We followed a couple into the mysterious Odessa Club before being redirected to the restaurant next door. We were seated downstairs, ordered gin and tonics to begin and were served a decent English gin with lime, which impressed along with the cosy atmosphere. We had Cray, Crab & Shrimp Tian and Serrano Wrapped Asparagus to start. Both were refreshing starters, which set us up for our mains. I had Fillet of Beef with Foie Gras and she, the Whole Sea Bass with Teriyaki glaze. The steak was medium rare as requested and the foie gras and peppered spinach worked brilliantly. She was less sure of the Teriyaki glaze and citrus rice though had no doubts about the fish, which was well chosen and perfectly cooked by the chef. The house Bordeaux was affordable and the service was warm and discreet. We are wondering why it took us so long to find and will be back soon for seconds.

Ryan's & F.X. Buckley Steakhouse Parkgate Street
28 Parkgate Street, Dublin 8, City Centre South, Dublin

Usually have something to eat in the bar downstairs though this time as a birthday bash of 12 we booked into the restaurant and it is more pricey though well worth it and could not fault the food or service and the wine list was impressive for a restaurant of this size with some real treats so well worth asking for a recommendation from the wait staff who seem to know their stuff, we went with a red zinfandel and it went down well, almost too well with everybody. They char-grill the steak here and it tastes like it just came off a barbie only they can cook better than you, your neighbour or your sisters boyfriend, I'm a fan, there are not enough places like this.

The Tower Bar & Bistro
The Waterside House Hotel, North Co. Dublin , Donabate, Dublin

As a family function party of 15 we were very well catered for by the Waterside. The portions were generous and the service could not be faulted. Fantastic location on the beach when the sun comes out.

Kasturi Restaurant (Dublin)
Unit 3, Village Court, West Co. Dublin, Lucan, Dublin

This intimate restaurant will not compete with the larger restaurants in the city centre as a place to impress someone with but the food here is simply delicious. The sauces are superb; creamy, colourful and flavoursome and the meal portions are just right. When sharing you must order Chicken Tikka Masala - not listed on their menu - and try out one other dish with of course naan bread for the sauces. You will end up fighting over the CTM though you will not be disappointed with the decoy dish either. They do not deliver but are worth the trip as Indian takeaways who deliver locally do not match their food.
