We had a wonderful dinner in this snug cafe. Oysters, seafood chowder, crab and fish cakes were fresh and perfectly prepared. The chowder was the best ever. Wish this place was closer to Georgia and home.

It was a busy sunny Saturday in Howth so the cafe bar was very busy but we got a wee table. The crab open sandwich was really good - fresh crab - and my oysters were delicious. The Guinness was also good.
