Reviewed 27th May 2009 ( visited 21st May 2009 )Another restaurant that lets itself down for inexpensive things. I had the fillet Steak off the A la Carte menu, and the steak was very nice, however it was served with 1 mushroom, and 2 shallots as veg. I love my veg with my dinner really felt the lack of them. At the end of the meal I was eating steak on its own, because all the otherstuff on the plate had run out. If I went back to this, I would be sure to pick something off their early bird menu instead of the main menu. As normally I prefer just a nice main course, the fact that you get a few courses on the early bird, would mean that I would probably get enough to eat this way. Its bad that you have to do this. Maybe if they keep an eye on their reviews here, they might do something to rectify this. Afterall, veg and potatoe are the cheapest foods, it wouldnt cost them much to improve and give proper portions.
Delhi Lounge Indian Restaurant
15 Main Street, Rathfarnham Village, South Dublin, Rathfarnham, Dublin
lovely restaurant, delicious food and very friendly service. Deserves to do well.
Unit 3, Newlands Cross Retail Centre, West Dublin, Clondalkin, Dublin
I've notices when booking a table for the weekends that this restaurant asks how many adults and kids in the party. Beware that if half your party size are kids at the weekends when they are busy you will either be told they don't have a table or they will check and ring you back....which they tend not to. However if you ring and say your party is all/mostly adults....guess what... They have a table for you. Not impressed with this at all
7 Crow Street, Dublin 2, City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin
Flavour in the food was delicious. I had the cod off the early bird menu and while the fish portion was big, beautifully cooked and very tasty... More potatoes and a few veg would have made the dish perfect. Lovely restaurant though
The New Leaf Restaurant
Unit 1, High Street, West Dublin, Tallaght, Dublin
Was very disappointed on my visit to this restaurant as did not find it child friendly at all. Food was served without a smile and throughout the meal staff kept checking to see what food our young children dropped(which wasn't much). Made for very uncomfortable visit. Staff need to find a bit of a happy vibe because not one of them smiled throughout our visit. The food was nice but the overall vibe and the fact that it was not in any way child friendly will mean I will not return. Very disappointing visit.
D'arcy McGee's Pub and Restaurant
Spawell Complex, Templeogue, Dublin
had lunch here a few times, its a carvery at lunch time and is really nice considering the usual quality of carvery. Its nice and quick too if your in a rush. However, once the carvery is finished and it switches to menu and table service, the food is still very nice but its a pity to say the service is very very slow. I will go back regularly as the food is so good, and would love to see an improvement in the speed of table service.
The Blazin Grill Steakhouse and Seafood
Belgard Square, Dublin 24, Tallaght, Dublin
Have been to this restaurant many times since it opened. The food is absolutely gorgeous, really tasty, with generous portions and fantastic value. A good variety of food is offered, and dishes are very well presented. Service is very good, but the clincher is definately the price. You would expect food like this to cost a lot more its really briliant value. will be returning regularly.
Douglas & Kaldi Terrace Cafe and Restaurant
Level 2, Dundrum Town Centre, Dundrum, Dublin
this restaurant has a lovely setting, tucked away at the back of shopping centre away from the bustle. Its fish and chips are gorgeous. Best around I reckon. Had their soup too, and it was lovely and tastly, and a huge portion too. I particularly like they have a very good selection on the kids menu, and even cater for babies, with their mash potatoes with veg soup poured over. five stars.

A great little restaurt, serving top notch food at very reasonable prices. Always enjoyable and definately a favourite.
Cactus Jacks (Middle Abbey St)
Millennium Walkway, Middle Abbey Street, City Centre North, Italian Quarter, Dublin
Tried here again, and ordered the fish bites. Got a plate of chips, with deep fried batter. Was a serious shortage of fish!!. Very disappointed with the food. Value menu is only good with its fair portions of what is offered on the menu. A half a plate of batter with no fish inside is not good value, regardless of price charged.
Purple Ocean Restaurant
St Michael's Pier, Dun Laoghaire, Dublin
There were 3 adults and 1 child in our party. The visit was very disappointing. It was a very hot day, and the windows and doors were open, but the place was absolutely full of flies. The management would want to install some device to attract and kill the flies, as it was like eating in a rubbish tip, and the staffs apologies about it did nothing to improve the fact that it is a health issue, and very off putting. Apologies are not enough. Other restaurants that have windows open in this weather, seem to be able to handle the problem, but this establishment is obviously making no effort. Foodwise, the childs meal was ordered - bangers and mash, with vegetables. Believe it or not, the veg served to the child was pickled cabbage, and brocolli. Its a ridiculous thing to give to a child - pickled cabbage is something a lot of adults wont eat!!. Food was no big deal, and the effort of constantly chasing flies off it took all the enjoyment out of it. Management really need to understand - people will not be happy to eat in such conditions, even if the food was free. But being expected to pay for this enviroment?? I wont be back and will not recommend to anyone.

This restauant is always top of my list when choosing a place to eat in town. The restaurant itself is beautiful. Plates and Wine glasses are used to decorate some of the walls, giving a very stylish look, and they are all kept spotless, not a speck of dust to be seen on them, which is very telling. We had a great value, top quality meal thanks to menupages voucher. Calamari to start was delicous, and plenty to share between 2. Served with lovely fresh dressed salad, and warm bread on rustic bread board. The butter with the bread was room temp, so very easy to spread on the lovely fresh bread. For mains we had the fillet of beef. Cooked to perfection, and huge. Couldnt even finish mine, and hated wasting it, but I just couldnt manage it. It was served with spinnach, green beans, mushrooms and potatoe, with lovely gravy. The steak was so tender it literally broke apart with the knife. A meal to remember and I would highly recommend the restaurant. Go, try, and enjoy. You will return.
Quay 16 Restaurant @ MV Cill Airne
MV Cill Airne, North Wall Quay, IFSC, Dublin
I had been looking forward to trying this restaurant but it didnt live up to my expectations. I found it to be overpriced and gimmicky. My parents had eaten here early last year and raved about it, but said it was expensive. Comparing my experience with theirs, I can only conclude it is still very expensive, but the recession has meant they cut back on the extra touches they did in the past that raised them above other restaurants. I wouldnt go back and wouldnt recommend it to anyone. There are much nicer restaurants about the place.

Unit 11/18 Belgard Square, Tallaght Town Centre, West Dublin, Tallaght, Dublin
I eat here regularly. Its an above average asian restaurant. The beef they serve is always extremely tender. All dishes come with a good variety of vegetables as standard, which is unusual and I really appreciate and enjoy. Dishes are always very tasty and served lightening fast every time. Id love them to start putting brown rice on their menu... that would top it all. Great restaurant!!
The Lord Edward
23 Christchurch Place, City Centre South, Dublin
I found the waiters in this restaurant very helpful. The fish portions were generous, however I would expect that for the prices charged. Had the Salmon Pate to start, this was garnished with a small side salad, which was on its last legs to be honest. If I had salad at home in that condition I wouldnt dream of serving it up on a plate, it would go straight in the bin. Its disappointing to pay 10 euro for a starter that is served in such a condition. Even the lemon on the plate looked dry and unappealing. Overall, its too pricey, there are many good meal deals available in places that serve food as good if not better. This place needs to look at its price list or it will lose out. Dont think Id go back.
236 Lower Rathmines Road, Dublin 6, Rathmines, Dublin
Dont go on a sunny evening, as you will die in the heat of the sun through the window. Window blinds are needed people. Food was lovely, just had burgers and chips, but enjoyed. It was a shame we had to outrun the sun round the restaurant while we ate. We had to move twice during the meal or we would have been more well done than our burgers Obviously regulars knew about this problem, as they were all mashed along one wall of the room. Clever people.

nice restaurant with lovely food and reasonable prices. The air conditioning system has vents over each table and this makes the food cold very quickly. This is a pity, having said that, I enjoyed my visit and will return
Anvil Bistro Restaurant
Saggart Village, Dublin 22, Saggart, Dublin
I once called this restaurant "perfect". Things have changed Im sorry to say. I have eaten here many times, and am now seeing that they sorely need to change their early bird menu and main menu. There have been no changes whatsoever and its getting tired now. My most recent visit was so disappointing I have to post a review on it. The place was packed, and understaffed. Staff were doing their best but it lacked a lot. I ordered the Fillet steak off the main menu, and am at a loss to know how they could serve it up at the price of 32 euro. It was so overcooked it was hardly chewable. The mash must have had a ton of salt in it, I was gasping. I hate paying good money for food that a McDonalds would beat hands down. Disappointed with it.
