Myself and a number of friends had dinner at the Whitefriar on Saturday night. It was our first visit and we really enjoyed it - the restaurant was full and the atmosphere laid back, and best of all the food hit the spot. The menu has some really nice options and the portion sizes were generous. I had the tandoori chicken which was lovely. One of our group is vegetarian and had the cannelloni - they were really happy that it was different to the regular pasta option offered veggies in many other restaurants. Another had the monkfish, which btw way looked really good. All-in-all it was a great night out.

Myself and my boyfriend visited Vagya last week with a voucher for a three course meal. The service was very good and the staff were very attentive. Above all we were really impressed with the food. I had the Jumbo Tandoori Prawns to start and they were fantastic - the best I've had in a long time. For mains I had the Chicken Gorkhali Curry and also really enjoyed it. My boyfriend ordered a number of vegetarian dishes and was very happy. The only downside is that there is a serious lack of atmosphere - there was only one other couple in the restaurant on a Thursday night. Even so I think we will be back.

Morrison Grill
The Morrison, Ormond Quay Lower, Dublin 1, City Centre North, Dublin

Myself and my husband ate here on Saturday evening with a voucher that entitled us to a €40 bottle of wine and three courses for two. The voucher was €80 and so pretty good value. All-in-all we had a nice meal and the service was good. The atmosphere however did suffer as the restaurant is part of an open plan area that includes the bar and an entrance to the hotel. The food was nice - I had the scotch egg to start and chicken as main. My only issue is that I opted for the garlic butter sauce with the chicken but rather than getting a sauce I was given a saucer of fridge-cold butter. My husband had the vegetarian options for starter and main and was happy with both (cheese crottin and escalope). We were not especially happy with the desserts though - I had creme brulee which was fine but cold but my husband came out worse with the bread-and-butter pudding - it did not resemble anything close to b&b pudding and was instead two slices of fruit bread toasted and covered in custard. I'm not sure I would return but as a hotel restaurant it is really not that bad.

Honest To Goodness
25 Market Arcade, Georges Street, City Centre South, Dublin

I have been going to Honest to Goodness since it opened a number of years ago and I absolutely love the food. I had lunch in their new premises near Odessa yesterday and if possible it has got even better - the same great food but it's so much more comfortable. I have tried most of the menu and am a big fan of their chicken pesto but I tried their meatball sandwich with pepper sauce and it was lovely. There are so few places that always get it right but I can safely say that they always do. I would recommend Honest to anyone without hesitation.

The Exchequer
3-5 Exchequer Street, City Centre South, Dublin

I've eaten here twice recently - once on a Tuesday and again on a Friday evening. On both occasions the staff were very attentive and helpful. The menu is also well thought out with lots of options. I think it's a great option for a night out with friends especially over the weekend - although booking is probably essential as it gets jam-packed. During the week though it has a really nice chilled out atmosphere.
