Been many times over some years and never disappointed. Good food, friendly service, moderate prices. Early Bird 2 courses is particularly good value.

We had the large seafood platter to share. Lots a variety and very tasty and plentiful. The chowder looked amazing but the platter had us stuffed. At a glance a glass of wine seemed quite expensive at €9.00 but it was a very large measure....More

Seafood is a must-have at Howth, and Deep Restaurant never fails to deliver. We had a seafood platter, crab risotto, garlic prawns, soup of the day, and a coffee each. Wait staff were surprised that we could finish it all, but the food was just...More

A night out with two of our daughters for a catch up and some good food. Chatting was easy as the noise level was low and the food was excellent. The service was timely but not rushed and very friendly. The seafood was fresh and...More

We had the early bird special and everyone ordered something different. Fish Pie, Sea Bass, Salmon Trout and Salmon. All were very satisfied I think the Salmon Trout was best. Service and attitude was extremely pleasant. Great meal.

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.

I went with my mum and 3 month old baby (in her buggy) and the waitress made room for us and was very accommodating. We went after lunch on a Monday so there was only a few occupied tables. We ordered the calamari and fish...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!
