Outstanding service! The Owner was very welcoming and accommodating. Would definitely, highly recommend, anyone to come here for something to eat. The food was amazing. So fresh, and so tasty. We all had a starter, main AND a dessert and returned empty plates all round....Best I’ve had in ages.More

Excellent good cooked to perfection. Falafel lovely, fresh and flavorsome. Spicy potatoes fab and finished off with mixed seafood platter for 2. BYOB is very handy, once you remember. Asked for takeaways menu on way out but we'll be back too. Staff very friendly and...effort.More

I was recommended The Grill House by a friend,as I live nearby and had never before tried it. This must be the only restaurant in Swords which not only allows you to bring along your own alcohol (they do not sell alcohol,only soft drinks) but...do not even charge you a corkage fee - happy days! I wish more restaurants would adopt this pleasing policy. Also,unlike a lot of other restaurants in the area,who post Covid won't even take bookings and expect you to come along and queue,this establishment took our booking over the phone no problem and advised of the Covid indoor and outdoor dining regulations. We were greeted on arrival by welcoming and friendly staff,who checked our Covid vaccine certs and photo IDs and then seated us inside,as it was lashing rain. The décor is rustic,with a middle eastern vibe,reflecting the theme and food of the restaurant. The menu is extensive and everything looked so delicious that we had problems narrowing it down to what we wanted. We eventually (and greedily!!) opted for 4 starters and a mixed grill for 2 for a main (there were 2 of us). We had stuffed vine leaves,calamari,falafel and chicken wings for starters,all which were absolutely delicious,as was the mixed grill. The flavours,marinades and spices were sublime. Even the flatbread and rice which came with the mixed grill tasted fresh and home made. The staff here are top notch,professional,polite and friendly and I cannot wait to go here again.More

Now this is a little Lebanese gem.We sat outside,summer evening,and had a couple of lovely Swharmma,if that's the correct spelling,dishes,with fresh flatbread and tzatsiki.The homemade lemonade is refreshingly natural and the Coffee is very good.plus the prices are reasonable and the food plentiful Worth a...visit when in Swords.More

Outstanding chicken Shawarma. Probably the best I have had so far in Ireland, UK, Canada and the Middle East!

We used to go down to the Grill house often for dinner and lunch... but when lock down happened and we moved house it wasnt an option. I work local and i looked up the website for lunch. Makarem was SO facilitating to make sure...i could get some lunch for myself and a couple of guys in the office. This food was as fresh and as tasty as i remembered. ALWAYS made with a smile and care. I got the Chicken Shish and spiced potatoes... SO TASTY. One of my collegues commented that it was the tastiest meal he has had in a LONG TIME. Please support this local business as it needs us. So much delicious tasty food so a great price. Thanks as always Makarem !More
