The hubby and I went back to this lovely little restaurant a couple of years after our first visit. We had tickets to a play so just fancied a quick bite to eat. The place was packed but the staff were on their toes and very personable. The food is honest, no airs and graces about it. Delicious.

Chapter One Restaurant
18/19 Parnell Square, Dublin 1, City Centre North, Dublin

The food is superb and the combinations rather inventive. Service was good, not OTT although the waiter forgot to top up our glasses a few times and the wine was left in the chiller). No value for money whatsoever but all in all a memorable experience. Glad I went.

Taste of Emilia
No. 1 Lower Liffey Street, City Centre North, Dublin

Seriously overpriced. Recession, anyone? The food is excellent but the portions are way too small. I felt like hitting the golden arches after leaving Taste of Emilia. The seating is cramped and the stools are very uncomfortable. The staff do not warm up to regular visitors.

Unit 5,6,7, Clonee Court, Main Street, Clonee, Dublin

I've never been to the actual restaurant but their take away service is very good. The food is always fresh and gorgeous.

Paulie's Pizza
58 Grand Canal Street, Dublin 4, City Centre South, Dublin

Lovely pizza (not the most authentic but good nonetheless). Fantastic value.

Wagamama's Blanchardstown
Unit 410, First Floor, Blanchardstown Retail Park 2, Dublin 15, Blanchardstown, Dublin

The food was divine but pricey! €62 between us and we didn't have much! Robbery. No ambience whatsoever, actually quite chilly, I kept my coat on. Staff were OK.

Millers Pizza Kitchens
50 Upper Baggot Street, Dublin 4, City Centre South, Dublin

My boyfriend had a margherita pizza with added mushrooms. The pizza base tasted like chalk and the overall quality was appalling. Serve this in Italy and you'll be deported. My chicken salad consisted of four strips (four) of chicken drowned in vinegar. The waiter had a face like a wet Wednesday in Kinnegan and made no effort to be pleasant.

Gotham Cafe
8 South Anne Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

The service is always second to none, attentive but not in your face. I've been going to Gotham for at least 14 years now and I was never been disappointed. Great food, good value and their cheesecake is to die for! Definitely a must.

Good food, inventive combinations and generous portions. Very attentive staff. Excellent value for money (roughly €35 each and most of us had a 3-course meal and wine).

Brams Cafe
4 St Aidans Park Road, Marino, Dublin

I've been going to Brams for a number of years now. I used to leave round the corner and - since moving - I find myself making my way back to it at least every second weekend. Good, hearty food, generous portions. Lovely set-up.

Sandbar
193 Clontarf Road, North Dublin, Clontarf, Dublin

We didn't have a reservation so we ended up getting take away (which we didn't mind). Our 2 pizzas were badly thrown together. The staff had run out of large boxes so our pizzas were cut in 2 halves (resulting in 4 small boxes for 2 pizzas, condiment all over the place, runny cheese and burnt edges). The staff (2 chefs) clearly could not cope with the demand (the phone was ringing off the hook). We were told it'd be a 5-minute wait and we ended up waiting 20 minutes. The 2 Italian chefs kept arguing amongst themselves (and the owner) in Italian dialect using expletive terms. Fine if you don't speak Italian but, since I understood what they were saying, it just reflected rather poorly on the whole establishment. I got the wrong order (I ordered a Quattro Stagioni and I got a Quattro Formaggi). I only found out when I got back to the car and I was not in the mood for arguing (it was lashing rain and freezing). We normally love this place but the service on the day was appalling. Food 3. Service 0. Value 0. Up your game, lads!

Milano (Baggot Street)
1 - 2 Haddington Road, Dublin 4, City Centre South, Dublin

The place was jammed and the staff clearly could not cope with the demand. It's always a bad sign when frozen iceberg lettuce is served. The restaurant itself is quite snazzy but totally devoid of atmosphere and the spot lights can be sometimes blinding. Again, Milano evokes images of Italy but the only Italian element in the place on the night was me. The spelling was atrocious, the put-on Italian accents laughable, the food totally unmemorable.

Il Baccaro
Meeting House Square, Dublin 2 , City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin

Finally an Italian restaurant deserving of its name. For starters their bread is not the usual soft roll but proper oil bread. One of the very, very few genuine Italian restaurants in Dublin.

Il Corvo Restaurant
98-100 Upper Drumcondra Road, Dublin 9 , Drumcondra, Dublin

Il Corvo should not rank itself in the category of Italian restaurants. Being a native Italian myself, I was appalled at the poor quality of the food. Chorizo should not even be listed on the menu and neither should iceberg lettuce make a poor appearance in an already dismal menu. Don't even get me started on the spelling, how could they think of being able to cook something they can't even spell? Are these people for real? Have they ever been to Italy? Their so-called double espresso resembled gravy and had an aftertaste which I can only comprare to stricnine. Judging by the amount of satisfied locals chatting away to the owner it is fair to say that fine cuisine is still a distant dream in this otherwise excellent Country.
