Best for Value for money - Expert review of Green 19

This trailblazer bucked Dublin’s recession with low prices, delicious food and funky music.

Two words - love it. Mouth-watering food, affordable prices, cool staff, contemporary art and funky music. Oh, and the creative cocktails, or compromising with the mojito ice-cream for dessert. Yes. Even the website is trendy. What’s not to love?! 

Food and drink: 

Most people's favourite dishes are on the menu with a few twists, so it's a safe option. Szechuan-spiced lamb sits alongside confit duck leg and fish and chips or an organic burger. The brunch menu is exciting; baked eggs with camembert and patatas bravas or a Sunday roast with Yorkshire pudding, you'll be drooling.

Recommended dishes: 

Sorry to be boring, but the fish and chips or the organic burger are my top picks, and the chips are delicious!

Ambience: 

Laid-back cafe style, sociable with no fuss – there’s a cute terrace upstairs for sun-soakage if you can grab one of the three tables. There is also funky music and contemporary art. 

Service: 

As above! Fuss free and relaxed, however if you're in a rush maybe stay away as there's generally a wait at busy times. 

Location: 

It's at the end of Camden Street, atop of Wexford Street, and a five-minute stroll from Grafton Street.

Price advice: 

This is the best bit – nothing is over 10 euros!

Tables to book: 

If it's sunny, try to beat the rush to the tiny outdoor terrace upstairs. Otherwise, downstairs is best.
