Chapter One

Reviewed By Emma P - Ryde, United Kingdom

This restaurant is a complete gem. It is a beautiful experience from the moment you step through the door. We went for the lunchtime tasting menu with wine flight which was great value especially compared with some uk equivalents I've visited. The food was sublime, wine perfectly matched and the staff were a delight and made our visit a real experience. Definitely the highlight of our Dublin trip. A lunch I will remember for q long time.

Reviewed By ms1232018

We ordered soup and some extra bread on the Bank Holiday Monday. The bread was freezing and the butter was rock hard. The soup took a half an hour to come out. If it was particularly busy I would understand but we were one of the first people in the restaurant. It was obvious the soup order was forgotten, again if it was busy I would understand. My partner ordered a coffee and he received a cup only half full. I ordered a lucozade and sparkling water which both took an unusually long time to come out. We were just about to leave because we were waiting so long for the soup when the waiter came over to tell us they were just heating up the soup. When the soup came out it was lukewarm. Although the decor and fire were lovely which is why I chose 'poor' and not 'terrible'. There was also no acknowledgement for the length of time it took to heat up two bowls of soup. I never thought I would have this much drama ordering some soup and bread. I had heard good things about the restaurant and was very disappointed in the service and food. I don't think I will be making the journey back.

Limetree Cafe

Reviewed By cdwchgo - Chicago, Illinois

It was actually mild enough to eat outdoors here last week. I started with a yummy chocolate shortbread bar while waiting from my friend to arrive. They had a nice assortment of salads, sandwiches, and Deserts. There were also many coffee and tea drinks (and sodas) to choose from as well that were reasonably priced. Great wifi as well. Very clean, personable, attentive staff.

Maximilians Bistro & Wine Bar

Delicious food served in salubrious surrounds with live music on weekends

Reviewed By carooolz - Sydney, Australia

Located on the floor above Supervalu, we were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food here. We had a birthday dinner for a group of 6 (there is a 10% service charge for group of 6 or more). Service was very good and good served quickly. We had buffalo chicken wings for starters and while it was not hot and sour, the 6wings tasted really nice with some aioli. The only thing I didn't really like was complimentary garlic bread as it was served cold, but that's because I think it would taste better warm. For mains we had black spaghetti (from squid ink) and mixed seafood, and spaghetti alle vongole. Both were huge servings with plenty seafood and a befitting wine sauce. Not at all like those restaurants that serves loads of pasta and cut back on the seafood. With mains costing less than €20 each, and also cutting and serving the birthday cake for us, this is a restaurant that provides superb food and service at very reasonable prices. Make sure you go hungry.

Brownes Steakhouse

Reviewed By Irek S - Dublin, Ireland

I spent two hours in Brownes Steakhouse yesterday evening. Restaurant is cosy, clean, there is enough room between tables. I ordered steak on stone (20 Euro deal with glass of wine). Staff was busy but friendly. waitress brought steak on hot stone, meat was good quality. Chunky chips were just chunky chips. There were few things to improve - beer,,,no Guinness in Dublin restaurant ??!, spices - I don't think that for this kind of restaurant buying hand grinders for FRESH pepper should be a problem, pepper I found on my table was old without aroma. Garlic butter was great. Steaks were without sauces at first and we had to wait for few minutes meat sizzling on stone.
Steaks were very good, great food experience, I will be back for sure to check their turf and surf. and yes, I recommend this restaurant and its nice atmosphere.

The Bell Pub

Great Irish pub with huge portions of traditional Irish food, with a daily special. A half portion of a full roast beef dinner including two types of potatoes, stuffing, gravy, and a vegetable medley for under 7 Euro. Very tasty and great atmosphere in a local pub.

Reviewed By TriRidge - Issaquah, Washington

Dinner for 6. Large place. Appropriate, nice décor for an old pub, but airy. Good servers--friendly, helpful. All had fish & chips--most of us thought it was very good, but 1 didn't. Big beer selection. I'd go again.

Bradys Castleknock Inn

Reviewed By motorcar1 - Dublin Ireland

Needed somewhere handy for lunch today as we needed to pick up our eldest Grandson from school at 2.40pm. Decided to visit Bradys as it's ten minutes to the school and the food is always good and the staff are excellent plus there is plenty of parking which is a plus when you need a wide space to open doors fully to get children out of child seats.
We had sandwiches and tea, most of the sandwiches are served with chips and salad. Their Turkey,ham and stuffing Sandwich is fabulous.
It a pleasant spot for lunch, it's good quality and value. Well worth a visit.

Reviewed By Brian W - Dublin, Ireland

I have been frequenting Bleecker Street Cafe Bar for over 5 years now. For breakfast, lunch and dinner it is always a great option when in town or if heading Northside. My staple favourites are the Chilli Cheessburger, Burrito and Chilli Con Carne. The daily special is always worth enquiring about, as it can throw up a few gems. There is an early bird menu from 3pm-7pm which offers 3 course for €19 with plenty of choice.
The premises has recently been refurbished from top to bottom and is fantastic for holding parties and gatherings. The choice of beers on tap and in bottle have increased substantially over the last year or so.
Close to town without the central prices makes it a winner.

The Boathouse

Reviewed By permia - Ireland

After a delightful tour of the big house we adjourned here for a snack. Wonderfully placed adjacent to the lake it is a most pleasant eatery.
Even though quite crowded we were lucky to get an outside table. From the good menu we chose a tasty snack. With coffee and a cappuccino, we enjoyed the hour or so we spent here.
With friendly and helpful staff and a perfect location, we recommend it highly for a stop-off.
