This was my first visit to this restaurant, really liked it. The food is just great and the staff are fantastic. The jury was out for me on Tapas but this place changed my mind. Delicious food and great atmosphere, great for a night out with a bunch of friends as you can order loads of different foods to taste! I would recommend the calamari, and also the asparagus & parma ham dishes! :) I will definitely return.

Las Rada Wine and Tapas Bar
New Row, Newbridge Road, Naas, Kildare

I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough. I wasn't the biggest Tapas fan before I dined here but I am converted! Delicious food, fantastic atmosphere, lovely staff and excellent service. I'm a local and this is now my favourite restaurant in Naas. I will definitely return!


Village Cafe
Rathmines, Rathmines, Dublin

Ate here last night with my family and loved it. Booked it after reading the other reviews and it didn't disappoint. The food was delicious, service was excellent and extremely reasonably priced. I will definitely be back.


Radisson SAS Hotel and Spa
Ballincar, Rosses Point, Rosses Point Road, Sligo Town, Sligo

Had lunch here one of the 3 days we stayed in the hotel and it was lovely. I had the seafodd chowder which was really delicious. My mum had smoked salmon with crusty brown bread, again delicious. We also had our breakfast there the three mornings and I have no complaints whatsoever. The choice was fantastic.


Jasmine Thai Restaurant
Riverside Suites Hotel, Riverside, Sligo Town, Sligo

I love Thai food and I have to say this was lovely. Lovely location beside the river and the staff were very nice. Starters weren't too big which is good and left plenty of room for the mains. We both had Thai curry which was delicious.


L'Officina by Dunne & Crescenzi (Kildare)
Kildare Chic Outlet Shopping Village, Kildare, Kildare Town, Kildare

Ate here with my Mum. I really like this place. The food is so good and you know you are getting quality. We both had the Risotto which was absolutely delicious. I like the atmosphere and I almost always eat here when I visit Kildare village. I will be back.


Vanilla Pod Restaurant
Headfort Arms Hotel, Kells, Meath

Ate here with my boyfriend. Starters were nice as were our mains. The atmosphere is lovely, nice and cosy. Staff very nice too. I would probably go back.

Fabulous place, love the food and the atmosphere. Would put this as a favourite of mine. I will be back.


Il Fico
Dublin Road, Naas, Kildare

Really nice place, brilliant atmosphere. Early bird is great value. The only thing I would say is that the tables are very close together so it is a little cramped but I will go back. Great value for this times!!


Elephant & Castle
18/19 Temple Bar, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Such a great place, we had to come back twice for our table and wait a bit but honestly dont mind as you know you are going to get great service and delicious food. It's always buzzing and I will go back without a doubt. TOTALLY recommend it.


Peppe Restaurant

Great food, good service, good early bird which is nice to see, starter combo is delicious. Have been here several times and will go back.


The Birdcage Cafe
Avoca Rathcoole, Naas Road, Rathcoole, Dublin

Had lunch here with 3 friends, never fails to impress, the sandwiches are delicious,, salds so tasty and varied and their deserts, well......the best!!!! One thing, I had the Banoffi pie, really delicious but just too much cream on top! Their coffees are also divine and they have soy milk which is a plus for me! :) I will be back.


Gourmet Burger Kitchen (GBK Liffey Valley)
Unit 40B, Liffey Valley Shopping Centre, West Dublin, Liffey Valley, Dublin

I have been a fan of gourmet burger since it opened and have eaten in the Ranelagh and Naas branches a few times. This was my first time in this one and I hate to say it, but may be my last. We dropped in before the cinema and gave ourselves an hour. When we ordered, the waitress asked if we would like to order starters as our mains would be at least 20 minutes which was fair enough. We did this and 25 minutes laster, still no starters! When we asked, we were told that they had said it would be 20 minutes but that wasn't the issue, it was that we hadn't received the starters, so she brought them out and it was obvious that they had been sitting a while. We then got our mains and the chips were soggy and only just warm. Fair enough, they seemed understaffed but it would put me off going there again and one of the dips we received with our starters looked as though it may have been re-cycled from another table!! Nice staff but service wasn't great and neither was the food. One good thing - if you show your cinema ticket when ordering, all burgers are €5!


Jasmine Palace (Limerick)
O'Connell Street, Limerick City, Limerick

Ate here with two friends, it was lovely. We had a starter and main each and shared a desert. Starters were just the right portion size and delicious. Mains the same, noodles cooked to perfection and my chicken dish was scrumptious. Staff were nice and attentice. The atmosphere in the restaurant was fabulous, it attracted us to it in the first place. Only one complaint - music at one point was just too loud. Other than that, great meal and if I am in Limerick again, I will return.


Saints & Scholars Lounge
35 Abbey Street Lower, City Centre North, Dublin

Nice enough place. My sister and I had dinner here, went for the turkey and stuffing, turkey was delicious but portion too big. The vegetable were slightly overcooked but the potatoes were lovely, they had a crispy coating on them which was nice. I have also eaten lunch here a couple of times, sandwiches which were lovely. The staff were okay.


6-7 Jervis Street, Millennium Walkway, Dublin 1, City Centre, Italian Quarter, Dublin

Myself and a friend ate here last night. The food is delicious. The staff were absolutely lovely. I love the atmosphere in the place and it never lets me down.


The Bull & Castle and F.X. Buckley Steakhouse
5-7 Lord Edward Street, Christchurch, Dublin 8, City Centre South, Dublin

Had lunch here with a friend. It's a gorgeous pub, reminds me of being abroad for some reason but in a good way. Fantastic selection of beers and the menu is great. My friend has fish and chipsn which, although the portion size was a bit too big, it was delicious and they serve it with mushy peas, a MUST for fish and chip lovers! I had the fish pie and it was really delicious. Not too creamy or heavy and just the right amount of mash potato on top. I will go back to this pub again without a doubt, I had been wanting to try it for ages and my expectations were not disappointed! :)


Luigi Malones Restaurant
5/6 Cecilia Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin

I'm becoming a regular here, had calamari to start, lovely, and burger with chorizo and BBQ relish which was delicious, the early bird menu is superb value and a great selection on there too. The staff are always great and very helpful.


The Atrium Lounge
The Westin Hotel, College Green, Dublin, City Centre South, Dublin

Oh I love this bar so much, it's not exactly the place to go if you are on a night out with friends but I always try and make a point of bringing my Mam here when she visits, she loves it. It's interior is gorgeous and the high ceiling is just lovely. Service is excellent and I love the little nuts they serve with drinks. I am going here this Saturday coming again so looking forward to it! :)


Mao Restaurant (Dun Laoghaire)
The Pavillion, South Co, Dublin, Dun Laoghaire, Dublin

Went here for an early dinner with 3 friends. We shared the ribs and spring rolls to start and they were really delicious. I had Malaysian Chicken as a main, scrumptious. The only complaint is that the portion was too big, it would have fed two of us, I just felt I wasted alot of it as couldn't finish it. That said, the food here is really delcious and the staff very friendly and attentive.


Bollywood Spices (Naas)
1-A Naas Town Centre, Naas, Naas, Kildare

This is a great Indian. We usually get take-away from here when ordering in, would go here before any of the other Indians in Naas, they always give you complimentary Tiger beer or wine when ordering take-away also which is a nice little perk! I have eaten in the restaruant once and it didn't disappoint. The staff are great too, very helpful and friendly. I would recommend and will go back!


Weeping Thaiger (Naas)
Wolfetone Street, New Town Centre, Naas, Kildare

Had a takeaway from this place, we had the mix starter platter which was a lovely mix of tiny treats! Delicious. Had Pad Thai for main which was gorgeous. I will be back.


Hanlon's Bar Restaurant and Club
189 North Circular Rd, Dublin 7, Cabra, Dublin

Grand, go back now and again with work.


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

This was my second time at this restaurant and again, the staff were excellent, I had to ask for the early bird menu though which annoyed me a little as we were there at 6.30 and the early bird ends at 7.00, adn we were told we had 20 mins to order, anyway aside from that, had a lovely meal. I had the ribs again to start which were yum, and the chicken pie for main, which was lovely. Again, I will go back.


Upper Dominick Street, Galway City, Galway

Nice place, my boyfriends beef stew was delicious and served with nice crusty bread. I had the lamb which was nice, not the best I've had but lovely all the same. My friend had a pizza which was yum. Nice pub, was my first time here and I would go back, good atmosphere, nice and spacious.

St Andrew Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

This was my second visit to this restaurant and certainly won't be my last. I went with 4 friends who were all first timers and they all loved it too, we went for the pre-theatre dinner menu which is 3 courses for €25. I think it is great value, I had the pate to start and the duck for main which were both delicious. The service is excellent, albeit a little slow at times, but I think it adds to the lovely relaxed atmosphere of the place. The decor is great, very traditional and cosy, perfect for a date! :)


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

Ate here with a friend. Has one of the vegetarian rice dishes as main and duck gyoza as a side dish. LOVE their food. I recommend to everyone, it's quick, tasty, healthy, reasonably priced and you don't leave feeling full and stodgy!!! I will be back, again and again and again.......


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

Nice place, had heard alot about it and wanted to try it for ages. I love Asian food so generally like these restaurants. I did enjoy it but not the best I've had. The starters were okay and the main course was better. Their starter and main course deal for €18.95 is very good. Staff were lovely so no complaints there. I would go back but not in a major hurry. Overall, a nice dining experience.


Plan B
Manor Place, Stoneybatter, Dublin

Great little place, lovely food and good value for money, nice staff too. Only thing I would try to improve on is the speed of service, was there one day for lunch months ago and ended up taking my lunch away as it took over half an hour which was annoying but that would not put me off as overall it's a quaint, cheap, cheerful place with yummy food!


73 Manor Street, Stoneybatter, Dublin

Really like this place, food is always good and good value. Staff are lovely. I will go back.


Gourmet Burger Kitchen (GBK Naas)
Main Street, Naas, Kildare

This is such a great place for a family, great value for money meal. I have been twice with my extended family which includes a 3 year old and 1 year old. The staff are great, so helpful and friendly. It's a perfect family restaurant, also great for a cheap meal out for birthdays, etc! I will be back and will also try the other Gourmet Burger restaurants around the country! :)


19 Lower Camden Street, Dublin 2, Camden Street, Dublin

I LOVE this restaurant, great food, great service, such value for money, I will definetely go back and have recommended it to all of my friends.
