First time eating here today after passing it many times! Always looks pretty full so luckily we missed the lunch rush.Quite impressed overall. My cajun chicken panini was really tasty,if a little hot! Wedges served with dips were also great. The bench style seating offers a relaxed atmosphere but might prove uncomfortable if it was busy.

Sophie's
33 Harcourt Street, Dublin, City Centre South, Dublin

It's worth visiting here for the setting and views alone. It's a little on the expensive side, but no more than expected. Food is quite good. Starters were very generous portions but mains are a little on the small side. I'd recommend ordering sides. Our waiter was lovely, very friendly and they organised a Birthday cake for my friend without any fuss.

Sawadee Thai
94 Terenure Road East, Dublin 6, Dublin 6w, Terenure, Dublin

I went here with the Groupon voucher some previous reviews have mentioned. Overall I would say I had some mixed feelings on the place. The food was quite good which I suppose is the main thing! But I found the staff and general service a little confused at times. I would return though.

Acorn Restaurant
16 Harbour Street, Tullamore, Offaly

I visited Tullamore last Friday and booked The Acorn based on the reviews I had seen online. I was with my boyfriend for his Birthday and I have to say the treatment we received was really excellent. The staff were so welcoming and friendly. No request was any hassle. I phoned to say I'd be about 10 minutes late and I was told that was no problem. They even arranged a Birthday dessert at the last minute free of charge. The food was also excellent, we both ate from the special menu; 2 courses for €20. Its not often you would get such a varied choice on a menu, especially one which runs every evening. Both starters of crab cakes and sesame meatballs were delicious. The steak was perfect too. With a great bottle of wine and lovely coffees, I think the bill was only €70. The staff went out of their way to accommodate us and I have to say it was one of the most enjoyable dining experiences we've had. I will definitely return here if I'm back in Tullamore again.

Dada Restaurant
45 South William Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

I'm sorry I hadn't been here sooner! I went recently as I heard about the byo option. The menu is short but all of the options sound delicious. The prawns for starters were really tasty and were a little different to the typical way they're usually served. I tried the lamb and chicken tagines, both were excellent. There is a lovely, warm atmosphere in Dada. It gives a great sense of Morocco without coming across as tacky or forced. Our waitress was really friendly and the whole experience was welcoming from start to finish.

Brother Hubbard
153 capel st, Dublin 1, City Centre North, Dublin

I can't fault this place at all. Have eaten here a couple of times and can't wait to go back. Amazing salads and bread. The coffee is also excellent and it is clear they are passionate about selling a quality product. The design has a really fresh, simple and contemporary feel. It is always busy, which creates a great atmosphere. Really impressed as it is an independent café, great to see good spots like this in Dublin.

Roasted Brown Coffee Shop
1st Floor, Filmbase, Curved Street |, Temple Bar, Temple Bar, Dublin

This coffee shop won't stay unknown for too long! The guys here really know their coffee and always seem willing to chat about it! They serve a small selection of cakes, sandwiches and salads. There isn't a huge choice, but what they do serve is really fresh, authentic produce. A huge salad bowl for €6.50 is great value(and delicious) compared to a lot of cafes. There is a chilled atmosphere too and you never feel pressured to leave. Check it out, before it becomes mobbed!

The Pepper Pot Cafe
Powerscourt Town House, 1st Floor, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

This place is a nice addition to Powerscourt. I'v visited twice since it opened and enjoyed each visit. There is a lovely 'feel' in the cafe, enhanced by the cute decor. Good selection of foodie sandwiches, the option with pear is particularly tasty. Everything about the menu seems fresh and homemade.

Foam Cafe
24 Strand Street Great, Italian Quarter, Dublin

I had spotted the crazy interior/exterior of this place and was dying to try it! Unfortunately I left disappointed. Judging by the slick website and good things I had heard about Foam, I expected a lot more. The food simply wasn't refined enough. The Feta cheese salad my friend selected consisted of a MASSIVE amount of lettuce doused with an enormous helping of cheese thrown on top. My omlette was better, but still average. My coffee wasn't great either. I hate leaving a bad review, and it did seem pretty busy the day I ate there. On the plus side, there is a nice atmoshere and the kitsch decoration will make you smile!

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

I pass this place all the time and figured the €5 lunch till was too good to be true. Turned out, I was wrong! Really great value and simple set up. You fill a bowl(some people's were overflowing!) with veg, choose your meat and mix with spices, sauces etc. Then hand it to the chefs who cook it in front of you! A large bowl of rice is also included. The food was tasty and there is a good range to choose from. Defo recommend it.

Bite - New Location Opening Soon!
29 South Frederick Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Was really looking forward to trying this place and have to say it met my expectations. There is a vibrant atmosphere and the food is really good quality. Tasty, good value and friendly service. The nicest fish I have had in Dublin recently!

Bits and Pizzas
15 Patrick Street, Dun Laoghaire, Dun Laoghaire, Dublin

It was my first time to visit Bits and Pizza and I did so with my Menupoints voucher. I was a bit apprehensive of service as I knew I wouldn't be spending much besides the voucher! However, the staff were wonderful. I think it was the manager who served us and she was really friendly and welcoming. We probably should have got pizza as I'd imagine thats their speciality! So I don't want to be too harsh judging by the meals we did get. The food we opted for(lasagne and chicken salad) was good but not excellent. Overall it is a nice place and good value. If I am out in Dun Laoghaire again, I'l definetely pop in!

La Cave
28 South Anne Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

I ate here with a group of friends and was suprised to see it relatively busy for a Wednesday night. Bijou would be the polite term to use when describing La Cave! However its cramped tables almost add to the charm of the place. Most of us opted for the 2 course deal for 16.95. Altough there wasn't a huge amount of choice on this menu, I suppose this is to be expected when ordering from a set menu. My goats cheese starter was really tasty, if a little on the small side. Small portions continued with our main courses. I can't fault the steak in red wine jus but the side of mash and veg were minuscule. We agreed that overall the food and wine were enjoyable and there is a pleasant, romantic atmosphere. However we did have some minor complaints regarding service. One dish needed to be sent back as it was barely lukewarm. When asked to reheat the main, the waiter wasn't at all apologetic. The restaurant also became quite cold as the night progresses. There was a definite draught or icy air con of some description! I would recommend a visit to try their HUGE selection of wines but unfortuantely I won't be in a hurry back to eat.

Yamamori Noodles
71-72 South Great Georges Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

I love this place. The food is excellent and there is always a busy, lively atmosphere. The complinentary green tea is also a lovely touch. I usually opt for the Bento box, I think its one of the best value dishes around the city. Ten euro for 4 small dishes, rice and miso soup! They are always accomadating in changing some of the options. Looking forward to going back!

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

I bought a deal voucher for Nyonya and decided to use it last Fri as a pre-theatre meal. As they have no website, I couldn't view the menu before purchasing the voucher. It offered a 3 course meal for 2 for 26euro which I thought was great value. However the dishes were quite cheap, so I didn't actually save that much! There isn't a huge range of starters, although we were happy with our choices; Chicken satay and spring rolls. For mains, we had a beef stir fry noodle dish. All the food seemed really fresh and the portion size of the main course was huge! Dessert was slightly dissapointing, there seems to be only one option. I'm not actually sure what it was as our waitress didn't explain. It contained ice cream, chocolate sauce and a green type of jelly. I am assuming it it some type of Malysian speciality. Overall food was tasty and staff were pleasant but struggled with some of our queries. Another thing to note is that it is really dark inside. The only light was provided through small t-lights on the tables.This may be the ambience they were aiming for but I found it too dark!

Reeves Restaurant
172 Templeogue Road, Dublin 6w, Templeogue, Dublin

I came here on a Sunday afternoon for a family meal and we all left impressed! The staff were really lovely, it seems to be the type of place where regulars return. I had curry spring rolls for starter which were very tasty. I was slightly disappointed with my choice of main(Duck) It was a large portion of duck served with a sausage stuffing. I felt it should have come with veg or some other side. However I had no complaints at all with the Bread and Butter pudding! Other dishes which were recommended were the Pate, Cajun Blacked Chicken and the stir fry. The kids menu is also brilliant value, with a good choice and large portions.

Itsa @ IMMA
Irish Museum of Modern Art, Royal Hospital, Kilmainham, Dublin

I came here for lunch with a friend after visiting the musuem. Compared to other Itsa branches, I found it quite overpriced. I assume this is due to the fact that its located within the IMMA grounds and is the nearest cafe. However I think 7.50 is too dear for a bagel which could have been better. I must add that my friend enjoyed her soup and sandwich. However, when she asked for the bread to be toasted, she was informed that they don't have toasting facilities! On the positive, the interior is stunning and there is a cosy and relaxed atmosphere. The staff were also pleasant and polite.

profile_review

The Goat Bar & Grill
Goatstown House, Goatstown, Goatstown, Dublin

I came here with a couple of friends for a lazy Saturday dinner and was not disappointed. My homemade burger was served on a fresh, soft bun accompanied with tasty chips and pepper sauce. There was also a choice of bacon/cheese or fried egg with the burger. I'm glad I opted for the pepper sauce as it was delicious. There was a also a small salad garnish, this could have been slightly bigger. However I was stuffed after eating! Friends had the lasagne and a chicken baguette and were equally impressed. We shared the special desert which was an extremely generous portion of Mars Bar Cheesecake. It too was delicious! Everyone was really happy with their choices and have vowed to return!

profile_review

Queen of Tarts
4 Cork Hill Dame Street, City Centre South, Dublin

I had great expectations for Queen of Tarts, but unfortunately it wasn't as charming as I had hoped. Judging by the previous comments though, its very popular, so maybe I just came on a bad day! I found the service and atmosphere merely average. The bill came to a total of over 11 euro which seemed a little steep for a coffee, tea and 1 slice of cake.

profile_review

The Pines Cafe Bar and Restaurant
196 Whitehall Road, South Dublin, Terenure, Dublin

Pleasantly suprised with the quality of food on offer in The Pines. They have an extensive luch and dinner menu. I had a tasty and very filling steak sandwich. Presentation and the flavour were both great. My companion had a chicken salad and was also impressed with her choice. However, I found the prices a little steep for what is essentially pub grub.

profile_review

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

Not top sure what to make of Frankie's to be honest! I ate here with a group of friends for a Christmas night out. Our main reason for dining here was due to the fact we left it very late to book, and it had one of the few remaining available tables in Dublin! The food wasn't that merorable. I had a lasagne which was nice but covered a little too heavily in some type of oil. The portion was a little on the small side also. Everyone in the group was happy enough with their meal but I think we expected better. However the ambience and restaurant setting is quite nice and welcoming. Average, but I won't be rushing back!

profile_review

Havana Tapas Bar
Georges Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin

Hadn't been to Havana in a while, and after eating there yesterday, I won't leave it as long in future! Can't recommend the laid back atmoshere enough. We got the lunch menu, which is served until 5. It has quite a good selection and affordable deals. I opted for paella which was really tasty. The sangria is also delicious and good value for a pitcher. I'l definitely be back soon!

profile_review

Zaytoon (Parliament Street)
14/15 Parliament Street, Temple Bar, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Great place to go before heading home on a night out! Better quality than your average late night take away. The food is both tasty and fresh .I'v had the Chicken-Shish-Kebab whenever I'v eaten here and would recommend it, the sauce is delicious. Strictly a no frills dining experience!

profile_review

TGI Friday (St Stephens Green )
St Stephens Green, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Would recommend TGI, if you're with a big group of people and are looking for a lively atmosphere. The 2 course menu for 15euro on offer at the moment is good value as most of the dishes are overpriced otherwise. There is no time restriction on the deal which is an added bonus. Also the 5euro cocktails are delicious.

profile_review

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

I have eaten here a couple of times and would describe it as average. It has a bustling atmosphere, probably created by the crammed tables and chairs! Service is especially fast. The pizzas are quite good, but I find the pasta and main dishes too expensive as they are served quite plain. I found the Penne Siciliana really tasty, but not very filling. At close to €12 for this vegetarian dish, its definitely overpriced!

profile_review

Salamanca
1 St Andrews Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

This was my first time eating here and I wasn't disappointed. The service was up to a really high standard and more formal compared with other Tapas restaurants. There was so much to choose from on the menu! The Paella and chicken in puff pastry were especially delicious. I didn't taste the goats cheese but friends agreed it was amazing. Tasty dishes and really good sangria. Only complaint is that portions could be slightly bigger.

profile_review

The Port House
64a South William Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

This interior of this place is full of charm. Rustic stone walls and scattered candles create a really cosy atmosphere. I ate here with 3 friends and we ordered 8 dishes between us to share. I thought the food was amazing! Really tasty and we left feeling stuffed! The spicy vegetable stew topped with cheese, black pudding with chick pea, chirizo and the potato dish were among our favourites. The wine was also great!

profile_review

Ukiyo
7-9 Exchequer Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Deciced to try out the Bento Box deal with a friend. Absolutely loved it! Amazing value at €10. The deal includes 4 tasty dishes which changes daily, Miso soup and rice. We were surprised that the 4 dishes were so big and we were stuffed after it! The staff were really accomodating and offered to change one of the four seafood options to a meat choice. We arrived at about 5 p.m and the atmosphere was pretty chilled. I'm sure its more hectic later in the evenings when Karaoke is on! Will definitely return:)

profile_review

The Church Cafe Bar & Restaurant
Junction of Mary St. & Jervis St., Dublin 1, City Centre North, Dublin

The lunch deal at The Church is great value and always tastes good. They don't scrimp on their portions either! It is sometimes hard to get a good table though as its always full. If you havn't been, I'd recommend you check it out..for the decor alone its worth a visit. Anytime I've been I've found the service to be excellent.

profile_review

Wagamama - Stephen's Green
St Stephen's Green Centre, South King St, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Really impressed the last few times I've eaten here. Enjoyed the lunch special..choice of selected juices and a dish for 10euro. Also tried the Pure Wagamama meal..3 dumplings, noodle dish and a juice for 15 euro is good value! Although the dish itself was slightly bland. I'd recommend Wagamama if you're after a quick bite to eat as service is very fast. Theres a good atmosphere if you're meeting friends for lunch/dinner etc but its not somewhere you'd sit for hours!

profile_review

New Millennium Chinese Restaurant
51 South King Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

I was not impressed with my last visit here. I came with a friend early evening time when the restaurant was quiet. My companian ordered a main dish and wine while I only wanted to order a hot drink. This was met with confusion from the staff and I was told that I must order food..after some time they relented and said they would make an exception. In the previous weeks myself and some friends had eaten here a handful of times and found it to be satisfactory. However after that incident, I will not be returning!

profile_review

Acapulco Restaurant
7 South Great Georges Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin

As I don't know of many Mexicans around, I was looking forward to trying Acapulco. The menu has a varied choice and eventually I opted for the spicy chicken burrito. I enjoyed the rice and corn which came with it as a side but felt it could have been a bigger portion. The burrito itself was only average. The decor is authentic and cosy and I think I would go back to try something else. However with slightly expensive prices and so many early bird offers around at the moment, I think they need to introduce one soon!

profile_review

Elephant & Castle
18/19 Temple Bar, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

When you mention Elephant and Castle, people say Chicken wings! They are tasty (and hugely portioned!) but I've opted for the pesto burger anytime I've been here. Staff are chilled and theres a nice vibe to the place.

profile_review

Saba
26-28 Clarendon Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

I have eaten here twice in the last month and found it really impressive. 15.95 for two courses and tea/coffee has to be one of the best offers around. Staff are welcoming and helpful and the interior is great. Try the duck rolls starter!

profile_review

Mao Restaurant (Chatham Row)
2-3 Chatham Row, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

I have nothing negative to say about Mao. I've eaten here frequently in the last month and have to say I highly recommend it. The staff are charming and extremely helpful. Getting a take out is never a problem and always ready quickly. The food is really good and reasonably priced. And they offer a wide range of Authentic teas.

profile_review

Gourmet Burger Kitchen (GBK South Anne Street)
5 South Anne Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Not usually into burgers but Gourmet Burger Kitchen has converted me! Ate here for the first time last month and have been back again and again. Prices seem expensive at first but the burgers are huge! I have found the staff helpful anytime I've been in and I like the informal relaxed atmosphere the restaurant offers. Try the Mexican burger:)

profile_review

Pizza Stop
6/10 Chatham House, Chatham Lane, Off Grafton Street, City Centre South, Dublin

Pizza Stop was recommended to me,otherwise I would never have known it existed! I ate here with a group of friends and everyone enjoyed it. Pizzas are good, desserts and starters average. If you want to escape the crowds,this is the place to go. Off the beaten track,it provides an intimate setting with low prices.

profile_review

Metro Cafe
43 South William Street, South William Street, Dublin

Have wanted to try this place for ages but it is always packed! After eating there I can see why. The menu is reasonably priced and the food is great. The staff are both helpful and friendly. There is a lively buzz about Metro, stemming in the outdoor seating area and carried right through the cafe. This busy atmosphere tempts you in,almost like you're missing out on something by not eating there!

Cafe Fresh
Top Floor Powerscourt Townhouse Centre, City Centre South, Dublin

This place has a lovely atmosphere and is tucked away within the stylish setting of the Powerscout Centre. Great selection of salads and interesting vegetarian dishes. Prices are reasonable considering the quality and pleasant service.

Cafe Leon
Wicklow Street, City Centre South, Dublin

Cafe Leon has a certain charm about it. Its cosy and relaxed ambiance entices you to stay a little longer and order that second coffee. On entering I felt as though I had stepped in a parisian hideaway. My chicken ciabatta was very tasty,slightly overpriced but the atmosphere makes up for the expense. Coffee was also really good. The selection of cakes looked delicious and I will enjoy going back to sample them.

profile_review

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

Just stopped by here to meet someone for a coffee,which I must say was great! I admit thinking,I may have felt intimidated surrounded by cultured,arty folk...but not at all! There is a chilled atmosphere and seems like the type of place you could spend an afternoon in.The menu looked really good so I will definitely be back to try the food!

TGI Friday (Dundrum)
Dundrum Town Centre, Dublin 14, Dundrum, Dublin

I'm suprised by the amount of bad reviews for this place! I assume most people know what they're getting when they come to a themed American glorified "burger joint"! Yes,the food is overpriced,but there is a lively atmosphere and I cannot fault the staff. They were attentive and polite throughout.I ate the chicken fajitas which were quite tasty and generously sized,but too expensive at €19.95. My partner had some type of chicken dish smoothered in cheese,which he also enjoyed. Fries were good,served crispy. If you are looking for overpriced,slightly above average food,this is where you will find it!

Mexico to Rome
23 East Essex Street, Dublin 2, City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin

I ate here for the first time yesterday. On first impression,I was greeted with a cute, bustling eaterie.I ordered from the lunch menu and found it a tough decision as there was a really good selection! Eventually I opted for the Mexican chicken burrioto. Costing good value at €9 including a glass of wine/soft drink.The burrito itself was delicious,my only complaint being the lack of side accompanient. I felt hungry again after a few hours and think the dish would benefit greatly if served with a side salad or fries.Other than that I liked the atmosphere and did'nt feel rushed by our waiter at any point.My companions seemed to agree and I hope to return again.

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

I ate here for the first time on Sunday as I was with a friend who recommended it. I must say I agree with all the positive praise she gave it. The decor is themed around a castle and adds an interesting quirk to the place. Reasonably priced dishes which are extremely tasty and homemade.

profile_review

The Courtyard Cafe
Pastoral Centre, Rossmore Road, South Dublin, Templeogue, Dublin

I would highly recommend The Courtyard. The food is extremely tasty and with cheap prices and fast service,it is one of the best spots to grab lunch. The lasagna and omelettes are great, as well as delicious desserts. I must stress that it is quite small and the clientele are usually locals. However if you're looking for fresh homemade food in a homely atmosphere, you will find it here.

profile_review

Luigi Malones Restaurant
5/6 Cecilia Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin

I visited this place for lunch with my menu pages voucher. I must say it exceeded my expectations! On arriving the striking eclectic decor and friendly staff command your attention. I found the chicken ciabatta with fries and a large glass of wine great value at about €12 euro. No complaints and I am sure I will be back!

The Submarine
Crumlin Cross, Crumlin, Dublin

Been here a couple of times. Usually a good choice on offer and quite large portions. Attentive staff and relaxed surrondings.

The Morgue
Main St, Templeogue Village, Templeogue, Dublin

I was really surprised at the quality of food available in The Morgue. It really stands out in comparison to other "pub grub". Unfortunately I haven't been here in a while, but I will definitely head back soon!

Ciao Bella Roma
24/25 Parliament Street, Dublin 2, City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin

Ate here for the first time yesterday. Quite busy too which is always a good sign.Really liked the welcoming and authentic Italian atmosphere! Found the starters slightly pricey though. I enjoyed the meal but didn't think the food was outstanding. Its probably worth heading back to try a pizza, as they looked fab!

profile_review

Frango's World Cuisine
Level 3, Dundrum Town Centre, Sandyford Road, South Dublin, Dundrum, Dublin

I think this place is great. It's not often that you find a contemporary, spacious food area within a shopping centre. Really nice place to sit. Service is usually fast and there is a large selection of options available. Reasonable value.

profile_review

La Gondola (Drogheda)
4 Wellington Quay, Drogheda, Drogheda, Louth

I went here a couple of years ago to visit Newgrange, but the cafe was the most memorable part of the day! The cafe itself is housed within a contemporary visitor centre. The cool reception is worth a look. All the food was extremely fresh. Typical homemade dishes within a homely relaxing ambiance. First class!

profile_review

Kestrel House
Walkinstown Cross, Walkinstown, Dublin

I have eaten here a couple of times for lunch. There is usually a large selection of hot food food on offer. Last time I was in, I chose a sandwich. I would describe it as average. However, I was impressed with the large helping of salad and crisps it came served with. I think a decent side serving really makes a difference, while some cafes think a side garnish of three or four crips is sufficient! Pleasant enough.

profile_review

Simons Place Coffee Shop
22 South Great Georges Street, City Centre South, Dublin

Love the cool vibe this place has. Walls are covered in posters and there's plenty of magazines informing people of interesting events;etc. Really relaxed and homely. Its the type of place you can sit on your own and not feel intimidated. Have only ever gotten coffee, but the food always looks pretty appetising!

profile_review

The Bald Barista
Avalon House, 55 Aungier Street, City Centre South, Dublin

Grabbed a cappuccino here yesterday, after hearing the rave reviews. It was lucky I wasn't eating in as the place was packed! There seems to be a bustling energy about this place that makes you want to be there! The trendy decor and quirky orange shopfront probably adds to this reason. Coffee was tasty and came with a cool decoration motif on top. Only complaint is value for money..I think 3euro is a little pricey for a regular sized take-out drink!

profile_review

The Village Bistro
17 Terenure Place, Dublin 6 , Terenure, Dublin

Really welcoming homely feel to this place, emphasised by the helpful staff. There are always plenty of people relaxing with a newspaper. Unfortunately I never have time to enjoy the breakfasts(which look amazing!)I usually grab a cappuccino, which always taste great. Plus all take-away coffees are 2euro.

profile_review

Gotham Cafe
8 South Anne Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Really nice place. Always very busy, which I suppose adds slightly to the hype. However I can't fault the food. I opted for the chicken ciabatta sandwich served with baby potatoes. Would have eaten a slightly bigger portion though! Quite noisy when I was there, so not ideal for a quiet chat. However I think this adds to Gotham's appeal. Interesting display of magazine covers on the wall.

Eddie Rockets (Tallaght)
The Square, Shopping Centre Tallaght, West Dublin, Tallaght, Dublin

Not one of the better Eddie Rocket's. However food is still great! My usual would be half and half combo, buffalo wings and coke. Great hangover cure!Burgers and nachos worth a try too. I don't know of many people who don't like Eddie's,so if you have'nt been, its definitely worth going.

Pizzas n Cream
Albert Walk, Bray, Wicklow

Don't expect anything too fancy. It is a casual pizzeria, yet it is still extremely tasty. Currently running a very reasonable lunch offer, everything is half price between 12-4 pm Mon-Thur. Pizza's are really good and I cannot stress how cheap! A special garlic bread, 2 pizza's, 2 coke's and 2 ice-cream cones for just under 20euro! Service is poor, but still worth a visit.

profile_review

Lemon (South William St)
66 South William St, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Found this place a little pricey. I had the chiken tikka option,tasty but not very filling. A little side garnish would not have gone a miss. Cappachino was o.k. Quite small seating space,but the decor and ambience has a cool vibe. I would return, but order a crepe containing a lot more fillings!

profile_review

O Sheas
19 Talbot Street, City Centre North, Dublin

I ate breakfast here with a small group for the first time a few weeks ago. I had read a review which called O'Shea's "The best breakfast in Dublin". However I was sorely disappointed. I ordered the full breakfast costing 10euro. The portion of scrambled eggs was extremely small, rashers were undercooked and the pudding was veering on the burnt side. Perhaps my expectations were too high as my friends seemed to approve. Maybe the chef was simply having a bad day, but I won't be returning to find out.

I have eaten here a few times. The menu is very similar to that of Little Caesars, however I think that Mario's is lacking in comparison. I found the garlic mushroom starter basically swamped in garlic sauce. The chicken main I had was nice but not very memorable. Although I can't fault the service/pleasant ambiance or prices, I don't think I'l be heading back.

Little Caesars of Rathfarnham
Rathfarnham Orchard, Butterfield Ave, South Dublin, Rathfarnham, Dublin

I love this place. We often dine here for family occassions. Really tasty dishes and great atmosphere. Staff are always helpful! Would highly recommend the deep fried mushrooms for starter. Pizzas are really good value and generously sized. The garlic mayonaise is delicious. They do a great main, a chicken dish in a red wine and tomato sauce. The only downfall is that the time between each course is very short. Hungry diners may view this as a bonus! Tables are also placed extreemly close together. Definitely not a place for privacy. A firm favourite in my household.

Brannigans Dundrum
Dundrum Town Centre Dundrum, Dundrum, Dublin

The place has a social, relaxed atmosphere .Nice place to go with friends or maybe a first date! The seating consists of a mixture of tables and large booths. The onion rings were a bit odd, but nice, very generous portion! The chicken sandwich/ciabatta look great, also the nachos. Wouldn't recommend the duck wrap at all. Service was good, very friendly. Free refills, which is always a bonus.
