Liberty Grill restaurant
32 Washington Street, Cork City, Cork
Reviewed 25th August 2010 ( visited 24th August 2010 )Liberty Grill continues to be the best value eatery in Cork. They use quality produce from local suppliers. It must be the best place in Ireland for breakfast, eggs benedict to die for! Saturday morning is normally busy but absolutely worth the wait. I can't recommend it enough.
Man Friday Restaurant
Scilly, Kinsale, Cork
Reviewed 05th August 2010 ( visited 04th August 2010 )This restaurant never fails to deliver. The food as always was fantastic and the service was excellent. Still a bit pricey considering the economic climate (starter salad €10) but food is always top class. Keep up the good work!
120 Ranelagh, Dublin 6, Ranelagh, Dublin
This is our 3rd time eating here and we have never been disappointed. The set menu, 3 courses for €30, is slightly more expensive than some other restaurants but well worth it for a number of reasons, the choice and the quality. You can choose from 6-7 starters (including prawns, three cheese plate and a very generous portion of chicken wings), 8-9 main courses and 4 desserts including 2 very generous side dishes. The quality is fantastic and best of all, real potato chips, none of those frozen skinny grease sticks! Service is excellent as well. Will definitely be back.

Had a very pleasant meal here to celebrate a birthday. Most dishes were great but I was extremely disappointed with my fillet steak, quite tough. Wine menu was extensive. Great atmosphere, lovely decor.
Dundrum Town Centre, Dublin 14, Dundrum, Dublin
Lovely but pricey. We opted for the tasting menu which is reasonable value. Food is delicious, very flavoursome and immaculately presented. The service is great and I love that they explain your dish for you and what everything is. Desserts were amazing. Drinks also a bit pricey so only go on special occasions.
South Street Restaurant
Great Georges Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
This is one place you\'re better off passing by, food grossly overpriced and pretty poor. €2.95 for a mineral and €3.95 for very very poor garlic bread. Don\'t be fooled by their 2 courses for €10, not everything on the menu is included but this is not clear! Avoid at all costs.
The Butcher Grill
92 Ranelagh Village, South Dublin, Ranelagh, Dublin
Food lovely but restaurant is a bit on the small side and not the most comfortable when you have a table of 8 loudish Americans beside you. However I cannot fault the food or the service.
4 Rathfarnham Road, Dublin 6W, Terenure, Dublin
This is one of a handful of restaurants that I have visited that has genuine Menupages offers. They offer everything on the menu as part of the menupages deal with small supplements for some steaks which is reasonable. Food is always very tasty and staff are exceptionally friendly. Well done.
Four Liars Bistro
The Butter Exchange, Shandon, Cork City, Cork
A group of 4 of us bought a discount website voucher e.g Grabone for this restaurant as it features quite regularly on various discount websites. That really should have set alarm bells ringing. We were obliged to order from \'Value\' menu which should really be called a \'Valueless\' menu - garlic bread €5.95, get the picture! All the items on the menus were grossly overpriced and already before we even ordered our food we felt we had been ripped off. I ordered a minute steak which was supposed to come with onions and mushrooms. Instead it came with a field of onions on a bed of mash with, wait for it, stuffing! The steak was as tough as old boots and very sinewy. Others had the pork and the quesadilla and were equally unimpressed. One of the party ordered apple tart and another ordered ice cream (€6.50). The apple tart looked like somebody had accidentally stood on it, it was about 3mm off the plate and was accompanied by about a litre and a half of whipped cream. I hope you get the picture about this place, poor quality overpriced food. It is a huge pity because people will not return or recommend the place if the believe they have been ripped off. We ordered two bottles of wine and had no problem spending double the voucher amount but alas will not be returning.

REAL CHIPS FROM REAL POTATOES PLEASE! Having tried several times to get a table in Electric I finally made a booking for Friday 1st April. We were a party of 3 and had starters and mains. Starters were pate (1) and duck (2). Having heard mixed reviews about the portion sizes I was pleasantly surprised at the large starters, a large wedge of pate and a nice few slices of duck. The mains ordered were the burger, fillet steak and fish 'n chips. The burger while small was very tasty and the fish and steak were delicious. The presentation was great. Service was also good. The only fly in the ointment were the 'triple cooked chips'. They appeared to be frozen chips and were awful. I think the triple cooked meant that the majority of them were were small crispy bits of overcooked chips. Come on electric - for €28 for a steak the least one can expect is some real chips made from real potatoes. Perhaps you should visit G's to try their delicious 'real' chips made from real potatoes.

Gourmet Burger Bistro
8 Bridge Street, Cork City, Cork
Visited Gourmet Burger for lunch. Lunch menu €9.95 which is great value considering a normal main course is approx €13. Portions naturally smaller than mains but sufficient for lunch. Food tasty. The sting is in the tail as desserts are expensive.
