Kaya Thai Restaurant
28 O’Connell Street, Limerick City, Co Limerick, Limerick City, Limerick

Do not book through menu pages as they do not accept reservations through the site. When I rang to confirm booking they were very curt almost to the point of rudeness in denying a booking.

Galtee Inn
The Square, Cahir, Cahir, Tipperary

I went here with my parents and sister. I have to say the most impressive part of the meal was our waiter, he was great! He was friendly, amusing and really made our meal fun and enjoyable. The whiskey nook lit up my sister’s eyes and is impressed with the 80 + offerings! Wine is available by the bottle or glass and we had the Muddy Boots Shiraz, delicious! The menu is wide-ranging offering starters including goat’s cheese, soup, ribs and salad. Mains list speciality steak, fish, chicken and vegetarian options. My parents both had duck which came as a full half with stuffing and an orange sauce. They did ask for the sauce on the side but this didn’t happen. I opted for the House Special Chicken which was a black pudding stuffed breast wrapped in streaky bacon and smothered in melted cheese. As I am not a huge fan of pudding I found the 3 thick slices too much but my sister helped finish it! Also the amount of cheese on the dish was too much. I am a believer that butter and cream make everything taste better and often add cheese to this but it was almost like a block of it had landed on the meat and was stuck under the grill to melt. My sister had the Cajun spiced salmon and she went so far as to say it was the best salmon she had ever had! Again the portion was enormous! Sides included buttered green beans, peas and carrots with very tasty chips & baby potatoes. For dessert we had the chocolate brownie with ice-cream and cream. We opted to share one brownie, split in the kitchen. Each of us got almost a full portion of brownie, a scoop of ice-cream and cream and found it the most delicious butter oozing brownie either of us had had! Mother had the apple tart which was a bit of a letdown. All in all the whole meal was extremely satisfying and with a bill of €101.50 it was great value considering we had a doggie bag going home that had enough duck for lunch the following day! Service was great and we couldn’t compliment Mackie’s custom service enough!

La Rivista
22 Parliament Street, Kilkenny City, Kilkenny

Visited here for a birthday dinner with a group of eight girls. As visitors to Kilkenny we wanted a good dinner which would see us through the night without being over filling (gotta look good in your dress after eating you know!!). La Rivista didn't let us down. We had cocktails to ease us in which were very well priced as was the house wine which blow anyone away but was very drinkable. The food was very good too but not fussy or offering anything out of the ordinary. A selection of salads and antipasti served with fresh baked bread for starters was perfect in portion size and very tasty. The mains were very tasty too and again not stoodgy or too filling. That said nobody felt hungry after or was left wanting more. The chicken was very succulent and the sauce devine! Pasta and pizza dishes were gobbled up also! The food is great value for money, the staff were friendly but under pressure as the restaurant was packed and we did have to wait for a spell between courses. In all for a pre-night on the town meal we all agreed that this is a great spot, central to the city centre and serving food that is very good for its price target!

Spa Seafoods Deli and Cafe
The Spa, Tralee, Kerry

We ate in the newly opened restaurant upstairs from the deli and café. The atmosphere and decor were very pleasing with an amazing sea view from the almost panoramic windows. The waiting staff, while under pressure, were friendly and welcoming and happy to answer any questions. The menu selection reads well with the usually fishey fare of chowder, crab, squid and prawns to start. The main courses included catch of the day, scampi, a monk fish Thai red curry and seafood risotto. There are non-fish items available also but as all four in our party like fish we all stuck to these options. Two of us had the poached paupiettes of white fish. This dish disappointed beyond belief. It came in a soup dish with a bland unflavoured water that the fish had been paoched in with some green veg and too many peppercorns floating around. A few soggy potatoes completed the the dish. The monkfish curry proved very pleasing however as did the Spa Seafood platter. Sides of chips also came and were very tasty as was the fresh baked bread. Desserts fell down, not so much on taste but on portion size. The cheesecake and bonoffi pie was served as a finger width sliver with one scoop of ice cream. Needless to say this was a total dissapointment following the poor main! The toffee pavlova was more generous in size but didn't blow us away. The food was way over priced for what we received and fell down on taste. I don't think we will be returning which is a pity as the owners have put a lot of work into the new restaurant, perhaps more emphasis on the food rather than the surrounds.

Chameleon Restaurant
1 Lower Fownes Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin

You gotta eat here! A kind of an offbeat vibe going on that's a change from the ordinary. The friendly staff invited us to some lovely bellinis to start and the food which followed didn't disappoint, it's simply yummy! We had a selection from the Rijst-tafel menus including the delicious crispy squid, the mouth watering two-day marinated pork, beef rendang and the perkedel. Everything was scrumptious in its delectability but as a table of four we had to share some of the food that came out in individual portions. There is a good selection of wines and beer which were reasonably priced and the atmosphere in the bar area downstairs has a vibrant fee and you're not rushed to move on! All in all a a great spot to eat.
