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

Visited on Halloween before a concert on a voucher. It took an hour for our food to arrive. Having eaten and cooked Tapas extensively and allowing for the different styles from regions were disappointed by the the food. The Verduras En Tempura were greasy and some of the vegetables were raw.The patatas Ali-Oli were good. The Croquettas De Jamon were good but the Al Bondigas com Tomate were poor and allowing for the mix of beef and poor the texture was similar to a tinned meatball and tepid the Chrizo Picante Al Vino was tough and chewy. We were asked when leaving how our meal was and I said just ok. We never saw a waiter until we left and the restaurant wasn't full. We'd to add €10.50 to our bill due to the €50 voucher. The toilets could do with a check not a great sign.

Rotana Cafe Restaurant
31 South Richmond Street, Dublin 2, Portobello, Dublin

Having visited a number of BYOB and this style of food which we love decided to try the restaurant. It was full to capacity we got a nice table and luckily were not crammed in. The noise levels were quite high making conversation quite difficult. We chose a mezze between four which came with flat bread. Delicious hummus dips, pickled peppers, mains two of us went for the chicken kebab and one of our guests went for cubed chicken all three dishes were identical tepid and a little disappointing, the fourth main was lamb meatballs in a spicy sauce with rice. The attraction of the BYOB is great for large parties but for small dining groups the food has to be just as much the attraction the food was just ok.

Eddie Rockets (Walkinstown)
Lidl Shopping Centre, Walkinstown Avenue, Dublin 12, Walkinstown, Dublin

Visited on a cold evening to a handful of people in the restaurant opted for a meal deal for two adults and asked for garlic chips. The restaurant was quite cold and when we enquirer we were told the heating was broken, this became evident when our waitress served us in her coat. We were foolish enough to have stayed and under health and safety the restaurant should have been closed. The bill was a disaster mainly as we ordered garlic sauce so the deal didn't apply and they wanted to charge €3 each for garlic sauce. The staff don't really care this has been my second and last visit to the store. They should look at their competitors and realise why this franchise is never full very poor experience. We were reluctantly refunded the difference in the garlic sauce but eating in artic conditions isn't the American Dining Experience.

Bunsen
22 East Essex Street, Temple Bar, Dublin

With Bunsen you get consistently good burgers, the queue to get in the door and the 20 minute wait for a Friday lunch shows just how popular the restaurant is. You can opt to make an on-line booking but no one told the staff so it's a bit pointless however three days after my original booking a week previous they could offer me a table. The staff are young, super efficient. The food never disappoints the burger is always amazing although I have to deduct a star for the scrapings of the bag the hand cut chips which we searched for. If your charging above the average burger joint don't spoil it by serving substandard fries hand cut or otherwise.

Forno
3 The Crescent, Donnybrook, Donnybrook, Dublin

Forno's decor is impressive set out in a modern style with high seats, booths and ordinary low level tables. We had a menu pages voucher which entitled us to two starters two mains and two glasses of wine which we upgraded to a white pino Grigio. We had two amazing starters, poipete homemade meat balls, marinara sauce and toasted ciabatta, then calamari in panko breadcrumbs with rocket cherry tomatoes and a sundries tomatoe pesto the best calamari I've eaten in Dublin. Having travelled extensively in Italy we were on a high to discover the food so good. Unfortunately the mains were disappointing, we guess the pizza bases were frozen they had a spongy texture and far too much air holes to be freshly made which was disappointing, the pepperoni was tasty but in short supply one circle at a stretch per slice and it was cooked well. The other main was Chicken Milanese lightly breaded chicken deep fried or on their website page deep DRIED was OK edible but again unless the chicken was genetically modified the breast wasn't real chicken Breast white meat but like any frozen breaded chicken you can buy. Service was excellent, toilets are unisex, and one was overflowing on the night. The restaurant for a Friday for D4 was half full.

Antica Venezia
97 Ashfield Road, Dublin 6, Ranelagh, Dublin

Visited for a birthday celebration on a voucher deal. The restaurant is impressive and feels homely, the staff are very pleasant we immediately liked it. We chose Bruchetta delicious homemade bread topped with tomato garlic and olive oil, shared an antipasto a selection of Parma ham, salami, mortadella, roast peppers, olives, parmigiana served on a lovely wooden board. Mains were a pepperoni pizza just slightly over cooked, pasta carbonara, sea food risotto alla Veneziana which was a bit dry. A lovely meal and we'd go back

JD's Steakhouse
4 Rathfarnham Road, Dublin 6W, Terenure, Dublin

Had read reviews of JD\'s and decided to give it a try located in Terenure the restsurant is on two floors. The restaurant was half full. We were shown to our seats and produced our voucher. The menu is predominatly steak a goid selection of starters and desserts side orders and a good wine list. The steaks werd very good but the five large fries on the large plate meant the food was lost of course you do have the option of ordering sides perhaps this is what you get with a voucher. Starters were good small portions and desserts were huge. Service was good but we had to request water five times. For what we paid the steaks were worth it but we were not blown away by the food.

Bunsen

Pacinos
18 Suffolk Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

We visited on a Dining Room Voucher, strangely enough despite booking and ringing to say we were a bit late the restaurant had no record of our booking. The restaurant was fairly empty, it's nice and comfortable however how rocky table was attributed to the floor and we were moved to comfy booths. Service was slow and the staff lacked knowledge of what was available on the menu, having ordered bruschetta with thinly sliced Porchetta, goats cheese and sun dried tomato when the dish arrived it was bruschetta with tomatoes we were told our previous order was off the menu, however it was quickly remedied by a fillet of beef carpaccio which was delicious the only problem being my partner had eaten their parmigiana di melanzane baked layered aubergines with mozzarella cheese which was very good. We ordered water no jug arrived despite two requests, two pizzas were ordered a Diavola with a tasty sauce tomato based, mozzarella cheese and spicy pepperoni. And our second choice was Pizza Meditteranea again tomato sauce, mozzarella, grilled red pepper, aubergines and courgettes. The best thing about the pizzas were the bases best we have tasted in a long time, unfortunately we had to send them back to be cut, the pepperoni was scarce on the pizza, with four slices with no meat on them, the vegetarian option had the chargrilled aubergine, the courgette was limp and undercooked and we to search for the peppers. We opted for a house white at a hearty €26.00. Maybe we got the staff on a bad night but with a restaurant practically empty the service should have been more attentive, had knowledge of the menu it was disappointing as we read the reviews before heading there.

Little Jerusalem - Rathmines
3 Wynnefield Road, Dublin 6 , Rathmines, Dublin

We booked a table for 9pm the restaurant capacity is small and the restaurant was full adding to the atmosphere we had a voucher which entitled us to ant two starters, mains and desserts and of course the BYOB with no corkage fee. We chose Baba Ghanoush roasted aubergine purée with tahini, yogurt, olive oil and lemon juice served with home made naan bread and hummus Bil Lahme, hummus topped with pan fried lamb seasoned with a spice mix served on a flat bread. Mains were Chicken Shawarma chicken marinated in olive oil, garlic, pepper and nutmeg served with naan bread and salad and kofta Pil Patata which was minced lamb roasted in spices and served with a Palestinian salad. The food was excellent, we were told at 10.30 that the restaurant was closing so if you have a late booking it's not a place to linger. We will definitely be back the only minus are the toilets just a personal observation they let the restaurant down and need to be spruced up.

Peperina Bistro Garden
25 Dunville Avenue, Dublin 6, Ranelagh, Dublin

We booked for four people using a voucher. The restaurant was busy with loud music from the speakers but otherwise a good atmosphere. Two had chicken wings for starters which were meaty and spicy, one guest had crostini with garlic prawns and the last guest had nachos a little underwhelming with poor cheese. We waited a good while for our mains, two had steak priced at a hefty €23 for rib eye they were ok, one guest chose cananolli which was inedible and unfortunately had to be sent back to the kitchen, one guest had rotisserie chicken with garlic mushrooms and a lacklustre celeriac mash. Our guest ordered steak to replace her pasta but by this time we had finished our mains her steak was very chewy and over cooked. As a gesture of goodwill we thought we might have been deducted the difference between the two dishes but with very little apology we were charged the full price. Maybe the kitchen had a bad night but to bring back customers you have to be consistent with your food. It was very average at best with Dublin 6 prices.

Base Wood Fired Pizza
Terenure Road East, Terenure, Dublin

Amazing wood fired pizzas opted for a Pepperoni Pizza packed with flavour lovely crust. Them a vegetarian pizza nice but veg was definitely in balsamic especially the aubergines and not fresh which was a little disappointing

Whitefriar Grill
16 Aungier Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin

We have been here a few times and the menu changes slightly, great atmosphere the music is a bit loud and if only turned down a fraction would be grest. The food doesnt disappoint Whitefriar Grill are renouned for their steaks so ordering outside the box can leave you a bit disappointed. Its a bit like going to an Italian and ordering Chinese. We had the courgette fritters with quiona and beetroot to start, a bowl of spicy chicken wings. I ordered steak on the bone which was amazing the jus that accompanied it was very dense and salty. The wedges were ok but the steak was tge star of the show. We chose gnocci for a main and it wad pretty disappointing, the gnocci pieces were far too big and resembled large potatoe cakes, the flavour was quite bland and the dish lackec flavour and moisture. That aside we had two lovely desserts a banoffi tart and a selection of fruits, marshmellow with a chocolate fondue. Dont expect to linger in the Whitefriar Grill, service is impeccable and their table turn around is an hour and 30 minutes, the star of the show was the steak and judging by the tables that is what most ordered. we finished on two bitter espressos.

Al Mezza Lebanese Restaurant
6 Bastion Street, Athlone, Westmeath

We purchased a deal thoug menupages and found this wonderful restaurant in Athlone situated in what was perhaps an old house we were greeted and shown to our table. Our voucher entitled us to two starters two mains and two desserts. The menu has so much on it your spoilt for choice. The food was perfect and service very good. The dessert were a bit disappointing but the whole experience of tasting the lebanese array of food was great.

Brasserie 7
The Capel Building, Capel Street, Dublin 1, City Centre North, Dublin

Purchased two lunch vouchers through Grab One which entitled us to two starters and two mains from the A La Carte Menu. First time in the resturant at lunch and unfortunately the restaurant was empty which made the venue lack atmosphere, the meal entitled us to dishes from the A La Carte Menu. There was a good range of dishes on starters and mains but unfortunately a lot of them were unavailable on the day. For a quick lunch the food was grand, chicken wings to start were fine, my guest had soup which was fine, mains were a supreme of chicken with veg and potatoes and I chose a pulled pork stew. The food was fine we got what we paid for two coffees although generous size cost a staggering 2.80! I'm glad we tried it but I wouldnt be rushing back sorry!

Pinocchio Italian Restaurant & Wine Bar
Luas Kiosk, Ranelagh Village, Dublin 6, Ranelagh, Dublin

We dined on a three course menu pages voucher. Dining on the voucher is subject to a separate menu which gives a choice of 5 starters, 5 mains and 3 desserts. It's limited from Sun-Thurs. First impressions are how large the restaurant is, it was a quiet Thursday. We chose Antipasto All Italians a selection of thinly sliced Italian cured meats with cheese and the most delicious grilled vegetables, we had a taster of a cube of focaccia bread with an amazing green pesto. And the second starter of tasty brochettes mistre. The flavour and taste is evident in the high quality ingredients. We had ravioli of the day in a creamy truffle sauce and Spiedino di Manzo e Salciccia which was a skewer of fillet of beef and Italian sausage with potatoes and a mixed salad, our deal included a dessert, we had a lemon cheesecake and an Italian Chocolate cake. Service was excellent. The meal was probably one of the best I have eaten, the quality of food is second to none, priced on the higher end of Italian Restaurants we'd definitely go back but would like to have the option of a wider menu subject to supplements if necessary for more expensive options.

Zen
89 Upper Rathmines Road, Dublin 6, Rathmines, Dublin

We decided to treat ourselves to a take out with this well known restaurant and opted to order from a restaurant rather than a standard Chinese takeaway to ensure that we got quality food. We ordered spring rolls, honey spare ribs which we ok. The mains were inedible, we chose sweet and sour chicken which arrived in popcorn style the size of a two cent, the chicken was tasteless the sauce bore no resemblance to sweet and sour and there was no flavour from it. We ordered a fillet of beef curry spicy. The curry colour was light brown and watery the spicy was slices of chili which masked any potential flavour the dish had. We had to search for the meat, the curry had no onions and Carrotts. Again this dish went into the bin. We contacted the restaurant who apologised for the quality of the food and would pass the comments onto the chef. We were told not to order the curry spicy ad the child slices affect the flavour, although flavourless why have this option on the menu. At this point we decide to try the fried rice, it's a sad state of affairs if a Chinese can't get rice right. The rice was hard, undercooked and the two portions ended up in the bin. We can't rate the atmosphere as it was a take out, the service was 5 down to the efficient delivery at a hefty €2.50. The food was extremely poor. The best thing were the snazzy black bags that the food arrived in. At €34 inclusive of delivery we should have had top class food.

Dobbins Restaurant
15 Stephen Lane, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

First visit to Dobbins. The restaurant was full, greeted by lovely staff. We chose from the A La Carte menu, two of our table had a generous portion of tempura prawns with Asian slaw and star anise which were delicious, one guest opted for the chicken and pear salad which was equally delicious and I had the ham hock terrine with chicken confit fois grains with fig chutney, grapes and toasted brioche which visually was superb and equally delicious. We chose a white crisp Pinot noir, service was friendly, professional, we had a nice break inbetween mains, two guests chose the deboned soy glazed duck Breast and two guests went for the 28 day aged rib eye, sides were lyonnaise potatoes and seasonal vegetables. The duck was succulent and a good portion, the steak sat on chunky chips and was accompanied by a green pepper sauce, steaks were requested medium to well done and cooked to perfection but they were a bit disappointing and rather chewy, the desserts were divine, a creme brûlée, a classic tirsuimi, a chocolate fondant and an amazing sticky toffee pudding.

I Monelli restaurant
1-2 Portobello Road , Portobello, Dublin

Arrived on a busy Saturday night with no reservation and were shown to a table promptly. I Monelli has lovely booth like couches for the festive season and has an amazing Christmas Menu on offer. We chose Frascati White crisp white, starters were Tortino di Melanzana an aubergine tartlet with spinach and ricotta cheese on a tomato coulis and raisins, the other starter was a generous helping of Calmari Fritti golden rings do squid served with a spicy tomato dip cooked to perfection the best calamari I have ever had. Mains were an amazing Risotto Rosa, Risotto with prawns and prose co wine with pink lumpfish roe and an Abbruzzi Pizza tomato sauce, Mozarella Cheese, Aubergine, Zucchini, peppers and shaved parmigiana followed by two amazing coffees.

I Monelli restaurant
1-2 Portobello Road , Portobello, Dublin

Visited yet again on a menu pages voucher great value for €40 euros worth of food for €20. As there were three of us we were still accommodated with voucher in tow, seafood linguini came with an amazing crayfish, we had a pizza, again as good as last time with more aubergine than the array of vegetables, followed by cannelloi. A bottle of house white and an after dinner drink on the house made it yet again an enjoyable night.

Brambles Café Bistro
102-104 Terenure Road North, Terenure, Dublin

Visited on a Saturday evening surprised to see the restaurant half full. Having being aware of the cafe end of the chain this was our first time in the restaurant. We were greeted by friendly efficient staff and brought to our table. The bread was delicious and as my partner is allergic to nuts the waiter offered to source another type of bread. We chose garlic mushrooms stuffed with cream cheese and fiery chicken wings both excellent quality and delicious. Mains were an amazing fillet steak cooked well done as requested to perfection holding its moisture and flavour, accompanied with a side order of mushrooms and onions, the other main was duck presented on Savoy cabbage with a side order of the best lyonnaise potato's. Unfortunately the boxy that accompanied the steak although inviting was stone cold. We were brought a replacement which was very poor piping hot but a terrible flavour, not wanting to complain we left it to one side and pointed out to our excellent waiter that the rest of the food was excellent but the boxy was dreadful. We chose desserts which we were told were compliments of the house as a gesture for the returned boxy. Brambles are known for having the most amazing desserts, I dine frequently in their Jervis St outlet. I chose Pavlova which was just ok, my guest chose pannacotta which came in a small orange juice glass decorated with fruits and what we thought was a biscuit crumble which turned out to be hazelnuts. We returned the dessert and received a replacement minus the nuts. There was flavour in the pannacotta but it was solid in the small glass and had the texture of a set jelly, that aside we had an enjoyable night. The majority of the food was very good let down by a cold boxty and just ok desserts.

La Bodega Tapas y Vinos
93 Ranelagh Village, Dublin 6 , Ranelagh, Dublin

Had heard a lot about this tapas restaurant. It was full on a Saturday night and we were lucky to have pre-booked. There is such an array to choose from its hard to decide what to get. Four of us shared, pan fried prawns with chili and garlic, batter prawns in garlic mayonnaise, hand made creamy cheese and bacon croquettes, hot and spicy chicken wings, meat balls in a fiery tomato and manchego sauce, crispy potato cubes, rice with chicken and chorizo, and a Spanish omelette. The food is really good here having visited many tapas bars in Spain as well as Dublin, the meat balls were a let-down reheated and no flavour, we shared a house white and red and managed to have a cheese board and churros. A great night, good food well worth a second visit.

I Monelli restaurant
1-2 Portobello Road , Portobello, Dublin

Visited for a birthday celebration, I Monelli is an authentic restaurant run by Gianni and his wife. Gianni's passion for forest locally sourced produce and his attention to detail, his honesty makes a visit to I Monelli a treat. Three of us dined on an amazing seafood linguini decorated with whole king prawns, a prawn risotto cooked to perfection and the best pizza in Dublin currently a vegetarian pizza made with the base base, shush and array of vegetables, a lovely carafe of red and a bottle of house white. The service as always is excellent and the food is delicious.

Radisson BLU Hotel Letterkenny
Paddy Harte Road, Letterkenny, Donegal

Dined at the restaurant on a cold wet Friday. The hotel is well presented and friendly and super efficient staff. Unfortunately both the bar and restaurant were empty so the place lacked a bit of atmosphere. We chose from the table d'tote menu and opted for Caesar salad (spelt incorrectly on the menu), which was very nice although surprised that the chicken was left whole and heated, there could have been more lettuce. Mains were a pasta dish served in a skillet and steak cooked to perfection with good sides of mash/veg and chips, and two of the best desserts, homemade apple pie with custard and strawberry cheesecake followed by a great coffee. While the restaurant lacked atmosphere it made up points on the food and friendly efficient staff.

Mehek
91A Rathgar Road, South Dublin, Rathgar, Dublin

We visited Mehek on a Menupages Voucher which entitled us to a bottle of house wine, two starters, two mains, rice and nann. Service is impeccable, the surroundings are exquisite and the food is delightful. We chose Chowk ki tikki which were Pan fried patties of mashed potatoes stuffed with sultanas, green peas, spiced with finely chopped ginger and fresh coriander and Chicken Tikka Bemisal Tender pieces of chicken breast marinated overnight in hung yoghurt, freshly ground spices and slowly cooked in tandoor, both of which were delightful, there is a sufficient pause to mains and delightful home made popadoms with a selection of four sauces one nicer than the rest, for mains we chose Shahi Korma Fresh pieces of chicken breast cooked with coconut, almond and fresh cream in a very mild sauce, fantastic flavours but just at our spice limit and Gosht Bhuna Pieces of lean lamb cooked with onions, tomatoes, cumin, black pepper and fresh coriander in a thick sauce and garnished with spring onions, the lamb was like velvet, the side of rice was laced with deep fried sweet onion and the best nan bread I have had. We can't wait to go back and sample some of their other dishes.

Whitefriar Grill
16 Aungier Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin

Visited for the first time with a voucher for bottle house wine, any two starters, mains and desserts. From the moment we arrived the service was prompt, efficient and friendly. Down to the food, one word "Amazing". We had one special of scallops with balsamic and quinoa scattered with pomegranate. Scallops were tender melt in the mouth and the quinoa, I'd never had it before but I loved it. The other starter was equally delicious, salad with quinoa and pomegranate, beetroot tzatziki and courgette fritters were equally tasty, Mains were 8oz fillet steak with marrowbone crust, creamed spinach, wild mushroom and pepper sauce, and a 10oz dry aged New York strip lion with garlicky full king prawns and thick cut chips. The steaks were well presented on wooden boards we asked for medium to well, the fillet steak had to be returned to the kitchen as it was rare which was a pity as we had to wait for 5 minutes for it to return, hassle free, but dining with a guest for dinner you expect to eat your meal at the same time! And it did take away from the evening perhaps the loudness of the background music contributed to this? My steak was more medium rare than medium to well done but I only discovered it when I wad half way through the meal. The thick cut chips were in fact home made wedges very tasty. If you have a sweet tooth opt for the chocolate fondue delicitable profiteroles filled with cream, home made marshmallows and a fudge peanut butter to dip in the chocolate sauce, this rendered me speechless, Finished by an excellent coffee. The cheese board had the usual selection of cheeses but was a bit disappointing, bland cheese crackers and quince and a bit of effort could be put into making it more attractive its lost served on the wooden board. Overall we loved it, fantastic value on our voucher, the steak having to be returned was disappointing on reflection we should have sent back both steaks priced at €32.00 for the fillet and €26.00 for the rib eye.

The Italian Corner
23/24 Wellington Quay, Dublin City Centre, Dublin 2, Temple Bar, Dublin

The Italian Corner never fails to disappoint. It ticks all the boxes for five star value for mouthwatering Italian food ranging from an array of pizzas with various bases to choose from, my favourite rocket, parmasean, Parma ham or the equally delicitable vegetarian, pasta dishes cooked to perfection with such a selection you want them all, impeccable service and a great atmosphere, we dined on a menu pages voucher which entitled us to any two pizzas or pasta and a glass of wine for €22, where can you get value like that in Dublin, we will be back again and again.

Bobo's Gourmet Burgers (Dame St)
50-51 Dame St, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Bob has a new premises in Dame Street. The windows are decorated in painted art and make the inside of the restaurant quite dark. The area to the front is small and unless you get an outside table it can be uncomfortable. We had a voucher for any two burgers and sides. The burger range is extensive covering beef, chicken, lamb fish and even caters for vegetarians the side orders of fries are extensive too. We settled for the bacon cheese burger, beef, old dubliner cheese, iceberg lettuce, tomato and mayo. I had the Miss Piggy a pork burger with a slice of chorizo resembling salami rocket, goats cheese, beef tomato. The burgers are huge as are the side of fries, the burgers were excellent, fries very good. Service was great but the restaurant lacked atmosphere probably due to the loud music from the speakers overhead. It's not the type of place you would linger. Just some small points the table wasn't cleaned properly the previous guest left ketchup which transferred to our clothes and the bottles of ketchup were half empty and the lids needed to be cleaned. I'm glad I tried the burgers which were great but I'd probably opt to go to a burger franchise where all the boxes are ticked in every aspect.

Eddie Rockets (Walkinstown)
Lidl Shopping Centre, Walkinstown Avenue, Dublin 12, Walkinstown, Dublin

Eddie Rockets does what it says on the window but pay a price yes they have family deals but don't expect much change out of a €50!euro note. Service is excellent, the restaurant was full and the food wasn't hot when it arrived, the chips had been left as had the wings the best thing was the malt at a steep €3.75. Eddie Rockets is steady and reliable and you will go back. They need to pay attention to their toilets though.

I Monelli restaurant
1-2 Portobello Road , Portobello, Dublin

I Monelli relaunched itself having formerly being known as Il Divo. The menu has been shortened and reflects cuisine from the region that the owner and Manager are from. Service as always is impeccable, starters are a little on the higher end of what you would like to pay but amazing flavours, and attention to detail. We chose calamari and an aubergine stack stuffed with ricotta both presented well and the calamari cooked just right. Mains were cannoli and a prawn risotto both delicious. The restaurant was quiet for a Saturday, its location, it's food and the restaurant means it should be packed to the rafters, the food is excellent but the restaurant needs to focus on what it has, a wood burning stove is evident but not in use, no one ordered pizzas. The starters at the high end price and priced so closely to some of the amazing pastas means that even in D6 you might avoid a starter and have a main.

Martino's Trattoria (Ranelagh)
97 Main street, Ranelagh, Ranelagh, Dublin

Had a voucher deal for two glasses of wine, two pizzas or pastas. The restaurant is in the heart of Ranelagh, we booked an early table so the restaurant wasn't quite full. We opted for two pizzas and they were amazing, pepporini pizza and goats cheese with veg and onions the best and thinnest crust I have ever tasted. The decor is a bit lacking in imagination and while service was adequate they need a better front of house. Great value and food.

Isabel's Restaurant
112 Baggot Street Lower, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

This is my favourite restaurant, if I have an opportunity to have a night out I pick Isabel's. We had a menu pages voucher for two starters, two mains and a glass of Prosecco. Isabel's menu changes constantly so your never sure what to expect as my guest doesn't eat fish they were slightly limited on what to pick for a main course our problem though. I had quail which wad amazing in a creamy gazpacho sauce with micro herbs toasted almonds and minute balls of spiced apple delectable and delicious, my guest had a goats cheese stuffed courgette flower equally well presented and delicious. I'd had steak the last time I was in Isabel's and it was amazing so we both chose steak an 8oz rib eye, with potato, a carrot purée, horseradish cream, beef cheek patty, and ox tongue. We opted for a side of roasted potatoes with a garlic confit. Service was impeccable and our waitress was knowledgable about the food and wines and attentive without being intrusive. Unfortunately the steak was a huge letdown for both of us. We asked for medium and one had to go back to the kitchen as it was just too rare, we were told it was medium rare, but we did say medium. With a sharp steak knife we struggled to cut through the tough steak. Our attentive waitress noticed us struggling and offered to get another steak but at this stage after two bites we had eaten a good portion of our sides and declined. What a disappointment. The beef cheek was delicious deep fried and the ox tongue was exactly what it said cleverly they give the option of the tongue on the side. The seasonal vegetables, Carrots were too al dente for me and I was missing the horseradish as was my guest. Our starters were amazing but the night was let down by a very poor main dish. To be fair we were offered a replacement piece of meat and as we had a voucher we were given a glass of processor on the house. The big thing is maintaining consistency and just on this night Isabel's got it wrong. It won't stop me from going back.

Isabel's Restaurant
112 Baggot Street Lower, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Isabel's is a quaint restaurant in the basement of lower Baggot Street. You are enchanted upon entering how they manage to create such an atmosphere in small surroundings, space is limited but for what they lack in size they make up with mouthwatering food. From brunch to lunch to dinner the menu is cleverly prepared to be short concise full of flavour and packed with fresh Irish produced to tickle the taste buds followed by an amazing selection of interesting and full bodied reds and crisp white wines to accompany a salad starter, a velvet steak as a main or my favourite Toni's bean curd ice cream with chocolate soil. Isabel's is a must you have to try it and you won't be disappointed. It's the new jewel in the crown of restaurants in Dublin.

Vermilion
94-96 Terenure Road, Dublin 6 , Terenure, Dublin

Visited on Friday the jazz night, the restaurant was packed. We had a voucher and got a table near the end of the restaurant. Vermillion never disappoints with its food is consistent and excellent however you pay for this. Without a voucher it can prove to be an expensive night out.

Meghna Tandoori
8-12 Terenure Place, Dublin 6, Terenure, Dublin

Had a voucher deal for two starters, two mains and rice, the restaurant was fairly quiet, the starters arrived promptly a sharing dish of chicken tandoori with salad quite nice. Mains were prawns in a spicy coconut sauce but a supplement of €7 is a bit steep, the other main was a chicken spiced dish with not such much chicken which came with a hard boiled egg in the dish a bit off putting. The food was lovely not as good as the last time but that was down to our choices.

The Table - Portobello
2 Portobello Rd, Dublin, Portobello, Dublin

Booked for four for a special celebration, bit disappointed that the menu had changed from the lady visit. Starters were good, three of us had chicken wings with a blue cheese dressing with small celery sticks, spicy prawns were lovely. Mains were a steak, lamb fillet with tabouli and a burger with fries. Finished with a chocolate mousse tort and baked cheese cake. The food was really lovely but from our last visit the menu and choices were more akin to fine dining and no chocolate fondant!

Paris-Texas Bar & Restaurant
92 High Street, Kilkenny City, Kilkenny

Visited for a birthday celebration in Kilkenny for a few days. Did our research on Paris Texas and were so looking forward to the evening. The venue is amazing, staff are friendly and efficient but the food was so disappointing. Maybe we expected too much a chef from the US an amazing varied menu. We shared two starters chicken wings very nice, a rack of ribs in a BBQ sauce on the side with fries stone cold we had to send them back. Mains were such a let down I ordered hot pastrami in a brioche bun with fries, cold fries. The pastrami looked like thinly slices of roast shiny beef. Tasteless the best part was the bun. The waiter apologised and offered an alternative and explained the pastrami was smoked. If it was smoked then the smoker doesn't work. My guest had the chilli dog in a sour dough bun just passable . Sadly in this case we wouldn't go back which is such a shame as the staff and venue were great.

Isabel's Restaurant
112 Baggot Street Lower, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

We had a rewarding times voucher which entitled us to any two starters, mains and a dessert with a bottle of house white. The restaurant is small and charming with exposed brick walls and delicate lighting. The menu is very clever and short. We we a bit disappointed that one of the mains that we picked out in advance wasn't available. Portions are smaller than average but they compensate by excellent presentation and delicious food, starters of octopus, squid ink and crab croquette were a delicious morsel, my guest had a herb panacotta with duck which was equally delicious. In lieu of the fish course that wasn't available I had rib eye steak presented on a wooden board with micro herbs and mouth watering veg. The triple cooked chips were the best I have had and the steak was like velvet and the best I have eaten in any restaurant. My guest had the most amazing gnocchi. We finished off the night with the most amazing dessert a chocolate mousse with soil and ice cream, my guest had the cheese board pricey at €10.00 and very small portions. The staff are attentive but at times hassled. There is a lengthy break in between courses which we enjoyed. I'd definitely go back.

il Divo Restaurant

Il Divo is an authentic Italian Restaurant in the heart of Rathgar Village beside Comans Pub. The restaurant's food, warm welcome and just a feeling of being at home but yet your eating amazing food make a visit a must. The staff are friendly efficient and Italian as is the owner Gianni who is always there to meet and greet you with a warm welcome. If you haven't been then go you won't be disappointed.

Meghna Tandoori
8-12 Terenure Place, Dublin 6, Terenure, Dublin

The restaurant is very authentic and has a old world feel to it so it may not appeal to everyone however the range of food on offer and from different regions is very impressive. The minute the food arrived I was in heaven, my guest shared a sizzling tandoori platter. two amazing mains, rice and the best naan I have had in a long time. The food is served on a trolley which seems very old fashioned but again adds to the old world style Indian. The food was so good I bought another voucher to go back.

Frite Haus
87 Camden St, Camden Street, Dublin

Had a GroupOn Voucher deal for two hotdogs with frites worth €12.00. I had the venison hotdog with pickled red cabbage and crispy onions it was good could have been a little hotter. My guest had the original hot dog nothing special again just hot enough. The venue is very cool, the staff are efficient and friendly. The frites are a disaster. A handful of frozen chips with a short menu you need good chips. Because we had a voucher we had to add on our sodas and the option of paying extra for a dipping sauce. Otherwise the bill would have been much higher. €12.00 for what we paid fitted the bill. Wouldn't rush back though which is a pity.

Kostas Greek Restaurant
69 Dame Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Walked in off the street for their lunch deal, two courses for €9.90. Bit misleading as there is no starter the two courses are a main and a coffee. The restaurant was empty only two other people and I picked a window table freezing every time the door opened. Staff are pleasant, the food is what you would expect and if your coming in for a quick lunch it took a while for the mains which on a good point means everything is freshly cooked. Was expecting a bit more, had a lamb kebab, with fries, the naan a bit disappointing but maybe I'm used to the commercial kebabs and Beirut Express is a real jewel in the crown. Would I go back yes but maybe at night time for an atmosphere and to test the kitchen when the restaurant is in full swing.

The Table - Portobello
2 Portobello Rd, Dublin, Portobello, Dublin

We had a Dining Room voucher for €80.00. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and is newly decorated. We were met by a lovely Manager and shown to our table upstairs. Service was excellent, the restaurant was just full and the food was the best we have eaten. I had a starter of scallops with black pudding, the attention to detail and the presentation of the food was like a Five star restaurant. My guest had a goats cheese tart again taste, flavour and presentation was amazing. We are big foodies and the chef in the kitchen knows what they are cooking and cooking to a high standard. The mains were just as good, I opted for duck my guest had steak cooked to perfection, my only criticism was that I needed a bit more jus with my duck which was divine. Just when we thought it couldn't get any better we shared a chocolate fondant, which is baked to order. Michelle Roux could have been in the kitchen it was that amazing. The whole experience from start to finish was the best meal in a Dublin for a long time, the teaser before the meal of basil pesto and olive oil and a home made bread was a lovely touch.

The Italian Corner have the recipe for success. Great menu pages vouchers deals €22 for two pizzas and two glasses of wine. The restaurant is always full, tables turned around promptly, excellent service and a jazz singer at the weekend. The food is superb on our voucher had a veggie pizza and an Americana Pizza best in a Dublin. Great food, excellent service in the heart of Temple Bar. Don't miss out.

Dillingers
47 Ranelagh Village, Dublin 6, Ranelagh, Dublin

We had a rewarding Times voucher worth €76 which entitled us to any two starters, mains, desserts and a bottle of French red or white wine. The atmosphere is electric, we had two bar seats which were comfortable, felt like a diner in NYC. Bit des appointed that we didn't have access to the full menu as we had picked our food well in advance. Just because you have a voucher doesn't mean you will pick the most expensive dishes! Started with pork belly in soy with crunchy salad. My guest had pasta in a foam dressing, amazing. Mains were steak cooked to perfection, chicken with fries and coleslaw in a horseradish dressing which didn't work. Deserts were chocolate pie and panacotta. The wine was amazing. Dillinger's is a great experience but it's expensive clearly packed to capacity this isn't an issue. Would I go back, yes as a treat better value available out there. Only down side unisex toilets and wet floors. Other than that only compliments and friendly and efficient staff.

Great value voucher from Menupages for two starters and two mains. Il Divo is a gorgeous local restaurant. The restaurant was full on arrival, we had a prawns and leeks to start and an amazing salad. We opted for two pizzas which were gorgeous. The restaurant needs more staff while waiting two people left as no one came over to them just a small observation for the Manager to address. The menu without a voucher is priced highly.

Peperina Bistro Garden
25 Dunville Avenue, Dublin 6, Ranelagh, Dublin

We purchased a Menu pages Voucher for three courses with a glass of wine for €35. The Bistro is just gorgeous, a lovely homely atmosphere. We ordered goats cheese crostini with caramelised onion and chicken wings with a blue cheese celery dip. The chicken wings were plump and juicy and the best we have eaten, the crostini was delicious. We chose BBQ chicken skewers, triple cooked fries and home made slaw, very well presented, I chose sea bream in a spicy tomato sauce with juicy mussels and crisp potatoes. We had two glasses of house white and finished off with two desserts a panacotta, and apple crumble. The food was amazing, very well presented, perfect timings in between courses, definitely worth a visit, can't wait to go back and try brunch. Just a small thing for allergy suffers, have your menu listed with tags (contains nuts) there was a small amount of nut in he crumble. From a personal preference I hate coriander and although its found in a lot of dishes, Indian/MexicanI didn't expect to find it in my sauce, as it was fresh it didn't prevent me from eating the dish. This is an amazing place and we'll definitely be back.

2 Terenure Road East, (Above Comans), Rathgar, Dublin

We had a voucher for 4. Il Divo never fails to disappoint, a warm greeting from Gianni and staff. The menu has been shortened slightly but you still have a good variety to chose from. Two of the guests had prawns with balsamic and fried leeks, juice plump prawns and a generous portion of leeks presented well. One caprese salad and a special starter of veal in an amazing tuna and mayonnaise dressing with capers which is now on the menu permanently and is a must! Mains were Cannoli, Spaghetti Bolognese, fresh home made pasta in a delicious sauce, one vegetarian pizza and chicken, spinach in a creamy cheese sauce with fettuccini pasta, topped off with bottle house white. Excellent food in lovely surroundings. We'll be back.

Punjabi By Nature Indian Restaurants & Takeaway
15 Ranelagh Village, South Dublin, Ranelagh, Dublin

We had two €40.00 vouchers through menu pages for 4 for 8pm on a Saturday. We had never been at the restaurant and first impressions of the menu were very good. The restaurant was undergone extensive renovation and looks very authentic. We arrived about 15 minutes early. The staff are young and pleasant, we were given our menus and when one of the party enquirer about a dish on the menu they didn't know anything about the menu. Service was very slow, we had our wine order reasonably quickly but it took a while for our actual order to be taken. It then took over 45 minutes for our starters to arrive. I had beef chilli fry. The beef was chewy and grizzly, the flavour was very good but the temperature of the food was tepid. Two other guests had Aloo Ki Tikki,Crispy pan fried potato cakes stuffed with green peas & glazed with tamarind which was delicious & Punjabi Special Platter of chicken, lamb, calamari. We had a long break before our mains arrived, Tandoori Mixed Grill Highly recommended by PBN Chef, A mix of jumbo prawns (1) chicken tikka (1) lamb chop (1) tandoori chicken (1). Chicken Tikka Masala, Fresh skewered chicken tikka in a rich creamy tomato sauce, the best dish of the night, Maharaja Thali is the perfect way of savouring a complete traditional Indian meal, presentation was suburb, and finally Varthu, Lamb cooked in a fragrant combination of pepper corn, pathar ke phool and coriander finished with fresh curry leaves. We had to send back the chicken tikka to be reheated and the general temperature of the food could have been hotter, perhaps a personal choice but having waited so long for our food we didn't want any further delays. We had to constantly ask for water, our wine ran out and the restaurant upgraded our wine to a more expensive bottle at no extra cost, and unfortunately on the night the Visa/MasterCard was out of order. Overall the food is very good, without the voucher it could be expensive, the service needs to improve.

Corfu Greek Restaurant
12 Parliment Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Dropped in on the way to Pink in the 02. The restaurant was half full and we walked in off the street with no booking. The enjoyment of Corfu is the value for money, although they have to compete the menu has increased in price to €21.95 with a supplement for Steak and Lamb chops. You can't argue with the food, its delicious, the service is impeccable. I've been here four times now and notice the decor is a bit tired, my chair was fabric and badly stained and there are a few tweaks that can be made in the toilets. That aside if you want decent authentic food at average prices call into Corfu.

Milano (Clarion Quay)
Unit 6, Excise Walk, Clarion Quay, Dublin 1, City Centre, IFSC, Dublin

We visited Milano's availing of the deal where you got a main course for €3 if you bought another main. We were early enough, no booking and were promptly seated. The restaurant fills quickly as its the main stop off point for any concert goers at the 02. The pizzas were to die for extra thin crispy base, one pepperoni and one goats cheese with red onion etc which I reluctantly shared. Good value if you don't order alcohol, but if you wanted to go on a budget share a pizza and a salad. An enjoyable experience can't wait to go back

Corfu Greek Restaurant
12 Parliment Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

We have visited this jewel in the crown restaurant on a few occasions but never got to review the restaurant. If you want a delicious authentic Greek menu then a visit to the restaurant is a must. A great value menu for €19.95, listed as four courses, starters mains, dessert and coffee. I chose calamari cooked to perfection accompanied by a rocket salad, my partner had a delicious authentic Greek salad with melt in the mouth feta. I had lamb cutlets which were perfectly cooked, medium accompanied by home fries, bit disappointed that the cutlets now incur a €4 supplement as does the steak but I had to have them, the pepper sauce has much improved. My partner had moussaka which was very nice although you don't normally find potato in an authentic dish. We chose baklava the best I've tasted followed by two amazing coffees. The wine list is reasonably priced and the staff omitted this from our bill which we pointed out. The restaurant had fantastic food, a good atmosphere and excellent service with charming staff. If I were to be overly critical from an aesthetic point of view, spruce up your toilets, very clean but loose skirting boards and a few other very minor details could be improved on.

il Divo Restaurant
2 Terenure Road East, (Above Comans), Rathgar, Dublin

We liked it so much we came back to Il Divo on a deal purchased through Menu Pages for two Martini's, two glasses of Wine and any two mains. The restaurant has a capacity of 50 and was probably half full a lot of tables on deals. The Manager Gianni recognised us from the week before, I benefited from two martini's as my partner thought they were too sweet, a personal choice, two glasses of wine, then our main courses. A varied menu to choose from, pizza's made in house, with an open kitchen where you can see your pizza being made. I chose charcoal grilled lamb cutlets, on a bed of garlic spinach with creamy mash and a roast pepper sauce, my partner couldn't resist a pizza again, I sampled a slice of he pepperoni pizza which was melt in the mouth. The lamb chops were divine cooked perfectly as I requested medium, the spinach was delicious and the mash creamy. The presentation of the food on the plate was superb. The deal is great value, we ended the dinner with two macchiato's possibly the best I have ever had. A nice gesture at the end of the night our coffee's were on the house. Another lovely meal, fantastic food I can't wait to visit again.

il Divo Restaurant
2 Terenure Road East, (Above Comans), Rathgar, Dublin

My partner purchased a deal through menu pages for €25. The deal covers two glasses of wine and any mains, there is a €5 euro supplement for steak. The restaurant was half full of various age groups. We were promptly shown to out table by a charming Italian waiter, service was excellent and attentive, two lovely glasses of wine then our mains, the pizza's are hand made in the restaurant, with a wide selection to choose from, the are so big they could be shared. My partner had a pepperoni pizza, mouth watering with the thinnest crust, I went for sea food pasta and asked for a little chilli to spice up the dish. The pasta was cooked to perfection, the prawns were large and juicy, mussel's, clams and calamari all cooked to perfection. We ended the night with the best Italian coffee. Il Divo is a must to visit, the restaurant is delightful, we enjoyed the food so much we bought a deal for the following week through Menu Pages.

il Divo Restaurant
2 Terenure Road East, (Above Comans), Rathgar, Dublin

This was our first time in the restaurant as it is under new management. We visited on a wet winters night and the restaurant was full with families, couples and a good atmosphere. Glad to see that the giant TV was off which can be a distraction. The new menu has been shortened and there is a good choice, I had home made broccoli soup which was delicious, my two guests shared a anti-pasti comprising of Italian cured meats, grilled prawns wrapped in leeks, salmon, anchovies, calamari, and delicious bread. We ordered two bottles of Italian Frascati, mains were delicious, one guest had a pizza enough for two to share, home made ravioli mushroom in a creamy sauce and I had seafood linguini, clams, mussel's, prawns, calamari. The service was good but from previous visits they need to be a bit more attentive. The table behind us has Italian guests who happened to be the wine importer and he was thrilled that we chose his wine. Il Divo is a restaurant you can pop into for a delicious pizza, have a family night or enjoy a romantic meal. We will definitely be back.

Damascus Gate
10 Upper Camden Street, Dublin 2, Camden Street, Dublin

I purchased a deal through menu pages. The restaurant was full to capacity and very cramped. There was hardly any room to move. Our starters were the best part of the food experience but with a waiting time of one hour! Hummus, served with home made pitta, vine leave rolls, roasted aubergine. The mains were disappointing, two different types of chicken dishes were ordered and two identical dishes arrived both tasting the same. The Damascus Gate Special consisted of a half a baby chicken stuffed and on a bed of rice and minced lamb, when it arrived it was a large half a chicken, tasteless, the flavour was in the skin, the rice was just ok and I'd to search for the minced lamb there was no stuffing.the final dish of charcoal grilled lamb was quite dry and was supposed to come with hummus we had to request this separately and were annoyed when it appeared as a separate bill, because we had invited guests to join us we didn't want to cause any embarrassment we paid €6.50 for the hummus. The BYOB is a great idea but only if you have enough room to enjoy your wine and have access to the toilets. Damascus Gate has the potential to be very good, they need to concentrate on their service, less covers to improve the quality of their food, the kitchen couldn't cope with the orders neither could the staff, sadly on this occasion we won't be back.

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

We visited Cafe Toplis and oped for the Early Bird Menu unbelievable value at €14.95 for 2 courses & Tea or Coffee. The restaurant was full and we were accommodated downstairs although empty when we arrived it soon filled up. Cafe Toplis doesn't fuss about there is a simple wine list, whites and reds which run from €11.00 to €21 with house wines. The bulk is made up of Australian, Italian, and Spanish. The Early Bird consists of five starters, and no less than 16 main courses ranging from pasta's to pizzas, minute steak and chicken. Service was excellent and attentive, although the we had to ask for our water jug to be filled a couple of times a small oversight. I had Alette Di Pollo Piccanti, char grilled chicken wings marinated in spicy tomato sauce served with a mixed salad and garlic dip, my guests chose the Caesar Salad, crisp cos lettuce in a mouth watering classic Caesar dressing, maybe a little less crunch with the crotons again its a matter of taste. While Toplis cater for every taste it would be a sin not to have a pizza they have a proper wood fired pizza oven, I had Pizza Rucola, Milano Salami, Fresh Rocket, parmesan Shavings, Mozzarella and Tomato Sauce, my guests had Pizza Caprese, fresh tomatoes, basil, olives, mozzarella and tomato sauce, and Pizza Quattrostagioni, Pepperoni, mushrooms, olive, roasted peppers, Mozzarella and tomato sauce. The pizzas were excellent, with a crisp, tin base with the unmistakable flavour that comes from a wood fired oven. A great night washed down with two bottles of house white. One of the things I liked best about Toplis was this very flexible in their attitude - both friendly and accommodating and great value for money!
