If you want fresh seafood served this is the place to eat. The calamaris were fab, fresh and not rubbery as was the grilled mackerel. Our waiter was so attentive and very friendly. Thanks for s lovely meal

I don’t want to accept such rude behaviour. Correct, I should have seen the little sign: wait to be seated. But the way they complimented me out and requested to be patient and stay and wait outside until asked is unacceptable. Sorry.More

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.
