love the food but every time I go there's a very long wait for a table even though I've booked and more than once they've given away the booth I had booked the staff are nice but they seem a bit short handed as everything takes ages but there maple walnut pizza is to die for an ALL the desserts are amazing! if not a little pricy but well worth it!

I used to love this place but my last experience will make me never go back again.... We went here for an offer "half price off all food" as was advertised on their Facebook page i asked did that include ice cream and was assured it did so off we went for lunch we bought a pizza each and starters is wasn't very good at all and we didn't finish either pizza. We were told they had no rocket and no Chorizo (even though the next couple in ordered the same pizza as me and got it) the place was empty except for ourselves and one other couple and they sat them right beside us it was very awkward when we finished our meal we ordered lots of ice-cream not dessert as they weren't included in the deal but when we got our bill all the ice cream was full price and when i pointed it out (apologetically) the waiter started shouting at me that ice cream wasn't in the deal so i demanded to see a more senior member of staff and used my phone to show the public Facebook comment saying it was included in the deal. They said fine that this was the last time i was getting anything half price it was horrifying and i was very angry i had more than enough to pay twice that price but after how they fought with me i wouldn't give them a cent more than i had too completely disgusted even remembering that.

Tropica
3c Castle Street, South Dublin, Dalkey, Dublin

value amazing 14.80 plus 10% service charge for all you can eat Japanese Chinese and Thai food! the staff were amazing and the food was lovely we even decided to try the spicy tuna rolls which were too spicy for us but they didn't charge us extra for not finishing them we will be back especially on Tuesday when its half price all you can eat the only single bad thing was it was cold and both us and another table had to ask them to turn the heating up so I think their heating was broken sadly the only tiny problem

Vinos Restaurant & Cafe
Church Road, Greystones, Greystones, Wicklow

BEST FOOD IN GREYSTONES wonderful atmosphere and the steaks are to die for I always order far too much but its fantastic food and their panna cotta is lovely! the only tiny thing that annoyed me was that the young man knocked a piece of cutlery on the floor and just picked it back up and put it back but the staff were amazing apart from that and I will be back again very soon

Charcoal Grill (Galway)
Cross Street Lower, Galway City, Galway

Lovely little place very busy at night and in the early morning but amazing food everything is prepared perfectly and every kebab comes with separate salads sauces and breads and of course your mix of meats so you can decide how you want your kebab with plenty of left overs to munch on

Cupan Tae

Gorgeous little place amazing tea and cakes a little pricey for the afternoon tea which is just a scone and two tiny tarts with one single sandwich and they were sold out of brown bread at 11.30 but the tea is amazing brought home a lot of bags from their shop and I will be back I just wont get the afternoon tea again

Ming Garden Chinese Restaurant (Galway City Centre)
2 Eglinton Street, Galway City, Galway

Went here with a friend for an early bird special great value for money and you get a loyalty card and a stamp for every 10 euro you spend and when you get ten stamps you get a free lunch! the food was good the portions were a little small but for 10 euro it was great value the waitress was fantastic but the manager or whomever she was, was very rude when we asked where the toilet was and asked for the bill but all in all apart from her an enjoyable experience

Raw
Radisson Blu & Spa, Lough Atalia Road, Galway City, Galway

Went on a short trip and stayed in the Radisson so a meal was included in raw the food wasn't amazing and the restaurant was empty the sushi dessert was not to my taste at all and the rice was under cooked but in saying all that the staff were amazing they really tried to make our night offering advice about other restaurants places to visit and even asking if we wanted pictures taken it was just not great food sadly

The Gallery Restaurant at the Church
Junction of Mary St. & Jervis St., Dublin 1, City Centre North, Dublin

i won a meal here it was really fantastic. The starters weren't great but it just went up from there the mains were great and when we asked if we could order an extra dessert as only two were included in the free meal they gave us the third one for free!!! all our drinks were also free which i was shocked to find out but it was a great surprise and the Irish dancing was fantastic during dinner, would certainly go again they couldn't do enough for us.

Platform Pizza Bar
7 Strand Road, Bray, Co.Wicklow, Bray, Wicklow

really liked this place its great the food is very cheap with pizzas starting at 11 euro and starters are great but the prices were so low we got greedy we ordered the meatballs garlic bread cocktails and the mushroom ruffly pizza and the breakfast pizza we ordered every sauce to try (since they were only ONE EURO) and had all the sides like shoe strings fries and the little potatoes and the garlic bread side (whitch is different to the garlic bread starter) we had lemonades too which were lovely!!! and ordered three desserts we had more than half of each pizza left going home which they gave us boxes for and then we had the chocolate brownie AMAZING!!! and the cheesecake to die for!!! so yummy it was great appart from the fact we were sitted next to a very annoying party but its a really busy place so dont go if u want a quiet night out!!! loved it although cocktails werent great.

La Marine Bistro and Bar @ Kelly's Resort Hotel Ltd
Kelly's Resort Hotel Ltd, Rosslare, Rosslare, Wexford

was a little disapointed with this place they only had three main courses one burger one crab and one vegetarian the desserts were lovely but the staff paid very little attention three times i had to get up to find staff to get chips with the burgers and dessert menus and crab claws, the claws were lovely we ordered two portions and their chowder was very nice but the burgers were very small with big buns one of us only had a stater and i myself only had two starters while the two guys had two mains and one starter and then we all had dessert it came to 120 euro without tip and we only had three soft drinks no wine whitch i think was a bit steep considering two out of the four didnt have mains wont be rushing back but the chowder was good.

Scent Garden Restaurant (Greystones)
1 Main Street, Greystones, Wicklow

went here on sunday and arrived at four as we were to early for the early bird we opted for the all you can eat but after twenty minutes they began to clear away the all you can eat stuff and set up for dinner the food was terrribly dry it had been there for far too long and there was alot of empty containers there was about four pieces of sushi and maybe ten dishes instead of the advertised 38 it was very awkward and they made us really uncomforatable which is so sad because i love there delivery service and couldnt recomend it more its the best in the area its just a shame there restaurant was so empty there was no atmosphere and they chef spends most of his time outside

The Orchid Szechuan
120 Pembroke Road, Dublin 4, Ballsbridge, Dublin

was slightly worried with all the reviews but we had a voucher so we tried this little place anyway and it was the BEST chinese ive had so far we had the five course meal all of which was amazing with free drinks the staff were amazing they waited on us hand and foot even though we had a voucher their was hot towels between each course and our cutlery was changed without us even noticing our drinks were refreshed twice and they remembered our drinks. The fish and beef was the most tender i've ever had and the sauces were so unusual the duck salad was huge and the the different dumplings were such a contrast, for dessert we had the chocolate fondue it was amazing the fruit and cake was so fresh and the marshmallows were lovely we finished it all but had some chocolate left so we were even offered more but we were too full AND AT THE END THEY GAVE US A TEN EURO VOUCHER i was amazed my father was so happy with his birthday dinner he gave a 20 euro tip from the two of us on top of what i paid i cannot believe how wonderful this little place is oh and spotlessly clean!!! 10/10 amazing

Went here for my fathers birthday and was appalled at the service we recieved dirty glasses and asked for new ones and my father recieved another dirty glass so we had to send it back again we all ordered chowder and none of us recieved the brown bread whitch when we asked for it we were told "yeh give me a minute would ya" then we had to ask for butter we all also ordered the steaks whitch were horrible we recieved no chips or side salad as was advertised we also had to ask for knives for our steaks!!!! and the knife my boyfriend recieved was filthy none of the knives matched and one looked like it was straight out of a tool box our side plates were filthy and no one ate their food at the end i was so angry i refused money off and promised i would never return it was the worst birthday experience ever!!!!! i was ashamed having brought my father their and it cost over 150euro discusted.... we had to get food afterwards.

the food is very nice here though a little expensive at 77 euro for three people for a midweek lunch i must warm though although their food is lovely it is not as advertised eg. my breded garlic muchrooms were not breaded and rather covered in cheese and bacon my sliced steak sandwitch was actually a non sliced steak with garlic bread, the carbonara whitch advertises parmisan had cheadar and so on but i cannot speak highly enough of their desserts especially their waffles

Barracuda
Strand Road, Bray, Wicklow

we visited here for my boyfriends birthday and we were VERY angry we were placed next to a band in the booth next to us so we could barely talk. our starters were fantastic but as we were sitting next to friends of the waitress we weren't served as she was too busy, eventually the manager came over to us after we complained to a member of staff from another section who had to bring our cold steaks which we could see sitting waiting for the waitress, then on top of it my steak which was meant to come with a salad had potatoes and carrots. She brought us the wrong desert and when my boyfriend ordered tea he was brought coffee and when i informed the young lady it was wrong she began to fight with me. We were later phoned by the restaurant to ask what was wrong after the list he never even so much as apologised it was a disgrace and i'll never be back

Level 1, Unit 26A, Dundrum Town Centre, Dublin 14, Dundrum, Dublin

Ive gone here almost every week during the summer fo the all you can eat with friends and it has been ok service was always a bit of a problem but the chefs were lovely and we tended to sit near them and ask them for anything we wanted. i was on my last occasion discusted when i ordered the mochi (chocolate rice ball) they were hard crunchy and gone off, not soft and delicious as usual when i complained the woman looked at them walked off checked the date on the pack took them away and said yeh their gone off.... when i took the next plate that came around they too were gone off too again i complained and was told to stop taking them if i know their gone off!!!!!!!!! no appology no fresh ones. it was an absolute joke i think ill stick with yo sushi in town from now on
