Best food, value and service in Malahide.

We dine here regularly and it is always an enjoyable experience. Our daughter home on holidays from San Francisco, where she has eaten in many great restaurants, rated the food in Bon Ap as the best.

We've eaten in both the casual and formal parts of this restauarant; hey have now closed the formal fine dining and are focusing on more affordable, accessible food without all the Michelin fuss. A good idea but at the moment they are somewhat in transition. The positives: food still high standard-my lamb was excellent and juicy if tad small; others... More

We visited here recently on a business trip, it was recommended by friends. All the staff were very welcoming and friendly. It is not a cheap restaurant, but the food was amazing, with really good flavours and well presented. Would definitely recommend.

We visited recently for a special occasion. The staff were most welcoming & very polite. Our food was amazing and cooked to perfection. I had lamb on a bed of crushed suede... It was very flavoursome. Our starters & deserts were great also! We will definitely return for tapas and cocktails!

Visited with a group and we sampled a lot of dishes, from Sea Bream, lamb, monkfish, duck and steak, as well as five kinds of potato dishes - all fresh, correct temperature, perfectly prepared and seasoned. My starter and dessert were based on pannacotta and were simply delicious. Portions were perfect. Service was as it should be.
