I am a little addicted to Liberty Grill. The perfect stopover on my stroll into town and always a lovely atmosphere. The service is always friendly and reasonably fast. However as a result of the great location and good atmosphere, at the weekends there is ALWAYS a queue to sit down (I think they only take reservations for dinner-not brunch). The main menu food is lovely and a really reasonable price. You can get a big breakfast, coffee and another drink for under €10. A great place to meet friends on a budget. The only issue I have with the food is that I should learn to be less adventurous...the food from the main menu is on the main menu for a reason. The specials for each month are just tests, and unfortunately don't work sometimes. The last day I went there I had poached eggs on potato cakes. The cakes were dry and the hollandaise sauce did not go with them at all. I had to order toast to go with my eggs instead. I have tried specials a few times and they never live up to the main menu. The main menu is always delicious though! Highly recommended!

I go to Eddie Rockets regularly for lunch with colleagues and every time I tell myself that I will not go again. The main problem is that I only have one hour for lunch, so the food taking over 30 minutes to be served (especially when it is often reheated and at the end of the day, is only burgers and chips) is unacceptable. The prices are pretty high considering the portions of food. The last time I was there one of my companions had totally reheated chips. However the burgers are usually good enough and the milkshakes are lovely, I suppose you can't really expect fine dining in Eddie Rockets anyway.

Bodega! (Waterford)
54 John Street, Waterford, Waterford City, Waterford

Good location and lovely decor inside. However the PRICES are just high...3 courses for 3 people and two alcoholic drinks cost €130! The food was lovely, especially the lamb shank and the chocolate and berry fool, but it was all a bit dampened by the enormous price tag. The service was...ok. The waitresses were not rude or anything, just not particularly friendly. I had been here before so I knew it would be expensive but I will rethink going back again to be honest.

Strasbourg Goose
17/18 French Church Street, Cork City, Cork

My mother, my boyfriend and I entered at around 7pm looking for a table without a reservation. They did their very best to accommodate us which was very kind as they were pretty much booked out. I had been there a few times before and found the 3 courses for €20 extremely good value. The food was gorgeous - especially the daub of beef and the special pork belly ribs starter. The only flaw that I could find with the food is that the portions are not very big, but for €20 I can't complain! The service was excellent and I would strongly recommend this little gem that I walked past so many times never realising what a lovely meal I could be having!
