Govindas has been my favourite place to go for lunch for years. I went to the one in Abbey Street yesterday evening and the main dish was cold. I should have got up and told them but I had waited for a while to get the food and was late for the cinema.

Caffe Italiano
7 Crow Street, Dublin 2, City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin

We had a lovely evening in Caffe Italiano today. The food was lovely. The portion sizes were generous. Most of all the music, service and atmosphere was excellent. In Italy the restaurant staff do not rush you out the door. It's lovely to have the same experience in Dublin. We will definitely return :-)

The Spencer hotel, Excise Walk, IFSC , IFSC, Dublin

We had lunch here today. The vegetable soup was awful. It's hard to get soup wrong. The "chunky chips" on the menu were skinny frozen MacDonalds type chips. The room was on the cold side.

The Porterhouse (North )
Cross Guns Bridge, Glasnevin, Dublin

Oh dear. This place has really gone down hill. It needs a good clean, more staff and better food. I dropped in here last Sunday afternoon with my wife and five year old daughter. The TV was on full blast and there was a game on. I didn't mind this too much as I was pretty hungry. The service was non existent. A man upstairs was running about like a headless chicken. We had to keep asking and eventually we gave up. I got the impression he was a manager the way he spoke to the waitress that rarely appeared. The food... The home made chips are in fact frozen chips and were cold. The burger was dry. The pizza was dry and didn't have enough topping. The kids menu was good value but who wants to bring a kid in here? There were a bunch of kids hammered drunk beside a reserved table for a first communion party. What a depressing sight. :-(

The Co op Bar Venue Restaurant
Main Street, Moycullen, Moycullen, Galway

This is a pub trying to be a restaurant in the evening. We were there at end of August with our 4 year old. The pub was cold and there was about six other customers in it. Now I know why. It's basically frozen food heated up and not even done properly. The pizza was like something bought in Aldi. The chips were cooked from frozen and were still frozen in the moddle. It's not as if the chef was run off his feet. If you're going to charge 3.95 for chips then cook real ones! The portions were small and the prices high. We could have gone to a really nice restaurant in Galway for the same price. In fact, we did the following night. Avoid!

We had a nice lunch here recently. The menu was a little bit complicated for some to follow but represented good value.

The Gingerman
40 Fenian Street, City Centre South, Dublin

The food in the gingerman is truly shocking. I don't know what the other reviewers are used to but it reminds me of what I used to eat at weekends in college when I had no money after being out on a Thursday night. The toasted sandwich came out hard and burnt. The ploughmans sandwich on two other occasions was on stale brown bread. The (frozen) chips they serve are tasteless. The club sandwich again is on stale bread with no butter on it. I've been there for lunch on four or five ocassions. Why may you ask? Because the location is half way between my work place and friends. If you're not fussy and would be happy eating a cardboard box for your lunch then this is for you. Else, avoid!
