Excellent Burgers. One of the best you will get in Ireland. Fantastic value. The burgers are made up on the premises. Try the rosemary wedges. The kids love the place. Only problem is getting into it at the weekend. They don't take bookings so you have to show up and put your name down and wait, which is a good enough excuse to go for a walk along the sea front or to have a beer in the 40th Foot bar \ terrace over the restaurant as they will ring you when your table is ready.

Great food and Great value. Been there 5 or 6 times now. The only downside is that the restaurant is a large room. When it fills up at weekends it can get very noisy. If you're in a large group and sitting directly beside someone you don't notice, however if you go as couple and are sitting across a table from your partner you notice the noise. A simple solution is to pull your chair around. We will be back again and again.

The Lobster Pot
9 Ballsbridge Terrace, Dublin 4, Ballsbridge, Dublin

Lovely fish and great staff. Real old school. We have been there are few times and like one of the other reviewers think they need to do something about the vegetables. On each occassion they were over done and soggy. However the freshness and quality of the fish keeps us going back. Its expensive.

Hartley's Restaurant
1 Harbour Road, South Co. Dublin, Dun Laoghaire, Dublin

This is in the old Restaurant Na Mara building in Dun Laoghaire beside the DART station, and is a complete and welcome change. Good choice of fish and each one of the four of us chose something different and all though it was very good.

Seapoint Restaurant
4 The Crescent, Monkstown, Dublin, Monkstown, Dublin

This place is excellent. Five stars no question. It is only open a few weeks and we have been therefore 3-4 times with different friends all of whom eat out most weekends and thought it was one of the best things yet. It is fantastic value and brilliant food. Check out their menu and their prices on this site and compare it to other places to see how good value this is. Then try it. You will not be disappointed. The wine list is excellent and the bottles are all single vineyard and we are told by the waiter directly sourced by the owners. No rip off brand names here to fleece you, just very good well chosen wines at nearly off licence prices. I think the dearest bottle is €35 and many are in the low +/-€20 zone proving if you know what your doing and where to go you can get excellent wine at the right price. It is a badly needed addition to Monkstown \ Dun Laoghaire. Highly recommend it.

The French Paradox Wine Shop & Wine Bar
53 Shelbourne Road, Dublin 4, Ballsbridge, Dublin

This is a bistro \ wine bar\ tapas bar. The tapas and the cheese plate are excellent. Somewhere to go for a light evening meal or lunch. The wine list is small but very good. (As it is French you expect a large wine choice which must be the paradox.) It is also a little cramped and was very full when we were there. We had a table booked for 9.00pm but it was 9.35 before we got to sit down. The staff were not that apologetic and passed this off by saying "Things like this happen at the French Paradox". We had also specified that we did not want to sit at the bar when booking but this was the only space available. This is not good when there are four of you as you are sitting along in a straight line and can't talk to the person at the far end.

Dax Restaurant
23 Upper Pembroke Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Great. The food is French\French Basque country and excellent. He has also put a lot of thought into the wine list. As well as full meals they do tapas. Try the Dax Special Starter\Tapa (stuffed Ducks Hearts)it is great.

ely winebar
22 Ely Place, (Just off St. Stephen’s Green), Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Excellent. This is a great wine bar with a wine list of over 400 bottles with about 60 or so by the glass. The food is all organic most of which comes from the owners family farm in Clare. Most of the seating is in the Cellar which with its exposed brick has a very nice feel to it and is much nicer than the ground floor level.We alway ask the owners for their wine recommendation and they will guide you on taste and value. You never feel they are trying to push the expensive stuff. They are the experts and will as they get to know you show new stuff etc which they are trying out. Try the pate, organic bangers and mash and especially the cheese plate which is well put together and excellent. They also do a platter of meats and cheeses if you just want to stop by for a glass of wine and a decent nibble.

Il Primo
16 Montague Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin

Great Spot. I have been eating here for years. Try the signature crab lasagne dish, it is fantastic. The resturant used to be run by a fellow who had a wine wholesale business as well, and therefore a good but pricey wine list in the resturant. The staff have now taken the resturant over and the wine list is just as good but far more reasonable. Although the menu does not say it, you can order one of the pasta mains as a starter.
