Locks 1 Windsor Terrace
1 Windsor Terrace, Portobello, City Centre South, Dublin

It was my first time in Locks under the newest management and a very pleasant one it was indeed! I attended with a large party for an early bird dinner. The food was interesting, tasty, plentiful, presented with flair. We were served with smiles and bonhomie and all of that for €30 for three courses + wine. Fabulous value for money , I will be back!

Kostas Greek Restaurant
69 Dame Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Fantastic food, it has been a long time since I tasted such fabulously grilled succulent chicken and lamb. My friend and I shared a Beirut Express set menu and everything was really good. Service--they forgot to bring us the bread we ordered, but apologised with a free coffee and baklawa, so can't fault them. Definitely coming back.

El Toro Bravo
27 South Richmond Street, Portobello, Dublin

Very good food, good value, nice place, flamenco played in the corner, but service a bit on the choppy side. Still, I'll go back, food is worth it.

Rotana Cafe Restaurant
31 South Richmond Street, Dublin 2, Portobello, Dublin

Rotana is my favourite little place: whether you want an excellent Lebanese meal washed down with proper mint tea or you're mad for baklava or you want to relax with thick Lebanese coffee and some shisha on the street terrace, watching the world go by, you will thoroughly enjoy yourself. The food is excellent and good value for money, you can bring your own wine and they don't charge corkage--all in all, a very pleasant place that I keep bringing different sets of friends too and everyone is thoroughly bewitched. Go, you'll love it.

Locks Brasserie
No. 1 Windsor Terrace, South Dublin, Portobello, Dublin

I was curious to see how was the new Locks, reopened as a brasserie. I heard great reviews about their Early Bird dinners so decided to meet a friend there for brunch on Sunday. It ended up being a full Christmas lunch as there is no brunch menu on at the moment but, Jesus, Mary and Joseph, was the food fantastic! Duck liver pate for me and butternut squash risotto for her for starters, then pheasant and beef, finished off with a fabulous creme brulee. The price was a tad high, coming up to €86 in total with two glasses of wine and coffee, but it was delicious food and, on balance, worth it. If the brunch menu with more competitive prices was on, I would definitely be back more often. The view was great with the canal in snow, the music well chosen, the manager attentive. Definitely coming back. The sooner, the better.

Chez Max (Palace Street)
1 Palace Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

My friends and me were seated at the back terrace on a Friday night in July and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Yes, the whole restaurant is cramped and there isn't much space to move but the food was divine - onion soup to start with and then duck confit for me, lamb and fish for my friends - bar for the desert, a strawberry tart which was a very much run-of-the-mill afair. However, at that point we were so pleasantly full that it did not make much difference and besides, my friend's creme brulee was great so we gorged on that. Accompanied by fine desert wine, we could not have asked for more. Great value for the quality, too. Definitely coming again...

Seagrass of Portobello Bridge
30 South Richmond Street, Dublin 8, Portobello, Dublin

As I live around the corner, I popped in for a dinner last night with my neighbour and what a jewel Seagrass has proven to be! We sat in the front and did some great people watching. The bread was excellent and came with the best pesto I ate in a restaurant in a long time. For starters, I had a roast pepper soup, lovely and hearty. For main meal, my friend had a seabass and she liked it a lot and my chicken wrapped around a sausage was excellent! Portions are more than abundant and service was great. I really like the fact they brought the bread and pesto for a friend who just joined us for a glass of wine. Great value, too! One starter, two main courses, a side dish, two caraffs of a very good Semillon for 77 euros! Well worth a repeat visit.

Lennox Cafe and Bistro
31 Lennox Street, City Centre South, Dublin

As I live in Portobello, I have eaten at Lennox Caffe a lot of times. The food was always fabulous: whether it is hamburger with home made chips, salmon salad, glorious quesadillas, fish and chips, mixed leave salads or one of the gorgeous cakes - name it. Service is fantastic: yesterday I was in the mood for a fruit salad after lunch. They didn't have it on the menu but in two minutes it was on my plate and it was perfect. Espresso is great and worthy of Italy. Good value for money altogether. And you can enjoy the Irish summer wrapped in a fun leopard-patterned quilt on the terrace - funky and useful in cold climates. Meet you on the terrace to watch the passing of seasons..

Chez Max (Baggot Street)
133 Lower Baggot Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin

What a pleasant Saturday lunch with a friend. Now, there was a problem finding the place even if I knew exactly where I was going. Bar for a small black board, there is nothing indicating there is a gastronomic haven in that Baggot Street basement. Possibly better posting might help... Anyhow, I was remotely controlled by my friend and arrived in. Nice atmosphere, surprisingly light. Decent Kir for aperitiff. Starter: roast quail, nothing short of wonderful. Thanks be to God it is allowed to eat birds with fingers... Main: smoked chicken salad with almonds, caramelised pears and gorgonzola mayonnaise - I was enthralled by this combination of tastes so much so I had to try some version of it at home the very next week! We shared a perfect apple tart, coffee was good, the sun was shining, the white we chose by glass was perfect and we didn't break the bank: 60 euros in total. Definitely coming back.

Il Segreto
13a/b Merrion Row, City Centre South, Dublin

Il segreto won't definitely be a secret for a long time! Lovely decor, simple yet warm. We started off at the bar waiting for the rest of the party: yesterday's special was strawberry and martini cocktail, excellent. As this was a business dinner, we had a set menu but what a feast nonetheless! Ravioli di magro filled with artichokes to begin with were very good but the main course threw me off my feet: spatchcocked poussin with caponata and polenta fritta. I don't know what they did to that bird but it was sheer magic. The pear in sambuca was a perfect way to finish it off. And it was great value for money too. All in all, I'll be back soon.

Toffoli
34 Castle Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

This is the best pizza in Dublin! I recently discovered it when walking with my children from Dame Street and what a discovery it was! Fine, thin, crusty base, fantastic toppings, absolute joy! And, while waiting, I stocked on some fantastic Sardinian wine and excellent prosciutto and salami at less-than-supermarket prices. Excellent place, well worth a visit.

Ciao Bella Roma
24/25 Parliament Street, Dublin 2, City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin

First I heard about this place was from expat Sicilian. The verdict: the only good pizza outside of Italy, feels like home. Enough for me. Brought a 9th birthday party there, great pizza, margherita and funghi we tried, superb, crispy real thin pizza pastry. Diavola not so good, did not like salami they used. Too bad they do not do home deliveries, but ordering and picking up is worth it.

Darwins
80 Aungier Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

My favourite restaurant in the whole of Dublin. There isn't a course I have not tried in the last 3 years. Favourite? Duck with red cabbage in orange sauce. Melting in the mouth. Nobody knows how to make duck like the Darwin's chef. I got to know the waiters over the years. Laurent picks the wines honestly. On my first visit there he actually recommended a cheaper one than the one I initially picked, as it would not have complimented the food as well. Needless to say, his choice was superb. All in all - highly recommendable.
