An outstanding dining experience. Having eaten in many of the top restaurants in Dublin both my partner and I came out of The Greenhouse with the opinion that this restaurant out performs many of them. The food was heavenly, every course a delight, the fish course was possibly the best main I have had. The staff could not have been more helpful and, having booked last minute and seated at the early seating, I expected that we would have to vacate the table at some point in the evening. This was not the case and we spend several hours enjoying the atmosphere and food. Although not a cheap place to eat, we both felt it was well worth the money and are looking forward to returning soon.

The GreenHouse
Dawson Street, Dublin City Centre, Dawson Street, Dublin

An outstanding dining experience. My partner and I had the tasting menu. Every course was perfection. Having eaten in many high quality restaurants in Dublin, we both came out with the opinion that this is possibly the best restaurant we have eaten in. The fish course for me, was by far the highlight of the menu. The staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. It is a bit pricey however, we were more than happy to pay as the service, food and atmosphere were outstanding. Highly recommended to all foodies.

Mulberry Garden
Mulberry Lane, (directly behind the Bang & Olufsen Store), Dublin 4, Donnybrook, Dublin

A great little restaurant with a lot to offer despite only having 6 items on the menu. The food was stunning with wonderful welcoming service. The cocktails (we got a special happy hour for the bank holiday weekend so cocktails were only a fiver) were beautiful, possibly the best Mojito I've ever had. Great value, just over 100 euro for 3 courses, 1 glass of wine and 1 cocktail for two people. Will return, look forward to receiving the emailed menu every week.

The Cedar Tree
11a St Andrews Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

We visited this restaurant on spec when we saw the early bird menu. The lower mark for atmosphere may not be entirely accurate as it was very quiet at half five in the evening. All the food that I ordered was excellent and although my partner did not like her main it could not be faulted, just simply something she did not enjoy. The service was excellent as the waiter offered to get something else for my girlfriend when he collected our dishes despite the fact that we had not complained. At 16 euro for three courses and a half bottle of wine for 11 euro over all the value was extremely good. Will return.

L'Ecrivain Restaurant
109a Lower Baggot Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

I visited this restaurant with my partner for a special occasion. Having visited this restaurant once before several years ago I had very high expectations and they were not let down. The restaurant is a beautiful place to eat with a lovely atmosphere. The food is stunning. Every course was wonderful but the favourites have to be the Quail starter and the Pork main. The lemongrass dessert was perfect as commented by another user. The only disappointment was that on one occasion I had to ask for more wine and on a second occasion my glass was left empty for longer than I would have expected. Price wise, we thought it was great value as we had one of the deal website vouchers (65 euro for 130 worth of food) but with a bill of 230 for the two meals, apertif, wine and dessert wine, it is still very good value for a Michelin experience.

Salamanca
1 St Andrews Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Visited this restaurant for lunch on a Bank Holiday after Easter. We were drawn in by the lunch menu of two courses (or a glass of wine) for ten euro. Service was reasonable however my companion was only asked what side she wanted with her dish after it arrived. We shared a starter of chicken wings which unfortunately tasted like they might not have been made on site. I had the burger which was slightly overcooked for my taste. Overall the food was average but for ten euro was quite good value. Having said that we are unlikely to return as the cost does not win over the standard of the food.

The Port House
64a South William Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

This was my second visit to this restaurant and knowing that it can be busy we arrived at 18:45. We were attended to as soon as we entered and were told that there could be a 20 minute wait but that we were welcome to have a drink and read the menu. After 5 mins they hostess came back and told us that the table she had lined up for us had just purchased another bottle of wine so it might be a bit longer, giving us the option to leave before we ordered drink if we wanted to. Having chosen to stay we were seated within 30 minutes and despite it being very busy we were attended to very quickly. The food was excellent, 3 or 4 tapas per person is sufficient in my opinion. The total bill for four came to 106 euro including four glasses of wine/sherry and a dessert, great value overall. Will be returning.

Chez Max (Palace Street)
1 Palace Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

After a bad experience in another restaurant on this date, my girlfriend and I went to the very reliable Chez Max. I have eaten in this restaurant on many occasions and have yet to be disappointed. The service is excellent, the food wonderful and is always worth the money. The staff recognise regular and returning customers which lends a very homely feel to the restaurant.

Mitsuba Japanese Restaurant
154 Parnell Street, City Centre North, Dublin

I decided to visit this restaurant after seeing a voucher on Spirit Radio Deals and reading reviews on menupages. My girlfriend is a fan of sushi and I am not so this restaurant seemed the ideal solution as it's menu also includes many non sushi items. On arrival at the restaurant we were left waiting for over 20 minutes before our order was taken, and then a further 25 before the food arrived. When the food arrived they had brought the wrong food for my girlfriend (the waitress realised this before we did). Her food was taken back but my (hot) dish was left. 20 minutes later when her food had still not arrived and mine had gone cold I looked to speak to the manager. I requested that the 20 euro I spent on the voucher be returned and offered to pay for the two drinks we had. I was told that this was not possible, that they wouldn't charge us for the food we had received (my dish which wasn't eaten) and that I could use the voucher next time. I was not satisfied with this and insisted on a refund, I was told that the restaurant receive no money from Spirit so it is not Mitsuba's problem. Eventually the manager left the restaurant and refused to speak to me. After 20 minutes the waitress finally decided to give me 10 euro. Unfortunately I agreed to this as I was incredibly frustrated at this stage. Overall, a terrible experience, rude staff, no customer service. I have eaten in many Dublin restaurants and generally hate complaining, however I felt that I had no option on this occasion and the response I received from the restaurant was insulting and embarrassing.
