Anton's — standing the test of time

Thu, Sep 12, 2019

For me, it all started with a tuna sandwich. There was a time (pre-mortgage and pre-children) that I lived just round the corner from Anton's and was as comfortable there as in my own dining room. Anton's has been deservedly rewarded with many years of success on Father Griffin Road. Simple food and excellent value for money explains why it has so many regular customers, and has been part of the neighbourhood's life for so long. It is a mighty achievement for a modestly sized restaurant that is always busy and bustling. This little cafe is big on taste. The formula is simple and has stood the test of time, unpretentious and uncomplicated cooking that has charmed customers year after year.

All in a flap

Thu, Sep 05, 2019

Now that the dust is settling from all that back-to-school excitement, the reality sets in. Every year it's the same old story — we start off with enthusiasm only to be left defeated by day three when what was lovingly packed earlier comes home intact again. If back to school wasn't bad enough with sorting uniforms, books, the dreaded gum shields, we also have to make sure they have a lunchbox filled with food they will actually eat that will keep them going until they get home. Before you reach for the old reliable 'hang sangwidge' and 'cheese strings', here's a suggestion that might make this morning chore a little easier.

Indulge at The g Hotel

Thu, Aug 29, 2019

Watching trends in the accommodation sector in Ireland is always interesting. Recently we have seen a number of high profile four and five star hotels engage in multi-million euro refurbishment programmes, essential work if we are to compete with the rest of the world. However, there are still many establishments that have been short on the maintenance and refurbishment front for a number of years. As prices rise again customers are not always seeing an equal increase in standards. While hotels undoubtedly benefit from investment, as salubrious as these premises may become, they will ultimately fail to impress unless the standards of staff, service, and food matches and complements the surroundings.
