One of our favourite restaurants... We were miles away from Howth and decided we'd have bite to eat and looked at each other and both suggested the same place... Lovely little place, step in to a warm place and a warm welcome as some how...More

A super November lunch with great fish, very good advice on wine (and not the most expensive) and excellent service - attentive but not intrusive. High quality food and good value. Dingle Oysters a real bonus. Will definitely return soon.

We had lunch at Deep when we visited Ireland in May. There are a lot of great looking restaurants in Howth so it was tough to decide on which one to go to. We picked Deep because they had a great sampler platter. It didn't...More

Two friends and a baby had a wonderful time here. Mussels, seafood stew and re snapper were consumed with 2 glasses of Sauvignon. Dining room is comfortable and service was flawless. Great casual dining.

Have just had the most amazing meal here . The seafood platter was so fresh and the battered fish was to die for. I succumbed to a toffee and pecan roulade that was lush . The service was impeccable definitely a highlight of my 50th...More

They've got a couple of rave reviews from newspapers displayed in their restaurant, but unfortunately I didn't note which papers they were. Their seafood was incredibly fresh, perhaps bought right off of the docks. We had incredible fried oysters and a hearty seafood chowder as appetizers, then an earlybird seafood special for two for dinner which included fishcakes, crawfish, mussels, Dublin Bay Prawns, squid, smoked salmon, and a small salad. Beautifully plated, amazingly delicious. I hope you're able to get more info because this place is not to be missed!
