The Brew Dock restaurant
1 Amiens Street, City Centre North, Dublin, Area Code:
Reviewed 29th March 2015 ( visited 13th February 2015 )Sister pub of Against The Grain. Awesome place. Went for lunch here but am a regular enough frequenter for beers and such. Hard to award anything but top marks for the place & staff.
Oliveto Restaurant & Bar
Oliveto At The Haddington, 9-12 Haddington Terrace, Co. Dublin, Dun Laoghaire, Dublin, Area Code:
Reviewed 29th March 2015 ( visited 14th March 2015 )Was here for an anniversary, all six diners were very satisfied with absolutely everything for all 3 courses. The veal risotto was a highlight as was the very generous portion of tiramisu as desert. Plenty of people came and left with pizza boxes, cementing its reputation as a burgeoning institution within the area for pizza.
Millers Pizza Kitchens
50 Upper Baggot Street, Dublin 4, City Centre South, Dublin
Absolutely unreal food from start to finish. Had calamari rings which were huge and plentiful, partner had chilli garlic prawns which were similarly delicious. We split the boar pizza for a main which was delicious. The only little fly in the ointment was that the egg on the pizza was hard boiled rather than soft boiled, but that is personal preference really. The Portuguese wine's they're introducing to their menu are also fantastic.
6 Ormond Quay Upper, Dublin 7 , City Centre North, Dublin
Went on a voucher. 2 glasses of wine and a platter to share. The wine was delicious but the platter was very scarce in food and the quality of some of the food was lacking. Nice place through and the decor was very interesting. Just a few tweaks here and there and a bit more generosity and the place would've got top marks.
Bobo's Gourmet Burgers (Wexford St)
22 Wexford Street (Beside Whelans), Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
Went on a voucher, one burger and a side. Went for the emancipator and onion rings and had to be rolled out of the place after it. Washed it down with a strawberry malt/shake which was similarly excellent.
Kostas Greek Restaurant
69 Dame Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
Lovely quiet place and very nice food. The chicken wings to start were a nice change of direction from the usual vinegar/buttery fried wings most places serve. They were chargrilled and tossed in a bit of lemon zest from the taste of it. Simple but beautiful. The sea bass tagine for mains was very nice, but I felt the tomato could've been cooked a bit more to take away the sharp edge from it. The desert was perhaps the nicest desert I've had in my 28 years on this planet. Its called Znoud El Sit. It's a filo pastry cigar with the most amazing cream/custard in the middle, flavoured with rose water. It was light and delicate and covered in some honey and nuts, a mindblowing end to a very very nice meal.
Selskar, Wexford, Wexford Town, Wexford
Lovely set menu. 4 courses for 30. Had a selection of starters to begin. 3 of the 4 starters were very nice but there was a mushroom tart that felt and tasted shop bought rather than fresh made. Had a herb crusted crab for mains and it was genuinely exquisite. Couldn't say enough good about it. Nearly licked the dish it came in clean. The cheeseboard to finish was a disappointment however, the cheeses felt like they came straight out of a fridge and the soft cheese took about 10 minutes to soften and the chutney tasted like it was slightly burned and as if there was too much balsamic in it. A couple of absolutely minor issues though, but overall an excellent dining experience and a must if you're a fan of wine. The place had a biblical amount of the stuff for sale.
The Martello (Bray)
Strand Road, Bray, Wicklow
Pub grub done very well. Had the scampi and chips and could hardly move after for the portion size of it. Quality of the scampi/prawns was very good. Very fresh tasting. Only issue was the atmosphere wasn't to my liking. Was quite noisy due to the proximity to many families including children. No fault of the restaurant, just not to my tastes while a bit hungover of a Sunday afternoon.
Platform Pizza Bar
7 Strand Road, Bray, Co.Wicklow, Bray, Wicklow
Top notch. Amazing wings, I had the spitfire, which was a step up from the standard buffalo type wings and while they were very spicy, there was a lovely depth of flavour to them unlike other hot wings which just delivered heat. The pizza was something special. It was the goat cheese, walnut and maple syrup pizza and it was seriously good. Was glad to have shared it as it wouldn't have been enough for one person. The raspberry ice tea was also very nice but a touch sweet. Go there. Now.
Michie Sushi Dun Laoghaire
64 Upper Georges St, Dun Laoghaire, Dublin
Nice and quiet place to have some of the best sushi I've had. Glad to have had vouchers though as it would've been pricy otherwise.

60 Dame Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
Quite nice and of similar value to nandos, but far far nicer. Better quality of meat all round. Whipped feta dip ftw.
88 Lower George’s Street, Dun Laoghaire, Dublin
Very very nice. Had the roast beef sandwich and chips and it was to die for. The relish/chutney on it was amazing, Very friendly staff too.
Against the Grain
11 Wexford St, City Centre South, Dublin
Astonishing everything. Their bay ale gravy is just the best thing ever and their choice of beers and the affability of staff is absolutely next to none. Good music too.
Beeftro - Dundrum
Pembroke District, Dundrum Town Centre , South Dublin, Dundrum, Dublin
Flawless from start to finish. Onion soup for starter, rib eye steak for mains. Not one single flaw to be had. Their special steak sauce/butter was like nothing else I've ever tasted and their crispy onion/bacon mash was like velvet. Very friendly staff and a beautiful restaurant to boot makes me want to go back sooner rather than later.
87 Camden St, Camden Street, Dublin
Partner and I went here thursday evening. Herself got the bratwurst and I got the venison sausage, both with a side of fries and onion stout gravy for sharing. The fries/frites were really delicious, and tasted as if they were cooked in beef drippings. Absolutely everything was devoured, but the gravy wasn't to my partners taste The music however, was very loud for about half five of an evening. This made conversation a bit difficult.

1900 Restaurant & Bar
59 Harcourt Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin
Went there on a voucher. Had scallops for starters and steak for main. Both were absolutely delicious and flawless. The selection of wine was also excellent and the service without fault. Would gladly go back. Only little negative really was that there were two hen parties coming and going during the visit and were a bit noisy.
