Once again Dada made me a very happy customer. Very pleasant and friendly stuff, great service on the phone and in person. my meal was as tasty as I expected. Had lamb tagine with apricots and walnuts, very tender meat in nicely flavoured sauce, was very happy with my choice. Dessert was amazing, apple and banana fritters with cinnamon and vanilla ice cream, it's a warm dessert which beautifully combines the flavours of apples and banana and goes well with vanilla ice cream. Highly recommended :)

I keep coming here simply because the food is really good but the service is such a disappointment every time. Quick meet up with a friend, we used the offer from Priority Moments buy one get one free, this shouldn't be a reason to be treated like any less of a valued customer. As I paid the bill, there was no return of change until I reminded them about it. There wasn't much money left and was gonna leave it as a tip anyway but it was rude of them to just assume that and not bring my change back.

Milano (Clarion Quay)
Unit 6, Excise Walk, Clarion Quay, Dublin 1, City Centre, IFSC, Dublin

You always know what to expect from Milano, no matter where you go and they sure know how to pick their locations. However, this time it was more special, thanks to a very friendly waitress, good service always makes the difference. The food was lovely as usual and it was also served quickly. All good things put together, made it a great dining experience.

La Boheme
2 George Street, Waterford City, Waterford

This place is amazing and certainly deserves all its awards! From the moment you walk in, you can feel the French atmosphere. Excellent service without a doubt, welcoming and charming staff. The food was divine, one of the best monk fish dished I've ever had. If you're looking for a romantic dinner, then this is it, there's no better place.

Geoffs Cafe Bar
8/9 Johns Street , Please call us directly for Bookings 051-874787, Waterford City, Waterford

Very cozy place with relaxed atmosphere, one of the most popular spots in Waterford City Centre. Not a massive choice of desserts but if you're there, treat yourself with warm chocolate pudding, it's delicious and such good value! Friendly staff are a big bonus

The Grand Central Cafe Bar
O'Connell Street, O'Connell St, Dublin

I like this place a lot either for drinks or food, come here quite often. Great atmosphere, beautiful architectural building deserves some appreciation, conveniently located on O'Connell Street, easy to find and get to. Last time I ordered A fresh salmon fillet with a sesame seed crust, oven baked and served on a bed of creamed potatoes and oyster stir fried vegetables topped with a garlic and caper butter. Massive portion size, more than I could eat, was delicious! Although I was already stuffed, couldn't say no to a dessert, chocolate cake always a good choice :)

Bar Italia
26 Blooms Lane , Lower Ormond Quay, City Centre North, Italian Quarter, Dublin

Went there for early lunch and was looking for something rather light, thought vegetarian dish La Parmigiana would be a good choice. The description of delicate layers of aubergine, mozzarella and tomato sounded great to me. My mistake for not asking more details about it as it came all baked together looking like a lasagna, didn't see any delicate layers there. It was still good but not what I hoped for. All in all it's a nice place and have tried other dishes there before, always good. It's also quite popular so if planning a dinner around weekend, make sure to book a table.

Lemon Jelly Cafe
Millennium Walkway, Jervis Street, Italian Quarter, Dublin

Very cool place for a nice meet up with friends and a quick bite to eat or a glass of wine. Nice and relaxed atmosphere, tasty food if not a bit too pricey. Got to select our own stuffing for crepes, quite a healthy option which made me very happy and gluten free option is also available.

Carluccio's Caffe
52 Dawson Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin

Lovely and bright, always a good treat on a Sunday afternoon or any other day. Not a romantic set-up but food is great and there's such friendly staff. Was starving by the time I got there, ordered Saltimbocca Di Pollo and was very happy with my choice. Portion size way bigger then expected, left me with absolutely stuffed yet happy belly, no room for desert though.

Dada Restaurant
45 South William Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Loved everything about it! This stylish Moroccan place creates such unique atmosphere, staff very kind and welcoming, divine food. Ordered monkfish with saffron, walnuts, roasted potatoes, the combination of flavours was ecstatic, what a treat :) Selection of traditional pastries was a bit too much after the main course but tasty indeed, that is if one likes spiced pastries, so different from the usual sugary desserts. Highly recommend it and surely will be back there soon :)

Wagamama - Stephen's Green
St Stephen's Green Centre, South King St, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

If you're looking for a place just to get a meal without over paying then don't look any further. The food is great but the place itself lacks atmosphere, very bright, long benches along the big tables make you feel like you're in a big diner at a camp. There's always a long line of people waiting for a table, you get to look at the menu while you're waiting. It's in and out sort of a place, quick service. Last time my friend and I had duck noodles - delicious, although we ordered the same, it didn't arrive at the same time, can be annoying sometimes. I always enjoy the food here but don't come too often because of the sitting conditions, it doesn't make it an enjoyable dining out experience.

Rock Lobster (Inactive)
Above Kiely’s Pub, 22-24 Donnybrook Rd, Donnybrook, Dublin

My first experience eating lobster, the staff members called me a lobster virgin! I had a voucher close to its expiry date so I finally booked my lobster dinner. Despite negative reviews I've read about this place I had a very positive experience starting with a warm welcome by the staff. They were kind and cheerful, very upbeat service, maybe it was the excitement of explaining how to eat a lobster to a first timer :) The lobster was tasty, came with a salad (good) and chips (rather bad). Pecan pie for dessert yummm. It was only at the restaurant when I realized they offer a better deal there: 3 course dinner for 2 with a bottle of wine for 60E. My voucher only paid for 2 lobsters (30E), desserts and 2 glasses of wine came at extra 30E, total 60E excluding starters. Despite what the voucher said that the value of 2 lobster was 60E, in fact it was only 40E (I paid 30E) not a great deal after all. Overall I enjoyed my dinner and had a pleasant evening there.

Lemon (South William St)
66 South William St, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Addicted to crepes! Whether you're looking for something sweet or more satisfying, this place is for everyone. I certainly get excited every time I eat there, it's soooo good :) I normally go for sweet crepes, there's so many options to choose from, it makes me want to get more than just one. This time decided to have savoury crepe for lunch, luckily got there early enough as this place is always packed. Cherished every bite of my vegetarian crepe. The staff are always very nice and smiley providing great service. The place itself looks awful, obviously the visual aspect doesn't mean much as everything else is top class.

Kinara Restaurant
318 Clontarf Road, North Co. Dublin , Clontarf, Dublin

High class restaurant, beautiful interiors, food to die for! I was very impressed with this place, great intimate atmosphere for a romantic dinner. Everything from starters, main course to desserts was absolutely on the money and it is rather expensive there but so worth it.

The Lotts Cafe Bar
9 Lower Liffey Street, City Centre North, Dublin

This place is still unknown to many yet it's such a great place...but don't think you will find it empty, not at all. Those who had been there, know very well it can be absolutely packed so if you plan on eating in the Lotts get there early enough. Love the atmosphere, food is very good at low prices. Steak on the stone is highly recommended, also salmon was divine and they offer gluten-free menu which makes this place even more attractive. Desserts? Yes, absolutely go for it :)

Queen of Tarts (Temple Bar)
3 - 4 Cow's Lane, Temple Bar, Dublin

Love this place, can't get enough of all the cakes especially queen of chocolate fudge cake, tastes like heaven! I think I've tried most of the cakes and tarts there, all delicious but I was slightly disappointed with baileys cheescake, it tasted great but it's just wasn't what I expected as it's one of my favourite cakes, tasted it in so many different places and this one was far from what I know it should taste like. It's a lovely place and highly popular, sometimes it's hard to get a table there on a sunny afternoon. Friendly and welcoming staff.

Jewel in the Crown (South William Street)
5 South William Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

The best Indian food ever. The first time I went there was a few years ago, loved it since then. Last week wasn't any different, the food there is always top quality, truly authentic flavors, staff very kind. It used to be much more pricey, now it's very affordable. I will keep coming back for more :)

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

My friends and I had vouchers from DealRush and I was positively surprised. Nice and quiet restaurant in Temple Bar, food was absolutely great, friendly staff but I wouldn't say they were highly trained in service, nice atmosphere, also like the decor there especially the tiny fish tanks fitted into the tables. The portion size of the food exceeded my expectations, the same with wine. I've noticed, many restaurants downsize the portions when they offer those special deals but in La Caverna you can definitely fill up your stomach with just one course.I had Gamberi di Tigre Nera with tagliatele, loved it. Friends had Amatriciana, Menzi and Tortellini, had a taste of them, all great! Next time I might go for Amatriciana :) Although we were stuffed after the meal, we couldn't resist tasting the deserts and it was worth it. Tiramisu was just right, not overly moist and baileys cheesecake was also tasty but I forgot to mention to the waitress whether I wanted it with ice-cream or whipped cream as there was a choice, got it with cream to my disappointment, pity she didn't ask me in advance. Overall I liked it there and will come back to try other dishes.

Wallace's Taverna
24 Lower Ormond Quay, Dublin 1, City Centre, Italian Quarter, Dublin

I pass this place quite often and it's always busy, only shows how popular it is and there's a reason for it. We went there for the first time a weeks back but sadly couldn't get a table as it was fully booked. This time I booked early and I have to say it's a lovely restaurant with very tasty & inexpensive food at a convenient location just on the quay. The service was excellent, very friendly and helpful staff. Definitely going to eat there again!
