With my girlfriends we came to eat in this restaurant, everything was fine until the dessert where when we order with a friend of mine we bring a dessert we say then that it is maybe that the locker did not understand Because we are French and we have trouble pronouncing. But the waiter answers us not your other dessert... More

The location is very nice right on the corner of town with car parking all down the street. There is lots of choice on the menu and is reasonably priced. Lunch is served from 12pm to 5pm so it's great for people that want a late lunch/early dinner. Staff were friendly and the atmosphere is very nice and cosy and... More

Lovely place with great ambiance. I am not usually a steak person but couldn't resist after seeing food being served around us. Perfectly cooked with a enticing presentation. I also saw the vegetarian plate & it looked wonderful too. Will be back in Malahide and back at McGovern's for sure!

My wife and I ate here today and it was fine. My seafood chowder was lovely (not the best in Dublin but very nice) and Jeanette had the Duck salad (tasty but small). Good food but not brilliant, good service and a decent ambiance. Can't say its brilliant but its not bad either, just good.

Very friendly & efficent staff. Nice atmosphere. Great location . Good value for money. Food was nice but the Brie tart had very little Brie in it & a lot of pepper Raghu, very disappointing. Notice board outside showed early bird menu (the main reason we went in) but once inside we were told there was none on a Sunday... More

The food served here was top notch. The best place in Dublin to go for family and/or work occasions such as birthdays, graduations and parties. There is something on the menu for everyone. Chicken salad was beautiful but I would advise those ordering it to ask for dressing on the side as it was generously covered! Portion size is very... More

Bank holiday in October stopped for a late lunch. Did not like the fishy smell, but otherwise the menu was typical and preparation was good--probably 3.5 stars would be the rating. No complaints-clean, basic food, lunch menu cheap and smaller sized--bigger eaters can order off full menu.
