Was in Toscana's again on Sunday, always so happy we went. I had crab claws and king prawns which were both delicious, my partner had the calamari and lasagna and we both had gorgeous desserts. Only very minor complaint was we asked twice for the 2nd glass of wine but the delay was noted by the manager who gave it to us free of charge! Excellent service, Divine food, little expensive but totally worth it!

Reviewed 20th April 2010 ( visited 15th April 2010 )

We dropped into an poitin stil for quick bite to eat on way back to Dublin. It was cheap the service was good until I asked for the bill and it was a really long wait so we just went straight to the till to pay rather than wait for anyone to come back. I was really disappointed with my meal. I asked for then chicken wings which were kind of tasteless then the white wine and mushroom pasta that had one mushroom at a search and a huge lump of melted cheddar cheese on top!? I asked could I have garlic bread on the side which they said they couldn't see why not although not on the menu, yet it never appeared and no explanation. My partner had filo prawns which were standard and then a mixed grill which to be fair he enjoyed both. Its pub grub expect no more and you will leave full yet not necessarily satisfied!

Sabor Brazil
71a Camden Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

We went to Sabor in the city centre last Friday and we found it to be a very intimate, personal, hidden gem off Camden St. It is surprisingly small with only 3 tables downstairs and the same upstairs, perfect for a quiet meal amongst a small number, not great for a large group, max table size of 6. The waiting staff were extremely helpful recommending the specials and cocktails for us to try but not at all pushy. I had a fig salad starter and my partner had a selection of cheese bread and dips, both of which were moreish and satisfying. Whilst waiting on the starter we received a complimentary bean and bacon soup and following the starter a palate cleansing sorbet, both of which were delicious. For main I had seafood risoto which was divine but unfortunately i was too full to finish a very generous portion. My partner had the bife a parmagiana which he devoured and couldn't speak highly enough about. Complimentary liquors were offered but declined and the cost including two ten euro cocktails and two cokes came to a staggeringly good value of 70 euro! Will definitely go back!

40Foot Bar&Grill;
Pavillion Centre, Royal Marine Road, Dun Laoghaire, Dublin

We went for a belated mothers day meal to the 40ft on Thursday and we can't speak highly enough about it! Between the four of us we had 4 starters, 4 mains, 4 desserts 3 white wine spritzers and 6 pints and it came to 157 euro. And as we brought home the leftovers we found this to be exceptional value. The portions were large, the service was efficient and the atmosphere relaxed and lively. I had the nachos, the chorizo chicken and the eton mess and my only complaint is that i had too much!n Not a bad complaint, will definitely go back!

Jaipur Restaurant (Ongar)
Unit 35 and 39, Main Street, Ongar village, Dublin 15, Clonee, Dublin

I was really disapointed with Jaipur in Ongar despite really looking forward to going based on your reviews! My boyfriend and I are big fans of a similar restaurant in Clonsilla and maybe we were unfair in our expectations of Jaipur! We had starters of Jaipur Jugalbandi and Karare Kekda which although small portions were really nice! The disapointment came in our mains! My boyfrend had the Kesari Murgh Korma which was fine but not like what we expected with a strange decoration of a cherry tomato in the middle of the curry. I had the Chaa Gosht, unfortunately the lamb was tasteless and the sauce overpowering. The bill came to around 120 euro with a bottle of wine and one dessert, not cheap! The staff were very nice and the decor refreshingly modern but Jaipur was not for us!

Shimla
5 Weavers Row, Clonsilla, Clonsilla, Dublin

We are regular visitors to the Shimla, and after we didn't receive a reply from our reservation request for another restaurant we ended up there again this Saturday! As always the food was gorgeous, service impeccable and despite being really busy we didn't suffer on service as a result! I had a king prawn special with coconut and cream for main course and my boyfriend had a mild curry though it was quite spicy! Two starters, main courses, bottle of wine and sides of naan, poppadoms and rice all cost 65 euro! Great value!

Aurora Asian Cuisine
Unit 5, Block C , Tyrrelstown Town Centre, Dublin 15, Tyrrelstown, Dublin

We booked Aurora on Saturday night as we read the reviews on menupages. We were most definitely not disappointed! The food was gorgeous including the frogs legs we'd been waiting all week to taste! The staff were lovely, so attentive and they showed us the karaoke function room as we were leaving which seems great value! Can't wait to go back! Cannot speak highly enough about the place we felt like V.I.P's and wondered what we had done to deserve it!
