Had dinner here 3 weeks ago. Was pretty busy but still managed to get a quiet corner upstairs, and had a really attentive waiter. They serve you a warm mini loaf while you browse the menu. Beware, its the most delicious bread ever. I had looked at the menu as per menu pages, and its important to note that it HAS changed, with new dishes added and and some omitted. Was looking forward to the surf n turf - this was removed. Im not sure why this is. For starter i had rolled duck breast in tomato sauce with canellini beans, unfortunately it wasnt so good; meat was somewhat flavourless and fatty. For mains, the seafood St Jacques was a winner. Super fresh fish in a yummy sauce, creamy and with mushrooms. Partner had seafood platter - again very tasty and lots of it! Both really struggled to finish it. Overall - the great wine, lovely atmosphere, with charming pub downstairs for pre or after dinner drinks made it a really enjoyable night. Definitely recommend it and will be back.

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

Used a citydeal voucher here last week. This allowed us to have 2 starters, 2 mains from the al la carte menu and glass of wine each. It was a sunday evening when we went in, and were seated in a secluded corner. The place was busy but was perfect atmosphere for 2 sore heads on valentine wkend. I had the scallops on mouselline potatoes - absolutely melt in the mouth. He had duck salad with poached pears, and was also really tasty. For main course, had pan fried fillet of cod with crushed potatoes, again really well cooked; and lamb 2 ways - poached and braised, which was definitely the winner - really succulent and fell apart when touched with the fork. Finished off with a dessert between us with teas and coffees. Its a very high quality of food, just enough topping up of glasses without being intrusive and will definitely be coming back here again!

The Counter Suffolk Street
20 Suffolk Street, City Centre South, Dublin

The Counter is a great place. Centrally located, a huge selection and combinations of burgers, chicken breast burgers or salads for all appetites and even can satisfy those on a diet. Quantities are generous, service is fast and efficient and there always seems to be a buzz in the place! There are options like the chili con carne (which is under the starter section but is a meal in itself, and a favourite of mine.)
