Lunch with a view

Nice relaxing venue, sign lovely view of the coast. Hot food was delicious, a friend had a sandwich that looked far too bread heavy and a bit dry. Service was hit and miss, though always polite and friendly and probably down to the fact that it was a busy Sunday. Will definitely be back!

A great place for lunch, good service, a large tasty menu and sea views. I have used this restaurant several times for lunch as I live nearby and have always been happy with the food and the service.

Visited the restaurant last Sunday with my parents, wife and small child and everyone enjoyed themselves. The food was lovely (burger and sweet potato fries very tasty) and the staff couldn't have been more friendly. Very child friendly with loads of space between the tables. Well worth a visit and you also have the added benefit of enjoying the scenic... More

This is a great family and especially small child friendly restaurant. Situated on the coastal road in Malahide North Dublin the restaurant has a glass wall on the side facing the sea allowing for fabulous amounts of light and an amazing view. The food was fantastic, the waiting staff were helpful and attentive and they have a small area in... More

We arrived in for tapas to be told it was a €35 per person set menu. Under a bit of duress (people were hungry and there aren't many other options very close by) I said ok but soon regretted it. The food was nice but there was just too much considering we only wanted some tapas. We had to pay... More

We had brunch here recently. Very handy stop off if kids are playing in Gannon park playground. The view is great overlooking the island and sea. Really stunning. There are tables outside which is an improvement. The gym next door is very prominent. Service somewhat slow the staff didn't seem too bothered. The breakfast brunch options are reasonable but food... More
