Went here with some friends from college, what a little gem. The food was amazing, wine out of this world, deserts fab and the atmosphere is great. It felt like I was away on holiday in a hot country for the couple of hours we spent there, we did not want to leave. Going again this Saturday. Not one to be missed.

Went with my boyfriend for some dinner before we went to the Olympia, we where told on entering that we only had the table for an hour and a half and when I looked a bit taken back I was abruptly informed that I would have been told this on the phone at the time of my booking. When I advised that I booked through menu pages I was advised that they where aware of this and they should have told me. Either way as per usual food was really great. Although not somewhere you go for a romantic dinner, myself and my boyfriend where closer to the couple at the next table than we where to each other. Quite uncomfortable. We have 4 people waiting in us and had to scream if we wanted drinks. I do love this place, but you need to go with a large group and be in the mind frame.....that it is what it is. Great Food, fab drinks menu, service not great, busy, packed and loud.

Met up with two girlfriends here to catch up, ideal place, really really nice bar, decor was lovely, great service and friendly athmosphere. Music was just the right level to chat and really relaxed. Food was good and I found it good value. Would defo go back for a night with the girls.

The Porterhouse (Central)
45-47 Nassau Street, City Centre South, Dublin

Love the Porter House not matter which one it is, however the atmosphere was not as good as the others. The place just seems grubby, could do with a make over. Food however was typical porter house food, cheap, cheerful and tasty. Best pub food you can get.

The Orchid Chinese Restaurant
12 New Street, Malahide, Malahide, Dublin

Great little place, I have been here a few times over the years, small little place that can get quite busy, early bird is great value and the food is really good. Service is not great when they are busy. I have enjoyed a quite dinner for two and also had a couple of birthday parties out here. Enjoyed myself every time.

Wans Garden Chinese Restaurant
191 Howth Road, Clontarf, Killester, Dublin

I havent eaten in here in years, however it does not appear to have changed, over priced, food was no better than most chinese resturants. It is a lovely resturant however.

Gourmet Burger Kitchen (GBK Swords)
Pavillion Shopping Centre, Malahide Road, Swords, Dublin

Went here midweek one evening with 3 other girlfriends for a bite and a catch up. Been there a couple of times before. However the idea of the place seems to be better than the food itself. There was to much going on with the burgers, unable to eat them without and aid of a knife and fork and ended giving up half way through. The bill was quite expensive for the 4 of us for a burger. I got the chicken satay and the chicken fillet appeared to be deep fried, that was not so tasty.

Little Caesars Pizza (City Centre)
5 Balfe Street, Near Westbury Hotel, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Great little place, I had lunch in here one day on my lunch hour. Lovely lunch menu with starter and main, service was quick, just what you need on your lunch hour. Small place upstairs, however plently more room downstairs for larger parties. I would really recommend here if you are looking for a quick tasty bite.

Noble House
17 Dame Street, City Centre South, Dublin

I had a very unpleasent experience here, six of us went out for my Dads birthday. The service was the worst I ever had. Several of us had a the Yuk Sung which was nice, we all had different main courses, they all tasted and looked the same. I order the green curry which should be hot, however when I said this to the manager I was told that all the dishes are served at a medium level and if you want it more spicy you need to request it. It DID NOT say this anywhere on the menu. We where left waiting every time for drinks, no one came near the table to see if we need anything, we had to leave our table to ask for drinks at one point. Very overpriced at the end.

Siam Thai (Malahide)
1 The Green, North Dublin, Malahide, Dublin

Lovely meal here, lovely resturant, food was fantastic. Service was funny however, greeted by a lovely hostess when we arrived however after that it all went down hill. However I would recommend this place, it would be lovely for a date.

The Upper Deck duplicate
Harbour Road, Above the Waterside Pub, Howth, Dublin

Really Really Great Mexican food, uncomfortable little place though. Chairs and the noise just make you want to get out of there quickly. Early bird menu is very reasonable for the portion sizes.

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

Food was good the Atmosphere and Services is fantasic. Really stunning restaurant. I went with a group of friends I went to college with and they allowed us to sit and the table for as long as we liked (granted it wasnt that busy) and the waiter looked after our drinks orders. This happened on two other occassions and is what brought me back each time. Really nice for a bite and good chat with friends.Early bird is good value

The Laurels (Clondalkin)
Main Street, Clondalkin, Dublin

Great Pub to go to, always a great atmosphere. Huge portions. Quality for the food has gone down since before xmas, but before that it was always good. I hope it improves again as it is a great spot. Love the chicken slivers with pepper sauce.
