So you want to bring your mammy somewhere nice to eat, but you're not too sure where.

You probably don't want to be taking her somewhere where she can't hear herself think, doesn't like the cut of that shifty-lookin' waiter, or deems the menu to have more notions than food.

In no particular order, here are 10 thoroughly mammy-friendly spots in the capital

1. Avoca

A classic name in Dublin mammy-friendly restaurant circles ,and a very reliable spot to go for some tasty grub.

An Irish Mammy favourite if there ever was one.

2. 37 Dawson Street

You might be more used to dancing the night away in this late bar, but don't let that fool you into thinking it's not mother friendly.

The powers-that-be in here are super fast at turning the tables and getting the place cleaned up for an amazing brunch and lunch menu.

4. The Exchequer

This gastropub loves serving up great big hunks of meat, and if you're well enough organised you can order a roast beef in advance for four or a roast chicken for two, although you do have to place your order by Friday.

Luckily, the rest of the menu is pretty epic too.
