Reviewed 08th February 2014 ( visited 24th January 2014 )

Visited this restaurant a few years ago wasn't overly impressed then and sad to say my opinion hasn't changed much. Not many customers in for friday night, so wasn't much of an atmosphere. Had main course of fish (sea bass) which was very over cooked and potatoes served with it were very undercooked. It was very disappointing. Service was good though and staff were friendly however I was very disappointed with food, a revisit is very unlikely.

Soulful Bistro
46 Manor Street, North Dublin , Stoneybatter, Dublin

First time visiting soulful was tonight and i loved it, lovely warm atmosphere, friendly staff, food was delicious, goats cheese for starters, followed by the steak, husband had the chowder for starters followed by chicken very reasonably priced and portion sizes perfect. Service was a little slow only two staff on the floor to a nearly fully occupied restaurant, first choice wine not available and we waited a while between starters and main, but we enjoyed our meal and food was gorgeous, we will definitely visit again.

Hush Brasserie
12A New Street Malahide, Malahide, Dublin

Visited Hush last Thursday evening with a friend. There were lots of people dining here and it looked very welcoming from the outside.The interior is very stylishly decorated and cosy.We were seated at a biggish round table beside a party of three men, the tables were so close together I felt we couldn't have a private conversation, I could hear everything that they were saying and them us, so I did feel a little uncomfortable. For starters my friend had the mushroom risotto and I had goats cheese both tasted quite nice and portion sizes as a starter were fine. For mains we I had monk fish and my friend had burger and chips. The monk fish (came with 1 baby corn and 1 baby carrot) was delicious but you would need to have ordered a side order too as I felt the size of the mains was quiet small. A criticism I would have was was there wasn't enough choice for me on the menu

Washerwomans Hill
60 Glasnevin Hill, Glasnevin, Glasnevin, Dublin

Last review given I said we would return Very Very soon and we did the following Wednesday! and was not disappointed. Again popped down with two friends and we all cleared our plates (expect for dessert, and only because the belly just wouldn't allow it!). Two of us had the bbq chicken wings for starters which were lovely, if I had one criticism, it would be where was our finger rinse?? our two other guests opted for the garlic roast mushroom with pepperonata and salad of new season potato & crisp bacon both of the licked the plates clean (not literally but you know what I mean :)). For the mains I had the yogurt marinated chicken fillet ( had a kind of curry taste )with cous cous which was very satisfying. Two of the guests ordered gourmet steak burger which was HUGE. On my recommendation my friend opted for the salmon fillet with wild rice and she raved about it (phew!). All in all we found the washerwomans a great place to dine, It was nice to see that it is family friendly. There was a family dining beside us and while they raised the volume (just a little ;) ) it was great to see!

Captain America's Cookhouse and Bar (Tallaght)
Unit A3 Tallaght Cross Dublin 24, Tallaght, Dublin

Just come back from a bite to eat here. Thought this was a safe bet, for a quick bite with friends. OMG what a disaster, the food was just awful! I ordered fish and chips (haddock in batter) the food arrived on the table approx 4 mins after we had ordered it, so either the kitchen knew what we wanted before we did or there was a lot of reheating going on. The portions where huge but awful, the batter tasted like it was deep fried, and again and again and then reheated barely edible. and really super greasy. Fish didn't even taste like fish.There was a portion of mushy peas given which I genuinely didn't know what they were thought it was guacamole. I left almost all of the food, with the exception of the bite of fish I had and none of us finished our meals. As I was brought up just to say thanks, didn't say anything but the waiter took back practically three full meals without batting an eye. So disappointing feel I was robbed :(

La Caverna Restaurant & Wine Bar
12 Fownes Street, Dublin 2, City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin

Having ate here a few times we decided to revisit. We ordered Mussles in a white wine sauce and Potato skins for starters. Both very tasty. For main course I had the seafood symphony and other half had lamb cutlets, both nice not fantastic. A big draback for us was that we were left waiting ages to order and at least 1/2 hour between starters and mains as they had a large party to cater for upstairs. The choice of food we choose was typically a more expensive option and for the two courses and a bottle of house red it was €92.

Slevin's Pub
Main Street, Dunboyne, Meath

Ok, so it's carvery and it was just ok. Roast beef was one dinner and salmon and veg the other.Two dinners without drinks cost €25 which I thought was a bit on the dear size especially as the food was mediocre, atmosphere wasn't great where we ate and was quite uninviting.The pub part for drinking purposes on the other hand was great, watched the match and had a laugh but unlikely that I would eat here again.

Da Panza Restaurant
1 Yeats Centre, Dunboyne, Meath

Well what can I say about this little Italian? one word FABULOUS. Visited here last night Sunday, not familiar with the area stayed just one night and didn't fancy eating at the hotel. Arrived at 8 o'clock greeted by the owner (i think), we were the only ones there and thought god is it bad but low and behold it is probably the nicest restaurant I have visited this year. Really soft background music, very romantic which is what we wanted. We both had crab claws for starters with were beautiful, followed by my main course of seabass again cooked to perfection. Other half had fettuccine alamare, tomato based with mussels, calamari and prawns (family recipe). Through the course of the meal, other diners arrived, really impressed. The only downside was been the only diners for the first 1/2 hour, was a bit unusual, but I'm glad we stayed and recommend this place highly.

The Woolshed Baa & Grill
Parnell Street, The junction of Jervis street and Parnell street., City Centre North, Dublin

First time visitor to this pub, just went in for a lunch and with the world cup on catch a match too, lunch of soup and sandwich. Had tomoato soup for starters not overly keen, tasted more like soup from a can than something made in house, but the mains more than made up for it. Sandwich was very tasty and the very good value for money. The kiddies meal of chips and sausages was huge. They also have a loyality card and you get a stamp for every €5 spent on food, total of 9 stamps required for money off voucher. Big screens were very impressive and will give this pub another visit on a Monday night soon, which is comedy night.

Cafe en Seine
39 Dawson Street, Dublin 2, Dawson Street, Dublin

Visited here today for lunch with €15 meal voucher. I was very dissapointed. The lunch choice was very limited. The portion sizes on lunch were tiny and really felt that it was very poor value for money. I have visited here on a night out and it was great, they just don't seem to cut it with the lunch food won't be visiting for food again.

The Gin Palace
Middle Abbey Street, City Centre North, Dublin

Visited here today and don't think I will be visiting again in a hurry, Got special chicken skewers, with rice, tasted like the whole lunch was a reheat, rice had to be cut with a knife and fork couldn't eat it, chicken (which was slightly burned) was like rubber and side salad was nothing to write home about. Kids meal very limited choice. We chose a plain pasta and it was just alright. I know it is only pub grub, but surely it should be at least edible?

The Porterhouse (North )
Cross Guns Bridge, Glasnevin, Dublin

Popped in for a quick lunch with the kids. The place was empty so although the atmosphere was score I gave was quite low, it may be because this isn't their main trade times. Service was very quick but be warned the portion sizes are HUGE which meant a lot a waste. We did ask before we ordered if they were big / small portions, when the food arrived there was just too much. Chicken wings (salt and chilli) with chips (would do two ppl) went down well, while I opted for the fish and chips portion was huge. Fish was very greasy so couldn't eat much of it so I was dissapointed. Kids meals were well priced but huge. Service was very fast and home brewed beers are lovely, very refreshing on a hot summers day.

Cactus Jacks (Middle Abbey St)
Millennium Walkway, Middle Abbey Street, City Centre North, Italian Quarter, Dublin

Second vist here and won't be the last, very impressed and good value for money. We went for the 3 course for €19.95 and were delighted to see the offered under 12's eat free. Starters we ordered calamari, and chilli cheese nachos, followed by a main course of latino burger with chorizo and a variety of sauces and chicken faijits. The kids had cocktail sausages, fries, peas ??????? I know odd choice but that our little ones for you! Good portion sizes and great atmosphere, family friendly place. Would highly recommend.

The Kings Head
15 High Street, Galway City, Galway

Visited here on Sunday, had the Tapas for 2, with 2 pints of your choice only €20. Food was good really nice atmosphere, went back for the music session later on. They are also doing deals with the restaurant next door, if you're looking for something more than pub grub. Really nice treat.

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

Have visited this restuarant on a few occasions in the past and was happy to book a table here with a friend who hadn't been here before. We were given the menu and not made aware of any of the special offers. Starters were small prawn skewers and prawn toast which is ok, starters shouldn't be too big and main course was well proportioned and we ordered a glass of wine each. At the end of the night we asked for the bill, the waiter asked if we had the €19.95 3 course meal, we said we hadn't been shown that offered, and he said he would check for us............ he never returned, went up to pay the bill and the girl on the till didn't even look at us rang up the bill which came to €63 - two courses and two glasses of wine on a Thursday night. I was very dissapointed in the service here and I'm not sure if I would return in a hurry.

Da Neros Trattoria
Seamus Ennis Road (Above Xtra Vision) , North Dublin, Dublin 11, Finglas, Dublin

Visited this restaurant a couple of weeks ago. We hadn't got a table booked, but they accommodated us anyway. I wasn't overly impressed with the food. Had bruschetta for starters and it was just ok. Penne Pasta for main course, this was very bland. It's early days for this restaurant, may give it a second chance but it would only average at the moment
