    One month wedding anniversary to be precise, for foodies -- foodies into nice food rather than pretention though, so no foam unless it's really, really good foam.

    Price isn't really an issue unless it's just plain silly money, but service should be very good.

    Thanks,
    adam

    Went to Eden for our 1 year anniversary :D ... it really didn't disappoint :)

    Chapter One (Parnell Square North) is hard to beat for food and service but it may be difficult to get a table with one month's notice!

    The Blackboard Bistro, Clare Street.
    The Chief (Pierre) is trying to attract some evening punters rather then just the office day crowd and does a really nice job of it. Food is magnificent, rustic French, lots of meats - rabbit is lovely if it's on the menu. If there is nothing on the menu that you fancy then just ask (if it's not busy) and he'll try to accomindate. He only has a wine licence so if you are looking for a cognac with your coffee you have to go elsewhere...but sure that just makes the night out last longer. :)

    I'm older than Minecraft goats.

    Nonna Valentina is a pretty romantic type place in Portobello, nice and authentic Italian!


  • Registered Users Posts: 588 Lao Lao


    Mermaid Cafe on Dame St, Unicorn just off St Stephens Green, Le Guilleton on Fade St and Eden in Temple Bar are all favourites of mine!

    Oh, forgot The Winding Stair, food there is great too!

    I was thinking that myself. It's not so long ago when you'd have to be thinking 6 months ahead to get a table there! :)

    Very true shrapnel - but as it's for a wedding anniversary, I'd say it's for dinner! ;)

    (Don't they also do a pre-theatre thing where you return after the performance for dessert etc.)


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 16,659 ✭✭✭✭ dahamsta


    Hey, like, maybe I'm special. :)

    (It is pre-theatre and we were told we need to be out by 7.45 or something. I'm not sure about the dessert thing.)

    Ah, that explains it!

    Quick followup for anyone that finds this thread via a search: Chapter One was absolutely corking, great food and great service. I'd highly recommend it, and my thanks to those that recommended it to me!

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,614 forbairt


    it was the pre theatre meal ? ... whats the cost like if I'm allowed to ask .. nice wine ? :)

    (or I'll just have to walk by it)


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 16,659 ✭✭✭✭ dahamsta


    About €90 for the two of us. No wine, just 2x minerals each.

    That's a relief! :) When recommending a restaurant, there's always a danger that others may have a different experience!
