We went there for a meal on Tuesday evening, 2 adults + 1 child at 9:15 PM. Good news first: Free private secure car parking and Child eats free !!! Traditional bar food menu, I ordered day's special red curry with jasmine rice (price €10.95), she ordered baked Cod with veges (price €11.95) and child ordered Chicken burger (price: Free). all the food was generous portions, with great taste and professional presentation. My curry was bursting with flavour and aroma, and the chicken was basted in yougurt and spcies for a reasonable time before being cooked thus infusing all the spice aroma and flavour. i didn't try her cod so can't say myself but she was full of compliment too. Chicken burger was good sized portion with cajun roasted chicken and roasted pineapples. Chips on the side. Pints of lager €4.50 each !!! Oh, and since we liked the Jasmine rice so much, half way through our meals, we requested two extra portions of rice for each of us, which was provided promptly and happily !!! In the end the child even got a complimentary ice-cream. the total bill came to €33.90 which I believe was a very good value given the quality and standard of service. All in all we were very happy, and we will go back next time we are in Wicklow town. Thanks a lot again !!!

The Grasshopper Inn
Main Street, Clonee, Dublin

We went there for a meal on Tuesday evening, 2 adults + 1 child. Spacious and well laid out bar restaurant, good menu options and the early bird menu for €15.90 for two courses is good value for money. Their special offer "Steak on a Stone" seems to be a hit, 10 oz sirloin steak with all the sides for €15.00 though none of us went for it as not being too hungry. We had garlic mushroom and soup of the day for starters, child had chicken goujons and chips and a juice. We had thai green curry and chicken goujons for the mains. A glass of wine each for €4.95 Adults: €15.90 per person and child €6.95. We also had desserts, apple pie with ice-cream, and profiterole with cream, each for €4.95. The total bill came to €58.35 Food was reasonably good, atmosphere pleasant and quiet, and the server was polite and attentive girl. We would recommend this place, and would like to return some time soon. Thanks a lot ....

Jausna
1 Lower Mall, Wicklow Town, Wicklow

This place is really disappointing, I went there with my friend and daughter on Monday night, we arrived there at 9:00 PM sharp, ordered at 9:15 and the food arrived at 9:45, there was only one group of four men in the restaurant. There is no kids menu available and no effort was made on their part to advise or help on kids meals. We decided to stay clear of the starters as the menu being so pricey. My friend ordered a saag allo as main, and I ordered a Sheek Kebab main priced at €11.95, which was a very modest portion for that price. I enquired from the server before ordering as to how many skewers of kebab are there on a main portion and he said there are four, however when the food arrived, there were only two skewers of kebab sliced into two halves to make four skewers out of it. I pointed that out, very politely, only to be told very abruptly that there are four kebabs on it !!! got a chicken tikka small portion for the child , priced at €6.95 !!! which was half a breast of chicken sitting on a bed of cold sliced onions !!! no drinks or chips/vegs with this order even !!! We ordered two glasses of wine for €6.95 per glass !!! which was a very cheap wine, bottle would have cost us €19.95 !!! I was so shocked with the prices and poor service I wished in the end that we did not come here in the first place. Oh, and the pilau rice is priced at €3.25 and a plain nan bread priced at €2.95 !!!!! There are so many good eateries around wicklow town, with good value, so I would strongly advise against this outlet unless they do a major price cut / offers and improve service and food standards. Following evening we decided to go elsewhere, and it was an excellent meal at very good prices. To summerise, a very bad value / cheap standards restaurant, that charges five star hotels prices and the food and service is no better than a chipper !!!

TGI Friday (Blanchardstown)
Blanchardstown Shopping Centre, Dublin 15, Blanchardstown, Dublin

We went in there on Thursday night at 7 PM. two adults and one child, the service was appalling, the bottle of house wine was really cheap quality wine priced at €12.99 We had special 2 course meals each adult and kids menu for the child, the service was terrible had to ask the server for everything, when the food arrived the chicken mains was a very small serving of half a chicken breast sitting on top of what looked like a huge bed of lettuce, overall it looked so disproportionate that it would be justified to call it a dish of lettuce with a hint of chicken and no other vegetables were served in this dish at all. Kids meal arrived without the sauce which was requested, and after waiting for the waiter for a few mins I requested him again for the bbq sauce and heard him tut !!!! The the server just kept asking if we needed anything and in the end brought the bill to the table without being asked !!! this was horrible and we wont be going there again ... Sorry ....
