Reviewed 19th February 2011 ( visited 22nd January 2011 )

Have eaten here many many times, last visit was in january 2011 when I hadnt been for a little while. Nothing had chnaged - it was still as good as ever! The service here is always excellent from the moment you arrive. We did have to wait a good bit in the bar as it was so busy but I dont mind as the value and the food is so good. We had the early bird menu on a saturday night this time. So many choices on it, its always changing so you never get bored. Every persons 4 courses were lovely and tasty and the portions are very good. You are never rushed here either so its always a relaxed experience. Even if you come for the EB, you are never made to feel like you should leave the table, yet its always busy and full. Keep up the good work.

Geisha Restaurant & Bar (Malahide)
Marina Village, Malahide, Malahide, Dublin

Attended on a menupages voucher so the review gets a good value for money - but probably a little on the expensive side otherwise. I used to love Cruzzos for the setting so as always the location and views are special. They have done a nice job with the decor but I dont think it needed much anyway. It was a bit cold on a winters night and very empty. It's bigger now - maybe a bit too big. The menu was interesting, nice choices, bit different. Starters were tasty but small portions, mains were very tasty and larger portions, desserts were a complete dissapointment - didnt finish them both were pretty awful and let the food down badly. Service was very good, attentive but not over the top, friendly and welcoming and relaxed. I would visit again for sure but definately would not order dessert and when warmer.

Gourmet Food Parlour Swords
Unit 2 St Fintans, North Street, Swords, Swords, Dublin

Have eaten here many times, for brunch, lunch and tapas nights. So needless to say the fact that I keep going back means I very much like the place. It is such a welcome addition to swords, where we needed a few more good options for lunch/coffee shop in particular. The food is superb, very tasty, fresh, so much choice on the menu and daily specials. Always end up eatign too much. The portions are generous. The service is always with a smile and so welcoming. I love the cosy atmosphere day or night, winter or summer. It gets very busy at weekends so if going with a group booking a table is advisable. Tapas nights also are great. Lovely live music and great atmosphere.

Nandos Swords
Swords Pavilions, Swords, Dublin

Have been here twice now and reserved my views until after my second visit. The food on both occasions was nice and tasty. Very plain obviously so good for plain eaters. I found the service good enough the first time but not so great second time. Left waiting to place order, people skipping queues to order as it was not that organised, dirty plates left on the table uncleared. But the main reason I don't rate the place that well is that I dont find it good value at all. It is basically nice and a bit fancy fast food, where you q to make your own order and pay at the time of ordering, get your own sauces and cutlery, and then the prices charged for this privlidge in my opinion are quite high. We had desserts this time and for 6.45 a pop that was just insane, and the smallest prices of cake came out on the plate that I had ever seen, and no cream could be provided with them as apparantly their cream had all been frozen. One of us had a half chicken and it really was only a tiny bit bigger than my half chicken. For the prices of 2 courses here you can get a proper restaurant service and a 4 course meal elsewhere. As tasty as the chicken is, I won't be returning.

Kung Fu Buffet - Swords
Swords Pavilions, Swords, Dublin

Ok - I hadnt heard great things but decided I'd try for myself. I have been to a few of these chinese buffet type places and always had good experiences. Until now. The place looked like a cheap school canteen. Just mostly long benches for large groups. The atmosphere was non existent. The place although there were a few people there was just devoid of atmosphere. It wouldnt encourage you to stay there long which might be the idea. They had no need to worry as the food was terrible so I didnt eat that much. You pay in arrival, get your plate and go and take the buffet. There was two lines of food. I expected more choice in the first place compared to other places. There was only fruit there for dessert. The food seemed like it had been there for hours and hours - it just tasted stale, or worse - just plain tasteless. I tried a number of things - starters such as chicken skewers, and a number of the mains. The chips were dried up. It was one of the worst dining out experiences I have ever had. And it wasnt worth the money at 13 euro or something for all you can eat when you wouldnt want to eat it and really the choice of mains or desserts wasnt there to justify it. I wont be returning.

Indie Spice Grill
Burgundy House, New Street, North Co. Dublin, Swords, Dublin

Have eaten here a few times and many a good night out. Terrific addition to north Dublin and well worth a trip. There is nothing I can fault with it. The menu is extensive and the food is really tasty and good sized portions. The service is fantastic, efficient and friendly, they are always on hand with some advice or a joke. The decor is trendy and it really feels like you are not in a back street of swords. Well recommended.

Chilli Shaker Indian Restaurant
River Mall, 32-36 Main Street, North Co. Dublin, Swords, Dublin

Eaten here twice now. Found it to be excellent. The service is top class. Great value for money. They also let us sit there all night and didn’t make us feel like we had to get out. In fact they gave us a complimentary drink, which will make us all go back there again. Great menu - very extensive. Nice warm atmosphere also.
