Ive always been meaning to eat here and finally tried it tonight and wow, theyre never gona be able to get rid of me now! The food is really really good. I got food in the deli style part on the ground floor and then brought it down to the wine cellar to eat it, which you can do, handy tip! It took me 20 minutes just to decide what to order because everything looked so good. Ive heard the sandwiches are amazing. I ended up getting mashed potatoes and tandoori chicken, it was delicious. The bangers and mash that my friend got was great too. We got some yummy deserts afterwards and spent hours drinking really good wine. It’s a nice relaxed atmosphere. Friendly service and the food it top quality and gives a good choice. Definitely a place Ill go back to again and again.

Brunos
Eustace Street, Temple Bar, Dublin

I was lured in here by a tempting lunch offer of any starter and main for a reasonable price. However I was disappointed with the quality of the food and found the restaurant to be atmosphereless. The place was freezing. And its a pity because it looks appealing from the outside. The menue made the food sound great but it wasn’t. I wouldn’t eat there again.

Bewley's Café
Grafton Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Bewley’s Café is an esteemed Dublin landmark. It’s a joy sitting behind Harry Clarke’s beautiful stained glass and imagining how my grandmother sat in the exact same place drinking tea 70 odd years ago. It’s the perfect place to drop in for casual tea/coffee and scones and catch up with friends or else if you want nice food, you can eat there till late with a brilliant deal of a 3 course set menue for only €15. The salads are delicious, as are the pizzas and pasta. The food isnt mind blowing but its tasty and reliable! The service is friendly and the atmosphere is relaxing and casual. There are regular gigs on upstairs that are also worth checking out.

Govindas Restaurant (Abbey Street)
83 Middle Abbey Street, City Centre North, Dublin

I love Govindas. It’s a good place for quick, constantly great tasting food. It’s done deli style so you get your food straight away, no waiting. It’s a pure vegetarian restaurant but don’t let that put you off! The helpings are huge and the food is great! I got soup there the other day and it came with delicious home-made bread and was very reasonably priced for the size of the portion and the quality.

The Queens Bar & Steakroom
12 Castle Street, Dalkey, Dalkey, Dublin

I got a tuna melt here the other day and it was delicious. The service is very good. There’s a lovely relaxed and cosy atmosphere with fires lighting and hidden little nooks to sit in. It’s a nice place to lunch and you never know who you’ll meet. I saw Jonathan Rhys Meyers there before!

Zaytoon (Lower Camden Street)
44-55 Lower Camden Street, Dublin 2, Camden Street, Dublin

Zaytoon is a place I always seem to end up on a night out. It serves tasty Persian food till 4am. I usually get the chicken-shish-kebab which is yum and there’s some meal deal where you can get a drink and chips with it. If you just want garlic chips, its worth going there. My friend who’s obsessed with garlic sauce says it’s the best in Dublin! The staff are always very friendly and patient, I don’t know how, when they have to deal with rowdy crowds leaving the pubs and clubs!

Jimmy Chungs
Eden Quay, City Centre North, Dublin

This Chinese restaurant is famous for it’s all you can eat offer. It is always busy and there’s a good reason for this. There’s a great selection of food and it’s all very tasty. You pay €10.90 before 5pm for an all you can eat buffet divided into starters, mains and deserts. The waiting staff are friendly and you can buy beers and drinks for an extra charge. The highlight for me was getting to pull my own ice-cream for desert!

Botticelli Ice Cream
3 Temple Bar, Temple Bar, Dublin

I had hot chocolate here on a cold wintery night and it was lovely and quiet. Its a good place to people watch, as it looks onto the main Temple Bar street. The hot chocolate was a good warm-me-up and the staff were friendly. Ill have to try their ice-cream once its a little warmer out! A bad side is that a lot of drunken, rowdy people come in on their way to a bar and this can ruin the atmosphere a little!

Eddie Rockets (Wexford Street)
Wexford Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin

I ate here after a night out and its yum. I got a chocolate malt, cheesy chips and a cheese burger, all of which me and my friend shared between us. Its your typical fast food/burgers & chips done well. They sell cheap beer before 11 and you can always get seating so its nicer than eating in a chipper and then freezing outside eating!

Panem
Ha'penny Bridge House, 21 Lower Ormond Quay, City Centre North, Dublin

This place sells the most delicious pastries ever! Everything sold in the cafe is made there. They ship in special ingredients from Italy apparently. You can get savoury and sweet pastries. I got the calzone filled with cheese and spinach and its was lovely. The deserts looked sooo good but I didnt get to try any! Its a real pity that the place is so tiny. It just has stooled seating up against a wall table, that sits maybe tops 6people at a squeeze. Whenever I walk by intending to eat there, I end up leaving because I dont want to get a take-away and eat out in the cold! The service is a little brusque but the food makes up for it!

Metro Cafe
43 South William Street, South William Street, Dublin

I like this place because its nice and cosy but I have to admit, I was a little disappointed with my food after ordering. I had a ciabatta but found it a bit on the dry side and kinda overpriced for what it was. Its nothing too amazing. Sometimes it can be jam packed. Its nice if youre a smoker as you can sit outside, or in the summer its a good spot. If you feel like a snack its good too because you can just order a scone or scrambled eggs on toast.

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

I LOVE Cornucopia! I went in twice in the one week just for the soup. Its delicious. You can get a big or small bowl and then some yummy homemade bread with it for under a fiver. It can be really busy at certain times but theyve extended out now so its bigger than it used to be. Its all really healthy, wholesome food. The staff are always lovely and friendly and the atmosphere is very relaxed, with nice jazz music playing in the background. Its good value for the quality of food youre getting. Great place!

Itsa @ Dun Laoghaire (Bagel Store)
The Pavilion, Royal Marine Road, Dun Laoghaire, Dublin

I always go to Itsa Bagel in Dun Laoghaire, more out of habit and possibly due to the lack of better options but I always leave asking myself, why did I just go there again?! Its exactly what it says on the tin, its a bagel restaurant and you can get all different varieties of bagels with any topping imaginable. I, again out of habit, always order the Caesar bagel but I found it a bit dry the last time I went. Its very pricey for what it is and the space is usually very full meaning you have to wait for a table most of the time. Also you must pay extra to eat-in, which to me is a little scabby, considering youre all squashed in like sardines anyway and are encouraged to move on once finished eating. All in all, its nice, fresh food but its overly pricey. After eating there last sunday, I walked through People's Park and realised that the farmer's market was on, selling lots of yummy food, more in my price range and I regretted having bothered going to Itsa Bagel...

The Market Bar
Fade Street, City Centre South, Dublin

I absolutely LOVE the Market bar and its always a place I bring visitng friends because of its layed back atmosphere. If you want to go for casual drinks or share some tapas, this is a great place to go. Its a lovely space, a converted sausage factory with a warehouse feel, high ceilings and red brick walls. Theres no background music so its the perfect place to catch up with friends and chat. The food is Spanish tapas style, with two sizes Small plates €8, Large plates €12. Theres a good mix of seafood, salads, Nachos and Patatas Bravas, all of which are great and easily shared. I usually go and share a few plates with friends and it mostly ends up being around 10e each which is great value considering the amount of food we order! I mainly go here because of the relaxed ambience. When youre not in the mood for sitting through a formal 3 course meal in a conventional setting then try out the market bar for sure. Even just go for drinks and then order some nibbles if youre peckish! You cant book in advance and they stop serving at 9:30.

Bits and Pizzas
15 Patrick Street, Dun Laoghaire, Dun Laoghaire, Dublin

I have eaten here a few times, mostly with family, for which it is quite accomodating. There is a nice relaxed, cozy atmosphere. The food is cooked in the middle of the room so if you enjoy watching your pizza being made then youll like this place. Its mostly Italian pastas, pizzas and salads and the food is tasty, wholesome and the portions are just right. I thought that I got great value for money last week as there is currenlty a special offer running where you can get 2 courses for 15.90. So myself and my friend shared a starter, the delicious chessy, garlic mushrooms (perfect to share) and then got a caesar salad and pizza which we shared and then a desert, profiteroles and cream. It ended up being a lot of food and leaving both of us very full, all for just 30e. We had a bottle of wine also, they have a good selection. So all in all it was a good night. The service is a little slow but we were in no rush so there wasnt a problem and the waiting staff were friendly. The food isnt amazing, but it hits the spot!
