Absolutely wonderful!! We had the 3 course menu for 2 with a bottle of house wine for 60€, amazing value!! My partner had the pork belly for main which was huge and delicious, I had the tiger prawn linguine which was amazing. The prawns were cooked beautifully and the sauce was gorgeous. For dessert my partner had cheesecake, and I was stuffed after my meal so the waiter said maybe I'd like a liqueur coffee instead which I was delighted with!! Well definitely be going back, best value we've had in dublin!!

I have had breakfast here many occasions and it is always lovely, on this particular occasion we were on our way to Town but stopped in swords purely to have breakfast here. The food is great and not too pricey, BUT the staff are appalling. As a worker in the hospitality industry I'm shocked at the service in this place, we had a young waitress who never once smiled or so much as looked at us when she threw our food on the table. The man behind the bar who I'm guessing was a manager of some sort was even worse, he blatantly ignored anyone who went yo the bar, my partner went up to order food and another coffee and was blatantly ignored. He actually walked by him numerous occasions and my partner wasn't the only one he done this to!!! It's a shame as the food is lovely, well the breakfast anyway. I will NEVER return due to the shocking appalling service and they should really invest in some new staff we felt like criminals in the place just for asking for salt and pepper!!

The Grafton Lounge
Unit 2, Royal Hibernian Way, Dawson Street, City Centre South, Dublin

I love the graft on lounge, love the decor and love the atmosphere. Think their cocktails are fab and 2 for 1 is amazing on them as they're great quality, not like most places that do this crappy 5 euro cocktails! The staff are always so friendly, not the quickest service but it's quite a laid back place so you don't really mind, the food is good, not outstanding. There's so many great deals and offers around everywhere at the moment early birds etc and I think maybe the graft on lounge should look at introducing something like this, and make portions bigger. One of my fav bars in dublin though and great for a night out

The Larder Restaurant
8 Parliament Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Absolutely fantastic, we came across the place by accident and liked the look of the early bird so went in, it was early so the place was quiet but the atmosphere was still nice. The waiter was lovely, really friendly and smiley. I had the early bird, for starter we had wings and WOW!! We have had wings pretty much everywhere and anywhere in dublin and these were just amazing, I want the recipe!!! For mains I had the 6oz steak, now usually I love my pepper sauce with steak but they had a special butter with the steak which was fantastic. Gorgeously cooked and the chips were chunky and lovely. My partner had the 9pz steak as it was steak night it was on special. Absolutely loved it here, would like one or 2 more options on the early bird where you don't need to pay a supplement. (First 4 dishes on menu are EB rest are a supplement, there was only 2 desserts included which I found a bit unfair)

JJ O'Malleys
Bridge Street, Westport, Westport, Mayo

Ate here 2 nights out of 3, amazing food!! Tried the prawns and crab claws, smoked salmon and cream cheese, goats chees tart and the black pudding as starters, all absolutely faultless!! Then the first night I had a sirloin steak which I was unimpressed with, the pepper sauce was a bit tasteless aswell. My partner had the lamb which was beautifully cooked! The wedges are massive and amazing, service really great too. Definitely recommend!!!!

Brasserie Sixty6
66/67 Great South Georges Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin

We hadn't booked a table and it was a busy evening so we were lucky to get a table, we were told we'd have to be gone by a certain time which was fair enough!! The food was gorgeous, was a bit dear as we had the a la carte but the 33 euro menu looks like great value would definitely go back
