Two of my children brought me to Howards Way yesterday April 20th for lunch as it was my birthday.A lovely restaurant,although it is quite small and reminds me of someones dining room.As it was lunch hour it was packed although the friendly waitress got us a table within minutes.The food was delicious.My son had the full Irish breakfast which is served all day in the rathgar restaurant.My daughter had chicken wraps which came with a choice of two salads.I opted for the special of the day,salted fillet of cod served on a bed of mash with side salad.We also had a portion of chips and coffees.It was truly delicious and all this came to exactly 33.00 euro.Atmosphere and service and staff and cleanliness excellent.You can park in Supervalu across the road.Highly recommended.5 stars!

Really nice food, had breakfast here. Only fault is that it gets a bit busy and had to go to the till to pay, but everything was promptly served and food more than makes up for the business.

his is my still my favourite restaurant ever and I go here regularly at least once a month. The early bird menu is such good value and the variety on the menu is excellent with generous portions and I think something to suit everyone's taste. The house menu that come with the early bird menu is really good. The staff are extremely friendly and the service excellent. I cannot recomend this restaurant highly enough.

I really like this place for breakfast. The whole tables thing has put us off an evening dinner there as you simply cant have a private conversation, its a case of stop talking to let those beside you talk if you get the middle table. You need to ring days in advance and book a private table if this bothers you. Not ideal for families. Great staff though and good food!.

Whilst the room is a little claustrophobic, you cant beat Howards Way for value - the food is nice, service is nice but the all night value menu at 25 euro is fantastic value, I love it for brekkie, when I get time.

Have been to Howards Way twice now and have enjoyed it both times. The early bird lasts all night and you have the choice of the entire menu which is great. The food is lovely and the deal with the bottle of wine per two is very good value and if one of you aren't drinking they will accommodate for both. I recommend this restaurant.

Couldnt believe the excellent value of early bird menu (which is available 7 days/wk!).......25e per person including a bottle of wine.We both had the chicken wings to start and for mains I had the fried stuffed supreme of chicken. Felt the chicken wings needed more sauce/f;lavour, the mains were delicious.Banoffi to finish was scrumptous! Only drawback was at 6.30 on a sunday evening the place was quite empty and not a huge amount of atmosphere,a small point.

The food here is very very good and excellent value for money- fantastic early bird at €25 a head including a bottle of wine for 2 courses. I really enjoyed my meal, for starters I had the chicken wings and there was quite a lot of them- I think the kitchen misjudged how long it would take me to eat them as when the main (delicious duck confit) came up I think it had been sitting there for a little bit- it was delicious but could have been hotter- in future would ask for a little gap between starter and main as it came up quickly. The service was very good and the waiter was very friendly- I’d go back for a return visit.

More restaurants should follow in Howard's Way's footsteps. Their all evening early bird is great value for excellent food. €49 for 2 courses for 2 including a bottle of wine is hard to beat. We went in at 7.30pm on a Friday and were surprised to see it pretty empty - this changed by 8.05 - it filled to capacity fairly quickly. We only booked an hour beforehand so were lucky. It is a small restaurant. Most of the seating is fairly close together but there is a good buzz in the place so you don't notice it too much. The grub was great and the portions are large enough to share. We shared a starter and a dessert - it's the only way you'd be able to taste all 3 courses, 3 full courses would be too much. For starters we had the chicken wings in a sweet chilli sauce. These were tasty but most of the sauce was at the bottom so the top wings were dry, and the bottom ones soaked - only a small complaint. For mains I had the Mixed Grill - I highly recommend it - it had a fillet steak, lamb cutlet and gourmet sausage with large chunky chips and a side of more chips, spuds or veg. The meat is first class - the fillet is a bit small but for the price is great. They don't ask you how you'd like it all cooked though. Also, the fillet is on the bottom of all the meat - don't let it go cold, it takes a long time to get through the rest of the dish. My partner had the pan fried chicken supreme stuffed with goats cheese. This was ok but not as tasty as the mixed grill, we were expecting a stronger flavour of the goats cheese but if it hadn't said it was goats cheese on the menu we wouldn't have believed it. Finally, we had the chocolate torte. We asked the waiter to give us 10 mins before ordering - those mains need time to hit the stomach before topping up with sweets :). We also asked to change the cream for vanilla ice-cream which wasn't a problem. This torte was easily the tastiest, richest, chocolate cake I have ever had - and I've had a lot. Will definitely be back.

I visited here midweek with two friends, and availed of the early bird special value menu. For starters, I had garlic prawns with crispy tomato bread to start, which were deliciously succulent, while one of my fellow diners had the crab cakes, which got rave reviews. The plate was cleared. For main course, all three of us went for the seabass with crab crust, on a bed of potato cubes. The fish was cooked perfectly, and the crab crust complimented the delicate seabass brilliantly. For dessert, I tasted both the chocolate tart and the apple pie. I found both dishes to below the standard of the other courses. The apple pie's pastry crust did not have the crunchy texture that I love. We were seated by the window, and I felt a draft coming in at my back, which took away from the dining experience. I would return to this restaurant, but would make sure to ask for a different table!

Dined here for the first time and I have to say I was really impressed. 2 courses for 2 people and a bottle of wine for €25. Not bad! I opted for the bruschetta for starters which was lovely if a little heavy on the mozzarella. I would have preferred a little more tomato instead but the salad leaves which garnished the dish had a lovely dressing and were delicious. My partner had the chicken wings which I was informed were really good and the portion huge. For mains I had the sea bass on a bed of mash with a crab crumb and he had the Thai Red Chicken Curry. Its unusual and really nice to be asked how hot you want your dish when it is not a specialised Thai restaurant as most places opt for the inoffensive and often bland to the tastebuds mild variety. The fish was delicious and presented beautifully. The thai curry was also really good I was told but impossible to finish after the big portion of wings. The place was really busy on a Sunday evening without feeling cramped or overcrowded. Would return.

A friend and I would go to Howard's Way for lunch after treating ourselves to a facial down at the Kenilworth junction. The trick was to book the facial for 11am on Saturday mornings then dash up Rathgar Ave to beat the lunchtime rush. Anyway, it's been a while since we were there. Last Friday the husband, the 11-year old and I took ourselves to HW. The tables are too close together but business is business. The waiting staff greeted us cheerfully and were efficient all evening. The child ordered his favourite items: chicken wings to start and pork ribs for his main course. He had no complaints about his generous portion of wings (I thought the sauce was a little too sweet) and tucked into his ribs with relish. I started with garlic mushrooms - two caps cleverly joined together to form a ball - and followed with the cod special. I can't remember the spouse's starter but he had the cod too. We agreed that it was very good. Some of the vegetables in my side dish were a little undercooked but passable. Only the child could manage pudding - creme brulee which he razed to the ground! The food is good but not extraordinary, but then neither are the setting or the prices (approx €70.00 for all the food and a bottle of house white). It's a nice place and I would go back.
