I must say, I read reviews and wonder do people think they are professionals at this. Do they get a special buzz out of causing Restaurants problems. I am not a Professional at this, I just eat out a lot with my work. I am a customer. No more, No less. I waited for 45 minutes for a table here last night, there was a que out the door, I have not seen that is a long time. The lady on the desk was exceptional, a full restaurant, buzzing and hopping, and she was polite, calm and very friendly, "talk a walk to the pub or go for a stroll for about 40 minutes and Ill have a lovely table for you" she said. We did just that and when we returned, YES she have a lovely table. The Restaurant was hopping, Irish music on in the background, beautiful old wooden walls, interesting bric-a-brac on the shelves. Amazing!! The service was friendly, but genuinely friendly, no false smiles, staff seem to be happy to work here. The food, well, I had Chicken Wings and they were to die for, crisp, well cooked in a beautiful bbq sauce, my partner had pate and was wowwed. I had the Blackened Cajun Chicken which was tasty, moist and cooked to perfection, and my partner had the Beef Ireland which I was told was the best ever tasted. The dressing on my side salad was truely great. The brown bread is amazing, and I was allowed to buy a loaf for a mere 3.50. Here in the middle of Temple Bar is a restaurant I seemed to have missed all this time. Well worth a visit. Great Job.

Bits and Pizzas
15 Patrick Street, Dun Laoghaire, Dun Laoghaire, Dublin

I must say, I read reviews and wonder do people think they are professionals at this. Do they get a special buzz out of causing Restaurants problems. I am not a Professional at this, I just eat out a lot with my work. I am a customer. No more, No less. I ate here 15 years ago, and decided to drop in again the other day. The best, I mean the best Pizza in town, great staff and great service. I talk about the customer expectations when I write reviews, where they want more than is on offer. I had an expectation when I arrived and it was far over shadowed by the reality of my expectation. This is great restaurant. Cheap and Cheerful and Friendly. Thanks for a great night.

Purple Ocean Restaurant
St Michael's Pier, Dun Laoghaire, Dublin

I must say, I read reviews and wonder do people think they are professionals at this. Do they get a special buzz out of causing Restaurants problems. I am not a Professional at this, I just eat out a lot with my work. I am a customer. No more, No less. I have eaten here a few times with business, I dined here the other day, the one thing that I keep wondering is, how do they do what they do so cheap. Or are we being ripped off by other Restaurants. The decor here is to die for, the service is impeccable, I met the owner the last visit who is also the Executive Chef, what a Gentleman. One can see from his own attention to detail, why the staff are so pleasant. The food is so good, Fine Dine at discount prices.I had the Salmon Cakes to start and the Rossini for mains. Wow! The Restaurant was not busy, and it is a shame, because it is seriously very good. Keep up the great work Purple Ocean.
