we had my sisters 40th here. just 8 of us and there was great atmosphere and the food was lovely. my favourite is the frito misto in the starters. i had the sharing board of cheese and meats. it comes with pesto, rocket salad, caper berries, a really tasty veg bowl AND different breads. We were stuffed after this and it was just 16euro. I had a starter of frito mist for my main. really good tartar sauce with it. the menu is not too big were you get bogged down with choice but enough where everyone get what they want. Ive been here loads of times and love it. good for family early in the evening and great for fun with friends after half eight.

I had a voucher that I wanted to use before they close up shop. It was sold when they knew that they were trying to sell and never mentioned this to the people whom they sold it to. I was beside a piping hot radiator. My main was a dull piece of turbot slightly over cooked on a round of mash. A spoonful of boring lobster bisque, one slice of carrot, boiled and another boiled potato. I was really dissapointed. The bill came to €320. four of us had three courses and some wine. i'm not surprised they are closing shop. Dated, boring sounding menu. If you have a voucher, use it quick. I would recommend the scallops as a starter and steak for mains and the cafe gourmand as dessert if you have to use a voucher.

The French Paradox Wine Shop & Wine Bar
53 Shelbourne Road, Dublin 4, Ballsbridge, Dublin

i LOVE this restaurant. the food is so good. the cheese and meat laters are so good that i go there and just have wine and the platters. they have lots of lovely salads too. i will say that they used to have better extra bits in the salad like slivers of citrus fruit instead now they have cherry tomatoes. sign of the times maybe. I dont knoe but the wine is lovely. their wines are delicious. num num. we sat outside for a drink while we waited for our table. It gave the night slow feel instead of being rushed through a meal.

Cinnamon (Monkstown)
23 The Crescent, Monkstown, Dublin

I brought my young son here on sat morning for breakfast while the hubby had a late sleep. I wasnt impressed with the choice. My son has an egg allergy and it was really limited for him. I got bacon and toast for him which he liked and eggs benidict for me. The hollendaise sauce tasted strongly of vinegar and it was quite thin. The staff were very nice but I dont think I'll have breakfast here again, but I will try the lunch or dinner menu though.

Seapoint Restaurant
4 The Crescent, Monkstown, Dublin, Monkstown, Dublin

i was given a voucher for christmas and used it for my mothers birthday with my sister. All of our birthdays are close together so we had an early dinner here. we sat in a booth which i like the best. the waiter was very nice when we tasted four wine before we were happy. They have there own fizzy water which is free. that was a nice touch. the food was really good. we all had the rib eye and were very happy with it. cocktails were okay. id been here once before and had a board of fish things cant remember the name of it but that was very nice too.

FXB Monkstown
3a The Crescent Monkstown, South Co. Dublin, Monkstown, Dublin

i live down the road from this restaurant and we go here all of the time. i stuggled with the atmosphere rating on this as we like the relaxed family feeling here. it can be manythings. in the evening it is a pub with good food and in the day it is a restaurant with good beers and wine if you want. it is not a very rowdy pub. you wouldny be going to do shots here but they are a lot of fun. the steak is definatly the one to get and there beef curry with chutney is very nice. homemade brownbread icecream is my sons favourite. all of the staff feel like family now and are really friendly. they never have a problem if you are not happy.

L'Ecrivain Restaurant
109a Lower Baggot Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

We had our wedding lunch here after the walk down the canal from the registry office. They had everything ready and just right. We had the lunch menu which suited all tastes. The service was seamless but very relaxed. It wasnt as expensive as you would imagine from this quality service and food. We didnt have to think of anything and we didnt feel rushed. We had a wonderful day. Thank you!
