We celebrated my mother in laws 80th birthday here. The private rooms comprised a reception area and a dining area for around 30 of us. It was spacious with tall cielings and warmly decorated. Food and wines that were prearranged were superb. A special note goes to Emmet who was our host for the evening serving drinks and making all... More

I've been here a few times and it's a bit hit and miss. Tapas can be nice but most are nothing special. It's very expensive for what you get. Thursday evenings offer five euro cocktails which are a huge rip off, there's little or no alcohol in them. We received an apology from the bar staff when we mentioned this... More

We went here for a birthday meal but unfortunately we were placed next to a group of middle aged women who seemed to want the whole restaurant to hear their conversation. That's not the restaurants fault but the poor food was. If the lemon mash potato with the Swordfish is meant to be cold, Say that on the menu! I... More

We chose Bon Appétit for a birthday lunch before visiting Malahide Castle and Malahide village. The food, wine and friendly professional service did not disappoint us. The fixed lunch menu offered a good choice for a fair price served very beautifully. The desserts were also delicious. The waiter brought out a candle and sung happy birthday as a surprise at...

We visited this restaurant last weekend to celebrate our anniversary dinner anf I could not praise it highly enough. We arrived somewhat early however this was no issue as we were shown to the wonderful tapas and cocktail bar downstairs. Usually my experience with nicer cocktail bars has been all price and name with no flavour, I can thankfully assure... More

I've been here a good few times and it has been consistently very good to excellent. The standard has dropped in the last 2 years after they changed their fine dining offering but it is still one of my favourites.
