Reviewed 22nd February 2013 ( visited 02nd February 2013 )

Went to this restaurant which we have frequented many times. This time we were celebrating a birthday. Food was good. Starters were a little bit small - I opted for the scallops and got 2 mini scallops. If the menu hadn't been just an "all night" early bird and i had ordered this starter I would have been reluctant to pay for it. Apart from that we really enjoyed the night and I am passing this remark as constructive criticism.

The Gables
McCabes Wines, The Gables, 1 Torquay Road, Dublin 18 , Foxrock, Dublin

Food excellent. Atmosphere excellent. The place was buzzing. Service was ok, obviously young people new to waiting at tables seemed a bit confused, although extremely nice. The early bird 3 course meal with half price wine would have been much better value than the menu pages voucher as soon one starter and 2 main courses with one bottle of the same wine (which was charged at the full price)came to the same amount. In other words there was no value in purchasing the voucher. Disappointing!

Guinea Pig
17 Railway Road, South Co. Dublin, Dalkey, Dublin

This Restaurant is just a pleasure to visit. The atmosphere is wonderful, staff extremely helpful and friendly and the food is delicious. A selection of house wines was offered to us and the wines were both excellent and good value.

Bella Cuba Restaurant
11 Ballsbridge Terrace, Ballsbridge, Dublin

First time at this Restaurant and was really looking forward to it. Unfortunately we were disappointed with the food which was very bland and all very same-ish. It was very bland when we were expecting exciting spicy food.

Cinnamon Garden Restaurant
Main Street, Ashbourne, Above Molly's Pub, Ashbourne, Meath

Because this restaurant has had great reviews on menupages, we decided to visit Ashbourne and have dinner in Cinnamon Garden. This is by far the best Indian restaurant we have ever been to either in Ireland or abroad. The restaurant itself is beautifully decorated, the ambience is perfect. The food is exquisite, presentation top notch and the service couldn't be better. I wish they had a restaurant in Dublin.

Rolys Bistro
7 Ballsbridge Terrace, Dublin, Ballsbridge, Dublin

Went to Roly's for dinner on Sunday night 20/01/2013. As always the food was delicious, service excellent - the only negative was we were seated at the back of the restaurant and the tables were much too close together - we had to whisper so our nearest neighbours couldn't hear what we were discussing. It was a pity as we have always loved Roly's. We will definitely go back but will request a table towards the front of the restaurant.

Rolys Bistro
7 Ballsbridge Terrace, Dublin, Ballsbridge, Dublin

Went for lunch and expected it to be quiet as it was only 2nd Januaryl However, the place was buzzing, restaurant full and atmosphere terrific. The food as always was absolutely gorgeous - great variety on the menu, and great selection of wines. Roly's never disappoints.

La Rouge Wine Bar and Grill
Number 1, St Gabriels Court, Cabinteely, Cabinteely, Dublin

Went to La Rouge on Friday last - our first visit to this restaurant. We opted for the early bird menu and when i asked for my starter to be changed somewhat due to medication, there was no problem. The food was delicious, atmosphere really nice and the staff could not be friendlier or more effecient. All in all it was a lovely experience

L'Ecrivain Restaurant
109a Lower Baggot Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

We visited this restaurant on 24th July last as a special treat. What a treat. Everything about this restaurant is 5 star. Food is delicious, presentation is amazing, staff are friendly, helpful and efficient. The atmosphere was perfect, gentle music playing in the background. Value was excellent as we had purchased a deal from menupages.

The Gables
McCabes Wines, The Gables, 1 Torquay Road, Dublin 18 , Foxrock, Dublin

I went with two friends for an early bird meal. Atmosphere is lovely and the service was excellent - friendly and attentive. Because we chose to eat early they currently offer an excellent selection of wines at half price. This was unbelievable value as the wine we would have chosen anywas was included. Tables were limited to 2 botles which was perfect for us. I would highly recommennd this for value. The food was delicious and we really enjoyed our meal.

Martines Restaurant & Wine Bar
21 Quay Street, Galway, Galway City, Galway

We visited Martine's Wine Bar on Monday 8th August. The restaurant is very basic with formica like tables and very casual. The food is more expensive than most Dublin restaurants of this type and the menu is very limited. However, the food was good and the service was good. With the location in a street full of restaurants, I would be unlikely to go back.

Gotham Cafe
8 South Anne Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

I visited Gotham Cafe on Saturday last for an early meal. The cafe was buzzing when we arrived but very noisy. Because the tables are so close together we felt like the people next to us could hear everything we said. We ordered drinks and had to ask a second time where our drinks were. However, the fool arrived in good time and my Sea Bass was absolutely delicious. I would go there again if I was in town and wanted a meal but would not go for a relaxing evening out. There is much better value out there - the set menu for €15 was extremely limited.

Alexis Bar And Grill
17 / 18 Patrick Street, Dun Laoghaire, Dublin

Went to Alexis last night for an early dinner - we were just passing and decided to give it a try. What a find. It is absolutely one of the best restaurants in Dublin. The Restaurant is beautifully laid out, the service is excellend and teh food is absolutely exceptional. To top it all the value was unbelievable. I will be telling all my friends about this wonderful place and cant wait to go back with friends.

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

If you want a treat this is the place for you. It has everything. The restaurant is gorgeous, the food is sublime, the service is second to none. Best steak you will ever have. From the moment you enter you are made to feel special. Its one of the best restaurants I have ever visited.

The Glasshouse Restaurant
Riverpoint Building, Bishop's Quay, Limerick City, Limerick

This Restaurant is one of the best I have visited for a long time. Its busy, buzzy, has a full bar downstairs, magnificent views and the food is just delicious. The service is excellent - I would recommend this to anyone who wants a great night out with great food.

Le Petit Cochon
Glasthule Road, Sandycove, Dublin

This was my fifth or sixth time to visit this Restaurant. I always loved the atmosphere, food & especially the friendly service. This time it was different. The friendly service had gone and the food was not as good as before. My main course arrived on a bed or soggy vegetables. I was disappointed as this used to be one of my favourite restaurants.

The Morehampton Brasserie (Previously the The Restaurant @ Donnybrook Fair)
89 Morehampton Road, Dublin 4, Donnybrook, Dublin

This was my first visit to Donnybrook Fair Resstaurant. The atmosphere was perfect. The food was excellent from start to finish. The service was friendly & professional. I would say that the waiter was one of the best I have ever encountered. His knowledge of the menu was incredible. He also advised us on what wine to choose and the wine was so good, we asked if it was available in the shop. He then went to the shop and got some for us. Best service we have come across. He is definitely 5 star. We will certainly be back and will be recommending this restaurant to our friends.

Milano (Dun Laoghaire)
1 Harbour Square, Crofton Road, South Co. Dublin, Dun Laoghaire, Dublin

Went to this restaurant yesterday. Its nice and bright. Took 3 kids with myself and one other adult. Food was good but a bit pricey - the kids pizzas were tiny and they were disappointed even though they were tasty. Also they wouldnt accept vouchers on Satudays.

Toscana (Dun Laoghaire)
5 Windsor Terrace, South Co. Dublin , Dun Laoghaire, Dublin

I visited Toscana on new years eve with aparty of 5 adults and 1 baby. The food as usual was delicious, the wine list is comprehensive and the staff are just the best - available at all times yet unintrusive. I would strongly recommend this restaurant - it is friendly, busy with a great atmosphere and there is a large carpark just across the road. I have been there many times and it is always one of my favourites. Sally Griffin
