A fantastic city centre restaurant. Excellent menu, wine list & choice of beers. And pre-theatre menu really good value. Great friendly server who knows the menu inside out. Food is delicious beyond description & making minor changes to dishes not a problem.

Cafe Topolis
37 Parliament Street, Temple Bar, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Standard run of the mill faux-Italian restaurant. Pizza, Pasta, etc - nothing exciting. Good service. Great value for lunch though.

Preston House
Main Street, Abbeyleix, Laois

Thought Preston House was closed but thankfully it's been rescued and resuscitated by people who are very interested in food & their customers. The fact that it was so poorly lit from the outside, outside doors closed, without any real sign of life, meant that we could very easily have passed by. Luckily we tried the door. For starters we had Scallops, Potato, Vanilla & Cheese and Beef Cheek, Onion, Fois Gras with a Red Wine Sauce. Both were innovatively presented and delicious. For mains we had Cod and the Steak Fillet special. The Cod was beautifully seasoned and was picture perfect on the plate. The Steak was cooked perfectly as ordered with a delicious portion of foie gras perched on top. Desserts were a seriously creamy Vanilla Ice Cream and amazing Blue Cheese Crème Brulée, Pear Compote & Pear Sorbet. The crème brulée & pear was possibly the best dessert I have ever tasted. Only negative has to be the lack of atmosphere as it was so quiet – not the owners fault. The building and dining room are an amazing setting, the music was at a good level and there was plenty of interaction between the staff & the customers but if it was busier there would be much more of a buzz about the place. The bill with wine came to a respectable E100. Great place for a special occasion or a treat.

TGI Friday (Blanchardstown)
Blanchardstown Shopping Centre, Dublin 15, Blanchardstown, Dublin

An absolute waste of money. Servers were disinterested & distant - on automatic pilot. Coconut milkshake was bland. Burger looked impressive but was a real let down - tepid & flavourless. Pasta arrabiata also cold and flavourless. Will never eat here again

Millstone, A Dublin Restaurant
39 Dame Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

An excellent restaurant, with great food, top notch informal service and not too pricey. 9 of us went to the Millstone for a celebratory birthday lunch for a colleague. Atmosphere was lacking because the restaurant was not busy at all, which is a surprise considering how excellent the food is and the specials on offer. The maitre d' greeted us all individually & certainly made us all feel welcome while our waiter was very personable, helpful & courteous. Both of them added to the experience by joining in with our banter. We had a wide variety of food from right across the menu and all was exceptional. One tiny error with the starters (smoked salmon nstead of poached) was rectified without any fuss or unnecessary faffing. Only gripe would be the cost of the wine and a limited enough range. I have eaten here several times & will be back. A number of colleagues have also said thay can't wait to return to try more of the menu. One of the best restaurants in Dublin.

Salamanca Fusion
38 - 40 Parliament Street, City Centre South, Dublin

Was in Salamanca early on Saturday night. Got stuck with main menu - no early bird or specials which was a bit of a disappointment as the tapas towers are great value. Service was friendly Food was excellent good but not as good as Salamanca on Andrew's St. Bill came to 200 for 4 but we were stuffed and well watered also.

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

4 of us visted the rustic stone on a Thursday night to celebrate an anniversary and it was busy. I was full of anticipation as I had extensively researched the menu and had heard lots of positive feedback about the food. Nice atmosphere to start but as it filled it became too nosiey & the air filled with smoke from cooking stakes. Our conversation even died down because the place was so loud we could not hear each other. Luckily we were seated upstairs as downstairs was very cramped and even smokier. Starters were underwelming. Mains were bland 2 had beef on the stone for mains which was a great novelty but the novelty wore off very quickly as I was splattered by hot juices and started to smell like a poorly ventilated kitchen. Fish in the bag arrives in the bag and the tables really are too small for all the unnecessary bowls and plates. The sides portions are pitiously small for the prices charged. Then dessert arrived and according to the description on the menu promised to be a redeeming course - alas no it was another non-event. Service is slow, inattentive, hit & miss, and below average - we had left a drop of wine in the bottle of red we shared - the waiter picked it up & tipped it (sedement and all) into my glass without even asking. We asked 3 different waiters for water before eventually getting some. Meanwhile Mr. McGrath was wandering about the restaurant smooching with some diners completely oblivious to the obvious flaws. Unfortunately this place does not deliver, felt very let down as it did not live up to the hype - won't be back because I have had much better food and a lot better service elsewhere for less money
