Everyone here was so nice. They fit us in last minute and never made us feel rushed. The food was great we tried a little bit of everything. We sat and enjoyed Irish coffee. The staff was very friendly.

I highly recommend this restaurant for the seafood and in particularly risotto . It was awsome! I took a seabass which was good as well. The staff is super friendly and nice. However we wait a bit too much (30 min) to get our plates....More

We have eaten here a number of times and the staff are always welcoming and friendly. The seafood platter is super tasty and very good value for the amount of food that you get! Restaurant is warm and cosy.

Came over on the train from Dublin for lunch on a cold and blowy day so we were first in the door at lunchtime. Excellent menu, great staff. Was packed by the time we left so best to book

We have a few usual places that we go to when in Howth but we wanted to try something different last week so we gave Deep a go. It wasn't very busy (but it was early on Thursday evening) but the place still felt warm...More

Ordered the seafood platter, no prawns so they gave is 'fish pate' instead. It was not delicious at all. No crab claws so they gave us extra oysters to balance it out. Seriously, you are a seafood restaurant on the pier in Howth, sort it...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!
