I used to really like this place, but it has gone very downhill It has a great location, looking at the sea, big, spacious, with free parking - but the food is hit and miss - and it's a bit shocking as it seems like it should be hard to get wrong! My most recent visit - I'd been warned... More

We went out for a late lunch, easily seated without a booking. There was plenty of choice on the menu to please everyone. Food was a bit slow to arrive but was delicious and was good sized portions and good value for money. Will definitely come again.

Only noticed this location while on a walk along the coast road and decided to stop for lunch on the way back from Portmarnock, we have previously been regulars in the former Ballyboughal and current Swords parlours and as usual for a GFP there was a short wait for a table. Generally we would prefer to sit at a table... More

I was here with a friend last month for lunch and had the salad special. Chicken fillet, beautiful sun-dried tomatoes, rocket leaves and I asked for some porter cheddar as an addition, my God it was delicious! The sweet balsamic dressing finished it off beautifully, hats off to the chef! I know salads aren't difficult but I appreciate when they... More

My wife and I had a most enjoyable lunch here this Friday afternoon. I went for the hot seafood special (prawns, calamari, hake, chips, salad and alioli) - absolutely delicious. The better half had a very well prepared and tasty caesar salad. We finished off with tea and a latte. Service was great and prices very reasonable. And the views... More

I booked a take in advance as it was recommended to me by a friend. When we arrived, the maitre d' remembered our conversation and gave us a very warm welcome. The ambiance was chilled and the selection of food for a Sunday morning brunch was perfect. Each staff member that we encountered was friendly and courteous. It was good... More
