We ate in the tapas bar on a Friday night. 4 of us ordered 10 tapas dishes between us per staff's advice. As the food came out, 3 of us were into our second dish whilst our 4th still was without something to eat. We pointed this out to a waitress only to be greeted with a curt "it's coming!".... More

This is a nice place with good food and friendly service. The food is of high quality and the presentation of the food is very creative and modern, especially the presentation of their desserts! The prices are not cheap, what you can expect in a restaurant in Malahide. For a full Sunday lunch you can easily pay from 80 to... More

First time trying this restaurant. Lovely evening. Nice restaurant and delicious food. Felt it was very reasonably priced - 2 courses and wine for €50 each. Left feeling pleasantly full. Not the best service we have ever had, however was satisfactory and have to say all staff were very polite and friendly. Will definitely return to try to tapas and... More

Having recently returned to the area we thought we would revisit what was a somewhat exclusive restaurant in Malahide. A restaurant that once maintained a dress code has since become very casual from standards to service. Food was beautiful.
