We visited Wrights Findlaters in Howth and were pleasantly surprised given the mediocre reviews we read. We dined in the restaurant upstairs which is a lovely bright room with high ceilings and beautiful views of the harbour. The service was great and the food delicious. I had the mussels in a white wine sauce which comes with brown bread and was fabulous! My boyfriend had the chicken wings which are spicy but tasty. For mains we had the lobster with skinny fries special and traditional fish and chips. Both were delicious. I would have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant. The bar downstairs is also lovely for a drink afterwards!

I have eaten in Brasserie 15 a number of times. Although the dining room is a little tight for space with tables too close together for my liking, I have returned many times as the food is so delicious. The mussels are my favourite item on the menu and the nicest I've ever tasted. The pan fried salmon is also delicious and a really big portion size. Steak on the stone is fabulous if you're a steak lover and I love the chuncky chips. There's a huge selection on the menu to suit all tastes and I'm usually too full for dessert given the portion sizes. I always find that the service is good and overall value for money is great given the quality of the food. I would highly recommend this restaurant!

The Winding Stair Restaurant
40 Lower Ormond Quay, Dublin 1 , City Centre North, Dublin

This restaurant is in a fabulous setting overlooking the Ha'penny bridge, however, the food sadly is no longer what it used to be. The menu remains the same apart from the specials which change and the dishes, although tasty, lacked that extra something you expect from the winding stair. It's overpriced for what you get and I left feeling dissatisfied with my Winding Stair experience. I don't think I'll return and would no longer recommend it for food or value for money. The atmosphere is still great but the food sadly is not.

Musashi Noodles and Sushi Bar
15 Capel Street, Dublin 1 , City Centre North, Dublin

I love this little restaurant. The food is delicious. It's BYOB with a reasonable corkage charge. The sushi is extremely fresh and tasty. Portions are generous especially for mains such as the delicious Salmon teriyaki. There's always a good atmosphere and I will definitely be returning.

Brownes Deli and Cafe
18 Sandymount Green, Dublin 4, Sandymount, Dublin

This used to be a gorgeous little cafe with fantastic food and sadly this is not the case anymore. I visited for brunch. The range of pastries was minimal, the porridge was similar to a soup consistency which I had to send back. The second serving of porridge was slightly better. On the whole although the setting is lovely the food is very disappointing.

Brasserie Sixty6
66/67 Great South Georges Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin

I took the opportunity to use my Menupages points before Christmas and availed of the special offer Brasserie Sixty6 were offering. We were seated in the window seat by the door which is such a lovely place to enjoy dinner while window watching. Brasserie Sixty6 has a lovely ambiance and feels very welcoming and cosy. The staff from the moment we arrived couldn't have been more attentive. We were offered two free cocktails from the full cocktail menu to start which was a lovely surprise. I ordered from the full menu choosing prawn skewers to start and a maincourse of crabclaws and prawns with chorizo in a spicy casserole with sourdough and chunky chips on the side. My sister had the same starter with salmon for main course from the 33euro menu. The food was delicious, well presented and every mouthful was full of flavour. The most impressive part of the evening was the service we experienced. We were advised on the food, wine choices and offered tastings of two different wines before ordering. This really made the evening and with this combination of fabulous food and top notch service I would highly recommend Brasserie Sixty6.

The Exchequer
3-5 Exchequer Street, City Centre South, Dublin

I had a late lunch in the Exchequer with work colleagues. All of the food was very well presented and tasty. The steak sandwich was cooked to order on crusty break with chips. I had seafood chowder and an open smoked salmon sandwich. Also on the menu was beer battered ling, a variety of salads and fish pie. The service was excellent and there's lots of seating for groups. The food is very well presented and tastes great!

Thai Garden Restaurant
Church Avenue, Blanchardstown Village, Dublin 15, Blanchardstown, Dublin

I went to Thai Garden on a Saturday night for dinner. I find this restaurant quite crampt with tables very close to one another, however, the service and food is very good. We had the spring rolls and prawns for starters. The spring rolls are small and tasty but the sauce that accompanies is quite tasteless. I had Pad Thai with prawns for main which was really the nicest Pad Thai I've ever had. My finace had the sizzling beef and vegetable dish with a flaming brandy sauce which tasted really good. The service was good and I would return. The main courses are great but the starters are slightly below par with portion sizes a little small. I would return for the Pad Thai.

TGI Friday (Blanchardstown)
Blanchardstown Shopping Centre, Dublin 15, Blanchardstown, Dublin

TGI Fridays offers poor quality food for a high price. The burgers are tasteless and covered in cheap cheese and dresings and the fries are greasy. I did not enjoy my meal at all here and will never return.

Brownes Steakhouse
The Plaza, Blanchardstown Village, Dublin 15, Blanchardstown, Dublin

Brownes steakhouse is a great spot for a quick and tasty bite to eat. The restaurant is open plan and modern except for the toilet facilities which need updating. The service was prompt and very spacious so it's ideal for groups. All of the people in our group were happy with their food which included burgers, steak on a stone, chicken wings etc I had a darne of salmon in a cajun sauce which was delicious apart from the baked potato I ordered as a side which seemed more microwaved than baked. Overall this is a great restaurant for a casual lunch or dinner and I would definitely return.

Juno's Cafe
26 Parkgate Street, Parkgate Street, Dublin

I visited Juno's for breakfast. It's great for lunch but it's excellent for breakfast! The porridge with berries is amazing. The full Irish breakfast looked great too. There's plenty of choice for everyone with pancakes, fish cakes, salads and lots more. I would definitely recommend Junos for breakfast.

Gourmet Burger Kitchen (GBK Liffey Valley)
Unit 40B, Liffey Valley Shopping Centre, West Dublin, Liffey Valley, Dublin

I was very disappointed with this restaurant. The burgers are dry and over priced. I would definitely not return here.

Gourmet Food Parlour Swords
Unit 2 St Fintans, North Street, Swords, Swords, Dublin

This restaurant is a great place to eat in Swords. It's location is a bit out of the way, however, it's worth a trip for the food. The goats cheese ciabatta is particularly good. The service is always excellent and I would definitely recommend it. For a take away tasty lunch or a sit down meal - it's fantastic.

KC Blakes Brasserie
Quay Street, Galway City, Galway

I really enjoyed my experience at KC Blakes Brasserie. The restaurant is centrally located and very inviting with outdoor seating available. The view from the restaurant is lovely and the perfect place to eat well while enjoying the bustling Galway atmosphere. The prawn cocktail and fish cakes were excellent. I had pork belly with scallops for main course which was presented beautifully and tasted absolutely delicious. The fish and chips again looked and tasted amazing. I would definitely return to this restaurant on my next visit to Galway!

Druid Lane Restaurant
9 Quay Street, Galway City, Galway

This restaurant is centrally located. It has a cosy feel, however, it's probably best if you're not seated beside the door. The staff are welcoming and the food is delicious. The seafood was delicious. Don't leave without tasting their homemade brown bread which is the nicest I've ever tasted. I would definitely return again!
