Recommended to us by our cousin, we visited this restaurant with high hopes and it didn't disappoint. We had crab cakes on Irish Soda Bread and Grilled lobster with steak fries. One of the better meals we had in Ireland and there were many.

We spent the day in Howth and stopped by Octopussy's for lunch. It was great. Awesome mussels, we both had the fish and chips and a glass of wine. It's a small spot but was worth waiting for a table. Would go back.

The service was great but the food was all around mediocre. I would have expected much higher quality. We returned the calamari. The shrimp was overcooked and the potato tapa as made from what seemed to be frozen hashbrowns. Atmosphere is great, good wine - but don't expect much on the food.

We had a late lunch here after taking the boat tour of the bay. The special was King Scallops with Whiskey Cream sauce. The food was outstanding! We asked for more bread just to sop up all the sauce. Great location on the water. So wish this place was local for us!!

I had a lovely afternoon here with great wine and tasty tapas. The mussels were particularly nice. I will be back!
