Reviewed 03rd December 2009 ( visited 15th November 2009 )Odessa is fingerlicking good for their brunch. I had my favourite eggs benedicte and a mimosa and was absolutely delighted. The service though could be a bit slow sometimes, but the food and great cocktails make up for that :). I am looking forward to my next sunday brunch session.
Cinnabar @ Crowne Plaza Hotel Northwood restaurant
Santry Demesne, North Dublin, Santry, Dublin, Area Code: Dublin 9
Reviewed 30th May 2009 ( visited 02nd March 2009 )I like coming here for their aromatic coffee and lunch. I would not choose it as an "evening out" type of place. They have a nice variety of sandwiches and salads, and that is exactly what i prefer in the afternoon!!!! I do wish for their salads to be served with warm chicken and not cold, but you can't change the menu. Other than that i have not been disappointed with their food.
66/67 Great South Georges Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin
Wow!!! What can I say!!! Came here for my birthday celebration on saturday night!!! Service was efficient and very friendly, atmosphere was lively, and food was excellent, high class :) I ordered the lobster special and it was just finger licking good, it was served with fried claws, jumbo shrimp, thick cut chips, a delicious hollandaise sauce, mouthwatering Japanese side salad and 2 glasses of Prosecco!!! All for only euro 40 and is enough for 2 people. I also got 2 cocktails on the house cause i mentioned menupages when making the booking!!!! I highly recommend brasserie sixty 6 and will definitely be going back there to try their famous rotisserie meats!!!! Can't wait.
Independent Pizza Co
28 Drumcondra Rd Lower, Dublin 9, Drumcondra, Dublin
The pizza in here is really, really good. I tried a few other items on this menu like bruschettas and chicken wings and didn't really enjoy any of them. But I do get the pizza to go from here. It's a nice place to bring your kids on a saturday.
The Orchid Chinese Restaurant
12 New Street, Malahide, Malahide, Dublin
This is a very cosy chinese restaurant. They have great early bird offer and the portions are very descent. The food was quiet tasty but could use with a bit more flavour. My next chinese takeaway will be from here.
Il Sorriso Restaurant
New Street, North Co. Dublin, Malahide, Dublin
I dined at this nice little italian restaurant a few times over the last few moths. They have a great early bird menu for 16.95. The main reason I went for this because they had the mussels as a starter on their early bird menu :) yam yam. The service is always very prompt and smiley. I will be coming back.
Mexico to Rome
23 East Essex Street, Dublin 2, City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin
This restaurant is located in a very busy/touristic part of dublin (Temple Bar). My husband and I dined here on a saturday night. There is no parking in the area only at the quays. I liked that they sat us at the back of the restaurant - there was more atmosphere and looking out the quays. The service was a bit dry and delayed. We went for the set menu (fridays and saturdays after 7 pm) euros 23 for a 3 course meal. I got the prawns in a tomato sauce, beef burrito (beef was a tiny bit overcooked for my liking) and the chocolate cake. Overall the food was good, nothing amazing. I would probably come back to this place with a group of friends or a girls night out, not for a romantic dinner though.
The Brasserie @ Dublin Airport
Dublin Airport Baskin Lane, Swords, Swords, Dublin
What started off a cup of coffee turned into an early bird for the four of us. E22 for a 2 course not the cheapest but the food was quiet good. The service though was a bit slow even though there was barely anyone in the restaurant. I had the wings and salmon.....tasty.
Smyths Cock Tavern Swords
31 Main Street, Swords, Dublin
I was very disappointed with this tavern/pub!!!! We sat at a table (pub style) the table was quiet dirty, waited for the waitress for a good while, she took our order with no smile, I assumed she would wipe the table before bringing out the order.....not a chance..had to ask her. we had chicken wings and phylli steak sandwich to share. The food was not as good as I expected and was totally overpriced for a pub style 'restaurant'. I am NOT looking forward to going back there.
The Upper Deck duplicate
Harbour Road, Above the Waterside Pub, Howth, Dublin
Driving around Howth and decided to have us some mexican food...yam yam. El Paso have great outdoor seating as well which is great for summer time. The location of the restaurant is great. We had some fajitas and buffalo wings. i later asked for some spicy sauce the waitress without any questions brought me some. When we got the bill, I saw that they charged me for the spicy sauce E2.50. The waitress should have told me that they charge for it or offered me tobasco sauce or something like that. The food though was good.
4 St Aidans Park Road, Marino, Dublin
I've heard a lot about this place and decided to pay a visit with my husband and his dad for a nice Irish breakfast. I was actually surprised how busy the place was, the service was fast and staff were nice. The breakfast was very good yet it's hard to make irish breakfast not greasy. There are other choices on the menu and I will go for something else next time.

Good World Chinese Restaurant
18 South Great Georges Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin
I have tried the lunch at the good world and was not disappointed. We had a 2 course lunch for E11 and E13 (depending on what you order). My husband was happy with the ribs and beef and I had my soup and chicken. Nice location, quick service. Not my favourite chinese.
The Cedar Tree
11a St Andrews Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
My husband and my friends decided to try something middle eastern for a change and ended up at the cedar house. We shared some starters, had some lebanese wine and all of a sudden lights went down, the arabic music was loud and a bellydancer came out :) :) We did not expect that at all. I must say, that was the highlight of our evening. The food and service was great too :)
St Andrew Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
The four of us dined at this restaurant which is one of my old favourites for a delicious steak and beetroot salad :) Trocadero is not and average priced restaurant, but if you have the money to spend then this is the place to dine. I have tried almost everything on their menu throughout the times I've been coming here and have never been disappointed.The only discomfort that i have is their seating. The booths are small and awkward to sit in. Nevertheless, the delicious food makes up for that.
Airport Road, Cloghran, Dublin
This is my first experience of irish food in Ireland. I was brought to this pub/restaurant for carvery lunch the first day I came to Ireland 6 years ago :). To be honest, I wasn't very impressed, until I tried the turkey and cabbage. No matter what time of the year or the day you come here, the turkey will always be juicy and delicious. Since then if I am ever at Coachman's I have a small plate filled with just turkey and cabbage.
23 Watermill road, North Dublin, Dublin 5, Raheny, Dublin
Had dinner in this cozy restaurant with my husband and had a relaxing evening. We shared lasagne and pizza, which was nice and thin just how I like it. The staff were very pleasant and attentive. One of the waitresses was commenting on how nice of a couple we are :). Cheesy line, but nice to the ear. Will be coming back here soon.
Taste Food Company
South William Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
Visited this cafe for lunch with a friend. Menu selection: mainly soups and sandwiches. We got one of each. Nothing spectacular, simple and straight forward. I found it to be a bit too pricey for what we got. I won't be coming back here since there is a good few other places with better deals and better menu options.
34-35 South William Street, South William Street, Dublin
Myself and my husband were absolutely delighted we chose this Indian restaurant for the night. The service is outstanding here, the staff literally run around for you and your needs. we had a special of around 17.95 euros for a 2 course (which was massive), they gave us extra dishes on the house on top of that. the food was fingerlicking good!!!! The best thing about this restaurant, though, is an extremely chilled heineken on tap (which is the only tap beer they have). Now, i am not a beer drinker, but i could not resist and had 3 super cold and bubbly glasses. I can't wait to go back and satisfy my cravings :) :)
The Border Grill Restaurant @ Break for the Border
2 Johnsons Place, Lower Stephen Street, City Centre South, Dublin
There is nothing better than some delicious spicy chicken wings and mouthwatering ribs on a sunday afternoon. Break FTB is a sports bar/restaurant in the afternoon/evening and a nightclub at night. The portions were massive, the food was just perfect and the service was good (i like their uniforms) :) If you want to watch a match, play snooker and have messy tex mex food I definitely recommend this place.
Indie Spice Grill
Burgundy House, New Street, North Co. Dublin, Swords, Dublin
This is my most favourite Indian restaurant. I love the food, great service, atmosphere and great value. Euro 8.95 for a two course delicious, mouth watering and filling lunch. Now that's what I mean value for money. Can't go wrong with this restaurant. Recommend it anytime: lunch, early bird, sunday special or just a night out.
Peploes Wine Bistro
16 St Stephen's Green, Dublin , City Centre South, Dublin
Myself and my husband had a voucher for this restaurant; thank God,I wouldn't have chosen it myself 'cause it is expensive. The place is not very small but the do like to squeeze people in. I couldn't have an intimate conversation with my husband 'cause the couples to my left and right could hear me chew :) The food was nice, the service was excellent and the bread kept coming. Because it was our anniversary, they gave us a free dessert which was very nice to receive. I would recommend this restaurant if you have the money.
Old Airport Road, North Dublin, Santry, Dublin
I am a big fan of this restaurant. It's the only italian restaurant in the area. The food is really good and very reasonable, especially the fillet steak. We go there sometimes for lunch as well and are never disappointed. Definitely recommend it for lunch, a romantic dinner or any other celebration.
1 Shantalla Road Beaumont, Beaumont, Dublin
This Pub is locally located to where we live. Even so, we try to avoid going there for any meals or evening drinks. The food and drink is WAY overpriced, smaller food portions compared to other Irish bars and doesn't even taste that good. The only thing going for this pub is the atmosphere and location.
Shanard Restaurant @ the Regency Hotel
Swords Road, North Dublin, Drumcondra, Dublin
The restaurant was nice and spacious. Much better after the renovation. The four of us went over for euro 17.95 deal which included a four course meal and a quarter bottle of wine. The food was nice and simple, but came out a bit fast, which is not always the best thing. We were very pleased with the service, the waitress was very accommodating and friendly.
Toscana City Centre
3 Cork Hill, Dame Street (opposite Dublin Castle), Dublin City Centre, Dublin 2, Temple Bar, Dublin
we came to this restaurant for my birthday and had the special menu for euro 29.95 each for a three course meal and half a bottle of wine. My husband had a steak and i had a pasta. The food was absolutely delicious and a litre of wine was more than enough between the two of us :) It's a very cosy place, service was a bit slow, great for a romantic dinner. great for early birds and other specials.
O'Neills Bar & Restaurant
Suffolk Street, City Centre South, Dublin
Went there a week ago, had a carvery. I was a bit disappointed. I used to love their menu before: the delicious steak, tasty chicken wings...what happened. The carvery is huge....looking at all the steak, pies., lamb, fish, different types of potatoes......how could all that amount of cooked food be kept fresh? And it wasn't thaaat tasty anymore. :(
Drumcondra, Drumcondra, Dublin
We come here quiet often for the steak sandwich which is really, really tasty: it comes with the sauce, onions, peppers, garnish and a choice of potato for 11.99. The steak in the sandwich is very tender (never overcooked) and is very filling. Their carvery is yummy too, especially the garlic potatoes.
318 Clontarf Road, North Co. Dublin , Clontarf, Dublin
I heard a lot about kinara, so decided to give them a visit. I wasn't very satisfied with the food or the service. I love indian and pakistani food, but i found this food very buttery/greasy. I couldn't finish my meal, which i paid for and asked for it to be wrapped to go.....the waitress gave me a bit of an attitude as if to say 'this is not the type of place that has doggy bags'. She took the meal away anyway and put the contents of it in a transparent plastic bag and gave it to me... I don't think i will be paying that place another visit.
Cape Greko (Malahide)
Unit 1 First Floor, New Street, Malahide, Malahide, Dublin
This was the second time i came here....if i lived any closer - i definitely would be a regular. I absolutely love their chicken souvlaki and greek salad and everything else.... their food, service and atmosphere is ...... oh! so! good!
The Kingfisher Restaurant, Guesthouse & Apartments
166 Parnell Street, City Centre North, Dublin
Came here with my husband, had a steak that came with everything for a very decent price. It was quiet tasty and the service was prompt. I like this place also for the location, right next to my favourite bookstore "chapters". I will come back again for some lunch.
10 South William Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
Went there yesterday for an evening meal, chose three items from the menu and a carafe of wine for 12 euros. They brought it out all at once (tapas style). Absolutely delicious........yam yam yam. Everything we ordered was finger licking :) The duck was especially exquisite. Couldn't believe the price we paid for the quality of food. Looking forward to giving alfies another visit and bringing along a good few friends .

ZAO Thai Restaurant
96B Omni Park Shopping Centre, Swords road , North Dublin, Santry, Dublin
I like the location of this hotel!!! Shop and have a nice meal or have a romantic dinner and two steps to the cinema. The food is quiet nice, a bit pricy though. If your wallet is flat, then try out their lunch and early bird offers.....very reasonable. They deliver too, which i availed of a few times and it's not a take away place at all. I think more restaurants should do that!!!!
1 St Andrews Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
Loooooved this place!!! Food was really yummy, service was great!!!! We are big fans of tapas and it was our first time trying it in dublin........very impressed!!!!!! Can't wait to go there again.
Northwood Demense, North Dublin, Santry, Dublin
Went to mandalay many, many times. The food is always delicious, the service is quiet prompt!!! The only disadvantage is that you feel like they are trying to rush you!!! The food comes out too quick! Better to book for after 21:00, so that you can stay for the evening. Most of the time if you book before 21:00 hours, they need the table in an hour or so.
