The Menupages 5-Course Tasting Menu deal at Tavern restaurant costing 60 euro for two including a bottle of wine was an absolute steal. Everything about the experience at Tavern was first rate, with superb service and beautiful food, perfectly cooked in innovative ways and cleverly presented, especially the fun dessert presentation. We will definitely return to this excellent restaurant at The Dylan Hotel.

Il Caffe di Napoli
41 Westland Row, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Generally authentic Italian restaurant with friendly Italian waiters and waitresses. Nice atmosphere also, with open plan kitchen right next to the main dining area. Three of us dined there and we were very pleased for the most part. However, I had tournedos Rossini but genuine foie gras was not used in the dish, merely a thin scraping of chicken liver pâté, which was disappointing.

Bleecker Street Cafe Bar
68 Upper Dorset St, City Centre North, Dublin

Nice enough setting and good service but very ordinary and stodgy food. Not a place I'd recommend.

Brioche
51 Elmwood Avenue Lower, Dublin 6, Ranelagh, Dublin

It was my first time at Brioche but I'm pretty sure it won't be my last. Tucked away just off the main drag of Ranelagh this small, charming restaurant offers exceptionally well executed dishes that show innovation and imagination at work in the kitchen. We chose the Tasting Menu available on the evening which I notice from the website has already changed completely even though we were there only five days ago. I really liked the stylish Art Nouveau and Art Deco mix of the interior and the overall relaxed French-style ambience. As well as the remarkable food, there is a concise and well priced wine list, with wine pairing options for the Tasting Menu. Service was friendly, efficient and thoroughly professional, highlighted by the lack of drama in dealing with an embarrassing glass smashing incident at our table.

L'Ecrivain Restaurant
109a Lower Baggot Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

First time dining at l'Ecrivain thanks to the Menupages tasting menu deal. All of the courses on the tasting menu were very good, with the slight exception of the lamb dish, and service was excellent throughout the meal. Drinks (sparkling water, two glasses of champagne, two glasses of Vouvray and a bottle of Gigondas) were not kind to the wallet but all of the wines were delicious and appropriate for the food.

La Mere Zou
22 St Stephens Green, Dublin , City Centre South, Dublin

This is my first review of La Mere Zou on Menupages but I've been eating there on a regular basis since it first opened twenty years ago. That fact alone should be enough to tell you that this restaurant is one of the best in Dublin in terms of cuisine, authenticity, value, service and friendliness.

Le Bon Crubeen
81-82 Talbot Street, Dublin 1, City Centre North, Dublin

Le Bon Crubeen is an excellent spot for casual dining and the Menupages offer we used made it even better value than it already is. There is something for everyone on the extensive menu. All of the dishes we had were interesting, tasty and well executed. One minus point I might mention, however, is that the wines on offer are a tad over-priced, in my opinion.

Charming Noodles
105 Parnell Street, City Centre North, Dublin

Charming Noodles cannot be described as a restaurant in the way western people understand what a restaurant should be. It is an 'eating house' typical of many that you still find in China. There are absolutely no frills there. In fact, there is very little comfort there at all, including a notable lack of heat in the four square room that the food is served in! Almost everybody eating in the restaurant on the night we were there kept their coats on, and it has been similarly frigid this winter on other occasions I have been there. However, if you can get over these not inconsiderable drawbacks, you will enjoy some very wholesome, honest food served in very generous portions. With the Menupages offer we used, it was a steal and we still have another one to use before the offer ends. However, I think we might wait until the weather becomes a fair bit milder before going again. Either that or bring your own portable heater and hope you're sitting near a socket!
