I have been here numerous times and I always enjoy it! The staff are brilliant, so friendly and attentive and will chat away to you while you order or in between courses - it really makes you feel like you are on holidays! On my latest visit, I had a selection of olives for a starter which were very tasty, all different sizes and flavours. For a main course I had pasta con pollo, which comes in a creamy sauce with peppers and mushrooms. There is a different selection of pasta each day, which you choose from a plate, and they are always unusual types! We all got huge bowls of pasta which were hard to finish, but it was so tasty I didn't want to leave any! Will definitely be back, I want to try everything on the menu!

Reviewed 23rd June 2010 ( visited 23rd March 2010 )

The menu is hard to choose from, I liked the sound of a lot of things! I eventually went with the Malaysian chicken which is a curry full of mushrooms and quite spicy. It was really good. The other half got Chilli Chicken Ramen which was a noodle dish but was very watery with the noodles and veg stuck in the bottom. It still went down well though. The chicken wings as a starter are also nice, very very spicy! The service is fine, the place was quite busy aswell. Prices a bit high, but I think its like that because it is a well known chain of restaurants.

Port House Pintxo
12 Eustace Street, Dublin 2, Temple Bar, Dublin

This place does really nice tapas. It is the sister restaurant of the PortHouse and it is just as good! We got 6 tapas (or pinchos!) between us which was way too much! Chicken wings, deepfried prawns (with the most delicious garlic sauce!), ham croquetas, albondigas, paella and a big plate of mini chorizos. Everything went down a treat and together with half a caraf of the house wine, the bill was less than €50! The service was fine, would definitely recommend it as a place to grab a quick bite before heading out, as you can pick and choose as many of as a few dishes as you wish!

Salamanca
1 St Andrews Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

This is one of my favourite restaurants! It is always busy, even on a Monday or a Tuesday evening! The service is very quick and it really is like dining in Spain. My favourite dish is the paella carne which comes with chicken and chorizo! There is also a seafood option. I have also tried the steak in redwine sauce, stuffed peppers, albondigas and patatas bravas. If you order tapas, about 3 or 4 would be plenty between 2 people, and they are relatively cheap! A main like paella is about €12 and the portion is huge, well enough for two people! I always want to come back whenever I leave this restaurant! They also have a spanish guitarist some nights which is brilliant, but a little loud if you are sitting right beside the speakers!

Franzini's
Frenchs Lane, Trim, Meath

Came here one Sunday evening, and had a very enjoyable meal. You can get 2 courses for €20, which is very good value, considering most of the mains are around €16/€18. I went for chicken wings, which came with a blue cheese dip. They weren't particularly spicy but delicious all the same. I had chicken fajitas (comes with guacamole, salsa, creme fraiche and cheese) to follow, and I literally could not finish what was on the plate! The food here is really tasty, the service is efficient and it was quite busy for a Sunday evening. The only difficult thing was trying to decide what to choose for both courses as the menu is so varied! Would definitely recommend a visit.

Siam Thai (Andrews Street)
14/15 Andrews Street, City Centre South, Dublin

Really enjoyed eating in this restaurant. The staff are very friendly and the food is top notch. I went for the green chicken curry and it was perfect. Perfect portion, really creamy coconut style curry and quite spicy too. The rice was nice and fluffy and there was plenty of it. It is very reasonably priced aswel and there are about 4 tables in the window, which are nice to people watch whilst eating. Will definitely be back here before long, there are a number of things on the menu I am dying to try!

Saba
26-28 Clarendon Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

I have been here numerous times, with friends and my boyfriend and it is without a doubt my favourite restaurant in Dublin. The place is always buzzing, the food is delicious and the service is polite and efficient. You really need to book a table here, even on a week day evening or lunchtime, it is always packed with people. I usually go for a wok dish, Phad Prik Sod with Chicken. This comes with rice and lots of vegetables in quite a spicy sauce. I have also tried the green curry which is equally delicious. I have tasted some other dishes too including Boom (the spiciest thing on the menu!) and the chicken wings starter are to die for! The only thing I would fault is the price. With many restaurants lowering prices, most mains in Saba are €17-€19. It is such a popular place though and really great atmosphere, you don't much mind paying a few extra quid!

Odessa
13 Dame Court, Dublin, City Centre South, Dublin

The menu is quite comprehensive and awkward to read the way it is laid out. But there is a good choice, with many different types of food. For a starter I went for a plate of pitta bread, dips, olives and roasted vegetables, which was very nice! My main dish was chicken, asparagus, chorizo and roasted potatoes, in a red wine sauce - it was one of the best meals I''ve ever had, I would have liked to lick the plate clean! My boyfriend had nachos for a starter, covered in melted cheese, salsa and jalapenos which were very tasty! For a main he ordered enchiladas which pretty much consisted of the exact same ingredients - something a waiter might warn you about in future! But everything was delicious, so I wouldn't really fault this restaurant at all! They also do some dishes for €5 similar to tapas, which might be worth a try.

TriBeCa
65 Ranelagh Village, Dublin 6, Ranelagh, Dublin

Have been her numerous times for dinner, always going for the famous (and completely delicious) chicken wings! This time was a lunch visit so I decided to try something new. I ordered the bruschetta, expecting toasted ciabatta style bread topped with chunky crisp veggies and melted cheese. What I got was slightly different, soggy bread and a very soft combination of tomatoes, aubergines, rocket, olives and mozzarela. Having said that, I still enjoyed it and ate every last bite!! It didn't beat the chicken wings though. Service was friendly and efficient as usual, seating us quickly even during the busy lunch period. Bruschetta maybe a bit overpriced, but Tribeca generally is.

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

Ordered from an early bird menu which was only €16 for a starter and main, very good value! From looking at the main menu, it seemed quite reasonable aswell, with main course from between €12 and €14. I ordered chicken wings and a chicken burrito, both of which were delicious! The nachos looked great, will definitely be ordering them the next time. The waitress was a little rude but I think she was just run off her feet at the time, as the place was quite busy for a Sunday evening.
