A wonderful gem of a cafe hidden away in town! I have been intending to go for so long and finally went with my sister. It was a lovely place with a nice menu. The walnut soup was delicious and the scones were delightfully fresh. The value was good considering the quality of the ingredients and the guarantee that the food was all prepared freshly on site. Highly recommend

Fallon and Byrne
11-17 Exchequer Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Went with a group of friends and I was initially concerned that the staff wouldn't treat us that well because we're in our early twenties - how wrong I was! The staff were extremely polite and observant. The food was delicious but the menu was quite simple for the price paid. Overall we had a lovely evening here and would recommend it.

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

Great food - slightly expensive but great value when you use menupoints!! Staff were lovely and the atmosphere was nice and quiet - just what we were looking for. The food really is amazing! The roast chicken is very good but would serve two people

Avoca Cafe (Suffolk Street)
Avoca, 11 Suffolk Street, City Centre South, Dublin

Went to the basement eatery. Very unimpressive. The tea was in a paper cup and cost 2.50. Over priced and unpleasant experience

Kilkenny Restaurant & Cafe
1st Floor, 5/6 Nassau Street, City Centre South, Dublin

Very good offers on for food. The tea came in a decent sized pot as well. It was nice looking down over nassau st and trinity college.

Bay Restaurant
369 Clontarf Road, Dublin 3, Clontarf, Dublin

Small space - a bit uncomfortable rather than being 'intimate'. The food was beautifully presented but the taste was lacking. The soup is lovely but they fall down on the baking - both the bread and my friend's scone were too dry. Overpriced for what it is.

Idlewilde
20 St. Patrick's Road, Dalkey, Dublin

Very poor service. I went on a Sunday afternoon and it was the only cafe still open. I was expecting more than a poorly made coffee that was plopped carelessly in front of me causing it to spill and be quite messy. The danish i ordered was decent. A fairly underwhelming experience overall

Brams Cafe
4 St Aidans Park Road, Marino, Dublin

The staff are delightful and overwhelmingly helpful. My sister has specific dietry needs which they accommodate without any hesitation! Although it may not appear great, it is well worth the consideration as it is run by such lovely people.

Brick Alley Café
25 East Essex Street, Temple Bar, Dublin

A lovely cafe and interestingly laid out. The food was quite expensive but the menu was lovely and there was a special on that is very good value including two courses for lunch. The sweet treats were the same offerings as a cafe down the road so i was questioning their home-madeness (although in fairness they don;t claim to be!) The portion sizes are very decent and the food is high quality. They serve a selection of teas which is always a plus.

Clodagh's Kitchen
Blackrock Village, Blackrock, Dublin

Haven;t been to the restaurant in Blackrock but the one in Arnotts is always very busy. The service is poor and when I asked for whole milk with my tea I was met with an unpleasant smirk from the barista. The cakes are quite pricey for what they are. The place is lovely on a quieter afternoon and the tea is served in a lovely china cup. I will go back again but not in a hurry

Sweet Nosh
Unit 1, Chatham St., St Stephens Green, Dublin

A pleasant little surprise we found in town! A lovely authentic Italian cafe serving an array of mini pastries and sweet treats - the perfect bite size to accompany a tea or coffee. A great atmosphere, it's lovely and quiet away from the chaos of Grafton st just seconds away. Very fairly priced and very pleasant service. Highly recommend

Promenade Cafe
1-2 Windsor Terrace, South Dublin, Dun Laoghaire, Dublin

Nice cafe with a nice atmosphere. The cakes are nice but not worth the high price. The slices of cake are quite big and may do two people to share however. They do a good pot of tea!

Phoenix Park Cafe
Grounds of the Visitor's Centre, Parkgate Street, Dublin

The food looked to be good quality. The service was slow and understaffed for such a busy afternoon. The space is quite small and very noisy but it is a nice place. Tea was good value and the coconut raspberry crunch slice was tasty but a bit disappointing! Overall it was a nice experience but maybe a place to go on a quitter day to get more pleasure!

Country Bake
35, Castle Street, Dalkey, Dalkey, Dublin

Lovely cafe with a lovely upstairs seating area! The food was lovely! I had a slice of toffee apple cake - beautifully moist and light. The pot of tea was perfect - just the right temperature! A lovely treat. The waiter was a bit all over the place though and service was slow. But I'll definitely go back!

ITSA @ Harvey Nichols
Harvey Nichols, Dundrum Town Centre, Sandyford Road, Dundrum, Dublin

I was very disappointed with my visit to the cafe. I went in with high expectations given the name and reputation. I had the tea and scone offer for 5 euro. The service was dreadful. I was waiting for a very long time before I was served and then again before I was served the tea and scone even though the place was practically empty. The scone was lovely and came served with cream and jam. The tea wasn't served in a pot which I found unimpressive. Overall very disappointing.

Rustic Stone
South George's Street, Dublin, City Centre South, Dublin

Was there for lunch for a family occasion. The food was lovely - The houmous starter was delicious. It was followed by two mini burgers! A great combination and just the right amount of food. The staff were very pleasant and when the waiter forgot to bring a coffee to the table he discounted it from the bill. Great cocktails! I'll be back again!

Andersons Creperie
1A Carlingford Road, Drumcondra, Drumcondra, Dublin

Food was excellent - there was a great variety to choose from and I was stuck as to what to pick! Good portion sizes therefore making it good value for money. Dessert and coffee were delicious! Even bought some cheese for at home later on which was recommended by our waiter. Will be back again to try something new!

Avoca Handweavers
Kilmacanogue, Bray, Bray, Wicklow

Avoca always serves lovely food. Whenever I go I know what I can get as it's the same in every one. However consistency isn't to be knocked in this case! The portion sizes are too big. I would rather pay less for a smaller portion than a lot and not being able to finish it all. The coffee wasn't great and was very expensive too. The food is delicious though!

Gotham Cafe
8 South Anne Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Service is good depending on the day however. The two courses for 15 euro is good value. Would highly recommend the anti pasta starter and the main green chicken curry - they're delicious! Quite expensive for a small cappuccino yet it was worth it for the deliciousness!

Independent Pizza Co
28 Drumcondra Rd Lower, Dublin 9, Drumcondra, Dublin

Great pizza and lasagne! The staff could be a bit more friendly when the place gets busy however. The restaurant can sometimes be very stuffy when it gets busy. A great place for food regardless of that however!

Kinara Restaurant
318 Clontarf Road, North Co. Dublin , Clontarf, Dublin

The early bird menu is incredible - starter, main, dessert and a homemade slice of cake with the bill all for just under 20 euro per person! Great portion sizes, not too big or small. Great timing between courses. The staff were both friendly and attentive - my water glass was never empty they were so attentive! I will definitely be back!!

Queen of Tarts
4 Cork Hill Dame Street, City Centre South, Dublin

Pleasant experience in Cow's Lane cafe. Bigger than the Dame Street premises. Great way to while away a few hours. Great, buzzing atmosphere, loved being surrounded by the old teacups! The raspberry scone was delicious - lovely and moist and not too doughy. The tea was a good pot and was served with a smile. A lovely afternoon and I will be back for breakfast sometime!

Campo de' Fiori Bistro Market
1 Albert Avenue, Bray, Co. Wicklow, Bray, Wicklow

Such a pleasant experience. The staff were lovely and efficient, friendly and accommodating. Definitely a must-go place to eat. We were there quite early so the place was still quiet. You know you're in a good Italian when you're surrounded by actual Italians!

Summervilles of Greystones
1 Trafalgar Road, Greystones, Greystones, Wicklow

Lovely cafe in a lovely setting. The cakes and food was lovely - very well priced. My tea however was served cold which was disappointing. The staff were lovely but as it was busy they were a bit slow in service. It was nice to see them giving the dogs some water on a hot day though! :)

Garden Tearooms
Botanic Road, Glasnevin, Dublin

Lovely outdoor courtyard. Nice and quiet atmosphere outside in comparison to very busy indoor cafe. Staff were impatient and unfriendly however. Cakes were a bit pricey but were enjoyable. Nice pot of tea!!

Salt Cafe @ Avoca
The Crescent, Monkstown, Dublin

The food is absolutely beautiful. Portions are a bit too large though, as with all Avoca cafes. If they could reduce the portions then they could reduce the price a bit! Expensive meal but worth it for a real treat. The rotisserie chicken is gorgeous and succulent. Cooked to perfection! The lamb dish served with the humous and pitta breads is also worth a taste as it is wonderful. The atmosphere fell down because it was a bit too busy overall. This meant that interaction with servers was minimal and therefore not great. However the food trumps the lot and it's a place well worth going!

Cornucopia
19/20 Wicklow Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Has become very expensive and the service is not very great. Having said that, the food is the best vegetarian food in Dublin! Nowhere else quite like it in Dublin! Love the food!

Restaurant Ten Fourteen
324 Clontarf Road, Clontarf, Dublin

The waiter made the experience very enjoyable. It's nice to know that the profits go to a good and worthy cause. But having said that, the decor is very dated. This is negligible in comparison to the other positives! Would love to go back for their scones and jam - they looked delicious!!

Good food. However the bill arrived abruptly without having been requested. Very rushed service. We were not made feel welcome and were uncomfortable.
