according to Tom Doorley (who's word I generally trust except he has a sick fascination with the bad ass cafe and captain americas) it is very good. You can't make a booking though which is a pain in de hole. We tried to go recently but couldn't get a seat. Also, La FRONCH aren't too good on veggie stuff, are they??

Can we talk about places outside the pale? Cos i'd just like to say that the homeplate in galway does the best breakfast fry in the world and the staff are lovely.

This is great! Thanks, Kirstie!

What's the word on the new 'French' place across from the Market Bar? I keep meaning to try it, but I haven't made it. What's the menu like?

l'gueleton, or something? it is extremely nice, but as aforementioned, you can't book, which means there are literally queues down the length of fade street when it opens on weekend nights. the time i went, i turned up at about 8 on a monday and got a table for half nine. the menu seems to change quite regularly, but it's all french bistro type cuisine - cassoulets and mussels and roast duck and so forth - and it's not particularly expensive (i think the mains started at about twelve quid). i didn't notice what the veggie options were, i'm afraid. but they do very good chocolate brownies.

Cafe Paradiso in Cork is my favourite place to eat. There was nowt in Dublin in the way of nice veggie gaffs while I was there.
I do miss the Bombay Pantry in Rathmines though.

Bombay Pantry is super smashing great

The Thai House in Dalkey is yum! And affordable!

Where dogs wear hats and birds fly backwards
I know all these have been mentioned before, but just in case anyone missed em, here's some places I like:

Diep Le Shaker off Pembroke St (Thai)
Jaipur on George's St (Indian)
Khyber, dunno the name of the street, it's the same street Musician Inc is on I think, there's always a guy with a funny hat standing outside (Indian ... atmosphere is shit but food is ace)
Mermaid Cafe on Dame St (normal, good bit of fish, dunno about veggie)
That Moroccan place round the corner from Tower records
