Knightsbrook Hotel
Dublin Road, Trim, Trim, Meath

I have enjoyed dinner in the restaurant in Knightsbrook a few times of late, most recently this evening! For a Sunday evening there was a buzz in the restaurant, which in past has been lacking, but for the good value I am not surprised. The three of us chose from the dinner menu at €48 for 4 courses plus tea/coffee, (There is a cheaper menu available from Sunday to Thursday for under €30). I had a lovely grilled aubergine and goat's cheese starter, which was tasty. We then had a sorbet, follwed by our main courses. I chose the sea bass and once again it impressed - the fish was cooked just right and the side of vegetables were delicious. My husband had the fillet steak, which he asked to be cooked medium, he felt it was cooked just past medium, but was happy enough overall. The dessert of saffron poached pear was a little disappointing - I had visions of a nice warm pear dripping in a warm chocolate sauce. My own fault for not correctly reading the menu - the pear was cold and covered in a hard chocolate glaze. However, the service was attentive but never intrusive. Christmas music was piped through the restaurant, which after a while got boring - a little mix this early in December would have been more enjoyable for those of us who have not quite attained that Christmas spirit!

Franzini's
Frenchs Lane, Trim, Meath

Franzini's failed to impress the night we were there. Had not been in over a year and felt it deserved another chance. I had the smoked salmon which was tasty enough. The chicken fajitas however were dry and tasteless, also luke warm! Overall bad value for money and Franzini's is not a place I would be rushign back to.
