Missed the early bird but cocktails were still €5 so I had a couple of them with my dinner. The menu had a number of choices I liked but I found the starters a little expensive. I had bangers and mash as did my friend. We were happy with the portions and taste. The only critisism I have was that I had to ask for water three times which I think is excessive.

I went here on a Friday at 6pm. It was dead but luckily it filled up later. The food was nice enough. I had chicken wings to start and chicken fajitas for mains. The fajitas were nice but missing a little spice. My friend had the sirlion steak but found it a bit tough. Overall an average experience.

Simple but tasty food. I had bruschetta, lamb and brownie to finish. My partner had soup, chicken and cheesecake and not a complaint between us. Very happy with service which was quick and attentive.

Buenos Aires Grill
Unit 2 Castle Way, Golden Lane, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Disappointing! Myself and my husband went after work and ordered wings to share for starters and fillet steaks for mains. Our starters never came. The waitress forgot to input them on the computer. All we got was the bowl of water with lemon to clean our hands! We began on our mains but I found my steak under cooked for my liking. My husband did also but was able to eat his. I had lava cake for dessert to cheer me up but definitely a lacklustre dinner. We had a voucher as part payment of the meal but I would have hated to pay full price. Also I would have expected at least the dessert to be free considering the forgotten starter.

Russos
18 Dame Street,, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Let down by service.Went with a voucher but felt we were forgotten about. I had meatballs for starters which I found very small and dry. My partner had chicken wings which had a better portion. I had chicken wrapped in pancetta for mains and my partner had pasta and we were both happy. However when the plates were taken away the waitress asked did we want the dessert menu but never returned.I tried to get the attention of any waiting staff to order another drink but after so long I gave up and settled for the bill instead. If the staff were only a bit more attentive we would have spend more money which would be good for them and left happy.

Da Vincenzo
133 Upper Leeson Street, Ballsbridge, Dublin

Busy little restaurant. I had chicken wings for starters which were nice and also good size portion. For main I had pollo alla diavola which I found quite greasy as were the fries. I was dissapointed so I had to have dessert to cheer myself up. Good selection of desserts and I had choc fudge cake which was nice.My husband had bruscetta and seabass for mains. He was happy apart from the baileys chessecake didn't taste too much of baileys.

Tante Zoes
1 Crow Street, Temple Bar, Temple Bar, Dublin

Pleasant little restaurant. Myself and my husband went here early on saturday evening after being in town all day walking! I had wings for starters and my husband had the rissoles. Both were yummy. i had blackened chicken for mains and my husband had steak. We were both pleased with your food and the presentation. I would like to return to try dessert but the prices are a little high I think especially for the chicken dish.

Carlo's Restaurant
63-64 O'Connell Street, Dublin 1, City Centre North, Dublin

I had a voucher like many other reviewers for steak on the stone and two glasses of wine. I found the chips lovely (not too much salt) but the steak was a little stringy but tasty. I had chicken wings for starters which were ok but not that hot & spicy and chocolate cake for dessert which was nice. I found the service ok until we finished dinner and then tried to get the waitresses attention to order dessert. Overall seems ok for bit to eat and a chat but wouldn't rush back.

The Counter Suffolk Street
20 Suffolk Street, City Centre South, Dublin

Quiet on a Thursday evening. Went in with a couple of friends and were greeted with a clip board for our menu. Novel idea I thought and I put together my chicken burger with extras I like and with no fuss. Usually I get a burger and have to ask for no onions or no cheese etc and hope it will arrive like I asked but here its the norm. The only downside I could see was the choice of starters. On the menu chips, side salad were under the heading but to me they would be an accompanment to my burger!

Novo
Harry Street, St Stephens Green, Dublin

Relaxed but friendly suroundings. Went here during the week and found the place quite empty. Ordered mains of sirlion steak and chips which were very tasty. Steak was quite large and no fat to trim which was nice. Desserts were a bit if a let down. I had a brownie but I didn't like it but it. too many nuts and raisins for me. Overall it was a nice meal but the main highlight for me was the service. Also the toilets are a little odd. The toilets are split into cubicles with sinks and the men have 2 and women. Am I the only one who thinks it should be the other way around?

Great value early bird menu with lots of choice for mains. Would have 3 courses but we needed to go to a show nearby. We were waiting a while on a friend but the staff didn't push us to hurry which was nice. I had bruscetta and a burger for mains. While my friends had pasta and prawns. We were all happy with the experience.

Carluccio's Caffe
52 Dawson Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin

Never knew this place was here. First impressions the layout is quite basic like a canteen. The menu was quite large. I had bruscetta which was a bit pricey for what I got. Then pollo alla cacciatora which wasn't the prettiest dinner I have ever gotten but tasted nice. My friend had lamb which she enjoyed. ok for quick bite but nothing more.

Baan Thai (Ballsbridge)
16 Merrion Road, Dublin 4, Ballsbridge, Dublin

A large group of us went for lunch and all were happy. The thai red curry was a popular choice. It was hot and tasty. Plenty of rice was given for the table. The service was quick and efficent and prices very reasonable. No wonder the place was busy!

Brownes Steakhouse
The Plaza, Blanchardstown Village, Dublin 15, Blanchardstown, Dublin

There are a good choice of main courses - steak, fish, chicken etc. I like the steak on the stone but my favourite is chicken in a mushroom sauce. The staff are always friendly and very helpful. There are a couple of problems for me though, there are too many fish starters and the restaurant only has a wine license.

The Hairy Lemon Traditional Pub & Restaurant
Stephen Street Lower, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Never thought of eating here before but we were looking for something cheap and cheerful. I had a burger and chips which was filling and tasty. The only fault I would have was the tables. we were sitting as a group of four but the two tables were at different heights. Perhaps this is part of the charm??

The Clarendon Bar
32 Clarendon Street, City Centre South, Dublin

Sunday Lunch for €8.95 each! I had a cajun chicken burger and my friend had lasagne, chips and salad. We were both happy with the mains. The only thing I would mention is that the chips were a little greasy.

TriBeCa
65 Ranelagh Village, Dublin 6, Ranelagh, Dublin

Went for a birthday with a group. We were seated near the back so we had plenty of room and could hear each other. We had chicken wings to share between three of us for starter and we had plenty. I had a burger with chilli for mains. I asked for the chilli on the side. When it cam eout it was on the burger so I sent it back but it was no problem I had a new one within a few minutes with no fuss and an apology. Chilli was nice and chips yummy but I found the burger a bit tough. Overall we had a lovely night out.

Acapulco Restaurant
7 South Great Georges Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin

I went as part of a large group. We had a variety of food from burgers (not very mexican!!) to fahitas. The margaretas went down well around the table. Overall it was a pleasant experience. We were never rushed and no one had any complaints.

Il Vignardo
Beresford Hotel, 21 Store Street, City Centre North, IFSC, Dublin

I went here with party of 11 for lunch. The menu has pizza, pasta, salads and meat dishes. Something for everyone. I had chicken carractiota. It was very nice but I found the chips a bit oversalted. Everyone seemed to enjoy there meal. We sat and had coffees in the nice relaxed atmosphere. Overall an enjoyable experience but I found the prices a little on the high side for lunch. Definitely a treat!

Dandelion
St. Stephen's Green, St Stephens Green, Dublin

Saw a sign outside the door for two mains for the price of one, so I headed in with my friend. We shared a starter of chicken wings which we nice and spicy. We then both had burgers and chips. The chips were nice and thick. Overall very good value but the service was a little slow when ordering and settling the bill.

La Caverna Restaurant & Wine Bar
12 Fownes Street, Dublin 2, City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin

Went for an early bird on Sunday. Good value with two courses for €16.95. I had chicken wings which were nice enough and had lamb shank for mains. The lamb shank was in a rosemary and red wine gravy. I found it quite overpowering and it seemed to linger long after I left the restaurant. My partner enjoyed his beef lasagne but overall nothing to get excited about. We won't be returning again.

This place has a lot of choice on its a la carte menu.I has a chicken burger and the person with me had a beef burger. we both were happy with the quality of the food. We also thought the service was excellent.

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

I went as a group of six last wednesday. I found the tables to be a bit cramped. We opted for the early bird - 2 courses for €18. The only thing potatoes and chips are extra at €4!! We ordered the mains from the early bird but where not given the early bird dessert menu. Overall the service was quite slow. Won't be going here again even though the food was nice.

Brasserie Sixty6
66/67 Great South Georges Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin

Very dark. I could barely see my food. Obviously others thought so as well as they turned up the lights after a while. Uni-sex toilets who ever thought they were a good idea? Food nice enough. Two of us had steak and chips (a bit too salty) and my other friend had bangers and mash. We were happy enough with the food but the prices stopped us from getting a dessert.

De Brúns
Ashleigh Centre, Main Street, Castleknock, Dublin

My partner and I went very soon after this restaurant opened. The atmosphere is nice and more formal than other restaurants nearby. We had beef fillets and chicken. The beef was lovely while the chicken was a little plain for me.I had dessert to cheer myself up. The manager was very good asking people for their opinions. They obviously listened as the prices have come down since they opened.

Kitchen
3 South Anne Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Went here last night. Very busy with the good weather. The food was nice. My friends both had pasta and were impressed. I had lamb cutlets, but was only given two. Is the standard not three. For €23 I was still hungry and a bit let down!

Captain America's Cookhouse And Bar
44 Grafton Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Nothing too exciting!! Upmarket burgers compared to nearby Burger King and McDonalds. The best upside of this place has to be the large range of cocktails.

Toscana City Centre
3 Cork Hill, Dame Street (opposite Dublin Castle), Dublin City Centre, Dublin 2, Temple Bar, Dublin

Nothing spectacular! I went on a bank holiday Sunday and found our table to be quite tight. There were only three of us at a table for four. But I doubt four would fit! We all had different starters and mains. Bruschetta was a bit soggy, chicken wings very messy and not that filling. Meatballs were ok but the sauce was not as hot as I expected. Our mains were nothing exciting either. Flavours were a bit lacking. Disappointing for an Italian.

The Grand Central Cafe Bar
O'Connell Street, O'Connell St, Dublin

The food in here is quite nice for your pub grub. After shopping it is much nicer than the burger king option. There is a couple of things though, they make you pay for your drinks and food separately which is a bit annoying and high stools are the main seating areas.

D One
North Wall Quay, IFSC, City Centre North, Dublin

We went as a group of ten to this restaurant for lunch. I had the steak sandwich which was filling and tasty. Everyone in the group were pleased with their dishes. Which led me to wonder why this place was so quiet.

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

Went here for a romantic meal on Saturday night. We were both impressed by the food and service. The staff were very attentive. The atmosphere of the mansion house is what makes this restaurant stand out. It was full on Saturday but with different floor levels and floaty dividers the place felt more intimate. The music was slightly too loud though.

Chatham Brasserie
Chatham Street, City Centre South, Dublin

I found the menu didn't have a large variety of main courses. I also think some of the courses are overpriced for what they are. On saying that if you liked something on the menu the food was of good quality.

The Alamo Restaurant
22 Temple Bar, Temple Bar, Dublin

I went here on saturday night and there were people walking in to get a table. Not the best sign for a Saturday night. I found the food average. I had chicken mexicano but this was in taste and presentaion quite bland. Also the bar behind me was making crushed ice, so try and get a table further away.

ely bar & brasserie
CHQ Building, Georges Dock, Dublin 1, City Centre, IFSC, Dublin

I went here for lunch but the service was slow. As it caters for lunches it should appreciate people only have an hour. The food was lovely. Perhaps afterwork would be a better time to check this place out.

The Norseman Bar & Restaurant

This pub is nice and airy upstairs but the food isn't the best. My friend and I got some food here but were not that impressed with the blandness of the food. Overall it was fine but not something to rush back for.

Hard Rock Cafe
12 Fleet Street, Dublin 2, City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin

This is what you would expect of a chain of Hard Rocks across the world. It is tasty for food but the drinks are a bit watered down. My vodka and white was mostly water.

Cheap and cheerful. I hadn't booked a table so we were seated near the front temple bar entrance. Food fine but the desserts had to come from next door through the rain to get to get to us. A bit off putting.

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

I have always had good experiences here. The staff are friendly and quick. The portions are quite good. The only downfall is for tables of two they can be very close together.

Cactus Jacks (Middle Abbey St)
Millennium Walkway, Middle Abbey Street, City Centre North, Italian Quarter, Dublin

This had a wide ranging menu. I had a lovely fillet steak and proper chips while me friend went for the Mexican Fajitas. Both of were extremely full and happy leaving here. Also we were not rushed along when we were finished your meals.

Ukiyo
7-9 Exchequer Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Pleasantly surprised. Luckily we had just 8 people going for dinner. If there is 9 or more we would have to go for the set menu and have at least 2 courses for ^30. Menu selection isn't the best but ok. The best bit was after dinner we went down to our private karaoke room and had a ball!
