33 Harcourt Street, Dublin, City Centre South, Dublin
One of the best meals I've had in a long time, the hake was cooked to perfection. Excellent service and a relaxed ambience made for a perfect evening with friends
The Halfway House
Walkinstown Road, Walkinstown, Dublin
Had the carvery here on a Sunday afternoon. Was okay but wouldn't hurry back just for it.

Le Bon Crubeen
81-82 Talbot Street, Dublin 1, City Centre North, Dublin
I was very impressed with this restaurant. Food was very reasonable and good service. I had the brie and and the risotto and both were excellent.
The Lotts Cafe Bar
9 Lower Liffey Street, City Centre North, Dublin
Had lunch here on a Saturday afternoon and wasn't very impressed. I had the caesar salad which was okay apart from the fact it had prunes in it. My partner had the steak sandwich which was quite fatty even for him who isn't too fussy about a bit of fat and also had prunes on it. Won't go back.
Sorrell’s Restaurant at the Green Isle Hotel
Newlands Cross, West Dublin, Clondalkin, Dublin
A group of us went here for Sunday lunch and decided on the set menu. It was a disaster from start to finish. All the soup came out cold. There was about 5 bread rolls for about 15 people. When the soup eventually came out and was eaten, we were told there was bread rolls in the oven, at this stage obviously it was too late. The children's dinners were absolutely miserable and we had to order them chips to try and fill them up . For the children's desserts it was supposed to be jelly and icecream but they had no jelly. Everyone complained about some aspect of their dinner. I have to give credit to the waitress who understood how bad things were and tried to correct everything. They did give us the children's dinner's complimentary but the day had been ruined by the awful food.
Saints & Scholars Lounge
35 Abbey Street Lower, City Centre North, Dublin
We went for Sunday dinner in the hotel bar with two children. Not a huge selection but the food was good. Even though I asked and paid for an adults portion I must have got a child's portion as I had the same amount as the children but everyone enjoyed it.
Gourmet Burger Kitchen (GBK South Anne Street)
5 South Anne Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
I was not over impressed with this place. There is a huge selections of burgers but I didn't think they were overpriced. The burgers were only average and the chips were frozen. Not a great atmosphere here either.
The Harbour Master Restaurant & Bar
Custom House Dock, I.F.S.C Dublin 1, IFSC, Dublin
The food here is excellent but the service is probably the worst I have ever encountered. When we entered the waitress looked at her watch and sighed and lead us in the direction of our table. She handed us the menus, looked at her watch again and walked off with a scowl. We shared chicken wings for starters which were the best I had ever had and there was a mountain of them. The caesar salad I had also was delicious and my partner really enjoyed his pasta dish. The only bad thing was the waitress. She didnt speak to us, make any eye contact or interact in anyway. I felt very uncomfortable around her and felt as if we were a burden on her and how dare sit down and enjoy a meal. I would go back for the food but the service was atrocious.
Knights Bistro @ The Arlington Hotel
23-25 Bachelors Walk, O'Connell Bridge, Dublin 1, City Centre North, Dublin
Have eaten here a couple of times before but I feel it has now dramatically gone downhill. We went for the carvery on the Sunday afternoon. The portions were miserable and the food was bland. Will not be returning here again.

Foleys Bar - Queen Maebhs Restaurant

If your looking to eat in beautiful surroundings this is the place. Its stunning to look at. The staff are friendly and the food is very good as well.

Wicklow Street, City Centre South, Dublin
This is a great cafe to drop in for a coffee and a cake or a pastrie. The staff are very friendly and its very relaxing after a day's shopping.
52 Dawson Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin
Went here for an evening meal and found it to be quite expensive for the portions you got. My partner was served his starter fifteen minutes before I got mine. Also here was a small piece of bone in a piece of chicken I had with my starters.I ordered the lasagne which was €14 for a small slice of lasagne and nothing else. It was quite nice but I don't think I would return here.
4B Montague Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
Definitely one of the best value cafes in Dublin. Whether it be breakfast or lunch the food is always of a high quality which would explain why it is always very busy. Would definitely recommend.
8 South Great Georges Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
If you want a quick tasty lunch this is the place to go. The price is very reasonable and the portions generous. The chicken curry is very good

The Border Grill Restaurant @ Break for the Border
2 Johnsons Place, Lower Stephen Street, City Centre South, Dublin
This isnt really the place for a romantic dinner for two but its great if there is a big group. There is such a party atmosphere and the food is quite good. I had the chicken fajitas which were very tasty.
Bonga Korean BBQ
52 Capel Street, Dublin 1, City Centre North, Dublin
Went here for a friends party and I as I had never eaten Korean food before I was a bit apprehensive but I wasnt disappointed. The food was delicious with a huge variety to choose from between meat and fresh vegetables. The desserts were also delicious with profiteroles and other little cakes to choose from. We then went up to the karaoke booths which are hilarious. You have your own room and karaoke machine and you can bring your drinks up with you. It was a great night out and I would highly recommend it.
Broadway New York Eatery
Unit 6, Custom House Square IFSC, City Centre North, Dublin
I have been here twice for lunch. Had pizza the first time and carbonara the second and have never been disappointed. It is quite cramped and it gets very busy but the food is worth it.
The Martello (Bray)
Strand Road, Bray, Wicklow
We sat out in the under the canapes in the heated beer garden on a wet afternoon and had a really nice meal. It didnt matter that it was raining as it was really sheltered. The waitress that served us was very friendly and efficient. I had the pasta which was so big I could only eat about half and my friend had the chicken cordon bleu which he said was delicious. I would definitely return here.
3 Temple Bar, Temple Bar, Dublin
The place itself is ok and the pizzas are very good but I would agree with the other reviews and say that the icecream is the reason to go. Its amazing so make sure to leave some room.
C Central Bar @ The Camden Court Hotel
The Camden Court Hotel, Lower Camden Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
Went here last Friday night for a meal and found the menu very limited. Had the chicken caesar salad and it was only ok, nothing special. We ordered chips on the side which were frozen and quite a few were burnt. Our waitress wasnt exceptionally friendly either even though it was very quiet. The bar itself is nice but wouldnt return for the food.
La Banca Ristorante
Main Street, Lucan Village, Lucan, Dublin
Although for an Italian restaurant it is a little on the pricy side, the food is delicious and the portions are generous. It was fairly quiet when we were there but you can sit back and enjoy the contemorary decor. Overall a very nice experience.
The Norseman Bar & Restaurant
28 Essex Street, Temple Bar, Dublin
Ate here yesterday evening and there is a huge amount to choose from. Had the wings and the lasagne and they were both excellent and great value for money.

Great early bird menu. Good value for money
26 Blooms Lane , Lower Ormond Quay, City Centre North, Italian Quarter, Dublin
This place was recommended by a friend and although the food was good the service could have been a lot better. The risotto was very good.
Zaytoon (Parliament Street)
14/15 Parliament Street, Temple Bar, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
This is the perfect end to a night out in Dublin. The kebabs are so good. Don't know if I'd have one sober but after a few drinks nothing beats it!
Bad Ass Cafe
Crown Alley, Temple Bar, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
There is a great variety here probably at the cheapest price you will get in Temple Bar. The burgers are delicious.
58/59 Middle Abbey Street, City Centre North, Dublin
There is a very good selection at this buffet and everything is kept warm which is a nice change. Very cheap although its not where you'd go for a romantic meal. I did witness a man drop his fork into the curry at the end of my meal which did make me wonder what else may be in it.
73-77 Glasnevin Avenue, Dublin 11, Glasnevin, Dublin
This is a great place to go for lunch. The soup and sandwiches are good and also the main meals. Very reasonable with good service and nice surroundings
The Tolka House
Glasnevin, Glasnevin, Dublin
The carvery is very good here. Good home cooked food served with a smile and at a reasonable price.
The Winding Stair Restaurant
40 Lower Ormond Quay, Dublin 1 , City Centre North, Dublin
Went here with work colleagues for lunch one day and everyone really enjoyed it. Found it a little bit pricey and it is a bit cramped but as it was lunch hour you have to expect this. All in all a very pleasant lunch.
Captain America's Cookhouse and Bar (Tallaght)
Unit A3 Tallaght Cross Dublin 24, Tallaght, Dublin
We have been here a couple of times and bring the kids. The kids love the food and the atmosphere. The only down side is the small cramped bar you have to wait at while you are waiting for your table. The food is good but not many healthy choices.
The Purty Kitchen (Temple Bar)
East Essex Streer, Temple Bar, Dublin
Often eat here and the food is always superb especially the crab cakes. Highly recommended
Mexico to Rome
23 East Essex Street, Dublin 2, City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin

Bits and Pizzas

The Quays Irish Restaurant
10-12 Temple Bar Square, Dublin 2, City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin
Had lunch here for the first time recently and although it is a bit pricey, the food was very good and the staff were attentive and professional. All in all a very nice dining experience.
Clontarf Castle Hotel, Castle Avenue, North Dublin, Clontarf, Dublin
Had dinner here on Mother's Day and wasn’t over impressed. The food was ok but although the portions weren’t very generous and I found almost all the staff to be very unfriendly. Maybe as it was Mother’s Day it was to be expected that the service wasn’t the best so maybe I will try it again and give it a second chance.
Princess Garden of Lucan
Esker Hill, Lucan, Lucan, Dublin
Went here with friends recently and found it to be very good value and the food is very good quality. The buffet is ideal for trying new things that you normally wouldnt order. The soup and the ribs are lovely! Would definitely go again
The Alamo Restaurant
22 Temple Bar, Temple Bar, Dublin
I really liked this restaurant. Good menu to choose from and reasonably priced. The nachos are delicious!
24 East Essex Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin
The ambience in this restaurant is so nice. Its dimly lit and romantic for a couple. The food was delicious although the portions werent huge. Would definitely go back
La Caverna Restaurant & Wine Bar
12 Fownes Street, Dublin 2, City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin
The best place I have eaten in a long time is La Caverna in Temple Bar. We chose the a table downstairs in the dimly lit cave where we drank our wine from silver goblets. The staff were attentive and pleasant. The food was amazing especially the steak which was so tender and cooked to perfection. They also do the tastiest selection of vegetables I have ever eaten. We were too full to manage a dessert and we were even given a shot of sambuca each and a lighter to set it on fire at the end of our meal. All in all it was a great experience and would highly recommend it.
The Bloody Stream Restaurant
Under Howth Dart Station, North Dublin, Howth, Dublin
I've never been disappointed when I go to this restaurant. There's a great selection of sea food and it's all delicious.
The Yacht (Clontarf)
73 Clontarf Road, Clontarf, Dublin
The food here is just divine. Had the carvery here on Sunday and the turkey just melts in your mouth. Good size portions as well. The evening menu is very extensive and reasonably priced. Would highly recommend this place.
The Ivy House
114 Upper Drumcondra Road, Drumcondra, Dublin
Pasta dishes are gorgeous especially the Bosgiola! Good value food and nice surroundings
The Cat & Cage - Closed
74 Drumcondra Road Upper, Drumcondra, Dublin
I eat here quite regularly as this is one of my locals. The Sunday dinners are very tasty and plentiful and quite cheap. Nice relaxed atmosphere and the staff are very friendly.
Luigi Malones Restaurant
5/6 Cecilia Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin
Had a fantastic meal here the other night. The fajitas are so huge I couldnt even eat it all. I sampled the steak as well and it was so tender it melted in your mouth. It is a bit pricey but well worth it. Can't complain about anything here.
Il Corvo Restaurant
98-100 Upper Drumcondra Road, Dublin 9 , Drumcondra, Dublin
As this restaurant is local to me I go quite often. The food is delicious and you aren’t left ages waiting on each course. The service is good and the staff are really nice and friendly.
Wongs of Clontarf
436 Clontarf Road, Dublin 3, Clontarf, Dublin
I think this is one of the best Chinese's in Dublin. It is a bit overpriced but the food is delicious and the decor inside is lovely. The service is very good too.
61 Upper O'Connell Street, City Centre North, Dublin
Ive eaten here a few times and was always very pleased however my last visit wasnt so good. I felt we were practically shoved out of the restaurant. I hadnt even finished chewing my starters when the main course came. We were then presented with the bill straight after without even asking for it. It all felt very rushed even though it wasnt busy and it wasnt late when we entered. The food was good but the rushed service ruined the experience and would hesitate to go back again.
168 Capel Street, City Centre North, Dublin
Although it is very small and not somewhere a group can go for lunch their soups are gorgeous. You get three slices of different kinds of bread with it, which are equally as tasty. Quite pricy for soup but worth it!
7 South Great Georges Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin
This is the best Mexican in Dublin. The interior is lit lovely. The staff are friendly and the food is just amazing. The best fajitas I have ever tasted!
Elephant & Castle
18/19 Temple Bar, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
Had dinner here on Saturday night and wasn’t very impressed. Yes the chicken wings are amazing but that’s about it. It’s very cramped, there were very little main courses to choose from and the toilets were disgusting. I'd go back when it was quiet for the wings but it’s not the place to go for a romantic meal.
17 Dame Street, City Centre South, Dublin
Had dinner here with the girls recently. The food was great and the staff were really friendly and attentive. Very reasonably priced and would have no hesitation going back again.
Cactus Jacks (Middle Abbey St)
Millennium Walkway, Middle Abbey Street, City Centre North, Italian Quarter, Dublin
My boyfriend and I went to Cactus Jacks last Friday night. The food and the service were great. The decor is lovely and romantic. Himself is not a huge fan of Mexican food but there are plenty of alternative options. Can’t wait to go back again!
