As an avid foodie, it would be weird to not write a review of some of my favourite dinner restaurants. One of my favourite things about living in Dublin is the array of restaurants that exist. So with that in mind I’ve put together my top three. Although it was painfully difficult, I’ve delved deep into my soul to decide on these three. All of the below are very reasonably priced.
Toscana, Dun Laoghaire
This is a little gem. I would recommend visiting time and time again. Not only is the food super authentic Italian, the setting and atmosphere is always beautiful. Aside from the exceptional pasta and pizza, Toscana is situated just beside Teddy’s ice cream if you want to have an Italian-Irish dining experience. Moreover, it’s just a few minutes from Dún Laoghaire east pier for a post-dinner walk.
Maybe it’s because I live three minutes away. Maybe it’s because the food is delicious. Either way, I couldn’t write this list without featuring Cinnamon. My favourite dish here is a veggie tagine with couscous, followed by the selection of ice cream and/or sorbet. If you’re planning on heading “out out” after dinner, the Monkstown restaurant is just minutes from the DART while the Ranelagh restaurant is by the Luas green line.
Green 19, Camden Street
Although Camden Street is often referred to as “the street behind Coppers” it has lots on offer in the way of food. One of my favourite places to eat in the city centr is Green 19. I first discovered this little spot about four years ago and I am delighted that it is still as amazing as ever today. The menu is extremely varied, meaning it is an ideal choice if you have a fussy eater among you. The drinks menu is exceptional with beautiful wines, quirky soft drinks and out-of-this-world espresso martinis. Added bonus: you always get a Milky Moo mint when you’re leaving.
