I've been to GFP both solo and with friends/my boyfriend several times, and I'm rarely disappointed, so I felt I should write a positive review. Despite being a busy place, I always get seated, and the sea view never gets old. The staff are friendly and accommodating, and there's a relaxed vibe. It can be noisy when there are lots... More

Had heard a lot about Gourmet food parlour so was keen to try it. The place is a little bit quirky in its décor and I liked the overall style. The staff where friendly and attentive. We ordered the breakfast and a quesadillas. Didn't have a long wait, food portion was quiet large and looked well presented. Some of the... More

Went for a stroll of the nearby coastal area 21st Mar and stopped at cafe for coffee and opted for a caramel square. I have no issue with the food. When I went to pay I was told the amount was 7.50 which I thought was incorrect as I had chosen for the menu provided. The caramel square was listed... More

Hi there, Thanks so much for getting in touch. I can assure you that we take all of our customers feedback very seriously. We have a variety of different squares at different prices but you should have been charged 3.25. I have spoken to the team in Malahide to ensure that this does not happen again. All of our items...

My last two visits here was merely for tea and scones so you can't really go wrong there. Visited here yesterday to treat my daughters to lunch and left very disappointed. I ordered the vegetable quesadilla and it lacked any substance at all. It did not have one single kidney bean as indicated on the menu, instead about six lonely... More

Went for lunch here. Kids had very overcooked sausages and chips. Veggie quesadillas were very poor. Place is a bit run down and had my pet hate - a stained menu. Won't be back. Plenty of better places to eat locally.

I eat here and in Swords regularly, on most weekends, and both places are just so inconsistent. I have visited here at the busiest and quietest times and it is just hit and miss with the service and food. Last week, I ordered pancakes in Malahide and was served rock hard reheated pancakes - the knife could not even cut... More

I come here time and time again. It's a lovely spot for lunch or brunch. Friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere, good food that's reasonably priced and a wonderful view over the sea. Definitely recommend it.

My friend and I went here for brunch. We ordered two meals, one with a cup of tea and one with an orange juice. Our food arrived but there was still no sign of our drinks so we asked, we were left waiting a further 10 mins for them. Our food wasn't great and was cold. Very disappointing.

Visited the Gourmet Food Parlour today with some fellow South Africans for a hearty Irish breakfast with smoked salmon on the side. Have wheat-free menu options available. Generous portions, great coffee in pleasant bright surroundings.Lovely coastal views. Child-friendly atmosphere coupled with excellent attentive service, makes for a winning dining experience. Good value for money. Highly recommended!
