Two very good friends celebrating a birthday had a reservation for 6pm last night. From our arrival to departure, service was always attentive and considerate and the staff beamed. I wear a hearing aid and on arrival I asked the Host if the restaurant's music could be lowered; she immediately accommodated my request cheerfully, which was considerate and both of us could hear each other comfortably. Table presentation was inviting with soft tones and the lighting is well designed (intimate but not dark!) and we FELT very relaxed and welcome. Dinner and wine menus were displayed on our table. For starter I had the chicken liver pate served with two petite finger 'loaves' of home made bread. Main course was Butternut Squash Ravioli-lovely parcels of squash surrounded by a delicate pasta with a 'sea foam' effect on top. Serving sizes were good - I only wish there had been two more as I was starving. Both of us finished with Sherry Trifle, which was a real pleasure,surprisingly light and delicious. Two Americano's completed the meal and we shared a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon (house) which was really good. We also enjoyed a side order of fries- crunchy, with soft potato insides. After an hour of relaxed talk, we had two more Americanos and split a well chosen cheese board which was accompanied by tiny home made crackers - wonderful for nibbling on their own! We had not seen each other in a long time and the staff never made us feel as if we had to leave, we were allowed to enjoy the aptmosphere without any pressure to leave. As we were about to leave, a wonderful surprise-Mr. Munier approached our table to say hello and we had the opportunity to tell him how much we had enjoyed our evening in person. Mr. Munier has also chosen (wisely) excellent front of house and table staff - can't wait to go back-true. Thank you Mr. Munier.

KC Peaches Wine Cave Nassau St
28-29 Nassau St, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Two of us used a voucher special €20 for €40 food/drink value. Arrived on time at 6.30pm and shown to our table for two on the inside room of Wine Cave Restaurant downstairs. Welcoming aptmosphere with candle lit tables. A group of about 12 ladies occupied a long table opposite us across the room and there was a celebratory buzz coming from their side. We ordered two glasses of white wine from the Portuguese wine menue and were pleasantly surprised - quite good. The menue for the evening had a variety of choice, but we wanted to try a little of every thing, so I chose two starters; Crab Creviche and Stuffed Figs with a side of seasonal vegetables in a Hollandaise sauce. My friend had two starters also and the same side. While food presentation was very good and portion size a lovely surprise in its' generosity - it was the flavours of the dishes that made the evening so enjoyable - none of the dishes were 'overpowering' in herb or spice - just right. We topped off the evening with two Lemon pannacottas and coffee. Attentive and welcoming service from both ladies working last night capped this evening. I have eaten here 4 times - this was for me the best evening for food presentation and service - and I thought previous could not be bettered. Well Done.

KC Peaches Cafe Dame St
54 Dame Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Two good friends who have eaten here separately before, on this occasion used a Menupages voucher €25.00 for 4 sharing platters and 2 sides for 2. Were welcomed by Brian upstairs on arrival and shown to lovely table with large glass windows with attractive views overlooking Dame Street Trinity College. We each ordered a glass of sparkling wine and Brian brought over menues and explained how the sharing offer worked. We decided to order a dish of olives (separate to offer) and chose our 4 sharing plates (2 from the Hot menu and 2 from the Cold). The Hot included one plate of skewers of tomatoes/goats cheese/peppers and one of a cheese covered meat dish and the Cold included a plate of melba toasts and delicious dips. Sides were a broccoli and chili dish and one of mushrooms. They were wonderful. A carafe of water was provided as well and we each ordered a further glass of wine while we dined. Food was beautifully served, piping hot and delicious. We felt it represented a good coverage of the chef's versatility and presentation skills. We had a delightful meal and Brian and his colleague were attentive/considerate all evening. Our table for 2, on a busy Friday evening was comfortable and we were never rushed staying until 10.30pm. Great night out! We both ordered Dessert and coffee as extra which topped off the meal. After the excellent attention and food of that night - we both rode home on our separate buses with happy memories of the evening.Thank you Brian and Staff!

Brownes Steakhouse
The Plaza, Blanchardstown Village, Dublin 15, Blanchardstown, Dublin

Lunch with 6 workmates from local workplace. All served within moments of eachother and different options (eg steak, pasta, salades etc). Good friendly service and generous portions. Good value overall. This experience has lead our company to decide to hold its early evening Christmas dinner here in December - better variety and guarantee of good food than some local eateries - despite all the special value menues available. Good lunchtime offer - 9.95 for mains with drink. Thanks Brownes - you've really come on! Going again this week!

Beehive Restaurant
Patrick Street, Portumna, Portumna, Galway

Good food at very good prices. Generous portions - friendly unobtrusive service. Dublin couple visited on a Thursday evening. Were 2nd couple in restaurant and found very welcoming and warm aptmosphere. Lovely aromas coming from chief's station. Ordered Garlic bread each for starter, home-made pizza base (big!) with ham and pineapple for spouse and Tagliatelle Carbonara for myself. Could hardly finish it was delicious. Two glasses of house red (very good) and two desserts (Banoffi pie and homemade apple pie with cream). Total bill under €50. Ideal for families, couples (all ages) and singles also - located on Patrick Street just off Main Street - handy walk from Shannon Oaks Hotel and Portumna Castle - last orders 8.45 Thurs/Fri/Sat and open daily. Very good value and would recommend for locals and tourists alike. YUM!
