Had the chicken Alla Toscana, chicken and prawn linguini, chocolate fudge cake and the berry crumble. All delicious. Very friendly staff. Very good value. A great experience.

This is such a 'treat' restaurant. The food is simply fantastic. The menu is very small, and I'm limited in what meat I eat so tend to eat a lot of vegetarian. While they dont push their vegetarian menu they do have a separate vegetarian menu on request. I can honestly say I have never, ever tasted cauliflower as delicious in my life. How they can make a plate of cauliflower taste so delicious, and serve it in such a variety of ways is simply unreal. And as for their desserts - probably the best choice of amazing desserts in any restaurant. I've tried a few. They are based on older chocolate/ice creams e.g. Bounty, Brunch, Super Split. You HAVE to save room, you really wont be disappointed. I never even mentioned their snacks and starters, all great, I cant tell you how good their Devil eggs are. And as for you carnivores, himself has sampled quite a few of their dishes and declared all fantastic. My only downside is the room itself - it always seems a little cold, I think it's the tiles on the floor, not that I'm sitting there cold! I really would recommend this restaurant to everyone, it is one of those gems you have to try.

Indian

8-12 Terenure Place, Terenure, Dublin

I like this restaurant, which is the reason I frequent it quite a bit. It is decorated in authentic Indian style, which I love. The service is friendly, especially if you are regulars! At this stage we have tried most of the menu and there is nothing we ever had a problem with. What I particularly love is so few of their dishes have cream in them - I find cream in meals very filling - but there are some for those of you who enjoy. For anyone with walking difficulties there are stairs leading up to the restaurant and there isnt a lift so be mindful. This is a restaurant I would highly recommend.

First time for me and I expected to be wowed. The service is simply excellent, without being intrusive. From welcome at entrance, to service in waiting bar area, and restaurant itself, it was simply flawless. We arrived for lunch and had a wonderfully relaxed afternoon being pampered in a chilled but professional atmosphere. Now for the food. The amuse bouche was a delicious mouthful of, well deliciousness. Tiny cubes of corned beef, carrot and what I think was a type of frothy creme fraiche - what a delight. My soup described as lentil with smoky bacon, was a fabulously light, delightfully tasty....mushroom soup - well that's what it tasted to me, and I loved it. There were two small ravioli in the bowl, with a filling I simply failed to recognise, I didnt get any taste of lentil or smokey bacon, not that I am complaining. His tuna tartar, was...interesting, in my opinion it was over pickled, meaning there was no taste of the fish whatsoever. Again I'm not saying it wasnt tasty, it just didnt taste of tuna. We both went for the Halibut - these plates were simply excellent - the fish was cooked to perfection, the butter sauce was plate licking good (no I didnt...but you know what I mean) the accompanying carrott puree was divine. The whole plate worked very, very well. The accompanying mash potatoe, while incredible creamy, had just a little too much butter for me, but hey not that we didnt finish it off. Unfortunately we both love chocolate fondant as dessert and neither would yield and choose anything but, so two fondants were delivered. These were the most disappointing part of the meal, very bitter, the additional coco powder covering the top was OTT for both of us, and very little ozzing chocolate, which for me is the definition of a good fondant. The accompanying stout ice-cream, not to my taste on paper, was delightful. Overall we did have a super afternoon, but for these prices, well I'd expect excellence.

Steak

4 Rathfarnham Road, Terenure, Dublin

Another lovely evening in JD's, friendly staff and good food and wine! Got the pate to start, they give very generous portions with this, really tasty too. Tried the steak burger for a change this time, could do perhaps with a bit more sauce but thats a personal thing. Another lovely evening, great value, recommend a visit!

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and will dine again. Observation as opposed to criticism - for a party of 2 we felt it was very very loud and noisy - you probably wouldn't notice if the party was 4 or more - you probably cannot do anything about this but as I said an observation
