Have never had anything other than exceptional food here, especially fish. Small but cosy rather than pokey. Do book though we hadn't and we were still made feel very welcome. Great food/fish shop too.

A wonderful restaurant which is a definite must if you visit beautiful Dun Laoghaire. A small restaurant with around 8 tables, so booking is essential in the evenings and sometimes at lunchtimes, esp if you have a large party of people. Food is that fresh and tastes divine...Well worth the trip if like me you're coming from Dublin (around 25... More

Went here for our wedding anniversary dinner. Lovely restaurant which only opens a few evenings each week and seats probably less than 20 people at a time. The menu is quite small which is often a good thing and what they do they do very, very well. The food was excellent and the staff were very friendly. For a special... More

Had a fabulous lunch here, the food has always been cooked to perfection and today they lived up to my expectation. Both myself and my wife got the Lunch Special, Hake with a lobster sauce, with a glass of sauvignon blanc for 22.50, a bargain!! It comes with a simple salad of leaves, tomatoes and toasted seeds, boiled potato in... More

We had an excellent meal here. My partner started out with grilled sardines; I had smoked salmon. Never having had anything other than tinned sardines before, we both especially enjoyed having something new. My partner had the salmon main and i had the cod with a delicious mustard sauce. The mains were generous portions of fish, and came with loads... More

We were fortunate enough to wander in on a Friday afternoon lunchtime and get a table, as there was a late cancellation. Definitely recommend booking, as it is worth it! What a great way to spend an afternoon, eating fabulous seafood and drinking lovely wine.

We went here for lunch on a weekend and were able to be seated without a booking (probably recommend making a booking to guarantee a table). The service was good, the food was nice. While it was a pleasant experience the one thing which let it down was the Chardonnay I ordered wasn't cold.

We had a family lunch at Cavistons that was wonderful. We were late but they were gracious and fed us promptly without rushing so we would be out by the next seating. The food was fresh and delicious. Most ordered off the menu but a few meals were pre-ordered. They were lovely about preparing a chicken dish or steak for... More

This place is so nice to go for a healthy treat. The food from the deli is delicious and to be fair, it's really well priced for what you're getting. Definitely worth going to for lunch.
