Stopped by for lunch in one of our favourite restaurants. We've been going every two to three weeks for years and yet to have a bad meal. As normal service was excellent and attentive. The star dish was super fresh Duncannon Cod with a mustard and shallot cream accompanied by grilled aubergine. My burger was fine if a little overcooked but still and excellent dish. We had one shared dessert of a rhubarb and plum tart which was scrumptious. This restaurant is well worth a detour for those who have not yet visited. The artwork is worth a browse but the food is always excellent.

MacNean House & Restaurant
Main Street, Blacklion, Cavan

This was our first visit to McNeans and we were really looking forward to something special having received many recommendations. Initially everything was excellent, great amuse bouche, superb starters of scallops and prawns. The only negative was the length of time it took to take an order on being seated, but the room was completely full. McNeans has an excellent and well priced wine list including some really good wines by the glass, which is refreshing. The mains were a different story, my beef was excellent but my better half's turbot was quite overcooked and we sent it back. There are some lovely touches in the restaurant especially the delightful bellek tableware. The most disappointing thing is the service which is not a match to the standard of food. This really needs to be improved. Desserts were another disappointment the sorbet and ice cream on both assiettes, one chocolate and one raspberry, had melted by the time they were were served. They should not have been let out of the kitchen. Some aspects of this meal were excellent and some were poor. We would have expected much more consistency especially on service.

Vie de Chateaux
The Harbour, Naas, Kildare

This has to be be one of the best restaurants for lunch we have been to. We normally go for dinner (when we can get a table!) and it's always good. Lunch is a real treat. Great value for money and a clever innovative menu. It's like walking into a real french bistro in Lyon or Paris. We had a wonderful hake dish and a big plate which consists of a starter and main course all in one - in this case a smoked chicken and apricot salad followed by excellent duck confit and mustard sauted new potatoes. Even though it was very busy, service was good and efficient. We would highly recommend their monthly wine selections which never fail to satisfy. If you do make it for dinner don't miss the garlic prawns with fresh sourdough bread - magic. Oh - and the desserts are cracking too! I would love to see this team in a bigger restaurant - just so I can get a dinner booking more often!
