Cape Greko (Malahide) restaurant
Unit 1 First Floor, New Street, Malahide, Malahide, Dublin, Area Code: North Co. Dublin
Reviewed 20th August 2007 ( visited 20th August 2007 )Cape Greko is an excellent restaurant. I have eaten there many times and have always had a great time. The starters are delicious - I highly recommend the Keftedes, Hummus and Tzatziki dip, as well as the fantastic Meze platter. I'll admit to repeatedly ordering the same main course - Beef Stifado. It really is that good. The atmosphere in Cape Greko is pleasant, the service good and the decor fresh and appealing. The early bird is superb value for money.
La Caverna Restaurant & Wine Bar
12 Fownes Street, Dublin 2, City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin, Area Code: Dublin 2
Reviewed 19th August 2007 ( visited 19th August 2007 )I had dinner in La Caverna on Friday night with three friends. We all enjoyed the food, which was reasonably priced and tasty. The atmosphere in the restaurant is very pleasant indeed, especially downstairs. However I have to deduct a star for the service - we waited more than an hour for our food! Not good.
7 Anglesea Street, Temple Bar, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
I always make a point of taking visitors to Dublin to the Mongolian Barbeque - it's just so much fun! The food, of course, is as good as you make it, and half the fun is not knowing what your concoction will taste like. The fact that it's all-you-can-eat takes the fear out of the process - don't like what you've got? Make something else, or better still get one of your friends to! One thing's for sure, a trip to this place is always entertaining!
1 Crow Street, Temple Bar, Temple Bar, Dublin
A superb Cajun/Creole restaurant. New Orleans is my favourite city in the world, but the best gumbo I've ever had was here at Tante Zoe's. Their menu changes from time to time, and I have eaten both catfish and swordfish here in the past, two of my favourite things. Eating here is always a joy - the next best thing to a night out in the French Quarter.
30 Dame Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
Simply the most delicious kebabs in Dublin, with good quality meat, and plenty of it! The ambiance is practically non-existent, and the seats are terrible, but the food... wonderful!
4B Montague Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
I am surprised that Cafe Bliss has received any negative reviews. I love the place! I have eaten there several times in the last few weeks, and couldn't have enjoyed it more. The staff are very pleasant and efficient, and the food simply mouthwatering. I normally get either the Chicken Caesar wrap or Brunch wrap, and they are so delicious it may be some time before I explore the rest of the extensive menu! My wife loves the Greek Salad - in her view, one of the freshest, tastiest salads around.
Millennium Walkway, Dublin 1, City Centre North, Italian Quarter, Dublin
Simply amazing! Probably the best burritos I've had this side of the Atlantic! The key is to order your burrito without rice. They're not only delicious, but huge, and an absolute steal when you consider that there are Mexican restaurants in Dublin who charge €18 for a burrito! Service is efficient, and while the place lacks atmosphere, the smiles on the diner's faces more than makes up for that! You'll be smiling too!
Siam Thai (Malahide)
1 The Green, North Dublin, Malahide, Dublin
A great Thai restaurant, with a Beef Massaman curry to die for. Their lunch specials are an absolute steal at just €15 for 3 courses. I usually go for the pork ribs and the massaman. The Bento boxes are also great value. I don't know how they can offer food this good at such low prices, but I'm not complaining!
Harveys Bar and Grill Restaurant (Above Harvest Bar & Lounge)
Main Street, Balbriggan, Balbriggan, Dublin
I recently had dinner with friends at Harvey's and had a great time. The American-themed decor is great fun, and as a lover of proper American food (not fast food), I found the menu to be spot on. I had the Buffalo Wings to start, and the Cheese and Bacon Burger for my main course. Both were delicious - good simple food, prepared to perfection. Our server (a genuine American) was very attentive and really enhanced our enjoyment of our meal. The food was also great value - we certainly got big portions for the price. All in all, Harvey's is a nice, unpretentious place to have dinner. We all left with big smiles on our faces!
6-7 Jervis Street, Millennium Walkway, Dublin 1, City Centre, Italian Quarter, Dublin
I had been wanting to try Koh for a long time, and so recently took my wife there to celebrate her birthday. We had a fantastic evening. The decor is classy and the ambience sophisticated. We ordered from the pre-theatre menu, and I had the Baby Back Ribs to start, and the Red Beef Curry as my main course. I absolutely loved the curry; it reminded me very much of a Beef Massaman, only at a bargain price. My wife also had the Red Beef Curry, but started with the Chicken Satay, which she thoroughly enjoyed also. My only complaint would be that the server brought us Prawn Crackers without us asking for them. Naturally, we assumed they were complimentary, and so were not pleased when we found them added onto our bill at the end of the night. They apologized for the mistake however, and took the crackers off the bill. All in all, though, we had a great meal, and are looking forward to going back!

Middle Abbey Street, City Centre North, Dublin
I love Christophe's. Since discovering the place in late June, I have eaten there six or seven times. The food is sublime. My favourite is the Cajun chicken wrap with side orders of rice, and tomato and feta cheese salad. This is real food. It almost seems home cooked. Certainly, it is prepared with a level of care and passion that is rarely found in this price range. I cannot recommend Christophe's highly enough. I only wish they stayed open later. Their dishes are rather large for lunchtime, yet any time I go to the Epicurean food hall for dinner, Christophe's seems to be closed!

The Woolshed Baa & Grill
Parnell Street, The junction of Jervis street and Parnell street., City Centre North, Dublin
Magnificent pub food at very low prices. I've been eating and drinking here for years, and cannot recommend it highly enough. The Woolshed burger is in the great Australian tradition - filled with beetroot and topped with a fried egg. It's better eaten with a knife and fork than with your hands! The all-day breakfast is another favourite of mine - try finding better value in Dublin for €7.00! A vast amount of food, and cooked to perfection. The Woolshed also offers great value platters and excellent steaks, although I'm sad to see that Kangaroo baguettes are no longer on the menu. Overall, a great pub and a fantastic place to eat.
1 West Pier, Howth, Dublin 13, Howth, Dublin
Very disappointing. I had heard so many good things about Aqua, and was expecting something truly special. The views of Ireland's Eye and Howth harbour were beautiful, and the service was good. However, the food was seriously overpriced. Presentation came at the expense of flavour, and the portions were small. I chose to forego dessert and went for a walk and an ice cream instead. I do not expect such mediocre food at any price; certainly, a fantastic meal can be had for €10 in any number of city centre eateries. My meal cost considerably more than €10, yet the highlight of the evening was the ice cream.
