Reviewed 23rd December 2015 ( visited 20th December 2015 )

Dinner booked here for Sunday before Christmas and was delighted it wasn't a Christmas menu. The staff were very attentive and they food was delicious. Only thing against it is that I don't eat butter or potatoes and I found it hard to find something I could eat on the menu. It is very traditional food based with only one nod to exotic in thai fish cakes. However, what I did eat was an explosion of taste in my mouth and nearly had to be rolled out of Roly's I was so full. Expensive but you really are getting the experience and well oiled run establishment that Roly's is that make it worth it.

The Front Door (Dame Street)
15 Dame Street, Temple Bar, Dublin

Great staff, delicious food but it hasn't grabbed the minds of diners just yet as the place was empty. Had onion rings to start with chefs own recipe garlic sauce, then falafel salad, and lamb shank followed by apple pie and cheesecake. Good points, the starter and mains were fresh, hot, moorish and filling. I would go back for the rings alone. And they had a kicking sound track! Bad points, no early bird, even tho its reasonable priced its still a lot for a mid week 7pm meal. And the desserts just didn't match the standard the starter and main set. All in all I'd still come back here for the attentive staff and fabulous food.

Toscana City Centre
3 Cork Hill, Dame Street (opposite Dublin Castle), Dublin City Centre, Dublin 2, Temple Bar, Dublin

Have been a few times to this restaurant for lunch and dinner and never been dissapointed. But something to watch out for is their early bird offier - unlike most places that give you the choice of two courses or three courses for different prices Toscana only do a three course. It's still value for money as some of their a la carte dishes are the same price of €21. Aside from that the restaurant is compact but you don't feel like your on top of other diners. The food was delicious and hot when served. And the staff were friendly and courteous.

Fallon and Byrne
11-17 Exchequer Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

This place is not your regular lets just go for an early bird restaurant. It is really a date night, trying to impress without seeing to do so, restaurant. Turned up at 6, seated and greeted like we were regulars. Wine was poured for you (very impressive especially since the bottles start at €28). Staff were courteous, eagle eyed and treated us no different than if we were there for the a la cart on a Saturday. Food was fantastic but a little let down on the desserts. However, it was a mid week experience that felt like a weekend occasion

The Larder Restaurant
8 Parliament Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

We didn't make a booking and we were lucky to get a table as this seems a very popular restaurant even on a Wednesday. The early bird is extensive but...you realise there is a surcharge on everything except two dishes on the menu which I found misleading. Otherwise, the staff were freindly and prompt the food was delicious and the atmosphere cosy but buzzing.

Brasserie Sixty6
66/67 Great South Georges Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin

Got to have lunch here. Burger was devoured by my friend along with chips that are basically regtangle roast potatos. I had the lamb sandwich, if you can call a giant filled foccacia square a sandwich with tasty french fries. I've eaten here a good bit and will continue to as it's great value for money.

Ichiman Japanese & Thai Restaurant (Lower Liffey Street)
20 Lower Liffey Street, City Centre North, Dublin

Superb Sushi and tempting tempura, the food here is authentic and delicious. The staff don't mind you asking which is what dish if your not a frequent feaster of sushi and they are helpful to the utmost. I dare you to finish off a whole chicken katsu curry! It would be a feat as this might be as close to japan food wise as you can get but it's Irish in it's portion sizes. Will be back again and again and again!

Brasserie 7
The Capel Building, Capel Street, Dublin 1, City Centre North, Dublin

Dined out on a menupages deal of two starters, two mains and two glasses of wine. Staff were friendly and quick. Ordered crab cakes for starters, they were delicious and duck with bean and chorizo cassoulet. Had to dig to find the chorizo but the duck fell off the bone. Other diner had the pork belly said the fondant was done beautifully but felt the dish could have done with more bite. Overall I would go back as it was a great dine out on a dime!
