Our first time to eat here under the new management but still wonderful if not even better. Would love to have tried so many things on the menu particularly the Frito Misto in their enticing brown paper parcels. Really good food, well priced glass of wine and good coffee too. I would have liked some dressed leaves with the antipasto but only a minor quibble.

Had dinner with two friends here last week, very good value at €25/3 courses. Service was prompt and friendly. Starters were excellent, smoked duck, chicken caesar and liver parfait were demolished with lovely sourdough bread. Mains were generally good but let the side down slightly with lamb rump a bit lacking in jus though nicely cooked and tasty and lukewarm potato gratin. The 'fresh haddock' could have been a bit fresher though again properly cooked. Desserts were light and delicious though there was more apple than berry in the apple/berry crumble. All in all very enjoyable and nothing that couldn't be easily put right. Will be back.

White Tea
102 Upper Georges Street, Dun Laoghaire, Dublin

Really fresh and inventive salads and sandwiches. Best dressing you'll ever taste. The cakes are so good, proper home made ones but far better than I could make at home, you can taste the butter. Their soups too are lovely and homemade, my favourite breakfast/lunch/afternoon tea spot in Dun Laoghaire

The Halfway House
Walkinstown Road, Walkinstown, Dublin

Had lunch with a friend here last week and found it to be the worst pub lunch I have had in a long time. We ordered fresh fish deep fried in batter which the menu stated was cooked to order. The batter was flabby and extremely greasy, the fish was rubbery and unidentifiable. The vegetables were overcooked and watery and the mash was gluey. Having returned the food without any quibble, we asked for freshly cooked fish and were shortly presented with an even worse version of the fish.The roast potatoes were nice (hence the half a star) so we ate them and left. I have eaten here many times in the past when it was a great (and busy) place for a carvery but sadly no longer. Should have been warned when we had no trouble with parking & getting a table!
