Thundercut Alley
Thundercut Alley, Smithfield, Dublin

This is one hell of a place, great food, great music and great cocktails. Bottomless Mimosas were just that, chicken schnitzel and chilli dish brunch items were delicious and very generous portions. The wait staff charming and attentive. At first glance it would appear to be a young persons' place but not really - these two dinosaurs felt quite at home. We were there for brunch and I am reliably informed that dinner is even better. Oh, and best of luck to the three girls on a mini-hen!

The Vintage Kitchen
7 Poolbeg St, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

I completely and utterly agree with all the reviews - except for the negative one earlier. this place is FABULOUS...miss it at your peril. Food, service outstanding. My only gripe is that the music is a tad on the loud side but that is being totally curmudgeonly. Book early and book often!

Damascus Gate
10 Upper Camden Street, Dublin 2, Camden Street, Dublin

Went to Damascus Gate on Saturday night. The place was hopping. Service is friendly but they could do with perhaps explaining more what the different dishes were.The food was lovely, a bit bland, but tasty nonetheless. Quite the interesting experience and we would defintely return.

Spice of India - South William Street
6 South William Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

The food in this little gem is delicious. Best Biryani I have eaten and a good and fiery Vindaloo - plenty hot and still edible. Lovely staff. It was very quiet though which is a shame but good value and well worth a visit or more

Wrights Findlater Howth Restaurant
Findlater House, North Co. Dublin, Howth, Dublin

I was at this restaurant for lunch on Sunday with a large group and considering they were feeding 27 of us, it was really very good. Perfect steak and the staff were efficient and friendly. The loos could have used some attention though, otherwise it was a good choice for a big gang

Alfies
10 South William Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Had a lovely lazy lunch in Alfies, nice wine, a good steak and a Cuba Libra sitting outside. This is a lovely restaurant and I will return.

Bridge Bar and Bistro
The Malting Tower,, Grand Canal Quay, Dublin, Grand Canal Dock, Dublin

I'm only sorry I must have missed the Menupages deal rercently. This is a lovely restaurant - went there last year on a deal and returned last week on foot of it. Delicious starter of black pudding and a mad fried /boiled egg....fab steak. the service is friendly, the room very attractive and comfortable. the only draback is that it was very quiet but it was a Tuesday.Will return I hope - great for the DART too. Love it!

Mamma Mia Deli Cafe Bar
2 Grattan Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

This place is a hidden gem. Only spotted it because of the banner at the bottom of the street. Loads of parking helped. The food is delicious, the service slightly chaotic but charming. You have to try the tiramisu. Intend to go back next week, and the week after that, and the week after that...

ZAO Thai Restaurant
96B Omni Park Shopping Centre, Swords road , North Dublin, Santry, Dublin

Ate here on Tuesday with a City Deal voucher. Friendly staff and delicious food. Will definitely return and recommend this place. As other reviewer said, no complaints...

The Bloody Stream Restaurant
Under Howth Dart Station, North Dublin, Howth, Dublin

Had lunch here three times over December. There is a lovey atmosphere in this pub, particulary in the early evening. The food is pretty good for pub grub - the fish and chips the best in Howth to my mind. Nice staff and a big fire add to the enjoyment of the place. For out of towners, the Dart upstairs is a godsend!

The Brass Monkey
12 West Pier, Dublin 13, Howth, Dublin

I ate here last Saturday night with a group of 8 friends. This is a great restaurant and a welcome addition to Howth. Great atmosphere, friendly and efficient staff and pretty good food. Eight meals and no bummers...to be recommended!

St Kyrans Country House
Dublin Road, Virginia, Cavan

Very happy to be the first to review this restaurant. It is an absoute gem. The food is top class, the service warm and friendly and the value excellent. I had travelled to Virginia from Dublin to see a play and by pure chance had booked what I thought was an ordinary bed and breakfast, although the website implies quite different. Delicious starter of crab and crayfish salad followed by rump of lamb. The whole experience was delightful and I plan to return again in December. I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough and wish the Keenans well in the future.

Millstone, A Dublin Restaurant
39 Dame Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Had lunch in the Millstone last Saturday. After a bumpy start with a grumpy waiter, all went well. Delicious food and lovely atmosphere. Will return and would recommend...

Masterson's Steakhouse & Wine Bar
17 Main Street, Swords, Dublin

Ate here on Friday night with three friends. Food was delicious; the sizzling prawns the nicest I have eaten outside Spain. Two ginormouse rib eye steaks were delish and my dog loved them the next day as the two women were both bested by them. Lamb cutlets perfect. Baked potato a bit tough but small complaint. The place was hopping, a bit noisy if anything, but nice to be in a busy restaruant. Lovely staff and service, yum cocktail - an all round good experience and we will definitely be back. The early bird looks like terrific value too

Casa Tivoli
Bridge Street, Ballyconnell, Cavan

Lovely restaurant. Was staying in the Slieve Russell and needed to escape the crowds. Saw this restaurant on Menpages and both reviews so far are spot on. Food delicious, tasted very authentic to me anyway but then I am not Italian. Charming and friendly service and t'would be reason enough to visit Ballyconnell.

The Greenroom Restaurant at Seafield Hotel & Spa Resort
Ballymoney, Ballymoney Wexford, Wexford

Visited Seafield House for a night and had lunch in the bar and dinner in the restaurant. The welcome at reception and the receptionists are spot on; the hotel is very dramatic looking, spotlessly clean and the bedrooms are fabulous. However, I will only say I would NOT eat there again. Waiting staff in both bar and restaurant are hopelessly under trained (if trained at all) and at the dinner prices being charged, it is just not on. Service absymal and food mediocre. Dessert lovely though. An hour and twenty minutes wait for a lunch of a bowl of soup more like baby food. Would NOT recommend anyone to eat there.

The Oar House Fish Restaurant
8 West Pier, North Co. Dublin, Howth, Dublin

Good God...I must admit to having an experience directly in contrast to all of the below. Poor starter, fish and chips which tasted like re-heats; one of us sent back an entire piece of uneaten fish with absolutely no comment from the wait staff. I would have to say that bar this visit, the one good thing about this restaurant normally is the friendly staff, always a feature of restaurants owned by this 'chain'. Would be my last choice in Howth...

The Bistro at Ella
7 Main Street, Howth, Howth, Dublin

Ate in Ella on Saturday night and as always was not disappointed. As a group of friends, we nearly always go to Ella for someone's birthday. The service is lovely and friendly; the manageress is great. All the meals were delicious; the duck perfect especially. It is by no means cheap but for a special occasion it is the place to go. The only drawback is if you are unfortunate to be put on the high tables but that said, it is, in our opinion, the best in Howth.

Montys of Kathmandu
28 Eustace Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Ate here last Thusday. Two of us shared a starter platter, the Nepalese meat masala with the dhall and peshwari naan. Absolutely delicious and more than enough for two. The service is attentive and friendly. Would highly recommend it and will return as soon as I can!

FIRE Restaurant and Lounge
Mansion House, Dawson Street, Dublin 2, Dawson Street, Dublin

Ate in Fire on Friday night with a group of ten. Very buzzy and it is a lovely room. I had the prawns and the politically incorrent veal, both very good. One of our party had the lamb skewers which are delicious. However the monkfish, which sounded lovely, was dry and tough. On mentioning this to the staff, the very nice manager was apologetic and offered a bottle of champagne to compensate. We found the service to be efficient and friendly and it suits a group as it might be a bit busy and noisy if there are just two of you.

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

The Trocadero is my absolute favourite restaurant. I only go there for special occasions, not just when you go out for a 'bite to eat'. Ate there last on the 29th September to celebrate 30th and last wedding anniversary and it was as close to perfect as it gets. The service is warm and welcoming. I would have to say that the risotto was edible but not great but however, the rack of lamb was bordering on magnificent. All the staff do a superb job.

Darwins
80 Aungier Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Ate in Darwin's yesterday evening before rushing down the road to see Long Day's Journey into Night. Tomato and mozzerella salad and the black pudding and apple starters gorgeous. We all had the steak and empty plates returned. I will definitely return and stay longer. Can't really rate atmosphere as it was early and quite empty but the service was good and friendly. Vegetarian menu would nearly tempt the most ardent carnivore!
