Musashi Noodles and Sushi Bar restaurant
15 Capel Street, Dublin 1 , City Centre North, Dublin, Area Code:
Reviewed 09th May 2012 ( visited 26th April 2012 )Is great. It is a simple cosy restaurant with very nice staff and gorgeous food. The sushi is very good and the tempura and seafood noodles just amazing! It is a must if you enjoy japanese food. PS: you can also bring your own bottles paying a supplement.
Tolteca Mexican Style Grill restaurant
38 Upper Baggot Street, Dublin 4, Baggot Street, Dublin, Area Code: Dublin 4
Reviewed 09th May 2012 ( visited 19th March 2012 )It is a great place for a quick and tasty lunch. I have tried the carnitas and the bbq fajitas and both were lovely and very very big! The deal for lunch is great as it includes a drink for the same price as a burrito or fajita and you get really stuffed. I will definately come back as soon as I can.
1 St Andrews Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
We went for a small group dinner yesterday and it was lovely. We got 3 tapas each as part of an early bird and they were all very nice. I recommend the croquetas and the Spanish omelette!
Michie Sushi (Ranelagh)
11 Chelmsford Lane, Dublin 6, Ranelagh, Dublin
Amazing sushi, have ordered a few times from them but when I went there I was positively surprised by the quality. The salmon sashimi was the best I've ever had. Definitely coming back soon!
The Portobello Restaurant
33 South Richmond street, Portobello, Dublin
Went there to eat something in the terrace and enjoy the sun, we both had stakes. The waitress was really friendly but food took quite long to be served and when it arrived it was cold. The stakes weren't good quality and the sides and mushroom sauce disappointing.
Canal Bank Cafe
146 Upper Leeson Street, Dublin 4, Ballsbridge, Dublin
We went there yesterday for a team lunch and it was a nice place. The portions are very generous and the chicken wings are delicious. The salads are big and nice and the mussels were also very good. Coming back for sure.
Jewel in the Crown (South William Street)
5 South William Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
Loved the Tandoori butter chicken! I got it with the Pilau rice and it was delicious. My partner got the Chicken Tikka Masala and it was also gorgeous. Definitely coming back!
Casey's Bar & Bistro @ The Glendalough Hotel
Glendalough, Glendalough, Wicklow
I won't go back. It's the nearest place for having lunch after walking in Glendalough but the quality of the food is quite bad. We had burgers and i had to return it because it was extremely burned, then i got a better one but still the quality of the meat is poor. The seafood chowder is ok but not great, it has a lot of cream and not much fish/seafood.
The Hungry Monk
Church Road, Greystones, Greystones, Wicklow
The place is very nice, great decoration and atmosphere and the staff is very friendly. The food is nice but not amazing. The fish and chips is good but a bit greasy. There is a bit of inconsistency on the size of their plates, but if you are hungry definitely go for the chicken wings as starter, they're nice!
The Happy Pear
Church Road, Greystones, Greystones, Wicklow
Best hot chocolate in Ireland. We went for a sweet treat after lunch and I had the best hot chocolate I've had in Ireland. The coffee apparently was very good as well and the desserts were very nice.
Wilde & Green
St. Anns, Milltown Road, Milltown, Dublin
Great place, very nice food. I had a slice of lemon cake and it was delicious, as well as the hot chocolate. Also bought a spelt bread that is very good.
Bloom Brasserie & Wine Bar
11 Upper Baggot Street, Dublin 4, City Centre South, Dublin
Beautiful restaurant with nice food but extremely slow service (arrived at 7.30pm and at 9.20 we were still waiting for the main course). I'd recommend the mussels as starter and duck as main, although some friends had the steak and it was also a good option.
Madina Desi Curry Co
60 Mary Street, Dublin 1, City Centre North, Dublin
It's a nice place with great chicken tikka masala and the portions are big! I also love their bread...
La Caverna Restaurant & Wine Bar
12 Fownes Street, Dublin 2, City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin
I went there with the Menupages voucher to try the restaurant. The food was nice but the service quite slow: after 1 hour seating in the table, we only had received the starter! The chowder is ok and so was the minestrone. The main courses were also ok, the lamb was quite good but the chicken was greasy and it was accompanied by mashed potatoes + baked potatoes! A bit too much potatoes for me, would have appreciate something different. The place is cozy and the waiters are nice even if the kitchen is extremely slow.

Taste of Brazil
32 Parliament St, Temple bar, Dublin 2, Temple Bar, Dublin
I've been there couple of times because the food is nice. I returned hoping the service improved but that wasn't the case. Both times I had to wait for around 40 minutes to be served. The last time I returned a starter because it was still frozen inside (hard to believe after 40 min)... On the other hand the food is nice, the steak and the feijoada are good, but pay attention, if you don't like garlic this is not your place! Everything is full of garlic so be sure you are ok with it! The dessert are ok, I'd recommend the passion fruit mousse. If you go, be ready to wait, ensure everything they bring you is clean and be patient!
Corfu Greek Restaurant
12 Parliment Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
We went on a Saturday for dinner and there was a great offer for starter, main and dessert. The service was great and nice, they brought the food very quickly and everything was delicious and well prepared. I strongly reccomend the lamb chops and the moussaka. It is, without a doubt, a place we'll be back soon!
Eustace Street, Temple Bar, Dublin
The dinner was not made of fresh ingredients at all. Me and my boyfriend had a steak and some salmon: the steak had a weird texture and taste; the salmon wasn't tender at all. We shared a brownie which was old and re-heated.
Ciao Bella Roma
24/25 Parliament Street, Dublin 2, City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin
I go there very often because food is good and if you go at lunch time, it is good value. In the lunch menu I strongly suggest the mussels soup (zuppa di cozze), it is very good! But be aware, sometimes there is some sand from the mussels... For the mains I love the rigatoni with aubergines. If you go for dinner and have some time and money to spend, ask for the fried seafood. Pizzas are bigger than at lunch and very good, as the meat.
