Got the two burgers and two sides voucher for 20 which is good value considering most of the burgers on their own are over a tenner. Burger was delicious fresh lots of toppings a nice kick off the Mexican which I had

It says on the menu where their chicken wings are listed 'It's what were famous for' well if that's what you're famous for then I'm amazed they are still in business. The wings were terrible one of the worst I've ever had chewy, cold and a horrible sweet BBQ sauce really bad. Burger was ok but very greasy very standard fare. The atmosphere is non-existent and the service was passable, in a good restaurant I'd stay maybe 2 hours sometimes more we were in and out of this place in 25 mins

Hang Dai
20 Camden Street, Camden Street, Dublin

Went in here with a voucher we were sat at the bar which frankly wasn't comfortable but they did move us to a table when we asked if we could move. Service was good starters were ok but I did send my Monkfish main course back as it was very bland they gave me a sweet and sour Prawn dish which was much nicer. The rib of Beef dish in black bean sauce the meat was very fatty. Overall had high hopes for this place but in the end it was underwhelming

Gallahers Bistro
16A D'Olier Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

We had a voucher for dinner but were told we couldn't avail of BYOB with the voucher that was never specified in any of the terms or conditions but that wouldn't be completely the restaurant's fault. The wings were nice but there was only 4 of them and the tzaziki dip just tasted of pure salt. The Daube of beef the meat itself was nice and tender but the sauce\gravy was very thin, there was very little mash and the mushrooms were thin and stringy and had a horrible texture. The best course was the cheese board for dessert they was big chucks of chedder, cashel blue, goats and brie with crackers grapes and chutney very nice. The food was up and down but the service was mainly down very slowly between courses there clearly wasn't enough staff on both the floor and probably the kitchen aswell. Basics like cutlery were forgotten and my friend asked for a cup of tea when we finally ordered our desserts she had to ask for the tea again when the desserts finally came. Overall disappointing but maybe we got them on a bad night wouldn't be rushing back though

Beeftro - Balfe Street
5 Balfe St, City Centre South, Dublin

Had a voucher for 3 course for 40 quid good value but limited menu to choose from. Wings were good the chrizo bread in the cheese sauce was nice but a bit heavy for a starter. One of the two steaks were overdone we asked for both medium but one was well over and quite dry. The creme brulee was nice the chocolate mousse was nothing special. The seating in the restuarant to say it was warm was an understatement these open kitchens not a fan but the service was friendly and efficent. Overall solid but wouldn't be rushing back

The Mint Leaf (Dunboyne)
Summerhill Road, Dunboyne, Meath

Very reasonably priced and the steak was very good. Only critism there was a lot of smoke was coming from the kitchen which overlooks the dining room. Some nice craft beers on the menu aswell

Brasserie Sixty6

Very good value with the 2 course meal for 20 quid voucher. Service matches the food can be a bit noisy when its busy but a minor fault in an otherwise great place

Koh
6-7 Jervis Street, Millennium Walkway, Dublin 1, City Centre, Italian Quarter, Dublin

Restaurant is quite big and a bit on the dark side very little natural light. Food is very good value 2 courses for €20. The starter was ok it was a thai sausage inside a lettuce leaf with chilli and a sort of mango sauce was nice but the sausage was a bit dry. The main was a shredded chicken dish in a kind of spicy soy sauce but it didn't come with any rice or noodles. We were very full and the waitress let us take the rest of our food home in containers which was a nice touch. Overall solid I would go back but order different dishes next time

PHX Bistro
12 Ellis Quay, Ellis House, Smithfield, Dublin 7, City Centre North, Dublin

We ordered from the 3 course set menu which is good value for the selection that's offered. The salmon starter was nice but very bitter it needed something a little sweeter to break up the taste. The duck pate was lovely and the waitress twice gave us more bread when we ran out. I had the ribeye with the truffle mash which was delicious the pepper sauce with it was just a little thin. My girlfriend had the lamb which was also lovely it was served pink and very tender. We finished with the baileys panna cotta and the vanilla cheesecake which had a fruit compote on top which provided a nice balance of flavour. The waitress was very nice and accommodating we couldn't fault her. Overall lovely food and service its a great little place

Okra Green Castleknock
Unit 1, Village Shopping Centre, Dublin 15, Castleknock, Dublin

We had a voucher from menupages but I was told there was a €3 supplement on the prawn starter and all of the fish mains which was not the voucher's terms and conditions which was slightly annoying. I went for the prawn starter anyway even though there was only 3 on the plate they were very big and very tasty full of flavour and cooked well. My girlfriend had the duck spring roll starter which was also very nice very thin flaky pastry and a lovely filling. The mains too were lovely maybe could have done with a bit more meat but the chicken in the jalfrezi was delicious and I got a cheese naan on the side which was very nice also. The meal was finished with pistachio nut ice cream which was also very nice and not too sweet. The décor in the restaurant was nice it was a little dark but the seats were very comfortable. All in all a good experience
