hi, 6 of us ate here for a work do - it was such a great night. the staff were very accommodating to 1 person arriving late and didn't push the ordering process. The bread at the start, and the wine were both amazing. But the absolute surpirse was the rotisserie duck which was FAB. we all ordered different dishes, chickens, fish, pork and the duck, and it was impossible to fault. My only comment would be the main course portions vary considerably. The salmon is quite small where the chicken and the pork are massive. Its fab that you can swap a desert for a cocktail too - a real plus for those of us pretending to watch our waistlines! Hadn't been in a number of years, but am delighted that we went back - as it was to die for - and will be one of my new favs again!

Little Jerusalem - Swords
Unit 5, Castle Shopping Centre , Bridge St, Swords, Dublin

Ate here on a menu pages deal on a Friday evening. The staff were excellent, and the menu wide ranging, with good value. My only comment would be (if paying full price) the mezzes are a little small in comparison to my other regular Lebanese spots. Having said that, we got 3 courses each for 40 total, and nearly rolled out of there. Looking forward to popping down on my lunch for a falafel wrap! :)

MV Cill Airne Boat Bar & Restaurant
MV Cill Airne, North Wall Quay, Dublin 1, IFSC, Dublin

Stopped here for a sunny beer and a bite to eat before a concert at the O2. Ordered the veggie wrap and the chicken burger - food was excellent. The beers are slightly over priced, I suppose for the novelty of having it on a boat - but the location is totally superb. My only issue is the lack of flexibility of the staff. I asked for the chicken burger to be in a wrap rather than a bun, and they advised that there was no ordering off menu. Which was disappointing - but the end product was still delicious.

The Woollen Mills
42 Ormond Quay Lower, Dublin 1, City Centre North, Dublin

Ate here with my mother for dinner on a monday night, the place was buzzing, but when we arrived, was empty and we were seated between the door to the stores, and the door to the kitchen - both constantly in use. The menu is interesting, and as a fish and meat lover i had a lot of choice - but there was less on there that appealed to my mum, so she had the 'cornflake chicken', and I the mussels. To start we shared artichoke hummus. The artichoke hummus does not come with bread, but sad soggy chips, and is swimming in oil - not necessary! The Chicken was deemed 'tasty enough' but the bacon described on the menu was well hidden, and the apple sauce was not complimentary t o the dish at all. The mussels are cooked in ale, but to be honest did not taste any different from any white wine broth. They did include un-opened mussels in my dish, which I find unacceptable, and there was a strange after taste. The bread was excellent and the chips with the mussels also excellent. For 88€ - 1 starter, 2 mains, and 1 50cl + 2 glasses of pinot g I find the meal was over priced. There are excellent mussels all over the city for less than 20 or so €. I won't return for dinner I'm afraid.

Saison
21 Kildare Street, Dublin, City Centre South, Dublin

Ate here for a Family Big Birthday and it was the most fantastic experience. The staff were fabulous, taking coats and brollys, and accommodating our poor decision making skills when choosing wines for the meal. The food was faultless, we all enjoyed something different - pigeon, scallops and veal to start, beef, monkfish, vennison and duck for mains - and all opted for delicious deserts too + 1 cheese board. The cheese board was so generous, it could easily have done 2 people, and the Maitre'D and waitress' understanding of all the cheeses was fantastic. We were on a menu pages deal that proved to be excellent value, and I would definately consider a deal here again. All in all - we will be back, and soon in December. Thank you - new fancy favourite restaurant in Dublin.

Jamie's Italian
Pembroke District, Dundrum Shopping Centre, Dublin 14 , Dundrum, Dublin

My mum and I lunched here as a treat while out on a girly day shopping in Dundrum - it was a Tuesday lunchtime. I cannot fault the menu, the food sounds amazing, and what we received did not disappoint. My mum has constantly referred to the burger as the best in Ireland - and that includes her own - which are amazing. We are both passionate about food, and as well as food, service - as I strongly believe that the service industry is a tough one to be in, and I understood that Jamie's was supportive of careers in the industry, rather than part timers looking for holiday work. Unfortunately we were disappointed during the meal. We were sat in a quiet area and then quickly surrounded by very busy families, as it was the best area for them with buggies and away from other guests, this was a problem- but not necessarily the staff's fault. The service was problematic around getting the bill, and the coffees - we asked for both together as we were now there over an hour, and there was a delay between both arriving. The waiters were under enormous pressure, and they seem to take a long time to get credit card machines to tables - which is easily avoided with more machines - so that would be my recommendation. It was the same the last time I ate here as well (a dinner). I will not fault them on the follow up however. My mother mailed them, and they called back immediately, and were more than happy to offer a complimentary meal - something she was not expecting. Its such a pity that with great decor, a fab menu and passionate staff that there are some small process problems which can so negatively impact a diners experience. I'll be back for that burger though - no more salad for me :)

Yamamori Izakaya
12/13 South Great Georges Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

This has got to be my favourite restaurant in Dublin at the minute! You get great contemporary Japanese dishes, awesome beer and cocktails and staff that are truely focused on great customer service. To add to the experience, this visit they were running great value promotions for the World Cup, showing it on TV screens and yet it did not have the feel of watching it in a pub - meaning we could really enjoy our meal. At the end of the meal our receipt came in a lovely card, with a thoughtful message written by staff. We will be back again and again.

Il Folletto Restaurant
Quay Street, Galway City, Galway

Had an excellent meal here on Saturday night. The service was great, the atmosphere really nice, and the food to die for. We dined at 730 and were out of there after 10 so we weren't rushed at all. Value was good - meal for 6 + 3 bottles of wine for 270.

Pyg Restaurant
Powerscourt Townhouse Centre, South William Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin

Ate here on the menu pages voucher for dinner on friday night with three friends. It was the most disappointing voucher experience I've had to date, clearly as they had already got my money! We booked approximately 3 weeks ago, and were called back to be told that the restaurant was under rennovation, that we could eat in the bar. I questioned it at the time, and was assured that it would be the same experience, that there was a part of the bar they would transform to a restaurant for the extent of the rennovations. We were seated at the bar on the southwilliam street side of the pub, they put a low table right infront of the bar, and we were jostled all night be revellers going too and from the bar, the toilet the smoking area etc. It was very uncomfortable. I asked to be moved, first staff member didn't speak any english, second advised that it was not an option, and then the manager told me that it was the last table they had. The service was pretty poor - and very unlike a restaurant. You have to pay for your drinks with every round for example! The staff didn't know what was for desert, and infact gave us a completely wrong description 'um, its like a chocolatey thing, a cheese cake and a tart' - no, its not actually, its just three sponges of different flavours. The Dublin Bay Prawns were the highlight of the tapas, and the nachos and calamri were enjoyable. Other food was fine, but the atmosphere and staff attitude really let the place down. Safe to say I will not return.

Damascus Gate
10 Upper Camden Street, Dublin 2, Camden Street, Dublin

Ate here for a family birthday on the menupages vouchers. The vouchers are excellent value, and the food was fantastic. As it was a monday night it was really quiet (we were the only table), but he told us he expected it to pick up when it got a bit later. The waitress was a bit vague on the specials, we had to ask her to check stuff a few times (what the fish was) and how another dish was cooked, but other than that it was fantastic. Can't wait to return again.

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

Ate here with with Menu Pages Vouchers on a Saturday night. Was delighted that the vouchers were unrestricted in terms of the days that they could be used, and for €50 for a 6 course meal for 2 it was excellent value. The restaurant was busy, but the staff were attentive and friendly. Only downside was with the menu - there was no lamb shank when we were ordering, which was a bit disappointing as 3 of our party of 4 would have ordered it. They also ran out of apple pie, and had to swap a crumble in for one of the orders - which was fine, but the apple pie that came out looked divine. Overall I would definately return for a meal here, but I am not sure that I'd be comfortable paying the full price of €50 per person. The most flavoursome part was definately the amusé bouche... it was a sort of truffle soup that was exquisite!

Taste Food Company
South William Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Was dying to head here for dinner, as had stopped in many times for coffee and cake, and had brunch here once, and all was good - so i thought that the dinner would be a lovely experience. We were seated inside, and the place was not too busy, which was a bit surprising, as it was a Friday after work. Having seen how they coped with this amount of customers I feel they should be grateful that they weren't mobbed - it would have been chaotic. My main issues with the evening, all arose from the service. To summarise: - they got one order wrong and then we were left waiting, with my food going cold in the mean time - the toilets in the place are disgusting- there was tissue every where, there's a foul smell in the corridor on the way to them - the waiting staff need training on how to carry plates (there was some challenges with the table next to us), how to take an order (write it down - the order they got right the waiter had forgotten and had to return to check what it was) - we had to ask three waiters to bring us the bill, and then eventually zipped up our jackets, walked to the till and stood there while it was prepared. We had to ask for some sort of discount to compensate for the wrong order, which he was surprised over, he also questioned whether we had actually asked for the bill three times - well, what he actually said, was 'no, you didn't ask for it three times' TBH - I won't be returning, even just for coffee and cake.

Shanahan’s on the Green
119 St. Stephens Green, Dublin , City Centre South, Dublin

Dined here, A La Carte for a family celebratory meal - it was amazing. The staff are professionals at their best - they are attentive, but not over bearing, or ostentatious... they are friendly, but not over the top, and they work hard. The meal was amazing, the starters show the chefs creative flare, and they really set you up nicely for the mains - the steaks! Obviously, the pricing is VERY high, so can't say its the best 'value' in Dublin - but for special occasions of significance who wants value - you want a leisurely meal with delicious wine and a beautiful atmosphere - then this is the place for you.

Vagya Restaurant
68-70 Botanic Road, North Dublin, Glasnevin, Dublin

Ate here using a voucher that we had purchased online. Was absolutely amazed at the great value on offer and we left barely able to walk we were so full. I love Indian and Nepalese food, and have enjoyed the best of both in their homelands. This was excellent. The service was amazing, and the staff were very friendly. We were surprised by the outside - it doesn't look like a great restaurant, but it really really is. Just saw another deal there now for it - and WILL DEFINITELY BE PURCHASING!

The Art of Coffee
Altro Vetro Building, Pearse street, City Centre North, Dublin

Unfortunately they dont have a page up for the new branch on Harcourt Terrace - well lets just say its going to give Sol and the neighboring cafes a run for its money!! Very happy to get my sandwiches here every Friday as a treat!! They do great toasted ciabatas and foccacias, which means the bread is less doughy and more crispy, with lovely goats cheese, chicken, mozz, and other fresh ingredients. For its location the place offers great value - its about €6.90 for a takeaway coffee and a sandwich, which is MASSIVE.

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

Was at a meal here last night - made up a table of 5 girls. Have to say service was very good with wine and olives appearing very fast, but it took a while to get the bill when we were finished. The food was simple yet tasty, and was very satisfying for early bird value. Was surprised, but happy, that there was no couscous, but bread with the main courses - i am not a couscous lover, but the bread was fantastic! The wine was excellent value, and the mint tea was very pleasant at the end. Will happily return for both early bird and non early bird menus in the future. Second time at this restaurant and just as tasty.

F.X. BUCKLEY Steakhouse Pembroke Street
1A Lower Pembroke Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

The best value set lunch in Dublin. FXBs staff are great, accommodating, and friendly - they managed to fit us in on a Friday lunch with no booking, and no fuss. The food is great, and really good value at €20 for three courses - and the portions are very generous. I will return, and it will be our location of choice for work lunches as well!

Keshk Cafe Restaurant
71 Mespil Road, Dublin 4, Ballsbridge, Dublin

This has got to be one of the best new restaurants to open in Dublin. It is certainly the best restaurant serving Lebanese / middle eastern fare that I have enjoyed in the city recently! The staff are amazing, very friendly, the place is great value - paid €23 for a lunch for 2 and tea for 2, and the food is fantastically tasty! I can't recommend this enough. The only slight (VERY SLIGHT) downside is that I generally eat here at lunch time, and as a result they are very busy, so its hard to get the bill at the end - but they've no problem if you walk to the counter to pay straight up. Highly recommend the Kofta.

Kitchen
3 South Anne Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Had breakfast here a couple of weeks ago on a Saturday morning. The full Irish was excellent and the staff were really good. The serving was appropriate, and not over whelming like most Irish breakfast servings are. Would definately go back.

Greedy Goose
15 Townyard Lane, Malahide, Malahide, Dublin

Food was excellent - and staff were very helpful in describing dishes and helping us decide what to eat. Only negative element was the service was very fast - too fast for an enjoyable meal, and we were seated, in and out within an hour and ten minutes - including a bottle of wine, and four courses!! Also, would recommend adding a cheese board to the deserts so that those that prefer cheese after a meal have the option!! Have to say the presentation was the best i have ever seen - thank you very much!

Rustic Stone
South George's Street, Dublin, City Centre South, Dublin

Having read all the reviews i was very interested in trying the restaurant that has replaced the dire SoHo on Georges St. I was not to be disappointed. The food was excellent, ordered the Rib Eye, and the Tuna Steak, salad, and a portion of sweet potato, as well as some nibbles to start - hummus and baba ganoush. The only fault was the size of the tables, as the starter nibbles came and moments later the rest of the meal came. I would recommend this restaurant for anyone that does not mind seeing their meat cooking, I know of people that would not be interested in seeing this, but there is a lot of other choice on the menu. And the quality of the food is amazing. WILL DEFINATELY GO BACK!

Oscar Taylor Restaurant
Island View Hotel, Coast Road, North Co. Dublin, Malahide, Dublin

Visited here with my boyfriend and his family as it is one of their favourite restaurants. While I cannot fault the value, as the early bird is a GREAT deal, the service is somewhat disappointing. After the orders were taken it is mere minutes before the starters arrive, then seconds after they are removed the mains are there, and the same for the desert. So, there is little privacy, the staff always seem to be clearing, or setting plates and it is rather intrusive. With a view like the one they have they should allow people to linger over their meal, especially, when like the time i went, the restaurant was empty - and they could have easily sold us another glass of wine. Since then i returned to purchase a voucher and the place was very busy!! I do hope they address the service though!

Jaipur Restaurant (Malahide)
5 St James's Terrace, Dublin 15, Malahide, Dublin

Overall was extreemely impressed with this restaurant and it's modern take on Indian Cuisine. Had the mixed starter, and not wanting the seafood option they were very accommodation, and gave us a absolutely amazing lamb dish - fabulous. Then, for the mains, had the Thali, and it was very generous in terms of portions, also made achange to that at my request, and had some amazing dishes. Staff were very pleasent, attentative, and not to over bearing - the worst thing about the place was probably the guy sitting behind me!! Will definatley go back!

Buenos Aires Grill
Unit 2 Castle Way, Golden Lane, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Went here with my family, and the other halves for a birthday dinner. I was really looking forward to it, and have to say, that aside from some mistakes in the service - uneven pouring of wine, delays in getting condiments and water the restaurant was an excellent place to celebrate. The food was expensive, but no more so than steaks in other restaurants and the standard was excellent. Split one of the platters with my boyfriend and it was amazing, there was so much food - could easily have dodged the starter and still been stuffed. Would definately recommend it to a friend!!

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

Went here for a friends birthday on a recommendation. We were very impressed with the cosy setting. Seated in a 'cave' style table which was very intimate. We ordered twice from the menu when as the food was so good!! The only thing that was hard was to try and get the attention of the waiter when we wanted more food and wine! We also unfortunately broke a glass when were there and that was not cleaned up till after we left, so there was glass everywhere. The only bad complaint I have regards the toilets which are basically in the restaurant and are unisex. Food was excellent, service very friendly, a good price - dinner for 5 and 4 bottles of wine for 160€. Will definately go back with a big group of friends as it kicks the ass off the other tapas places in the area!!

Fallon and Byrne
11-17 Exchequer Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Went here for a work do and there was about 15 of us at the meal. The table booked for 6.30 had to be given back by 9, so staff were very prompt at taking orders and giving out meals, but never made us feel rushed. I personally was a little disppointed with the food, the starter was definately the highlight - crab and creme fraiche, then the main, steak and chips came with a lovely leaf salad, but the chips were very oily and tasted like vegetable fat. The steak was cooked nicely though, and everyones was how they ordered it also. The desert that I ordered was the pear and pistachio tart. This was most certainly not a tart, but a cake, and I was disappointed in it. It was bright green from the pistachios and way too much after the meal. But the coulis that went with it was nice. The lemon sorbet with the creme caramel was lovely though. What I did love was the atmosphere, and the extensive wine list which had something for everyone.

The Woolshed Baa & Grill
Parnell Street, The junction of Jervis street and Parnell street., City Centre North, Dublin

Am a regular here, but never realised that as a bar it was on menu pages!! Absolutely can't say enough about the food. Its fresh, well prepared and very tasty. It is excellent value for money, and the beer is very reasonably priced. Would highly recommend going here before the cinema on a date, then bailing on the cinema to have pitchers of beer and watch sports. Its good fun!! The staff are VERY friendly, although regularly have issues with changes to the orders, but think that's probably the Chef. The woolyclub is my favourite sandwich in the city, and if I don't order it I get food regret. Beer loyalty cards - well - you just can't go wrong can you!

Koh
6-7 Jervis Street, Millennium Walkway, Dublin 1, City Centre, Italian Quarter, Dublin

I was dying to try here as had read really promising reviews on MP but had not tried it. Normally for Asian fusion I stick with another restaurant but decided to venture to Koh for a change. An attractive reason for going was the 1/2 price wine that was advertised on the site of MP - however our waiter informed us curtly when I enquired if it was indeed an offer, that, no only the cocktails were discounted. So, that was a bit annoying. Had a nice bottle of Australian Hummerford Hill which was expensive, but one of the cheapest on the menu. The food was ok, it was hot enough for me in terms of chili - but may have been a bit hotter in terms of temperature. My friends both had Thai Green curry, and I had the twice cooked pork belly with green pepper corns. We all had deserts, and they were really good, but not home made. The restaurant was so dark inside, and when a larger table sat down near us it was hard to get the waiters attention. They also don't give you chopsticks, i had to ask for them (hello - it is an Asian restaurant they should be out with the knives and forks). Overall I found it pricey for what you got, but the main course presentation was lovely. I won't be returning.

Hugo's
6 Merrion Row, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Ate here recently with two of my collegues and had a very enjoyable meal. The Moules avec frites were delicious, in the most tasty cream sauce, and laced with garlic! The other plus of the restaurant was the wide selection of wines available by the glass... perfect for a table that wanted both red and white!

Peploes Wine Bistro
16 St Stephen's Green, Dublin , City Centre South, Dublin

Myself and my mum took my dad here for his birthday dinner, and it was the most enjoyable meal that either of us have eaten in a long long time. The service was excellent, the table was ready when we arrived, and the food was to die for. My meal in particular won massive praise (prawns and monkfish) because of the jus that was in the dish. This tasty sauce was so flavoursome, and really and truely complimented the meal. Having heard that Peploes was pricey I was rather impressed with the bill which was €260 for 3 courses for 3 people, a bottle of really good wine, and a glass or red wine, and three glasses of champagne. The only problem with the night.. deciding what not to eat!

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

Overall the restaurant was lovely, and the food and staff were equally lovely. There were some problems however. Time: The restaurant kept us waiting for the table, and as we were the later sitting at 930 we were very hungry, and not at all looking forward to standing in a packed bar waiting for the table to be cleared. The Steak: My mother ordered this, and what came out on her plate was a lot of brown. There was no interesting colourful garnish, and as she went for the pepper sauce over the bearnaise, it was even browner. It was over cooked, and very dry. Overall the food presentation was excellent, especially the prawns at the start!! Staff were nice and friendly

Town Bar and Grill
21 Kildare Street, City Centre South, Dublin

Went here last week as part of a work night out. We arrived at around 330 and had arranged to order off the set lunch menu, which was very accommodating of TBG. We were asked to order all our courses together, a little strange, considering you are not sure how full you will be after the mains. I ordered the Seafood Chowder to start, followed by the sea bass and then the apple and blackberry crumble. The chowder was very tasty, and unusually came on a tomato based sauce, rather than a cream one. So, wasn't too full, and was very happy. Then came the mains, we were all served, and then they realised that they had forgotten one. No apology, they simply turned to my colleague and said, 10 more minutes for yours (it was salmon). The steaks were massive for those that ordered them, and came with a generous portion of mustard mash. The sea bass was the most disappointing sea bass I have ever had. It was a minute portion, and as it was a very thin fillet it took about 5 seconds to eat. It was served with two peeled, al dente baby potatoes, two little pieces of broccoli and that was it. I was still famished afterwards, and would have eaten way more. The steaks ordered by my colleagues (4 ordered medium) came out in different states of medium, 2 were very well done, and 2 were rather rare. The deserts were ok, nothing special and again presentation of some differed greatly to the presentation of others of the same type. We ordered coffees, 1 Irish, 1 Calypso, and 1 French. Irish was ok, Calypso had NO alcohol in it, and the French was not very nice. All in all, I was dying to go here, and will probably go back once more, but it was a rather disappointing experience. Also, the staff were unpleasant and on several occasions gave us glaring looks, and were rude to the girl whose dinner they forgot!!

The Boxty House
20-21 Temple Bar, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Excellent all round really!! Was a bit sceptical about eating in a traditional Irish restaurant on a Saturday night in Temple Bar! But, it was the most enjoyable meal I've had in there. As the others said, booking is very important, and many people were turned away at the door... Food was excellent quality, and the portions are quite generous and reasonable enough considering it’s targeting the tourists! 100% recommended for an enjoyable meal, in great surroundings, and with fabulous staff!!

Deep
12 West Pier, North Co. Dublin, Howth, Dublin

I ate here last weekend for lunch and was thinking about it all week... the menu looked so fabulous I skipped breakfast on Saturday just to enjoy it. The food was fab, one of our party ordered soup, and the other 2 shared the seafood platter. Only quibble is put the salmon on two pieces of bread. Then for the mains, one king prawn dish, one fish and chips and a cod and mash. Food was of excellent quality and the staff were very friendly. Tables are nicely spaced apart as well. Only Complaints: The servings of wine by our waitress were much smaller than everyone else’s and it took 45 minutes for the starters to arrive.

Taco Taco

The best fast Mexican, at good prices, in the city!! The quesadilla is excellent, as are the nachos, and the people that work there are excellent. There is also the opportunity to buy different sauces and salsas so that you can make your own at home!! Love it!! Love it!! Love it!!

The Brazen Head
20 Lower Bridge Street, City Centre South, Dublin

Have been to the Brazen Head a few times with people that are visiting Ireland, and my family, for cheap and cheerful eats. The service was really friendly and they have a good selection of Irish beers on draught (including Kilkenny which is not available very easily). I would recommend the Irish stew, which is lovely...

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

A little expensive for the after beers kebab, but worth it!! The set for 2 is what I would recommend to people looking for a quick bite in the middle of the day, and at night, the chicken kebab, with tasty bits of actual chicken fillet is the best. The guys behind the counter are really friendly too... which makes the whole experience pretty enjoyable. The only downside is that half of Dublin sees this place as Dublin’s best Kebab Shop and the queues late at night are something else!!

Dandelion
St. Stephen's Green, St Stephens Green, Dublin

Used to eat here a bit with the girls and was raving about it to my new man... so we decided that we would try it one Thursday. A year ago on a Thursday the place would have been packed, now not so! The menu has been altered and is now rather plain, and has not done the restaurant any favours. The beers are over priced, probably because of the free entry into the night club, and the bar has inadequate seating for the busy weekends, especially Fridays with the after work crowd. Overall, pretty disappointing end from a rather good beginning.

Captain America's Cookhouse And Bar
44 Grafton Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

This is on a complete down hill slope! About 10 years ago I used to dine here with my parents, and it was rather enjoyable for a family day out. Now the food is over cooked, dry, and even the baked potatoes are awful. All the food tastes as if was cooked by unenthusiastic Home Economic students, the day before and reheated to land on my plate steaming and looking rather sorry for itself. The glasses are frequently covered in lipstick, and smeared, and the tea and coffee is nothing exciting. Why do I still occasionally eat here... because, before Dandelion opened on Stephen's Green there were few places to go in the area that offered food at relatively cheap prices, where one could go with all their shopping and feel comfortable. Thankfully, I haven't been in a while.

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

Went for dinner here and was very excited when I read the menu online... although it took a long time to find information about the restaurant upstairs, and not the downstairs vegetarian restaurant, or the book shop. Meal was fine, had cheese and tomato tart for starters and Mussels and chips for a main. On a Wednesday night the place was packed and booking is a must. The waiters were knowledgeable about the wines and recommended good wines for my meal. They then ruined everything when it came to pay.... We decided to pay by Laser and the waiter came over with the roaming Laser machine. He then passed it to my boyfriend and advised to enter his PIN, after which he handed the terminal back to the waiter. The waiter then duly embarrassed us by saying, 'Sorry, sir, this is where you enter the gratuity' and handed the terminal back, we entered, €10, but entered it as 10c, the waiter then brought this to our attention and corrected it himself, saying 'did you mean €10?'. This was truly appalling, and ended our evening badly. Bad word of mouth spreads fast....

Love it! Love it! Love it!! The waiters are great, not slimy at all... the service is excellent and the food is to die for. Liked the beer too, and they serve a good Lebanese wine.

FIRE Restaurant and Lounge
Mansion House, Dawson Street, Dublin 2, Dawson Street, Dublin

'Good Food, Good Value??' This is questionable. I found the tables quite large and rather awkward when you are talking to other people around you. The wine was fantastic and the waitress was excellent at coming over to top up. I recommended this place to several others and one party had an awful experience (I based my *'s on my own experience). They booked a table for 7, and had to pay a 140 Euro deposit on the table. They then were sent a list of terms and conditions, one of which being that if they arrived any later that 15 minutes after their reservation time their table would be given away. Given that this was in December, this was deemed pretty reasonable and the entire party made the effort to arrive 5 minutes before the booking (which was for 9pm). They arrived to find the restaurant had over booked and were left standing for 45 minutes with menus while their table emptied. They were standing in an over crowded bar and were not even offered a complimentary glass of wine to placate them. They drooled and dribbled over the menus, and carefully picked what they wanted... Eventually they were seated, given totally different menus and asked for their order, the other menu was not available. The starters arrived at 1130 pm. No apology was given and they eventually left the restaurant not full, and quite pissed at 1:10am!! To add insult to injury they then forgot to take the deposit off the account, accused the party of not having paid a deposit, and then very reluctantly investigated the situation, consulted the reservation book and then deducted the appropriate amount. I was pretty appalled to hear this story, as it was so different from my experience, but thought that I'd share it with Ireland's foodies.

Bar Italia
26 Blooms Lane , Lower Ormond Quay, City Centre North, Italian Quarter, Dublin

The best Italian by far in Dublin. I have eaten here only twice, but have probably recommended it a hundred times. I love the choices on the menu, and the fact that you can have the choice to eat 4 courses (you'd want to be starving) or to eat 2 or 3, and still be full when you are leaving. There is a good choice of vegetarian food on the menu, and a few good fish dishes, leaving one with more choice than the standard 'red pasta', lasagne, or tortellini choices of some of Dublin's other restaurants. The wine list is extensive, and the waiters are mainly mature men who understand the importance of knowing the menu, and being able to make recommendations.

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

*** New information*** Ate here last night and had the same dishes that I normally have, Avocado Maki to start with and Tempura Udon for my main course. It was pretty tasty and the house white was nice too. Then at 3am disaster struck, I woke to sever stomach pains and was severely ill (you know what I mean). And for all you sceptics out there that might think maybe I was on the lash, or had a few more beers, you're wrong, I had just that one glass of wine was home by 8. Original review below there are many things that make Yamamori one of the best Japanese places in town and the great atmosphere is certainly the best. They have a wide and varied menu, with a good choice of Japanese dishes (for both the shy and adventurous palette), their choice of beers is good as is the wine list. What I don’t appreciate is paying for Green Tea (although its the norm in Japanese restaurants here apparently). It’s a good place to go for those trying to widen their tastes in food
