Expert review of Eatery 120

Flavoursome Eatery 120 is a favourite for Dubliners who like to escape the city centre drill.

Another favourite of mine, Eatery 120 is a sure-fire crowd pleaser, both for a delicious, leisurely brunch downstairs or for a catch up over dinner with friends amid the buzz upstairs – the social atmosphere and welcoming staff make you want to stay forever.

Food and drink: 

There are no surprises on the menu, but herein lies the comfort of Eatery 120; simple dishes cooked to perfection with the freshest ingredients – think creamy mash and hand-cut chips, yummy. The wine list is a nice blend of Old and New World wines.

Recommended dishes: 

Blokes rave about the rib-eye steak. I've (almost) licked my plate after their beetroot and feta cheese risotto. The vegetarian breakfast is fresh and delicious.

Ambience: 

It's semi-formal with lots of character helped along by interesting design features. There's a really quirky selection of lights – downstairs is typically candlelit for romance, while the extra space upstairs is generally booked for larger groups and hence, the atmosphere is livelier.

Service: 

It's efficient but relaxed and super-friendly. You’ve got to love staff for accommodating large groups with a smile, even when dessert and coffee is long since finished!

Location: 

It's a bit of a step from the city centre, but Ranelagh is worth the trip for this restaurant and the many others alongside the cute cafes and excellent bars.

Price advice: 

Dinner is excellent value with no mains over 30 euros but the best value is the early bird menu (Monday-Friday 5.30pm-6.45pm); two courses for 19.95 euros or three courses for 23.95 euros.

Tables to book: 

Request upstairs for groups or downstairs for romance.
