We were the only people in the restaurant at what I expected to be a much busier time. The food was tasty but very overpriced. What really, really annoyed me though was being conned into paying for water. We hadn't even sat down when we were asked if we wanted water. We stated that we did and were charged €6 for it. We assumed that we were getting tap water and it was never advised that there was a charge. No wonder the restaurant was empty. We certainly won't be back.

Boqueria Tapas Restaurant
3 Prussia St, Stoneybatter, Stoneybatter, Dublin

One of my pet peeves is over-priced water in restaurants and Boqueria ticks that box. We had the set menu and had a good range of dishes - none of the savoury were magnificent but no bad ones either. The coconut dessert (which I would never order) was absolutely fabulous. Wine was over-priced but it seems to be that way in many restaurants now. When booking the table there was no mention of having to leave by a certain time so we were very annoyed when asked to leave after 2 1/2 hours. The bill was slapped on the table and what we presumed were the next diners for our table stood behind watching us. Recommend - no. Return - no.

Ravellos Restaurant
Clonsilla Village, Dublin 15, Clonsilla, Dublin

I visit here pretty regularly as its local. However, it really isn't great. The food is good, if a little pricey. The atmosphere is non-existent though which is surprising as all the staff (bar 1 waitress who really seems to resent serving customers) are pleasant. They've started music there at weekends which is DEAFENING and adds nothing to atmosphere. Our kids love it - hence our returns

What a lovely restaurant in a beautiful location but unfortunately it was raining during our visit. 4 of us absolutely loved the food - the drunken noodles being the supreme hit of the night. However, service leaves a bit to be desired. We had about 4 different people serve us and whilst they were pleasant they certainly didn't go out of their way to ensure that we were happy and enjoying our night. Restaurant was very quiet but I'd imagine that on a sunny evening it would be hard to find a nicer spot. I'd go back with a group but not for a couple. Decor is lovely here - even in the ladies.

Genting Thai
INNISFALLEN SHOPPING MALL, MAIN STREET, Killarney, Kerry

Visited here on a night out with the girls. Loved it. The food was fantastic and covered a range of non-spicy to super spicy which suited our group. and the portions were enormous. Luckily, we had booked a table as the place was packed. The service was terrific - we stayed late as we had so much chatting to do but nobody came near us to hunt us although we were the last in the restaurant. Wish I lived in Kerry so I could visit here more often. Try it - I'm sure you'll love it.

Castello Bruno
Main Street, Castleknock Village, Dublin 15, Castleknock, Dublin

Have visited here on many, many occasions over the past 10 years and have watched it rapidly declining in the last 12 months. Our last visit, and it will be our last ever visit, was at the end of March for my son's birthday. The place was cold as usual. The staff were indifferent at best, surly at worst. The food portions were small (and we wouldn't have huge appetites). Pasta was ok, burger was dry, unappetising and TINY. Vastly overpriced for what it offers. Its sad to see a restaurant in demise so we won't be returning. We rang the following day to voice our complaint but surprise, surprise - the staff member I spoke to wasn't interested.
