Restaurant Reviews from Tasty1
10a Merrion Rd, Dublin 4, Ballsbridge, Dublin, Area Code:
Reviewed 17th January 2011 ( visited 16th January 2011 )Quite possibly the busiest restaurant in Dublin yesterday due to the citydeal! Two main courses and two glasses of prosecco for €20 - how could we resist. We chose the rump steak and the chicken fricassee. Both were delicious, and steak was cooked perfectly to order with a side of bearnaise sauce. Both mains were served with homemade chips - WOW the best chips we've eaten in a restaurant in many years. Roast is worth a return visit just for the chips! To finish we shared a luxurious chocolate brownie with divine pistachio icecream and chocolate sauce. Fantastic value and great service from this relatively new restaurant.
Cortina’s Mexican Restaurant
The Pembroke District, Dundrum Town Centre, South Dublin, Dundrum, Dublin, Area Code: Dublin 14
Reviewed 23rd April 2010 ( visited 22nd April 2010 )After a excellent Cortina Margarita on the rocks and a 15 minute wait we secured a table for 4 yesterday evening. While we read the menu we ordered tortilla chips, guacamole and the mango-chilli-lime salsa. Our waitress mentioned the salsa had a kick but it appeared the kitchen forgot to add the chilli & lime - it was very bland. We ordered the house red and white wines and they were out of stock of the red which was disappointing. We shared the Mixed Botanas Platter for starters which was delicious and included more than listed on the menu. We opted for the delux taco platter, burito mjuado, enchaladas and the quesadilla for mains - all were average, well presented a but dull in flavour. Our bill came to €159. I'm not sure I'd return.
1 Victoria House, Haddington Road, Dublin 4, Ballsbridge, Dublin
Super service and really good food.
Beeftro - Dundrum
Pembroke District, Dundrum Town Centre , South Dublin, Dundrum, Dublin
We had an excellent New York Strip and Sirloin Rump cooked to perfection. The sides were fantastic particularly the crispy onions. Good service too but I think its a bit stingy to charge €1.50 for sauce! Nice that they have a gluten free beer on the menu.
Fade Street Social - The GastroBar
4-6 Fade Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin
I couldn't fault our experience here. The food was truly amazing and the staff are extremely knowledgeable. Everything we ordered was bursting with flavour and perfectly cooked. The highlights for us were the lamb flatbread, the denver roll steak from the specials board and the goose gog cocktail. I look forward to eating in the gastro bar in the future.
The Chop House Gastro Pub
2 Shelbourne Road, City Centre South, Dublin
We shared a divine seafood medley plate to start from the specials board it was very generous in size followed by two fantastic steaks, cooked to perfection and well seasoned. Unfortunately, the steaks were served on tiny boards - bring back plates I say! Couldn't fault the food or the service.
Pembroke District, Dundrum Shopping Centre, Dublin 14 , Dundrum, Dublin
Yes, the tables are close together but that's my only complaint. The service, atmosphere and food were all top notch. The meat plank was delicious as was the mussel linguine. Its nice to be served food on hot plates - even the bowl for our mussel shells was hot! Some menu items had sold out which I would take as an indication that everything is super fresh and prepared daily. We were sorry we didn't try the special gnocchi – it looked fantastic at a neighbouring table.
Marco Polo not live
O'Connell Street, Limerick City, Limerick
Lovely restaurant, the decor is beautiful. We shared the pork crostini to start - it was unusual but very tasty. I had the spicy prawn and smoked salmon risotto with rocket, It had just the right amount of chilli/spiciness for me and plenty of juicy prawns. My husband the BBQ half chicken which he said was delicious but possibly the smallest chicken he has ever seen! There is a nice selection of wines by the glass, carafe or bottle and a good beer selection too. We didn't have time for desert - maybe on our next visit to Limerick. It is also worth noting that the service was very attentive and friendly and our waiter recommended some good pubs in the area too.
The Hen House
The Pavilions, South Dublin, Dun Laoghaire, Dublin
We had a reservation for St Patrick's night but it turns out we didn't need to book ahead as the Hen House was very quiet (as were the other restaurants beside it). We both ordered the wood fired half chicken. The chicken was succulent with a delicious crispy-salty-finger-licking skin. Loved the roasted red pepper dip too. We will return to try the brunch menu.
13 Dame Court, Dublin, City Centre South, Dublin
We had a 7pm booking and were advised we needed to vacate the table by 9pm. Service was attentive but we didn't feel rushed. Stars of the evening were the pate, the roast chicken with a delicious & festive sauce and the fish stew. The cheese plate was also pretty good. Worth a visit.
La Fougere @ Knockranny House Hotel
Castlebar Road, Westport, Mayo
We had the most amazing anniversary dinner in La Fougere last Thursday evening. We ate from both the table d'hote and a la carte menus. The venison and turbot in particular were absolutely delicious and the signature chocolate plate was mind blowing. We'll worth a visit if you are in the Westport area. It is quite obvious why Seamus Commons was recognised as the Best Chef in Connaught.
94 Terenure Road East, Dublin 6, Dublin 6w, Terenure, Dublin
We nad no reservation and were too late for the early bird menu and so ordered only main courses. Both both (jumbo prawns and ginger monkfish) were delicious. Service was attentive. Next time I'll make a reservation.
Fallon and Byrne
11-17 Exchequer Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
Great value pre-theatre menu which is available all evening. We started with the carrot & orange soup and mackerel salad. Unfortunately the mackerel was replaced by a white fish which couldn't stand up to the dressing but the soup was zingy and refreshing. We both had the rib-eye & french fries with béarnaise sauce which was very tasty indeed - clean plates all round! For desert we had creme brulee with the most divine rhubarb ice-cream and crunch homemade ginger biscuits and the chocolate and orange mousse which I managed to have a little taste of! Fantastic food and first class service in this beautiful restaurant.
Gibson's Deli & Bakery
17 Wicklow St, City Centre South, Dublin
We had the most delicious and creamy scrambled eggs for breakfast here on Saturday morning. Great coffee & country toast too and the tiny cupcakes served with coffee are scrumptious.
15 Castle Market Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
What a find - La Maison is a wonderful restaurant. We had the most delicious langoustines in chilli and garlic butter and the white asparagus to start. All three of us chose fish for mains, Cod & petit pois a la Francaise, seabass en croute and the skillet of fish and all were fantastic. All perfectly cooked and just the right portion size. The presentation is lovely too, particularly the skillets/wooden board and the little copper pans for the side orders. Overall a great experience.
Mount Wolseley Hotel, Tullow, Carlow
We were very impressed by Fredericks. The service was exceptional throughout the meal. On arrival we had some very good olive bread and homemade brown bread served with tomato reduction, pesto and butter. An amuse bouche of tomato gazpacho set the tone for what was to come. The cured salmon was served with apple & horseradish and the most amazing beetroot sorbet. The oxtail ravioli was proclaimed exceptional but I didn't get to taste it! I had duck for main course – it was cooked medium to order and was succulent with crispy skin. The cod was also very good but quite a small portion. Sides of roasted root veg and baby potatoes were tasty too. The deserts were spectacular and the cheese board contained five cheeses with breadsticks, crackers, grapes and walnut oil but too large for one person - not a bad complaint. Coffee and petit four finished off an excellent dinner. Well done Fredericks.
26 Blooms Lane , Lower Ormond Quay, City Centre North, Italian Quarter, Dublin
We stopped in just after 7pm yesterday evening for a quick dinner before a concert in the Academy. The restaurant was almost full. We ordered two beers, water, bruschetta to share and two Diavola pizzas. We had to remind them about the beer (maybe they need more than two waiters) but the starter came quickly and was delicious. The pizza was good but not quite spicy enough for our tastes. €40 all in.
L'Officina by Dunne And Crescenzi (Dundrum)
Dundrum Shopping Centre, Dublin 14, Dundrum, Dublin
I have often wanted to eat here and managed to snag a table yesterday evening, its always busy. We shared a delicious bruschetta pomodoro, where do they get such ripe tomatoes? The Risotto gamberoni was good but contined only one large prawn with some smaller pieces mixed through. The rigatoni was excellent. We also had a glass of Gavi di Gavi, large sparking water and an affogato and the bill came to €53. Well worth another visit.
Eden Bar & Lounge
Grange Road, Rathfarnham, Dublin
We ordered from the A La Carte menu on Sunday evening. Good service, tasty pub grub and reasonable prices.
The Yew Tree @ Chester Beatty Inn
Main Street, Ashford, Wicklow
My mum and I stopped in here for a late lunch last Saturday. We arrived just after 2pm. There were no staff available when we arrived so we seated ourselves. Eventually we went in search of someone and menus arrived minutes later. There is a good selection of soup, sandwiches and hot lunches available. We chose the French Onion soup and cajun chicken panini. The soup came with very salty brie toasts but we were offered brown bread too. The panini was very tasty and full of succulent chicken breast but the accompanying chips were soggy and only lukewarm. We shared a lemon meringue pie which was very tasty. With tea, coffee and 7up the bill came to €27. While the food is tasty the service is lacklustre and the room is very dull - maybe some background music and better lighting or some flowers? It could also do with a good dusting - there were cobwebs hanging from every light!
10a Merrion Rd, Dublin 4, Ballsbridge, Dublin
Quite possibly the busiest restaurant in Dublin yesterday due to the citydeal! Two main courses and two glasses of prosecco for €20 - how could we resist. We chose the rump steak and the chicken fricassee. Both were delicious, and steak was cooked perfectly to order with a side of bearnaise sauce. Both mains were served with homemade chips - WOW the best chips we've eaten in a restaurant in many years. Roast is worth a return visit just for the chips! To finish we shared a luxurious chocolate brownie with divine pistachio icecream and chocolate sauce. Fantastic value and great service from this relatively new restaurant.
The Chili Club
Anne's Lane, South Anne Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
We had our christmas party here in December. The upstairs room is just large enough for a table for 18. While the menu appeared to be great value at €29.50 the starter and main course portions were VERY small. Food was tasty and service efficient but I would not recommend it for a large group.
Town Bar and Grill
21 Kildare Street, City Centre South, Dublin
Tasty food but the portions are very, very small. We had caprese salad, crab salad and goats cheese to start which were all delicious. We ordered two specials of sea bass and the rack of lamb for main courses. As pointed out by a previous reviewer we were not asked if we would like side orders and were very disappionted with the size of our main courses. We though €29.95 for two chops from a rack of lamb with a spoon of crushed root vegetables is way too expensive.
Itsa @ Dun Laoghaire (Bagel Store)
The Pavilion, Royal Marine Road, Dun Laoghaire, Dublin
I visit here at least once every weekend for breakfast. The service is consistently good and the bagels and coffee are first class. Climbing over all the buggies parked inside the door and around the small tables is the only challenge.
1 St Andrews Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
I recently dined at Salamanca as part of a group of 12. For a Tuesday evening the restaurant was fairly busy. Our waiter was great, very knowledgeable about the dishes and recommended how we should order. We went with two tapas each and a selection of potatoes and salads for the table. Everyone was impressed with the food - only one or two comments about the fish dishes - prawns were "wooly" and the monkfish skewer contained more salmon than monkfish. Deserts are not very Spanish but good nonetheless.
Stir Restaurant & Bar
Maldron Hotel Dublin Airport, North Dublin, Santry, Dublin
Great lunch food but its very expensive. We had the open prawn sandwich, mineral water and a coffee and it was almost €16 each. The service is excellent.
Cava Spanish Restaurant & Tapas Bar
51 Lower Dominick Street, Galway City, Galway
This is the third tapas restaurant I've eaten at in the last 2 months and probably the best so far. My sister and I made a reservation for 9pm last Saturday. We arrived a few minutes early and were seated at the tiny bar for a drink before our table was ready. The restaurant was busy and had live music which created a really authentic atmosphere. We ordered a bottle of pink cava which was perfect considering the evening was so hot. The waitress recommended we order 5 dishes between two of us - greedily we ordered 6 (!) one of which was the blackboard special of venison sausage with beans and morcilla. The sausage was succulent and flavoursome, we had meant to ask if it could be bought locally but forgot after our dreamy desert!. We also had the patas bravas, a zinngy orange rack of pork, a very tasty chicken skewer, sensationally broad bean puree and some chorizo in sherry - all top notch. Back to the dreamy desert - churros for two which was truly amazing. Four piping hot and freshly baked doughnuts with a rich dark chocolate sauce alongside chocolate icecream, not to be missed! Our bill came to €89.00 and it was worth every cent. Delicioso!
Mauzac Tapas Bar - Closed
Church Road, Greystones, Wicklow
I don't visit Greystones very often but if I lived closer I would be a regular at Mauzac. I was part of a large group and we were all very impressed. The food and wine were both excellent and great value for money and the service was friendly and efficient. Try it!
Cortina’s Mexican Restaurant
The Pembroke District, Dundrum Town Centre, South Dublin, Dundrum, Dublin
After a excellent Cortina Margarita on the rocks and a 15 minute wait we secured a table for 4 yesterday evening. While we read the menu we ordered tortilla chips, guacamole and the mango-chilli-lime salsa. Our waitress mentioned the salsa had a kick but it appeared the kitchen forgot to add the chilli & lime - it was very bland. We ordered the house red and white wines and they were out of stock of the red which was disappointing. We shared the Mixed Botanas Platter for starters which was delicious and included more than listed on the menu. We opted for the delux taco platter, burito mjuado, enchaladas and the quesadilla for mains - all were average, well presented a but dull in flavour. Our bill came to €159. I'm not sure I'd return.
Henry Street, Limerick City, Limerick
Great value early bird at €25 with plenty of choices. The chicken satay and duck spring rolls were tasty. We had two good sized sirloin steaks which come with one side order - sauces are an extra €2. A very small banoffee and cheesecake rounded off the meal. With two glasses of wine the bill came to €70. The complimentary still and sparkling water is a nice touch.
The Counter Dundrum
Pembroke District, (adjacent to the Mill Pond at Town Square), Dundrum, Dublin
Not as good as our first visit in January. While the service has improved (we waited almost an hour for our order previously) the burger patty was bone dry - if it wasn't for the toppings I might have thought I was eating sawdust. They also appeared to be low on stock of cold bottled beers, we were asked to wait while they chilled some down in the freezer! I like the concept but €9.95 for a dry, flavorless burger is a disappointing - in fact it smacked of pre-cooking and reheating.
ely gastro bar
Grand Canal Square, (Next to the Bord Gais Energy Theatre), Dublin 2, Grand Canal Dock, Dublin
Stopped in for dinner en route to the O2 yesterday evening. Service was attentive but the food wasn't great. We shared fish cakes to start which were average and lacked seasoning. I ordered crispy pork belly for mains and crispy it wasn't...very disappointing and again underseasoned. Also, the square plate it was served on was chipped on all four corners, quite shabby. My partner had the pie and mash option which was average if a bit on the small side. The chocolate desert was the highlight of the meal.
The River Restaurant @ Hilton Hotel - Old
Hilton Hotel Ennis Road, Limerick City, Limerick
I agree with previous posters. Food is average. Service isn't great and its expensive for what you get (small portions).
La Mere Zou
22 St Stephens Green, Dublin , City Centre South, Dublin
Four of us had an excellent meal her last week. The food was first class, particularly the french onion soup and the smoked mackerel starter. The turbot main course was the overall winner, perfectly cooked fish with a delicious risotto and vanilla foam. We skipped desert in favour of the cheese board which was sublime. The service was good too.
Milano (Dun Laoghaire)
1 Harbour Square, Crofton Road, South Co. Dublin, Dun Laoghaire, Dublin
Tasty food but awful service. We were seated immediately in a half full Milanos yesterday evening at 7pm. We waited 50 mins for our starter which was followed IMMEDIATELY by our pizzas. We were in full view of the kitchen which was clearly under pressure. Confusion reigned. There were complaints from many tables. The couple beside us were charged for our drinks. Another couple were seated at a dirty table for 20 mins before it was cleaned. The food was good but certainly not worth the wait. Next time we will go elsewhere.
Oliveto Restaurant & Bar
Oliveto At The Haddington, 9-12 Haddington Terrace, Co. Dublin, Dun Laoghaire, Dublin
I made a reservation via menupages for 7pm...at 7:30 we were still still waiting for a table. Having said that we were offered complimentary drinks while we waited. Starters are a little on the bland side. The tomatos on the bruschetta were wooly and flavourless and the crostini was dull and needed seasoning or a drizzle of good olive oil. The pizzas are delicious though, authentic thin and crispy bases and great toppings.
Steamboat Quay, Limerick City, Limerick
What a find! The French Table is well worth a visit for quality and price. We munched happily on some delicious bread and homemade crisps while we browsed the menu. Starters of prawns and Toulouse sausage were very good. The special that evening was pithivier limousin (a meat pie) and was professed the best pie ever by my husband. I had the trio of fish (sea bass, monkfish and lemon sole) which was perfectly cooked with a delicious buttery sauce. Sides of new potatoes and veg were included in the price of the mains. For desert we had pear and almond tart and chocolate mousse, both outstanding. Excellent value at €101 including a bottle of Riesling. We'll be returning on our next vist to Limerick.
Butterfield Avenue, Rathfarnham Village, Rathfarnham, Dublin
Good local indian restaurant. We had a gift voucher and choose from the a la carte menu. The Mackerel and meat samosa to start were tasty. Prawn buna and lamb balti were average. Our rice was served from the buffet - one spoon each. I thought this was a bit cheap considering you are charged indivudally for it. The freshly baked naan bread is delicious. The buffet option was most popular and at €25 pp its good value.
Powerscourt Hotel Restaurant & Spa, Powerscourt, Wicklow
1st class service and food but no atmosphere. It was a Friday night and there were only 12 other guests, music was low, you could have heard a pin drop. However, the food was exceptional. King crab was moist and flavoursome and the lobster ravoli was excellent. John Dory and Monkfist were perfectly cooked and the accompanying veg were delicious. The cheesy potato was tasty but the consistency was very strange. We had a Chablis for €55. Deserts were lovely too (cheesecake and pear william) and the pre-desert a very clever take on carrot cake. The petit fours were devine. Overall our meal came to €250.00.
Unit 11/18 Belgard Square, Tallaght Town Centre, West Dublin, Tallaght, Dublin
Overall the food was good and the price reasonable but the service was too quick. We had only just finished our starters when our main course arrived. As noted by others the portions are huge, 4 thai fish cakes is a lot as a starter. Desserts are poor.
Tinakilly Country House Hotel & Restaurant, Rathnew, Rathnew, Wicklow
Excellent venue for Mother's Day lunch. Set lunch was €35 with 4 choices for starter and main course. We had soup and greek salad which were very tasty; followed by chicken breast and roast leg of lamb. The lamb was excellent, slightly pink and very tender. The accompaning veg were perfectly cooked too. Deserts were beautifully presented and our plates returned to the kitchen clean! The service was very attentive. The only negative is the restaurant is quite dark.
1 Harbour Road, South Co. Dublin, Dun Laoghaire, Dublin
We had no reservation for sunday lunch on 20th December but got a seat in the bar area. It was a bit expensive for Sunday lunch for 2 @ €50.00 (rib eye & fish and chips + 2 soft drinks). Food was delicious though. We'll go back to try the evening menu.
26-28 Clarendon Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
Saba was packed on Friday night, great festive atmosphere. We were a group of 6 and were seated promptly at 9:30. I would agree with the previous poster that the service is a bit rushed but put it down to the festive season. The food was excellent: the softshell crab and squid were the best starters at our table. Mains were good too with plenty of rice to share. We passed on dessert in favour of cocktails. The xmas pudding was disappointing - all we could taste was cinnamon but the cheesecake was delicious and the mojitos went down well too!
Scent Garden Restaurant
1st Floor Scholars Pub, Ballycullen Road, Tallaght, Tallaght, Dublin
My husband and I dropped in here for dinner on our way home from work last Tuesday at around 6:30. We were the only diners so the service was very attentive! We ordered from the daily special set menu @ €25 which is good value. There are a good range of starter and main course choices and the food is a good standard. Worth a visit on week night.
Dundrum Town Centre, Dublin 14, Dundrum, Dublin
Ananda continue to provide excellent food and first class service. This was our third visit and from starter to desert we were very impressed. The lamb Rogan Josh was metingly tender and well spiced and the prawn jalfrezi delicious with prefectly cooked prawns. Each dish is beautifuly presented and the sides are keenly priced. We also had two excellent cocktails at the bar.
Peploes Wine Bistro
16 St Stephen's Green, Dublin , City Centre South, Dublin
Had dinner here last Thursday with 6 friends. The place was packed. We sat down at about 9:30 after a drink at the bar. We couldn't fault the food, the duck was exceptional. Worth a visit.
Eatzen Chinese Restaurant
Unit 1, Clonee Village CentreMain Street, Clonee, Clonee, Dublin
The food was tasty but on the expensive side for quick bite with friends...and it was pracitcally empty on a Thursday night
49-50 Thomas Street, Limerick City, Limerick
We booked this restaurant based on reviews read here and were'nt disappointed. Four of us shared two delicious starters of chicken wings and some very tasty bread and dips followed by the special T-bone steak x 2, 10oz fillet and a surf and turf 8oz ribeye and two juicy king prawns. The bill came to a surprisingly low €130. The service was excellent and they've a nice and reasonably priced wine list. Worth a try.
Mao Restaurant (Dun Laoghaire)
The Pavillion, South Co, Dublin, Dun Laoghaire, Dublin
We haven't been here in quite a while and love the bright new decor! Service was attentive and prompt and there was a good buzz with plenty of other diners about. We had the black pepper wings and chilli squid to start. Both were good but the squid was on the chewy side. Nasi Goreng and Hong Kong chicken for main course and both were delicious.
Church Road, Greystones, Wicklow
Worth a detour off the N11. My husband had the full breakfast and I had poached eggs....absolutely delicious. The porridge with bananas and baileys looked yummy as did the french toast - I'll be back to try them! The only downside is the restaurant is a bit small....but its worth waiting for a table.
Harrys Cafe Bar
21 Upper George's Street, Dun Laoghaire, Dublin
We stopped here for lunch today after a blustery walk on the pier. I had a delicious thai chicken noodle soup with homemade brown bread and my husband had a an excellent bacon sandwich. The service was great and the food very tasty. Our bill came to €15 including a coffee. I think we'll go back to try the breakfast menu.
Meeting House Square, Temple Bar, Dublin
Had a lovely meal here last Friday. The only downside was our table was right at the door to the patio area and there was a cold breeze all evening. We did ask if the door could be closed and eventually it was - but we were almost finished our mains! Apart from this hicup the service was attentive and the food excellent. I had the smokies which were delicious followed by the scallops with chorizo and minted risotto. The chorizo had been replaced with pancetta which was a little disappointing. My friend had the crab salad with beetroot followed by the duck which were both very tasty. The desserts deserve full marks expecailly the apple and cherry crumble with apple beignet and caramel icecream. With a bottle of sancerre and two coffes the bill came to €133 - very reasonable.
Elephant & Castle
18/19 Temple Bar, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
Stopped here for a late lunch on Friday afternoon with a friend. We had to wait about 10 mins for a table which was fine. The Crispy chicken salad with endive and stilton was delicious and v. generous. My friend had the Green n' Gold omlete which she pronounced the best omlete ever. 30.25 with tea, coffee and cherry soda.
Mao Restaurant (Dundrum)
Dundrum Town Centre, Dublin 14, Dundrum, Dublin
We dropped in here for a quick bite on Monday 18th Feb. We shared the duck wontons which were delicious. I had the nasi goreng which had huge juicy prawns and tasty chicken topped with the perfect soft fried egg. The accompanying chicken satay was a bit tough though. My husband was very impressed with the fragrant and zingy chilli lime beef. With 3 bottles of Mao beer and a sparkling water the bill came to €54.00. Great place to eat before the cinema or after shopping.
FIRE Restaurant and Lounge
Mansion House, Dawson Street, Dublin 2, Dawson Street, Dublin
We had our Christmas Party at Fire on 21 December and had a fantastic evening. The staff were excellent, the food was to die for (the lamb kebabs were delicious) and the price was very reasonable. Definitely a restaurant I'll try again.
Chatham Street, City Centre South, Dublin
Great food. We had an early evening dinner here on Saturday. The spicy chicken wings w/blue cheese dressing are delicious and very spicy and there are plenty to share. For mains we had pork shank, which my sister declared the best ever, moroccan couscous with chicken and Asian soba noodles with mushrooms and prawns. All the plates were cleared. The cheese board is excellent too.
109a Lower Baggot Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
My husband and I received a voucher for €300 which covered our meal for 2 at L'Ecrivan. We couldn't fault the delicious food, the presentation or the wonderful service. 10 out of 10. The sommelier recommended a lovely Spanish red which was just right for our tastes. We would definitely recommend L’Ecrivan for a special occasion.
Church st, Wicklow Town, Wicklow Town, Wicklow
We had the pleasure of eating at the Bakery recently while visiting family in Wicklow. We found the prices very reasonable - €38 for two courses and we were impressed with the complimentary glass of champers & bottle of mineral water (something I haven't experienced in Dublin). All in all it was a lovely evening in a very stylish restaurant (love the exposed stone walls) – the food was tasty and well presented. We couldn't fault the service either. I'm looking forward to the jumbo prawns on our next visit!
137 Rathmines Road, Dublin 6 , South Dublin, Rathmines, Dublin
We dropped in to Jo'Burger for lunch last Wednesday at around 2pm and were we impressed. It has a funky decor and great 90's music (just a bit too loud for having a chat tho). Great idea putting the menu in the comic books. There is a good choice of organic burgers. We chose the plain lamb burger and a Mofolo - they were cooked to perfection with generous tasty burger buns and fresh as you like lettuce & tomato. The side of bush fries was tasty and the sweet potato chips were delicious but they could have been cut a bit larger. The bill was E33 including a mineral water and juice. Looking forward to eating there again.
The Real Gourmet Burger - Dun Laoghaire
The Pavilion, South Dublin, Dun Laoghaire, Dublin
My husband and nephew and I ate here yesterday evening. We were seated straight away, which was great. The food was top notch, particularly the rosemary chunky chips. I had ordered the Blue Cheese burger, which had lost the “blue” on route to the kitchen but this, was rectified in less than 5 mins. The bill was €46 for 3 burgers, 2 chips, 2 sprite, 1 large mineral water, 1 coffee and 1 ice-cream - great value and tasty food.
