After a trawl around town looking for somewhere with an interesting menu, and decent prices, we finally came across this place. I was surprised to see plenty of variety on offer, and definitely very reasonable prices too. We had an Irish cheese and meatboard to start - this was superb. The quality of everything was really great, and it was well tasty too. A nice bottle of their Rioja went well with it. After that, the Ling looked great, and was very interesting, and we also had a "Rack of Pork" which was disappointingly small but admittedly very tasty. It just wasn't a rack, like the lamb type, more a chop. Dessert was trifle of the day which was beautifully presented and delicious; and a type of creme brulee thing which also went down well. Overall this is a great spot for something slightly different. The food is excellent and not expensive. Only downside for me is the portion size. Service was actually excellent - in fact it was faster than we needed! We had to send the waitress off a couple of times before ordering as we were so slow looking through the menu. Would return for sure!

The room is lovely, and there's loads of space, but when we arrived early we were the first customers! Thankfully it started filling up soon enough so the atmosphere was a bit better. Staff were very good - especially to the kids who were very impatient. We went for the early bird and food arrived very quickly. They were happy to make one dish less spicy for the kids and it was very tasty. It's very good value, especially with the glass of wine for a euro as well. They also have a good takeaway menu, handy for a night in. It seems to be doing a good trade, and we will be returning. It does exactly what is says on the tin. Good value Chinese in a nice spot.

Eddie Rockets - (Limerick)
115 O'Connell Street, Limerick City, Limerick City, Limerick

This is a good spot if you're on the road to Ennis or Galway. There's usually good 60s music on the box and they always welcome you at the door. It's great if you've got kids as the place is laid back - only complaint is that the high chairs are very low down (lower than the table). Food is good though, and if you have a voucher it's very good value. A good place for birthday parties!

Kokoro Sushi Bento
19 Lower Liffey Street, City Centre North, Dublin

Nice to see an express sushi to go joint. There's a great selection of fish and veggie ones, and you get a bowl of miso soup with your bento. To be honest it's not as tasty as other sushi I've had (but paid more for) but it's still of a very good standard. The portions are quite generous for the variety packs. Otherwise you can pick and choose what you want. Staff are very welcoming and friendly too. There's a small counter if you want to eat in. I haven't tried the hot bento but it looks good - I will be back...

Cafe Noir - Castletroy
Park Point, Castletroy, Castletroy, Limerick

How different things are at breakfast! I've had dinner and lunch here and was very impressed, but went for a pastry and all was not well. Had to order at the counter as nobody came to table; high chairs unavailable ("broken" but theres a shop literally next door that has them); no milk at the table and when it did appear it curdled in the coffee - eurgh. Pastries were nice though. I wouldn't come back here for brekkie unless the service was more attentive. Staff seemed to be focussed on getting ready for lunch. And the high chair absence I cannot believe...

Jam Cafe
Ballyseedy Home & Outdoor Living, Ballyseedy, Tralee, Kerry

The sister Jam cafe in Kenmare has a great reputation so I was happy to see this arrive in Tralee. It's a couple of miles outside town on the Castleisland/Killarney road. Actually this is an advantage as you don't have to endure the town centre traffic, and parking is free. The funny thing is you have to walk through a garden centre to get to the cafe! But it's a nice shop with some interesting things to see. The cafe is set in a corner of the shop which gets lots of sun and has nice big windows - though the view is just the road! Service is brisk enough but not too friendly, I found. The food is above average but one or two things were only ok - the seafood is very good but the salads are not fantastic. Cakes and buns are fabulous, and their scones are lovely. I think it's a little bit overpriced, especially now since things are getting cheaper elsewhere. All in all though it's a nice stop, and it's a particularly good spot to bring a family. Some days there's a farmer's market out the side which is nice, and you can always stroll around the garden centre after your bite to eat.
