A mother & daughter event hallmarking our last day of 2018 in the elegant, sun-filled & chandelier-lit dining room dedicated to High Tea Service with bright views of the Stephen's Green. Attentive, excellent top-notch wait staff. Beautiful china, cutlery, linens & display of foods. Delicious foods coupled with lovely presentation. Chocolate-snow-sleigh cakes topped with precious candy canes. Lovely, large selection of various aromatic teas from around the world--each one specially detailed like a phrase from a book of poetry. Piano player lends beautiful layer of ambiance to the experience offering a series of nostalgic works. Other guest areas within the hotel were gorgeous to visit, particularly while adorned with Christmas decor. A highlight of our time in Dublin! More

Italian | Grafton Street, Dublin 2

Our group of 12 had a lovely meal here. For starters, we had grilled veggies, charcuterie and burrata mozarella, and my main was the pumpkin tortelloni. While it is not the best Italian food in Dublin, it was yummy and nicely presented. The Blind Pig is particularly great for its ambiance: a cosy cellar-like space, with flapper-era music and intimate lighting. We asked for a custom, surprise cocktail and we got a wonderful gin-based concoction. The service was very polite. More

The Ramen BarThe Ramen Bar
Japanese | South William Street, Dublin 2

Our journey took us to the city of Kagawa to purchase Ireland's first state of the art ramen noodle making machine. We make all our noodles fresh on site in the restaurant's kitchen. Ramen is a Japanese noodle soup dish. It consists of Chinese-style wheat noodles served in a meat or fish-based broth, often flavoured with soy sauce or miso, and uses toppings such as sliced pork, dried seaweed, menma, and green onions. Nearly every region in Japan has its own variation of ramen, from the tonkotsu (pork bone broth) ramen of Kyushu to the miso ramen of Hokkaido.More
