The Silver Note Cafe (opposite Walters) does a really good breakfast if you're feeling the need on a Saturday. They have a daily special (on a Saturday at least) which varies week to week. Spiced baked eggs, salmon on sourdough toast, etc. Got to be bettehealthier than watching cholesterol congealing on your plate. Special and a coffee is about €9.

Toscana (on the seafront beside Teddys ) is great for special occasions.

Now, the only one of those lot that I eat regularily in is the Club in Dalkey. Really top class for lunch(that is all I have had). Great place to meet and chat. Keep going you are giving us all ideas of just what is available in and around our great town.

Love eating out, would do everyday if I could ;) most of the places mentioned I've been to for a meal and the only one I would never go back to is Toscana's :sick: maybe it was just busy while I was there, but the food was dreadful, loved the Purple Ocean but that's gone now, what a pity lovely view over the harbour once you got a window seat. ;)

I think Baker's Corner has great pub grub and very good value for money. The best chunky chips I have ever tasted, piping hot and big crispy chips. Good curry, burgers, chicken, fish and specials of the day. I must admit to eating in Wetherspoons a couple of times in the past and thought it was OK for the money. However we had two steaks there last night both of which were what Dancer said. Now I am down to two choices on their menu, but there is very cheap drink and a great view. Also blue ginger for breakfast.

Can't say there are many places in Dun Laoghaire I'd be runnin' back to, however, "Bits an Pieces" I would recommend.Always a cheerful place and not too expensive. Recently had a lovely 'All Day Breakfast' in Leanardo''s,on the old Adelphi site and would definitely go again.Beautifully served, and the coffee was magic too.A touch expensive, but, the fare was excellent.

If I had to choose, I would probably say that Indian cuisine is my all time favourite. Where exactly is the Eagle House?
and more importantly; what you have to eat? I don't understand people drinking wine with Indian food, I much prefer an Indian beer.
Glad you enjoyed your evening out Micheál, it's nice when you get good food in a clean well run restaurant.

Very posh lot you all are.

I would make up a Ham and Tomato Sandwich and a can of Fanta and I am as happy as Larry siting down the seafront anywhere. Total cost €4.
