Reviewed 25th January 2011 ( visited 23rd January 2011 )

I have been to Cafe Inna several times over the past few years. They have a good selection of paninis, salads, and pastries, and their coffee is very good. I usually go to Cafe Inna for Sunday brunch. On my recent visit, I had their all-day breakfast, which was lovely. They make poached eggs exactly the way I like them! Their food is very fresh and is made from scratch. The staff are so friendly and seem to know a lot of their clientele - a good sign in my books, as they must have a lot of repeat visits. They have a good selection of newspapers and magazines to browse while you're there. I find this place so relaxing and cosy. While it's a little out of my way to get there, it's worth it.

Canal Bank Cafe
146 Upper Leeson Street, Dublin 4, Ballsbridge, Dublin

I visited Canal Bank Cafe today for lunch. The place was fairly busy, mainly with the suit and tie workers from nearby offices. However, I had a choice of tables to choose from and selected one in the centre of things. The menu seems to be mainly made up of starters, salads, mains, and desserts; however, they did have a few sandwiches and omlettes for around the 13-15 euro mark, all of which came with fries. Why-oh-why is it so hard to order a sandwich in a pub or cafe without getting a side of fries with them? So, I ordered the crab starter, and my friend had the mezze plate. My crab starter was lovely - crab dressed with apple and fennel dressing, with a tarragon dressing, and toasted home made brown bread. This was very tasty and well presented, but for 10.50, I thought the portion was quite small. The service was excellent - we were left to ourselves, which is what you want when you're having a catch up with a friend. My only quibble is that by 3pm, I was starving.

Ananda
Dundrum Town Centre, Dublin 14, Dundrum, Dublin

This is my second time visiting Ananda's. I think the food here is really excellent. Some of the menu is traditional Indian food, whilst the rest is a type of Indian-fusion food. I had the scallops to start, which were three scallops on a long plate served with cauliflower - really delicious. I had the monkfish for my main course, which consisted of monkfish tail with coconut rice. This was also delicious. I have given the food 5* because it is so tasty. I do have one main problem: While the service is "good", it is definitely not great. At no point during our meal did anyone come to our table to see if our food was okay or if we needed more water or drinks. It was difficult to get someone's attention for more water. The dishes were very slow to come out. While I am definitely in favour of having time between courses, it was at the stage that we were about to ask had they forgotten about us. I do find that this is a problem with Ananda's, and it is exactly the same problem we experienced last time we visited. Overall, we had a pleasant experience. I would go back again, not for the service, but simply because the food is great.

Cortina’s Mexican Restaurant
The Pembroke District, Dundrum Town Centre, South Dublin, Dundrum, Dublin

We visited Cortina's recently on a whim, and were delighted by the overall experience. The food is perhaps the best Mexican food I've eaten in Dublin. The dishes are plentiful. If you order the nachos and dips to nibble on while you're waiting on your mains, they provide free refills, which is a nice touch. I'm not a big cocktail drinker but decided to order a Marguirita to go with the nachos - it was delicious! I had chicken fajitas for my mains, which was a very simple but tasty dish. The service was excellent, and I thought value for money was good. My one quibble is that the restaurant was lacking a bit of atmosphere for a Saturday night. However, I am putting this down to the very wintery conditions that particular weekend, which kept most people at home. A good experience all round.

Howards Way (Churchtown)
11 Braemor Road, South Dublin, Churchtown, Dublin

I have been to Howards Way several times, mainly for Sunday brunch. The atmosphere is always good, and the service is excellent. They get the dishes out to your promptly - perhaps a bit too promptly sometimes, as you don't often get the chance to digest between courses. But that is a minor point. On our most recent visit, I had the crab balls to start, which were crisp on the outside and moist on the inside. It came with a nice yoghurt dip on the side. This was followed by the fish special of the day: cod with scallops on a bed of champ and asparagus. This was delicious and I struggled to finish it. Both courses came as part of their early bird menu for 23 euro. For the quality of food and the excellent service, this is good value. The one thing I can say about Howards Way is that the food and service is consistent, and on a bitterly cold snowy evening, there is something very comforting about that.
