I love this place, On a sunny afternoon the little courtyard that holds the Cake Café offers a realxing retreat from the bustle of Camden Street which is a mere 500 feet away. Everytime we visit we seems to be drawn to the Gratin and the Butternut Squash hot pot with Chorizo, words cannot describe how yummy these two dishes are. The tea that they stock is from Kingfisher teas, which I am a huge fan of!!!! If every in the Camden Street area, do stop by. You can enter through Daintree Paper or there is a back entrance through the alley way at the back of the Daintree Building

Bagots Hutton
6 Upper Ormond Quay, City Centre South, Dublin

Attempted to join a Birthday do last night with 5 other friends at the Bagots Hutton and was approached by an extremely rude individual, who i hope was not the owner. Who abruptly said no, no, we are full- no more capacity. We explained we were meeting friends for a birthday- rudely cut us off while speaking and moved us towards the door...he would not even let us find our friends to let them know that we could not join them. Here's a little sound advice; you are a fairly new establishment located in a basement, in a city suffering a recession...that horrific lack of customer service and basic manners is not the approach your business should embrace. Well done Bagots Hutton that is exactly the business savvy that all new businesses who want to fail should adopt! BRAVO. So word of advice if ever in Dublin avoid the Bagots Hutton. There are many other establishments that would welcome your patronage. So disappointing- Celtic Tiger pretentiousness is passe!

Tamara Restaurant
Unit 11/18 Belgard Square, Tallaght Town Centre, West Dublin, Tallaght, Dublin

the shrimp in coconut curry served in a coconut shell is to die for and the Tom Kai Gai soup is just perfect! If you lile sea bass- the steam sea bass with lemon grass is a must.

YO Sushi (Dundrum)
Level 1, Unit 26A, Dundrum Town Centre, Dublin 14, Dundrum, Dublin

the sushi in this place is absolutely disgusting. I have given this several tries to make the sushi palatable, but I have realized that it is just awful. For those people who have no clue on what good sushi is go here.

The Port House
64a South William Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

The atmosphere of this restaurant is superb for a romantic evening and the food is great. I have to say I am torn between the Port House and Bar Pintxo, their other restaurant in Temple Bar. Overall the service is good, when not busy,when busy the service falters a little.

Sika Restaurant
Powerscourt Hotel Restaurant & Spa, Powerscourt, Wicklow

I had dinner at the restaurant on Saturday and I was quite surprised at the lay out of the restaurant. The air about it was somewhat pretentious, but I guess that would be expected once you had a glance at the prices on the cocktails menu. Upon arriving I ordered a Bombay Sapphire and Tonic which was a ridiculous €15.00. While sitting in the bar area we were served a miniscule little soup concoction that I could have done without. We were then taken to our table where I was handed a menu, which displayed starters on the left and mains on the right. The starters were in the median price range of €22-€25 and the mains in the high €40 price range. There was an option to do the prestige menu which was a taster menu for €100.00 pp. Two of the couples at our table wanted to do the prestige menu, but my fiancé and I were not interested. The first and only main issue that we encountered was during the ordering stage. It is not mentioned to you that the prestige menu must be served per table. The only person at our table to have a menu specifying this was me. I had a word with the lovely girl serving us and she improvised and allowed me a fish option for my main instead of the meat option originally laid out for the prestige menu. The prestige menu allotted you three starters, small but reasonable as you were getting three with the option. The main I ordered was the Turbot, Ramsay’s signature we were told. The turbot was tasty, but no one told me that the main was going to be the same size as one of my starter samples. It was a disgrace my main was about the same size as the lobster ravioli that I received earlier. Dessert was superb example of a creamy vanilla panna cotta! Overall the bill came to €650.00 for 4 including a few bottles of wine. I have to say the food tasty, the prices ridiculous, the staff…….were very French, but pleasant. In the end, I can say I came, I eat, but I sure will not be coming back any time soon. Gordon where’s the rest of my turbot??? Or did I miss the word petit in front.
