I went to the Arc Sunday evening and was totally not impressed. For starters i had caesar salad which was actually lovely but for €7.95 (€2 extra) for a bit of chicken i thought it was a bit much. My husband had shrimps which were lovely but again a bit pricey for 4 little pieces. The main course was where they really let themselves down. I had the pork belly which was a really small piece of pork, crackling and a side portion of chips. The pork belly i should of been able to slide my knife through but i found i had to saw through. The crackling could of broken a tooth it was that hard. It tasted like it had been cooked hours before. The chips also tasted like they had been cooked hours before and reheated. My husband had the ravoli and the sauce was so bland like it came from a jar. Overall their portions sizes were so small, that the quality should of been of a high level, but we were left hungary and disappointed. I used to always go to the Arc for a treat but now i will be looking elsewhere.

Unit 1, Village Shopping Centre, Dublin 15, Castleknock, Dublin

We when here with our menupages voucher. The food was different and we both wanted to try everything !! The clientele seemed to be regulars which is always a good sign. They also do a great early bird menu. The staff were very professional and attentive.

Seasons Restaurant, InterContinental Dublin
InterContinental Dublin, Simmonscourt Road, Ballsbridge, Ballsbridge, Dublin

We used our Menupages voucher here, we had a wait time of 3 weeks to use it on a saturday. When we arrived we were asked if we wanted water, we said yes. We were given a bottle that cost €6.50 we were not offered any iced water that seemed to be doing the rounds. This should of been offered as in iced, still or sparkling. The staff were very attentive my glass of wine was never empty, at €40 a bottle i expected this for the Four Seasons. We had Soup and salmon for starters this was lovely, followed by curry for main. After dinner we sat in the lobby for a cocktail this was really nice. The atmosphere was complimented with piano been played.

I went there yesterday for the Early Bird, 4 courses for €20 very reasonable and very nice. The service was very efficent and attentive. The decor however, the carpet needs replacing badly and needs updating.

I went there on Saturday night. I thought the food was absolutely lovely but the staff were not that great or friendly. That and how expensive it was would put me off going again, pity though cos the food was lovely.

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

I went there last night with my husband. We were waiting at least 10 minnutes before we even got a menu and then a further 10-15 for our wine. The service was really slow, defintely a shortage of staff. At lot of the diners where very disgrunted about this. The food however was lovely the portions could of been bigger though.
