My husband and I dined here last Saturday, beautiful wild Mushroom Risotto and Scallops for starters, followed by your signature Fish and chips for himself and Sole in the Bone for me. A perfectly chilled Albariño to accompany this lovely meal and a shared cheeseboard and expresso to finish a most enjoyable evening with very efficient and attentive staff. Can't wait to return.

The Cookbook Cafe
57a Glasthule Rd, Glasthule, Sandycove, Dublin

My husband and I ate here on Friday 3/6/16. We were using a voucher from The Taste, 3 courses and a pre dinner drink I had a glass of bubbly and John had a beer as our pre dinner drinks, the I had the prawns and John had steak tartar for starters, followed by a lovely flavoured chicken dish for me and the Bouillabaisse for John. After a while we ventured for dessert a lemon tart for me and John choose just to have ice cream. A lovely bottle of Albariño and two coffees rounded off a very enjoyable evening. Looking forward to another visit soon.

Beeftro - Balfe Street
5 Balfe St, City Centre South, Dublin

My husband and. I had a lovely meal in this restaurant. I had a voucher for a 3 course meal and a bottle of wine for 2. I started with a fabulous salad with rocket, avocado and deep,fried kale, my husband had the chicken wings, both of us had steak and fries, desserts were very tasty, we upgraded the wine to one that we preferred, absolutely no problem. Great value, great service on a very very wet Sunday evening.

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

A warm welcome upon our arrival, asked for voucher, as I had mentioned this when I emailed the reservation. We were shown to our table upstairs, place very busy with a good atmosphere, nice table overlooking the Canal, swans an added bonus. Menus, water were brought to the table, and bread with dips, but a bit surprised that there were no side plates. I chose Ceviche of cod, mango, chilli, ginger, coriander & red onion w/ sweet potato crisps, very interesting and quite refreshing. My husband chose Moroccan prawns, tomato, chili, garlic & basil, crusty bread, very tasty indeed. For mains, I had Pan seared duck breast, potato & celeriac mash, savoy cabbage with pancetta & hazelnuts red wine & blackberry jus, and John had Pan seared hake, chorizo & minestrone of winter root vegetables , creamy mash, both dishes appealed greatly, full of flavour, clean plates all around. There was a good choice of wine, reasonably priced. Two coffees to round off a very enjoyable eating experience. Hope to return soon.

Very enjoyable experience, my husband had the Black Sole, absolutely fabulous, really fresh and vey meaty. I had the Duck which was cooked to perfection. The accompanying vegetables were excellent too.

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

My husband and I visited on Thursday 27 March last, we had the Prix Fixe Menu, as my daughter had purchased it on one of those deal sites. Received a lovely welcome at reception and we had a drink at the bar before going upstairs. I found the atmosphere to be very friendly and efficient even though the restaurant was quite full. I had the salmon for starters and my husband had the rabbit, I chose Lamb and John had the Hake. The flavours were just amazing. Dessert didn't disappoint either, I had the salted caramel and John had the Orange and Passion fruit. As we had finished our wine, we were advised that we could have same by the glass, a nice touch!, but we did anyway. All in all a lovely evening.

Rolys Bistro
7 Ballsbridge Terrace, Dublin, Ballsbridge, Dublin

Roly's Bistro 5.0 star review: From start to finish it was a most enjoyable evening, food, atmosphere, service nothing one could complain about. Quite a varied menu with something to suit most, this was my second visit to Roly's using vouchers and on both occasions have been very pleased. Lovely not to have any restrictions, and to be able to choose anything from the a la carte, as in some restaurants there are often supplements, or you are given a separate menu, often feel like a poor relation. I found using the vouchers in Roly's to be very understated and discreet.

Belluccis
22-30 Merrion Road, Dublin 4, Ballsbridge, Dublin

table for 2 - fillet steak excellent; rib-eye somewhat disappointing; good selection of Italian wines - atmosphere somewhat let down by the volume of music which did not allow for comfortable conversation - young lady serving us was very pleasant.

Et Voila
8 Irishtown, New Ross, Wexford

18/5/2011 Et Voila, Irishtown, New Ross, Co Wexford. My husband and I had travelled down from Dublin to spend the evening with my brother and his partner. My brother had booked this restaurant for the four of us on Wednesday 18 May last. A bit nervous when he said it was a French restaurant – I was thinking fussy, small portions and expensive!! Well what a surprise to find a very cosy bistro with a warm welcome. Water and bread were brought to the table, the bread was delicious. Menus were handed around and what a choice – we decided on pan fried scallops, wood pigeon ( for two of us) and crab claws. For mains one of us chose duck breast while the rest of us picked fillet steak each cooked to our preferred choice. Béarnaise sauce, vegetables and potatoes were also included. Having looked at the wine list I asked the waiter for his recommendations, he suggested that the one I was looking at might not suit our food choices and recommended a wine from southern France – turned out to be a very nice one and we ordered a second bottle.(Cahors, Heritage Chateau du Cedre) Getting a little full now so we decided on the dessert platter for two and without any prompting four plates and forks appeared on the table, three coffees and one tea later we were all agreed that my brothers choice of restaurant had been excellent. These desserts were good enough to die for! The chef came out for a chat and asked did we enjoy our evening – a nice touch. I wish this restaurant was closer to Dublin I would certainly be a regular. To sum up the food and service is excellent and prices are very reasonable. Well worth a visit.

Pichet
14/15 Trinity Street, Dublin , City Centre South, Dublin

My husband and I visited Pichet on Thursday 29 August 2010. Nice warm welcome and our table was ready when we arrived – lovely buzzy atomosphere – John wasn’t too impressed with his view out the window(dustbins) – maybe some frosted glass would obscure and improve the view. Drinks order was taken and we were asked if we would like tap or bottled water nice to be given the choice. I order the Castletown Bere Crab, Chorizo mayonnaise, mussels & Clams a la Greque with sour bread – absolutely beautiful. John had the seared tuna which was a bit rare but good. For mains John had the Suckling Pig, I asked for the Haddock but it was finished and had cod as a substitute and I was really pleased. We ordered a side of vegetables which are very good value. We didn’t recognise many of the wines on their list, and asked for some help from the waiter and were very pleased with his recommendation. In fact it was so good we had another half bottle. Not normally a couple to order dessert – but what the hell! I ordered the petit fours and John had rhubarb and some nice coffees. Our bill came €149 euro. We will certainly make a return visit.
