The Port House restaurant
64a South William Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin, Area Code: Dublin 2
Reviewed 18th July 2009 ( visited 24th June 2009 )Had dinner here with my parents, their first time in Dublin. Excellent service, top marks! The seating was tight but made it work. So many mouth watering choices on the menu. Picked 6 tapas for 3 people and it was more than enough food. Favorites were the paella and the selection of cheeses. Excellent house wines complemented our selections. Atmosphere was terrific with candlaboras everywhere.
Red Onion restaurant
8-9 Parnell Street, Clonmel, Clonmel, Tipperary
Reviewed 03rd February 2008 ( visited 18th January 2008 )Now called Zum Zum. Excellent dishes, very tasty. Excellent service. Generally is not busy due to the fact that you have to go upstairs off the street.
Market Street, Clifden, Galway
Had high hopes when we reviewed the menu. They seated us in the upstairs area. Being a Sunday, the evening meal was being had by several families which had small children, which unfortunately took away from the atmosphere. Tried the clam chowder, but not a clam to be found! Another dissapointment. The main course of fish and beef was fine, but nothing special. For the price, the value was only on par. Service was both good and bad. Refilled water glasses and removed dishes from the table, but did not acquite themselves to ensuring we were satisfied with the meal. Perhaps they were overwhelmed by the half full restuarant! The real critique is that, given the chance, I would not return.

Had lunch. Guinness was good. Food was OK. Atmosphere and a picture with my lady, priceless!
Galileo Cafe Clonmel
4 Gladstone Street, Clonmel, Tipperary
I have eaten here many times. Pizza and calzones are very good. The other menu items are not that great. BYO wine bottle and they will uncork it for you. They don't have nice wine crystal however, which cheapens the ambiance. Very small space for tables and tight quarters. Better to order ahead and take out and find a more appealing location to feast on a good pizze pie.
The Tannery Restaurant
Quay Street, Dungarvan, Waterford
I have eaten here several times before and I am finding that the quality and consistency is top marks every time. Had the double beef (beef cheek) this time and it was cooked to perfection. The sauces are the specialty. Save room for dessert because it is worth the wait. Wine menu is good enough and you don't have to spend a lot to find a nice compliment. One of my favorite restuarants in Dungarven.
18/19 Lower O'Connell Street, Kinsale, Cork
After reading the recent reviews, I had a total different experience at Jola's. For starters the vodka list was extensive and I had the Rose Belinni which was excellent. The staff was very attentive, even though I was dining alone. In fact, Jola herself served the entree and stayed to chat for a few minutes. I found the atmosphere to be very cozy and warm, especially with the roaring fire. The most memorable part of the meal was all of the flavors in each dish. Taking a step away from tradiitonal Irish food and infusing flavors was very bold. I did notice that the traditional Irish side of veg and potatoes did accompany my meal, but hey when in Ireland, you must expect to eat as the Irish do. This is a definite stop on my next trip. Thanks Jola!
Cashel Co Tipperary, Cashel, Tipperary
Excellent experience across the board. The fish is fresh and cooked perfectly. The fowl is wild caught (careful to find the bullet). The desserts are so good, their best seller is the sampler. Fantastic wine list.
Befani's Mediterranean & Tapas Restaurant
6 Sarsfield Street, Clonmel, Tipperary
Think of this as a place you would take your wife or girlfriend. Fancy dishes with right sized portions. The lamb shank is the best. I am sure it is done well elsewhere in Tip. but for my money, I will eat it here.
The Park Hotel
Poppyfields, Clonmel, Clonmel, Tipperary
Very good menu. Nice wine selection. Starters and desserts are masterpieces. They make a great cappuccino too. The steak is actually cooked to American liking. Try a margharita from the bar, you will certainly want to have more than 1.

Tom Skinnys Pizza Parlour
3 Printers Centre Market Street, Clonmel, Tipperary
Agree with the pizza dough (gluten free please) The toppings are good though, spicy sausage is my favorite. Milk shakes could be thicker, but are still tasty.
Colevile Road, Clonmel, Tipperary
Lovely atmosphere. Can be a little drafty depending on where you take your lunch. Lunch menu is the better value. Dinner is good, but the seasoning and taste could stand to be revived.
