Favourite place to eat in Dublin! We had the steak tartar to start and ribs N rump for main. The former was small, expensive and delicious, the latter was a huge heap of meat! Washed down with the staff recommended red (the name of which escapes me). The staff were amazing, as always. Great dining experience!

Reviewed 19th September 2014 ( visited 18th September 2014 )

Food was great, wine was good for house wine. My only gripe is that because we were there early you get put in the front (by the windows). The Atmosphere isn't as nice there as further back in the restaurant. Early bird is great value (despite us being there on a voucher) but sitting where we were I would find off putting to going back.

Tavern
Dylan Hotel, Eastmoreland Place, Dublin, Ballsbridge, Dublin

We went here with a voucher for a 3 course meal and a bottle of wine. The menu was reduced as you might imagine. For starter we both had ham hock which was very well presented but nothing impressive for taste. The other options were a blue cheese soup or smoked salmon, neither seemed appealing. For main we both had a duo of beef. Again, very well presented but very disappointing. The potato dauphin was just a rectangle of potato, the beef was a small cut of what tasted like rump steak and I'm not sure what the second "beef" was on the plate, it may have been the tiny breaded sphere that resembled a scotch egg. Brownie for desert which was "ok". Overall all the food, while presented well, looked like the kind they can prepare on mass in order to sling it out the door. The purpose of these vouchers can be to tempt you to return or to make a quick buck. This one was the latter. During the meal service was attentive, but once dinner was finished it was a chore to get the attention of wait staff for the bill and it took 15 minutes after getting it for the credit card machine to arrive The house red wine was only very "meh". I have no plans to return

Platform 61
27 South William Street, South William Street, Dublin

I may have found a new favourite place. Had a meat/cheese platter and a starter for a small dinner. The food was fab, all the staff were some of the nicest I've ever spoken too. This is a fantastic place for date. Top notch all around.

The Purty Kitchen
4 Old Dun Leary Rd, Monkstown, Dublin

Food is good, the combined starter / desert offered with the menupages voucher (and maybe the set menu?) is a great idea. BYOB Mon- Thu is a real pull. Service was slow and the tables were a little cramped, it was difficult to enjoy conversation when sat next to a very loud woman. Nice place overall and I'm open to returning.

Bistro Brazil
Parnell Street 143, Dublin 1, City Centre North, Dublin

Food tastes very deep friend and salty, not of high quality but fine. Deserts are amazing. Table was sticky. Don't expect much but not a place to go out of your way to avoid.

Il Vignardo
Beresford Hotel, 21 Store Street, City Centre North, IFSC, Dublin

Steak had a great charred flavour on the outside but was surprisingly bland overall. The Decor in the place is lovely and the service is really great. I would happily go back but I don't think I'll be beating down the door.

Wrights Findlater Howth Restaurant
Findlater House, North Co. Dublin, Howth, Dublin

Fantastic place! Didn't expect much going in but the restaurant upstairs had a great view and a lovely atmosphere. The staff were super friendly and really made the night. One of the best places I've visited in Howth so far and I look forward to returning.

Brasserie 7
The Capel Building, Capel Street, Dublin 1, City Centre North, Dublin

This place continues to improve on each visit. The food was great as it was last time but the portions have gotten just a little bigger which is great! The staff are super friendly and the early bird is good value for money.

Restaurant Ten Fourteen
324 Clontarf Road, Clontarf, Dublin

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Dublin. Simple food done really well. Excellent service. There was even live piano playing for our visit. The charity aspect only adds to the place. I love it and can't wait to go back already!

Dorans at the Beachcomber
179 Howth Road, North Dublin, Killester, Dublin

This place is nothing short of excellent. An array of public transport can get you here, the food is amazing and fishy! The wine was tasty and reasonable priced, the staff were awesome. The worst I could say is that the portions were a little on the small side but really that would nit picking. Can't wait to return!

Kinara Restaurant
318 Clontarf Road, North Co. Dublin , Clontarf, Dublin

This place is amazing! I've never been so impressed by a place serving this style of food. The service was second to none too! Kinara is a little pricey but worth every penny.

Excellent food, excellent service, Wine was good but they didn't have my original choice. Top notch place and probably my favourite in Dublin

KC Peaches Pearse Street
Unit 10A Trinity Enterprise Centre, Pearse Street, Dublin 2 , Grand Canal Dock, Dublin

Simple food but lots of it. Great spot to people watch. Staff were very friendly. Would go again if I was in the area but would not make a trip specially to go here.

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

Portions were small but filling, wine was delicious. Service was excellent in my opinion (but other patrons that night seemingly disagreed!) Ate here with a voucher and plan to do so again.

Le Bon Crubeen
81-82 Talbot Street, Dublin 1, City Centre North, Dublin

Friendly staff, nice place (perhaps a little too warm). Food was perfectly nice. Overall a good place, perhaps slightly too expensive.

Brasserie 7
The Capel Building, Capel Street, Dublin 1, City Centre North, Dublin

I had been here some 7 months previous but on this visit it was like a whole new restaurant. Where before there was very little atmosphere this time it was cosy and very pleasant. The live piano and singer really added to it. Poritions were small and not cheap but very tasty. Cocktails tasted nothing short of excellent but, again, not cheap at 8 euro a pop. Very nice place overall and a huge improvement over last time

Restaurant Ten Fourteen
324 Clontarf Road, Clontarf, Dublin

Everything about this place was great. Starter was black pudding in Filo pastry, main was lamb burger/rib eye steak and Espresso & white chocolate bruleé / Pear tart. Wine was a delicious Rioja wine for €33. To top it all off we discovered in restaurant that ten fourteen is owned by an Irish charity, CASA. I think I found my new favourite eatery in Dublin!

The Dandelion Restaurant
1st floor, Unit 4, Main Street , Swords, Swords, Dublin

Bad luck that last night they ran out of a lot of food options (Fillet steak, chesecake, carrot cake and another main) but the food that did arrive was great. The Decor of the place is nice but the restaurant is bathed blue light, it would be better with a warmer colour. All in all a nice place and will visit again.

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

Went with a voucher which restricted us to the €35 set menu + a bottle of wine. For starters there were HUGE chicken Skewers and prawn skewers, both delicious. Main's were stuffed fillet of pork (€3 suppliment) and a bottle of Rioja that just tasted like chocolate, it was delicious! The only even slight downside was actually how fast the food came out. It gives the impression that everything is constantly being cooked the kitchen and it gets carted out. This isn't so bad as with busy set menus it makes sense, but it didn't give time to let the food rest and felt a little rushed (3 courses in about 1h 45) All in all a good experience and would go again

Whitefriar Grill
16 Aungier Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin

Food and atmosphere were both brilliant. The service was middle of the road and not very attentive but that may have been due to how busy the place was. I didn't see any table getting better service so I do think it was a staff:customer ratio more than anything else. Will be back

Bar 52
52 Middle Abbey Street,, City Centre North, Dublin

I feel bad leaving a poor review because the barman was nice but very overworked. The food (garlic mushrooms to start, Cod and chips for main) seemed to come from a freezer, to a fryer, to our plate. It was so-so even for pub grub. We had a voucher for this visit making it not terrible value, but for the love of god don't go here and pay full price.

Carlo's Restaurant
63-64 O'Connell Street, Dublin 1, City Centre North, Dublin

Fillet steak is a bit stringy and smaller than I remember. Chips are bog standard out of a bag in the freezer. Waiter was lovely and wine was pretty good for house wine (Montepulciano D'Abruzzo) It's a decent place but not a great place.
