Delicious crab claws and prawns

This is a hidden gem. There is a lovely laid back vibe and I've enjoyed myself every time I've gone here. The seafood and fish is so fresh and uncomplicated. Tonight I had prawns and crab claws in a light cream sauce... delicious and delicate

Booked this based upon the number of positive reviews. We weren't disappointed - fresh scallops, fish cakes, Dublin Bay prawns, monkfish, hake and cod! Brian was the perfect host.

We ate at Hemmingways last night. Agree completely with the previous reviews. Our host was relaxed and very friendly and set a great tone for the evening. Service was unhurried and allowed us to enjoy the buzz and the great food. We picked fish but I feel certain non fish eaters would be equally well catered for. Cod, halibut, fish... More

Brian has a great little place (maybe 30 seats total) and we enjoyed our meal very much. We went here b/c we could walk over from the Clontarf Castle Hotel and the TripAdvisor ratings are almost too good to be true. We had two-course meals with starters of scallops and seafood chowder. Both were excellent. Mains were the
