Third time to visit and the quality of the food and service has been great each time. The menu caters for all tastes and the food arrives quickly and is presented really well for 'pub grub'. Sometimes you just want a toasted sandwich and even that arrives packed with deliciousness with fries and salad for just €8. The Marble City is a firm favourite now for food.

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

A lovely welcome by friendly staff, lots of tips and explanations on their menu and a free corkage on our brought wine and beer. The food was really delicious. We had experienced great middle-eastern food before but still blown away with the flavours. I recommend the mezzo platter for a starter between 3-4. For mains we ordered lamb dishes and I a chicken kebab dish....we rated the kebab the best as it was more crisp. The music and belly-dancing was a nice touch and the restaurant had a really good vibe on a Thursday early evening. We are definitely coming back again with friends.

Wrights Anglers Rest
Strawberry Beds, West Dublin, Dublin 20, Chapelizod, Dublin

Brilliant spot for Sunday lunch, with music, ambience and great food. The fish and chips is heaven. The welcoming service from staff and the Manager is what makes me go back regularly.

Pizzicato
21 Corrig Road, Sandyford, Sandyford, Dublin

Visit this gem at lunchtime about every 6 weeks as a Friday treat and it's best to go slightly earlier or later as it gets so busy for sit-down and takeaway alike. It is like stepping into a New York Italian - the host and his team are visibly cooking with passion and serving up some great Italian/US fare. The Philly sandwich is a classic, as are the meatballs and the pizza. Good portions - great value for money.

Hole In The Wall Phoenix Park
Blackhorse Avenue, Navan Road, Dublin

Visited on a recent sunny Sunday after a walk in the Park. Usually it's a cosy winter place but it was still good in summer as there are now tables outside. Also a GAA game on - and the TV is never too intrusive or loud to inhibit conversation. The service was really good and prompt. The 3 x Tapas dishes for €19.95 as tasty as ever - though I wish they would add some new ones and maybe another seafood type besides just prawns. The lamb shank was excellent, the lasagne excellent - the main dishes are all good value for money and have real home-cooked flavour. Just the Tapas need a little adventure. Still a favourite place and look forward to going back especially when it's cold and the fire is lit.

Yamamori Izakaya
12/13 South Great Georges Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Enjoyed almost all of the dishes from the Japas menu by now and they are so tasty. Particularly recommend the beetroot and lychee salad dish and the venison dish - both of which were unforgettable. Great atmosphere. If just one or two of you, the marble bar is a great place to sit.

Kathmandu Kitchen Nepalese & Indian Restaurant
18 Dame Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

A group of 6 of us had a lovely Nepalese meal here. Really delicious food where both the meat and the spices had great flavour and served in authentic Nepalese dishes. The service is impeccable, plus the atmosphere very tranquil and cosy.

Morrison Grill
The Morrison, Ormond Quay Lower, Dublin 1, City Centre North, Dublin

Delicious food and friendly service. All of the dishes had great flavour - and I recommend the sea bass & chorizo. The set menu is good value. There is an elegance about the decor and it's really bright and airy. Rather than being in a dark dining room you can enjoy the entire hotel from your table and watch the world go by on the quays outside. It's a very relaxing dining area. Will be back.

Musashi Noodles and Sushi Bar
15 Capel Street, Dublin 1 , City Centre North, Dublin

Fine Japanese dishes and sushi at a good price. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful too. I will be back.

Schooners @ McKevitts Village Hotel
Market Square, Carlingford, Carlingford, Louth

Had dinner here one Saturday recently. The food was very very good - flavoursome, cooked perfectly and well presented. We ordered mussels, chowder, the Mexican medley and a cheeseboard - cannot fault any of it. Staff friendly and helpful. Nice atmosphere. There are many places to eat in Carlingford - I would recommend this place highly.

Burritos & Blues
2 Wexford Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin

My burrito-loving companion rates the Silver Burrito as the finest in Dublin. The carnitas is deliciously moist - the beans are excellent. Their salad toppings are very fresh. Great service - relaxed atmosphere. Very little not to like at Burrito & Blues.

Boojum
Millennium Walkway, Dublin 1, City Centre North, Italian Quarter, Dublin

Great atmosphere and sounds. The staff are so friendly, and patient while you choose your fillings. The food is incredibly tasty. Visited several times now and I have to recommend the tacos with the smokey chicken - divine. Plus you can alternate the fillings and try the equally good pork and chili. The burrito bowl is packed with flavour too - no ingredient overpowers the other. It has a fast turnover of diners - vital for the small seating space. It is not the place to lounge and chat after your meal! But if you want fast, tasty, filling grub - with a cold beer - Boojum is your place.

Frankies Italian Bar and Grill
42 Temple Bar Square, Temple Bar, Dublin

Cosy place with impeccable service. The staff are so friendly. The early bird is very good value before 7pm - the choice is okay. My companion had the steak which was very tasty. I had the chicken and it was delicious. I will be back.

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

We love Eddie's in Walkinstown - conjoined with a Lidl shop on a Friday evening. Tucked away. The staff are excellent - I admire the way they upsell. The combo is great value. Free wifi was great - but it's been non-active over the last few weeks.

The Bull & Castle and F.X. Buckley Steakhouse
5-7 Lord Edward Street, Christchurch, Dublin 8, City Centre South, Dublin

Visited on a Sunday early evening - a really cosy pub to walk into, especially after a busy day in town. One of us was a micro-beer fan and loved the beer selections and variety. Beer menu is great - even just to read beer-history while you're waiting. The food menu looked good - loads of choice. Three of us each ordered steak, the kidneys and the fish pie. Sirloin was delicious - but seriously overpriced. It came with wedges and a globby pepper sauce and that was it. I know it's a city centre location but I would go elsewhere for the same or better quality steak and with the trimmings included. Kidneys, my friend reported were tasty - but overpriced and they were slighty too salty. The fish pie was way too salty. Spent a lot of the time trying to catch waitors' attention for more drinks, the bill etc. The location suggests that tourists are their main market. Go for the beer - go elsewhere for food.

Seagrass of Portobello Bridge
30 South Richmond Street, Dublin 8, Portobello, Dublin

Visited for the Early Bird with 5 friends. The basement smelled a little damp - but we were happy with our table, and it was a really homely setting. The food was really really good. Three of us had the risotto and it really was the best I've had - just perfect. The chicken dish was tasty, but a bit on the salty side. Service excellent - attentive but not overly so. The restaurant got really busy an hour after we arrived so the atmosphere just got better. Terrific value - because of the BYO wine policy. I will be back - and looking forward to it. If risotto is your thing, go here.

Very tasty tapas of varying proportions. The cheeseboard is excellent!

The Marble City Tearooms @ Langtons House Hotel
68 High Street, Kilkenny City, Kilkenny

A party of 5 of us arrived without a booking but we were catered for so well. The staff couldn't have been nicer. Extensive menu. The food arrived very quickly and it was all delicious. The Moroccan Tagine was highly recommended by friends. I enjoyed the alternative version of Caesar Salad with prawns. Will definately revisit when in Kilkenny again.

Deep
12 West Pier, North Co. Dublin, Howth, Dublin

Fantastic seafood. I went here with 2 friends and each one of us loved the flavours of our starters and main dishes. Where it wins on taste it lacks in atmosphere though.

Merry Ploughboy Pub
Edmondstown Road, Rockbrook, Rathfarnham, Dublin

I often stop here on my roll-down from a day's hiking in the mountains. It has a lovely homely atmosphere, really efficient staff and the food is wholesome. The menu bursts with choice, and I'm pretty sure nearly everything on it is Irish-sourced. It's a firm favourite for autumn and winter - great open fire.

Overends Cafe
Upper Kilmacud Road, Dundrum, Dublin

I chose this for a working lunch today and I was really happy with the ambiance, good food, service and value for money. I will go again. Please let me reserve a table next time though as it was essential today.

Port House Pintxo
12 Eustace Street, Dublin 2, Temple Bar, Dublin

Dropped in for Saturday afternoon lunch. I had two beautiful pintxos - one beef, followed by ham, with a glass of house red. All delicious. Having just returned from a pintxo-laden visit to Bilbao, the ones served to me in Bar Pintxos were no different in quality and taste Some dishes are pricier than others. But the atmosphere, menu choice and service makes it worth the extra euros. Plus you can order as you eat - I like that option. I will come back in the evening with friends.

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

Super place for dinner. 5 happy diners ordered the starter platters which were great. The main courses were even better and very generous. Great food with lots of herbs. The French-style decor is very opulent and the live guitarist an added bonus. Definitely going back.

Dante (Blanchardstown)
Blanchardstown Shopping Centre, Dublin 15, Blanchardstown, Dublin

I am also praising the melon-parma starter: it is really lovely. Pre-dressed with olive oil and black pepper. My young friend ordered the tiger prawns and they were excellent also. Our pizzas could have done with 5 more mins in the oven but were delicious...and dessert was not an option because of the generous course 1 and 2. I am happy there is somewhere nice to eat post-shop at Blanch amid the fast food joints.

Hemmingways
2B Vernon Avenue, Dublin 3, Clontarf, Dublin

Two seafood-lovers visited Hemingway's on a warm summer evening and it felt like we were in a Portuguese fishing village. Ordered the prawns and crab claws - both excellent - although small portions. I thought there would be more fish varieties on the menu which is usually the reason for us to return. Hemingway's has the potential to be a top seafood restaurant but I think the lack of creativity with the menu and the interior is holding it back.

The Saddle Room @ The Shelbourne
The Shelbourne Hotel, 27 St Stephen's Green, Dublin, City Centre South, Dublin

Here for a celebration dinner and loved the food. Huge choice of dishes - maybe too much? The steak was cooked to perfection. The oysters and the crab starters were so fresh and full of taste. Service excellent and the staff really knew their dishes. We were thankfully seated in a light-filled part of the restaurant as I would have been really annoyed, like other reviewers, if we were in the dark section. The layout and lighting of the restaurant is not conducive to a good atmosphere - the restaurant falls down heavily in this regard.

Tippenyaki
39 Castlewood Avenue, South Dublin , Rathmines, Dublin

Very tasty sushi / sashimi and so elegantly presented. We enjoyed watching the delicious meat and veg dishes being cooked under our noses at the bar while the waiters juggled knives. Great service and atmosphere. We will definitely be back to Tippenyaki to try more dishes.

Yamamori Sushi, Tengu
38-39 Lower Ormond Quay, Dublin 1, City Centre North, Dublin

Gorgeous Sushi. We selected the chef's choice and waiter was very helpful when we customised that choice slightly as we didn't want squid or eel. Service overall was very friendly - atmosphere relaxed, restaurant simple, clean and pleasant. From the outside - Ormond Quay - you think it might be dark and small [which I have a fear of on sunny days] - but it is long and elegant, with a sun-filled courtyard at the back, which fills the whole restaurant in daylight. It was quiet for a busy Sunday afternoon - and I think its location on the quays may be the reason. We were well satisfied [for lunch] - adult and child - with 8 large pieces of sushi between us for €15.00. A small glass of wine cost €5.70 which I thought a bit over the average on price, but wine and beer is a pricey luxury everywhere these days. I'll be back to Yamamori for dinner.
