It never ceases to amaze me the high standard of food that is produced from such a small kitchen! The staff are so efficient and friendly, which all contributes to a great night out. Well... More

A small restaurant in the heart of Malahide worthy of a visit. The menu selection is limited but varied enough to satisfy most. The server and the chef are both very pleasant and the food is excellent. The early bird special is a deal at €59 for a starter and a main. The duck parfait starter was lovely and both... More

Got a big culinary surprise and a good one at that. It changed hands a year ago pity they had to keep the name, as I had a very indifferent experience under the previous owner. Was here on Sunday 25th Sept 2016. Had chicken wings, lots of them with a lovely sauce. We followed these with the best Confit Duck... More

The gambas and the Tuscan fish stew were especially memorable, great french onion soup. House wine good value and very drinkable, overall the whole meal was good value. Its a... More

I moved to Malahide in November from the US, and I have had to try all the local restaurants. The top of my list is Chez Sara, and I have eaten there several times. I also take everyone who is visiting here. I tend to get fish (hake most times), and other friends have gotten the steaks which they really... More

We stayed four nights in Malahide, and on our last night we had dinner at chez Sara. We chose a variety of starters and mains, and could not complain about anything. Starters were mussels, soup, salad, all delicious. Mains were beef, salmon, chicken, again so well cooked and enjoyable. We chatted with the chef at the front, he was so... More
