Can't fault this place! Been here a good few times now for the early bird, such good value and you get such delicious grub in a really chilled environment. Went with two friends and sat there for the whole evening and didn't feel anyone pushed by the staff to leave, service was great and felt really welcomed by the whole team working there! We got our free glass of wine by mentioning menupages so were happy out! All in all a great evening out, definitely the place to go for a tasty meal, preferably the early bird for value reasons, would have to recommend this restaurant to all!

Ate here today with my boyfriend, can't fault the place. Ate from the lunch menu, had the wings, the chicken ciabatta and the icecream selection. My boyfriend had the wings, the half chicken and the cheesecake. The food was just delicious, service was very efficient and even though we arrived just before they close after lunch did not feel rushed at all to leave. Wings were particularly good, would go back for them alone!! Great spot to grab a tasty, filling bite to eat, really nice quality food. Will definitely be back!

Jo'Burger
137 Rathmines Road, Dublin 6 , South Dublin, Rathmines, Dublin

Been here a good few times now and never fails to disappoint. Really quirky, love the menus! Always go for the chicken burger, homemade lemonade and share a chips (as they are very generous!). Been here on a date and with groups of friends, and great for both. Can't wait to go back soon!!

Novo
Harry Street, St Stephens Green, Dublin

Went here for the first time with my boyfriend for out Valentines's meal and had a wonderful evening. It happened to be very quiet when we were there, so service was excellent. We had three courses, each one as tasty as the next. Had the lamb for starter which was served in an artisan style and was bursting with flavour. We were also given a complimentary bread board with a delicious warm selection of breads. For mains we got the tuna steak and the cajun chicken. Both were presented beautifully and although portions weren't very large, they were very adequate and left us feeling very satisfied. For desserts we got the berries with ice-cream and the chocolate brownie - both were amazing! We had a lovely white wine to accompany our meal which went very well with our food. Overall we had a great dining experience and look forward to returning again soon!

Howard’s Restaurant
Cahir Rd Clonmel, The Park Hotel, Clonmel, Tipperary

We came here at about 9 o clock on Saturday, as there were no free table till this time. We were staying in the hotel, which had been lovely but we were sorely disappointed by our experience in the restaurant. Firstly the menus were very complicated, with no prices on them. We skipped starters and went straight to mains. We were sat in the corner, and it was very had to get service. We were left without water for half of the meal. The restaurant was badly laid out and very noisy. We ordered the steak and the roast duck. The steak was flavourless, dripping in grease and accompanied with a pile of extremely burnt potato gratin. The duck was thrown on the plate with soggy veg, dried out mash and a side order of cold turnip and carrots. Priced at 25 and 20 euro in a four star hotel, we were shocked by the quality of food delivered to us. We had desserts after, which were a slight improvement. Overall, we were very disappointed by the food and will not be returning.

Milano (Temple Bar)
19 East Essex Street, Dublin 2, City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin

Went here on a Sunday evening, didn't have reservation and was very busy but still managed to get a seat. However, it was in the corner by the door so was hard to relax as there was a constant breeze and meant people passing by were staring in on you. Anyway, got pizzas from the Romana range which were delicious, can not fault them, so beautifully made. Got the famous dough balls for desssert which were yum, however, a little too filling. Despite the unfortunate table position, overall, was a lovely dining experience. Second time in the particular Milano's and will be sure to return as you are always guaranteed to get a good quality pizza.

Pacinos
18 Suffolk Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Had a lovely evening here with a friend. Waiters are very attentive and helpful and really add to the very relaxed atmostphere. We were seated by the front window which had a nice view, however was very chilly so had to keep the jackets on. Food was delicious, had the Pacino's Pizza and my friend got the burger, we both very much enjoyed our meals! Got two desserts to share, however the two choices we wanted were not available. Went for the icecream and the creme brulee, fantastic icecream but creme brulee was nothing special. Lovely spot for good quality, homely food, will definitely be returning!

La Caverna Restaurant & Wine Bar
12 Fownes Street, Dublin 2, City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin

Went here on a Friday night with a friend for dinner for the first time and had a great evening. We ordered off the a la carte menu and everything was delicious. Shared starters and got chicken wings and the breads which were very nice. Got the lasagne for main which was very tasty and was a lovely portion size. Had the brownie for dessert which was heavenly! Was on the bottom floor which had a lovely atmosphere. Service was great and all the staff were very friendly. Sat for hours after dinner and didn't feel under pressure to leave it all. Shall definitely be going back and I'm already looking forward to my next visit!

Cornucopia
19/20 Wicklow Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Was heading out for a bite to eat and my friend was telling me about this place and how it was a must to try it so was my first time going there. AMAZING, loved everything about it. Got my dinner for 12.95 which at first I thought was pricey enough considering all the meal deals that are on around the place but the portion was so generous and the quality of the food was so high so that it was worth every cent. Went for a curry with two salads and was just an absolutely beautiful feed. Great atmosphere in the place, was jammers esp for a tue evening! Staff were all lovely and very helpful and stayed there chatting with my friend and there was no sense of being rushed. Would highly recommend this place, I'm not one bit vegeterian either so that makes no odds.... Can't wait to go back!!!
