Yum yum yum is all I can say! Cannot fault this place at all, went here last night with my boyfriend for the Early Bird for €19.95, and it is exceptional value for what you get! For starters I got the Chilli Cheese Nachos, Chilli Con Carne for mains & profiterles for desert and all 3 were beautiful and very generous portions but not too much to leave you wedged before a night out!! The service was fantastic even though they had a huge crowd in for a 30 birthday but were still spot on with everything! Would definitely recommend Cactus Jacks to anyone, and perfect place for a nice meal to get you in the mood for a night on the tiles!!

Firepit
40 Aungier Street, City Centre South, Dublin

I went here on Sat evening to meet a friend of mine for something to eat, just wanted something casual near the center of town and this was perfect. We arrived at 5.30pm so was very early and not many people there hence why I gave atmosphere a 3 but when we were leaving it was getting busy. Food was lovely and the service was brilliant - Also its a BYOB so even better again :)

Reeds on the River at Courtneys
Main Street Lucan, West Dublin, Lucan, Dublin

Once again a beautiful meal in Reed's. I went with one of my friends and we had the menupages deal, the food was just as lovely as when you are paying full price, I have noticed in some places when you have vouchers there isn't as much effort put into the meal. We will be back again soon :)

Di Bella Restaurant (Lucan)
Griffeen Centre, West Dublin, Lucan, Dublin

Again like the person who commented before me, I was very surprised to read the previous reviews about the bad experiences they had here. The last time I was here was on Valentines Day with my partner, we went for the 3 Course Early Bird for €19.95 which was second to none and very generous portions for an Early Bird! The service was brilliant would have no faults there at all. Although there wasnt much of a crowd when we 1st came in at about 7pm, both couples and families came streaming in. I would definitely recommend Di Bella to anyone :)

Lime Tree Restaurant @ Tulfarris Hotel & Golf Resort
Blessington lakes, Blessington, Wicklow

Myself and my boyfriend were staying in the Tulfarris Golf Resort and the dinner was included in the package we got. I have to say in both our opinions, this was the nicest meal we have had out in a very long time, we have not stopped talking about the food since we came home!! I got melon to start and himself the Seafood Chowder and both were delicious, we then both got the Indian Style Chicken Curry and OMG this was just scrumptious! We were too full to have a dessert which was also included so the waiter told us that when we were ready to have it, to ask at the bar and they would send it down!! The only negativity I would say was the service was a bit too rushed but all in all! excellent and we will be definitely back again with friends!

Kasturi Restaurant (Dublin)
Unit 3, Village Court, West Co. Dublin, Lucan, Dublin

I am living local so have been to the Kasturi Restaurant a good few times and every time the food and service is just as good! I would mainly opt for the Early Bird Menu of 2 courses which is fantastic value for €17.95, definitely more than enough food! I would recommed the Prawn Pakora for starters and Buttered Chicken for mains!! I have recommded this restaurant to many people who too think it a hidden gem!

Mexico to Rome
23 East Essex Street, Dublin 2, City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin

I went for the Early Bird here with 2 friends on a Friday evening. We booked our table for 6pm and were told that the table needed to be vacated by 8pm which was more than enough time for us! From the minute we walked in we felt as though we were completely rushed to finish up and get out! At one stage my starter was taken away from me when I wasnt even finished or looked finished for that matter!! The food was only alright, again felt as though it was rushed and just slopped together! All in all we could not have expected much more for an Early Bird for €13 I suppose but it was quite a disappointment when for a couple of euro's more we could have went somewhere else and received a much better deal!

La Banca Ristorante
Main Street, Lucan Village, Lucan, Dublin

I have been to La Banca loads of times and I still cannot fault the food or service. The last time I was there I got the early bird dinner and got the Lasagne and again it was perfect. The portions are very generous and with the bottle of lovely house wine this offer is not one to be missed! The time before we went for the early bird on the Sunday - 3 course meal and a bottle of wine for 2 for €25 each, its for nothing!! This place is starting to become a bit of a regular spot for me!!

Luigi Malones Restaurant
5/6 Cecilia Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin

Ah this restaurant still ticks all the boxes for me! I have been here loads of times before with and friends and partners and was back again a few weeks ago on a girls night out and it is still as fantastic as it was years ago!! The service was brilliant for such a busy restaurant, you would think that they would want you in and out as fast as possible but they were just lovely and couldnt do enough! I have always and will always be recommending this restaurant!!

Acapulco Restaurant
7 South Great Georges Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin

I went here for dinner on a night out with one of my friends and I was pleasantly surprised! I hadnt been to a Mexican Restaurant before and wasnt sure what to expect but thought the food and service here were great!! I ordered Encillada's with Spicy Chicken and they were lovely and the serving was just enough without being too full - just what you need when you are heading out for the night after!! We arrived quite early 6pm on a Friday night and it was fairly quite but by the time we were leaving close to eight the place was packed! One bad point I would have was that we were sat up stairs and there is not much space up there and the seats are quite uncomfortable but apart from that it was lovely!!
