This is a very good restaurant. The occasion was my son's 15th birthday. The service was excellent, friendly and efficient. The food was really good. We both had sirloin steaks and they were done exactly as we had asked. The early bird menu is reasonably priced at €26. It offers a good variety of courses to suit every palate. The decor is quite old fashioned but cosy. Will definately go again, and again.

Moloughney's Clontarf
9 Vernon Avenue, North Dublin, Clontarf, Dublin

Booked the restaurant on a friend's recommendation as the occasion was my wife's 50th birthday. It was fantastic. Service excellent, food likewise and lovely atmosphere. Didn't pay too much attention to the prices but when the bill came although we arrived well past the early bird time, food where cheaper was charged at EB rate. Nice touch and very fair. Well done Moloughneys and thank you for a great night. Will be back soon.

Yuan Ming Yuan Chinese Restaurant
17 Princes Street, Cork City, Cork

My wife, myself and my teenage children were looking at the menu in the doorway of this restaurant. One of the waiters was writing the following day's specials on a blackboard. He told us that even though the early bird was only till 7.00 that we could still avail of it even though it was 8.00, because it wasn't very busy. We were really glad that we took him up on this. The decor is very authentic Chinese with a lovely feeling to the place. We were treated royally by the two waiters. The food was excellent with my children's currys served much to their delight with a small burner under the dish to keep the food hot. The bill including drinks came to a mere €94, excellent value and a great place.

Prego
18 Henry Street, Kenmare, Kerry

This has to be one of the best Italian restaurants that I've had the pleasure of eating in. The staff were lovely and very efficient. The food was second to none, I had meatballs that were a taste of Italy. My son had a proper calzone pizza and it was amazing, stuffed with a mixture of tasty meats. They offer a takeaway pizza service too and there was a constant flow for people queueing for this, obviously a good sign too. The only negative thing and it's quite a small thing is that the place is tiny and the people waiting for takeaway and those waiting to be seated are very close to those who are eating. In fairness this really only affects the people at the two tables inside the door and we were at one of these. Well done nevertheless Prego.

O'Donnabhain's
Henry Street, Kenmare, Kenmare, Kerry

This gastropub came well recommended and we weren't let down. It was extremely busy but the owner took our order while we were waiting to be seated, great idea. The food was superb and very reasonably priced considering the enormous portions. Waiting staff were very friendly and helpful although they were under pressure. We also stayed in the B&B here and it was great. All in all this place is a great example of how a business should be run. We will definately return.

Milano (Killarney)
Main Street, Killarney, Kerry

Travelled to Killarney for a wedding. 30 of us booked Milanos for a pre wedding get together. Booked for 6.00 pm and although people arrived at different times after this, the staff were excellent. Food arrived promptly and was excellent. Thanks Milanos and well done.

Captain America's Cookhouse And Bar
44 Grafton Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Booked a table for 5 people which was just as well as the place was packed. The waitress was very nice and attentive. The kids were delighted with the food but not so the adults. The food arrived within minutes, even before the drinks so it's clearly precooked and it shows. The burgers that we got were stodgy and no better than frozen ones from the supermarket. My memory of old Captain Americas was of homemade tasty burgers. The prices too we far too high for what we got. Restaurant seems to be trading on no longer deserved reputation earned in the past. Pity.

Galo Chargrill
19 Main Street, Enniscorthy, Enniscorthy, Wexford

Our experience could not have been more of a contrast to the only other review of this restaurant. Perhaps the reviewer got mixed up with the name of the restaurant and ate elsewhere. We went in on a busy Sunday in December without a booking and were treated royally. We have been to Portugal several times and the food in this restaurant was as good as we've had. Staff were great and there was a lovely buzz about the place. My 11 yr old who is a fussy eater had the piri piri chicken and loved it. This restaurant was recommended by a friend who lives in Enniscorthy and has eaten there on numerous occacasions with delight. Keep up the good work Galo.

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

Excellent food, beautifully presented and very tasty. Had Shepherd's Pie and it was the best I've ever tasted. The mashed potato topping was a taste sensation in itself. Two of the people in my group has grilled sea bass which although not served with head and tail was excellent. The organic wine was well priced and delicious and interestingly served in flip top flagons. The ambience of the restaurant and the skill of the well trained staff made for a very nice eating experience. Will revisit soon for sure.

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

Myself and a friend were passing the restaurant one Friday evening and decided to venture in, not having heard of the place before but enticed by the smell. It turned out to be a sound choice. We both had the chicken dish from a €20 special menu. It was delicious as was the cheesecake desert. The cheesecake I ordered was not what arrived, but as it looked lovely and because I would have chosen it had it been on the menu I said nothing and enjoyed it. When the waitress came to take away the plates she realised from the garnish that was left that she had given me the wrong cheescake. I explained that it was cool but she insisted on bringing me another glass of wine to apologise. Lovely touch, can't wait to go back.

101 Talbot
Talbot Street, Dublin 1, City Centre North, Dublin

Really excellent restaurant. Great privacy between tables due to sunken floor, clever. Food couldn't have been better. Had the early bird for a very reasonable €21.95. There were 5 of us dining and we all had something different. We swapped forkfuls and all agreed that all dishes were great. We vowed to come again and try different dishes. The house wines were reasonably priced at twenty and a bit. Excellent, attentive but not overbearing service. Will be back soon.

Le Bon Crubeen
81-82 Talbot Street, Dublin 1, City Centre North, Dublin

Very nice restaurant. Nice decor and atmosphere. Myself and my dining partner both went for the 8oz peppered steak. Asked for them to be medium cooked and that's exactly how they were done. Having had the first few bites the waitress asked if the steaks were cooked to our satisfaction. This is a nice touch and they are obviously confident that the chef has done what he was asked to do. Both had apple pie for desert which was excellent. Will definitely revisit. Almost forgot to add that these main courses were very reasonably priced at a mere €12.50 each.

Jimmy Chungs
Eden Quay, City Centre North, Dublin

Great restaurant. Good as any formal sit down Chinese restaurant for the price of a starter. €8.90 for all you can eat. Didn't go overboard has skewered chicken with satay sauce to start. Chicken curry with fried rice for main course followed by apple crumble topped with ice cream from an ice cream machine. This food was excellent. The place was busy so the food was being replaced regularly which ensured that it was fresh and hot. If you're hungry and need to have a quick lunch this is the place for you. I was in and out in a half an hour with change from a tenner which covered a well deserved tip.

Nico's Restaurant
53 Dame Street, Dublin, City Centre South, Dublin

Had lunch with my wife and 2 children in this restaurant. The lunch special deals were excellent. A main course with garlic bread on the side for €8.95. This was a feast for the price of a snack. My children had pizzas which were rustic in presentation with the toppings piled high. They loved them. My wife and I had chicken and pasta dishes which were huge portions and very tasty. Service was excellent. Looking forward to going again, perhaps in the evening to try the 'early bird' menu which also seemed very well priced.

Fagans
Drumcondra, Drumcondra, Dublin

Lovely decor and atmosphere. Friendly staff, appreciative of your custom. Had a fillet steak and all the trimmings and it was superb. Asked for it to be medium done and that's precisely how it was. Food is not cheap with restaurant type prices, but in fairness it's restaurant type quality. Good selection of reasonably priced wines too. All in all a very pleasant eating experience.
