Pinocchio Italian Restaurant & Wine Bar
Luas Kiosk, Ranelagh Village, Dublin 6, Ranelagh, Dublin

5 of us ate here on a Thursday evening. the restaurant wasn't full and service was good. I ordered the ravioli special and I think it was a starter due to the size, although it was pleasant to eat. For an Italian restaurant not to serve pizza is a bit odd, just didn't feel like a true Italian Restaurant. Restaurant is ok, but then so are so many more, slightly overpriced.

Kafka (Dublin)
236 Lower Rathmines Road, Dublin 6, Rathmines, Dublin

Little gem of a place. Rathmines needs places like this. The risotto was just on the spot not too al dente yet not mushy. Reasonably priced and good service. Will be back

Le Bon Crubeen
81-82 Talbot Street, Dublin 1, City Centre North, Dublin

With the half price voucher the meal was great value, however there are too many tables and the atmosphere is lacking. Food was above average and there was no rushing you in or out which was a plus.

D Mughals
158 Westend, Mallow, Mallow, Cork

This is a pleasant Indian restaurant with a good choice and is very well priced. However the meals are aimed at the "European Indian" and not authentic Indian food. In a town this size it would be a big step to go out and serve truly authentic indian food. A good experience and will be back

Used the menupages voucher and food was excellent. Will definitely be back but when it's cooler as the air conditioning needs revamped

The Green Hen
33 Exchequer street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

We came across this place by accident as a close by restaurant didnt advertise an early bird, but were pleasantly surprised. Although the restaurant is quite small and not a lot of room at the tables the food and atmosphere were good. We hadnt booked and were told that as they were busy they would need the table back in an hour and half. That suited us and although we thought we had plenty of time the service was not rushed. The food is above average and tasty and good value for the early bird cost. We will be recommending this restaurant to my friends and intent to return soon

The Morehampton Brasserie (Previously the The Restaurant @ Donnybrook Fair)
89 Morehampton Road, Dublin 4, Donnybrook, Dublin

Went to the wine tasting dinner on Wednesday night. This was a great experience as it was a set meal and set wines with each course. Very enjoyable evening was had

ely gastro bar
Grand Canal Square, (Next to the Bord Gais Energy Theatre), Dublin 2, Grand Canal Dock, Dublin

Ate here on sunday night. Oysters were very bland and when you get one on the plate that is closed - you wonder!!! I had the lamb - it was very good which almost pulled it back, my wife had the burger which she enjoyed but wasnt overwhelmed by it. When the plates were cleared we asked for the sweet menu - it never came . Observed the people beside me asking for their veg with their main meal - it was not ordered / noted by waiter at start and arrived when they had almost finished Unfortunately not to the level of the other 2 ely and was expensive for the level of service over €100. Possibly could have got away with it 5 years ago but not now, wont be rushing back but wont hold it against the other ely's

Douglas & Kaldi Rathbourne

called on way home for a pint and ended up eating. Food good, but place needs to be busier to get a good atmosphere. price was reasable too and will be back

Dobbins Restaurant
15 Stephen Lane, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Ate from the early bird menu and there was a special offer which was advertised on the tables but nt initially offered until we asked. This was the only complaint we had except we didnt leave ourselves enough time as we had a show booked. Very very good and the offer was excellent value for money. This is somewhere I will be back to and spend the evening there. All the staff were very pleasant and the atmosphere was great, food was very good. Thanks and see you soon

The Exchange Restaurant and Cocktail Bar
The Westin Dublin, At College Green, Westmoreland Street, City Centre South, Dublin

excellent food and service, it is good to see that the staff will recommend wine and food combinations. The restaurant was quiet - I suppose it was a Tuesday night. Very hard to fault except the toilets were miles away. But still has teh old celtic tiger policy of cost - it is expensive

Novo
Harry Street, St Stephens Green, Dublin

4 of us ate here on a Friday night. All meals were ok but it was not memorable and the restaurant was not overly busy. Average ratings for average food, service and atmosphere, but was reasonably priced and there were no faults and the place was clean. Would go again if invited, but if I was booking it wouldnt be top on the list

Hugo's
6 Merrion Row, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Saturday lunch times are enjoyable when you have places like this, you can chill out for a couple of hours over a bottle of wine and some good food. However my food was slightly cold and the ravioli was a bit heavy and chewy, but not enough to send it back. My partner had the platter and she was slightly concerned about the asian soup with cheese and cold meats, she was right as it just didnt hit the mark, although all was tasty it was just a bit confusing on the flavours. The lunch was very enjoyable and was good value for money. We will be back again soon and has a great atmosphere and service was good

Fallon and Byrne
11-17 Exchequer Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Called in off the street on Saturday and were lucky to get a table as we hadnt booked. this unortunately was a mistake. Sorry but this place is simply too expensive. I was annoyed at Ken Homs comments last week saying that the resturants could easily cut their prices by a third, this is a prime example. 2 main courses and a cheese board for 1 and a bottle of wine €101.00 - yes over €100.00 it shocked me - no coffees no starters no other drinks. Ok lets put it into context - the wine was €36 but it wasnt 1st Cru just plain Chablis, I m aware that drink is expensive in our country but this should have been 10 - 12 quid cheaper. cheese board for 1 consisted on 4 different and tiny slices of cheese, sufficient yes but it was a tenner all other sweets 7.75 - again 15-25% over cost. That leaves the mains, my partner had bream and I had the pork, the food was good but at €27 for each course its not worth it. This place must hold 150 or so and gives an impresssion of an upmarket school dining hall with rows of tables. sorry but I will be voting with my feet and wont be back unles the prices come down, the food is simply not the standard the prices portray. Service was good and in general food was to a good level

Coastal Cafe & Wine Bar
Unit G07 New st Shopping Centre, Malahide, Dublin

Had a quick lunch here on Saturday and it was pleasant. As with most cafes the tables are too small and the place is quite cramped but the service was efficient and swift and food was to a good standard. slightly pricey but the place was busy and it was 3pm after the main rush. Will stop in again if Im i the area

Il Segreto
13a/b Merrion Row, City Centre South, Dublin

Twelve of us had booked for 7.30 on Friday night and were were shown upstairs. 2 of the party were late but this wasnt an issue with the staff who were more than helpful throughout. This is a great restaurant and for a party of 12 with 7 steaks ordered you could have expected one meal to be cooked incorrectly or coldish or delayed, but not the case. the house wines were selected and were of a resonable quality and suited the different meals sufficiently enough. The staff were very attentive and were on hand when required without being a burdon or looking as if they wanted to get home. The only issue was the risotto which I had ordered and thought it was a bit heavy but tasty enough, the lamb special was was just that and was a great choice by one of the party. We eventually left around midnight after the live music which was pleasant backdrop and not over powering. This is another restaurant where we will be back and its good to see that eateries now seem to be stepping up to the mark to provide high quality service and food at realistic prices, thank heavens for the demise of the Celtic Tiger

Brasserie Sixty6
66/67 Great South Georges Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin

Visited here on Thursday night and the place was jumping. This restaurant is large yet it didnt lose any of the intimacy you get with smaller restaurants and although there was a young crowd with fake laughing and pretence at the next table it proved to be more of a side show than an annoyance, why do people not act normal and be themselves. We took advantage of the menupages offer of one main course free when you buy another which just made this experience even better as it was a good discount on our bill. The service was fantastic and our waiter was well in control of all his tables and aware of what was happening, well done sir great job. Wine menu was sufficient with a reasonable choice I read a few of the reviews before going and people were saying they could do with having more food. We totally disagreed as the starters and main were plentiful, I couldnt finish mine. the only downside was a piece of shell in the crab starter, but this didnt warrant a complaint. We will be returning again soon

ely bar & brasserie
CHQ Building, Georges Dock, Dublin 1, City Centre, IFSC, Dublin

best restaurant yet. saturday afternoons are made for this. we had chosen a bottle of wine and after dicussions with the bar man he recommended a different wine at the same cost, and he was right. Thanks food was good and if there was any fault the waitresses were slighty over attentive which gave the impression that they were looking for the table, however they werent. We initially thought that the prices were high, but not after teh experience. We will be back

we called mid week and the power had been recently off in the area, no else was in the restauarant. food was average and although service was reasonable it was not the best for us being the only ones there. pity but if i was asked to go back i would be there without any concerns

Luigi Malones Restaurant
5/6 Cecilia Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin

we were in luigis on a thursday night and it was busy atmosphere was great although tight for space the service was good for how busy they were and we had no problems or complaints here the food was just above average and slightly disappointing but not bad nough to complain however we will probably be back again

The Gables
McCabes Wines, The Gables, 1 Torquay Road, Dublin 18 , Foxrock, Dublin

A Monday night and this place was busy, thats a good sign. To me this would be a great spot to waste away a Sunday morning as it has a real relaxed feeling about it. Our food was very good and the service could barely be faulted. All in ll the cost was slightly expensive but the charm of the place made up for it and I will be back

Chai Yo
100 Lower Baggot street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

This is somewhere a group can go to go for a bit of craic. I had my daughter and 2 of her friends out and the chef was very entertaining for the teenagers who really enjoyed the experience although when a couple joined our table as we were finishing the same routine started again, it could be a long night for the chef. Food was of a good standard with the sea bass being the best. It was slightly more expensive than I would have liked which would make this more of a one off place to visit with a group rather than a local restaurant. All in all the experience was enjoyable

Les Freres Jacques
74 Dame Street, Dublin City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin

I had heard a lot about this place and was looking forward to a chance to eat here. I got that opportunity and my partner and myself visited on a Thursday evening. The service is excellent and cannot be faulted and the attention to detail was superb. However I had the fillet steak and there needs to be an agreed standard in all restaurants as to what rare and medium mean. My steak to me was to me overcooked yet was very tender but both means were on the small side. We spent more money that we thought and this marked the restaurant down a bit, although I will be back

ely winebar
22 Ely Place, (Just off St. Stephen’s Green), Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

This place is a must visit ad I have ate here a couple of times now. We had a table booked for 7pm but due to traffic we were half an hour late which was a bit of a concern as at the time of booking they informed us that they would need the table for nine, although we would be welcome to sit at the bar after this. As it happened they didnt need the table and at no stage did we feel rushed. Service was excellent and the suggested wine from our waitress was a great choice, thanks for that, even better was it was 8 quid cheaper than the wine I was thinking of ordering. Food was excellent although the cheeses were strong!! atmosphere excellent and value for money was good if slightly expensive but all in all worth it. Of the restaurants to recommend to my friends this has arguably to be at the top of the list

Ravi's Kitchen - duplicate

Was here on a tuesday night and it was empty - well almost one other couple. The food was really good and there is plenty of choice and service was good - suppose it would have needed to be This is somewhere I will try again except at the weekend

Baan Thai (Leopardstown)
Central Park, Block P, Dublin 18, Leopardstown, Dublin

We went last night for dinner and the menu is massive, too much choice. I was disappointed in the Goond Nang Fai Dang although the prawns were really succulent there was only 3 small leaves of pak choi. Service was good and there was a good ambience in the restaurant

Quay 16 Restaurant @ MV Cill Airne
MV Cill Airne, North Wall Quay, IFSC, Dublin

We had our staff party on the boat and there was app 80 of us. The night was very enjoyable, food excellent even more so due to the numbers and service was very good indeed. Unfortunately I had to leave early but the party was beginning to rock. I dont know what this would be like for a cozy meal for 2 as the dining room was very open, possibly adjusted due to our numbers, but I will try it again to find out

FourteenBelow @ Crowne Plaza Dundalk
Green Park, Dundalk, Louth

just ate in 14 below for lunch. We were there before half 12 lunch and the place was quiet, although it started to fill up. I ordered the cod and my partner ordered the guinness pie - the pie was stunning. The meat perfect and tender and the flavours oozed out. I was disappointed that I didnt order it but the cod and fries were very well cooked and full of flavour as well. hats off here, this was very good and reasonable priced food for lunch, a place to go if your in the area

My Thai
The Beacon Hotel, Beacon Court, Dublin 18, Sandyford, Dublin

Well as promised I returned to My Thai although we arrived at 10pm when they were closing, there was no problem with ordering food. This place just gets better and I would recommend it for anyone in the area as it is a must. The staff are more than friendly and very hospitable and they did not seem to be in any hurry to get us out to clear up. Thanks to all

Milano (Baggot Street)
1 - 2 Haddington Road, Dublin 4, City Centre South, Dublin

It was lunch time on a busy Friday afternoon and we had not booked, but got in ahead of the masses and sitting at the door we noticed a number of people being turned away. This place is very busy and has a great atmosphere and buzz about it. This is a typical chain restaurant food, although to a higher standard that other pizza chains. The service was slightly slow, but this was due to the numbers in for lunch so that cannot be faulted too much, however all staff were very pleasant, welcoming and capable for the crowd and the experience was definately value for money

Darwins
80 Aungier Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

A Monday lunch in this restaurant was excellent. Service was very good and they accomodated us all very well and we were a large party of 18 and it was a pleasure to see that the staff knew who had ordered what insead of the "who ordered this" effort that you get in a lot of restauarants. Shrimp starter is excellent. I had the turkey for main course and was surprised to see the turkey and ham both thick cut. My personal preference was to have a thinner slice but it was very tender and cooked well. Some of the other party had the steak and every one was very well cooked from rare to well done all perfectly served and very tender. Well worth a visit and I will be back

Olesya's Wine Bar
18 Exchequer Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

A second visit on Saturday was equally pleasant, the food was excellent, we had pate to start and this could have done for a light lunch between 2 which a few did actually do when we were there. We followed with prawns with chorizo salad and risotto and the prawns were really tasty. One thing the wine bar needs to do is to extend the special offer for lunch on saturday as well as we noticed a number of people stopping and reading the board then leaving when they realised that it wasnt on. There is a recssion on and people are looking for bargains and can get them in other eateries around

Milano (Temple Bar)
19 East Essex Street, Dublin 2, City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin

Booked on a Tuesday night in November and when we arrived the restaurant was busy which is generally a good sign. Absolutely no complaints about the service, food and value. an enjoyable evening all in all and will be back. although we only had a pizza each they were cooked well and tasty. Toilets are always an indication of the hygiene standard of the restaurant and these were clean.

The Chili Club
Anne's Lane, South Anne Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

There was a large group of us on saturday night and we were shown upstairs. The waitress did not smile once throughout the whole night and was quite cold, we gave her the benifit of the doubt that she was having a bad day but that isnt any excuse for not smiling or being pleasant. The food was basic and definitely not worth the money. toilets were basic and could have been cleaner. I will not be rushing back.

Koh
6-7 Jervis Street, Millennium Walkway, Dublin 1, City Centre, Italian Quarter, Dublin

One of my favourite spots to eat, however the service on a quiet Tuesday was not to its usual standard, we were shown to a seat in the corner and then forgot about. After that everything was fine and as expected
