Want somewhere that does semi normal food cos I think he's a little bit of a picky eater.
My ideas are
Marco Pierre Steakhouse
Fallon & Byrne
I've only been to Marco's out of that list but have heard good reports on the others...any feedback on any of these or suggestions of other places?
Ok - dinner on Sat with the new guy I'm seeing and it's my choice where to go this week....
Was gonna book Trocadero but it's booked up
Another place you could look at is Alfies - people in work love it!
Elephant and castle - temple bar
Fire - in the mansion house - haven't been supposed to be fab, have a voucher for this cant wait to use it!!
I looove la cave, the food is gorgeous and it's very cosy and atmospheric. It's like being in a little french restaraunt in Paris
Salamanca, the tapas bar next door to Trocodero is lovely? And it's a huge menu so he's bound to find something he likes!
Only thing is, they used not take reservations, not sure if they do now.
Tell us all about this new man!? I didn't hear about him, I miss everything! Where did you meet him, what's he like? What date is this? Tell me tell me tell me!
Tapas is a good idea I think. Get loads of tapas and then share (very romantic!)
Hope it goes really really well!!
Ok - I'm gonna be one of those picky Bitches who asks for places and then says no to half of them!
Fire is a lovely restaurant and the food is really good but its much too open - massive high ceilings and all open plan....I wanted something a little more rosemantic.
Elephant & Castle - love the food but a bit casual for what I'm looking for...plus we went to their sister restaurant TriBeca in Ranelagh a few weeks ago.
Salamanca - defo worth a thought....although we went for tapas in The Port House about 2 weeks ago too...
Will have to look up Alfie's also.
Ciaraella thanks for the feedback on La Cave - love little small romantic places!
SmileyKaz....I met him online! I closed my account after a few weeks but we had swapped numbers just before I did and he text me and then it went from there! Only been going on a few weeks really...kinda once a week seeing each other...tonight is our first midweek date - bowling
I think my favourite restaurant in Dublin is Pichet at the moment. Fab food, fab service, fab atmosphere.
Ooh yey! Delighted you're enjoying it and that it's going well! I met my husband online too!
Delighted it's going well for you and that you're having fun. Don't worry about not being able to bowl, I'm terrible at it too. Just go and enjoy it and have fun and he'll love you for that, he won't be worried about your bowling ability!
Keep us updated, the start of a relationship is so exciting and lovely. Enjoy!
Il Posto on St. Stephens Green is lovely -
