Went there last night with 2 friends. When we arrived we were told to come back in 30 mins. we went back after 45 mins and were asked to sit at the waiting table. we were waiting there for another 20-30 minutes before we finally had our table. The waiters were freindly , the service was really good, food was delicious... only negative point was the waiting... in the end it was worth the wait!

Went here for late lunch with a friend on Sunday. The place was empty, but the service was good. we ordered 2starters to share: the calamari and a ceasar salad. Both were very nice. Then we took the chicken fajitas for 2. They were nothing special. the flavour of the chicken was bland and the tortilla was quite tough. the restaurant was very cold and the smell of the kitchen was overwhelming at our table. Would not return for the fajitas, maybe for the goodlooking waiter and some more calamari :)

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

Went here on Sunday afternoon for a late lunch. The early bird is very good value. Main and soda for 10.90 or main and glass of wine/beer for 12.90 euro. I ordered the tuna melt ciabatta, which came with fries and cowlsla. My friend had the burger and fries. The food was really nice and good value for money. Staff were very helpful and freindly. I would go back there anytime.

Ivans Oyster Bar & Grill
17 - 18 West Pier, Howth, Dublin

Went there last sunday for lunch with a group of 7 people. 4 people ordered the seafood platter for 150 euro, 2 the fish and chips and 1 the bouillabaise (seafood soup) -the seafood platter was a total rip off. when they brought out the platter it looked huge but once we started eating it was clear that there was more Ice on the platter than fish. There was not even half a crab or lobster for each of us. there were only 3 big prawns which meant we had to cut most things in half to have tasted everything. For the little snails there were no metalic little pins provided to remove them (is this really a fish restaurant???). the waiter gave us toothpicks which would break when trying to get the snails out. -fish and chips was really nice -the bouillabaise was emberassing. for 30 euro my mother received a plate of pieces of fish with just a little liquid at the bottom of the plate. Do they know that Bouiilabaise is supposed to be a SOUP to be eaten with a spoon. we didint even need a spoon for this. The rouille was a little hard ball of paste which tasted horrible. Unbelievable. The service was not very good either. I asked for bread 4 times as they gave 4 slices for a table of 7!!!, and had to ask the waitress to remove the plate full of shells as it was almost the size of the Eiffel tower. Overall a very dissapointing experience as i had heard good comments about this restaurant and i wanted to impress my family and their freinds by bringing them there. Never again.

Knights Bistro @ The Arlington Hotel
23-25 Bachelors Walk, O'Connell Bridge, Dublin 1, City Centre North, Dublin

I went here with a group of 8 people for the irsh dance event. Service was very poor and the staff not friendly at all. The food was nice, The singers were singing too long (and too loud) and by the time we had finished our desert the dancers finally arrived. The dancers were good but not what it used to be when i was there 2 years ago when there was a bigger group of dancers with the typical hairdoes.
