Citron @ Fitzwilliam Hotel
The Fitzwilliam Hotel, St Stephen's Green, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

hi, my 18year old daughter and her boyfriend went with a menupages voucher I purchasaed as a treat for them, I rang the hotel and made the booking and asked them to make a little fuss over them because of their youth, they arrived home raving about everything , the food was superb and the staff were very attentive and helped them with any little request they had, from my daughters ravings she would happily award 25 stars but alas the limit is 5 so they get a hugely deserved 5 stars

went here on wednesday last with a menupages voucher , it was the 2nd voucher I had purchased and believe me when i say that I am waiting for the time that the vouchers come again, fantastic value vouchers, the food is excellent and the service despite being packed on the 2 times i was here was brilliant, I got 2 vouchers to buy 35euro worth of food for 17.50 and we ended up having a great lunch for 2 for 17.50 each time , food was ordered from the al la carte menu and portions were normal, as I have used vouchers in other restaurants and received what i though were "voucher" portions , not here ,everything was excellent and i will definitely return with or without vouchers 5* + for me without a doubt

Surma
43 Lower Camden Street, Dublin 2, Camden Street, Dublin

bought a menupages voucher for 30.00 for any 2 starters plus mains + 2 glasses of wine and for me the portions were small, i certainly would not have been happy paying the normal price for what we got, we both ordered tandoori "JUMBO" prawns priced at 10euro each on the menu we got 2 prawns each that i would describe as large tiger prawns and having eaten "JUMBO" prawns in Saagar these were certainly not jumbo, we ordered again "JUMBO" prawns balti for mains and we received 3 , yes 3 so called jumbo prawns, now the mains dishes were priced at 18euro on the menu and I cannot believe that you would only get 3 prawns in a main course, I am convinced that because we had a voucher we were given smaller portions,maybe if people had the choice of telling about the voucher after the meal we would get the proper dea and maybe menup[ages could suggest this to restaurants,l the service guy was fine Topu I think was his name but I certainly will not return

Indian Ocean Dublin
15 Montague Street, City Centre South, Dublin

I have read the recent bad comments just now and can only assume that was because of vouchers but that is still no excuse however i hadn't read the reviews before i went for lunch today and had i read them i would have assumed I went to a different place, the lunch was very very tasty and at 9.95 for starters mains + coffee we certainly had no complaints except maybe the choice was a little limited but the food was beautifully prepared and i will go again, i knocked off 1 point for atmosphere because there was only one other person there but it is a nice clean place with tasty food

Salamanca Fusion
38 - 40 Parliament Street, City Centre South, Dublin

popped in here for lunch today and had a fine lunch for 10euro, calamari to start and not the rubbery kind, very tasty and from a great choice which included steak and chicken, i had the salamanca special burger and it was plentiful and very tasty along with some good chips, tea or coffee is also included which is great value for the price and quality of food, waitress couldn't have been more helpful and smiled all the time, I will return, also good atmosphere in the place

Bobo's Gourmet Burgers (Wexford St)
22 Wexford Street (Beside Whelans), Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

had a voucher for 2 mains and 2 sides and brought my daughter here last wednesday at lunchtime, burgers were brilliant but service a little slow, they actually forgot our sides, 3 small bottles of coke were 7.50 euro which i think is a rip off but the food was good, as another reviewer said , "stick to tap water "

Nyonya Malaysian Restaurant
76 Dame Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

went today on a grabone voucher deal for lunch and believe me it was disgraceful, i ordered ribs to start and received 3 pieces of bone about 1 inch long each, my friend ordered chicken wings and received 1 wing , i complained to the waiter about the portion and the size and he said " I know i spoke to the chef about it " , and that was it , the main courses arrived ,1 beef curry and 1 chicken curry and the portions arrived in what I can only describe as a small finger bowl, I am not exaggerating, I dont know if this was because I had a voucher but it was still unacceptable and had I been paying cash I would have refused, this was so bad I told the unfortunate waiter who was very apologetic that he should seek employment elsewhere if this was the norm as it will definitely close, the place was completely empty and now I know why, avoid at all costs

Bombay Pantry Rathmines
14 Rathgar Road, Rathmines, Dublin

ordered take away twice from the rathmines branch, 1st time I was left with no naan but they credited me with 3 nan the next time, 2nd time everything was great , on both occasions the food was fantastic but my order tends to be around the 50 euro mark so I will only be ordering every couple of months or special occasions customer care was brilliant when I rang.

Koh
6-7 Jervis Street, Millennium Walkway, Dublin 1, City Centre, Italian Quarter, Dublin

2 friends and i went here for lunch and we all chose from the quick bites menu, you get 3 choices for 12euro from about 8 options i think, between us we had ribs , beautifully tender with a sticky sauce, satay chicken which i was assured was beautifully cooked , large prawns(3) wrapped in pastry with sweet chlli sauce , vietnamese meat balls (spicy) which were described as coming in a red broth but which came in a sauce the same colour as the satay sauce and spicy prawn broth, all i can say is everything was cooked beautifully and very well presented, the portions may appear small but i can assure after 3 asssorted portions each, we were well satisfied and we said we would definitely return, i cannot really rate the atmosphere as there were not many there at that time, but the place is very comfortable and looks great and we enjoyed the lunch very much

Noble House
17 Dame Street, City Centre South, Dublin

returned as promised, we returned yesterday to this restaurant for lunch and i am glad to say, the service and especially the quality have remained as good, the beef with peppers and black bean sauce was brought on a sizzling platter as requested and was melt in the mouth gorgeous, i strongly urge a visit and dont be afraid to request things which may not be on the set menu as they are willing to accomodate most things, at least this is whiat i have found, ie: change the ordinary plate dish for a sizzling platter, the difference is amazing

Passion Palace
23-25 Sundrive Road, Kimmage, Dublin

4 of us went for the set luch and if there is a better value lunch with the same quality in dublin , i will be very surprised, we had a mixture of ribs and spring rolls for starters and 1 beef rendang, i beef curry, i chicken with black bean and 1 beef with black bean sauce for main courses, all were delicious and very good portions, and they even gave my daughter a beef curry which was not on the set menu, the cost per person was an incredible 9euro per person and we had great service from the waitress. i will definitely return

Buenos Aires Grill
Unit 2 Castle Way, Golden Lane, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

i and two friends have just had lunch there today and the food and quality were excellent and the value for money was exceptional for the quality. i had the shrimps with pasta and it tasted great , beautiful shrimps although i would have preferred a couple more (there were 5 fair sized ones) , my two friends had the argentinian sausages with mash and gravy and were well satisified with the portions and the taste, the total bill for 3 with an empenada starter + couple of glasses of the excellent house red + an espresso was 48euro and this really is value for money. i had the empenadas on a previous visit and they were a bit dry for me, but this time they looked more moist inside and i tasted one of them and it was certainly different to the previous ones i have had i can definitely recommend the place and the staff were excellent as always
