We choose this restaurant due to reviews and the fact that had a Michelin star, we traveled from Dublin 18 to check it out. On entering we were asked to seat beside the family with 2 months old baby! We asked for different table and this was refused, 3/4 restaurant was empty!! I kept asking about other table and I... More

We had a return visit to Bon Appetit mid week recently. I am not that mad keen on the basement location of the restaurant, but they have made it as bright as possible given the building restrictions. On the night they were reasonably busy, though it did clear out rather earlier than we had expected. There is a reasonably good... More

Food amazing but when we produced our prebought vouchers, the attitude of the staff changed for the worst. Disappointing as food so good. They shouldn't sell vouchers if they don't want customers to use them.

We went here on an Irish Times rewards meal deal and I must say I was very impressed with the food and service received. The last time I was here the restaurant had a Michelin star and was very high end. He has now handed back the star and aimed at a more general broad base clientele base. The food... More

We were taken here by friends and it looked promising from entry to table, however things did not go so well from there. The waiting staff seemed to be confused as to who had order what the service was patchy at best. The food was well cooked if a little reminiscent of nouvelle cuisine of the 80's. However the issue...

This is one of my favourite places to eat in malahide. The tapas here are lovely. I had the salad with feta and orange. It was very good. My fiancé had the black pudding with a egg. They do the most amazing gin and tonics and they do them in so many ways. If you are in malahide I would... More

Took my mum to dinner, and we both had great food and a pleasant evening. We both ended up eating from the early bird menu and were not disappointed! Good food, adequate portions, prompt service and good value. The restaurant became busy, with a good buzz upstairs in the bar and taps area also. Would recommend and will return!

Visited with business colleagues, and was not disappointed. The specials were outstanding and for a Tuesday night all was excellent. Choice on the menu was extensive. Well worth the visit and will be back soon.

Had a meal with a friend in the tapas bar. Wonderful ambience, varied cocktail and tapas menu. The sharing dessert was to die for and such good value! I can't wait to return. The set up in the tapas bar is all high tables and high stools - may not be to everyone's taste but perfect for us! The staff... More
