We thought the food was lovely, except for the fishcake, which had a scallop in the centre, waste off a nice scallop. The trio of unusual ice creams were yummy, the treacle being my favorite! We had our (sleeping) 3 onth old son with us and were made very welcome none the less.

The Left Bank Bistro
Fry Place, Athlone, Westmeath

We ate here for lunch on our way to Galway, myself and the other half have eaten here several times but we had the four children with us this time. The service was quick and friendly, the childrens menu was lovely and my six year old could have his favorite chicken wings while the four year old had his pasta, my nine year old had the spring rolls, they devoured every little bit! My teenager had a huge basket of buffalo wings which he devoured and he is an expert in wings! The other half had duck noodle dish from the thai menu, I had the left bank salad with a hunk of foccacia bread. We rounded off our lunch with some tirimisu, chocolate mud cake, smarties cookies and a slice of chocolate almond pavlova! A great value lunch, lovely place to bring the family!

Gourmet Tart Company
Monksfield, Salthill, Galway

We visited here on Saturday early evening, a group of eleven including two children, the place has a lovely fresh but cosy atmosphere and the lovely baked goodies we passed by on our way in really got our taste buds tingling. The staff were lovely, and very obliging. The food was exactly the kind of food I love, I had antipasti to start, and the beetroot and goats cheese dip was fantastic. The rib eye steak with Cafe de Paris butter so delicious, cooked exactly the way I like it, the butter was devine and the chunky chips and onion rings (with I think coriander) in the batter complimented the steak perfectly. We took away some macaroons which were lovely bite sized bits of heaven. Would go back to galway just to eat there!

The Lobster Pot @ The Galway Bay Hotel
The Promenade, Salthill, Salthill, Galway

We ate here in a big Family group, we were staying in the hotel for my birthday, the staff were really super helpful, even though we asked lots of questions, as the menuwas quite "fancy" and we needed some help. I had the lobster fresh from the tank which was delicious. As hotel restaurants go it was a good experience.

The Real Gourmet Burger - Dun Laoghaire
The Pavilion, South Dublin, Dun Laoghaire, Dublin

I have been going here since it opened, it is a lovely place, friendly staff (same faces all the time which is lovely) We went here for lunch, lunch is our meal of choice as our toddler is most amicable during the hours of 1pm to 4pm! I had the Holy Moly burger my other half had the Azzuri and the toddler from hell had the sausages and chips, we started with some yummy chicken wings. It was a lovely meal, great value and fantastic quality food, this is the only place I know where a burger is never greasy!

Farmgate Cafe
Old English Market, Princes Street, Cork City, Cork

My partner and my daughter and our son were in Cork for a weekend away, himself and I had visited the Farmgate in the English Market before and loved it, so I knew my seven year old foodie in the making would love it too. We went for a lovely fried Irish breakfast before heading off to Fota for the day (with bags of goodies from the market for a picnic) the breakfast was exactly what we wanted, friendly service, even with having to get a bulky buggy up the steps! I go here whenever I am in Cork it is fanastic, as another reviewer said, good quality food simply cooked! Perfect!

Zest Cafe
Unit 6/7, Clane Shopping Centre, Clane, Kildare

My partner and our toddler ate lunch here on Tuesday after a lovely walkin Donadea forest, we have eaten hee many times, both for lunch and dinner and have never been disappointed by the service, and the quality of the food. In particular the wraps with salad or chips at ten euro are a lovely lunch. I had the Cajun chicken salad(special) which was fresh and light, my partner had the Hake (fish of the day) which was lovely and fresh, our two year old had the tomato and mozzarella pasta (enough to feed several children, and delicious). For dessert we had the warm chocolate pudding with coconut ice cream and the lemon tart with clotted cream, both excellent, lovely meal, friendly staff and great value.

The Silk Road Cafe
The Chester Beatty Library, Dublin Castle, City Centre South, Dublin

Today myself my partner and our two year old visited the Silk Road, I had the falafel sandwich, with the best falafel I have ever tasted... I love my chickpeas, my partner had the lamb Kofta Panini... which was huge, and lovely, our little guy had the chicken and chips, a lovely marinated chicken breast and home cooked (like mammy murphy used to make) chips. It was a wonderful lunch, and we agreed it was a place we would venture into town again for... which says a lot. service was lovely and friendly, it was fantastic value, and the food made us feel like we were somewhere far more interesting than Dublin!

Bits and Pizzas
15 Patrick Street, Dun Laoghaire, Dun Laoghaire, Dublin

my partner and my two sons went here for a saturday pizza in February, my sons ordered the kids pizza and icecream and both my partner and I ordered from the two course menu. I had a lovely pizza with rocket and very lean parma ham and the homemade icecream (rum and raisin) was fab! My partner had the Capri salad and the americana salad (and a fair bit of my ice cream... even though he doesn't like icecream) It was a lovely meal, extremely child friendly at 6.30 on a rainy saturday evening. we will definatley go again!

Ananda
Dundrum Town Centre, Dublin 14, Dundrum, Dublin

A friend of mine has been singing the praises of Ananda since it opened, and kindly got me a voucher for my birthday. My partner and I love indian food but this is a whole other kind of indian food. Starters of beetroot and tandoori mushroom for me and Goats cheese cakes for him were very modern fusion food, I would have enjoyed the salad more without the tandoori mushroom, he complained that there wasn't much cheese in the cakes. The main of Darbary duck my partner enjpyed greatly, but I had the Ananda Masahari Thaali which was delicous, lovely fresh flavours, and none of it too hot , it was a lovely way to try a little of everything. I had the chocolate parfait for dessert which was lovely! A lovely treat!

The Halfway House
Walkinstown Road, Walkinstown, Dublin

I have eaten in the Halfway House several times, as it is my parents regular place for dinner on a Saturday, rain or shine. Last Saturday after my son's baptism sixteen of us headed there for a meal, it was lovely as always. Service is always so friendly, and if a little slow (there were eight adults and eight children) it was polite and old school. Some of us had the special value menu, the T bone steak was lovely, but the highlight for me was the mozzarella salad, my five year old daughter loves the melon. We have already booked a table for my mum's 65th birthday next month.

Riverbank Restaurant @ The Absolute Hotel
Absolute Hotel, Limerick City, Limerick

We were staying in the Hotel for the weekend, which was lovely, the room was fab, but the food seriously let this place down. We had our dinner included in the package, it wasn't the supervalu one so we could choose from anything on the menu, but the food was disappointing. I had the goats cheese tarlet, I adore goats cheese, this was a disaster as the tartlet was obviously prebaked, it was rock hard. The chicken wings my partner had were better, but the steak was awful, really thin and cheap tastng. I had the burger, which was ok, chips were good too. We rounded off with desserts, my meringues were so hard and chewy, I managed one and then had to give up! Would stay in hotel again, but room only as food is not their strong point!
