Reviewed 14th May 2009 ( visited 01st May 2009 )

Met with friends, a very pleasant surprise, & the beer was good, I must say I disagree with reviews saying this place is too expensive, I thought it very reasonable for the quality of food & excellent service. I will use it as a local during the week, and they look after children very well, with all their favourites & half portion meals available. When you consider what's available locally & the prices, this is a lovely little place with delicious freshly cooked nicely presented Italian meals. We had Calamari, Chicken, Lamb, & fab desserts. Charming wait service. Three fussy ladies!!

We eat here regularly & always evjoy our evening. (Large family) Make sure you have an appetite the portions are large. Service can be slow, but remember food is fresh, & freshly cooked, so have patience! I would highly recommend the lebanese special at night, very fresh tasting, not spicy or weird, good lebanese home cooking. Full bar available for the drinkers and very child friendly. All day specials v good value. More atmosphere at weekend. To the guy who didnt want to give any stars, try it again with an open mind.

Wrights Anglers Rest
Strawberry Beds, West Dublin, Dublin 20, Chapelizod, Dublin

An improvement on our last visit, but still a way to go. Went to lunch, space a bit open & tables close together, nice open fire, new furniture. Food ok, pub grub, but not excessively priced, you wouldn't be running back licking your lips. Wait staff unprofessional & brusque or over familiar, asked about dinner menu no info given. I like this place as it has nostalgia for me, I await good management who can successfully run the dining end, so far all have been pretty dismal, & I have been coming here for about 30 years. Come on guys, put a bit of effort in, it will pay off.

La Banca Ristorante
Main Street, Lucan Village, Lucan, Dublin

Maybe ours was an off night, but our experience was not great. We had the E50 special, food was acceptable & but not worth any more than that, so nothing special about the price, the white wine was almost undrinkable, & desserts at an exhorbitant E6.50 a throw, turned it into a very expensive night, which was not worth it. Service is good.This is a local Italian, with aspirations of grandeur. It could always do better, previous experiences have been similar. Mediocre food, upmarket prices. It is a while since my last visit & I will not be rushing back. Poor value.

Da Vincis Restaurant (Leixlip)
Main Street, Leixlip, Kildare

I must say I agree with the earlier reviewer about value here, it could be better. We used to get takeaway pizza, & wondered why it seemed tasteless. The special offer is acceptable & good value, but for both quality & cooking, it is way overpriced on the normal menu. Pasta sauces are bland pizzas a bit disappointing. Come on Da Vinci's, put a bit of effort in, a few more specials, more fresh food. Celtic Tiger gone, you need something to put bums on chairs.

The Bradaun Restaurant @ Leixlip House Hotel
Leixlip, Leixlip, Kildare

Saw special offers on this site, well worth a visit, 2 courses & a pint for E20, really good deal, we had the steaks, will definitely be back for mid week treats, makes going out to eat affordable. Well done Leixlip House Hotel. The place was packed when we went & they will serve these offers in the dining room as well as the bar. Starters substantial, & tasty pints good, desserts looked tasty but we were too full.

The Brasserie @ Newlands Cross
Bewleys Hotel Newlands Cross, Clondalkin, Dublin

Went for a relaxed meal and chat with a friend, this place is perfect for that, tables are well laid out for privacy, service perfect, food was nicely cooked, very well presented, lovely staff. Very good value, at E26.00 for three courses fixed menu, there were sufficient choices on this, so it is good for a local area restaurant. I have heard that it is quiet mid week, and maybe when it is busier at the weekends it may have a good atmosphere, otherwise it would be a bit hushed for a major fun night out.

The County Club
Dunshaughlin, Dunshaughlin, Meath

Arrived lunchtime, but did not want carvery, chef very kindly took our order from the a la carte, starters very substantial, so be sure to have an appetite when you go. County Club has a good reputation for steaks, they were outstanding, perfectly cooked to order. Service impeccable, would highly recommend this pub/restaurant to people who like plain, good quality, nicely cooked and served food. We are making it our family local now, it has something to suit everyone, is very comfortable and will not break the bank. The carvery looks superior also, & cooked to order good solid 'like mammy used to make' you cant go wrong. Keep it up County Club.

Beckett's
Cooldrinagh House, Leixlip, Kildare

Ate here last night for the first time in years,very pleasantly surprised. All courses delicious, portions perfect, ambience could be better, but the dining areas are nice, just too open plan to create intimacy. Cooking was light as a feather, so although we did eat a lot, did not feel 'stuffed'. Prices were quite good, with one starter, two mains, two desserts,bottle house white, 2 beers coming to E133.00, not bad at all for this level of cuisine. I will return. Recommend Salad of Walnuts, bacon, pear, blue cheese, yummy, fish dishes perfect.

Kasturi Restaurant (Dublin)
Unit 3, Village Court, West Co. Dublin, Lucan, Dublin

Sad to say, I agree with Grey's review, a definite deterioration here. We eat here about once a month for last several years, the last 2 occassions the food has been awful, prawns old, overcooked, lamb of the cheap, stringy, stewed variety, unpleasant stringy dry chicken A pity, as it is not expensive to produce decent Indian food. It would appear to make sense to cut prices, maybe even cut the menu down to get people in, but to expect us to pay the same prices for this poor quality is professional suicide. Wait staff dont seem to care, again, guys where do your wages come from? I will not be returning to or recommending Kasturi. Unbelieveable & disappointing.
