Although the food is ok, the place is extremely overrated and the atmosphere is posh-wanna-be. Staff can be rude and on a Friday night the place is extremely noisy and unpleasant, with a large number of children allowed to run free, shout, and even throw paper airplanes (!!) on other people's tables! This has happened several times and is not a once-off behaviour. Staff acts as if they are better than the clients and are oblivious to the mayhem caused by the kids. Large families spend hours at their tables after eating with their children playing games on their own tablets, as if they were sitting in their own sitting room, while others wait for a table. The least romantic place to go as a couple. With so many fantastic options in Ranelagh, avoid Tribeca if you are a young professional and/or on a date. The restaurant does not cater to this audience - which ironically is the majority of the Ranelagh residents!

Toscana (Dun Laoghaire)
5 Windsor Terrace, South Co. Dublin , Dun Laoghaire, Dublin

I was delighted to find this restaurant with a seaside view and outdoor tables, and thought myself lucky as I decided to have my lunch there after a gorgeous sunny day in Dun Laoghaire. The service, however, was appalling. The restaurant was pretty much empty, yet the waiter had quite an attitude and seemed to go out of his way to make myself and my guests feel unwelcome from the moment we walked in. All in all, it ruined the entire experience and we just wanted to leave as quick as possible. I can't tell whether he thinks he is too good to be serving tables, or my guests and I were not good enough to his high standards, but either way I should not have to put up with this sort of attitude when I'm trying to enjoy my food and a nice afternoon with friends. A pity really, as the place and the food were very good. But I'm def not going back there.

Locks Brasserie
No. 1 Windsor Terrace, South Dublin, Portobello, Dublin

They've got everything absolutely right. The location is gorgeous, the atmosphere is pleasant, the staff is highly well trained and friendly, and the food and selection of wine s is beyond impressive. A fantastic choice. And can I just say again: the food: WOW. Just. WOW. Well done, guys!

El Bahia Moroccan Restaurant
37 Wicklow Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

If I could give 10 stars for the atmosphere in this restaurant, I would. By far my favourite "hidden" place in Dublin and always a fantastic experience. The food is delicious - but hey, forget the food for a moment - the entire experience of dinning there is second to no one. The place is absolutely beautiful, and if you ever have a bigger group of people and/or want to impress clients from your company, make sure to book their especial rooms with marvelous rugs and lamps and stunning Moroccan decoration. Fantastic for dates as well, the dim light and the Moroccan lamps at each table make you feel like in an exotic fairy-tale-ish place. And yes - the food IS fantastic!!

Milano (Ranelagh)
Ground Floor & First Floor, 62 Ranelagh Village, Dublin 6, Ranelagh, Dublin

It's a franchise restaurant, so do not expect unique atmosphere. With that said, they deliver remarkably well everything they promise: the food is always great, the staff is well-trained and friendly, value is excellent and it's equally pleasant for family meals, business dinners, dates and a catch up with friends. Can't go wrong. Highly recommend. it.

Dillingers
47 Ranelagh Village, Dublin 6, Ranelagh, Dublin

Went there twice with colleagues from work for brunch, given the good reviews we had heard. Major disappointment and it actually became a joke at our office - whenever we have to take an unpleasant client to dinner, we say we will bring him to Dillingers :D The place is dark and gloomy, tries to be posh but doesn't quite achieve it, and insists on making people wait and sitting at the bar for a full meal even though they are completely empty before, during and after our visit in a rainy quiet morning. The food was good but definitely overpriced and the staff was incredibly slow and stand-offish. Would not recommend it.

Peperina Bistro Garden
25 Dunville Avenue, Dublin 6, Ranelagh, Dublin

I can only review their food and service, since I have only got delivery from this restaurant. The food is very good but the staff are not prepared to meet the customer's basic needs and I always have the feeling I'm dealing with hipster waiters from a overrated trendy bistro in New York. Twice my delivery box arrived opened and with sauce/soup spilled all over the bag and other items, and/or the paper bag ripped. The highlight [not!] was when the delivery guy dropped an entire bowl of soup on my hallway carpet and walls and made it sound like a big favour that he would bring another delivery, while I waited for it cleaning and wiping their mess in my house with a sick person in bed. Kind of put me off trying it on-site.

Marios (Ranelagh)
39 Ranelagh Village, Dublin 6, Ranelagh, Dublin

You can tell this is a well-established restaurant and not just a trendy new place popping up in Ranelagh, just to close its doors months later. The atmosphere is so pleasant, perfect for a romantic date or a business dinner. Quiet but dynamic, fantastic taste in decoration and furniture. The staff is highly trained and the food is absolutely fantastic. Highly recommend it.

Pinocchio Italian Restaurant & Wine Bar
Luas Kiosk, Ranelagh Village, Dublin 6, Ranelagh, Dublin

Very good location, interesting selection of good Italian food and good service. Somewhat overpriced though, but hey - it's in Ranelagh, besides the Luas and has good quality Italian food, so what would you expect? :) Would like to see more variety in starters.

Hobarts
Ranelagh Village, Ranelagh, Dublin

Fantastic for a quiet brunch. The food is delicious, the portions are huge and the staff - especially this lady with short hair who has always been there since the beginning - is so incredibly friendly and gentle that you forget you are not having a Sunday fry with your mom. Can't recommend enough, the food is great by the service really makes it stand out. They are also extremely accommodating when it comes to change/add items on an order and really go the extra mile to ensure the customer is relaxed and content. Well done!

Punjabi By Nature Indian Restaurants & Takeaway
15 Ranelagh Village, South Dublin, Ranelagh, Dublin

One of our favourite places in Ranelagh. Food is delicious, the restaurant is gorgeous, lovely atmosphere and the staff is always friendly and accommodating. Nice touch with candles on the tables and ultra-comfy chairs.

The least romantic place to go as a couple. With so many options in Ranelagh, I wouldn't recommend it for young professionals.
