My boyfriend and I availed of the couples menu in Dobbins last night - 3 courses, plus a bottle of wine, plus tea/coffee, all for only €70! Everything from start to finish was fantastic: sophisticated, relaxed atmosphere; discreet, friendly service; lots of choice on the menu. I went with foie gras and ham hock to start, followed by veal with prosciutto and gruyere for mains. Gorgeous! My boyfriend's trojan appetite was more than satisfied by traditional prawn cocktail and the house speciality, duck. I don't usually have room for dessert but together we polished off the Dobbins sticky toffee pudding - serious melt in the mouth stuff - and an equally moreish pavlova. We'll be back!

Diep le Shaker
55 Pembroke Lane, (Off Pembroke Street), City Centre South, Dublin

Dined here with a large group on a busy midweek night. There's always a busy atmosphere and the service is consistently excellent. In pairs we availed of the €60 offer per couple - 3 courses each plus a bottle of wine. I've had this deal a few times before and always thought it was great value. Unfortunately my latest experience wasn't so good. For starters I had mussels, 90% of them were closed and so not safe to eat. The chef should really know this before sending out shellfish. Main courses were tasty but the portion have become noticably smaller and I really wasn't that full after my meal, never mind the men at the table! Everyone commented at how the portions have reduced in size. This makes the €60 deal less attractive. Desserts were fine.
