I couldn't think of a single negative thing to say about this place. Myself and a friend went for a nice boozy lunch here on Saturday. They have a fantastic selection of Tapas and Pinxtos, the portions are the perfect size, the ambience is wonderful, service is great and to top it off it is brilliant value. Their wine list and selection of ports and sherries are also excellent. It can be hard to get a table sometimes in the evening time but stick it out because I promise it's worth the wait.

Went here for a quick bite last Saturday night on our way out. I've been here many times before,normally with bigger groups. Didn't feel that it's an ideal place for a couple. Tables are close together and you definitely feel a bit rushed. We both had the Beef Tepanyaki which was very nice. Will definitely be back but it's for a casual bite - not a special occasion.

Hungry Mexican Restaurant @ Bodkins Bar
Bodkins Bar, 57 Bolton Street, City Centre North, Dublin

This place is fabulous and so unexpected. Bodkins is a lovely pub but quite unassuming from the front so when we walked through the bar to the Latin-themed extravaganza that is The Hungry Mexican restaurant we were really surprised. The food is fabulous - definitely the most varied Mexican menu I've seen in Dublin and I was delighted how flexible they were about adapting the menu for veggie and gluten free options. The service was brilliant - especially considering that we were competing with a very large Hen party for the attention of the staff. The atmosphere was great and the bill was so reasonable too. We had a delicious meal and really enjoyed our evening at the Hungry Mexican. We'll definitely be back.

The Purty Kitchen
4 Old Dun Leary Rd, Monkstown, Dublin

Did Sunday lunch here with my family a couple of weeks ago. This place is great. 5 of us had starters and main courses. We each had something different and all of us were happy. I had a lovely goats cheese and roast vegetable polenta tart which was fantastic. They also have a very impressive selection of craft beers and a good wine list. We'll be back :-)

Bloom Brasserie & Wine Bar
11 Upper Baggot Street, Dublin 4, City Centre South, Dublin

We've been to Bloom on a few occasions as it's just around the corner. We popped in yesterday fairly early in the evening and decided to go for the early evening menu - 2 courses and a glass of house wine for €25. The food was absolutely perfect, in particular my starter of celeriac and hazelnut soup. I'm thinking about going back in to beg for the recipe. The menu in Bloom is really good. Good vegetarian options and great choice for meat eaters too. Lots of game and fish. The service was excellent and the house wine was really great for the price. We had several glasses! There's a lovely relaxed atmosphere too.

Dobbins Restaurant
15 Stephen Lane, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Visited Dobbins for the first time last Friday night for a family meal. Somehow, I had never made it here before and I was quite excited as it has quite the reputation. I have to be honest, we were all quite disappointed. The place was almost empty. We ate from the a la Carte menu and the choices were pretty uninspiring. The food was nicely presented and tasted fine but it was just that - fine. This meal would have been perfectly adequate and we'd have left smiling if it'd been served to us it in a cheap and cheerful Temple bar eatery but it was expensive. Almost €300 for starters and mains for 4 with 2 bottles of wine. In current climes you really expect something special for that. Sorry Dobbins, it really wasn't worth it.

The Dining Room
35 Dawson Street, City Centre South, Dublin

Visited Balzac for a family dinner last Friday. Most of use ate from the Tabe d'Hote menu which is very good value and the food is good quality. The service was okay. To be fair to the staff, they seemed to be under a bit of pressure, but it did take quite a long time to get served initially. The food was fine. I had a butternut squash risotto which was very nice. There were no complaints from the rest of the party. That said, I found the dining room and atmosphere a little on the stuffy side and with the competition on offer in this area, probably won't be rushing back.

Michie Sushi (Ranelagh)
11 Chelmsford Lane, Dublin 6, Ranelagh, Dublin

Visited Michie Sushi with a friend last night. They have a wonderful selection of sushi in a nice casual ambience. The sushi was fresh and delicious and the house sake is really good quality. Service was faultless and the bill was more than reasonable. Looking forward to coming back soon.

YO Sushi Clarendon St
Brown Thomas, Clarendon St, Dublin , City Centre South, Dublin

Dropped in here yesterday on the way home from town with my boyfriend. We were delighted to discover their Blue Monday deal. All the dishes on the belt were €3. Great value for lovely sushi! We might have to make this a regular occasion

Cafe Topolis
37 Parliament Street, Temple Bar, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

We had a family lunch for 5 here on Sunday and availed of their amazing 2 courses and a glass of house wine deal for €13.95 per head. For the price, the food was great. They have much fancier dishes on the A la Carte menu as well for those who fancy it. Our waitress was very helpful and friendly. We all really enjoyed our meal and agreed that the service was truly top notch.

Crystal Boat Restaurant
Gallery Quay, Dublin 2, Grand Canal Dock, Dublin

My boyfriend and I ate here after walking past one day and liking the look of the menu. We were the only customers on a Friday evening. Our waitress was very polite but didn't really speak English and wasn't able to explain anything on the menu. She was joined by another waitress then who was much better. The food is okay - nothing special. Just your average Chinese food. Unfortunately as the evening went on, a lot of kids from the flats nearby started coming in and out getting takeaway and were then sitting directly outside the window drinking and making noise. The bill was pretty cheap though and they have a reasonable wine list.
