The Baggot Inn
143 Lower Baggott Street, Baggot Street, St Stephens Green, Dublin

Came here for a work lunch with 2 others. I had the baked potatoe with tuna. Thought it was a bit strange I was asked if I wanted chips with my baked potatoe but that might just be me being pickey. The food here is ok. I do however lover the pub for going to a social drink. Great spot and great friendly staff.

Pearl Brasserie
20 Merrion Street Upper, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Amazing restaurant. We went here a couple of weeks for the first time on a double date. On arrival we had cocktails and we where then seated beside a huge fish tank which I though was beautiful. I had the prawns to start which were fab and for my main course I had the chef's special which was veal and prawns. I have to say the veal was out of the world 'taste explosion'. Since my visit I have been for lunch with collegues and the lunch deal is brilliant. I have also recommended the restaurant to everyone. Amazing

Washerwomans Hill
60 Glasnevin Hill, Glasnevin, Glasnevin, Dublin

I had the risotto balls. They were interesting as I have never seen risotto done that way before. My partner had the prawns and I have to say they weren’t great, kind of bland and over done. For my main I had the chicken which was nice and the mash was very nice. A lot of my friends love the restaurant so I am sure I will go back. I just don’t think it’s the place for me.

The Ivy House
114 Upper Drumcondra Road, Drumcondra, Dublin

I have been to the ivy house a few time but only for drinks but last night we decided to grab a bit to eat. I got the Brie which I thought was lovely but I felt they but way too much berry mix on the plate which is kind of a waste. Thats not a complaint just an observation. I like that the Brie was in a filo pastry as I havent seen it done that way before. My Partner got the pasta which was very taste. Nice handy spot.

Saba
26-28 Clarendon Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Went her on monday with my partner and another couple. I wasnt too hungry when I arrived so decided just to have a starter and then a starter for my main course. I had the duck pancake which were gorgeous and the sauce that it came with was yum. I then had the saute chicken which is something I wouldnt usually get but it was very tasty. The pinio grigio was delicious and we all had cocktails which were also quite nice maybe a lil more alcohol in the mojito but nice all the same. The party i was with all loved the meal. :)

Boulevard Cafe

I got the goats cheese starter which was gorgeous. For my main course I had the prawn pasta which I found bland and the pasta more like noodles. Great value menu. The staff were nice but were chatting to each other very loudly I could barely here the person i was with. We were the only ones in the restaurant and the staff were singing loudly to the music. I just felt this was a little poor.

Pichet
14/15 Trinity Street, Dublin , City Centre South, Dublin

I went here with my partner as we had seen it on tv3 and we are both very interested in food and restaurants. We just walked and didnt have a reservation but they had a table free and were very pleasant. It did take a little long for our order to be taken and the food to arrive. I the rissotto there is well worth the wait though. Out of this world. It was like a tast explosion. I had the fish for my main and it was amazing and the potatoes were so different with herbs and spice. Gorgeous.

The Cheese Pantry
104 Drumcondra Road Upper, North Dublin, Drumcondra, Dublin

This was our third visit to the restaurant and all times before had been great but this day was not. I got the vegetarian pasta and it had no flavor. That staff were helpful in the way that could advise us on the best wines to have with our food. We were enjoying a bottle of wine after our meal and they turned the lights up and placed a bill on our table without us asking for it. We would have had no problem in leaving but we weren't told directly that they were closing. We felt the service here was very poor due to this.
