We had a wonderful dinner in this snug cafe. Oysters, seafood chowder, crab and fish cakes were fresh and perfectly prepared. The chowder was the best ever. Wish this place was closer to Georgia and home.

It was a busy sunny Saturday in Howth so the cafe bar was very busy but we got a wee table. The crab open sandwich was really good - fresh crab - and my oysters were delicious. The Guinness was also good.

This was a lovely discovery, had a vegetarian dish and an amazing glass of white wine for dinner. Small place, but great atmosphere! I also love going there for coffee and sit outside looking at the pier :)

Enjoyed Monkfish with Spring Vegetables , with Mussel Cream. The Monkfish was fresh & full of flavour, complimented by the lovely combination of the green veggies & the Mussels in a very light Cream. We chose an Austrian White Wine ( Grunner). Very good wine...More
