This is a convenient restaurant on the docks of Howth. It has a rather wide range of fish dishes. It is a bit noisy, and the service is a bit slow, especially on public holidays. All in all, a good experience.

We had the Irish coffee and Bailey coffees. Both are very good. Staff are pleasant. Nice, clean environment. They also sell hot food and fresh fish. Check it out if you have a chance!

One waitress got my order wrong and insisted she was right. Incredibly rude reaction, the management were quite apologetic but the damage had been done by that stage. Food was good but not worth the ordeal.

The fish and chips were decent and the staff was friendly. The food was prepared quickly and I was able to enjoy my meal with an amazing view of the harbour.

Great coffee served here by very welcoming staff, especially the very friendly Kate. After a healthy walk around the cliffs there's nothing nicer to look forward to than a coffee and maybe a sneaky sweet treat enjoyed at a table in the morning sunshine, what...More
