(yep, the spelling is right) 16 St Stephen's Green (01 676 3144) does good food and has a good buzz to it. It's around €60 per head including wine.
67 Dame Street, (01670 7119) is unstuffy and also does good food. Around €50.
The Tea Rooms,
in the Clarence Hotel (U2
's hotel) 6-8 Wellington Quay (01 407 0800) is classy, and the food is good too, but a little pricier at around €70-€80)
If you really want to impress with a venue, try La Stampa
36 Dawson St (01 6778611) which is in the ballroom of an old Georgian building. Expect a minimum of €100 per head, again inculding wine, though.
If you REALLY want to go overboard try the Michelin star restaurants such as Patrick Guilbaud's
, though you won't have any change out of €200 per head. Let me know if you're interested and I'll get the address and phone numbers for you.
Moving downmarket, Keating's
64 Mary St (01 878 0223) is in an old converted church and has a good atmosphere. It will only set you back around €40 per head. Food is good too.
2-3 Chatham Row does great Oreintal fusion food and is very reasoable at around €30 per head including wine, but you can't make a reservation.
For daytime eating, Avoca
11-13 Suffolk St does great food and is very cheap.
