We just cant keep away from Brasserie 66! Visited for lunch yesterday. The place was very quiet but the staff were super friendly as always and we were given fantastic service. Both my partner and myself had the Rotisserie Baguettes. I had the duck and he had the beef. Both were absolutely gorgeous and gigantic portions! I had to get half of mine in a doggy bag! Cant recommend this place enough! :)

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

We visited Ichiman on Tuesday evening for a bite to eat before the cinema. We had the 22 piece sushi platter, which was just gorgeous. Some of the best sushi i have tasted in Dublin. We also had 2 Asian beers which were the perfect compliment to our dish! The staff were very friendly and helpful, and although the restaurant was quiet, it was still a really nice atmosphere. I will definitely return to Ichiman to try out the rest of their sushi menu!

Bel Cibo Smithfield
Unit 11 Block A, Smithfield Market Square, Dublin 7, Smithfield, Dublin

We visited Bel Cibo before a late movie showing in the LightHouse Cinema next door. We were running a bit late for our original booking of 8, but a quick call to the restaurant and I was advised that it was no problem at all, that our table was still reserved. We were seated as soon as we arrived and our order was taken promptly by a very friendly waitress. I had the soup of the day and the Pacherri Del Pastore, which was absolutely delicious. I actually couldn't finish it, but the waiter packed what I had left into a doggy bag, no problem. My boyfriend had the Cristini Misti, and the Calzone for his main. Both of these dishes were huge and extremely tasty! I had the apple tart for my dessert and my boyfriend the Death by Chocolate, which was utterly decadent! The waiting staff made sure we were happy with everything, and were very friendly and courteous. I will definitely return to Bel Cibo in the future. I've already recommended it to several people, and am really looking forward to our next visit!

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

Had afternoon tea here on a Saturday afternoon and was very impressed. We were seated immediately at a window seat and our order taken promptly. Were were served a selection of sandwiches and cakes, which were just lovely. We had tea in some wonderful quirky teapots. The manager approached us about half way through to make sure everything was to our liking, and we were offered more sandwiches if we wished, which I have never seen before at afternoon tea. Really lovely, i would definitely return.

Vermilion
94-96 Terenure Road, Dublin 6 , Terenure, Dublin

I have been to the Vermillion many times before and have always enjoyed the food. The service on this particular night however was dreadful. The place was very busy, which is to be expected for a Saturday night, but I got the impression there wasn't enough staff to cover the floor. We had to wait almost half an hour between our starter and main course, we were left sitting for a further half an hour after our main course without being approached to ask if we wanted dessert, I had to ask twice for the water to be refilled and twice for the bill at the end of the meal. The food was beautiful, but our experience was marred by the bad service. I will return, but perhaps on a quiet evening during the week.

Gallahers Bistro
16A D'Olier Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

We were seated as soon as we entered the door, but in a rather awkward table in the corner of the balcony. Our waiter was friendly and took our orders promptly. I had the steak sandwich, was was lovely, but not really a sandwich, Quite a small portion for the price. The caramelized onions were almost non-existent! I wouldn't rush to revisit again.

Taste of Everest
17a Lower Baggot St, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Went for an early dinner here before the theater. We had a voucher for 3 courses which were all very tasty. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and the manager was very helpful, advising that certain things we ordered from the menu were quite spicy etc. I had the Chicken Lollipop to start, which were beautifully seasoned chicken wings cooked perfectly. I then had the traditional Indian curry and shared a rice and naan with my boyfriend. We had tea and coffee with our choice of ice cream for dessert. Overall i really enjoyed the restaurant, it was quite quiet when we entered but filled up as the evening went on. I will definitely return in the future.

The Boxty House
20-21 Temple Bar, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Visited here on a Sunday evening and were seated immediately by a very friendly waiter. We went with the value menu, i had the chicken liver and the chicken and bacon boxty. Both were delicious. My main course was very rich, so i couldn't finish the entire pancake, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. My boyfriend had the chowder and the mushroom, blue cheese and boxty dumplings, both of which he said were delicious. When the waiter came to check how the food was my boyfriend asked if his main was supposed to come with bread, the waiter advised it wasn't but that he could get him some no problem. He arrived back with a plate of lovely beer bread which we weren't even charged for. For dessert i had the Baileys cheesecake, i was expecting the usual tiny portion but was given a huge square of cheesecake which was mouth watering! My boyfriend had the bread and butter pudding which was also delicious. All in all a great night, lovely staff, will definitely return.

Ambala
11 Upper Camden Street, Dublin 2, Camden Street, Dublin

Visited here on a Sunday afternoon with a voucher and have to say i was more than pleasantly surprised. The place itself is more of a cafe than a restaurant but the seating area down the back is cosy and well laid out. The staff were some of the nicest i have ever come across, very polite and chatty. They couldn't have done more for us, even offering us extra rice on the house if we wanted it. I had the lamb samosa which was mouth watering, the meat was fresh and had a lovely kick to it. For my main i had Makhani with lamb, it was one of the nicest dishes i have ever had at an Indian. I was still full from it later that night! My boyfriend had the aloo tiki for starters and the chicken bhuna, both of which he raved about! We had rice and a garlic naan which was just gorgeous. There was a sharing desert included in our deal, our waiter kindly offered to show my boyfriend the deserts and explain what each one was. In the end we had pistachio fudge (which was warm!? Such a nice surprise!) and halwa with cups of tea. Overall it was one of the best dining experiences Ive had in Dublin, i will definitely be returning!

Taste of Brazil, Cozinha Brasileira
32 Parliament St, Dublin 2, City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin

Visited on a Sunday with a Groupon voucher. The place was buzzing but we were seated immediately. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was beautiful. I had the COXINHA to start, which were a little cold but still tasty and the ESTROGONOFE DE CARNE for my main which came with chips and rice. It was so tasty, really creamy and filling. My boyfriend had the RISOLES DE PRESUNTO E QUEIJO for starters and the FEIJOADA NOBRE for main, both of which he was very happy with. We shared a truffle covered in chocolate sprinkles for dessert. I'm so glad we did as the truffle was very heavy and sticky but sooo tasty! We will definitely be returning in the future, cant wait to taste the rest of the menu!

Umi Falafel - Dame St
13 Dame Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Stopped off here for dinner before a gig in the Olympia. We were seated immediately, staff were very friendly. We ordered 2 falafels wraps, the lentil soup and some wedges. I ordered the falafel ‘your way’; I was a bit disappointed as a lot of the salads I could choose from were not available. Still, the pitta I got was gorgeous, the falafel was so fresh and the chilli sauce was lovely and spicy. Lentil soup was also gorgeous, served with a toasted pitta bread. I had a voucher from menupages so the price was very reasonable. Even without the voucher, I would have been very happy to pay the overall price. I will definitely be returning here.

Tolteca Mexican Style Grill
38 Upper Baggot Street, Dublin 4, Baggot Street, Dublin

I visited the restaurant on Suffolk Street, which was very busy when we arrived, i think it was happy hour. We ordered quickly from the counter by some very rude staff. Impatient, mumbling and carrying on their own conversations as they served us. We managed to find a clean table among the packed restaurant filled with dirty tables. I had the pork burrito with the fire roasted corn salsa. It was the most bland and dry burrito i have ever had. Very disappointing. I visited the bathroom while here, it was very unsanitary and absolutely stank of urine. I definitely wont ever be returning here.

Beeftro - Dundrum
Pembroke District, Dundrum Town Centre , South Dublin, Dundrum, Dublin

Visited here for a work dinner. The restaurant was very quiet when we arrived at about 5.30pm. It filled up while we were there though so it had a good atmosphere after a while. I had the La Tagliata with Mushrooms, fried potatoes, garlic and chimichurri dressing. I had this with the bacon and crispy onion potato and the pepper sauce. It was absolutely gorgeous. Steak was cooked perfectly and such a delicious range of flavors with the dressing. The bacon and onion potato puree was just divine and while the pepper sauce was a little on the watery side, it was still very tasty. My steak was served in a dish which was a little unusual but nice for a change. I had the hot chocolate fondant with banana ice cream. It was beautiful but a little too bitter for me. I would have liked to know it was dark chocolate before i ordered. The staff were very friendly and the decor was lovely, very vintage looking. Overall a very nice meal, i will definitely be returning.

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

We visited here as a Birthday treat for my other half, and have to say it was one of the most enjoyable dining experiences I’ve ever had. We were seated immediately in a cosy little corner surrounded by candles, exposed brick walls and various wine bottles on shelves. I felt like we were sitting in our own little Spanish cave! Our order was taken promptly and the food arrived dish by dish as it was ready. If I was to go into detail about every single plate we ordered, I'm afraid I'd expose us as quite the over indulgent pair! ("Of course we can have an 8th plate, sure it’s your birthday!" :O ) I will however, highly recommend the Gambas Rebozadas (probably the nicest prawns I’ve ever had), the Patatas with the Mojo and anything that involves chorizo! After all that delicious food, I still managed to suggest that "Surely no Birthday would be complete without cake!?" We ordered the Churros con Chocolate and the Selva Negra. The latter of which was so delicious, I promptly slipped into a food coma upon completion! I can’t of course forget the staff, who were all very friendly and attentive. Needless to say, I will definitely be returning to The Port House, although this time, with a stretchier waist band!! :)

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

Not impressed with our visit here at all. The waiter took our food order without asking if we wanted drinks. We were left for 15 minutes before he came back over realizing his mistake. Our starters came out promptly but we were left waiting about 40 minutes for our main course to arrive. When the waitress finally approached our table with food, she brought the wrong dishes. We eventually got our mains without even an apology for the delay. Food was fine, I had the suppli and canelloni which had hardly any meat inside. My other half had the pate and the seafood linguine which contained shells more than anything else. Ive definitely had better Italian around the city so unfortunately, we wont be returning.

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

After visiting Brasserie 66 for lunch i was determined to return and have dinner. We had a voucher for 1 free main course but had the works. I had calamari and the pork and my boyfriend had the chicken wings and the surf and turf. It was the best meal I've had in Dublin and cannot recommend it enough. We both had the pecan tart for dessert and a coffee. When we were leaving, every member of staff we passed said goodbye and thanks which was really lovely, nice to know you're being acknowledged as a customer. I will definitely return soon myself and have already made plans to host a work event here!

Carluccio's Caffe
52 Dawson Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin

Visited Carluccio's on a Tuesday evening just for a coffee and some cake. We were seated immediately even though the place was super busy. Our waiter was so friendly and attentive. I had the chocolate bread and butter pudding and my partner had the chocolate pudding. Both were absolutely gorgeous, and the coffee was excellent quality too. I will return to Carluccio's in the future for sure, really want to try out their early bird menu, its great value!

Carluccio's Caffe
52 Dawson Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin

My first visit to Carluccio's and I wasn't disappointed! The place was very crowded but we visited at lunchtime so obviously its going to be busy. Saying that we were seated straight away, no waiting. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful and our food arrived promptly. We had the bread tin to start which was just gorgeous. The focaccia in particular was really tasty. I had the mushroom and pancetta soup to start which again, was beautiful. My boyfriend had the brushetta which was so fresh and a huge portion. We ordered the Trio Di Pasta for our main and had Penne Alla Luganica, Fettucce Con Polpette and Tortelloni Doi Cervo. They were all amazing, id recommend the Fettucce Con Polpette in particular. I couldn't believe how big the portion sizes were. We were so stuffed we couldn't finish and had to get a doggy bag! The price was more than reasonable and i cant wait to return again!

The Counter Suffolk Street
20 Suffolk Street, City Centre South, Dublin

A much nicer restaurant than their branch in Dundrum. Staff are very friendly and service was very quick. The food was delicious, a bit expensive for what it is but we knew this before coming in so it was a bit of a treat. Id definitely return to this branch in the future. PS: The chicken wings are to die for!!

Munchies Beacon
Beacon South Quarter, Sandyford, Dublin

Visited here for lunch with my mum one afternoon. the place was packed as it was lunchtime on a Wednesday so lots of people in the local businesses getting lunch. We managed to get a table just by chance so i would recommend going before or after 1-2pm as that's when everyone seems to visit. I got the Santa's Delight which was so tasty any my mum got the Chicken Whoopie which she said was also gorgeous. We added an extra cup of soup to our sandwiches which was €2 extra each. I thought the cup of soup was very small but it was tasty. Staff were friendly but very busy so there wasn't much interaction.

Gotham Cafe
8 South Anne Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Absolutely love Gotham. The food is always super tasty and the staff are very friendly. I love the decor inside the restaurant too, very funky! This particular time myself and my boyfriend had the Italian Charcuterie Plate between us to start. Absolutely delicious, the presentation was beautiful and everything on the platter was so tasty. I then had the Sausages And Mash which again, was delicious. There portion was quite big and a i was absolutely stuffed after but it was so worth it! The quality of the sausages was wonderful and the honey and thyme jus was perfect. Cant wait to return again!

Burritos & Blues
2 Wexford Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin

Love coming here for a burrito! they do a great meal deal, burrito, sweet potato fries and a drink for €10. They have great student deals as well. Staff are always very friendly and smiley. I have been to the different restaurants around town, mostly the one on Anne Street where the staff are always so nice!

Burritos & Orange
Upper Abbey Street, City Centre North, Dublin

I have definitely had better burritos around Dublin. They were ok, but lacked any sort of real flavor. The nachos and homemade guacamole were really tasty, but i definitely wouldn't come back here for a burrito. Very disappointing.

Bobo's Gourmet Burgers (Dame St)
50-51 Dame St, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Popped in here after a gig one night for a quick bite to eat. Got the 2 burgers and 2 fries for €20 deal. The burgers were really big and tasted delicious, Id recommend the The Colm! The fries were a little salty but still very tasty. I would definitely revisit Bobo's in the future.

Mother India Roscommon
The Square, Roscommon Town, Roscommon

Restaurant was very quiet for a Saturday night but the take away seemed to be doing good business. We had the meat mixed platter to start which i would recommend and the Tandoori King Prawn Masala, which was just beautiful and Mother India Punjabi Mix which was also very tasty. We had boiled rice and a Garlic and Coriander Naan with was cooked to perfection. The only drawback was that apparently you cant drink the tap water is the restaurant (!?) so we had to buy bottled as we were driving, but apart from that a very enjoyable meal.

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

Was here for lunch at around 2.30pm on a Thursday. It was quite quiet with only a few people at tables but still, it was a nice atmosphere. We had a menupages voucher and ordered from the 'Quick Lunch' menu. There were great choices, my only complaint was that they had run out of bread for the Rotisserie foccaccias, so I had the toasted ham and smokey cheese sourdough sandwich instead. It was really lovely and came with a side salad and 5 or 6 big chunky fries. My boyfriend had the Sixty6 half Irish Breakfast which looked like a full one when it came out as it was so big! Everything tasted fresh and our waitress was very friendly and helpful. I will definitely be returning in the future.

Pablo Picante - Clarendon Market
4 Clarendon Market, Between Clarendon Row & South William Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Have been here a few times for cheap dinner. Food is always amazing. I reccomend the Mexicali Mince. I usually get the Smokie level of heat. Just enough spice but not so much that you cant taste anything. Boyfriend got the Super Picante and was almost in tears afterwards! Not for the faint hearted!! ;)

The Bull & Castle and F.X. Buckley Steakhouse
5-7 Lord Edward Street, Christchurch, Dublin 8, City Centre South, Dublin

Visited here for the early bird menu. Had the chicken wings to start and the 32 Day 8oz Dry-Aged Rump steak which was cooked to perfection. I had the mashed potatoes and we had a side order of cajun onions which were to die for. We had the beer platter afterwards which was nice but a lot of the beers tasted the same! Our waiter was very polite and attentive and was great at informing us of what each beer was on the platter. We went up to the beerhall afterwards for cocktails which were amazing. I would definitely return to this restaurant.

Jo'Burger
137 Rathmines Road, Dublin 6 , South Dublin, Rathmines, Dublin

Visited here on a Sunday evening with my boyfriend. Wasn't too packed so we managed to get a bench to ourselves. We weren't sure on arriving whether we had to wait to be seated or just take one ourselves, so as there were no staff around we decided to take one ourselves. We sat there for about 10 minutes without being approached until finally the waitress came over and asked if we'd been served yet. When we told her no she replied, "Yeah your usually ignored when you take a seat yourself" Very helpful. The same waitress took our order without so much as a smile. The food arrived promptly but our order of fries was wrong. When we called her to let her know this she snapped "yeah the rest of your order is coming" She could have at least waited to see what the problem was instead of assuming. Our burgers were delicious but the onion rings were quite greasy and the bush fries were overdone with more 'crispy bits' than actual chips. I asked the waiter for another jug of water halfway through our meal. He grunted a reply and then returned and practically threw the jug on the table. We went to the till to pay and were served by the same waitress as earlier, leaning over the counter from the inside attempting to use the till the wrong way around. Not a huge deal, but doesn’t exactly scream customer service when staff won’t even come around the counter to serve you. Another girl took over who i think was the manager, she asked how everything was. We advised the food was lovely but the staff could have been a bit friendlier. She didn’t really seem bothered by our comments and told us that the waitress in question can "be a vacant at times" Not sure if I’d have staff that I knew were a bit 'vacant' towards customers. Anyway, over all the food was nice, a bit pricey for what it was but I won’t be returning anyway as the lack of service really put me off.

Jamie's Italian
Pembroke District, Dundrum Shopping Centre, Dublin 14 , Dundrum, Dublin

Unfortunately I was very disappointed with my visit to Jamie’s. We arrived about 5.30pm and were seated immediately which was great. For starters I had the grilled mushroom brushetta. I found this dish very bland and not at all tasty. We also had a garden salad, which was fine and baked chestnut mushrooms. The chestnut mushrooms were awfully presented in a dish that looked like it had been used for the previous dinner as the 'crispy bread' was stuck onto the sides like leftovers and the middle was soggy and inedible. After our plates were finally taken away, we had to wait a half hour for the mains to arrive. I had the wild truffle risotto which was also, very disappointing. It was far too salty and the consistency very runny. After a few forkfuls I gave up as I just couldn’t stomach it. Other mains at our table were the Irish Lamb Breast which was nice but a tiny portion accompanied by nothing but some garnish. We also had the Fish in the Bag. The fish was beautiful itself but the cracked wheat and seafood bed was overpowered by fennel and salt and the presentation left something to be desired. We also had the 'Posh Chips' which were probably the most awful thing I have ever been given in a restaurant. Overcooked crispy ‘chips’, which contained no potato and were absolutely dripping in grease. We were informed when ordering desert, that over half of the items on the menu were unavailable, so we ordered 2 ice creams and a cheesecake. The ice cream was lovely but the cheesecake was dried out and not at all appetizing. The staff seemed to be very scatty, forgetting several of our drinks orders. They were also not well prepared to deal with menu questions or availability of certain dishes. A lot of the food from our table was sent back and not one staff member thought to ask if there was a problem with the food or if we had enjoyed any of our dishes. I so wanted to enjoy my meal and Jamie’s but unfortunately poor food and bad service will stop me from returning again.

Delhi Lounge Indian Restaurant
15 Main Street, Rathfarnham Village, South Dublin, Rathfarnham, Dublin

Had a lovely meal here on Sunday evening. Arrived at around 8.30 and the restaurant had a couple of people in it. We were seated quickly and provided with menu’s and a huge basket of popadoms! I ordered the potato cakes to start and initially ordered a chicken dish which I can’t think of the name of, the waitress advised me that this dish was very hot (there was no mention of this on the menu) so not being able to handle anything too spicy, I changed to the chicken choley. The waitress was a great help as I’m not a fan of overly spicy food so I appreciated her mentioning it to me. The choley was beautiful with huge pieces of chicken and plenty of chickpeas. The service was friendly and the atmosphere relaxed, we thoroughly enjoyed our meal and will definitely be returning.

The Silver Oak Indian Restaurant
Austin Friar Street, Mullingar, Co. Westmeath, Mullingar, Westmeath

Visited here about 7pm on a Saturday. The restaurant was quite quiet but as our meal went on it started to fill up. Food was amazing, i recommend the Malwani Prawn Curry, absolutely beautiful and plenty of prawns. We ordered a garlic naan also which was one of the best I've tasted. Great value for 2 starters, 2 mains, rice and the naan, about €48. Will definately take a trip back if i am back in Mullingar, service was excellent, one of the nicest Indians I've been to.

Wagamama - Stephen's Green
St Stephen's Green Centre, South King St, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Great little spot for dinner. The interior is cool, the staff are very friendly and the food is to die for. Ordered the duck gyoza, the tori kara age, katsu curry and chicken chilli ramen. All came out quite close together and piping hot. Thoroughly enjoyed my ramen and my boyfriend loved his curry. Our waiter was also really nice and had a chat with us while he was taking our card to pay, he told us "enjoy the rest of the weekend" and waved us off, lovely guy. I'll definately be returning to this Wagamama!

Radhuni Indian Restaurant
8a The Crescent, Monkstown, Dublin

Ate here with my partner and 2 friends after we had purchased a citydeal voucher. Have to say the food was lovely although we did receive stale popadoms when we first sat down. The service was good, one of the waiters that was serving us really looked like he was in a bad mood though and wasnt very polite but the other staff were very friendly. The wine we received with our deal was fine although we received 3 glasses of red 1 of which was a completely different wine to the other 2. The restaurant wasnt full but had a nice enough atmosphere. After we had finished our meal the manager came to ask us if everything had been ok, a nice touch i thought. Overall an enjoyable dinner for a good price.

Wagamama Dundrum
Unit G1, Building 12, Pembroke District, Dundrum Town Centre, Dublin 14, Dundrum, Dublin

Came here on a Monday evening after the cinema for a quick bite. The quick bite turned out to be a 40 minute wait and ok-ish food. When the waitress came and took our order (a katsu curry and a yaki soba, not that complicated) she tapped it into her little handheld device and then looked at the two of us and said, sorry, what are you having again!!?? Right, not a good start. We then waited 25 minutes until we were approached by a waiter who asked if we were still waiting for our food. We said we were and he went off to check, he came back to tell us that our order actually hadnt been put through but that they were going to make it straight away. Cue another 15 minute wait for 2 dishes that were tasy but totally overpriced for what they were. I definately wont be returning to Wagamama dundrum.

JD's Steakhouse
4 Rathfarnham Road, Dublin 6W, Terenure, Dublin

I’ve dined here quite a few times now and have loved it every time. There’s a great atmosphere, the staff are very friendly and the food is just delicious. Can get very packed on a Friday and Saturday night so I’d recommend booking if you’re gonna go either of these nights. I really recommend that chicken wings and the cheesy garlic potatoes to go with your main. The t-bone steak is also beautiful and there meat is always cooked to perfection. Can’t wait to take another trip back!!

La Dolce Vita - The Chase
Carmanhall Road, Dublin 18, Sandyford, Dublin

A lovely little family run restaurant. The service is wonderful and the food excellent. The pizza's are very tasty and more than enough for one person!! The manager is very personable and is more than happy to reccomend something from the menu. The lasagne is one of the best i have ever tasted.

Fillies Bar & Restaurant
Leopardstown Racecourse, Leopardstown, Dublin

The service is great and the menu is well stocked. I'd reccomend the bangers and mash but not the burger. I had it on our last visit and it was soggy with grease, very un-appetising. Other than that experience though i've always enjoyed it, a nice little spot to pop into for lunch.

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

Without a doubt THE best place in Dublin for a kebab! Beware if you venture in after 12am on a weekend night though, you'll have to wrestle for a seat and there'll be food bingo when they give you a number and you have to go up when its called! That's all worth it thought when you finally sit down and get it into you, YUM!

FIRE Restaurant and Lounge
Mansion House, Dawson Street, Dublin 2, Dawson Street, Dublin

Myself and my boyfriend dined here for our anniversary recently. It was such a lovely experience, the food was some of the best i have tasted and the service was fantastic. I had the duck salad and the famous prawns, absolutely divine. I've been here a few times in the past few years for the early bird and have to say it is probably the best value early bird in the city centre for the quality of food and service you receive. Cannot reccomend enough.

Siam Thai (Dundrum)
Dundrum Town Centre, South Dublin, Dundrum, Dublin

Have eaten here many times and cant fault it. The restaurant is usually quite packed so booking ahead is advised although not essential as they will usually do their best to fit you in. The food is wonderful, i reccomend the dumplings and the duck in chilli oil, absolutely gorgeous. The portion sizes are very generous as well. The early bird is excellent value. The staff are friendly and the music upstairs is a lovely touch, the two singers they have are excellent and more like enjoyable background music than a full band playing while your trying to eat!!

Vermilion
94-96 Terenure Road, Dublin 6 , Terenure, Dublin

This is quite a quiet restaurant, its got a large seating area but its never usually too full which is unusual as the food is divine!! Staff are very friendly and if you have any questions about the menu they will be happy to help. My boyfriend loves his spicy food but they had nothing on the menu that he really fancied, he asked the waiter wot the colsest thing to a madras would be and the waiter said to leave it to him, he would ask the chef to make up something special! A wonderful touch! The chili beef for starter is lovely. A great early bird menu is on offer too, €18.95 for 2 courses and €20.95 for 3. Great value and one of my favourite restaurants!

The eden is one of my favourite places to eat. The service is always great and the seating area in the bar is lovely. I'd recommend the nacho's for starters and the steak or blackened cajun chicken as a main. The menu is the same as The Morgue in Templeogue but id prefer The Eden to The Morgue. Good value and friendly staff!

Bombay Pantry Rathfarnham
Unit 2a Retail Centre, Grange Rd, Rathfarnham, Dublin

Have ordered from the Bombay Pantry a good few times now and have never been disappointed. The food is gorgeous (i recommend the butter chicken!!) and the portions are huge! You could definately eat 1 main between 2. Their seafood is lovely and they also have a fridge in the main ordering are where you can buy alot of the dishes/naan breads from the menu frozen! Very handy! As mentioned before you can sometimes have to wait up to an hour for delivery so ordering early is advised!

Ananda
Dundrum Town Centre, Dublin 14, Dundrum, Dublin

I visited Ananda last night with 4 friends for the early bird and had a very pleasant experience. The early bird is great value. I had the meat kebab platter followed by the Goan meatball curry which came with pilau rice and a plain naan, all for only €22. The food was very well presented and everything i had was delicious. The service was excellent. One of the waiters accidentally poured water into my friends almost empty wine glass, when he discovered his mistake he immediately came over and apologised and offered my friend a full glass of wine on the house. The place was packed, even on a Wednesday, and had a great atmosphere. Id reccomend booking a table before you go. I'll definately be returning to try the A La Carte menu!

Arc Cafe Bar
Liffey Vallley Shopping Centre, Fonthill Rd, West Dublin, Liffey Valley, Dublin

Visited the Arc last night for the first time and i have to say i couldnt fault it. The interior of the restaurant is lovely, the weather was quite bad out so it was quite quiet inside. Our order was taken by a very friendly waitress who chatted to us throughout our time there. I had the fish cakes and the bangers and mash. Both were excellent. My boyfriend had the mushroom soup (one of the nicest ive ever tasted!) and the chicken kiev. Total bill was €38. More than reasonable. Portions are very generous and the quality of the food is excellent. I will definately be returning to try more of the delicious menu!!

Mao Restaurant (Dundrum)
Dundrum Town Centre, Dublin 14, Dundrum, Dublin

I’ve had quite mixed experiences with Mao. I’ve been to this restaurant and the Dun Laoghaire branch and much prefer the Dun Laoghaire location. The special menu (€20 for 3 courses) is great, not as much choice as the main menu but still a few nice things. I was here last Thursday though and me experience wasn’t great. Service was one of the slowest I have ever experienced. We waited almost half an hour between our starter and main course. I couldn’t understand why as there were tons of staff just wandering around. I had the soup of the day (Ginger and Prawn) which was lovely and the Aromatic Duck Curry. I didn’t really enjoy this but that was just my personal taste, although the duck itself was lovely. I can’t recommend the Chilli Chicken Ramen enough, gorgeous! I’d also recommend the Nasi Goreng. I wouldn’t be rushing back after my experience last week but the €20 menu is great for a cheap bite.

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

This is definitely not the place to eat if you are on a budget. Myself and my friend went one Saturday afternoon, we had about 10 plates between the 2 of us (sounds like a lot but the portions are tiny!!) and it cost us almost €35! They do have some special offers but these usually don’t apply at the weekends or after a certain time in the day. The décor is great although the restaurant is out in the open just beside Marks and Spencers. You take a seat beside the conveyor belt (there are also 2 or 3 booths in the back but these are usually full!) and are given a menu that has a list of everything on the conveyor belt plus some dishes that are made to order. All plates are a different colour and each colour is a different price. The food we did have was lovely (I recommend the Katsu Curry and the Spicy Tuna rolls!) but it’s just so expensive. I’d recommend to take a trip once if you like sushi but make sure you keep an eye on what colour plates your eating as they can hike up the price quite quickly!!

The Counter Dundrum
Pembroke District, (adjacent to the Mill Pond at Town Square), Dundrum, Dublin

I had previously given this restaurant a great review but unfortunately after a recent visit, that has all changed. Upon arrival we waited 10 minutes for a table in the overcrowded restaurant (they really need to space out their tables more!). While looking through the menu i noticed that its all been changed. There's a bit more choice with salads/pre selected burgers but now they've added a section called 'premium toppings' where everything from bacon to sundried tomatoes (!?) is now being charged at 50c extra per topping!? I was here only a month ago and these were all included in your pre paid choice? Im sorry but i cant see how you can suddenly start charging for something that was free only a few weeks ago. After placing our order we then had to wait 40 minutes of our STARTER to come out. We asked the waitress twice about our order and both times she didnt return with information. The food was ok but i definately dont think its up to the standard it was a few weeks ago. I'm not sure whats happened but they definately need to improve. I understand its a busy spot but asking people to wait 40 minutes for overpriced food is ridiulous. I definately wont be returning.

China Buffet King
Cinema Building, Dundrum Town Centre, Sandyford Road, Dundrum, Dublin

Have eaten here 3 times now and only had 1 bad experience. This time around though we had a really nice dinner. We had chicken and sweetcorn soup which was lovely followed by almost 1 of every starter, and i had the thati red curry for my main which was delicious. Only problem was i wanted to eat more but was way too stuffed!! The only bad experience i had was when i went 1 Saturday and all the sauces seemed to be way too watery. I think this must have been fixed though coz its been great since! Sunday menu is only €12.90 each which is brilliant. Drinks are a bit pricey but definately not enough to stop me going again!

Howards Way (Rathgar)
8 Orwell Road, Dublin 6, Rathgar, Dublin

I have been to Howards Way in Churchtown a few times but this was my forst time in Rathgar. The restaurant is quite small and was packed with people when we arrived, not surprising for a Friday night though! I had the crab balls to start followed by the chicken pasta and bannoffi for desert. The early bird is great value with a free bottle of wine per 2 people. 2 of my friends had the steak which was quite dry but i had no complaints, definately reccomend the chicken wings and the chicken paprika pasta. The also do a really tasty lunch menu which is very reasonably priced. Id reccomend booking a table before going though as it seems to be a very popualr spot!

India Gate
1st Floor 26b Nutgrove Shopping Centre, South Dublin, Rathfarnham, Dublin

I have eaten in this restaurant many times and always come back. The food is really lovely and i think they may have gotten a new chef in the last few months as i noticed the presentation and also some of the dishes have changed, but definately for the better. I am not a vegetarian but always order the Saag Aloo as it is absolutely mouth watering! Can be quite quiet during the week but the weekends usually draw a good crowd. Staff are very friendly and always have a smile!
