Moloughney's Clontarf

I went to Moloughney's in Clontarf for a Sunday lunch and it was just brilliant. The presentation was great and they really don't skimp on the portion sizes. There was three of us for lunch with each having 2 courses, 2 soft drinks and 3 coffees coming to a total of €71 euro. If you haven't been to Moloughney's you have to, with the brick walls and dark wood it creates such a nice setting for the restaurant. 

I opted for the chicken with a honey glaze which was served with baby carrots, mashed potato and a roast potato, the chicken was so moist, and the sweet and sticky honey glaze was really nice, it wasn't just a typical roast chicken dinner. The carrots were a bit al-dente which was perfect and the mash was seasoned perfectly and was proper mash -no lumps!

For the dessert I had the lemon tart, something light and refreshing at the end of the meal, this was served with some creme chantilly (cream with vanilla pods and some icing sugar) and a raspberry coulis, the lemon tart was fresh and zingy and the coulis was sweet the flavours all worked really well together and the plate was presented well with clean lines.

Overall really enjoyable meal, having been there more for breakfasts having the dinner was a nice change, will definitely be returning to Moloughney's
