We could have been in Le Suquet, Cannes. From the bread and tapenade, right through to creme brulee, every mouthful was heavenly. The staff were so attentive without being annoying. The wines were also perfect, a crisp, cold white and a light, balanced red. Couldn't...fault a thing. Speaks volumes that I'm only home ten minutes before writing this. Had to share.More

My wife and I saw this lovely Bistro while we were taking an evening walk along the coast road. On our way back to the hotel we stopped by and asked if they had any openings for this evening. Initially the answer was no however...when we explained it was our last night in Ireland they squeezed us in. It was an awesome dining experience. The service was impeccable and the food was even better. It was truly the best dining experience we had during our stay.More

I haven't eaten here in over 15 years and it is even better than I remembered it. The menu is mainly seafood but there are also meat options. I had the daily specials of Scallops San Jaques and Lobster Pasta and both were delicious,all washed...down with a lovely New Zealand sauvignon blanc.More

We have eaten in Seabank many times and it never disappoints. The food is excellent, whether you order off the a la carte menu or the specials board. This evening, the dishes we had (scallops, crab claws, halibut and fish and chips) were all superb....The service is also excellent, with friendly and efficient servers. It’s a really busy restaurant, with lots of regulars. Highly recommended!More

Was looking forward to visiting the restaurant but after making telephone calls and messenger couldnt manage to book. Even called in the restaurant to book only to be told to book on line. It's supposed to be easy ......

Lovely restaurant that offers a choice of fish and meat. Great food and very attentive staff. Service was quick and the staff were very welcoming. It is always a pleasure to come back to this restaurant. Highly recommended if in Malahide or north Dublin

This was our first time trying this restaurant. We were very impressed and will definitely be back. Its a little pricey but worth it. Delicious food and great service. I had a starter of stir fry beef in a filo basket, I'd go back just...for that! My husband loves seafood and said the prawns in garlic were the best he's ever had. Were looking forward to going back.More

The service and the food was fantastic. Prawns and a Goats Cheese Salad to start, perfectly cooked steaks as mains and delicious sticky toffee pudding and pavlova to finish. Just delicious, start to finish. Not our first visit and certainly won’t be our last.

Seafood fantastic and innovative, cooked to perfection. Vegetables – a sad, overcooked and tasteless afterthought. Service was slow and not very attentive – one of the extras we asked for never arrived. Only the alcohol was being refilled promptly. No water on the table. No...allergens listed on the menu and no alternatives offered, just strip the dish of butter. (Do you not have olive oil somewhere in the kitchen?!) For this price range you would expect a better treatment.More

The restaurant has a white board displaying specials. I do not know how often the items change since I've only been there once but there was quite a number of choices shown both meat and fish
