I chose the chef's special, sort of bouillabaisse, and liked that a lot even if it was really messy dish to eat it. Very recommendable.

I recently went here for breakfast on a Sunday. We were lucky to get a spot outside the café, as it was a sunny day! Tables here are hard to come by. There's usually no problem with tables inside. The breakfast is served from 10-12 on weekends and they stop serving at about five to twelve, so don't be late!... More

Went there with my husband for a romantic dinner. What a great place! A lovely atmosphere, friendly staff. We had a Seafood Platter no. 2 + some oysters. Definitely enough for two people. We will come back for sure.

Dropped into Deep for lunch recently with my partner and we thoroughly enjoyed the fish pie and the paella.

Enjoyed the fresh-off-the-dock seafood and friendly staff. Very convenient to the quay and to the Dublin bus stop. Quick food service & tasty meal.

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!
