Reviewed 08th March 2010 ( visited 06th March 2010 )Went here for a friend's birthday & it was really good! Food was soo good - definitely recommend the goat's cheese starter! Home cut chips are really good too! Had the pan seared pesto chicken for mains & it was very tasty. Could have done with a little bit more sauce on the pasta though. Place was bustling but felt it lacked just a wee bit in atmosphere. Maybe the music needed turning up a notch! Service was very efficient & food came out really fast. Definitely recommend a visit!

Reviewed 28th February 2008 ( visited 10th December 2007 )Heard loads of people raving about this place, in particular their chicken wings, so when we headed out for lunch one day - I was expecting great things! Portions were v.generous & staff were pleasant. Took awhile to get our food though & I had the garlic & brie burger - wasnt as fantastic as I was expecting, abit bland! Dessert in the form of chocolate sundae was yum! Will visit again to give it another go!
Moor Lane Cashel Co Tipperary, Cashel, Tipperary
Went there for a late lunch and it was my first time in there. I had heard great things about the place and it rang true. Food was tasty, extensive menu and lovely staff. It was quiet when we arrived in but it got very busy then. No music from what I can recall but inside decor was nice. We were waiting ages for our food but it was fabulous and we got some really nice bread while we were waiting. I will definitely go back and would recommend to anyone to try, just make sure you're not in a rush!!

Copper & Spice Restaurant
Above The Mill Bar, Anncotty Village, Annacotty, Limerick
Went here as part of a girls night out. We went for 1 of 3 of the early bird options! This option included a starter (which was made up of 3 individual starters of your choice), a main course & dessert for €21. Food was absolutely gorgeous & service was very good up until our main courses were cleared! We attempted on 3 or 4 occassions to gain different waiters attention to order our desserts as we were due to move onto the cinema. This took about 15 ish minutes. We rushed through our desserts & had asked for bill when ordering them. We ended up having to approach the counter on the way out to pay as we didn't have time to wait any longer for the bill. By the time we got to cinema it was booked out! Disappointing end to the night considering it started off so well! Not much atmosphere in the place but we were there quite early, at 6:30 but on leaving at 8 not much still despite how busy the place was. Would recommend giving the place a go for the food & value alone!
Nenagh Road, Thurles, Tipperary
Went with a group of friends for dinner. Food was pretty good & there was lots of it! Service was good, all member of staff were very attentive. No atmosphere in the dining room & all tables were seated pretty much on top of each other, no space & had to squeeze between chairs to go the toilets. We were also told because it was a saturday night, we had to have all 5 courses & pay €60. Thought that this was a bit much considering that there is a recession on & if you didn't want all the courses due to smaller appetite you still ended up paying for it. Felt that a bottle of house wine or 2 should be included for this price considering there were 10 of us @€60 each! The majority of our party were very impressed with the quantity & quality of the food.
Mao Restaurant (Chatham Row)
2-3 Chatham Row, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
Went here last night after work with my friend, food was gorgeous - I would definately reccommend the 5 spice chicken and the chocolate brownie for dessert!! So tasty!! Very busy and a cool restaurant but I din't really feel like there was much of an atmosphere. Staff were pleasant and the food came promptly. We got an offer where there was a starter and main course for €18.95 - which was good, otherwise bill would have been a tad expensive. Definately worth a visit, will most certainly be going back!! :)
4B Montague Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Bobo's Gourmet Burgers (Wexford St)
22 Wexford Street (Beside Whelans), Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
Went here for hungover Friday lunchtime food! I got the grafton, was delicious! Not mad abt the chunky chips, wish i had gone for the skinny 1s which my friend got and were really tasty! Burgers are reasonably priced, don't think I can say the same for drinks and chips!! Not much of a buzz about the place! Staff were friendly and efficient! Worth a try!
The Drury Court Hotel, Stephen Street Lower, City Centre South, Dublin
went here with a friend for a catch up on a Sunday afternoon! Got a meal deal where is was 2 pizza for €15! Pizzas where huge and v.tasty but not v.hot! Place was empty so no real atmosphere! But the bar looked nice! Would go back again!
Gourmet Burger Kitchen (GBK Temple Bar)
Unit 1, Temple Bar Square, Dublin 2 , Temple Bar, Dublin
Passed by here when in Temple bar and decided to give it a go as 1 of our party is a veggie!!! I got the pesteralla, which was really good!! Service on arrival was good, but once we received our food - we were forgetten about until we had finished eating!! It's a bit much having to pay extra for sauces!! Food was tasty though! Lack of dessert options were disappointing!!
6-7 Jervis Street, Millennium Walkway, Dublin 1, City Centre, Italian Quarter, Dublin
Went here with a group & managed to nab ourselves a booth! Food was sooo tasty & service was good! Although a bit hard to grab staff's attention when trying to get the bill!! Really enjoyed the night & have recommended this place to many friends since!!! I will most definately be returning!!
Elephant & Castle
18/19 Temple Bar, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
Went to E&C to hook up with college friends for a catch up, great variety of food on the menu....I ordered the elephant burger which was divine & reasonably priced.. V.disappointed by chips & the side salad was merely some lettuce & tomatoe! Service was friendly though but not much atmosphere. Would def return to try food again....hopefully side orders will be better then!

Solas (Wexford St)
31 Wexford Street, City Centre South, Dublin
Went out for lunch for 2 colleageus birthdays. Food is hit & miss, more so hitting than missing! Service is fast & it's pretty reasonable! Chicken fajitas are pretty poor - find yourself wondering what meat is actually in it! Chicken noodle salad is yum!
8 South Anne Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
Went there with friends, had thee AMAZING goat's cheese crostini to start & we had the harlem pizza & veg curry for mains! food were gorgeous & the wine went down a treat. Bustling place, good atmosphere & always busy! I will be back for sure!!! Tables are abit close together but it's Dublin city centre so it's to be expected!! Go there for a general natter/catch up not an intimate meal! Booking is advised!!

Went went friends after a gig, our orders got v.messed up, service was v.poor quality but thankfully food especially dessert was good! Will give it another go based on my experience in the Limerick restaurant!
The Peppermill Restaurant & Wine Bar
27 Kenyon Street, Nenagh, Tipperary
Really busy restaurant - menu is good, apart from dessert selection! Went on a girls night out - we were waiting about 20 minutes to be seated despite having booked. Starters were gorgeous as were our mains! But our starters had literally just been cleared 2 seconds before our main courses arrived, which was a bit much! 1 of our group got a dessert & it was horrible & was left 95% uneaten & when this was cleared anyway no body asked was it not ok. Which also appeared to be the case throughout our main course - no body came back to make sure that we had everything/were ok! Cocktail menu was good too. Service needs brushing up as does dessert menu. Will return again as I've been here a few times & generally I'm totally satisfied!
