Usually I go to Milano for a lunch between college and work. Service is good, staff are quite friendly, they always offer you a cup of coffee after your meal. I like pizza there. It looks good, it's not too big not too small, ideal for 1 person! This restaurant is fine for a quick lunch, but I would not go there for a romantic date.

I have been there once, came for the lunch. Bar menu is quite poor. This bar is huge, so to catch a waiter or waitress is a big problem there. I tried lasagne. I could not even finish it. It was so bad. In general, I am not a fan of bar food, but food I ate there was really bad. I don't understand how people can even pay for it. Not coming back there at all.

Buenos Aires Grill
Unit 2 Castle Way, Golden Lane, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

3 of us went there for dinner on a Friday night. Upon arrival we were asked about vouchers and reservation, which we did not have, yet we got a table. For a starter we ordered 2 portions of chicken wings and chowder. Portions of wings were big, a bit messy and we did not have enough napkins nor a bowl of water for fingers. Chowder looked better than it tasted. For main course we had green curry, surn'n'turf and pasta. None of us were impressed with the food. I personally love meat and it was probably the worst rare steak I ever had. It was overcooked and looked burnt. Dishes are rather simple and lack any kind of spices. We were disappointed. Regarding staff, well, they did not even know if they sell cocktails, nor they knew what dishes are served with. They never bothered offering us dessert menu, and when we asked, they brought us something like a small plastic card under the glass, did they take it out of window??? Nope, definitively not going back.

Siam Thai (Andrews Street)
14/15 Andrews Street, City Centre South, Dublin

4 of us went there for a New Year's dinner. As we booked in advance we got a very nice table near the window. I don't exactly remember what I ordered, but I think it was duck. Very nice! I totally liked the food there though my friends were a bit disappointed in their choices of main courses. It's a casual place though a romantic dinner would be nice too I think. Nice warm light inside and all comfy. I would come there again.

Odessa
13 Dame Court, Dublin, City Centre South, Dublin

Went there with my boyfriend, just 2 of us on Friday evening for a romantic dinner. Atmosphere is nice, but service is very slow. Had to wait maybe 20 minutes for our order to be taken. And even when placing order waiter was distracted all the time and had to re-ask. Though he gave us good wine recommendation Food was nice, but for the name which this place calls it'self, as 'Favorite Dublin's restaurant'.. I expected more. Dishes were rather simple. I mean food is tasty, but poorly decorated plates. For casual dining place is good, but would not go there for a romantic dinner any more.

ZAO Thai Restaurant
96B Omni Park Shopping Centre, Swords road , North Dublin, Santry, Dublin

We go to this place really often. It's very nice there in the evening. Candles, nice lights etc. Friendly staff, they always try to keep you happy. We never had problems with them. I usually order sea food and a few starters. Always enjoyed my meal. Once I asked for rice noodles. It was not in the menu, but they prepared it specially for me. That was very nice. Once we were there in a busy Sat eve and still we got out good service. So I don't know why re-viewers are complaining.

Independent Pizza Co
28 Drumcondra Rd Lower, Dublin 9, Drumcondra, Dublin

We went there for a lunch rainy Monday. Place was half empty. That was good, we got fast service. I don't remember which pizza I took, the name was with Ham something like that. It's cooked like Margarita and then fresh leaves, tomatoes and parma ham is added. Tastes fresh and different. Really nice)) My boyfriend took Smokey Joe pizza. It has a lot of meat. Tasty. But I didn't like BBQ sauce in it. Place is quite nice. Prices are fine. So we will be back)))

Wagamama - Stephen's Green
St Stephen's Green Centre, South King St, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

This place is very good for a quick lunch. It is usually crowded, but service is fast and staff are friendly. As it was mentioned before you get the feeling that staff are rushing you after you have finished your meal. I never spend more than 40 minutes there. I usually take sea food yaki soba, sea food mix in a big bowl, it's like 2 in 1, soup and main course. Ice cream is very good for dessert. And their plum wine, ooooh, my favourite! I can't find it anywhere else exept this restaurant, so I am ready to come back there all the time just for this wine!

Yamamori Noodles
71-72 South Great Georges Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

I really love japanese food. As soon as I told this to my friend he showed me this place. Sushi is great and Sea food Yaki Soba is just perfect! They always bring you green tea as soon as you arrive. Dishes are quite big, so main course is just enough to eat. Staff are nice, but when it's crowded it can take some time to wait for service. Lunch prices are half less than dinner prices.
