A gem in the heart of rathmines; I ate here with a large group at the weekend and throughly enjoyed it. The service was excellent, the waiting staff were attentive but not overbearing. The wine was excellent, food well presented and perfectly cooked. The portion sizes were also just right. Not only this but the atmosphere was very inviting and fun. I will definitly return.

Aroma
The Craft Village, Donegal Town, Donegal

This was my second time coming here for lunch and I wasn't disappointed. The food in Aroma is beautiful; home made with fresh ingredients and the menu appears to change daily to reflect this. The portions are generous and the service was very good. The food is well priced for the quality of food on offer & the cakes are amazing. The tarte au citron was a particular favorite as was the lemon polenta cake. The setting is very peaceful and it's nice to walk around the artists studios and shops while you are there to help burn off those cakes!

Saba To Go
13 Rathgar Road, Rathmines, Dublin

It has been a while since I got take out from here & when I did I remembered why. I got a large curry & a starter to share between two. We were very disappointed to find that the large curry was mostly sauce with little else bar a few bits of chicken & some bamboo shoots. The sauce also tasted very...'powdery', I had noticed this before but had forgotten just how much of a processed, mass produced taste it gives the food. The starter was soggy and tasteless. We will not be returning especially as it appears to be overpriced for what you get! Pity..

Roast
10a Merrion Rd, Dublin 4, Ballsbridge, Dublin

I came here with a citydeal voucher, (like many others it seems!) and I wasn't too sure what to expect due to the mixed reviews. I though the menu had plenty of choices- we had the trout and the steak. The steak was a little chewy but the trout was perfect. Overall, the food was very nice and we had a lovely evening but perhaps the sides and desserts are overpriced at 4 and 6 euro respectively....needless to say, we stuck to the voucher!

Pablo Picante
131 Baggot Street, Dublin 2 , Baggot Street, Dublin

It was a pleasant surprise to find that Pablo's is actually a very clean, relatively healthy fast food option. It is refreshing to find a place in the city where you can get freshly made food with good quality ingrediants in a hurry. The staff here are shockingly polite and friendly without being over the top. The concept is simple,with a small menu and ingrediants which don't cost the earth so fair play to them for turning it into a thriving business. One warning though; when it says very very spicy, ya better believe it! I tried someone else's super spicy and my entire face was burning & tingling for about 30 minutes! Pity there isnt much room to sit but I guess the idea is to limit overheads in order to provide a cheaper eating option.

Seapoint Restaurant
4 The Crescent, Monkstown, Dublin, Monkstown, Dublin

I went here as part of a deal I bought online that allowed you a main & a glass of house wine for 12.50. From the beginning, the service was excellent. We were treated no different from those paying full price & could choose off the full menu. The waitress was very friendly withour being overbearing. The food was excellent,everything was cooked to perfection & the house wine was very good. I gave the value 3.5 points as sides are not included with the main and both the starters and desserts are quiet expensive. I feel charging 8euro for a dessert is excessive. Having said that, we had a lovely experience and would recommend it for an evening meal.

L'Gueuleton
No 1 Fade Street, Off Georges's Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

After wanting to go here for ages, I finally got my chance & it was worth the wait. The pate for start was amazing, rich and smooth, enough for two people at least. The cod, which as a white fish can be bland, was beautifully cooked & accompanied by plenty of veg. The bean dish was also very nice as was the sausage main. The portions were plentiful, the wine list extensive & the staff very attentive yet not overbearing. The restaurant had a great atmosphereas it was very busy but the staff never rushed us. I will definitly return.

Odessa
13 Dame Court, Dublin, City Centre South, Dublin

Went to Odessa for Sunday brunch to nurse myself back to health. It has a real New York brunch feel both in atmosphere, class and food. The brunch menu is resonably priced especially compared with some competitive brunch menus in the city. The food was of good quality & quantity, perfect for the morning after a big night without feeling too much guilt! The chorizo & pepper scramble with homefries was very tasty, as was the veggy breakfast.The staff were very friendly and polite, our order did get lost for a while but it was so busy & they were so appologetic that I couldnt fault them. I would definitly consider it for brunch again.

Cafe Seven
7 St. Andrew's Street, City Centre South, Dublin

I went with a friend for a casual lunch in December and was very disappointed. The chicken salad was a few bits of what tasted and looked like pre-packed chicken, on a bed of ice berg lettuce and....nothing else! No dressing, no tomatoes, no cucumber...no other salad item of any kind. It was awful. When I asked for dressing, the waitress looked at me like I was mad and brought me one of those little packs of vinegar you get in a chipper! My friend had the pasta dish which was pretty bland for the price. Overall, this place is overpriced, poor quality and poor service. I will avoid it like the plague.

The Merrion Inn Bar & Kitchen
188 Merrion Road, Ballsbridge, Dublin

This is a lovely, clean pub with a nice relaxed atmosphere. The food may be a little pricey for a pub but the portions are a good size and of good quality. The staff are very friendly and attentive. They have a good selection of wines available which you can enjoy with your meal which can be difficult to find in pubs. The dessert was lovely also!

The Steps Of Rome
1 Bird avenue, Clonskeagh, Clonskeagh, Dublin

perhaps I went on a bad day as I was told this place was very nice with great value for money. I found the staff unfriendly, and felt rushed throughout the service. They did not bring one of our orders. I felt the restaurant was not very clean and the food was really not up to standard. The pizza, for an italian, was a disappointment and the chicken dish was very small and not enjoyable at all. As for value for money, it certainly wasn't that night!

Mongolian Barbeque
7 Anglesea Street, Temple Bar, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

I went here on a quite tuesday evening with friends. The restaurant was very cold but staff were pleasant. Overall it's a good concept but I'm not sure its worth it, the selection of food wasn't great and its hard to eat all you can in stir fry food! The bowls were very small so it made it awkward returning for extra helpings. Perhaps its just not my thing, I think I prefere service and more choice. I can see how it may work for a large group but not for a small number.

Baan Thai (Ballsbridge)
16 Merrion Road, Dublin 4, Ballsbridge, Dublin

I'm shocked this place gets such good ratings. I went there for a work night last year and was unimpressed. Recently, I decided to try again but chose to get a take out from here. I had chicken and chasew nut stir fry, the chicken was awful. It was discoloured and tasted stale. A smile was definitly not included in the service and it was completely overpriced.
