“French foodie heaven”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2014

Fantastic intimate restaurant in Malahide with excellent food & wine and in particular delicious steak.

Great atmosphere sitting at the front of the restaurant too where you can watch the chef cook everything right in front of you - feels a little like having been transported to a tiny restaurant in a small town in France somewhere (....especially when you try their amazing mussels!)

Was almost afraid to write a review at all as I agreed with one earlier reviewer who said they sometimes think its one of the best kept secrets in Dublin but, its easily one of the best restaurants in the area and not to be missed!

This was a lucky find. We had a wonderful lunch and enjoyed it so much that we returned for dinner. Delicious, quality food. The house red was very acceptable!

“Intimate Dining Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2014 via mobile

Phoned late and got a table on a Thursday night.
On arrival the restaurant is tiny, 20 covers perhaps at most but don't let this put you off.
Starters of fish cakes for the lady and I had the smokies, could not fault them, tasted great and were plentiful.
The main courses of Salmon for myself and Confit Duck for the good lady were decadent, duck was super tender, and the salmon was both crispy skinned and delightfully moist.
The dessert of creme brûlée which we shared was also perfect.
If Chez Sarah was a 50 seat restaurant I'm pretty sure it would be full most nights.
Certainly I for one will return when next in this area of the country.

“Great atmosphere, delicious food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014

First time here having bypassed it regularly for my fave other restaurant in Malahide. But will definitely be back. Faultless service, delicious food (still dreaming of mushroom sauce with real mushrooms). Great ambiance. Try the lamb shank....Yum!
