Went to E&C for breakfast today, we arrived just after 8 and it was pretty empty, the waitress was very friendly and let us pick where we wanted to sit. I went for the scrambled eggs and toast and it was gorgeous, really creamy and tasty and the bread was really thick and yummy (though a little cold) and Orange Juice. My friend had the ‘california’ (I think) special, which was OJ, coffe/tea, French toast, bacon, scrambled eggs and some kind of potato cubes. Which looked amazing. It’s not cheap - the total was 17.50 but it’s one of the best breakfasts I’ve ever had in Dublin City. Would highly recommend for a lazy breakfast with the paper and some great food.

I live near this restaurant and eat there a lot. I have to agree that they never have enough staff, but it's a lovely relaxed restaurant and the food is amazing, with really big portions. The levels have slipped recently though and I have to agree that the risotto is terrible but their pastas are to die for and they will often make dishes for you off the menu which I love. Their desserts aren't great but their tirimasu is to die for. Think they could do with an early bird menu.

Chai Yo
100 Lower Baggot street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Got a take away from here last week. When I called in to collect it the man didn't come off the phone at all, he just pushed a bag in my direction, took my money and gave me change without even looking at me! thought it was very rude, it isn't a massive thing to put somebody on hold and deal with a customer or I was happy to wait until he was finished with his conversation. Also, I ordered a tofu pad thai, and there was not a single piece of Tofu. The food was fine but would not go back.

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

Went on a busy Saturday night. Had reserved a table but they couldn't find the booking and so got stuck with a bit of an iffy table. It was very busy and dinner felt very rushed. The food was ok, nowhere near as it used to be. I had the pizza which was rubbery and a bit bland and the ice cream sunday is pitiful in comparision to what they used to serve. The staff were friendly but had to ask for water, sauce, the bill etc. twice which was annoying. It used to be a lovely restaurant but feel it's really pandered to the hen/stag crowd and not nearly as comfortable as a result. Wouldn't be pushed about going back.

Port House Pintxo
12 Eustace Street, Dublin 2, Temple Bar, Dublin

Went here for an after work bite. The food is tasty and the portions very generous for tapas. Staff were not overly friendly but efficient. It's very dark inside but quite nice. They didn't have any house wine at all which I didn't understand. That said they have an extensive (if badly laid out) wine list.

Milano (Dawson Street)
38 Dawson Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin

I should start by saying that I love Milano's pizza, and was not disappointed with the food. However we were seated right beside a kitchenette and staff that didn't seem to be on duty just kept making themselves tea and coffee at the counter right beside us. It was really off putting, I felt like I was in a canteen. The staff are very friendly but the place was hugely understaffed and we were waiting ages just to place an order. I think it has gone downhill over the last year or so.

Thai Orchid (Dublin)
7 Westmoreland Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Went here for dinner with a friend and wasn't overly impressed. We went for the 17.95 early bird (it says 3 courses but it's really 2 plus tea and coffee). My food was nice but nothing fantastic. The wine was lovely and reasonably priced. We shared a (massive) chocolate cake for dessert. The service was friendly and promt but wasn't crazy about the place. In my opinion there are far better thai restaurants in Dublin

Al Muretto (Mayo)
Tucker Street, Castlebar, Castlebar, Mayo

Had dinner here on Saturday night. It was fantastic, by far the best restaurant in Castlebar. The staff are frienly but not overly fussy. Had the bruschetta to start, a tomato pasta (the best I've had in ages) and home made proper italian ice cream for dessert. Highly recommend.

Eddie Rockets (South Annes Street)
7 South Annes Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

With Eddie Rockets you know what you're getting. It's in a nice area of Dublin and the service is quick and attentive. They are still overpriced for what you get but they have a deal on where you can get fries and a drink for 3euro onto the price of a burger which is pretty good.

Il Caffe di Napoli
41 Westland Row, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Ate here for lunch today. It was really really busy and we were sat very close to the next table. The place is very small but has a nice atmosphere. The staff were prompt taking our order but we didn’t see much of them after that – though it was very busy. I had the mushroom pizza and it was amazing. I loved it. It was 10.50 for a 12inch. Would definitely go back some evening to chill and have some wine. Would recommend.

Jaipur Restaurant (George's Street)
41 South Great Georges Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin

I had never had Inidan food before so may not be the best reviewer. But here goes: Went for the two course early bird (20euro). It was nice but I wasn't mad about it, my dinner guest loved it though. He had the korma and loved it. He had beer and I had the pinot noir and it was lovely. We didn't have dessert but they looked great. The building is fabulous and the staff very attentive. One thing I noted was that the toilets were up a spiral staircase and would not be accessible for everyone. It seems like a special occasion kind of place.

Lemon Jelly Cafe
Millennium Walkway, Jervis Street, Italian Quarter, Dublin

This is my favourite of all the pancake shops in dublin because it's lovely and roomy and the staff are very friendly. I think it's still a little over prices for what you get and they could do some better deals. The food is good but it takes ages!

Koh
6-7 Jervis Street, Millennium Walkway, Dublin 1, City Centre, Italian Quarter, Dublin

Had lunch there on Sunday. They do a really good lunch deal where a main course is 10euro. It's very dark but it's the kind of place you can really chill out. Have never been in the main restaurant but the front bar is lovely and they have free wifi. The desserts aren't great but the food is fab.

Saba
26-28 Clarendon Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

I go to this restaurant fairly often. The food is really nice and they do a great early bird. The service is a bit iffy and I tend to stay away from it at weekends as it gets quite a 'trendy' (pretentious) crowd!
