I am not usually one to write a review, but the night we had at La Boheme was so amazing I felt I had to comment. There were 4 of us and we were seated straight away in the centre of the main dining room, which has a wonderful atmosphere. Staff are extremely efficient without rushing around. Despite the restaurant being very busy, we were so well looked after. Now to the food....it was so good that the fact that the menu was only €35 was shocking (in a very good way!!) The Mise en Bouche was a nice little surprise at the start. My starter was a medley of haddock creme broulé, smoked salmon and a fish mousse. Beautifully presented and extremely tasty. I had the Irish rib eye for my main, which was perfectly cooked and again, the presentation was lovely. By the time desert came around, i was so stuffed, but I had to try something because everything else had been so wonderful - I can't remember what it was called, but it was a type of apple cake. I couldn't finish it but that is no reflection on the food. A little plate of petit fours was put on our table with our tea and coffee, but despite how lovely they looked, I just wasn't able. Wine included, we paid €15 more per head for the meal than we had done for a very lacklustre menu the evening before. I would nearly drive to Waterford just to eat here again!!!

I have eaten here twice recently. It is a pity you cannot reserve a table as hanging around can be quite tiresome and the waiting area is not very large. The first time I ate here I thought the food was amazing, so much choice and so tasty. The candle-lit atmosphere was lovely and warm. The lady who served us was patient, informative and very on the ball. Lovely wine as well. The second time was a little different, it was mid week, the service was not as good, once served we were kind of abandoned....maybe because we were not drinking that night. Anyway, the food was still good, though not as good as our original night...maybe a different chef. Overall, i would go back, but on the weekend.

Deep
12 West Pier, North Co. Dublin, Howth, Dublin

What a find....you could easily overlook Deep as you stroll around Howth, it is the far end of the pier, facing a warehouse!!!! From the outside, it does not look like much, but they have done an amazing job with the interior - bright, fresh and a mirrored wall gives the image of greater space. The staff are friendly and attentive. We were a party of 2 and ordered the seafood platter - it was so yummy, full of Fish cakes / Calamari / Smoked Salmon on brown bread / Crayfish in a lemon mayonnaise / Mixed green leaves / Sweet chilli dip and garlic aioli. We were in heaven - the calamari was very tender, not a bit chewy, the smoked salmon was so soft and tasty.....everything was great and more than enough for 2 people. Will definitely return.
