Used a deal offer to eat here. For the deal, the value was excellent. the food was lovely, the service was really well balanced; helpful, friendly but not over-bearing. The only thing i could mark it down was that the atmosphere is a little hard to create downstairs - outside of the room. But that would be my only, very small, criticism.

DIG IN
19 Lower Camden Street, Dublin 2, Camden Street, Dublin

Went with a large group - the staff were excellent. Lots of different drinks orders, additional orders added with late arrivals - all handled with ease and a smile. Food was good for the price but nothing to write home about. Nice atmosphere and overall a very nice evening. Would recommend to people looking for a more casual evening bite.

Olivers Seafood Bar and Restaurant
Cleggan Clifden, Cleggan, Galway

I have been here many times over the years - twice this summer. Once in the restaurant and another time in the bar. Restaurant: the service from one girl in particular is excellent. her name is Joan if you can get her to serve you. The food is fabulous, decor needs A LOT of work but if you are not fussed (it doesnt bother me beacuse of the food), then you will be fine. Cost is a little pricey for one or two of the dishes (scallops) but again, the quality of the food gets you past this point. Bar: the open crab sandwich is gorgeous, the mackerel pate is divine, crab claws - portion small but excellent, sambos are great. The bar is a little grubby (I havent seen it been worked on in years) and they will have to do something very soon but if you look past all of that, it is a little gem that you might miss.

101 Talbot
Talbot Street, Dublin 1, City Centre North, Dublin

Came here for lunch with 3 others. Ordered two starters for myself - the hummus and the mussels. Both were fresh and delicious. I wouldnt normally order hummus in a restaurant but it was recommended to me and I am glad i followed instructions! Service was good if not a tiny bit inattentive given that it wasnt busy. Atmosphere can be lacking if the restaurant isnt busy. You can hear ever step that the servers take on the wooden floors! But overall, it is a lovely restaurant and serves great food.

The Vintage Kitchen
7 Poolbeg St, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

This place is a little gem. Its not roomy, its not fussy, its not for someone who wants grandeur or fuss. But it is perfect if you want really delicious food - open the top button of your trousers stuff, while you still try to stuff the last bite in. Great atmosphere, excellent value for (a) Dublin City Centre and (b) for the standard of food being served. Dont go here unless you are hungry. also, definitely dont go here if you dont like strangers in close proximity of your table. But it deserves all 5 stars.

KC Peaches Wine Cave Nassau St
28-29 Nassau St, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Got the Menupages deal - excellent value for money and depending on what you order, it is a lot of food to share between two people. The service was absolutely excellent. Knowledge on wine and recommendations on food were excellent. Don't worry when you first walk in - the cafe hides the downstairs "wine cave" which is perfect for dinner. The food was really delicious - Ribs were great, chorizo and crayfish fettucine was tasty and the duck plate was good. Only half a star lost because the OH didnt love the steak. But apart from that, I would encourage people to give this place a try. Two thumbs up

Boojum
Millennium Walkway, Dublin 1, City Centre North, Italian Quarter, Dublin

If you are looking for something quick, tasty, casual with a beer on the side then this place is perfect. Came here before heading to the cinema and would much prefer it than some of the other restaurants in the area. Food was so, so tasty. Staff friendly. Not your standard restaurant. Queue to order your food, have them make it in front of you and have it just the way you like and grab a abeer and sit down. Highly recommend for something casual.

The Pig's Ear
4 Nassau Street, Dublin, City Centre South, Dublin

Came here with a group of six. There were 2 picky eaters with us, but I have to say that the food was all delicious. Portions arent so big that you need to be rolled out of the place so if you are a three course eater, its perfect. However some werent and therefore still had a tiny bit of room for more at the end of the meal. Prices are matched well with the quality of the food. Bring out of towners or visitors from abroad and I think they will be impressed. Very tasty. Service was excellent. Very efficient, lovely and friendly - really good balance which is not something you get everywhere. Would definitely return. Although not sure if its the best place for couples. a 4 person table I think suits it best. Happy to see Irish food being used so well.

Cactus Jacks (Middle Abbey St)
Millennium Walkway, Middle Abbey Street, City Centre North, Italian Quarter, Dublin

Came here with a group of 10 for the early bird. Spoke to a lovely guy when booking the table. Came in and was greeted by a woman that had more than enough attitude to bear. Wasnt friendly and took away from the place. They need to address this. She was sour, a little rude and when bringing us to our table, she walked down the restaurant a few feet as if to check the table was ready (you could clearly see it was) and then hollered at us to follow her. Not nice. However, our main waiter was fabulous. He was patient, efficient & could help one person in the group with her options as she is coeliac. Other servers kept coming up to us and asking the same questions over and over. "Are you ready to order?" two minutes later "are you ready to order?" Needs to be more communication between staff. The one waiter and the food more than made up for these little things. Food was heart and delicious. Simple but good. Not one compaint from the table. Its not your traditional Mexican fare - more Tex-Mex - but good food & good atmosphere. Would I come again? yes - if i had to go to the cinema or had a busy day shopping and didn't fancy elsewhere.

Harrys Kitchen Restaurant
22, Dawson Street, Dublin

This place has a good atmosphere. Perfect for intimate dinners - even for a table of four. I went with a group before Christmas and to be fair we were a large table and took up the entire window section. Service was good but was very slow. Even for drinks. (this is taking into account that I was a group). Food was all very well cooked, flavoursome and the menu had something for everyone. However, two gentlemen with us ordered the prawn and scallp pie - it sounded delicious. It was but it was TINY. not enough for a main course. Overall, I would definitely visit again. Especially on a cold winters night. I enjoyed the food and atmosphere a lot.

Peploes Wine Bistro
16 St Stephen's Green, Dublin , City Centre South, Dublin

I visited this restaurant with a client and was not let down by its atmosphere. There is enough life in the place to allow you to carry out conversations happy in the knowledge that you are not being overheard by others. The service was professional and swift if a little impersonal - which is something a lot of pricier restaurants in Dublin suffer from. The food was good - I had the steak for my main course and it was enjoyable but not the tastiest steak I have ever eaten. Overall - this place has atmosphere in bucketloads. you could have a quiet intimate dinner and a group dinner and both times your experience would be enjoyable. Would the food be the best you have ever eaten - no. It would be good - great in some cases - but not the best. Would I return - probably. It has something that makes you want to return.

The Good Bits
Store Street, City Centre North, Dublin

Have gone here for lunch a couple of times. Its not a very obvious food place to go to but the lunch offers are great value. Food is good quality. Service is attentive and speedy. Great place if you want to go somewhere near the IFSC that's casual, tasty and you wont be spending your entire hour waiting for the food.

Thai Spice
3A Talbot Place, Dublin 1 , City Centre North, Dublin

Always busy at lunch. Book ahead of table is mroe than 2. If you arrive at the peak of lunch, dont expect to be served quickly. Food is so delicious that you can forgive them but be prepared to wait if it is busy. Great Thai at a reasonable price.

Broadway New York Eatery
Unit 6, Custom House Square IFSC, City Centre North, Dublin

I go here for lunch quite often - you will get a mix of college students and IFSC workers. Great lunch specials each day and they are good value for money. The service is fast and friendly. The chips are the skinniest in Dublin but somehow are still very delicious! Great place for lunch - not sure about dinner. They also do good pizza slice offers if you are in a rush - fresh from a stoneoven

Town Bar and Grill
21 Kildare Street, City Centre South, Dublin

This place is used quite frequently for client meetings in work but I actually came here with my other half. Very nicely decorated and menu looked delicious. There was just something missing... atmosphere was a little lacking, server was a little cold and whilst the food was tasy, it wasnt mind-blowing. Would go again because its the sort of place thats consistent and serves good quality food but as I said, you wont be shouting from the rooftops about anything. It's a little blah...

The Port House
64a South William Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Love this place. Great atmosphere and gorgeous food.Even if you are sitting in the middle of the floor, the ambience and lighting means you dont really notice that your table is stuck to someone else's! If you've always wanted to try tapas and want great quality - this is the place to go. Service is great - frantic but friendly.

The Orchid Restaurant
51B Church Street, Skerries, Skerries, Dublin

I regularly get a take away from here and its a step above most Chinese take away restaurants. I have also dined in here and whislt everything is done efficiently and seamlessly by the staff, they can be quite impatient if you are not ready for them when they arrive to take your order, to take away courses etc. But the food always saves this shortcoming. Delicious.

The Dining Room
35 Dawson Street, City Centre South, Dublin

This has one of the nicest dining halls that I have experienced in Dublin. The room is beautiful. However, it lacks a certain atmosphere that you would expect from a place so pretty. The service was good. Our servers were attentive and knowledgable. However, the options on the a la carte menu were limited. The prawns starter was great but our mains left us wanting. My partners Steak was a little on the small side and my fish was a little bland. Its like the kitchen is a little afraid of getting too adventurous or going full on with the flavour. If this is addressed in this restaurant, I think the overall experience would be vastly improved. Serving French cuisine at a standard that is only slightly above average in such a nice setting and for a fairly pricy sum, brings down the overall rating of this restaurant.

Bar Italia
26 Blooms Lane , Lower Ormond Quay, City Centre North, Italian Quarter, Dublin

Have eaten here many times at lunch and regulary get Take Out salads from the front of the restaurant. Food is excellent but at lunch expect to wait for courses to arrive so an hour lunch normally doesn't do it! Staff are all Italian speaking, friendly but if you dont get their full attention they will rush off again. Anyone I have brought to lunch here has come out satisfied. Fresh, fresh ingredients. Great Food.

Giovanni’s Pizzeria Restaurant
3-4 Townyard Lane, Malahide, Dublin

This is a restaurant to visit if you are not looking for a 5 Star place with 5 Star Prices but still want a good, tasty meal in a bustling atmosphere. The Staff are friendly but always busy. If you manage to have a seat near the kitchen and it is towards the end of the evening, you will get some banter from the kitchen. Clientele range from families, couples and small groups, so whilst you won't get an intimate environment, it is not so noisy that you cant hear yourself think. Menu is basic Italian done well and what more could you want?

Indie Spice Grill
Burgundy House, New Street, North Co. Dublin, Swords, Dublin

Loved this restaurant. Staff are so nice, attentive, and don't mind going through suggestions with those that are not sure what to go for. I have eaten in a number of Indian Restaurants and I would say that the ingredients in this restaurant are by far the freshest and most delicious. The smell from the kitchen alone will make you feel hungry (even if you go in with a full tummy). Location is the only thing that doesn't do this restaurant justice and from the outside be prepared to feel unimpressed. But give this place a chance and you wont regret it.

Stoop Your Head
Harbour Road, Skerries, Skerries, Dublin

Dont be put off by the exterior of this pub. It is a little gem inside. The menu hasn't changed that much in the last years, but there is no need to change something that works. I have been here a number of times. Staff will remember their regulars. It is always busy. But they have a sister pub that you can wait in if there is a queue ahead of you. They'll call the guys up there when your table is ready so you can relax before eating. Seafood is great, steak is always good, pate is tasty and vegetarian options are there - so there should be something there for everyone. It's worth the drive to Skerries for the food and the view out onto the harbour is nice on both sunny days and those cold winter evenings.
