Recently took a party of 9 for a Communion lunch. There was something on the menu for everyone - vegetarian, meat, fish, chicken and pizza options. The food was beautifully presented, very fresh and super tasty. Everything was piping hot and served by very friendly and attentive staff. Everyone had a starter, main course and most had deserts and teas/coffees. The value for money was exceptional with a bill of about €180 including a bottle wine. This restaurant is hard to beat at every level. The staff and great food helped make it a very memorable day!

Three of us went for lunch and had their special €9.95 menu, two having the Spring Salad which was just artistry on a plate - nice and light. One of our party had chicken wings on a stone platter, also well displayed. Then the three of us had the sea bass without the poached egg as we did not want it. This was served most decoratively on a green base of leeks, beside it, beetroot diced in a sauce, with a swirl of courgette - the whole plate decorated with pea puree dots. Tasted good too! But so pretty it seemed a shame to eat it!
We were beside the fish tank with tiny coloured fish drifting by, and opposite the pizza oven, so could see them being freshly made. The view out the window is of a row of buses beside the Dart station, so convenient to get to, around the corner from the Town Hall in Dun Laoghaire.
It was not crowded when we arrived, but filled up a bit later. Staff were very attentive and friendly.
We also had a glass of the house wine and tea and coffee. They do an evening special dinner menu for €19.95, but have not tried it - they also have a kids menu and a pizza one.
I would definitely try it again.

I tried this restaurent with my family on a recent bank holiday, 2 adults, 3 kids. They served one adult and one childs meal first, then 25 minutes later the other meals arrived. I asked why they did this and they said their policy was to feed kids first ... so what about the other 2 kids that did not recieve food for another 25 minutes? This was an excuse as they had completley forgotton about the other orders. I don't mind people making mistakes but then trying to make a fool out of the customer ?? My ham-burger tasted like it was a week old.
All this and I could count at least 7 staff and just 8 customers in the place - all in all it took 115 minutes to get some lunch, never again. Ended up having to buy sandwiches about an hour later.

On a sunny bank holiday the usual haunts in Dun Laoghaire were jammed so we made our way towards Milano but seeing the very vivid yellow sign for Travel Restaurant we decided to have a look at the menu, it looked good, tables seemed available so in we went.

From the off set we were pleased. Staff were lovely & pleasant, 2 waiters & a woman (owner I think?) were back & forth to table with drinks/taking order/ensuring we were happy.

Food was really good. We ordered from the 9.95€ lunch menu - 2 courses whilst my daughter ate from the kids menu. Starters were chicken/mushroom vol au vents - light & tasty & a perfect starter. We awaited our pizzas. One pepperoni, one spanish pizza & a children's ham/cheese - the base was light & crispy, the toppings were plentiful without been over powering. The pizza's are cooked in stone oven, each hand made upon ordering (you can see it happening from where you sit) and really the price didn't reflect the quality, I would expect to be charged much more.

In total it was under €33 for 2 starters, 3 pizzas (all large) and 3 drinks, bargain!

My only negative comment would be the signage & the name, it didn't inspire confidence, but I'm glad we didn't judge "a book by a cover" so to speak!

We went here after finding that Nando's still have yet to open in Dun Laoighaire.

This is a small restaurant that has a pizza oven that makes fresh pizzas and it is BESIDE Milanos who only do pizzas...

The menu is pretty limited (but much better and wider than Milanos - if you don't eat cheese!).

The service is very good and the food fresh.
