Okay, I know I posted below about a bad take away service but after eating in, I have changed my view completely and regret giving Starry Kitchen a bad review. Last Wednesday we decided to go for an early bird somewhere in the area. I wasn't in the mood for Indian as I'm not familiar with all the dishes so we decided to go to Starry Kitchen. The early bird is €15.50 for 3 courses plus tea or coffee. The service was amazing! The waitress brought us prawn crackers and when they ran out, she brought us more as SOON as they ran out and it was quite busy. She did the same with water and was very attentive throughout the night. I got the chicken satay, duck in plum sauce and chocolate ice cream and my other half got BBQ pork ribs, sizzling prawn satay and strawberry ice cream. The choice on the early bird menu is incredible, there are about 8 or 9 starters to choose from and the same with main courses. The main courses come with a generous bowl of rice or chips! If your ever in Drumcondra and want a nice chinese restaurant, this is the place.

Pyg Restaurant
Powerscourt Townhouse Centre, South William Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin

After winning a competition for a meal after the Pyg restaurant opened, it has become my all time favourite restaurant! So may things I could recommend for starters try the baked camembert or the prawn & salmon dish. For mains I usually go for whatever fish they have on the day, tuna being one of the best ones I've tried. The fajitas and charcoal chicken are also amazing... Desserts are to die for and the cocktails are even better! The only downside is it can be quite cold as it is in the middle of the Powerscourt centre but some wine would cure that ;)

Vermilion
94-96 Terenure Road, Dublin 6 , Terenure, Dublin

I went to this restaurant as a friend recommended it and I didn't regret it one bit. The food is the best quality, along with the service and value. They often run Facebook competitions and deals on those deal websites so if you have a few spare bob, definitely try this place.

Woodstock Cafe
156 Phibsboro Road, Phibsboro, Dublin

The Woodstock café is a local treasure, whether you want a yummy slice of cake & a coffee, breakfast, dinner or lunch this place does it all. They do a full Irish breakfast which is amazing! I've tried the dinner once and they give you great portions and there's great options too.

Gochi
13 Dawson Street, Dawson Street, Dublin

Gochi is one of the nicest Japanese restaurants I've been to. I'm not mad about Japanese food but this restaurant had great options. I opted for the tempura prawns and they were gorgeous, for mains I had the Katsu curry which seemed to be one of the most popular dishes and it was great.

Canters Tandoori
9 Fairview Strand, Fairview, Dublin

Went here for my birthday last month. I'm not the biggest fan of Indian food when its take away, I much prefer eating it in a restaurant. I used to pass this place all the time after finishing work so thought we'd try it. The food was delicious, high quality and good value! Definitely the best Indian restaurant I've eaten in.

Botanic House Bar and Grill
22-26 Botanic Road, Glasnevin, Glasnevin, Dublin

The Botanic House is one of my favourite restaurants in Dublin. The early bird is excellently priced at 15.50 for two courses and you get the selection of the WHOLE menu not just a select few items. The atmosphere is relaxed and the staff are attentive and friendly. For starters, I'd recommend the chicken wings- they're the best in the whole of Ireland. For mains, I like the salmon and seabass dishes. The burger and steak is a BIG hit with friends of mine so I must try one of those next time. I actually haven't tried the dessert yet which I must do!

Camile Thai Phibsborough
143a Phibsborough Road, North Dublin, Phibsboro, Dublin

Definitely my favourite place to order thai food to take away. I'd reccommend their green curry with chicken and add a few prawns to make it that bit tastier! They also have a new chicken satay noodle dish that is AMAZING. If you want a starter try the duck spring rolls. I'm hungry just writing this review...

Siam Thai (Malahide)
1 The Green, North Dublin, Malahide, Dublin

Siam is the best quality Thai restaurant I've been to. It tastes fresh and healthy. There was a Siam in town but it's gone now and we make the trek to Malahide especially for their food! The desserts are well thought out and DELICIOUS! The main courses are just the right amount of food and the starters are the best of all.

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

I came to this restaurant specifically for the ceoliac options as there aren't many places around that offer them. I was surprised with the range of exotic and foreign foods that were on offer, I love trying new things so I was so excited! You can get deli meats, cheese and then proper meals also. Its a nice little quirky place with lovely staff. You can also buy food to take home and there is a supermarket style part too.

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

I love the porter house food so was excited to try this place as the porter house run it too. The quality of food is great, although a tad expensive. The location is lovely and close to all the cities good clubs so if you wanted to go out after dinner its perfect!

Foam Cafe
24 Strand Street Great, Italian Quarter, Dublin

I have to say I love this quirky, unique and fun little cafe. It is a great place to go with a group of your best girlfriends and have a good gossip over lunch and tea. The dishes, cups and place is general is so different and makes you want to come back. The lunches are quite nice ranging from sandwiches to salads and the desserts are AMAZING! Staff get an A++!

Rustic Stone

Came here one day while shopping in town, and was expecting something amazing. Honestly, I wasn't that impressed. It was very upmarket and I didn't feel comfortable here.

Il Corvo Restaurant
98-100 Upper Drumcondra Road, Dublin 9 , Drumcondra, Dublin

I came here for a 21st birthday in June and was looking forward to it so much as we used to go here years ago. The staff are friendly and very helpful. The atmosphere is cosy and elegant. There was a group of about 15 of us so I'll just tell you the highlights of everyones meals, the prawn cocktail and deep fried brie were the most popular starters and i would HIGHLY recommend the brie! I had salmon and a baked potato which did not fill me at all, but the other mains looked filling. My partner had the salmon pasta and the others had the pork, lasagne and steak and chips! Everyone was happy and we'll be back for the next special occassion!

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

I came here with my boyfriend for dinner on a Saturday night because we've been hearing so many good stories about it so he decided to treat me for our 4 year anniversary :) I had the Irish Lamb Slow Roasted and let me tell you, it was THE best lamb I've had in any restaurant. It was succulent, moist and flavoursome. I will definitely be ordering the lamb again. My boyfriend got the Sixty6 Rotisserie Chicken and he was a happy man! He especially loved the stuffing balls. I am tempted to try the duck next time but the lamb is too good to turn down... The staff were friendly, helpful and the atmosphere was cosy and modern.

Hedigans The Brian Boru
5 Prospect Road, Glasnevin, Dublin

I've only really started going to the Brian Boru in the past two months but I must say I am now a regular! They have an amzing beer garden which is nicer than some you see in pubs/clubs in town! The boys in our group drink Guinness and suggest that the Boru pours a nicer pint than elsewhere.... The food is nice for somewhere relaxed and chilled for chats with friends or for a meal with the family. Its not badly priced either and the selection of food is amazing. This place is a hidden gem, I used to pass it all the time but it looked dull from the outside but its not at all! And last night (a Saturday) we passed by and the upstairs was open with music coming out of it so I must try it on a Saturday! The bar staff are lovely too (: I'm 21 and love the place! Not for a proper night out obviously but for chats with the friends and some nice food.

Fagans
Drumcondra, Drumcondra, Dublin

My friends and I are always in here, don't be fooled into thinking that its a place for the older generation, we're all about 20-24! The pints are amazing as always, I always get the Budweiser but the boys drink Guiness, being the Irish men they are, and rave about the stuff. The food is amazing too also they changed they're early bird menu and the selection isn't great. The carvery is lovely and as far as I know runs til 3pm on the weekdays and until 7pm on a Sunday. When I'm low on money, I order the chicken nuggets and chips which is under €5, but don't be fooled the chicken is amazing, its not just any old nugget! You do see Bertie in here a lot but recently we were talking to Michaél Martin who stopped by after some meeting. Wont be talking to him again :P

Il Posto
10 St Stephen's Green, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

I won a €50 voucher for Il posto and we decided to try in out last night as it was a special occasion and with the current economic situation decided a free meal would go down nicely. This is NOT the lace for young people, I'm 21, well spoken etc but they gave off the "what are YOU doing here" vibe which made us feel very uncomfortable. Anyway, sadly we just missed the early bird through no fault of our own so settled on two main courses both in the €20 to €25 range. I got the seabass, but all that was served with it were green beans. The person I was eating with got the steak and "chips" (chips as in THREE small sized wedges, THREE). Needless to say we were starving afterwards, but I'm sure if we had have gotten the three course early bird it would have been better. Saying that, I think they should make everyone feel welcome no matter what their age and sadly I dnt think I'll be returning again EVEN if I got another free voucher.

Bits and Pizzas
15 Patrick Street, Dun Laoghaire, Dun Laoghaire, Dublin

I used my menupages voucher to go to this restaurant and lets just say, I will definitely be returning. I DEFINITELY reccommend the chicken wings, they are the best I've ever had. The chicken is succulent and the sauce is so tasty you just want to keep licking your fingers!! :) The pizza I hadd would have been nice, but I chose toppings that I didn't like. Other than that it was lovely! The waitress was lovely, and you get breadsticks and dip to nibble on while you wait :) I cannot wait to return and try the chicken wings again.

Chilli Banana
112 Upper Drumcondra Road, North Dublin, Drumcondra, Dublin

This restaurant is unique and had a lovely atmosphere when you walk in. The lights are dim and there are candles on the table. I wouldn't say its my kind of food, I was brought here for a family outing but the food was of good quality. The service was great, the waiter was friendly and helpful but the value wasn't great.

South Street Restaurant
Great Georges Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

This is my second review of South Street because even a year or two later it is STILL my favourite restaurant. You go to other Italian restaurants but never get the same friendly staff as this restaurant. Let me start by saying 12pm to 5pm Monday to Friday they do a two course lunch (which is more like DINNER) for €8.95. On Saturday and Sunday its the same time but goes up a euro to €9.95 which isn't too bad compared to other places. The starters consist of Garlic Bread, Bruchetta, Soup or Salad and mains are a choice of any Pizza, Pasta, Panini, Chicken Curry or Jujeh... I was reluctant to try the Jujeh because I didn't know what it was until my partner bravingly tried it and I was so jealous. You should all definitely try it! If you end up missing the lunch offer apparently they do any pizza/pasta for €10 so still amazing value!

Nandos Swords
Swords Pavilions, Swords, Dublin

Personally, I thought the price was great. €30 for two main meals, four sides and two re-fillable drinks. The ordering process is a bit awkward but the food makes up for it. They have plenty of choice, ranging from lemon and herb chicken to the spiciest chicken. You can get chilli salt on your chips for that added hot factor. I'll definitely be going back here to claim my half chicken from the loyalty card :)

Zaytoon (Lower Camden Street)
44-55 Lower Camden Street, Dublin 2, Camden Street, Dublin

Very authentic atmosphere in this well located Persian restaurant. The kebabs had a healthy feel to them and you didn't feel like you were breaking the bank. The home made burgers were very tasty and the sides are well priced with chips being €2!
