The Park Restaurant @ The Midleton Park Hotel
Midleton, Midleton, Cork

We visited The Midleton Park on Sunday November 16th for an overnight stay on our way home from a vacation abroad. From our initial phone call to make a reservation we were sold (well done Ken). We found very friendly attentative staff, from Ken at reception to the waiting staff in the restaurant and the GM Patrick Shields. For dinner we had a wonderful warm duck salad, beautiful salad with a generous portion of lovely warm duck, followed by a sirloin steak cooked to perfection, we had asked for melted blue cheese on the steak and it came with a lovely thick layer of blue cheese melted over the steak. There is a short wine list with good quality wine from a number of countries. I think they have got this right, sometimes less is more. The General Manager Patrick Shields greeted guests in the restaurant and checked on how they were enjoying their meals; he was also interested in feedback as to where improvements could be made. The next morning we had breakfast in the restaurant; there was a table in the centre of the room with cereals, juices and breads. Along the wall there was a chilled area with breakfast fruits, yogurts, and cold plates, next there were plate warmers and a number of shavers with a large selection of cooked breakfast items such as bacon and sausage, etc. Poached, fried and boiled eggs were cooked to order. Again very pleasant friendly efficient staff to bring your tea / coffee and toast. This Hotel became part of the Talbot group some months ago, and as far as I am aware the name of the restaurant has changed name to The Maltings Restaurant. Excellent experience will definitely be back

Four Liars Bistro
The Butter Exchange, Shandon, Cork City, Cork

Accompanied by my 3 Spanish companions we visited this bistro on 3rd July. Three of us had sandwiches, mine was chicken and stuffing, it was delicious, the chicken was freshly cooked with abundance of salad, the ham and cheese sandwich was equally as good. The fourth member of the group had garlic mushrooms, good sized mushrooms, lovely and hot and a generous portion at that. Our waitress was a young Spanish lady and was able to converse with me in English and my guests in Spanish and switch from one language to the other with ease. We were a bit under time restraints would have loved to stay longer, but I will most definitely be back. Excellant

Viscounts Restaurant
10 Northland Row, Dungannon, Tyrone

Visited Viscounts on Saturday night, it was late when we arrived, and it was fully booked, we had no booking, but when we pleaded our case and were willing to wait, they accommodated us. We were directed to the bar where we had a drink quarter bottle wine L3.60 (€4.44) and pint of ale L3 (€3.70) , we were offered menus, very friendly efficient staff. Our order was taken promptly and our wait wasn’t long. A waiter came put our drinks on a tray and showed us to our table. To start I had Strangford Lough mussels @L6.25 (€7.70) a generous portion, medium sized and very tasty the sauce was excellent, the distinct taste of white wine, a little chilli, and herbs. Yum. My partner had Viscounts sticky baby back ribs @ L5.95 (€7.34) again delicious and the meat latterly fell from the bone. For mains I had pan fried fillets of Monkfish with parma ham @ L16.95 (€20.90) delicious well seasoned served with dauphinoise potato with gruyere cheese, Dijon mustard sauce. My partner had Duo of Kettyle Irish lamb, shoulder and cutlet, which came with crused potatoes and peas, mint jus. L16.95 (20.90) again delicious. To follow we shared a cheese board L4.95 (€6.10). To accompany our meal we had a bottle of French Pinot Noir L18 (22.20) A most excellent meal couldn’t fault anything, lovely atmosphere, friendly staff, excellent service, fantastic food. This restaurant is a gem of a find, it was so busy, I observed a hen party group and at least two birthday party groups, but this didn’t phase the staff one little bit. This is a must when we go to the north again.

The Old Bake House (Clare)
Main Street, Milltown Malbay, Clare

The Old Bake House in Milltown Malbay, is a treasure of a find. I visited there on Friday last for lunch, lovely atmosphere, spotlessly clean, the dinner menu on the board seems delightful, also a good selection of wines on the board, and wine by the glass. For starters I had Pork Spare Ribs in spicy Barbeque Sauce, a generous portion, so tender absolutely to die for. For mains I had Fresh Fillet of cod with Chips and salad, and dessert of Parfritter rolls, Yum followed by coffee. I couldn’t fault this restaurant; the waiter was very attentative and extremely pleasant. So well done, I will be back again on my next visit to Clare

Killarney Golf and Fishing Club
Mahony's Point, Killarney, Kerry

Visited this Golf Club for lunch on Saturday, what a lovely setting, the bar overlooks the lakes and course. We had Irish Smoked Salmon, Salad, Onion, Capers & Homemade Soda Bread @€10 and two large pots of tea, very at tentative waiter, after we finished the salmon plate the empty plates were removed to let us relax and enjoy our tea. Most enjoyable experience. Well worth a visit. Our total bill was €26 good value.

The Tannery Restaurant
Quay Street, Dungarvan, Waterford

This restaurant has been on our list of places to visit for quite some time, so we eventually made it on Sunday last August 22nd at approx 6pm. We were met by a very pleasant front of house receptionist who showed us to our table and gave us some menus, as we were driving we did not partake of any wine. I opted for the Easy Evening Menu @ €28.50, my partner opted for the Aged rib eye steak from the a La Carte menu also @ €28.50. Our waiter brought some bread and water and took our order. I started with The Tannery tasting plate which comprised of duck pate, chicken liver pate, potted rabbit, and a cold soup. We shared the pate’s, it was ok but not spectacular. Then to the mains I had Pan fried trout, which came with a bed of peas and French beans, with a whirl of creamed potatoes. My partners Aged rib eye steak looked rather mean and small with two vegetable croquettes, four onion rings, and a bowl of creamed potatoes, we enquired from our waiter as to the contents of the bowl and were informed it was potatoes creamed with butter and cream and drizzled with oil. This meal left a lot to be desired, it was warm at best, not even hot. I ordered Chocolate truffle cake with cherries for desert, not bad but very heavy. I requested the bill which came to €57.00. During the course of the meal we observed waiters on three occasions making errors with orders, bringing wrong orders to tables. As we were the second couple in the restaurant, I just wonder was there an error made with our order, for The Tannery, with such a reputation we were so disappointed. It certainly would not encourage us to make a return visit. I have had to wait a few days to write this review, I was so angry at the standard of the food we go, and to charge €28.50 for that miserable offering of Aged rib eye steak. Shame on you.

La Scala - Wexford
5a Cornmarket, Mallin Street, Wexford Town, Wexford

My partner and I visited for lunch last Tuesday, one of the very cold days. We were warmly greeted by the proprietor and his wife who showed us to our table. We were given a complementary glass of mulled wine, which was most welcome on such a cold day. We opted for main course, and we both had fish on this occasion it was fillets of John Dory, cooked perfectly served with cauliflower and broccoli and potatoes. The fish on the changes regularly as it depends on what is fresh and available each day. To finish I had a herbal tea, and my partner had a desert. We had an excellent meal and good value. This resteraunt has excellant Christmas Lunch and Dinner Menu's which are very good value. I would highly recomend this resteraunt, It is a true Italian resteraunt.

One Pico Restaurant
5-6 Molesworth Place, Schoolhouse Lane, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Our visit was on the occasion of my daughter’s birthday. This is a lovely Restaurant, with very at tentative staff. For the occasion that was in it, and while waiting for our table I ordered two Kir Royal, we were shown to our table promptly and our Kir's arrived. We ordered from a set menu (3 courses for €39), but half of the items on the main courses and deserts included additional supplements, which defeated the purpose of a set menu. We chose a bottle of Touraine cabarnet Franc at €29.00, for starters we had Terrine of Foie Gras, Our main courses were Pork belly with scallops, and stake, we had a portion of mixed roots. For desert we had creme brulet and a Warm Chocolate pudding these were excellent. We had two espressos to finish and I had a glass of port. Excellent meal. Our bill was priced as follows 2 x €39 set dinner 3 course €78.00 2 x €4.95 supplement € 9.90 2 x €8.95 supplement €17.90 side order € 3.95 2 x €3.95 espresso € 7.90 2 x €17.00 Kir Royal €34.00 Touraine cabarnet Franc €29.00 Ruby Port € 7.00 Total Bill €187.65 Service not included. In these recessionary times this bill is a bit steep If the menu is a set menu @€39 that’s what it should be, maybe a supplement for steak, that is normal, but a supplement for pork belly in this day and age come on. Need to rethink their pricing. but excellant food and excellant service.

Taste (Wexford)
1 Selskar Avenue, Wexford, Wexford Town, Wexford

Visited Taste today for lunch. My first and only previous visit was shortly after it first opened, I was so disappointed I didn’t go back until today. What a change around. I had Risotto with haddock, sun dried tomato and peas. It was yummy. I also had a glass of Cab Sav red wine (Chilean) followed by an espresso. Total cost €17.95 not bad. The two waiters on duty were both knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. very good experience will be back again.

Le Tire Bouchon

As a lone diner I visited this restaurant on a Monday night, I was pleasantly surprised to find a large number of people there of a Monday night. I went for the special menu , which was very good value for money. The sorbet was wow (Strawberry & Basil). The service was excellent, polite, courteous staff. Most enjoyable experience will be back again.

Greenacres Restaurant
Selskar, Wexford, Wexford Town, Wexford

Jacques French Bistro Visited here on Monday February 14th for Valentines dinner. We chose the set Menu @ €55. We were first given a kir royal, followed by an appetizer. There was an abundance of olives and bread. we both chose the Foie gras and confit duck terrine. For mains we had Hereford beef filet with chasseur sauce which was cooked perfectly, it came with vegetables and chips, I had a side salad. We decided to forego the chefs desert selection plate and asked if we could have a cheese plate to share instead, no problems there. We had a bottle of red wine that came in at €25. There was an excellent guitarist who played and sang during the meat. Most enjoyable evening and good value to boot.

Inniscarra Restaurant (Ramada Hotel)
Blarney Golf Resort Blarney Tower, Blarney, Cork

Inniscarra Restaurant @ Blarney Golf Resort Hotel, The hotel is no longer known as Ramada Hotel. However you still have the same excellant staff, and continue to serves some of the most wonderful food cooked to perfection. Our meal was part of a weekend package deal, the menu was the normal daily menu, with small supplements for eg; Steak not like some hotels that have a special menu for the package deal. I had a sea food roll which was excellant, followed by steak,which was cooked to perfection, served with plenty of seasonal vegetables. Followed by a cheese board. One cheese board is more than enough for two people. This resteraunt also serves an excellant breakfast, while most componants of a fry up is self service your eggs are cooked to order the way you like them. there is also a selection of fresh fruit, yogurts, smoked salmon, cheeses, cereals etc.

The Potato Market
O'Donovans Wharf Crescent Quay, Wexford Town, Wexford

visited for lunch today 29th July. had a lovely lunch. looking at the review by Duffo23 I just wonder Is he sure he was in this restaurant in November ? I am a regular lunchtime customer and really enjoy my lunch's there. In November 2008 there were only male waiters, I have never seen Camembert spring rolls on the menu. There was only one toilet on the premises at that time which was always spotless. The kitchen is open plan so the public have full view of the preperation and cooking of their food. This restaurant got a glowing review in the Irish Independant not so long ago.

O'Neills The Point
Renard Point, Caherciveen, Kerry

Visited O'Neills on Saturday 25th July. Called in at about 6pm to see what was on offer, lovely cosy pub, menu looked good, so we said we would return at 8pm for dinner. Despite the downpour of rain and the location of this pub we arrived to find the place packed, we met our hostess and asked for a table quiet understanding we would have a wait for a while, we got a seat at the counter, had a drink while we waited. The hostess organises the tables and takes the orders, she then has a number of waitresses who bring the food and see to any other requests you might have. Very efficient service, the food was excellent. We will defiantly be back. Later we spoke to the cook, this couple run an excellent business, No reservations taken, but everyone that comes in for food will get fed.
