Tasty Food, Great Location

Food was great! I had the penne pasta with prawns and chorizo and it was very tasty and my daughter had fish and chips - fish was so delicious, as it should be in Howth! Service was excellent, could not fault the food at all. My only gripe was paying almost Euro6 for two bottles of water - I... read more

Really enjoyed it. Varied menu at a reasonable price. Very busy but spacious so it doesn't feel crowded. Suited for couples, groups friends and people with kids-I was here with my fiance but saw a lot of families with small children there too

I love this place!.. My inital motivation for venturing in was its location and I guessed from the outside that views from the third floor Sky Bar would be incredible. However I didn' t expect the food to be nearly as good as it was. Top quality and delicious and even better at an affordable price. Delighted with this discovery... More

We made a very nice trip to Howth and ate in this amazing restaurant! Of course we enjoyed the fishmeal, one of us ate fish and chips (delicious), others salmon (excellent)!

I've always like this bar and restaurant but it really blew my away this time. We had a voucher for the restaurant for a seafood sharing platter for two, surf and turf for two and two bellinis. The seafood platter was amazing - seabass carpaccio, crab, prawns and smoked salmon served with warm toast. Everything was so fresh and full... More

Very pretty, clean and fantastic views. Food however is mixed with a 2 out of 3. Chicken Caesar salad was great as was liver pate but traditional fish and chips was dire - oily batter where I could taste the oils yuck and mushy fish. Service was mediocre - asked for scallion and capers to be left off salad -... More

My wife and I have eaten in Findlater's a number of times and found the food excellent. Our most recent experience was no different. We had mussels for starters and while it was a good size portion the mussels were small. For the main course I had steak and it was excellent. It was cooked exactly as I ordered and... More

It was a Saturday evening and we arrived en spec in Howth foolishly without a dinner reservation. After several no's we went upstairs to the restaurant where there were quite a few tables and we were not long finding out why! It took forever for someone to come and give us menus despite the place not being busy, even longer... More

Love this little fishing village so much and every chance we had to escape Dublin we would head out to the harbor. The cuisine is delicious (had a version of Serf and Turf) but it was expensive for such a small portion. It was displayed beautifully but not a large portion...didn't matter it was the best I have ever had.... More
