As a Malahide man originally, when I go home to see family I always make a trip to Howth. Recently I've found Ivan's and have to say its a bit of a gem! I like the restaurant, its airy and modern and in general the staff are great. On our last trip (during the tall ships event) the service was a little slow, but this was one person in particular and when I raised it with the manageress it was dealt with.
Food is excellent, and one of my party had the Lobster (and has eaten Lobster all over the world) and it was superb, perfectly cooked and good value. I had the mixed seafood platter which hit the spot, great fresh seafood washed down with some chilled white wine-a lovely way to spend a Sunday lunchtime!
Having read some of the reviews on here it seems a shame that they are negative, my experiences have always been good overall. Would I go back? For sure! I'm a fan of Ivan's and hope it continues to be a great success for both the locals and tourists. I took friends from overseas and they are already planning to go back on their next visit to Dublin!
