Best fish in Ireland. My parents are from Kerry and I love nothing more than dinner in the Point. The fish is amazing, so fresh and tasty. Never in all my time have I gotten a bad meal and I enjoy nothing more than bringing friends down to show them how fish should be cooked. Simple hearty food. A lovely cosy family run restaurant.

Thornton's Restaurant
1st, The Fitzwilliam Hotel, 128 St Stephen's Green, City Centre South, Dublin

We opted for the pre-theatre menu. A real dining experience of haute cuisine. Every course has at least 4/5 elements and the flavours burst in your mouth. Only complaint being main course portions are on the small side. Staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. Kevin Thornton himself came out and spoke with each diner, impressive..... The restaurant recently kept it's Michelin Star and I understand why, it is an amazing experience ideal for a special occasion

Galileo Cafe
Church Street, Cahir, Tipperary

I was down in Cahir for the weekend and we stumbled across this place. Best Italian food I have had in a long time. Pizza was yummy, good ingredients and my boyfriend got meatballs they were also delicious. The staff were super friendly and very accommodating, fitted us in without a booking despite being really busy. A must if you are in Cahir.

La Paloma
17B Asdills Row, Dublin 2, City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin

I went here last night with my boyfriend, the decor is lovely, nice Spanish music in the background and that is where the authenticity stops, the chef was not Spanish and it was obvious he knew nothing about Spanish food and I doubt he ever stepped foot on Spanish soil. The food was horrible, we order a selection of tapas, 2 were edible however the special prawn dish was utterly disgusting. The house wine they served was like vinegar, and the olives were cheap and nasty. All the ingredients used in this restaurant were of low quality. The Spanish race would be disgraced, obviously will not be returning, can't believed this place is open for so many years,,,,,.

Il Segreto
13a/b Merrion Row, City Centre South, Dublin

Starters of duck salad and crab salad were amazing, something to write home about. Steak was amazing, but cod was bland. The staff were inexperienced and she took my boyfriends plate before he was finished rookies mistake. Glad we had a city deal as otherwise it would be an expensive night out, but would be worth the money.

The Chili Club
Anne's Lane, South Anne Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Myself and my partner ate here for the first time on Saturday. We were both very impressed with the restaurant and the service. The green thai curry was delicious. There was a good choice of wine which was reasonably priced. Overall we really enjoyed it and will definitely go back the atmosphere relaxed and staff were very helpful

Cavistons Seafood Restaurant
59 Glasthule Road, Glenageary, South Co. Dublin, Sandycove, Dublin

I went to Cavistons on Saturday afternoon for lunch. I had been looking forward to it for weeks. I purchased a deal from foodies.ie and I was dying to use it. The food lives up to its reputation, good fresh fish and seafood. You could nearly taste the salt water from the fish it was so fresh, delicious simple food, portions are generous, and fish is cooked to perfection. Best seafood restaurant in Dublin by far, expensive but worth every penny.

Dada Restaurant
45 South William Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Dying to try this place as it ogt great reviews on menupages. I had a voucher from livingsocial, which they were not happy with and would not give us a table on Friday or Saturday night after 6.30pm. Deceided to go on thursday night. The place was empty, and it took the staff 15minutes before they took our order. The food was edible but not nice. We ordered the lamb meatballs, which were fine, but could have done with more tomoatoe sauce, as it was dry without. The lamb was falling off the bone but tasteless and for the spicy potatoes, tasted more like frozen wedges from some a supermarket. Not impressed, shame as the inside is really well decorated.

Lagoona Bar & Restaurant
Mayor Square, IFSC, City Centre North, Dublin

€8.95 for a tasty burger chips and salad AND a pint, during soccer matches. No brainer. Book a table and you can pull your own pints, good night out for the boys

Riva Restaurant - Harolds Cross
53 Rathgar Avenue, South Dublin, Harolds Cross, Dublin

Six of us decided to go to Riva for a friends birthday as it's other restaurant Riva in Grand Canal Dock was fab. I cannot say the same for this restaurant. The interior is lovely cosy feel to it. The menu is extensive. The food was unfortunately terrible. Antipasto was horrible dried up salami and lettuce with a few chipped up tomatoes and 4 olives served with stale bread. Not one of us has a good meal. The duck was dry, the pizzas burt around the edges, risotto sticky and gloopy, steak over done. The only good thing about this restaurant was the wine, albeit a bit too pricey. Avoid disappointment.

Roast
10a Merrion Rd, Dublin 4, Ballsbridge, Dublin

Very dissapointed with Roast, it seemed like it was not the finished article. The food was tasty however the portions were small. I ordered the smoked salmon, nothing to it really and the duck and to be honest I was hungry afterwards. I am willing to give it another try as I have read so many good reviews though. I might have to order a desert also!! Returned to Roast on Friday, April 1st, afterwork. The wait staff we were friendly very helpful with the menu and the food was great. We both ordered beef and it was delicious and satisfying. I will be returning

40Foot Bar&Grill;
Pavillion Centre, Royal Marine Road, Dun Laoghaire, Dublin

We went for a bite to eat here one cold wet winters night, we got off the dart and decided not to cook. Having being christmas shopping all evening we were starving. We ordered chicken wings to share, I am a big fan of another restaurnats wings, however these definitely are a good competitor! Fpr mains I had fish pir, really tasty and plenty of fish and creamy sause. My boyfriend had the burger, very tasty and good portion. As it was raining and near Christmas we decided to stay for another drink, lovely place even in the winter for a bit to eat and a drink.

Carluccio's Caffe
52 Dawson Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin

Food here is amazing the ravioli with sage butter is delicious. I took my boyfriend here after a days shopping and it turned out to be a date from hell. We opted for the early bird menu and the waitress was so rude we were both shocked. She took our starters with one hand and threw down the mains with the other it was truly an upsetting date and such a shame as I love the food here. All that is needed is to allow diners time to between courses and less abrupt waiting staff. I hate writing bad reviews so on the positive The deli is a great place to pick up gifts, I bought a friend a gift for a house warming of a box of goodies with pasta, balsamic, pesto and chocolate, and he was delighted with it....

The Purty Kitchen (Dun Laoghaire)
3-5 Old Dun Laoghaire Road, Co. Dublin, Dun Laoghaire, Dublin

Poor standard of fish. To be fair we ordered the mussels and they were tasty, however the crab claws, if that is what you could call them, the smallest I have ever seen were not fresh. The fish pie was thrown on the pate in a bowel with a sour salad and no dressing. The fish cakes were horrible and M & S have better fish cakes. Will not be returning.

Mao Restaurant (Dun Laoghaire)
The Pavillion, South Co, Dublin, Dun Laoghaire, Dublin

We decided to go for a bite to eat when we got off the DART in Dun Laoghaire before going home and we decided on Mao being conviently located and we had not tried i before we were both pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food. The offer a value menu of 3 course for €19.95, choice on the value menu was good. I was not that hungry so I opted for a main only. We shared the chicken wings are they were really tasty very spicy, for mains my friend had beef masamum curry and I had the fish curry, it was packed with fish brursting with flavour. I could not fault either of the mains. The desert was not much to write home about but cheap and cheerful and great for a quick bite to eat on the way home.

Fallon and Byrne
11-17 Exchequer Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

If you are in town Christmas shopping over the next few weeks and fancy a tasty bite and a glass of wine, the Cellar is the place to go. The fish stew is amazing and will warm you up. You can also choose from the selection of food at the deli counter and bring it down stairs to eat. The staff are very friendly and will recommend the prefect wine to accompany your food. You will not be disappointed.

Harrys Cafe Bar
21 Upper George's Street, Dun Laoghaire, Dublin

This place is just around the corner from me and it is very busy for brunch/lunch on Saturday afternoons. I went here on a Thursday night with my boyfriend, we decided to avail of the meal deal. Order two starters and two mains and you get one main free. Great deal and the food is very tasty. I ordered chicken wings really not too spicy, delicious. My boyfriend ordered the nachos, what a feed, plently of cheezy nachos covered in zingy salsa, guacamole and chilli. Mains we went for the fish pie and burger, both packed full of flavour. We were stuffed leaving, great deal if you're hungry and fancy a feed.....

Rustic Stone
South George's Street, Dublin, City Centre South, Dublin

Having never had the opportunity to go to Mint I was dying to go to the Rustic Stone since it opened. I would highly recommend this restaurant for steak lovers. The hot stone is a novelty. I had the Rib eye with the Prawn glaze it was so tender you could cut through the meat with butter knife, impressed. My boyfriend has the sirloin steak meat was great however it was covered in garlic/peppercorns still very tasty but kinda overpowered the meat. We had lovely sides of fries with a hint of truffle oil and baby courgettes tomatoes and avocado, small portions but packed with flavour and perfectly complimented the beef. The atmosphere was bustling and fresh. If you are looking for a treat it's a must, a good night out and great food.
