    Mochaland: Mochaland

    by hevbell Written Apr 12, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We were staying in an apartment just round the corner from here so it was very handy for us but we returned 3 times, as we were so happy with the food and service etc Staff were very friendly and eager to please with great service and food was delicious.

    Its a small cafe serving breakfasts, lunches and coffee, cake etc They have a good range of items from continental and traditional cooked Irish breakfast to bagels, soups, salad, sandwiches and main meals with daily specials.

    Open 8.30am to 7pm Monday to Friday, closed weekends

    Favorite Dish: We went here our first morning for breakfast and all had the Big breakfast - huge helping of bacon, Irish sausages, beans, scrambled egg and toast with a drink for €7.50. Loved it so much we returned two days later for breakfast again.

    We also ate lunch here on our last day. I had a lovely dish of Tagliatelle with spinach and bacon in a creamy thyme sauce. Very tasty!

    Dunderry Lodge Restaurant: Off the Beaten Path but worth a journey

    by Beausoleil Updated Oct 24, 2013

    Nearing the end of a month in Ireland, we decided to spend a couple nights near Trim to visit New Grange and Knowth. We found Cranmor House B&B which was lovely. Anne, our hostess, recommended Dunderry Lodge Restaurant in the tiny nearby village of Dunderry so we drove over.

    It’s wonderful. You are seated in the lounge by the fireplace and they take your order. You relax in the lounge, with drinks if you like, and when your meal is ready, they come and get you, seat you and serve you immediately.

    Favorite Dish: Ed had pork meatballs for a starter and I had a rich seafood chowder. We both got roast breast of duck and it was superb. They serve the vegetables family style which is nice. I took more than my fair share of autumn squash mashed and wonderfully seasoned! We were much too full for dessert but I’m sure those would be equally good. The price was very reasonable for the quality.

    We wanted to return the next night for another dinner but they are closed on Monday so we had to find another restaurant. This was definitely worth a second trip and certainly worth the rather long jaunt out from Dublin. Certainly if you were staying anywhere near Trim, it would be great.

    Trinity College Dining Hall: Eat like a student

    by yooperprof Updated Jul 22, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Lamb Rogan Josh was my Lunch entree at Trinity College's historic dining hall. Not bad for cafeteria food! (And a real travel bargain.)

    The original structure dates back to the 18th century. However, the interior was heavily damaged in a fire in the 1980s, so most of the current building is a rebuild. Still, it's a beautiful place for an inexpensive lunch.

    Meeting House Square: Fresh bread,

    by IrishFem Updated May 3, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    .If you're in Dublin on a Saturday morning head to the Meeting House Square in Temple Bar just behind Eustace Street. You can buy freshly baked bread, fresh vegetables and home made cheese or have a made to order pancake or sushi, paella and waffles. Lots of organic, gourmet and imported foods. Well worth the visit if only for the delicious smells. A great buzz about the place. You can also visit the Gallery of Photography which is located in the square and admission is free. During July and August they show free movies in the square on a giant screen in the evening. Start time around 10pm. You don't need tickets just get there early. Take a brolly with you, it is outdoors.

    Favorite Dish: Pancakes, home made bread and cheese.Fresh organic fruits and vegetables.

    Oscar Traynors, L'Orangerie and Giovannis are v good. Do not even think about going to the Grand Hotel for dinner, I went there for my college graduation and the food was so horrible, I wrote a letter of complaint to the manager. Of course I never got a reply.

    Four Star Pizza: Good deal on a pizza!

    by lbhspatriot Written Mar 11, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Four Star Pizza is a franchise well known in Ireland, they offer good (really good) pizza deal in quality prices. Usually there is not much room for a large gathering in the store itself, so the irish treat it rather as take away/delivery service. There is some room to sit for a single person or a couple, so if there is more of you just take it out and eat on the green.

    Four Star Pizza has its stores all around Dublin and in Dun Laoghaire, the closest to city centre would be probably the one in Ballsbride (on 51 Shelbourne Road) - near Lansdowne Road dart station (just of the GAA stadion).

    They have really good deals and special offers that would suit anyone on a budget or with a huge apetite- so if you are hungry this is a place to go.

    Favorite Dish: The Meal Deals most definately!

    For example the Mega Deal gives you:
    - a large pizza with 3 toppings
    - garlic pizza bread
    - potato wedges
    - chicken dippers with dips
    and a bottle of coke!
    Everything for 19,95!!!!

    There are many more deal to check out at:

    Butler's Chocolate Cafe: Best Hot Chocolate Around!

    by kehale Updated Dec 4, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I'd actually heard of Butler's through VirtualToursit and was insistant we would have to go to one while we were in Dublin. After spending a few days exploring, we took a day to wander around Grafton and Naussau streets and check out some of the shops. It was an absolutely freezing day (fitting as it was the day all of the Christmas lights were turned on in the city), so I knew it was the perfect time to try Butlers.
    We tried the Cookie Hot chocolate and loved it, and even better your hot chocolate comes with a free truffle. I had to go back one more time before we left the city and had my chance at Dublin airport (just had a regular hot chocolate). Early in the morning for so much chocolate, but so worth it! On that trip we also picked up some Butler's chocolate bars to bring back home! Delicious!

    Favorite Dish: The Cookie Hot Chocolate was great... and an idea we've brought home with us. Hot chocolate poured over the cookies until they go all soft. Yum! Really sweet and the hot chocolate is really creamy - definitely a great drink for a cold day in Dublin!

    Gourmet Burger Kitchen: Not a Bad Chain Restaurant

    by Jase1177 Written May 15, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Gourmet Burger Kitchen (gbk) is a chain restaurant in the UK and Ireland mainly that puts a nice spin on the standard burgers. The decor is clean and modern with comforting medium wood tones. The menu offers several choices of beef burgers and a few other types of burgers. I ordered the lamb burger with mint relish, and a side of onion rings. The lamb was cooked well and blended nicely with the mint. At first the burger looked enormous, but then I realized that the meat was thin and the size came from the large portion of lettuce and tomato. The onion rings were fair. Everything was very messy and the rings were greasy (but not in a horrible way).

    The service at the Temple Bar location was good, and the staff very friendly.

    This was a good place to eat if you just want a burger, but if you are looking for something memorable and special, I would go elsewhere.

    Butlers: Best Chocolate and coffee

    by lina112 Written Apr 2, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    My friend told us that the best place to have a good coffee but not for a good price is in Butlers, we payed about 3 euros each for a cappuchino and a for a mocca but it was worth and for every coffee you have they give you a chocolate. They have a good selection of chocolates, cookies, toffees and cakes to take away. At the airport on departures after passing the passport control, there are a butlers coffee where you can have the last coffee before leaving Dublin and on some shops there are an special offer with chocolates.

    Marks & Spencer: Rooftop Restaurant, Atrium and Good Food

    by Mikebb Updated Mar 28, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a first class, modern restaurant located on the rooftop of the Marks & Spencer store. It is a large restaurant with a glass roof which let in plenty of light.

    We were expecting the normal run of the mill large department store dining room. Far from it and so popular that we had to join the line of people waiting for a table mid afternoon. The menu is extensive with many interesting meals, a good wine selection and above all a very nice ambience.

    This was our first meal in Ireland and an unexpected pleasure. The restaurant attracts an assortment of people but the majority were locals and it was interesting to see many "little old ladies" dressed in their finery who treat themselves to a traditional afternoon tea.

    We enjoyed our meal, one of the better meals we had during our 10 day visit to Ireland. The attached web link rates this restaurant in its top 15.

    Charlies Oriental Food Bar: 10 Pints of Guinness then Singapore Noodles!

    by johngayton Updated Mar 12, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The much-missed writer Pete McCarthy (whose book McCarthy's Bar should be compulsory reading for everyone who wants to visit Ireland) used the price of a plate of Singapore noodles as his personal yardstick as to how economically developed a place is. I have to agree with his judgement that Ireland is pretty economicaly developed - i.e. dashed expensive!

    Here in Dublin there is a small group of eat-in/take-away Oriental restaurants called Charlies which are relative newcomers to the Dublin eating scene. Charlies isn't set up to offer Oriental culinary delights and keeps to a fairly basic menu of standard fast-food dishes and, by some accounts, targetted at the post-pub market.

    The menu, though simple, does have a decent variety of dishes. Service - admittedly on a quiet Sunday night after midnight - was friendly. The decor is all chrome, glass and plastic, but none the worse for that - this isn't the sort of place to try impress your first date (unless of course you've just met her at closing time and you're both starving - for food!).

    Favorite Dish: Of course it has to be the Singapore noodles!! These were as good as any as a cure for post-pub munchies. Good thick noodles with just the faintest hint of chew, plenty of prawns, good spice-kick, a few veggie bits thrown in to make you feel that this is healthy-eating, and as an added bonus a few slivers of duck too.

    At 10 Euros for a plate of noodles these aren't the cheapest in the world but then this is Dublin - as Pete posits: [Is there an Irish] "starch tax on all carbohydrates that aren't potatoes?"

    Burger King: What You Know

    by darkjedi Written Jan 27, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We popped into Burger King half way down O'Connel Street and had a snack. You know what to expect from a place like this so here are current prices if you have any Euro's left.

    Whopper E6.95
    Double Whopper E8.25
    The Angus E7.25
    Chicken Royale E6.95
    Spicy Piri Piri Chicken E7.25
    Double Angus E8.25
    Bacon Double Cheese E6.95
    Chilli Cheese Bites E1.50

    Favorite Dish: I had the Spicy Piri Piri Chicken, which wasn't very spicy so don't expect too much, though I'm pretty sure it was chicken lol. There is a different menu in Ireland from the UK and there were many products we don't have, though I have no idea why this is true?

    If you are looking for a place, but you are not exactly sure what you want this is a great website.
    You can look up restaurants by location, cuisine or price range. What's best is that almost every profile contains a menu, so you can check out if the restaurants offers anything worth your appetite w/out getting out!

    Trattoria Ristorante Italiano at the Parliament: Must have Tiramisu

    by cjg1 Updated Feb 1, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The food here was decent. Her steak was quite nice as was my dinner. It wasn’t blow me away good but the dessert made it worth the trip.

    The service in here was miles better than what we had experienced trying to go to Tuscana. They were funny and had some tips for us and honestly seemed thrilled to have early customers. It was just about half past five.

    Favorite Dish: The Tiramisu was amazing. Highlight of the weekend food wise except maybe lunch in Harrod's on the way home.
