Only 3 days in Dublin and would love to plan for good food, without doing all the checking! Anybody have a favorite?

I am planning my Dublin trip right now, so these are the places that I have read about and placed a star next too!....

Queen of Tarts - Awesome bakery with reasonably priced lunch menu

Cafe Fresh - Dublin's best vegetarian restaurant

Beshoff - Best fish and chips in Dublin

Also, there's a great organic food market on Saturdays in the Temple Bar area where I'd like to get lunch.

Try Gallagher's Boxty House, located in Temple Bar. I saw it on a Rachael Ray show and we decided to try it. Very good!

Johnnie Foxs Pub was nice...little hard to find though in the Wicklow mountains.

Bewley's for tea and scones on Grafton Street...

we went to the Gallagher's Boxty house too...that it was good...one of my Dublin myspace buddies recommended Wagamama for some non Irish food.

if you get to Galway (Ireland's West Coast of course)- McDonagh's Seafood House for Fish and Chips!!!!!!!!

Ditto to Queen of Tarts, great pastries.

Burdock's for fish and chips (split one they're enormous).

Eden for a nice fancy dinner.

The Farm on Dawson street - all organic; near Trinity College. Casual, good food, typically priced.

Jan, I saw the Farm on Dawson! It looked great, but I had already had dinner. Having only 36 hours in Dublin, I did not make it to all of the eateries I wanted to visit...

However, now that I'm back, I wanted to chime in with quick info about the places I made it to...

Queen of Tarts: If you get your savory tart to go, it's almost 50% off the price, compared to dining in! So I got two savory tarts, one salmon and leek and one tomato with brie. It was a nice lunch.

The outdoor food market in Temple Bar: Fantastic! There were good raw food options and just a whole lot of other things. Great selection. A few samples to try out too, like Irish apples and some yummy olives and cheese.

Beshoff: I don't know if it was the best fish & chips in Dublin as I read since I only tried it at one place, but it was reasonably priced compared to some menus I had glanced at in other pubs along the way. 8.50 euro for cod and chips. It was tasty!

The Lemon Crepe and Coffee Co: I had a delicious vegetarian power plus crepe there for dinner. I felt super charged for a fun night of pub crawling :D

I didn't make it to Cafe Fresh, but there is a coupon on their website to print off for 20% off your meal.

Thanks for ideas, we ate on William Street a few blocks south of Temple Bar. Great little places and the chef at Calzone was an artist with presentation.
