I particularly enjoyed the honey ribs, which were delicious and recommended. Also, as an American, I was impressed with the linens and full... More

We sat in the window overlooking the street in Malahide and watched the passers by whooping for joy after the game. The restaurant soon packed up from the pub, Duffys across the road. The staff were very friendly and... More

Service could do with some work. Had to wait an age to give a drink order. Also it is unprofessional to take the orders... More

We visited recently and had the €16 set menu. Shredded chicken and honey ribs to start and chicken curry and prawn in black bean sauce for mains. We couldn't fault it. The staff were very friendly too.

Plus is malahide not a seaside town! Prawn starter had horrible sweet chilli sauce on it which again was not as described on menu.... More
