Located on the bank of the River Lee opposite Jury's Hotel. Café Paradiso is a sort walk out Washington Street in the direction of UCC. It is nicely decorated with views into the kitchen where you can see the happy looking staff cooking. On this day, I brought my girlfriend with me, a carnivore with little to no experience of vegetarian cuisine. She was completely taken aback by the quality of the food. The day was fine, the place was nearly full and a couple of recognisable faces in the crowd. We got white wine with our food which was absolutely gorgeous, I wish I could remember the name of it. The server was good and knowledgeable of the menu. This is definitely the best place I have eaten this year. Can't fault it.

A busy place on a Saturday, the staff are a little run off their feet but the food gets to you soon enough. If you think gastro pubs with a retro feel are the hight of culinary fashion and decor, and you don't mind driving half way to Tipperary, and you are desperately searching for an uneatable quantity of familiar food then you will be sorted here! The food is of good enough quality too, in fairness. Although, the vegetarian selection is completely without imagination. My veg main was nothing to write home about. The usual meat meal with the meat left out and a few beans put in. The deserts here are notably tasty.

The Sage Cafe
67-68 Catherine Street, Limerick, Limerick City, Limerick

Service was quick and efficient. The food was very quick getting to us. There is an older crowd here. Not many young people eating here. The portions could have been a little bigger but the food was very nice. I had a Chick Pea and Kidney Bean curry, and it was lovely. The toilet was out of order which was inconvenient. It was quite good but maybe a little expensive for what we got.

Royal Dorbar - Closed
Unit 3 Cornmarket Row, Limerick City, Limerick

The service here is grand but the food isn't that great but then again, it is cheap. No great atmosphere and you get distracted because there are a lot of people coming in for take away.

Copper & Spice Restaurant
Above The Mill Bar, Anncotty Village, Annacotty, Limerick

A good place to eat if you like Indian, nicely decorated and friendly staff. The same menu and food as its sister restaurant in the city, so lovely grub. Service was good and quick, I had the Matar Paneer which was probably the best I've had anywhere. A bit on the pricey side, but it was really tasty food so I think it was good value.

French's Cafe
12-13 Catherine Street, Limerick City, Limerick

This is a grand cheery place to visit for some lunch. specially if it is sunny you can sit out on the street and take in the sunshine. The service is generally good, the place can be very busy, so sometimes it takes some time to have your food delivered. I had a cheese toasty and a lemon and sugar pancake, both were nothing special but just what I wanted at the time. The value is good here, you can come in and get a tasty bit of lunch for a fiver.

Mogul Emperor
1 Henry Street, Limerick City, Limerick

I always enjoy getting food here, be it a take away or eat in. The staff are generally very friendly and chatty and the food is generally very nice. The atmosphere can good but often is very quite. The Mogul is probably the best place to get an Indian take away in the city, it has the right balance of cheapness and tastiness.

The Happy Pear
Church Road, Greystones, Greystones, Wicklow

This place is a quirky little gem at the top of the town in Greystones. I got takeaway. It was very nicely packaged with lovely timber cutlery. My eyes were a little bigger than my belly because I got a starter of soup and wasn't able to finish my main. Big portions. The restaurant is an interesting place, very wholesome healthy food and a little greengrocers inside it too. It was busy when I was here at lunch time and it was worth the wait because the food was lovely. You get a very different eating experience here and good quality food. Worth a visit.

IFI Cafe Bar
6 Eustace Street, Temple Bar, Temple Bar, Dublin

Service here is grand, the staff are nice and friendly and do well dealing with such a busy place. The food here is really good value, I always make a bee-line for it if I ever am eating in the Temple Bar region. The menu is largely unchanged in the last few years. Lots of nice finger foods and sides and stuff if you want to share. The burgers are always popular. I had the falafal on this day and it was gorgeous. A big portion, I was as full as a tic afterwards. Around eating times it can be very full and a little annoying with people pushing past you in the narrow walkways between tables. But this busyness is testament to the quality of the place. It is also a good place to go and have a sit down with coffee and cake. Good value, definitely.

Copper & Spice (Limerick City)
2 Cornmarket Row, Limerick, Limerick City, Limerick

Definitely the best Indian food in Limerick City. The food was quality, flavoursome and well made. The service is very good. It is the type of service that you don't notice is there, the server just happens to be there when you need them. Located next to the Milk Market, it is probably not Limerick City's most beautiful location, but the interior is well decorated. It doesn't look so cheesy and tacky like many other Indian restaurants. The starters and the sauces are fantastic. The onion badjis I had were the best ever. The best Indian but also the most expensive too but I think worth it.

Ciaran's Cafe - Closed
Drumroe Village, University of Limerick, Limerick, Limerick City, Limerick

This café is a real gem in the Campus of the University of Limerick. A little bit out of the way and completely unadvertised (probably to its detriment), one has to stumble across it in Drumroe Village. The café is bright and nicely furnished with plenty of outdoor seating under the mature chestnut trees that hang over the gurgling mill stream. The service is good and there is a nice selection of food on the menu. All vegetarian. By far and away the best food on the campus and in the whole Castletroy region to boot. Lunch will cost a tenner, the priciest place on campus, but you can ask for more and it comes with a free fruit juice. The value is great, you get real good quality healthy food for your money which is a welcome change from the generic slop available elsewhere on the campus.

Quay Co-Op Vegetarian Restaurant
24 Sullivans Quay, Cork City, Cork

Service was pretty normal for what you might expect, nothing special but in no way inconvenient. I ate by the large windows facing onto the south channel of the River Lee and I was able to gaze onto the Grand Parade as I ate. The food was quite good and of sizeable portions too. The dining area is nicely decorated and atmosphere was good. Relaxed and in a nice surround, with no feeling of an urgency to leave quickly. I think it is worth the tenner for a lunch.
