Went here with my wife and 8 year old daughter for her birthday, food, service, cost was excellent. Staff treated our daughter like a princess and even had everyone singing 'Happy Birthday' to her. Sometimes it's the little things that matter and I think the...staff went over and above in this case. Food also was fresh, tasty and great portion sizes. Overall a really nice visit, we will be back!More

I couldn't say enough good things about this place, amazing tastey food, (try the wings, wedges, pizza burgers and mostly the ribs) then there is there are the cocktails which are so fab. You will definitely want more. The covid measures in place are above...standard but not in the slightest intrusive on the great experience you will have here. The staff are excellent at what they do and seem so happy to work there which really says a lot about how good a place this really is. All I can say is go visit, eat drink and enjoy because I surely will be returning! Great job i wish there was more places like here!More

It had been over a year since I was here after a less than great experience. I decided to give it another shot as my daughter likes it. I went two weeks ago and again today. Delighted to say great experience both times. first time...we ordered lots of different smaller dishes to try them and today we got chicken quesadillas with a nice salsa, veggie burger, beef burger, onion rings, apple pie and sticky toffee pudding. all surprisingly good. Nice staff too and relaxed atmosphere. suitable for all ages. nice family feel. I will be backMore

We dined here this evening and we were not disappointed. Spotless restaurant, amazing food and fantastic service by Venita. We will definitely be back on our next trip to Malahide. Keep up the good work guys 🙂

I took the train up from Dublin and after walking the castle grounds I found my way down to Scotch Bonnet. Reservations are required right now so please call ahead. I was seated quickly and all the servers were excellent helping each other. My drinks...came right sway. I ordered the wings and pizza the portions were very big and absolutely delicious. The view on the street was very nice and the restaurant is very cool! I recommend visiting Malahide just to visit Scotch Bonnet but the entire town, park, museum, waterfront, and castle make the entire day a great visit!More

Just left a birthday meal at Scotch Bonnet in great spirits with full bellies. Amazing service from the staff, in particular a lovely blonde woman with a multi-coloured mask who served 5 of us on the outdoor decking. Staff made us feel like the outdoor...dining was a privilege rather than a compromise. Will definitely return for the service alone.More

Had a lovely lunch here today (19/12/2020) with my wife, aunt and cousin. It was was all very professional and all Covid-19 measures were met. We all enjoyed ourselves and will definitely be back. Would recommend the Scotch Bonnet for something to eat if you...are in Malahide.More

Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Kevin and the staff are incredible! The BBQ ribs in particular are some of the best I've ever had! Just fall right off the bone! I hope they can reopen soon.
