It was Sunday of the Easter Bank holiday weekend. I was pushed for time. I was in Malahide and knew of the Seabank restaurant though I'd never been there. It's very small place, which is all the more noticeable when you combine that with what appeared to be too many staff. On this occasion a couple of them looked to... More

Very nice French bistro style restaurant near Malahide, specialising in fresh fish. The crab claws in garlic sauce were simple but delicious. Service was friendly. Would return.

I had dinner here last week and it was delicious. The crab claws in garlic butter were amazing! Great wine list and great service. Not cheap but worth the price - really enjoyed it

Great restaurant, will definately be visiting again when we have our next celebration as... More

Have dined here for many years but on this occasion the standard of service was nothing short of abysmal. On arrival, a french guy who appeared to adopt a managerial role in the absence of proprietor John, provided laminated menus - surely an establishment of this calibre should not resort to lamination! He failed to enquire whether aperitifs were required... More

If you are in the Malahide and have not been to Seabank Bistro, you are really missing out on a fabulous meal. If you are staying at a local hotel or golf resort; get a car, get a cab, take a bus, hitch a ride, just get yourself to Seabank Bistro and don't bother with the overpriced, over-rated, under quality...

Quaint, small restaurant right beside our huge hotel - 2 minute walk. Friendly family run place with interesting, modern thinking applied to fresh seafood. Great food, charming staff, memorable experience.
