Went here for lunch today, as it's one of my favourites. I have never had a bad meal here, and today's Ramen was a massive portion of deliciousness. The lunch menu is great value compared to the dinner menu, which is expensive enough. Great food with plenty of veggie options, you can't go wrong here.

We went to l'Ecrivain for a birthday lunch, as someone gave me a voucher for here. The atmosphere was fairly subdued and slightly stuffy, which I find is sometimes the case in very upmarket restaurants. Having said that, the staff were fairly friendly and laid back. We both had the lunch menu (one vegetarian) and the food was top notch. Small portions of course, but extremely filling. The wine list is really good too. It's nice to go for a special occasion, but it is expensive!

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

Went here for lunch and the food was very nice, if a little on the expensive side. Decent sized-sandwich and lovely soup. The hummus and potato starter was delicious, but a bit overpriced at ten euro. Nice atmosphere, and the staff were really friendly and helpful with out buggy. I'm sure we'll be back!

La Bodega Tapas y Vinos
93 Ranelagh Village, Dublin 6 , Ranelagh, Dublin

Went here recently for some Friday evening tapas and we were impressed with the place. The food was really nice and the portions were big, which isn't always the case in tapas restaurants! Friendly staff, and they let us stay on a bit longer even though it was busy and we were told we'd have to give up the table at 9. Great atmosphere too, would recommend.

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

The restaurant was completely empty, although we may have been in the time between early bird and normal dinner time. But it didn't matter, the food was fantastic, inexpensive and the staff were really friendly. Will definitely be returning!

Sandbar
193 Clontarf Road, North Dublin, Clontarf, Dublin

The food is very nice, especially the pizzas and they are massive. The staff can be hit and miss, they are often really slow and not the most attentive. Friendly enough though. As with most restaurants in Clontarf it's not the cheapest... not a bad spot for a bite, especially for the breakfast menu or a pizza (get the Bismarck!)

The Italian Corner
23/24 Wellington Quay, Dublin City Centre, Dublin 2, Temple Bar, Dublin

Went here with a Living Social voucher, thought we might try somewhere new as we love Italian. It was booked up the first two or three times I tried to make a reservations, so I thought it must be really nice if it's that popular. But the food was only ok, nothing special at all. The pizza was fairly bland and disappointing! I think it must be the good location that makes this place so busy, and there seemed to be a good few tourists here.

M&L Chinese Restaurant
13-14 Cathedral Street, Dublin 1, City Centre North, Dublin

We had heard that this place is the best Chinese restaurant in Dublin, so we were eager to try it for a while. We didn't have a booking and happened to be passing at about 9:30pm so we decided now was our chance. It was absolutely rammed full! There wasn't a free table so we stood there waiting for 15 minutes or so, which just shows how popular the place is. The whole time the wait staff looked fairly stressed. When we eventually got our food it was very nice, but to be honest neither of us felt it was a huge improvement on many of the other decent Chinese restaurants on Parnell Street and Capel Street. That's not a criticism as we both enjoyed our meals, it's just that people had strongly recommended it, and it didn't particularly stand out. It's not expensive and the food is enjoyable, so I would recommend it. Just make sure you book ahead!

It's nice to go for a special occasion, but it is expensive so the question is whether to go here for 1 meal or to have 3 meals somewhere else!

Pho Viet Vietnamese Restaurant
162 Parnell Street, Dublin 1, City Centre North, Dublin

Great little place, very busy so we were seated upstairs but it was just as lively as downstairs. Service was good, maybe slightly slow but the staff were friendly. The food was great, sometimes a smaller menu is a good thing, as they can do everything well. If you're not familiar with Vietnamese food, here is the perfect place to start. The decor is relatively plain, but the food is delicious at low cost, and cheap beers too!

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

Probably the best pizzas in Dublin. Prices have gone up in the past year or two, but it's still worth every penny. Lovely wines too, and an excellent choice of starters. I had bruschetta with tomatoes to start which was very tasty, and a pizza Capricciosa for my main. As I said, it's probably the best pizza in Dublin! The desserts are maybe not quite up to the standard of the rest of the menu, but who cares really, when the pizzas are this good. The staff are always very friendly, can be a bit lacksadaisical but you'd let them away with it, it's the Italian style!
