Once again, lunch was extremely enjoyable. I was having an off day with wine but the waitress could not have been any nicer. She let me taste two of them with the result I ended up buying 3 glasses of wine. We both had the main course rotisserie chicken, with roasted root veg and mash an my companion said it was as good as my own dinners.

Marco Pierre White Steakhouse & Grill
51 Dawson Street, Dublin 2, Dawson Street, Dublin

Fabulous food, lives up to its Michelin starred chef's reputation. We had a 2 course lunch deal and the portions were very generous. The fish cake with poached egg and hollandaise was mouth watering. Will be back soon

Rustic Stone
South George's Street, Dublin, City Centre South, Dublin

The chicken wings have to be one of the best in Dublin. Fresh, crusty, organic sourdough bread with delicious hummous and baba ganoush. What's not to like. Friendly service too.

Rustic Stone
South George's Street, Dublin, City Centre South, Dublin

I was not expecting what arrived at the table! The Raw Tasting Platter using a Menupoints voucher was simply stunning. I am still in awe at the presentation and flavours. It was accompanied by two delicious sides. a hot quinoa dish and a cold beans, peas and sprouted seeds dish. I cannot wait to go back there with friends. There is a really varied menu, something for everyone. Out on its own! A must try!

The Bradaun Restaurant @ Leixlip House Hotel
Leixlip, Leixlip, Kildare

Had a lovely meal here with work colleagues and I even stayed over. My single room was upgraded to a really comfortable old world style superior room - nice touch! I enjoyed the goats cheese starter and the baked salmon with roasted vegetables main course. The brown bread had way too much soda or raising agent in it and the sticky toffee pudding dessert should have been served warm, small errors and easily rectified! The staff were gracious, breakfast next morning was substantial and I was even offered a non dairy milk for my coffee. Nice little touches in this hotel - guests are made very welcome!

Wallace's Asti
15 Russell Street, Behan Square (just off the North Circular Road at Croke Park), City Centre North, Dublin

A spur of the moment decision on the way to The Script concert in Croke Park took us to this fab, authentic Italian restaurant. We were welcomed in the door at 4.15pm even though their opening time is 5.00pm. By 5.00pm there were queues at the door waiting for a table. I heard a waiter explain to a girl beside me who wanted chicken in her Pasta Arrabiata that it wasn't an Italian dish so they don't do it. I was impressed by this. Having visited Asti many times and experienced the local regional cuisine, I have always wanted to find a true Italian restaurant here and yesterday I did. My niece and I shared two starters, Prosciutto Di Parma with Buffalo mozzarella and Straccetti Di Manzo, delicious with the crusty bread. For mains we shared the Asti pizza baked in a traditional Italian stone oven. It was so good, we ordered a 2nd one. I must remember to order a take away pizza if ever I am passing. The Arneis Langhe white wine was really good too.The staff and service were super and I will definitely return very soon.

Avenue by Nick Munier
1 Crow Street, City Centre South, Dublin

My friend and I both had a very positive dining experience. The staff were welcoming and friendly and our waitress Sadhbh was a little treasure. Great to see young people adding a trendy vibe to this new restaurant. I couldn't fault any of the courses. The salmon tartare starter was simple and elegant. My friend had the poached egg salad which was beautifully presented. My chicken main course was moist and succulent. The star of the evening for me was the generous cheese plate dessert with homemade crackers. We had the house white wine, a Sauvignon Blanc and a glass of house red with our cheese plates. Both were lovely. This restaurant lived up to the hype and both our expectations. I will definitely go again.

Brasserie Sixty6

A little gem! A lovely Brazilian waitress served us. I had the baby vegetable tagine and couscous from the vegetarian menu. The veg was all fresh as was the salad that accompanied it. Two Brazilian tourists looked in the window, saw our food and came in and ordered the same dish. My companion had the swift lunch lemon chicken with Mash which was excellent. Exceptional value! We will both be back here soon.

Gochi
13 Dawson Street, Dawson Street, Dublin

Service was a little slow at first, but the food was hot, fresh and very tasty. The tampura was delicious as was the sushi. It was very good value and my companion has returned since then and enjoyed their food again. I wasn't mad about the house wine, I believe the beer is good though.

Baan Thai (Leopardstown)
Central Park, Block P, Dublin 18, Leopardstown, Dublin

The decor in this restaurant is really lovely and different. I brought 2 american visitors here as one of them had a birthday. We shared the puk tempura, and the mixed platter starters. The food was served hot and it was delicious as were the dips that came with them. For mains we shared the Pad Thai fried noodles with prawns and chicken with broccoli. There was a generous amount of prawns in the noodles but I found this dish a bit heavy but the chicken dish was very good. Next time I would like to try their soups and salads. The menu is very appealing and I will definitely be going back.

Talavera Restaurant
Radisson Blu, St Helen's Hotel, Stillorgan Road, Stillorgan, Dublin

I had been promised a true Italian experience at this restaurant and it more than lived up to its award winning status. This was by far the most authentic Italian meal I’ve had since I visited Cascina Papa Mora in the hills of Cellarengo Italy. I was reminded of the wonderful regional dishes I’ve enjoyed so many times in Italy. The dining room, though in the basement, was airy and comfortable and had a simple elegance. The service from the start was impeccable and subtle. Our waitress brought hot focaccia bread with cherry tomatoes straight out of the oven. On hearing we liked Italian cooking the head chef Giancarlo sent out Polpette di Melanzane, an aubergine fritter with smoked mozzarella in the centre. This is street food in parts of Italy. I followed this with a truly memorable Burrata, creamy mozzarella cheese with marinated tomatoes perfectly seasoned with crushed black pepper, sea salt and fresh basil. Another highlight was the risky risotto with radicchio, it turned out to be delicious. The baked salmon with sun blushed tomatoes ordered by my companion was also a hit. A generous selection of roasted new potatoes and vegetables accompanied her dish. This restaurant offers some of their dishes in starter portions as well as mains which is fantastic if like me, you prefer a tasting menu to a large plate of the same thing. I also tried the linguine with pesto and cherry tomatoes. The flavours were fresh and exciting and I wasn’t surprised to hear the chef has a herb garden outside. The selection of wines available by the glass was impressive and in true Slow Food style, I was able to pair the wine with the dishes. The Pinot Grigio Trentino was wonderfully aromatic and the cabernet sauvignon/sangiovese red was delightful. There was room for only a few spoonfuls of the lovely cappuccino tiramisu. This hotel has a little gem in this restaurant and its staff. The passion and love of cooking is evident in the food and service. I cannot wait to go back there.

Nyonya Malaysian Restaurant
76 Dame Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

I loved the flavours of the food in this restaurant. Two of us had lunch here as we had purchased a deal. The portions were small but adequate for lunch. The food arrived hot and fresh. We both enjoyed perfectly cooked Satay chicken as starters. We ordered Kung Po chicken and one of the chicken curries which had plenty of fresh vegetables in the. This is an authentic malasian restaurant and I would highly recommend it. While I was waiting for my friend to arrive, I ordered the malaysian pancakes with curry sauce. These are a must if you visit this restaurant.

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

The restaurant was very quiet when we visited and lacked atmosphere but the service was good. My friend and I selected a few starters and a pasta dish and pizza to share, as a ‘tasting’ menu. The best dish was the Cozze marinato, mussels in cream and wine. This was excellent.The breads and dips were disappointing (lacked freshness and flavour) as was the limp Caesar salad which didn’t have a ‘caesar’ dressing on it. However, the Garlic mushrooms stuffed with a trio of cheese and served with garlic aioli were good as was the Hot and spicy Mexican Pizza. This is a genuine Italian restaurant, staffed by Italians and it was very good value for money. The house Pinot Grigio was also good value.

Dax Cafe Bar
23 Pembroke Street Upper, City Centre South, Dublin

I love Dax, it is one of my favourite places to go for good food and drinks with friends. I love the tapas style dishes in the cafe bar, it is so nice to have tasters of different things. Four of us shared 8 tapas and there was plenty for a taste each, we also had dips and tapenades and the house wine was good. There is a nice atmosphere here, we weren't rushed for our table and the waiter made us feel very much at home. Dax have some very good deals from time to time so watch out for them, they are great value.

Bon Appetit
9 James Terrace, Malahide, Dublin, Malahide, Dublin

Two of us went here for a birthday and it was certainly a very special experience. We had the set menu with amuse bouche and sorbets presented as well. The quail starter was a delight as was the venison wellington mains. There are so many interesting elements in every dish, it is definitely a unique place to eat, and full of talented chefs. Service was very attentive, bubbly was offered at the start, didn't realise I could just order a glass. I also loved the dessert and homemade chocolate petit fours. It is expensive but well worth it for all the prep that goes in to the food.

Gourmet Food Parlour Ballyboughal
Oldtown Road, Ballyboughal, Ballyboughal, Dublin

This is a gem of a place out the country in north dublin which has a lovely gift shop, art gallery and gardens. If it was a bit warmer, we would have sat outside.Two of us had the afternoon tea special, one person had the lovely broccoli and leek soup with a large half sandwich for 8.50, great value. We were very impressed with the manageress there, a warm and welcoming person who really seems to love her work and is genuinely interested in her customers and in promoting the restaurant. There is a great choice on the menu for all budgets and we will definitely be going for a few more 'Sunday' drives there.

Farm Restaurant (Dawson Street)
3 Dawson Street, Dublin 2, Dawson Street, Dublin

I bought two courses from The Farm at Home menu. The Hummous starter was excellent and went down very well. I was a bit disappointed with the Fish Pie. My portion had at least 5 bones and the fish was overcooked resulting in a very dry and uninteresting pie. The side salad had dressing on it so by the time I got home it was wilted. I like the concept of this restaurant though and their use of locally sourced and organic ingredients where possible. Their children's menu is also good and the staff were very helpful.

Pacinos
18 Suffolk Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Brought a friend here for lunch for her birthday and we weren't disappointed. We got a nice welcome when we arrived and a very helpful waiter. We both had prawns starters which were good and we shared the Jalapeno pizza. It was tasty, had a thin base and was perfect for lunch. We asked for a light fruity white wine and were offered a tasting of the house Pinot Grigio which was delicious. Again at only 12% alcohol, it was perfect for lunch. The place has nice character and the atmosphere was good, plus the chef is Italian so I will definitely go back and ask for an Italian speciality!

Markree’s Knockmuldowney Restaurant
Markree Castle, Collooney, Sligo

Markree Castle is out on it's own, very unique and has an old world feel. We booked a table at the last minute as we were only in the area for 2 nights. it was difficult to find, coming from the Enniskillen side as it wasn't well signposted compared to other castles. We felt a bit invisible when we arrived as nobody seemed to notice us sitting at our table waiting for service. When our waitress arrived however, she apologised for the delay and explained they were very busy. She looked after us well after that. The food was nice, though the mashed potato came out cold, twice! I'd definitely like to go back and explore the castle and the grounds better, it is unlike any place I have ever seen and well worth a visit and they have been awarded wedding venue of the year 2010 so that says something.

ely gastro bar
Grand Canal Square, (Next to the Bord Gais Energy Theatre), Dublin 2, Grand Canal Dock, Dublin

I decided to treat myself before the Ronan Keating gig in the new Grand Canal theatre. I was surprised when I arrived at 5pm to find a real buzz in the place and a spring in the steps of all the waiters. I got a lovely table looking out at the theatre,watching the world go by. My waiter recommended the mussels cooked with pernod and fennel and they were really good. I also loved the cheese plate, with homemade peach chutney and the cheese was at room temperature which I was delighted about. 2 glasses of montepulciano later and I was ready for the gig. I will definitely be back as the 50 bus brings me all the way from my house to the theatre. Gret service and a menu to suit all pockets - highly recommend a visit.

Rolys Bistro
7 Ballsbridge Terrace, Dublin, Ballsbridge, Dublin

Four of our family booked Roly's cafe for my niece's graduation in the RDS. You can only book a table on the day and by the time I phoned at 11am, they were almost booked out! The set menu, any starter, any main course and 2 of their tapas size desserts was only 27 euro, really good value. We had a lovely bottle of house wine, Pinot Grigio for just under 16 euro. The food was amazing and our bill was just 115 euro plus the 15 euro tip we left - a wonderful place for a family celebration. There was a queue at the door when we were leaving. Service was excellent and very discreet.I can't wait to go back, really good value for anyone on a budget.

Ragazzi Italian Ristorante
109 Coliemore Road, South Co. Dublin, Dalkey, Dublin

What a find. This is a truly authentic Italian Restaurant. I was there with friends on Monday and we had a tasting menu of a few different dishes, including mozzarella and bresaola tart, penne arrabiata, calamarai and chicken in a mascarpone sauce. It was so nice and very reasonable. I ordered a salami pizza to take home and it reminded me of the pizza I had when I was in Italy. They have a nice selection of italian wines by the glass too. I will definitely be going there again soon.

Il Vignardo
Beresford Hotel, 21 Store Street, City Centre North, IFSC, Dublin

This is a great central place to meet, opposite Busaras. I came in to Dublin on the Luas, my friend came from Meath on Bus Eireann. We were both surprised to see such a good value menu offered on a Saturday night - €20 for 4 courses and the food was great. We had chicken caesar salad and breaded mushrooms with a garlic dip for starters. We both had the chicken breast with a pesto and panchetta sauce with chips for our main course. Portions were very generous. Hopefully more people will get to know about it as the restaurant is spacious and there weren't many people there.

Bits and Pizzas
15 Patrick Street, Dun Laoghaire, Dun Laoghaire, Dublin

It's nice to find a good restaurant that is open during the day and this is definitely one! I had the prawns on a skewer and a greek salad,my friend had the chicken caesar salad, both were very fresh and cooked to perfection. The portions were also generous, service was good and the restaurant is spacious and airy. I got the feeling that the staff pride themselves on giving customers a positive experience. A good italian cappucino rounded off the meal nicely. Will be back to try their pizzas next time! They looked delicious.

Havana Tapas Bar
Georges Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin

I've been here twice in the past month, the first time with a spanish student who was staying with me. He enjoyed the food as did I, especially the pinchos(mixed platter) and the Calamares which was the best I have ever tasted. I thought the English language exchange get together for people learning to speak English was a great idea. My second visit was during the day, food was good but some of it arrived late, I prefer when all the tapas arrive together. Also service was poor on this occasion. We had to ask for plates and for our water jug to be refilled. Not a big deal though, the staff are lovely and it is very good value. Will go there again.

Mao Restaurant (Chatham Row)
2-3 Chatham Row, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

I had dinner with my Niece midweek and the place was full and cheerfully noisy due to a stag party! Nevertheless, service was great. Their soups are amazing value but if you don't like it too hot, take out the chillies before you start! We shared 2 great main courses and our observant waiter brought us clean plates each. The house Pinot Grigio is very good value. Portions are substantial and we had no room for dessert. Everything was cooked fresh and the vegetarian options are great.

Boulevard Cafe
27 Exchequer Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin

I booked a table here for my mother and my two teenage nieces and all of us were delighted with the food and the service. Our waiter 'Bubbles' was a character from another world and added to the atmosphere in the restaurant. We found it very spacious, service was good and we weren't rushed which was nice. The food was really good and reasonable, will definitely go back.

Govindas Restaurant (Aungier Street)
4 Aungier Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

As a mature student at nearby DBS (Dublin Business School) I am always on the look out for cheap and cheerful healthy food on Wednesday and Thursday evenings. Govinda's never disappoints. Their special at 6.95 is very good value though I sometimes feel very full afterwards. On occasions I opt for the salad plate which is great value at 4.00 euro. This with a slice of bread and soup makes a great meal and it is possible to have dessert as well for a tenner. The food is very tasty, nutritious and I am assured of getting the recommended daily 5 portions of fruit and vegetables.

Grangecon Cafe
Kilbridie Road, Grangecon, Blessington, Wicklow

I consider this restaurant 'my local' as I only live 10 mins from here. I go here quite a lot, sometimes for their organic breakfast fry up, somtimes for soup and Ille coffee and sometimes for my main meal of the day. My favourite is the spinach and feta filo pie. I often get this with a salad and coleslaw and it is really good value. The coffee is great and the pastries too which vary according to what is seasonal. Everything is freshly made using local ingredients, a truly sustainable enterprise.

Vina Mara Restaurant
19 Middle Street, Galway City, Galway

My friend who lives in Galway brought me here for lunch. It was a place he wanted to try for a while. The food was excellent, I had pan fried sea bream on a bed of saute greens with roast potatoes. The sea bream had a tomato salsa on top. The whole combination of flavours was amazing. I had the smoked haddock and prawn chowder for starters, lovely flavour though a tad too hot. It was really good value, 18.50 for 2 courses. Simple food cooked to perfection!
