Very nice modern restaurant, food was really good and the staff very nice.
Highchairs for babies available, they have a kid menu and baby bowl.
Prices are ok.
Short review this. Went here for breakfast when in need of something to restore us after the night before. Turned out very well - nice brunch selection of food (this was a Sunday by the way), including pancakes, hangover fry, and eggs benedict etc. Nice to see that (lots of places don't bother with a real brunch offering). The food was good - ideal for our needs and did the trick. Washed down with lots of coffee and tea (half decent coffee), it really fit the bill. And speaking of bill - it was well priced - I thought it was excellent value. Well worth a visit for a brekkie at least!
AMICUS (not a Spanish restaurant!!!!)
My first impressions on entering Paul Street's Amicus, after a long absence, were good. There was a jolly welcome and we were escorted to our lunchtime table upstairs. Seating was comfortably and the place looked good and clean.
The service was friendly and smooth throughout and we were asked if everything was okay two or three times which is about sufficient.
The food was excellent. I went for the specials, I often do. Started with a Celery and Bacon Soup, a hearty bowl of freshness with plenty of tasty bits in there.
Picked the main course off the board: Lamb with vegetables, garlic and rosemary mashed potato and a red win jus. Everything here was spot on, particular the vegetables which were cooked to a t, indeed a degree or two better than in a recent dish at Market Lane where they were a touch too hard.
They really have a huge menu here, huge choices and some bargains to be had. The drink list is also extensive and they sell red wines by the glass. I picked the De Gras Cabernet Sauvignon and this deep red medium bodied Chilean was great value at €4.95.
The bill for two (2 starters, 2 mains and 2 wines) came to €42.80. Would be quite willing to go back there again for an evening meal.
Great food at a good price. Their fajitas are to die for. I always get them when I visit here.
Situated in the gorgeous former Gingerbread House building right in the middle of the popular youth-oriented Paul Street area of the city, Amicus is an excellent all-rounder restaurant which really does have something for everyone. The extensive menu, featuring Irish classics like mussels and stew, a number of Italian items like their pasta and pizza ranges, and an impressive array of international dishes such as curries, satays and fajitas, thus ensuring that even a large group with varied tastes will be able to find something they like. And with prices ranging from a very reasonable €10.00 to €14.00, you're not likely to get a better feed in the city centre for less. They've also opened a tapas bar upstairs. However, due to its quality food and excellent value prices, it fills up quite quickly, and unfortunately doesn't accept bookings, so you may occasionally need to wait - however, the ambience and the food make it worth it!
Love this restaurant! Situated in a good area,helful and friendly staff with lovely food and the portions are very big!
