I have been here a few times before with my wife and over the past while we have monitored and recorded the food being sent to us. We order the same meal each time as its what we like but have noticed from each time going that the food is getting less and less and standards and quality of food... More

Our waiter was excellent and was extremely attentive to our needs. We had chicken wings, chips and beers. I have eaten a lot of chicken wings in Dublin and whilst Elephant and Castle and Tribeca's are very good, i maintain that the Harbourmaster's are the best. Nice spot to chill out before catching the Dart / Train from Connolly station... More

We went there tonight without a reservation and it was quite busy, the staff behind the bar were busy but friendly and the restaurant staff done their best and seated us very quickly, the food was hot & tasty and served with a smile. Would recommend this great little spot to everyone

Harbour master is one of the best restaurants in Dublin. Quit spacious and great decorated inside. We enjoyed evening with quality food and drinks which made our evening memorable as one of the nice evening with friends.

While the grand design and the lay out of the restaurant is quite impressive, service and food was shockingly bad. Place rated 10th on Lovindublin for chicken wings experience but the dish served to us was not that edible at all. Large portion of greasy and dry and tasteless and very horrible looking things. Any local cheaper would do much... More

The food in the harbourmaster is easily some of the best around the IFSC, the chicken wings, club sandwich but to name a couple never disappoint. When it comes to a place for a pint, it just lacks that pub vibe about it, albeit I'm sure it's main aim is food, could do with a few high tables to gain... More
