treat!!! The service was excellent from the moment we stepped into the restaurant to the moment we left. The location and the food is excellent and very good value for money. Oddly they have their bad review posted all over the building and the staff are very unhappy with this review. Based on my visit to El Paso I have to disagree that the bad review was not warranted. Excellent Northside Restaurant. Will definitely be back for more!
1 Shantalla Road Beaumont, Beaumont, Dublin
Had dinner here last night with a friend and was quite surprised given the bad reviews I had read about this place. Was quite surprised with this place - our waitress was very nice and was very helpful. The food was good - I had the lasagne with chips and salad and my friend had the half a chicken - both of us cleared our plates. The food was piping hot and the portion sizes were very healthy. No complaints about the food or service - prices were no different to other pub grub. Will visit again
Captain America's Cookhouse And Bar
44 Grafton Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
This place is great during the day for families or late in the evening for a work night out. The food is ok - I had the lasagne for mains - it was ok, but the pasta layers were stuck to the dish which seems to suggest it was a bit over cooked. Our waitress was fine however not the friendliest person I have encountered - we got service without a smile :( . However the Aussie guy on the door made up for her lack lustre approach - top marks to him for making us feel welcome!!! Overall not too bad of a place for a quick bite to eat.
TGI Friday (St Stephens Green )
St Stephens Green, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
The staff & service are surprising very good for such a busy city centre restaurant. Was greeted by a warm smile on entering the place and was brought straight to our table. Our waitress was very friendly and good at her job - despite being busy she offered us refils on our drinks without us having to ask. Overall we were served very well by all the staff and they seemed all to be happy when asked for sauce etc Food was fine - no complaints - simple typical American style food. The menu is good and there is something for everyone Overall a good experience
Arc Cafe Bar
Liffey Vallley Shopping Centre, Fonthill Rd, West Dublin, Liffey Valley, Dublin
Lovely food, excellent service and friendly staff - what more could you ask for? Well worth a visit if you're near Liffey Valley. Will definitely be back !!! Nice relaxed atmosphere
The Porterhouse (North )
Cross Guns Bridge, Glasnevin, Dublin
Three of us ate here last night and I have to say I wont be back!! The service was extremely poor and our waitress could not explain in English what was in the house salad - however she could explain in 'her own language'. The garlic bread was ordered as a starter - this was bland and not Garlic Bread as you know it. The starter was served at the same time as one of our main courses at 8.48pm We had to tell our friend to start eating her main course at 8.55pm as being polite she was waiting for our main courses to arrive. At 9.23pm the other two main courses arrived - just in time as we were getting up to leave - I wish I had!! Pizza had no base sauce and the garden salad was a bit of lettuce with loads of cucumber. Very dissappointed with this place - will not be back Chip portions could feed a sparrow!!!! Service staff stand around talking to one another instead of serving their cusomers!!!
Newlands Cross, Naas Road, West Dublin, Clondalkin, Dublin
Have been to Joels a few times and still unable to finish all my food. Joels menu is pretty varied. There is a great vegetarian option - which is rare for a Dublin retaurant. We ordered the platter for two for starters - I have to say this was very expensive and not worth the money. Our waitress was very friendly and the service was very good - no faults there. The main course of beef lasagne was bland and lacked taste - I left half the lasagne as it was not worth wasting my calories on this stoggy dish. Unfortunately there was not much meat or tomato sauce in the lasagne - as a result the lasagne was dry to taste. Portion sizes are very good - good for families as you could share alot of the main courses. The Joel burger is good value for money and a healthy size Overall the food could be improved - service was very good. Stop putting paprika on all the plates as decoration!!!
The Wicked Wolf
2 Main Street Blackrock, Blackrock, Dublin
Had lunch in here on a few occasions with friends - the staff are always changing so it is hard to get good service. The food is over priced and a little limited in its choice. If you don't like steak or chicken you're pretty limited to what you can order as a main course. There is no real vegetarian options to speak off - however I was offered vegetable soup with a cheese sandwich. Nothing exciting - if you like greasy over priced chips this is the place for you!!
Cactus Jacks (Middle Abbey St)
Millennium Walkway, Middle Abbey Street, City Centre North, Italian Quarter, Dublin
Cactus Jacks - this place was a real let down - not worth a visit in my opinion. The food was bland and over priced. I had better Mexican in fast food in the USA!!! The waiters seemed to be bored to be working - they never asked if everything was alright when they served the food. There would be a better atmosphere on the moon than in this place. Will not be back for seconds!!!
TGI Friday (Blanchardstown)
Blanchardstown Shopping Centre, Dublin 15, Blanchardstown, Dublin
Food is over priced and the service can be very slow. The staff cannot seem to remember who ordered which item, so you spend time directing food to the correct recipient. The staff are not very friendly and can struggle to understand requests not on the menu. There is no welcome at the door and there is no gratitude from them if you leave a tip - they seem to think it is their right to receive one! Staff turnover seems high and this could be a factor in the lack of warmth to the place. Over priced and under staffed by good keen staff.
Kealys of Cloghran
Old Airport Road, (Off Airport Roundabout), North Dublin, Cloghran, Dublin
Kealys one of the best kept secrets in Dublin. The food is lovely and the portion sizes are big. The staff are very friendly and will get you anything you like once they have it in stock. The only down side is the lack of vegetarian options. Stir fried noodles with oyster sauce is not in my eyes vegetarian as it is made with fish sauce. Anna one of the Dublin waitresses is lovely, very friendly and will great you with a smile and chat to you for a while. I love this place - however upstairs on a Sunday can be a bit busy with families who travel out here with all their children. Would highly recommend if your looking for good honest priced Dublin grub. The family would love if they would add lasagne to their menu. Their soup is lovely and is a healthy portion size.
Dobbins @ The Park
South Lotts Road, Dublin 4, Ringsend, Dublin
The staff have problems getting your order correct - this could be due to their lack of English. If you order sauce etc they will arrive after your meal after you have requested them 4 or 5 times. There vegetarian options are non existent and you are limited to one choice, which is not good. The children’s menus is over priced. The Northern Irish Manager is very pass remarkable and makes comments if you order extra. The seats are cramped and you’re forced on top of one another. You cannot get out of your seat without hitting the person behind you - there is no room to swing a rat let alone a cat.
