Have eaten here a number of times since it's opening 2 years ago. The portions are huge, hot and great as far as pub grub goes, good variety and very well presented, steaks are good, thai style dishes very nice, proper chips! Nice cesar salad too, the carvery style dinner choice is'nt your usual heavy stodge, it's not the typical dried up and left warming all day, some deals like a free pint with certain dishes - great at lunchtime or early bird hours. Deserts to die for. Small but modern Pub very clean as are the toilets, staff nice & easy going & will get you what you want if you ask. I liek eating here, it's a pub & the grub is good.

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

I've eaten here at Lunchtime 3 times recently & it is the best in the area, the choice is vast, theres a hot carvery in a separate rom and then a salad and sandwich bar which I hope they keep for a long time! The choice is brilliant and the food is just gorgeous, most places throw a handful of cheap crisps onto your plate without even asking you, well here they ASK you if you would like some, and they aslo offer you fruit instead of the crisps which is what Irish pubs need more of! Simple things like this really make all the difference when it comes to 30 of us going for lunch with work. The sambo queue can be a little off putting but it does move rapidly and the grub is worth it, the queue is in a bad spot as the people who want hot carvery whic is also excellent) have to cross over the people in the sambo queue so it gets a bit messy if there's lots of bodies around. Deserts are delish & the coffee is perfect. Go here you wont be disappointed.

The Pilgrims Rest @ Palmerstown House
Palmerstown House, West Dublin, Palmerstown, Dublin

Ate in this new Pilgrims Rest a few weeks back, I chose the fajitas..served on a tower, smoked into our faces for about 3 solid minutes so bad we nearly choked & the entire area was thick with smoke no real taste off the chicken - it was as if the spice was cooked off it friend chose the roast chicken & ham, it was more like a not cooked enough deep fried portion it was fine though, large portions, food hot but nothing to write home about unfortunately, waiters very good and attentive but were constantly called off to do things by a senior member of staff, so when you wanted your waiter back you had to wait for them, this got annoying as my chips never arrived and I was waiting ages to prompt the waitor, then the senior staff member sends over a different one. at the end we wanted to give a tip to the chap who was meant to be looking after us as he had done a good job when he was let! When the chips did arrive I was just finished my meal and they were not fresh hand cut chips as advertised, they were horrible skinny frozen chips and they were dripping with grease cos they were'nt cooked properly. The same waiter issue mentioned earlier happened again when I wanted a drink. My friend ordered the steak pie, it was gorgeous but there was not one mushroom in it, again, false advertising on the menu. The sauces came in little plastic pots. this looked tacky for want of a better word. The door near us opened and closed all night with people coming in to go the pub! We knew we were near a door but did'nt think it would be used so much. Although you get plenty of food it's over priced for not very exciting stuff. Hope they improve as they go along.
