“Delicious Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

This restaurant we spotted exploring Blackrock. It is elegant, the staff are very welcoming and efficient and the menu had a nice varied selection. The Sunday lunch menu was great value. Honestly from the starter which was one of the specials for the day to our dessert choice from the menu the meal was truly delicious. There was a good wine selection as well. We will definitely be going back!

“Leisurely Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

I had my first experience of Dali's last week as a few of us had a lovely lunch to mark the departure of a friend from work. One of the group was a regular so he was warmly greeted at the door and we were shown to our table.

We ate from the lunch menu which had a good selection of starters, mains and desserts this was augmented by the daily specials. There was an extensive wine list and it was unfortunate (for me) that I was driving so couldn't enjoy the choice on offer. One of our party fancied a steak but not the rib eye which was on the menu so asked what else was there and was given the option of a fillet steak.

I had a venison sausage in pastry ... yes, I know ... a sausage roll .... which was nicely presented and tasted even nicer. Chicken liver parfait was chosen by others which was served with a nice chutney and breads. Main courses arrived and the portions were just nice for lunch - hake, cod, chicken and steak around the table and not much was left. What is one the menu is exactly what you get, if you would like a side of veg etc. you will need to order it specifically.

Dessert was a chocolate brownie with chocolate sauce ... usual fare here, nothing spectacular but enoyable all the same.

Overall the service was pleasant, efficient and unobtrusive, There were only a few other small groups in the place so I could not comment on what it would be like if it was full but and it will be somewhere I will hopefully be back to again.
