Ladies, can anyone suggest a nice restaurant for anniversary dinner? Dublin City centre or southside. Can't be too fussy as that usually involves food on the forbidden list. Was thinking of Shanahans cos at least I can eat a steak. Would really appreciate any suggestions.
The best meal I have ever had was in L'Ecrivain. I know it is expensive, but I would prefer to have one excellent meal there than 3 mediocre meals elsewhere. They make such an occasion of eating out in there. I felt like the bees knees! Their website is terribly bad for such a fine place to eat though: [url:z19hr2mk]http://www.lecrivain.com/menu.htm[/url:z19hr2mk]
On a different budget, but still very good is O'Connells restaurant in Bewley's Hotel, Ballsbridge. It is run by Darina Allen's bro, Tom O'Connell:
Enjoy your night, wherever you go!
Hope that helps! (& happy anniversary!)
We recently had the most amazing Thai meal in the Baan Thai restaurant in Sandyford and they also have a branch in Ballsbridge... it was out of this world (it's so good they have received an award from the Thai government for the authenticity of their food...
Thanks ladies. We've actually booked Pearl - have heard good things about it.
Can't believe some of the restaurants in this city though - you can only get a table at 6.30 or 9.30...I'd be eating the table leg if I sat down at 9.30. Then would probably fall asleep in the soup.
