Pandinis
Unit 3, Newlands Cross Retail Centre, West Dublin, Clondalkin, Dublin

not a bad place, was quite busy too for a Wednesday evening. Good menu selections but food was a little disappointing. Bruchetta served on some sliced loaf, certainly not a crispy baguette or rustic Italian bread as you would expect. Lasagne was good, pizza was good but not great, the base was nice but the topping and sauce stopped about two inches before the edge! I'd go back but not in a hurry.

Chang Asian Restaurant
Village Court, Esker Hill, West Dublin, Lucan, Dublin

The staff are incredibly attentive and could not have been more helpful. One of the starters we ordered was not on the menu but was replaced with something else. With regards to the food, we had two starters, Tom Kha Gai and Duck rolls. The rolls were tiny, three of them in a steamer barely a mouthful each and twice as much pastry as filling but we were offered plum sauce with them which was nice. The Tom Kha was very pleasant but was not the traditional white colour but was enjoyed! For main course we had Pad Thai and Beef Massaman Curry, I would have liked brown rice with it but chips, boiled or fried rice were the only options. The dishes were well presented and very tasty. Pad Thai is traditionally served with Lime, however there was none and we were offered lemon in its place. As I said, staff were great just a little let down by small things.

Castello Bruno
Main Street, Castleknock Village, Dublin 15, Castleknock, Dublin

I have been here before and had a better experience. I'm was disappointed this time. On the same note, I completely understand how difficult it is to run a place like this so allowances have to be made for what seems to be a very tired owner/manager, mistakes on the bill, not checking back on the table, delays and a rather tasteless pizza that despite putting salt on it ( I NEVER season food that should already be great) and chilli oil that had not even a tiny hint of chilli in it and seems to be some cheap vegetable oil topped into a bottle with flakes that I am guessing have been in there for quite some time. Having worked in the industry for a long time and a lover of great food, I'm probably a little more observant than most. I might go back, but probably not

Wrights Anglers Rest
Strawberry Beds, West Dublin, Dublin 20, Chapelizod, Dublin

The Anglers Rest is one of those lovely countryside pubs with amazing food and just a stones-throw from the city. I have been a couple of times, last time was on a date after spending one of the only really nice days so far this year in the Phoenix Park. Despite being late afternoon getting there, it was quite busy. Being able to site outside in the sun and enjoy good food is great (at night time they do have heaters outside too). We had starters and mains. For starters we shared the Duck Liver parfait which was not only beautifully presented but tasted devine! Main course, given the abundant sunshine, I selected the seafood salad. After the starter I should have ordered a starter portion as it was a great portion of very well cooked fish. Squid is one of those hard-to-get-right fish and it was cooked to perfection. Very tasty and filling salad (only thing that let it down a little was the dressing with looked like a cheap marie-rose out of a bottle). My dining partner had the fish and chips - beautiful chunky chips and really great fish, served with a nice tartare sauce. Overall, a great place. Wine glasses definately need polishing (they were very dirty at the base and had watermarks) but aside from that and the sauce served with the salad - the whole experience was amazing as always! Service is great, the manager (or owner, not too sure?) is very plesant to deal with and I will definitely be back with some more new diners. If you have not tried it, they I suggest you do, I hear there are some great nights out there too - its a big venue and lots of fun! Easy parking across the road, great food, great service you cant go wrong!

Dobbins Restaurant
15 Stephen Lane, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Its another winner! We booked rather late today for early bird menu but unfortunately had some trouble finding the restaurant so didnt make it until 7.15pm. I was delighted when the very helpful Maitre D suggested the Special Menu which is available until 8pm. We were sat in a booth which allowed for private conversation and an intimate dinner. Three courses was definatley too much as the food was very rich. A terrine of foie gras/ham was nice but not something I would order again with the chutney and celeriac remoulade not quite doing what I thought it would for my tastebuds. Main course I had a breaded veal escalope with veg which was nice but not as delicious as my eating partners 'fish and chips' a beautiful piece of cod in a tempura batter with nicely cooked chunky chips, minted mushy peas and beautiful house made tartar sauce. Dessert, that was a whole different expericence and one which my tastebuds (and hips) wont forget in a hurry! Warm Belgian chocolate and orange tart? I have eaten some desserts in my time but this was absolutely smooth and orgasmic - absolutely devine! Whoever made it definately knows what (s)he is doing. I'll be back, thats for sure!

Bloom Brasserie & Wine Bar
11 Upper Baggot Street, Dublin 4, City Centre South, Dublin

Service is as always, brilliant. I go here on a regular basis and love it :) The restaurant itself is very nicely laid out and although it is downstairs it does boast a nice little back garden which I believe is open in the evenings. I have enjoyed two lunches here latley - one for a buiness meeting and one with an old friend. It hits the spot each time and they serve great coffee to finish off the meal. Keep up the good work guys!

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

I visited the restaurant with my boyfriend for a romantic meal. We left very pleased after devouring two mouthwatering desserts-bannoffi pie which was clearly home made and worth every sweet calorie along with a healthy portion of tiramisu icecream. Surprisingly we were able to eat them after completing two courses prior to that, both of which were ok. Starters were nice but nothing worth writing about we had calamari and filo wrapped prawns. Mains were a little more impressive with the fish special of the day a whole trout served with steamed veg and chips (could have done without the frozen chips) and linguine with a cream sauce and good amount of chicken and the biggest prawns I have ever eaten, and I have eaten some prawns in my time. They were so big they actually looked like lobster tail! All in all a good experience, a little crowded for a romantic meal but good service and quality for money.....

Little Caesars Pizza (City Centre)
5 Balfe Street, Near Westbury Hotel, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Went for lunch yesterday and had a really enjoyable meal. Service was fast and good. The restaurant was quite quiet but considering the recession and the fact that most people are on holidays during these couple of weeks it was ok. The menu for lunch has been re-printed and all main courses (pastas, chicken, pizza and panninis) are now a very reasonable 6.95. Portion sizes have been reduced accordingly but quality has not. I had the Pollo Alla Diavola with salad and it was very tasty and nicely cooked. The only thing I could fault was the pool of olive oil underneath and on my salad, so if you're not a fan ask them to go easy on it. All in all a great lunch, well priced and definately will be back :)

The Courtyard (Navan) INACTIVE
The Courtyard Bar Athlumney Navan, Navan, Meath

Unfortunately, I have nothing nice to say about Flatley's anymore. It appears that they have lost their chef and that is blatantly obvious in the food. Having had a great meal the last day, I took my mother for an early bird only to find that they are no longer offering early bird (although the menu clearly states so). So Mam opted for the chicken fajitas and I ordered the fillet steak as the last time I had one there it was beautifully presented and to my delight cooked to the exact temp that I had requested - Med/Rare. This time, after waiting 25 minutes I received a well done, and to my horror - butterflied fillet steak with some fat on the end. WHO butterflies a fillet steak and serves it way overcooked 25 minutes after the order comes in? If the restaurant was busy I can understand the delay but on a Friday night when there is only one couple with a baby there there is NO excuse for this. 29euro for a steak like that? Upsetting yes, acceptable - no, not by any standards. I also asked for vegetables which were root veg, served deep-fried! What is the point of eating veg? Healthy option please.... Anyway, we got the cheque and left. I was not taking a chance on a second order.

Dunderry Lodge Restaurant
Robinstown, Navan, Trim, Meath

Took my mam to the lodge for an early dinner on Sunday, although it was not busy at all there was a nice atmosphere while we sat in front of a lovely open fire while we had a pre-dinner drink and placed our wine and food order. I was very disappointed to be handed two menus, neither of which were complete. When I received yet another two the waitress could not find one that had a full menu and wine list in it. A set menu is offered with dessert yet there is no indication of what desserts may be on offer. The set menu contains lots of lovely dishes yet they are not available on the a la carte menu? I have to say the the meal was lovely, I had the pate which is clearly home made, very pleasant and light. For mains we had the fillet beef and the beef wellington. Both were quite substantial and cooked to the correct temprature. Veg served with them were not overcooked, just right. No room for dessert :( Overall a good experience but definitely need to sort the menu issue as it's good food that is not being advertised correctly!

Valley Cafe
43 Watergate Street Navan, Navan, Meath

Anyone who doesn't know the Valley hasn't lived. Navan's oldest and most reliable chipper which is packed each lunchtime and evening when the guys finish or break from work. Good quality food all the time. Best feed after a night out on the town!
