Yamamori Noodles restaurant
71-72 South Great Georges Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin, Area Code: Dublin 2
Reviewed 21st October 2007 ( visited 20th October 2007 )Impressed! Have been meaning 2 go here 4 a while. Quite similar 2 another Japanese place in town but less casual+no dreaded benches! Got lovely asparagus +salmom sashimi 2 start, then yamamori yaki soba4 main. Both fab. Good value2. Huge portions. Cool funky crowd. Will be returning :)
137 Rathmines Road, Dublin 6 , South Dublin, Rathmines, Dublin, Area Code: Dublin 6
Reviewed 27th September 2010 ( visited 26th September 2010 )have been here before but WON'T come back again. has gone way downhill since opening. went as a group of 3 girls. 2 of us left behind half our burgers. they were badly undercooked. apparently if u dont specify how u like it done it comes pink+bloody. not sure how safe that is with mince met.why didnt the waiter ask us how we'd like it??? i got the tladi. 12.50 so expensive!!! the menu said smoked applewood cheese, apple and jo relish. i presumed the apple would b in the relish, chopped up tiny. but no ....3 slices of apple were in the burger all warm and disgusting! i agree with the below review. i took out the majority of my lettuce too. they could at least chop it up.i made a mini salad on the side with all the excess tomato and onion(which also could have been chopped up)... however the saving grace of this place is their sweet potato fries. absolutely delish. used the red spicy sauce on the table but had to put it on a napkin as no plates were supplied.cool decor though.
Victoria Asian Cuisine
5A The Cresent, South Co. Dublin , Monkstown, Dublin
Great quality food. Portions large. Service very attentive. Will be back. \n\nHowever, the MUSIC needs to be updated badly. Corrs and Celine Dion anyone?
66/67 Great South Georges Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin
Great place. Come here often for brunch & dinner. Suitable for groups & couples alike!
The Chop House Gastro Pub
2 Shelbourne Road, City Centre South, Dublin
I would recommend this place for everything but the atmosphere. Perhaps it was just the night I went (end of Nov, before the Xmas rush) but it seemed quiet, cold and clinical, despite the Xmas decorations, twinkling lights etc. Food is good restaurant quality. Not pub grub at all.
Pacifico Restaurant & Grill
Marine Court, The Green, Malahide, Malahide, Dublin
EXCELLENT. Went here 4 the 1st time in early May and have been twice since in the last month!!! Food is so tasty, fresh and flavourful. Really good quality. Nice servers also. Best Mexican place in Dublin by far.
Kudos Restaurant (IFSC)
Clarion Hotel Dublin, IFSC, City Centre North, Dublin
Bad experience. Awful rushed hap- hazard atmosphere due to the location beside a door which kept opening and closing, allowing cold wind to pour in and beside a TV where a loud match was being aired. Not a relaxing restaurant vibe at all. Also very poor staffing levels and training... Used voucher which SHOULD HAVE allowed us to choose from a set menu but a lot of the choices were unfortunately unavailable. e.g We were shown 3 desserts on the menu and told there was no choice as there was only one available. Pretty poor standand all round.
Le Bon Crubeen
81-82 Talbot Street, Dublin 1, City Centre North, Dublin
Lovely food. Fun friendly chatty service byt he waiters and/or owners. Good value. Decor could be better-a little dark and dreary. Will return for sure!
Vanilla Pod Restaurant
Headfort Arms Hotel, Kells, Meath
Had an enjoyable meal here after Christmas, while staying in the hotel next door. Excellent service, value for money and atmosphere. Food was mostly hit but sometimes miss in our party of 8 girls. The duck confit was delicious except for the overpowering marmalade-like sauce. The crab legs also were overpowered by a creamy sauce. Less is more!!! Would recommend though.
12/13 South Great Georges Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
Great food but everything else poor. Went here using the menupages deal. The deal had said you could have ANY starter, ANY main course etc but really, you had to choose from a set menu. When we brought this to their attention, they said they ''would make their adds clearer in future''. Not really good enough, I think. The place was crazy busy with not half enough staff and despite the girls trying their best, we were left waiting a long time, on numerous occasions. ie when we were given our menus, we had to wait 15mins to order. Once we ordered, our food took 45mins! The cocktails were so strong, they were undrinkable, despite me asking for more juice in it. Asked for water a few times and it was forgotten. The food was extremely tasty and beutifully presented so fair play to the kitchen but these service negatives made for a chaotic unrelaxing night out. Won't be back.
Bits and Pizzas
15 Patrick Street, Dun Laoghaire, Dun Laoghaire, Dublin
Lovely place, if a little hard to find! very good, kind, efficient service from the staff. Ate here last night, as a table for four, with my 30euro voucher from menupoints. As a gang, we enjoyed chicken skewers, bruschetta, calzone, pizzas, lasagne, banoffee, cheesecake and wine. Loved all of it. Very pleasant place. Might spend another 3000 menupoints on another visit!!! :)
Restaurant Ten Fourteen
324 Clontarf Road, Clontarf, Dublin
The food is very ordinary- service great though. won't be back.
58 Grand Canal Street, Dublin 4, City Centre South, Dublin
Love the pizza! got Bianca and boyf got Hero. both thoroughly enjoyed. will definitely b back. We booked-much advised. Qs crazy! only negative is the value. The starter we got was average and pricey. it was mozzarella balls and very small for the dear price of 8.50.
26 Blooms Lane , Lower Ormond Quay, City Centre North, Italian Quarter, Dublin
Lovely Authentic Italian Experience!!! all waiters speaking Italian (Buongiorno, Grazie, etc)! Met my friend 4 lunch so didnt order much. had a cafelatte with a pear, goat's cheese, honey and walnut salad. while my friend enjoyed a seafood risotto.good choice on the menu and will definitely be back. just found out there is one in IFSC too!
Main Street, Maynooth, Maynooth, Kildare
Lovely place. got a take away of 1starter, 2naans, 2mains+2rices+and spent 35euro.staff extremely kind and attentive.2 bottles of cobra thrown in 4free! they reccomended that next time we should spend 40 euro and have the deal where u get2 3course dinners+ a bottle of wine. I would agree that they could make things a bit spicier but everything very tasty. it was a sunday at 7 when we called in 2 collect our food and the restaurant was empty, but i can imagine it would be nice on a busy night.
South George's Street, Dublin, City Centre South, Dublin
AWFUL! shocked at the good reviews.got 3 bites and 2 out of 3 were disgusting. the chicken wings were grand but the cod brandad and duck beef sandwich were terrible. the former being very bland and the latter tasted like sick. horrendous.the service was bad too. rude, unproffessional, and when we asked for the bill it took 30 mins, before we got it. we also were never asked if we were enjoying the food. got 3 starters then, 2 crab mayonaise and 1 chorizo,bean minestrone which were actually a big improvement, in fairness.value was good but i wouldnt get the steaks as they are approx 27 euro and you apparently have to cook it yourself on the stone at the table and I personally dont come out to dine, to end up cooking.WON'T BE BACK!
Frankies Italian Bar and Grill
42 Temple Bar Square, Temple Bar, Dublin

La Mere Zou
22 St Stephens Green, Dublin , City Centre South, Dublin
horrible way to treat customers. went 4 early bird. loved the food and atmosphere but the staff practically threw us out at the end. we just paid the bill, after lovely starter, main course and desert each and they said we better leave now as there were other ppl here 4 r table. i had about 2 mouthfuls of wine left and they proceeded 2 come over twice more in the next 3 minutes. very annoyed. we had just spent around 90 quid and we were pretty much escorted off the permises. awful.complained in the restaurant and rang to complain once i arrived home also. no apology offered.shocking!!!
Diwali Indian Restaurant
Unit 1, Castle House, South Great Georges Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
nice restaurant. staff really lovely. they go out of their way 2do their absolute best to serve customers kindly and generously. yummy korma and mango lassi. usually too quiet though.... so u feel like u have 2 whisper!
The Blackboard Bistro
The Basement, 4 Clare Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
mixed thoughts on this place. rubbish atmosphere. so quiet and a little cold both in temperature and ambience. it tries to be charming and quaint but doesnt quite succeed. i did find the flavours delicious though! i really enjoyed my haddock with salsa. gnocchi was delicious also.my boyfriend did not like his steak and found it fatty and poor quality.
26-28 Clarendon Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
had hake, which i usually love. was served in a banana leaf. gorgeous presentation but tasted bland and not fresh. most of our group disatisfied with their dishes. wife had prawn noodles. only had 4 prawns. too sweet also. chocolate biscuit cake beautiful but tiny.
Luigi Malones Restaurant
5/6 Cecilia Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin
average. nice food but nothing extraordinary. got piping hot delicious gambas al allijo for starters, a beautiful fillet mignon for main with boring sides...a dissappointing toblerone cheesecake for desert. it was nothing like toblerone-not very creamy,a small portion and for over 7 euro, not good value. service rude at times. water not topped up. wont come back.so many better places in dublin. this 1 purely for the tourists.
45 South William Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
lovely surroundings, gorgeous tables, plates etc. wanted to know where they got their stuff. food very well cooked. meat so tender. got harira soup and chicken couscous. both very tasty.however,some minor complaints.... staff badly trained. lack of communication between them.they were very pleasant so i dont blame them , just management. also it was very cold where we were situated near the door. the bar was badly stocked also. no vodka or bacardi. would return. great value for food. not so much for drinks.... 6.50 for a malibu , then 3.00 for a coke. scandalous!
5 Crow Street (Next to Foggy Dew Pub), Dublin 2 , City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin
horrendous experience...here with a group of 12 ppl. barely enough space to budge. waited 40 mins for starters, then another 40 mins for the mains. which were bad. ordered bruschetta, tasteless with no olive oil. steak was cold and pepper sauce with it was horrible. their sole objective was to keep us filled up with wine for the evening, obviously the wine has a higher mark up.
232 Merrion Road, Dublin 4, Ballsbridge, Dublin
not a great atmosphere. amazing cakes! highly reccommend the lemon meringue pie!!!!
Canal Bank Cafe
146 Upper Leeson Street, Dublin 4, Ballsbridge, Dublin
couldnt agree more with the reviewer just below. although the food is good, i wont be returning as the floor staff are awful. they were extremely blase, rude and just enjoying each others company. ignoring the customers like they were a nuisance to be put up with. the maitre d, tried to sit us a a horrible dark window seat, clearly to make the place look full but we declined. they tried the same trick with the customers after us, then tutted as soon as those people declined it too. WE CAN SEE YOU! felt very unwelcome. the staff ate their dinner beside us in the main restaurant. quite unproffessional.
Bella Cuba Restaurant
11 Ballsbridge Terrace, Ballsbridge, Dublin
good food but a bit ...Faulty Towers! went on a monday night so maybe thats why! you go up a tiny narrow stairs and the toilets are on the left.very poky! once we were seated the waiter began to tell us everything they didnt have in stock!anyway, had the early bird. gr8 value. 2 courses 17euro. 20 if u add a beer.i started with plantains and guac, while my boyf had patatas bravas. both delightful. then for the mains,we opted for chicken chorizo and steak with chimichuri. again both so tasty and interesting.very well cooked too. would go again.
13 Dame Court, Dublin, City Centre South, Dublin
What a find! this is a great place for both brunch and dinner. such a decadent atmosphere! ...champagne popping in the morning--what Recession???!!! even tho myself and my boyf only spent 25 euro.service lovely. food fab.love the quesadillas!
The Exchange Restaurant and Cocktail Bar
The Westin Dublin, At College Green, Westmoreland Street, City Centre South, Dublin

Roly Saul The Restaurant
The Mill House, Dundrum Town Centre, Dublin 14, Dundrum, Dublin
lovley setting overloooking the fountain. had seafood chowder 2 start which was ok. the boyf had a delicious chicken salad. my main was fish and chips. this was nice but accompanied by old, hard,reheated pea puree. ive had pea puree before and it was beautiful. boyf hated his burger. 2 many herbs. sometimes simple flavours can be better. disappointing.thought the service was good actually, couldnt agree with other reviewers on that one.
Main Street, Celbridge, Kildare
only alright. average at best. not a great place at all. poor presentaion. ate here fri night for early bird ,3 courses. pate was whipped +looked like a desert!

Harrys Kitchen Restaurant
22, Dawson Street, Dublin
came here with my boyfriend on thurs eve.had a nice meal in general. the brie and the cava fish, off the early bird menu was really good but the variety could have been better. i guess thats what u shud expect from an early bird. the restaurant is right on the st which makes it not very cosy. id say it wud be gr8 for lunch
1 St Andrews Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
ate here monday night with my friend and her baby. the staff were so accommodating, friendly and nice. we had the TOWER! u get a basket of bread and 6 tapas. really gr8 because u get 2 try things u wouldnt normally order.i have been to salamanca so many times b4 but this was a nice change. leaves plenty of room on the table 2! this and a lovely argentinian wine was only 49 quid. really nice evening!
Doheny and Nesbitt
5 Baggot Street Lower, Baggot Street, Dublin
went for lunch here 2day with a few friends. the atmosphere was lovely. we sat in a snug! the waiter was a nice old man. really laid back. the food was only ok tho. i ordered a baked potato with bacon and cheese. it was around 3 potatoes with just cheese and rashers on top separate but not melted in to the potaotes at all. lil bit of effort guys!
Wicklow Street, City Centre South, Dublin
Went to Exchequer st Leon. Really lovely place. Furniture is so pretty. All different antique tables and chairs with massive chandeliers. Went with 2 of my girlfriends, but would be a perfect place for a romantic date. Got the seafood risotto and my 2 friends got the chicken farfalle. All nice with generous portions. I got the chocolate fondant for after which was gorgeous. Only complaint is expensive wine. Food reasonably priced. Must go for the pastries and coffee next time :)

The Studio Cafe
54 Rathfarnham Village, Rathfarnham, Rathfarnham, Dublin
Service nice and personal. Very pleasant. Went on pancake Tuesday. Really enjoyed it. Tables a little close to each other though.
Kilmacanogue, Bray, Bray, Wicklow
Ate in the conservatory, which was lovely. Got risotto. It was nice for the first 3 bites, then the taste was just far too strong and overwhelming. Bit sickening to be honest. Service not great. Unfriendly waitresses. Adore the surroundings though :)
Farm Restaurant (Dawson Street)
3 Dawson Street, Dublin 2, Dawson Street, Dublin
Shocked at the awful reviews here! My friend and I went on a Tues for lunch... So maybe it was good because it was so quiet. We got spaghetti bolognese and the burger with salad, followed by the chocolate souffle to share. All very tasty! The decor was cool too; white, silver and soft lime green. Real pure, modern and organic looking. They had plants on each table. Nice touch! service was good too. Had no problems!
P McCormack & Sons
67 Mountown Lower, Monkstown, Dublin
had a gorgeous burger here! love the conservatory area with the beautiful mosaics. very nice 4 local casual grub
Meeting House Square, Temple Bar, Dublin
Went here for 1 yr anniversary dinner. Enjoyed it a lot! Staff extremely pleasant. We sat near the kitchen and saw the chefs preparing and perfecting the food! Got the goats cheese to start. Delish! The peanuts, figs etc worked so well. Lapped it up! Would recommend. Scallops for main. Lovely but portion and price way too much, though. 29 euro. Only ate half of it. Next time I’ll ask for a half portion maybe? Or go for 2 starters? Love the decor, especially the oversized hanging baskets. Ceiling is horrible though! Sort it out.
Powerscourt Hotel Restaurant & Spa, Powerscourt, Wicklow
Was really great. Went for Christmas party so twas a set menu of 8 courses! Foie gras and pheasant were the best parts. Took 4 hrs to eat everything! We were in a function room, so not much atmosphere. No music or anything.

Dundrum Shopping Centre, Dublin 14, Dundrum, Dublin
Lovely, authentic yet chic and modern. Went with a work friend. Both ordered pizzas. Pollo con funghi and polla ad astra. Both fab! Got choc sundae and choc fudge cake with tea and coffee after. Nice too. But service VERY BAD! Kept having to ask people twice or 3 times for water, bill etc. That said, I would still go again. So handy for pre cinema quality food.
Elephant & Castle
18/19 Temple Bar, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
wont be back again. this place is totally over rated. difficult to get a table.they dont take bookings for table for 2. was placed in the middle of the floor and felt just in the way of the waiters.just didnt feel welcome. chicken wings just as nice in another place in temple bar. purely for tourists
L'Officina by Dunne And Crescenzi (Dundrum)
Dundrum Shopping Centre, Dublin 14, Dundrum, Dublin
Nice place. Quite authentic. My mom is a big fan and goes here all the time for the antipasto. I ordered the gnocchi once though and it was really disgusting!!! Sorry.
Wagamama - Stephen's Green
St Stephen's Green Centre, South King St, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
Do like this place. Bench seating quite annoying tho. Got duck gouva as starter. YUM. I liked wot I ordered4 main (Yaki Soba- Teppan-fried ramen noodles with egg, chicken, shrimps, onions, green and red peppers, bean sprouts and spring onions. garnished with sesame seeds, fried shallots and red ginger). But my boyf wz not impressed with his (Chicken Ramen- Soup and noodles topped with slices of grilled chicken breast, seasonal greens, menma and spring onions). Got an absolutely gorgeous desert. (White Chocolate & Ginger Cheesecake- Creamy baked white chocolate and ginger cheesecake on a crunchy biscuit base, served with a candied orange compote and a lightly spiced chilli-ginger toffee sauce)! Divine! Might even come bk just 4 that!
137 Rathmines Road, Dublin 6 , South Dublin, Rathmines, Dublin
have been here before but WON'T come back again. has gone way downhill since opening. went as a group of 3 girls. 2 of us left behind half our burgers. they were badly undercooked. apparently if u dont specify how u like it done it comes pink+bloody. not sure how safe that is with mince met.why didnt the waiter ask us how we'd like it??? i got the tladi. 12.50 so expensive!!! the menu said smoked applewood cheese, apple and jo relish. i presumed the apple would b in the relish, chopped up tiny. but no ....3 slices of apple were in the burger all warm and disgusting! i agree with the below review. i took out the majority of my lettuce too. they could at least chop it up.i made a mini salad on the side with all the excess tomato and onion(which also could have been chopped up)... however the saving grace of this place is their sweet potato fries. absolutely delish. used the red spicy sauce on the table but had to put it on a napkin as no plates were supplied.cool decor though.
Kill Avenue, Kill O’The Grange, Dun Laoghaire, Dublin
Went here one evening randomly. Good 4 pub grub. It has to be said. Ate a chicken burger. Their famous spiced diced potatoes are gorgeous! Service not great. Very unenthusiastic staff.
FIRE Restaurant and Lounge
Mansion House, Dawson Street, Dublin 2, Dawson Street, Dublin
I absolutely LOVE this place. Have been 4 special occasions a few times. Always telling ppl about it! Restaurant is fabulous. Beautiful interesting architecture. Suede walls, need I say more! Food is divine. Oh and the wood fired prawns, deep fried brie + cheesecake r my fave. Staff dancing to attention! Great place.
Unit 4 Old River House, Templeogue, Dublin
Went here with my parents on sat nite. The place was really busy! Great lively atmosphere!.... BUT SOooooooooooo NOISY. Could hardly hear what each other were saying.food+wine very nice+good quality. Staff really helpful, funny+friendly...especially the owner, who was not2 busy give clients his full attention. Decent value. Had gorgeous seafood linguine. Would also recommend the tiramisu. Would go again IF they sort out the acoustics problems. PERHAPS SOME CURTAINS, CUSHIONS +OTHER SOFT FURNISHINGS WOULD HELP???
